Recording an old 1840's poem about a murder, I found it very graphic. Hubby was walking through the room, so I was commenting to him:

As far as I know, I have been able to reinstate all blooper links except those which were uploaded to the dev server in Aug/Sept 2013. If any other links in this thread don't work, let me know.

In the middle of recording a rather gruesome chapter of my solo, I was wondering who on earth would find the following sight appealing :shock: ... oh, I read it wrong. Changes the meaning slightly :lol:

Bloopers? Well, I don't know if it's because I'm a newbie but it took nearly double the recording time to get through this 13 minute story. Here are some of the mistakes:

OMG that was hilarious! :lol: Don't worry though it's completely normal. Sometimes I mess up so much I start screaming and throwing things. (Please don't judge)

I can definitely relate to the "total meltdown" part at the end. :mrgreen:
