Now after exactly 4 months, the first volume of the World Story series is completed.
Thank you all for your wonderful enthusiasm and great readings.
This project had 140 sections
, which were read by no less that 27 LV volunteers
. Some of you recorded over 10 sections, some others less and a few only recorded one single one, but I'm grateful to each and every one of you, because every single section counts.
I couldn’t have done it without you.
Let me name you all in alphabetical order:
adonis / adr6090 / andreearux / Availle / BettyB / bluechien / brianna / catharmaiden / ColleenMC / emmacharliebrowning / engineerSTL / Kitty / Lmnei / mightyfelix / MonaJaheen / moniaqua / neecheelok70 / NemoR / Nicky504 / NinjaOfNix / Nuria / realisticspeakers / SaraHale / SonOfTheExiles / ToddHW / WiltedScribe / wubwave
I was delighted that 4 new readers
had chosen this particular project to try their hand at a very first recording.
Here's a warm welcome to: andreearux, MonaJaheen, NinjaOfNix and wubwave. I hope we’ll hear plenty more of you.
For those who like statistics, let me enumerate the three big milestones
that were reached in this project:
1) Tony (adonis) jumped right in with his enthusiasm and handed in the very first PL ok
section with The soul of the great bell.
2) Tomas (WiltedScribe) reached the 50% mark
with The King's Messenger.
3) Nicky (Nicky504) has the honour of the 100th PL ok section
with The great Buddha of Kamakura.
And now to finish my Oscar-speech, before I bore you death
Some special mentions:
> a big thanks to my fantastic friends from the drama group
, for giving life to the two short mini dramas: The sorrows of Han and Ribs and Skin: Eva, Nemo, Sarah, Todd, Tomas (and myself
> thank you Eva, for your wonderful musical idea
in The emperor and the musician. You made this section really special
> thank you Availle for your knowledge and unquenchable interest
in all things South-East Asian. You brought an Asiatic feel to your sections
> thank you Chris for lending your genuine Australian charm
to the 2 sections about the settlement and gold rush of Australia
> and a special thanks to Miguel (basquetteur) who is lending his artistic talents and ideas to developping a CD-cover concept
for the entire series. You will all see the outcome of our fruitful PM discussions later on when the project is uploaded.
> and last but not least: A big thank you to the ever present Jim (neecheelok70), who not only has recorded the most sections
for this project (29 in all), but also the longest section
running over 42 minutes, who was my Deputy PL
for checking all my own recorded sections and who basically offered to read each and every orphaned section
in the end to bring this project to a close. Thank you, Jim, I really appreciate.
I hope to see you all in the following parts of the series. (ok, I'm done now
