Omigosh i love the "Eugene Pinto" version. So beautiful! Hmm, you'll think I'm being sarcastic or funny but I'm not -- I seriously found it a beautiful reading. Brings to mind a slower time, a less perfectionist time, a less homogenous time.

Please have him read for us again :)

Would you please ask Eugene if he would like a URL attached to his name on the catalog page?
I'm glad Eugene struck your fancy! Though I have lived in Seattle many years, I was born in Dallas, Texas. My father was the son of a tenant farmer in Denton County during the last Great Depression until he ran away to join the Navy in time to experience the bombing of Pearl Harbor first hand. My mother was from Massachusetts. I guess that makes me conflicted! :lol:

Go ahead and give Eugene the same URL as mine. "Ah don't think much a them 'puters and don't need me none a that email, neither!" he is fond of saying. I'll make sure he gets any messages.

He might like some of that Huck Finn action, too!

I don't think you are being sarcastic at all and completely understand your response. Eugene has been a huge comfort to me during some trobled times (get those guys with the white coats away from me!). His reading was not meant as a joke, though he doesn't mind if you get a laugh out of his mispronunciations and such.

Don't worry, he likes to talk-- he'll be back.

Okay, no email link for Kayvan and URL link to Robert for Eugene. :)

Robert - I'm actually doing Huck Finn solo for my podcast but you're welcome to do some other Twain! Check the suggested books forum. Of course you can always do your own Huck Finn if you'd like.

Oops! I blundered again! :?

I didn't realize that Huck was going to be a solo project! (Too many links, too few clicks...)

I do have some plans for Twain but they don't nclude the troubled Huckleberry. But that leads me to a question...

When I peruse the Project Gutenberg lists, I note that some of publications have links to audio books. I haven't investigated any further but are these audio books related to what is happening here at LibriVox?

Thanks for keeping me straight!

I love listening to everyone's renditions. How interesting to hear the poem through so many different voices! It took me a while to figure out how to do the saving and uploading since this is my first recording, but here it is:

Well you've got a great level of volume Beth :) I think you read it at a pretty good speed too.

I've checked out some of Gutenberg's audio recordings, and most of them that I've found are computer generated. They're alright for computer generated. I have, however, found a few human created ones. I think one of them was a Sherlock Holmes book.

Thanks for the explanation, Kristin. ::sigh:: Now I suppose I will have to go listen to one of them just to see how the programmers are doing with that emotional content algorithm in the speech recognition software. Wonder if they've got it sounding like the voice out of that HAL9000 computer yet?

I just went through and listened to all the renderings of this poem once more. I am completely tickled by each interpretation and happy that there is a place like this where so many voices, from so many places can be heard.

So I say thank you again to all those who are working behind the scenes to keep this place humming.

At the time of this posting, I noticed the site is six clicks away from turning 500 registered users. And I hope that all of you will, at one time or another, take a turn at one of these poems. Let all the voices be heard! :D

Hi Beth,

Your recording sounds great, very clear and well paced and great recording quality! Next time, please be sure to check the first post in the thread for how to format the filename and ID3 tags. I tweaked them after I downloaded your file, but if you could be careful of that with your next recording, that would be great. If you need help with how to format your ID3 tags, let me know or post in the Need Help? forum.

One last thing, if you could please let me know, either on this thread or with a PM or email, how you want your name to appear on the catalog page and if you have a personal website you want your name to link to, that would be great.

Thanks!

Hi everybody,

here's mine:

http://s5.yousendit.com/d.aspx?id=3V464LDK1A4TL3DOSALGBBY785

I love this part of the forum. a) beautiful poetry, b) you get to hear so many different voices, accents etc reading the same words, c) it's a great idea to have a "sandbox"!
