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!

Purpose

Posted on Updated on

Certainty known, I lost all else,
Everything lost, purpose I found,
Purpose now found, pursuit ensued,
Pursuing I found, though not what I sought ,
Purpose still seen, seeking grew hard,
Labour applied, though course was unsure,
Course misdirected, soon was corrected,
The correction now made, the Corrector is praised,
At least through it all,
Purpose is seen,
And the Guide He never,
Never is lost.
