The Pit and the Pendulum (Audiobook)

Posted on Updated on

I did a recording of Jonathan Swift’s A Modest Proposal quite a while back. That turned out fairly well, but I wasn’t completely pleased with the voice or recording quality. I’ve since gotten a better microphone, and I worked on the voicing a bit more with this one and went for a more active voice.

Edgar Allan Poe’s The Pit and the Pendulum

Feedback? Suggestions? Comments? Insults?

I still haven’t got the voice or recording exactly where I want it. This microphone does a better job of reproducing bass, so my voice isn’t entirely tinny here. I don’t have a soundproof room in which to record, either, so every now and then an ambient sound will work it’s way into the background. I’ll keep working at it though. Taking suggestions for another recording!

My Blog Has Holes in It (How else do I explain all these drafts)

Posted on

I’m hoping WordPress will address this issue soon. My blog has some gigantic holes in it. I logged in today to find drafts everywhere. No sooner than I had finished filling in my password, did I feel a stiff breeze coming out of my computer screen. It knocked over several of the items on my desk, and I’ve lost a bunch of papers that simply flew away. This is unacceptable.

I just can’t explain the origin of all these drafts. Every time I start to write another post, another draft pops up, and I can’t seem to get anything published. Quite ridiculous, really.

Just the other day I started to write what I knew would be an absolutely superb piece on the moral dilemma that faces us when we are forced to make hard decisions. I got distracted by something in the other room, and I had to walk away from my blog. Somebody must have poked a hole in my site while I was away because there it was: another draft. Such Drafts

I think this all started way back when I tried to write a post about a rubber ducky. I smelled some pop tarts cooking in the other room, and I simply had to go find the source. My blog just hasn’t been the same since.

Fairie Tales, (trying to be) funny stories, inane antics, and completely ridiculous anecdotes, nothing seems to be able to get to that revered published state… I’ve combed through them all, looking for a way to maybe plug the hole and kill the draft, but nothing seems to work. I’ve tried rubber bands, chewing gum, duct tape, and even a few pots of coffee, but none of them solved my issue. I’m hoping that I can get this resolved soon.

I’m starting to think that this might be a problem with the whole blogging world. I’m certain that it’s not a problem with me. I’ll deny to the bitter end. I mean, I’ve been accused of procrastination before, but this is a structural problem, I’m almost certain of it. Brrr… It’s starting to get kinda cold in here. 

In the mean time, I think I’m going to… wait, someone’s at the door. I’ll finish this later.
