Here is Section 14. Very haunting and atmospheric. Leaves you thinking about what is going on - I could easily see this as an old black and white movie. Delightful.

Yes, another odd one. Some good bizarre images in there (talking seagull hat??)

PL OK. Thanks, Todd!

Sections 16, 17, and 18 (the dramatic readings) are now ready for PL. As we don't have a dedicated PLer, I would be grateful for the assistance of anyone who fancies listening to these oddball stories.

Hi Rob!

I'd love to PL sections 16 and 18 but since I did some of the reading in section 17 I think it would be better if someone else did the PL for that.

Hi Rob!

Sections 16 and 18 are both very well edited and the reading is absolutely wonderful! :9: I really enjoyed listening to this very much! So they're both PL ok as far as I'm concerned.

One remark though: I'm not sure how strict one has to be with the duration of the 5 seconds of silence at the end. The silence of section 18 is a tad over 5 seconds (00:00:111 to be precise).

Thanks, Kate!

I also don't know about the 5 seconds thing. I don't think it has to be exact exact (or probably I would have been asked to make edits by MCs before now), so I will leave it in this case as it's not drastically over.

The 5 seconds silence is becuz some mp3 players will cut files off short. So with the silence they don't cut off our glowing speech. It can be a bit longer without issue.

Thanks, Todd

Thanks, Todd. Been a while since I read the guidelines. Good to have a reminder.

I PLed section 17 for you. PL OK. Love the role of the Lady, that's awesome. :lol:

Section 28 may also be marked as PL OK.

As the remaining three sections are quite overdue now (perfectly understandable) I have decided to release them and claim them for myself, in the hopes that we can get this project over the line in the next few days.
