Re: group [ENGLISH] After Long Silence by William Butler Yeats - jn

Don't assume it's you. Just because the kit works 98% of the time doesn't mean it doesn't have funny fits every now and then! I'm not certain what the uploader is up to. It sounds as if it's doing most of what it ought to do, but I'm not certain why it isn't showing you the link beyond just being pi...

Re: solo [ENGLISH] The Guermantes Way by Marcel Proust - vik

There's one PL note for section 02: please make sure you have at least half a second at the beginning of the recording to avoid it being cut off by some tricksy players.

I really don't know Proust terribly well, but I'm enjoying the chance to listen to his rhythms.

Re: solo [ENGLISH] The Guermantes Way by Marcel Proust - vik

I have one PL note each for sections 00 and 01, and it's the same for both sections. It's that the opening silence is quite short. Could you please extend it to half a second or a full second? I believe that that was instituted at Librivox because some players clip the very beginning or end of track...

Re: group [ENGLISH] After Long Silence by William Butler Yeats - jn

Hi Ian, First out of the gate! Thank you very much for your version. I like it (and it's PL OK!). I also just saw that you've been here for a year now. I can't believe the last Yeats project has already been a year... Thank you for asking about the tags. You're absolutely right, that was my mistake ...

No problem at all. I've downloaded section 14, but I just wanted to check in and let you know I probably won't get going until the weekend.

Re: group [ENGLISH] After Long Silence by William Butler Yeats

Hi! First person to reply, so that's a start! You're right, it is pretty quiet round here. However, there are some Yeats enthusiasts out there, and I'm hoping a one-off late-career poem will prove tempting. I could be wrong of course, but it might also be the case that some members simply don't stop...

Re: solo [ENGLISH] The Guermantes Way by Marcel Proust - vik

I'm posting to say that I'm willing to be DPL. I'm leaving later in the week on trip for work, but I should start properly PLing once I've returned.

Re: group [ENGLISH] After Long Silence by William Butler Yeats

A note for the MC: this is an experiment in much the same vein as the weekly and fortnightly poetry projects on LV. I don't know how many readers will fancy recording a version of the poem, but it's worth trying! I've slightly tweaked the info on the tags and intro/outro - please let me know if I ne...

Hi Viktor,

I like it! When I saw your message I wasn't sure what to expect, but I think you're being hard on yourself. It looks really good - thank you very much for creating it!

Re: PD in 2019

I would like to point out that The Great Gatsby is PD in Europe or countries with life + 70, while it is not in the US. Therefore librivox won't do it, but you can :) Hello Michaelwy, There's some good news! Martin Reyto has already recorded The Great Gatsby, so you can start listening this weekend...

No rush! I appreciate your efforts, because we'd be here all year if it were down to me to come up with a cover.

Re: solo [ENGLISH] Green Grey Homestead by Steele Rudd - hok

Hi Anna, I didn't make a note of the pronunciations - I don't think they're really a big deal, but I hope it helps for future things! Chapters 19 and 20 are PL OK, so the book is finished - well done! I'm going to be really annoying and mention a typo in the new summary in your post - in the first l...

Re: solo [ENGLISH] Green Grey Homestead by Steele Rudd - hok

Chapter 17 is PL OK! I have one small note on pronunciation. This is a classic example of a homograph - 'bow' is spelled identically but the pronunciation varies depending on the meaning. If you take a deep bow, it rhymes with wow. It's definition 2 here: https://en.oxforddictionaries.com/definition...

Re: solo [ENGLISH] Green Grey Homestead by Steele Rudd - hok

Chapter 16 is PL OK. A couple of pronunciation notes just because it's so much fun... 'Tear' has two different pronunciations, just to be confusing. In the first definition, if you look at the listings under the subheading 'verb', number 2 has the definition and example sentences, and that definitio...
