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!

daeseage: (fuck!)

So over at [livejournal.com 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 [livejournal.com 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 [tumblr.com 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 )

daeseage: (bunp)

This has been one of the most interesting weekends I've had in a while: my parents and sisters were out of town for a soccer tournament in Las Vegas so I had the whole place to myself for the long weekend. Well, myself and three dogs and a cat. All of whom are very needy individuals. =]

Let's take a look at the poor choices I made, shall we? )

I would like to return from several weeks of silence to bring you this important PSA, courtesy of everyone's favorite [tumblr.com profile] vastderp/Luka on behalf of the awesometastic [tumblr.com profile] rainbowbarnacle. It's important, yo, but I'm going to guess that most of you have already seen the backstory floating around tumblr, so you can skip on past Luka's orginal post if you want. Feel free to catch up if you need to!

RainbowBarnacle has written some of my very favorite works in the Homestuck fandom, and her work on [tumblr.com profile] brainbent has been nothing short of awesome. (Oh the love I have for her Gamzee!!). She's going through some crazy stuff right now, and I want to help out as much as possible with PROJECT LESBISNATCH, and there's only so much I can afford to send (sometime in the near future, when funds clear. =/ ). SO, here's what I'm going to do:

You send funds (whatever you can spare!) via PayPal, to the appropriate party at tattooedbum@gmail.com, and let me know in the comments/via e-mail/telepathy that this has happened. And then I will read you thing(s) of your choice!! Podfic is love, right? You pick your fandom and pick your story, and I'll try my damnedest to take care of things like Characterization and Author Permissions. Please keep in mind, though, that things on the shorter side (if you feel like counting, <1500 words is ideal -- the longer your pick, the longer it will take to get to you!!) and not too graphic (busy house & little sister) will be easiest for me, but you're the boss, and I can't think of anything that's really too squicky when it's for a good cause! =D

Hell, I'll read you the entire restaurants listings in my local phone book or the PROJECT LESBISNATCH: LET’S STEAL THE DYKLERATION OF INDEPENDENCE as quoted above if that's what you really want. And you'll get your very own shiny "Read For: GENEROUS YOU" tag in the intro to the reading. (If you want. That shit's tooooooootally optional.)

"But daeseage!", you ask, "you can barely keep up with all the grand plans you already have! How're you gonna swing this??"

The answer, lovely, generous reader, is that where doing it man

where making this hapen

That's what.

Summary: Adventure Log, Day 13: today they swam in a lake.

This is my very first podfic, and I could really use whatever sort of feedback you can give me!! There's a serious dearth of Homestuck podfic, and I hope that other folks decide to get into this. =]

I'm also crossposting to [community profile] amplificathon and [livejournal.com profile] amplificathon.
