“It was a dark and stormy night. No, that's not right; it was dry and sunny most of the way down which is always a plus. And uneventful. For the most part. Which is always a plus.
We were barreling down the road at about 75 mph without another car in sight and my wife says,
"Deer."

"Yes" I reply.

"Deer!" she says.

"Yes!" I reply.

"<b>Deer in the road!</b>" she screams and points out the windshield where four very large does were trying to cross the interstate. I applied the brakes in a firm, steady manner, steering straight down the center lines. One runs across, the other three decide to stay where they are. My eyes didn't leave the road the rest of the drive.

And thanks to Tony (<lj user="drax0r">) for setting up my voicepost while I was on the road. Beats the hell outa 24k where I'm going.

Tomorrow I'm meeting <lj user="danzigfried"> for lunch at Chipolte with the kids leaving the wife and her mother alone for the day.

Please visit his page as he's posted. The conversation went something like this:

"Dan, I'm heading to Wichita. Thought we might meet for lunch tomorrow."

"That sound fantASStic!" he replies.

I say, "But I don't feel comfortable meeting you until you make restoration. By posting, you disrespected me. We need to clear up this bad blood between us." I think I've been watching too many Sopranos.

He did. Now the slate is clean, and we'll dine together tomorrow. If you do comment on his post, please try to use the word "flaccid" somewhere within your text. It's his most favorite word.

Lastly, since Disney's gotten in trouble again and again because the word "sex" usually appears in swirls of dust or stars in their children's cartoons, Pixar in their newest movie have used computers to randomly generate these effects. Unfortunately on the first run of the new software the phrase <b><I>Eat my ass Disney!</I></b> was observed in a generated cloud. Back to the drawing board I suppose.”

Thank you! It wasn't as easy as writing, and there are pro's and con's. For example you cannot as easily highlight or italicize text to drive your point home or use ALL CAPS. But I suppose if your inflection and timbre are right, you wouldn't need to...

Your inflection and timbre were perfect.

great post. I might have to get you to do some voice-overs for me in a year or so...

further, you'll be happy to know that because I was not beating it to pR0N while listening to your post, the old boy was flaccid.

That's funny about Pixar. We should have more like them.

Thanks for that.

At no point did I ask or suggest that the word 'flaccid' be used in any of MY posts. Only danzigfried's journal.

Glad you liked the Pixar bit. Sounded funny at the time when I dreamed it up - but then I was suffering from exhaustion.

HA! We were just talking about this!

If you are referring to the voice overs, then no. This thread referred to other projects.

If you are referring to me whacking it to p0rN, we have NEVER had that discussion.

If you are referring to Pixar, you need to put the blunt down. We did not discuss that either.

Well...audio books anyway.

When did we ever discuss audio books?

Jesus H. Christ! Yesterday - we talked for an hour...on the phone? Alexander Graham Bell? He invented the telephone? Does, "ring, ring" ring any bells? You were telling me about a script - you spent two hours discussing it; the legalities of a podcast, but thought you'd spend all day - because you're one verbose motherfucker? I told you I'd like to be the reader? You thought that would be good casting? You had some ideas about which characters because you've read his short mystery? WTF were you smoking while we talked? Does any of this sound familiar?

The idea wasn't to make an audio book but rather mimic a radio broadcast; I don't consider the two the same for two reasons:

1. An audio book is just the narration.
2. The source material is being re-written and will only resemble the original novellas.

And to date you've done neither. Bravo.

It's a "work-in-progress".

"Life" is a work-in-progress. The sooner you realize this and start enjoying the here and now, your dreams will come to you.

I am enjoying the "here and now" and am working towards my dreams in my spare time. The trouble is, I don't have any spare time!

LJ, for all its technical advatages over Xanga sucks ass when it comes to using HTML during transcription.

Agreed. Valiant effort though!
