Hi there, would I be able to claim the part of Mr. Dupin in The Purloined Letter if that one is still orphaned? Thanks!

Here is another updated status report on this project.

DRs 1, 2, 5, 7, and 9 are complete. 50% completed. Hooray!

DR 3 (BC=ChuckW) has all parts claimed, awaiting submittal of Mr C Dupin.

DR 4 Kitty will be new BC since Lucas has not completed. She will read "another cabman" and also PL all the other parts - they have been languishing without PL since submittal: hopefully this late PL will not generate too many PL notes. I will edit when the parts are ready.

DR 6 (BC=RobMarland) awaits a fix on one part and it can then be assembled.

DR 8 (BC is now LCaulkins since Foon is not around). Submitted parts are all PL'd (thank you) and we're waiting on files for three roles so it can be assembled.

DR 10 (BC=silverquill) has all parts submitted, with two needing PL fixes before assembly.

The end is in sight.

Thanks, Todd

ok I have a go at PLing the parts for the stolen bacillus, as people have been waiting for a long time for their feedback already.

Starting with the narrator:

Here is the narration for "The Stolen Bacillus", at 14:06:

thank you, Availle, lovely narration. And the story was very interesting with a funny twist at the end :lol:

There is only one missed line, which was colour-coded wrongly, so you missed it:

> at about 4:30: please insert: "A disturbing thought struck him. He turned to the bench by the vapour-bath, and then very quickly to his writing-table. Then he felt hastily in his pockets, and then rushed to the door."

Thanks ! and on to the next.

Oh and I can do the Other Cabman too, so we can get this finished up soon 8-)

Any probs, you know where I am!
next up: Bacteriologist. No problems there, can be marked PL ok straight away. Great characterization, Andrew, you were playing him out quite composed, but a bit distracted, just the way he was portrayed in the story. :thumbs:

Thanks !

:lol: you sound like you swallowed the bacteria already in your voice credit :mrgreen: excellent job, Todd. I especially love it when you display the crazy mass-murderer attitude (ok, that sounds sick :roll: ) no but seriously, I can see the crazed-out gleam in your eye when you say "devastate a city. Wonderful" :shock: priceless !

There is only a bit missing, again due to colouring errors:

> at about 2:11: missed lines: “More,” he shouted, “if only we get away.

thanks

ah this cockney interpretation was a special treat, Rob. Gotta love Old Tootles :thumbs: Perfectly PL ok. I think this part of the story will be especially funny later on.

Thank you

Here's my Olster boy. Hopefully it works out ok. I've had a few issuer with the laptop :?
thank you for this part, Eitel. Textually it's all PL ok, and enthusiastic enough for this scene :lol: In fact, you brought in a bit too much enthusiasm, because your volume is exceeding the allowed maximum of 92 (in fact it's over 96 dB :shock: ). But there is no serious clipping, so it is not a problem. I'll make a note and Todd will adjust the volume in the editing phase. :) Just be careful with your next recordings ;)

The Stolen Bacillus, cabman:
https://librivox.org/uploads/toddhw/stolenbacillus_cabman_wells.mp3 (:13)
and last but not least, Scott, your cabman was also very accurately portrayed. Now hearing his efficiently calm voice, I cannot imagine him being friends with the three from the mayhem gang that I just heard before :lol: what a contrast. PL ok as well

Thank you

Todd: everything up-to-date for that story. (marathon PLing for about one hour :mrgreen: )
I'll PM Availle, in case she already signed off the thread. (happy that the PL notes are very contained)

And tonight I'll find some time to record my huge starring role as the other cabman :lol:

Hmm. My recording setup seems to have dramatically changed somehow. I can't get anywhere near an acceptable match on these new lines. I'll try again tomorrow.

ALSO - I CAN'T SEE ALL THE COLORS THAT THE SCRIPT IS MARKED WITH. (One of the reasons I do not do many DRs.) I MAY NOT BE ABLE TO DO THE EDITING. ANY OTHER VOLUNTEERS IN CASE I CAN'T DO IT???

Thanks, Todd
