To my (admittedly untrained) ear, not all the sound quality was bad just some of it. Do we all need better equipment?

Avatar of Eric Parker

To be honest with the few exceptions of echoing and obvious air-handling noise, I thought it sounded pretty good. The problems are probably nothing a common microphone set up and a quiet room wouldn’t cure. I honestly was amazed at the level of voice acting talent. I think I was nervous or something cause I sound like a twitchy highschool freshman next to you lot.

    And I think we need to see if there’s interest in a redux. See if the voice talent (used very loosely in my case) is interested in picking up a common mic and giving this a second go. Shadygirl and I are certainly up for it (and she can record in my cave to eliminate the echo in her first recording). What do the rest of you say???

    have to try it to make sure. And yes its replayed a lot but there are at least 2 and I think more like 3 episodes that have shown it. They updated it and made multiple models of it now including a lighter smaller female version for “couples”, because only “couples” would buy a female doll! As if his female doll isn’t his best and only seller, as I can’t figure many women are buying life sized vibes!

    The move actually went pretty quickly once our friends started helping on Saturday. I’d say we’re about 98% unpacked with most of the boxes already out of the apartment. We’re now in this comfortable place where the things which are still packed we can do without. All in all pretty happy. We even got more back in security then we were expecting from the old place which was nice.

    Or do you still have lots of unpacking? Did everything go smoothly getting into the new place?

    Sadock,

    I’m gonna get on this Like white on rice but I need to complete my move first. This probably means the earliest I can make recordings is probably Monday. Humblest apologies to the Producer of DØØM and everyone else but I think you know from my previous posts how much hassle this has been. I promise Monday evening you will have your paragraph.

    also if it makes you feel any better I can say I have a standard laptop rig So I doubt I’ll be one of the ones you need to worry about sounding appropriately sucky. Thanks all for the understanding!

    Avatar of Kate Cheevers

    A lot of fan/traffic noise in the background on my computer. Much better sounding when I record to my iPod!

    is going to operate with something as awful as Jake Bible uses for his podcast (Dead Mech)–a powerful fun listen, by the way. And his audio isn’t all that bad considering… Hopefully most everyone either has a built in mic or can get their mitts on an appropriately low-end USB plug in. Or they can just ask their kids, or the neighbor’s kids, to borrow a mic. (ha!)

    I’m in for reading my little part. Aaaand here’s an idea… for next year, what if all of us who are in the story write essentially the same story from our own character’s point of view. It may be more of an exercise in revealing backstory around the same events. Might be a riot! What does everyone think? This could be like one big “Run Lola Run” kind of thing, or “Go”… I think it was “Go” that told the same story from a bunch of participants’ perspectives.

    When I had to stand and watch the boy play in full 8 round football (soccer) tournaments. I don’t envy you that . Mine was made more frustrating by the fact that my lad used to play in goal and his team were the best in the area so the ball never came down our end. Hard to maintain enthusiasm and motivation for a 7 o’clock start to watch your child stand around praying for a penalty shoot out or for his team to fail.

    Thankfully now we have cricket in the summer to look forward to so I can take drink and sit in the sun listening to podiobooks Innocent

    incidentally normally we don’t just have rain … we also have sleet snow drizzle fog hail mist and a general feeling of overcast skies… it’s not just the rain that’s shit

    Phantom used her phone to record a story and it sounded quite similar to a computer mic. If the file types are compatible (and it works for you), that will probably be the way to go. There’s no sense in purchasing equipment we don’t need.

    But the situation is not good on the Mic front! It turns out that my craptop is one of the very few that does not have a built in microphone!!

    And before people jump on that you can see for yourself or correct me with a site telling me how to activate it then.

    I have a Toshiba Satelite L505D, it does have the software to record but after popping a blood vessel screaming at my craptop I get a lot of nothing.

    I have checked the Toshiba site and they list my computer with a few others (L500 series, and the L505D-ES5025) and some of them have the mic and even show the location of said mic but not mine!!

    Any suggestion what to do then since we are trying to maintain the balance?

    All right, here’s what we need to do. Everyone who would seriously like to commit their time and energy to producing something needs to let me know. This will be the first step. Once we know who is interested, we can go from there with putting something together to see how everything sounds. It doesn’t matter if not everyone has an actual interest in doing this, we just need to know how many do.

    I know the idea was about having fun and I know we all get very busy. If this is something we seriously want to do however, then we are at the point where we have to treat it seriously. I don’t have a lot of spare time but this is something I would happily commit my time to! Who’s with me?

    Assuming Kali can work something out on her end? I did a little editing this weekend, but not a lot. Your favorite scene lost two full pages! Laughing

    On the direction front I’m thinking of seeing how the test goes (again, assuming we have one) and then I’ll go from there. I want to edit this and clean it up regardless of whether we do anything with it, but how much time I spend on editing balanced between two jobs, my daughter’s regular school stuff and her new soccer schedule and moving will depend on if this is going to happen or not. I’m happy and excited to get the editing done and see something happen here! Any excuse to avoid work…. Tongue out

    and it sounds fairly decent. Again, I’m no audiophile, but I’ve gotten incredible feedback from people I call on my cell phone with it. It does a great job of noise cancellation.

    At any rate, I won’t be using that for this project. I’ll be using the MacBook Pro’s built-in, which to my untrained ears, also sounds fairly good.

    Plus I’m jazzed that I can use a bluetooth headset with my new laptop. Skype, here I come!

    I checked, and sure enough, a built-in mic is available as an input selection. I could find no physical trace of it, so googled its location. Turns out it’s under the speaker grille at the bottom of the case. There’s nothing to actually see, and there is criticism that it’s too close to the fan and picks up a lot of fan noise.

    At any rate, I wonder if I knew that and forgot it cuz I never used it, or if I never knew it was there. I usually play around with voice commands on my new toys, but who knows? That was a long time ago.

    I probably figured it went hand-in-hand with the iSight camera, which they started including with my style iMac about 3 months after I bought mine (natch).

    That’s a risk you always run when you make a podiodrama. Every voice actor uses different equipment, has a different level of experience, and records in a different location. As a result, not only is the primary recording quality variable as all hell, the noise floor fluctuates too.

    We are trying to minimize it, but there’s only so much you can do. That’s a large part of the reason we wanted to do a test run. If there’s too much variance, it’s really not worth doing. At least that’s my opinion. Then again, I am an audio snob. I’m well aware of it.

    • In general, my friends mock everything about me as well. And I do the same to them. The biggest difference here is none of us have met IRL. We are confounded by the whole text from tone nemesis thing. The easiest way to overcome this is to cease and desist when someone asks you to stop, what you mean, are you serious, etc. I’ve done this repeatedly.
    • I’d disagree with you about introducing new terminology. How do words begin? By people using them. Where do we reside? In the social media space. It would be easy for any number of words to begin here. Do I think any of the words John & company created will take off? No.
    • You are also correct about your last point. That’s why I decided I wouldn’t play. I’d simply pack up my toys and go home if they chose not to respect my wishes on the matter. Seemed a logical enough solution to me. I’m the one who has a problem so I’d absent myself from the project. Problem solved.

    Plus, as big john said, the issue is still continuing because it gets stuck in your craw and as you should know more than anyone else around here, if you show weakenss, it will be jumped on and fun shall be poked unmercifully; at the end of the day, though, when it’s actually time to work and not play, I’m sure the level of professionalism will rise.

    Are you absolutely positive it didn’t? (Remember your Fern Gully when you answer)

    It’s not like they’re obvious or anything. You usually can’t even tell they’re there. I didn’t know my Dell (or iMac) had one until I opened up the application to use it.

    I’m still having difficulty accepting that it doesn’t have a built in mic.

    The problem with you buying a mic is that it will improve your sound quality. *If* we wind up doing this, we want everyone to sound equally bad. We don’t want Paul & I using our setups, you and John using your mics, and then everyone else using the built in mics on their computer. We need to go with the lowerst common denominator.

    We’d assumed that would be the built in mic on people’s pukers. Any machine post 2000 *should* have one. Is your computer from the last millenium?

    In theory, I agree with you.

    In practice, imagine whatever your profession is referring to critical elements of it by incorrect terminology. No, it’s not the same as a doctor in an operating room asking a nurse to hand him the shnazelpuff. But it is similar to a teacher in a school asking the A/V department to set up a jickenstein for him. So you’re the A/V director. What does that teacher need for his presentation to his kids? Any idea?

    It all has to do with agreeing on common terminology. That’s the basis for language. Yes, John is correct that made up words are how the language evolves. I make up words all the time. But they need to make sense rather than being arbitrary. Otherwise you wind up with devolution and entropy. That’s why I asked him to define his term way back in the very beginning. He refused. I was ecstatic to adopt podiodrama. It was an improvement over audiodrama. All the other terms have been blatant silliness and taunting, even after I asked people to stop.

    I think the factor all of you are missing is that this is my profession. I take it seriously. It matters to me. I’m passionate about it. Wouldn’t it bother you if your friends mocked and made light of what you do for a living?

    Now, I set out to write this simply to win Script Frenzy. Posting it here and all the involvement and suggestions and encouragements created for me a month I will remember for the rest of my life as one of the best months I’ve ever had! I had way more fun than I could have ever imagined. Along the way this also somehow went way farther and got far bigger than I could have imagined (like scary, terrifying, what are they thinking farther). But now y’all have got me totally excited about trying this thing!

    So as fun as 3 am tweeting may be (I feel like I do after I’ve gotten drunk, only this time I understand what people are talking about in regards to the hangover feeling in the morning!) and as much as my stomach still hurts from laughing so damn hard, I would actually like to not antagonize Sadock about this.

    Simple stuff like that would annoy me (assuming that is the sole purpose of their call). You should have already Googled and Wiki’d something before you ask me about it.

    Man, I’ve a couple of moments like that. And there are a few that just make you want to slap your forehead because you were asked to explain a word that you figured EVERYBODY knew. Like this one time I was the phone with a friend;

    I don’t remember the what the entire conversation was about, just remembered this bit.

    Me: I’m irritated

    Friend: Irritated? What does that mean?

    Me: Uh, it means I’m verry annoyed *said in a tone that it should be obvious what it means*

    Friend: Well, I don’t know! You use all these big words!

    Yeah, ‘irritated’ is a big word apparently. Not my fault I practically devour books and actually learn something from them.

I may even start recording my lines this weekend if I have time!!

    About that, Sadock. How do you want the files? Do you want one continous file with all the lines or do you want each line of dialog as an individual file? I have no idea how you do what you do so I want to know what you’d prefer.

    Phantom, fantasic work! Really!!! Thanks for doing this and making us all a part of it! Laughing

    Avatar of Arioch Morningstar

    I love making up words as much as the next bloke if it facilitates BETTER communication. Podioshow does the opposite. It makes communication more confusing. That’s why having common terminology & tools in technical fields is so important. Otherwise you can wind up with disaster. Just ask Oakland and San Francisco. Being on a common standard would have saved them untold property damage when they went to help one another in firefighting.

    I would make one request — if there are going to be any corrections, when sadock and I are mentioned together it should always be ‘Gmork and Sadock’…never ‘Sadock and Gmork’….never. lol…just kidding

It’s hard to find something to connect with in a virtual environment and your effort, whether its A, B, D, or Z, has been a crucial part of making this place feel comfortable and fun.

    I know, scary thought! So, granted I’ve been pretty up front about this being very tongue in cheek and just fun. In many places I went for the cheezy, overdone, B-movie factor on purpose! This is written about Junkies, for Junkies, by a Junkie (so will probably only make sense to us!). The characterizations are loosely based on our online personas. As many scenes as I could fill with as many forum quotes – I did. And the ending should definitely win some sort of cheeze-ball award! Or maybe that’s just me. Seriously though, maybe I’m on the self-conscious side, but you do know it could be so godawful no one will want to do this, right???

    Anyway, PM me, IM me, tweet me, email me, whatever and I’ll send you a copy. This way everyone gets to read it, knows what happens. If you know of anyone else I threw under the bus…er…into the script, who may want to read, let them know to contact me. I did read this, record it, and listen to it for editing purposes. There will almost certainly still be typos, silly mistakes and plot holes though. I think I got most of them. I’m totally not offended or bothered if you find something – please point it out! Oh yeah, and Enjoy!

    Avatar of Eric Parker

    But despite this I think he has a valid proceedure for going forward. Let’s test out say a sample chapter and see what comes of it! But before this can even begin there is a lot of work to happen before hand not the least of which is selecting a cast for the promo piece. Probably sticking to basic computer setups is best as it will keep uniformity. It also probably would be best to go with a section with a limited cast requirement to simify the process ( say no more than 4). I’m sure there also will need to be rewrites to set the script up for an audiodrama versus a stage production too. But if we can actually stick with it this sounds like it would be a lot of fun. Cheers to the Sigler players and may this turn into a successful venture!

    I’ve tested my computer mic as well, and the sound quality isn’t horrible. I would love to record my parts. Sure, I’ll have a bit of trouble findng a quiet place to record (5 people, plus one dog in a small house equals a lot of loud noise), but I’m sure I’ll find a place quiet enough to record.

    And I agree that we should approach this as a fun project for the Junkies. I do realize that it will take a lot of work, and there will most likely be a few set backs, but if we have fun doing it and the end result turns out to be really good, I say it would be well worth it!

    That’s why I bring up these points now. I don’t want people recording with just their computer mic and expecting me to make it sound like I do with what Scott or I use. That’s not going to happen.

    I only expect ~1/4 of the Junkies will have “professional” rigs set up. I’m pondering having *everyone* use the mic on their computer so we all sound equally bad. That might actually make the overall piece sound worlds better.

    He is much more concerned about logistical aspects that would affect production.My suggestion is that we try and do a few pages and see how it comes out. If it works, great. If not, we scrap the project.

    My suspicion is that many of you have no idea how much work this is going to be. And, like it or not, life happens. There’s a very good reason that audiodramas are produced so slowly. The larger the cast, the slower the show is produced. And I’ve gotten the impression that this script has a VERY large cast.

    I don’t think it makes a difference whether you parse out the script or send it out in its entirety unless you plan to do re-writes. I’d suggest sending out small chunks of entire script (eg pgs 1-5) the first go around. If we can make that work, we can send out larger chunks or possibly the whole script. Or you can send out the whole script to begin with and then send out correction sheets. Whatever’s easiest for you.

    Thanks for the time estimate. I want to try and do about ten minutes for our trial run. Or wherever the natural break closest to that is.

    Questions we need to answer:

    • Do we care how this sounds?
      • If so, it’s going to make casting much more difficult and the amount of work greater.
      • It won’t make my job that much harder. If something sounds like crap, I’ll send it back and tell you to do it again.
      • It may make the project impossible if people have substandard equipment, which is likely the case.
      • If not, butchering the French & Spanish is irrelevant
      • If we go into this knowing it’s going to sound like crap on the back end, it makes a *huge* difference to the amount of time I’m going to spend on it.
    • How are we going to cast this monster?
      • It sounds like we’ve got more roles than people to play them.
      • Can anyone do more than one voice and make it believable?
      • If not, how do we acquire other folks to fill those roles?
    • What’s our motivation?
      • Are we making a quality product or simply goofing off and having fun?
      • This will affect every aspect of how we approach the project.

    But I think that would be a lot of work for sadock. If he’s up to it, I will buy him a beer! If we each buy him a beer, we’ll have him sufficiently loaded in no time. :D

    Oh, and I kinda like the idea of only sending out the parts that are relevant to the role; but again, i think that would be even MORE work for sadock!

    _____________________________________________

    For my part, in no particular order – here are some things we may want to consider, assuming this is something we can/will do (Sadock, please correct me if I’m wrong on any of these):

    There are more junkies than have participated in this thread in the script. Do we want (and/or could we get) every junkie in the script to participate in order to go through with this (I can think of a few that I don’t see participating, though I could be wrong)? If not, would we assign parts for anyone who doesn’t want to?

    Action blocks are written for the director, producer, actors etc to have a feeling what is going on, who is involved and to relay other important scene information (and occasional camera directions). It would require some re-writing to work as a narration part.

    Several characters will need to learn a bit of French (and teensy bit of Spanish) to successfully negotiate some of their lines – including me! I think I butchered more words in this read through…

    Also, assuming we go ahead with the plan, do I parse out the script by role or send it out in its entirety?

    Sadock – Though I wasn’t careful about modulating my speed, my read-through ran at 2 hours. I don’t think even slowing down the parts I rushed a little would make it that much longer. (Man was my mouth dry when I was done!)

    And for those itching and clawing to get their hands on this…. I would guestimate it took approximately 80 hours to write this (up to 105 pages counting the cover sheet). I have so far spent around 10 hours editing and I still have 9 more scenes to get through. I’m actually not holding back just to be mean, I promise!

    As I’m reading through this and editing I have one thing I still can’t quite decide how to approach (Yes, the title is still a work in progress).

    For the script I have used all the Junkies I know well (or know enough about through your interactions with them) for each character. Unfortunately, I haven’t been around the forums that long and haven’t had the chance to talk to as many people as I see are out there yet! Should I use Junkie names for every character (i.e. WAITRESS, GUARD)? And if so, who?

    And would anyone be interested in seeing the current cast list?

    I actually wrote the ending and it is totally finished and done! I want to do my read-through and take care of some editing before I send it out. There is definitely going to be a passel of silly typos, dropped words and/or nonsense. My first pass-through I found one sentence that was almost gibberish. I still don’t know what I may have been trying to type there, but what I ended up with didn’t make any sense at all!!

    I still don’t have a title, but one of the ones Athanas suggested fits rather nicely, so I may appropriate that one! I’m crap with coming up with titles. Anyone else have any suggestions?

    Are you planning on finalizing it before the end of the month or are you going to continue tweaking it after the deadline?

    I’m eager to get a few pages out (or excerpts thereof) to people and see how serious they are about the audiodrama thing. Actions always speak louder than words. I suspect most folks don’t realize how difficult a project of this magnitude is to pull off. If nothing else, it will give everyone a greater appreciation for the amount of sweat and tears the folks we listen to put in on every free ‘cast.

    Your right about that. As a matter of fact there are phones ringing in Hollywood right now! Joss Whedon is already making a video blog about his newest project ‘Lamas on Top’ a mockumentry about ‘Rambut II’. Eliza Dushku is ready to play Lamas and Sorbo’s personal assistant.

    Due to typical Joss Whedon rewrites “Lamas on Top” will now be called “Lamas Demon Casting” and will center around the agents of Lamas and Sorbo. And in a completely unsurprising casting of J. August Richards and James Marsters as the agents of Lamas and Sorbo respectively has been announced.

    TMZ has Joss Whedon saying “This movie will be better then anything those talentless hack’s Spielberg, Lucas, Coppola, and Penny Marshall has ever made! Dushku and Marsters are the Greatest actress and actor to ever be filmed in Hollywood. I will not be snubbed by the Oscar Comittee this year with this kind of script and talent behind it.”

    In further news a Re-boot of “Lamas on Top” is already in the works with Phantom_reverie of ScottSigler.com fame writing and directing.

    To answer your questions though: In general, one page of script = approximately one minute of screen time. Having said that, your standard movie script is between 80 and 140 pages. More dialogue equals more screen time. Since more dialogue also boosts page count and this is essentially a quantity (not quality) related contest, I have a lot of dialogue! As you know, I read and record everything I write for editing purposes, so I’ll have a pretty good idea by the end of the month what kind of time we’re talking about here!

    None of the issues you brought up are relevant to its eligibility. Evo & company will let us make fools of ourselves as long as we meet certain basic criteria. If you want to discuss it seriously, we can IM about it.

    The big question you will know the answer to but I do not is how long time wise does each page translate to? Is 100 pages long? Or is that only like 300-400 minutes? I have no idea how long an average page takes to read, especially when you put in (or take out) the relevant time for character interactions.

    ATHANAS: I am not going to be able to work with that woman.

    BIGJOHN: And I want to deal with ExotiKali?

    ATHANAS: One problem. If Gmork finds out we thought about taking her down and we’re fucked. And not in the good way.

    ATHANAS: Good job Professor Pongo! Your normal payment of strippers and beer will be waiting when we get home.

    Hmm…. Now, if you knew how it was all going down at the end, it would make much more sense to you. But I’m not going to tell you how it ends. *Pffftttthhhh* Suffice it to say it is suitably cheezy and oh so fun!!!

    On the one hand, your mutual cooperation with Sadock is inherent to the ending as I currently see it. On the other hand I have been taking all sorts of requests (some I could have slept better without!) and would like to continue to do so, especially since this is the first thing you’ve asked for. On the other hand, this is more about getting the pages out and having fun and who cares if it makes sense than anything else. On the other hand, if ya’ll are going to want to record it and treat it seriously (You do know me, right? Are you sure this plan is wise?) then the plotline should make some semblance of sense! All right, we’re way past making sense, but the action should at least be contiguous and fit within the realm of the story!

    Having said that, and looking at the four hands you suddenly have, how does it sound if you just hurt him really bad and make him bleed and then you can still work together so the end all comes together? He could be like your bitch and be okay with you hurting him! That way all four hands are happy and none of them are left, well, empty-handed!

    Only 25 pages to go!!! I still don’t have a title, but hey – what are you gonna do?

    Sadock and Gmork have a tense meeting and things get downright scary when they come after Phantom (with their bodyguards)!!! But we all make it through and, yes folks, we have done it!! We have stolen the diamond!

    Thanks in part to UnknownVariable for his masterful planning, as well as JP, Shadygirl, Beth_Ailis, MuchAdo, SlackerQueen and a very special part played by the one and only Pongo!

    But wait, if we’ve done what we set out to do, why are we suddenly in such deep sh*t?

    Cool Scene of the Day:

    Kali removes her silk scarf from the guards neck. With a gentle push she sends the body toppling over that of the other dead man on the floor. Both look extremely happy, though quite definitely dead.

    EXOTIKALI: Sleep tight.

    Shadygirl bursts into the stairwell.

    SHADYGIRL: Kali! It’s go time. Get your ass out of there. I’ve got it from here.

    EXOTIKALI: Be nice to the naughty guards. They’ve had it rough.

    It is hard to express to most people that no one thinks they are evil. You obviously get it. Everyone (except the insane) does what they believe to be good. Or what they are able to rationalize as justified somehow.

    Truth is a three edged sword after all. There is my side, your side, and then there is what is real.

    BigJohn and Athanas met up with Gmork today and got royally bitch slapped! Belladonna and ExotiKali had a similar meeting with Sadock – I won’t say who enjoyed that encounter more! Let’s just say the two left Sadock and harbored no regrets!

    But now Sadock and Gmork are all up in arms. What did John, Athanas, Bella and Kali say??? And what kind of actions are Sadock and Gmork going to take to protect themselves – from each other!

    I have finally managed to come up with a logline, but I am still lacking a title.

    Logline: A group of villains and scoundrels meet and become unlikely heroes when they face an evil madman and inadvertantly change the world.

    Oooh, this just gets more fun every day!

    Up to 49 pages and counting! Just about at the halfway point.

    The church meeting went well and everyone is on board! Athanas, BigJohn and Belladonna all had their own little troubles afterward, but all for a purpose. Jayguana was very helpful getting Phantom out of a tight spot as she sows dissent regarding Sadock and Gmork.

    Athanas and John discuss the deal and try to decide whether or not to go after Gmork. Bella and Kali have a knockdown, dragout catfight and than have a similar conversation about Sadock! AND – Bella gets her Porsche back!!

    Also, UnknownVariable unveils his masterful plan to Phantom! It’s all about the details…

Is this the last we will see of Jayguana or does he have more devious work to do…?

    Speaking of Athanas and John’s vandalized car – do either of you have any preferences as to make and model? I gave Bella her Porsche, well at least until someone drove off in it!

    It seems pretty obvious that this is time to introduce the whole diamond thing as the classic redirect! You really gathered them all together under the guise of a job, but you give them all (privately) information that makes each want to dispose of another. The plan is to have them all kill each other during the job, and you walk away with everyone’s share!

    Which is how I tend to get myself in trouble.

    I do know how it ends (and Mobiusjava is the big bad who buys it). Ooh, alliteration – hee! So far, Phantom has gotten a job to steal the diamond. She contacts UnknownVariable to help plan it. She says they’ll need some help and gets together with everyone else.

    So now they’re all together in a church (don’t ask me why, it just sounded good at the time) and Phantom is showing them the diamond and the blue prints for the Louvre and saying how much the cut is and…. and….

    I suppose I could close scene there and play the “leave the audience in the dark until later” gambit.

    I posted last night about whether or not any snails would be thrown and had such an urge to write “Time to Escar-go-go”. No sleep makes Phantom a loopy girl!

    I actually do have 75 more pages to go. Finished up last night with us all haggling over the price. 25 million each and you’re arguing with me??? All right, actually Athanas just has qualms about how much I’m getting (since I won’t tell). UnknownVariable gets 15 and SlackerQueen gets 10. It’s all about the risk – the pay has to be proportionate to the risk! And no, I’m still not telling how much I get! (It’s more!) Mwa ha ha!!!

    Last years Script Frenzy I managed to finish by the 15th of the month, but I took a week off last April. If all goes well I will finish early this month to – but at worst I have to be done by the 30th to win!

    I always wind up in many different positions with my partners, both for variety and to share the workload. I don’t think I’m physically capable of performing a “quickie” anymore. I’ll stop there before I hit TMIville. Or did I already pass the city limits?

    Of course for all I know my “plan” might invoke a 30 rack of budwiser and a brick…but I think my character would be more clever than that. Probably will involve a robot and a speargun of some sort…Fingers crossed for the latter!

    Is very bored in the scene. I may have to have something else happen with the ducks to keep her occupied…

    GMORK: You couldn’t have just said there was a diamond at the Louvre you wanted to steal?

    SADOCK: How can you properly steal something if you don’t know its true worth?

    GMORK: I figure out worth with a calculator, not a history book.

    Besides needing a script balance of calm and hot-headedness, this is way more a caricature of our avatars than it is based on fact. After all, who knew Sadock had such a passion for French History (and being all authoritative on knowing so much about the subject)?

    Didn’t finish working til quarter to midnight last night and was way too tired to write. Have to make goal (and maybe get a little ahead tonight) since I finished working early!

    I’m thinking the scene where Unknown Variable will be contacted to outline his brilliant plan to get into, and back out of, the Louvre may happen tonight.

    Also, Bella, John, Phantom, Athanas and Kali will all meet for the first time! Will they make it out of the room without any snails being thrown??

    Than to f*ck them. At best one may precede the other, but I’m not sure the whole black widow thing is appealing to most men! I do see many hints of girl on girl action happening!

    Of course, this will probably be limited exclusively to bitchy catfights, but it sounds so good written the first way, doesn’t it?

    Previously: BigJohn and Athanas allude to “instructions” from Gmork they need to follow, especially in regards to some foul dealings with Sadock and his Gutter Geisha Mistress!

    Can I figure out what’s really going on when Sadock and Gmork answer Phantom’s “personal ad”?

    You were already in the Washington DC story of THE CRYPT.

    Did you like what I did for you folks over on Podiobooks.com? Figured y’all should be immortalized in ‘print’ too since you represented so well and it’s uncertain when a treeware edition of THE CRYPT will be released.
