My mp3 always records in 32,000hz, so I usually make sure to change that first. I also haven't been sleeping well the last couple nights, so who knows what I was thinking. I'll upload one at a time, and just try to make the next ones right. Still though, there were so many tongue twisters that I thought I got right, probably read things wrong, and also said them wrong.

Have a nice day! and thanks for your wonderful PLing. :D <smile>

One conniving Cupid, for PL:
oh yes indeed :shock: a far-cry from the little fat baby he is often portrayed as. You did an excellent job here, conniving your way through the play, Eva. I also loved the pouting and outrage in the end when he realizes his arrows have no power at the fountain :lol:

I can mark Acts 2, 4 and 5 already PL ok.

For Act 1 I have a small deviation from the text:

> at 2:18: "in speaking to your nimble deity" – you say “of” which is a change of meaning

Thanks, Eva !!!

Note to Todd: I found another line assigned to Cupid here, but this is actually Echo replying to Mercury. I checked in an archive scan and there it's indeed assigned to Echo. I think I didn't include this line in my file, so will do so as soon as possible. I'll mark Echo back as PL notes, so I won't forget. The line in question is this: "I will, kind Mercury, be brief as time. Vouchsafe me, I may do him these last rites, But kiss his flower, and sing some mourning strain Over his wat'ry hearse."

Thanks, Todd

here is the line at 2:42-2:57. Hopefully my voice is not too dissimilar from last time.

"self-loove" made me laugh out loud :lol: I think it's brilliant that you made it rhyme like that, it's a totally comic effect there. :thumbs: (and it is even correct for Middle English !) An excellent ending to this play. Well done, Alan, thank you so much. Nothing to change, both are PL ok now.

I thought that making it sound ridiculous was a way to make it more interesting. Thanks Sonia.

What better reason could there be for picking a role?

Thanks, Todd

I just noticed this play was being read. Serves me right for not looking in for a while.

Looks like Asotus is available. I'll take that, if it's okay, please.
