Story Roadshow - Another AO thing.
I was going to keep this under my hat 'til everything's done and ready, but like Sisyphus' burden this may never happen.

While I'm not being a Ridiculist, or a rock-n-roll bureaucrat, I also do a bi-weekly Internet radio show where I read whatever public domain novels I can find.  Some of them have been surprisingly good, most of them are entertainingly bad.  I read them as straight as I can, so there's no snark on my part if I can help it, and the reading is live as well.

I'm mentioning this now because the next-scheduled reading is for "Master of the Universe" which several of you expressed an interest in.  Does that still move you?  Excellent.

This Sunday, at 22:00 EST (GMT -5), connect your audio client to "http://vps.thisisnotatrueending.com:8000/listen.nsv".  VLC is an ideal program for this, but I imagine you can also use Winamp.  There's also  an IRC chat at vps.thisisnotatrueending.com, port 9999, in the #drama channel.  The IRC is where some of the audience gathers to discuss the reading as it happens, and I will paste in gibberish paragraphs or words for clarification and occasionally react to the audience's questions. 

Hopefully I'll see you there.

I will definitely check this out, if I can be bothered to wake up that early. If my dogs want me to hear this I'm there.

So that was A Thing, and if you stuck with it so far I can say the next reading will likely involve A Contract and... goddamn, people paid money for this?

SPEAKING OF OTHER PODCASTS:

Well, it's not a podcast, this shit is still live, and this episode has a live studio audience!  Part II of "Master of the Universe", the precursor fanfic of "Fifty Shades of Grey," this Sunday, 22:00 EST.  Connection info in the first post of the thread.

You should totally be there because I won't be posting recordings for some months yet.

Do you have your other readings recorded and archived somewhere for those of us who want to hear some samples?

Monday morning for me? Ace, I might just be able to make it. Monday is my "get up early" day.

I've diligently recorded most everything, but haven't made any of it available at this point.  It'll eventually happen, I think the world needs to hear some of this--"Destination Saturn" or "The Moon People" spring readily to mind.  But for now, it's live or nothing.  (Though if you can't stand the sound of my voice in a podcast, two hours of it live will drive you batty, I tell you what.)

RE: This episode just finished.

I don't normally snark this much, but we'd sort of made a drinkin' game out of the reading and I was finding myself annoyed, so what the hell, flippant commentary throughout.  Fuggit.

As a gentle, last minute headsup, this will be the fourth and last reading of "Master of the Universe", with Drinking Game Rules, and possibly also a surprise guest possibly maybe if the stars are aligned correctly.  Same time and place as usual, be there or be the person that even nerds mock.

I don't think it ever bled into the recording (probably due to Acier's masterful editing) but the echo effect was a sonofabitch.  We couldn't read anything without trying to shout over our 2-second-delayed selves.  It's a good thing that we were trashed or else that might have come off unprofessionally.

For a very quick-and-dirty multi-Internet-mic broadcast thing, I'm pleased it worked, and was amused that my on-mic bitchin' about the echos was a theoretical concern for those listening.  I have a few ideas I'd like to try to minimize future echoing, but some of these ideas are going to require advance planning.
