"Sassafras is oleaginous" - aaargggh. Took too many attempts. Please don't say it's wrong!

Best,
Adrian

PL OK! That phrase rolled off your tongue effortlessly and beautifully - at least, in the final edit. :lol:

Hi Tricia:

Section 13 with a time of 18:49:95

https://librivox.org/uploads/triciag/elia_13_lamb_128kbps.mp3

I left the footnote in, just in case someone isn't familiar with Kubla Khan and pleasure domes!! If you prefer it taken out just let me know.

Thanks
Sandra

Section 13:

17:15 - "careering over the main" - lip smack right after this sentence. Your recordings are so clean, I thought you'd like me to point out this little anomaly. :)

The footnote seems out of place, since the listener doesn't know to what it's referring. (I didn't except for your post.) Perhaps it would be best to insert it at about 13:54, where it is referenced in the text?

I'll listen to 15 shortly. :)

You don't say how many more you'd like to claim. Since you just submitted two, how about two more? 24 and 25?

Section 18 PL OK!

Section 50 - it's read well, but I find it very hard to understand. I assume it's the microphone - the sound is muffled, such that the words are hard to make out. :? Do you have a different microphone you could use?
Hi, is this better?

Welcome! I'll put you in. :)

Please complete the 1-minute test before you start in on these. That way you can be sure your tech settings are all OK before investing a lot of time recording.

How would you like to be credited in the catalog? There are places for a catalog name (some use a nickname or forum name, some their real name) and a link to a personal web site or blog, if you have one. I recommend using whatever name you say (if any) when you say, "recorded by [your name]" as that's how listeners will look for you. (Keep in mind that prospective employers, classmates, enemies, etc. can also find you using the catalog name, so be cautious if privacy might be an issue.)

Thanks, Tricia.

I completed the one-minute test. Should I post it here or in the "Listeners and Editors Wanted" forum?

Also is it possible to stay anonymous in the catalog?

Listeners & Editors Wanted, please. :)

Hmm. I could put you in as "Anonymous" if you want, or I could use "colson" if you're OK with the generic-ness of that?

Or "John/Jane Doe"? :lol:

Hi Tricia:

Here is section 13 amended. I took out the lip smack that I missed, ha ha I must have been enjoying myself.
A time of 18:44:96. I took out reference to the poem, it interfered with the flow, no matter where I put it.

https://librivox.org/uploads/triciag/elia_13_lamb_128kbps.mp3

I will gladly taken 24 and 25. Thanks. Can I take 26 and 27 as well that will keep me busy for a while. Thanks

Sandra
