Ah, yes. Apologies, I've been trying to nail down one of EoC's rants.
I think there's a flubbed line in the last paragraph of yours, "latest celebrity gossip." If you don't mind re-doing that, cool.
I'm not positive I mentioned it in my e-mail, but if I did a shitty job on the recording I won't take offense if you need another take or scrap it.
This is the first time I've recorded my own voice and listened to it. It seems a few people are recording theirs in pieces and then adding the best takes together to make the whole track? That's very smart. I didn't know you could do that, so I just re-recorded it. Over and over and over. The words lost all meaning after a while and I can't tell if the palpable loathing present is what I sound like on a regular basis or just a product of the resentment I had toward flubbing the last line of a six minute long reading.
The experience left me distinctly questioning why anyone would subject themselves to me speaking by choice. So really, thanks for helping me learn who my real friends are.
