#8, Benjamin Button, is complete and ready for proofing! :)

Proofing now. And cast list fixed.

EDIT: PL OK! I like the story - I lived 10 years on Mt Vernon Place in Baltimore just like Benjamin says in the story (and as the Fitzgerald's did nearby for some time).

Thanks, Todd

Hey there, just an update, it took me longer than I would like to get my new little studio set up, but I should be good to go now! Planning to record for Dupin in The Purloined Letter and submit for PL by the end of the week.

Great. Do you have someone to PL it, or are you looking for someone here to do that?

Thanks, Todd

I don't have a PL lined up, but I could recruit one if need be.
There is still one short narrator line missing. It was a new reader who hasn't checked back in despite several PMs. It is not an essential line, and the casual listener wouldn't notice it, so I decided to submit the piece as it is.

Nice story, especially the twist in the ending. Just a few comments and only one action required:

At 12:24 you jump ahead two pages for 10 seconds (to "Lot of nickel plated shoe horns in there"). Then you jump back to where you belong. Need to delete that line here.

When you get to where "Lot of nickel plated shoe horns in there" appears in the script at 14:31, it is correctly repeated. So no action required there.

The missing narration line at 16:02 isn't critical, so I agree with leaving it out.

Thanks, Todd

Todd, I was wondering if you are planning on starting another DR Scene and Story Collection after this one. I see it's almost finished and I have been marking up another short story for a script...

Well, since you ask, I guess I'll have to do that. Soon.

Thanks, Todd

Thanks for taking the time to PL this for me!
O. Henry is known for his "twist" endings.

Clipped the odd piece out, so should be good to go:

Chuck,
I see your Narrator part for The Purloined Letter is still marked Ready for PL
So, I took the opportunity to listen and have just a few minor notes. Probably you can go with it "as is" since these are minor, but thought I'd mention them.

Let me know if you need help editing, and I'd be glad to lend a hand.

NARRATOR

Volume too low at only 84 dB, so this will need some adjustment in editing.

~ 4:33 Missed line, “replied the Prefect” (This can be grabbed from another line)
10:47 Text: “more entirely depressed in spirits than I had ever known the good gentleman before” Reading: omits the word good. Not critical, so your option.

12:04 Text: “I was astounded. I hear: “I was astonished” - minor, so your option again.

Completed this part, though I realize I'll have to add my name to it tonight. I hope I got formatting and volume all right, but I will be back later today to check on that stuff. Thanks for bearing with me as I complete this, has been a fun read!
