Sec.7 and 11 are both PL OK :thumbs:
Excellent performances both (11 is hilarious to boot!)
Thank you, Landis and Todd!

Chapter 5 is finished. It's my first attempt. Let me know if it is acceptable. I took out the 128kb from the file name because the "checker" gave it a warning.
Thanks,
St. John

11 is hilarious? I don't think he intended to be funny. You ought to see the whole ~500 page book on the subject that he references.

Hello Louise,
I was able to do the PL for your section 19. It is PL Okay and can be marked in the MW by admin. Your recording was a pleasure to listen to.

Thank you,
Lora
O!
Somehow I missed this post until just this minute.
(Silly stuff has distracted me for a few weeks...)
Thanks very much!

I was talking about your performance, Todd. Contrasted with the high-brow humorless Mr. Hunneker's style, it made me laugh. :D

Seeing the existence of 500 pages on this topic makes me laugh too. And glad I offered a short essay on it rather than the book!

Glad you enjoyed it.

Thanks, Todd

thanks. How about you close the gap and read 23?
Will do. Sign me up for Section 23 /George Moore

(A question, though -- and additional responses welcomed: is it preferable for listeners to hear different sections in different voices? Just wondering about opinions/thoughts on this.)

Also, re: Huneker as a stick-in-the-mud, this from the Wikipedia bio:
"Part of Huneker's notoriety in his day was connected to the flamboyant persona he established. He was known as a tirelessly social man with an enormous capacity for liquor and stimulating conversation, which (given his extensive erotic experiences) could be quite ribald. His friend H. L. Mencken described his dinner table conversation as "a really amazing compound of scandalous anecdotes, shrewd judgments, and devastating witticisms." Numerous memoirs from the period recall him as an unforgettable personality."

Wow that's nice to know. I will sign you up for 23. As a blind listener, I prefer having the same reader read as many sections as possible. It makes me feel more stable somehow, as if I can "feel" the book through the reader's eyes.

Is this project still looking for a DPL?

Thanks!
Hi. Is there more to this recording? It ends rather suddenly and without the required close.

What's here is a nice recording.

While you are re-listening, please correct the opening silence. It should be between one-half and one second of silence.

Hi. Thanks for recording here!

Would you mind having a listen again to your Chapter 30? There is a bit of editing that still remains to be done. In general, one might suggest that some of your pauses are a bit long, but that's not my place to say really. But there are some things that need attention such as, for instance, a noise at 4:32, and other irregularities at 7:08, 11:20, and 12:29.5.

Looking forward to hearing from you again!

Stav, I think it better if someone else serves as DPL. I think my suggestions are a good starting point but I do not wish to disagree with you.
