Here is Josephine Templeton: https://librivox.org/uploads/toddhw/firstcomefirstserved_josephinetempleton_morton.mp3 (9:49)
Elsie,

Thank You.

Just one PL Note @ 9:20 you say "your fellow-conspirator," the script has "My fellow-conspirator,"

JOSEPHINE. Yes; this harmless conspiracy to make everybody happy! Julia dear, it was to test your love for me that I pretended to be so very anxious to get married, which I wasn’t the least little bit in the world (with a sly look at ROYSTON). I mean I wasn’t then! My fellow-conspirator, Mr. Barton, fearing that your rejection of him might proceed from a preference for another, joined in the plot, but very unwillingly, for it is you, Julia, you alone, that he has ever loved; you alone that he loves still!

Here is Julia.

6:23

I took the liberty of not pausing for a stage direction at one instance in the middle of my line, as I felt it would have greatly interrupted the flow of the drama, and I believe I captured the direction with my voice pretty well. I hope this is ok for you. Also, where it says (stamping her foot), I gave you a little stamping noise which you may use or cut, as you wish.

Devorah,

Thank You.

I have not listened this yet, but I am all in favor of readers laughing, crying, whispering, or otherwise vocalizing in their recording emotions and actions that are written in as a stage direction.

Devorah,

Julia is PL OK.

In this instance, stamping her foot, I decided on using the stage directions instead of the audio sound. It is hard to distinguish what a bang or bump is supposed to mean.

Thank you. I never imagined you'd use the stamp on its own. But I've known some editors use both the sound effect as well as the direction. Regardless, it is your decision. :)

Here are my remaining two roles:

https://librivox.org/uploads/toddhw/firstcome_basil_morton.mp3
https://librivox.org/uploads/toddhw/rosencrantzandguildenstern_guildenstern_gilbert.mp3

David, I want to apologize for the way my file for Basil sounds. :oops: I recorded it first and did not think to check the microphone setting, and when I finished and listened back I immediately realized Audacity had defaulted not to my Yeti but instead to my laptop mic. And I was so pleased with my performance, too. :( I decided to keep it as is because my lines are still legible, but if you don't think it's good enough I'd be happy to record it again. I don't know why Audacity didn't default to the Yeti, especially since I plugged in the Yeti before opening the program. Next time I will absolutely double-check to make sure it's on the right setting.

Um, the MW shows you had claimed Rosencrantz, not Guildenstern! I am checking with KIBBONAFIDE - who has not yet submitted Guildenstern - to see if Rosencrantz and Guildenstern can be swapped....

Thanks, Todd

This has not been my best day, has it? LOL. :lol: I can't believe I goofed like this. How did I not see that I was Rosencrantz? :?

Well, uh, this may not come to much in the end because Kibbonafide/Josh has been MIA for a while now and it's likely his role will have to be orphaned. So maybe someone will come along to record for Rosencrantz.

:lol: and as Rosencrantz you would even have a bigger role ;)

well, on a hunch that this can get taken, I already proofed it, and you sound perfectly nonchalant, jaded somehow. Probably a spoiled brat from university :lol: Excellently acted out.

only one part missing right at the end:

> at 1:14: (p. 357) missed line: “Don’t tell us – let us guess – the whips of time ?

thanks, Tomas !
