Here comes Rosa:
That's some freakish accent :shock: Half of the time I wasn't sure what I was talking about. :?
:shock: yes this is some sort of Cockney, probably tinged with Irish. These 'h' in all the wrong places make it extremely difficult :lol: I think you got into character (and dialect) quite well rapidly. By the end you were nearly fluent native speaker :mrgreen:

Wonderful performance, poor Rosa really sounds very embarrassed in many scenes, feeling self-conscious in this new society. But she can be fierce too. :thumbs: I enjoyed it.

Acts 1 and 3 are already PL ok.

Only a very trivial thing for Act 2, I only mention it to make Todd's job easier, if you wouldn't mind:

> from 0:29 to 0:36: (p. 111) you have 3x "Yus" here, in the book there are only 2 before "Dunno". Would you want to cut one of the versions, so Todd has every snippet in the correct order ?

thank you, Availle ! Really a challenging role.

Here is the rest of Julie:
wonderful, Jenn, this accent is simply delicious for Julie Maud. I marvel how you made it sound so fluent. :thumbs: You and Tomas will be a great double-act in these scenes.

Both parts PL ok. Thank you so much.

Well that means all the parts are in the box. Todd will have a nice surprise when he comes back. Off to editing !!! So looking forward to hearing all this assembled.

Needless to say, I hope we'll all meet again in the next Pinero :9:

Act 1 assembled; comes in at a huge hour and twenty-one minutes. I think this will groom down to fit as one file, but think I will try assembling the other acts first - then I can see if I will have 3 very long files, or maybe better as 6 shorter files. (I have a good break point at halfway through this act if I need to use it, and the multi-part intros/outros already recorded - thx.)

I don't listen too much when I assemble - listening and grooming is when I do that - but what I did hear sounded great from all of you!

Thanks, Todd

Okay, all assembled. Pinero is long-winded. Act 2 has to be cut into two files, might have to cut Act 1 as well.

Getting ready to go through a second time and do all the final edits (stacking parts, adjusting gaps and volumes, etc).

Thanks, Todd
