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.

So apparently this is the hundredth entry I've ever made on this journal? Which is very exciting and all, I remember on dA I would have made a kiriban or something, idek. I had an evergrowing list of things I would have liked to have said - mainly just Things Wot Have Happened, but it was getting too long and I am lazy.

Spent most of today in pain but in delightfully good company, so it balanced out somewhat I feel. This evening I was bored and needed distracting so I finally fulfilled a threat I've been making for a while and recorded the first two chapters of Doctor Who and the Leisure Hive on my phone. It's interesting how different I sound on the computer vs the phone but both have pretty terrible sound. Every novelisation presents its own challenges. This one has French and Tom Baker's stupid face, but it was fun all the same. The Leisure Hive is one of my favourites, so we'll see.

Anyway, here are things.

Doctor Who and the Leisure Hive, Chapters One and Two.

Chapter One- On the plus and negative side, it does have me making a go at Romana, K9 and Four, which is teeth-grittingly bad but also therefore kinda hilarious. You can hear the point where I give up. This is also shorter, with actual Things Happening.

Chapter Two- Longer, like, ten minutes of reading time longer, and no Doctor, Romana, or anyone. Well. There's Herell. This is a lot of exposition and backstory, entertainingly written, I feel, and actually very much my cup of tea but if it's anyone else's I will be surprised. On the plus side, no heinous attempt at voices at all.
