Well, not quite. But I've been playing around with Audacity and god it's fun. I made this in, oh, ten minutes? To type up something, record it and play about. You can definitely tell it's my first attempt at this kind of thing (ohhh timing) but I wanted to see what you could do. Apparently, a lot! Internet I am delight! ....Of course then I spent an hour and a half trying to see if I could make me sound like a boy without going via the alien route and it ... well. I deleted those files. I might be able to get an approximation but. It's kind of exhausting. Also I don't actually understand sound so a lot of the sloppy fast learning has been of the 'if I shove this slider all the way up here what will that do??' without actually grasping the whys. .... I reject your frequencies and decibels and play about on my own! .... I might have to start wikiing next time I want to do this.

But yes. It's very very short and very very lulzy in quality and it's all me! Go ooooonnn. Have a listen. You know you want to.

Anyway, very good fun! Also eeeeee Six in Gallifrey! (although wtf seriously I .... I am delight but so fucking confused. How are they - ah well, is Six will be awesome.) And apparently Caroline Johns was Mrs Salvatori in Dust Breeding? Oh - oh Liz. Liz I am disappoint.

Also Day of the Triffids is on and .... I don't really know what's happening. But I love Eddie Izzard, so it's all good.

Still need to do con report. Am slowly uploading footage and photos. I will get there.

Ok, so, a long time ago [ profile] x_los was bugging me about Who-related lists and how I should have them, and more recently [ profile] tardiscrash posted a list on his fandom journal, and I was reminded how many moons ago I attempted to buck the trend by yes, making a list, but instead of Who eps focussing on BFAs. Except I stole that from [ profile] aralias.

Still, here is my bigass list of the first 40 BFAs and general (sometimes spoilery, to the extent of 'IT'S GOT DINOSAUR SKELETONS') descriptions/reactions of the sort that are useless to anyone who's listened to them already. It's weird now to look at what I thought then, because this was when I'd only first really started to discuss this aspect of fandom with other people and I wasn't really doing relistens. So I've got updated thoughts, for what they are, in bold, but even then they're less thoughts and more ... squee and snark. At some point I'll keep updating this list as I'm well past the episode 40 mark, but for now, here we go.

bold is for amazing
strikethrough for terrible
and italics is for completely forgettable

Bigass BFA List Wot I Have Listened To )

General conclusions? Six grew on me rapidly, Eight is swings and roundabouts, Seven gives me rose coloured glasses and BFA still don't really seem to know how to write for Five. There. I've just saved you ten minutes of your time.

Today I am dressed all up in grey, which is always strange to notice when you didn't plan it.

I finished up with Omega, which was, in a word, brilliant. Oh genuinely great Five audio, be still my heart. The ending was not as strong as I could have hoped, but still. It can be done!!

Davros is stunningly good as well, in the sense that I am enjoying it, which considering it's about Davros is .... mind-boggling.

Here, have some old Delgado!Master art. Well. I think from the look of it you can see it is actually D!M's slightly-older-and-much-better-looking brother, on whom Theta crushed for many years, but. This is why we keep practicing.
