daeseage: (fuck!)

So over at [ profile] fillapod we're working on assembling a most righteous podfic of Broadcaste System and Quadrant Queries, full-cast style. In the interests of expediting the assembly process, I spent all morning recording the narration for the first couple chapters, then playing hooky from physics at Peet's working on editing in [ profile] themuffinator3's Dave and Tavros lines recorded last year. Only to realize, when nearly done with the chapter, that I'd forgotten a line. Grargh. I was guess I was laughing so hard at the line about the Low Rider cowbell intro (which took about 17 takes, I swear, because I could not manage it with a straight face/voice) that I accidentally deleted the line before it. Now I have to try to either match the missing line, or redo the whole chapter. Luckily it's less than 5 minutes of narration for the chapter, but it's an entire morning of editing, wasted, and I was planning to work on Unfolding (which I am reeeally behind on. I wanted all the reading done by now) and ThEy CaN FiX mE PrOpEr WiTh A bIt Of LuCk :o( (which I just got permision from [ profile] rainbowbarnacle to post!). =[

On the plus side, I did swing by Barnes and Noble on the way home and pick up a couple books. =D I read some of "The Garden Primer" by Barbara Damrosch last year when I was first planning out the garden, and I've wanted to read "Battle Royale" for ages, so I'm really excited!!

Bonus picture of Ranger being totally pathetic because I'm dicking around on the computer and not playing with him. =O )

I first recorded this back around New Year's, when I was sick as a dog with some foul kennel cough my sister brought back with her from basic training. I wanted podfic to keep me company so bad (and I'd been reading my favorite sickfics on repeat), I sat down and read through the whole thing using just the built-in speaker on my laptop in the middle of the night. I'm pretty sure I was feverish, and ought to have been in bed, asleep. This copy, riddled with coughs and nigh unintelligible from feedback and a poorly placed, overworked fan noise, is no longer among the living. Sometime later in January I re-read the whole thing, this time after unearthing an actual microphone and with fewer coughs, although I guess it was when my ears were still wonky because the pacing is totally overcompensating for the fact that I had to concentrate waaaaaay too hard on the enunciation. I still think that it's a bit too slow (and I just realized that I can hear the clock ticking in the background at the beginning. *headdesk*), but hopefully that's alright. =]

I have a bunch of favorite parts in this fic (*cough*thewholedamnthing*cough*), but I had to keep re-doing Gamzee's lines because every time I tried them, I'd bust out laughing. I mean really. Motherfucking Prego.

I would also like to recommend that you don't do the bulk of your editing while sitting in a crowded Starbucks with peppy jazz playing in the house speakers. It's distracting, to say the least. =T

As usual, please leave any feedback you have in the comments! I would really love to hear your opinion of the recording, especially areas for improvement!
