This? Is so cool.
Yes, I recognise that I did that annoying question mark in middle of sentence thing. But.

podslash -- a community for up/down loading audio versions of fanfic (leaning towards slash, obviously, but they'll accept het and gen as well). Empty as of yet in terms of actual stories, but it's just starting. Porn that you can take with you on your mp3 player. Dude.

In other news, I:

  • Saw Sky High. maeyan and I spent the entire movie looking at each other and mouthing sparkling bon mots like "Oh my god, he is so hot" re: Warren Peace, aka Steven Strait. (He finishes speaking. There is silence. Me: "And now I will brood and be sexy.") I believe there was a plot and some enjoyable comedy and some good acting, from the bits that I can remember of when Strait wasn't onscreen.

  • Bought HBP, finally, as well as American Gods and Holly Black's Tithe which I am halfway through and deeply enamoured of.

  • Bought season 1 of Six Feet Under, and season 2 of Dead Like Me and Tru Calling. I should have enough entertainment material to last me until at least tomorrow night, quoth maeyan.

  • Ate way too much midnight diner food, as I usually do on midnight diner nights. But it was goooooood.

"up/down loading audio versions of fanfic"

I was wondering if anyone had thought of this for, say, blind slashers...

Definitely not the first time I've come across the idea -- minitrog was trying to arrange some audioslash readings with some friends, a while ago, but I think that project may have been sidelined due to illness/the boyses in question having other things to do.

My daughter's been trying to get me to read Tithe for months now. I do have jury duty next week. Hmmmmm. . .

Tithe was quite good -- a neat twist on the Seelie/Unseelie stuff that was not, as I feared, a close variation on War for the Oaks.

I'm thinking about making some mp3s -- but my test runs were a) pretty scratchy in background noise, and b) very remindery that I have a lovely sinus issue that makes my voice sound especially nasal, on and off.

omg. American Gods. That's it. That's all I got.
Although, you reading fic would be mighty awesome. So, you know, consider this a friendly nudge. A vote of yay!

Haven't started American Gods yet, but it's probably the next up. Unless I fold and read Harry Potter first.

I would *love* to be able to hear you (MP) reading some of your work. That would the Ultimatest of Coolnessness!!1!

You could start with The Complete Domestic Piranhas in .mp3. That would be fine. Wouldn't it, everybody? :-)

Ahahahahahaha. You will of course provide me with liquid refreshment and slaveboys while I read about 300,000 words out loud? :-P


2005-08-09 02:42 am (UTC) (Link)

Well, liquid refreshment I could do. And I could let you borrow my slaveboy until your done.

Would that work?


2005-08-09 08:42 pm (UTC) (Link)

Will he read the porny bits?
