"Yeah, and remember anybody can do it!
This X-mas Always version was recorded only unsing standard PC components that are likely to find at a cyber - and free-of-charge software and sounds.
So you don't need to be rich, you don't need to…"
your reply on the song means a lot to me. Been after it for 3 weeks now - by sad coincidence I had to speed up finishing - but I hope it reached quality level of my other contributions.
And - after all - of course I am happy that I had opportunity to help a little bit in real life with that song.
Andreas has made some suggestions for improvement of the song, so I might try to integrate his advice; and I might be trying to apply a cool female voice instead of mine. If she likes the idea, we'll proceed.
You'll hear her voice soon, when next evolution of Gillian's moon will be launched (just some retrofits to do, and it will be ready).
Stay tuned, yet I have some other strange music to follow :-)
everything ok in Japan? I hope you have a great time.
Unfortunally, I'll have to inform you that my "No-Cost"-Project is shelved - so probability for your song to evolve further as an example are narrowed a bit. Thus the song will remain "as is" - hope that is ok for you.
The reason is that new circumstances suggest me to shift activity here into some other direction. At times we must concentrate on certain issues.
Just tell me what is happening on the other side of Earth?
at first, i had a problem uploading my poems, but now its going smooth.
the idea of enhancing a poem with a podcast sound great. but the question is: how many can access such opportunities to record? i guess very few.
i agree, it will be a participation barrier for many, especially here in africa.
however, this idea should be explored for the winning poms or say top 10 poems; they can be recorded for posterity.
thanks once more for your kind words.
I must admid one or two things here to remain at least a little bit credentable:
1. I'm occasionally doing some volunteering tests of the Poems Factory if all works well (since only very few members tend to report on errors). In this case 'twas on the issue about an error of uploading a poem been solved for different browsers (You may find some of those issues at "StarBug's Café").
2. So "The Poor and the Prim" is mainly there for testing. And has found another issue. But who says that an étude has to be without any art or content?
3. It is correct that I tried to imitate the style of "The Other Pre-requisite" to some extend, but tried to give it an other direction and an even more bitter surprize in the end.
4. You'd be right if you said that by doing so I only introduced some common clichées rather than to bulld up plausible characters like you did, since you did it very well.
But another thing: I attended an internal project team call (1st time for me) about the evolution of this site.
There we discussed e.g. if there should be a possibility to enhance a poem with a "podcast", i.e. an mp3 file where someone reads the poem - so they might be more easy to "receive". There we were wondering if people like you or your friends would have easy access to record your voice to a PC, or if it might build up a kind of "participation barrier" for some. What do you think?
Yes, your poems are something special, they make me think.
If you don't like that I comment on some poems in a kind of verses, please tell me and I will remove them, I get simply encouraged by a good poem, sometimes.
