  5. Short Stories

    A short story of mine, Gaia's Breath, is due to be published towards the end of May by Midnight Street Press in an anthology called Strange Days. Trevor, the editor, has set up a Facebook page where he's posting videos from those who are in the book.Each video introduces the author, tells of the inspiration behind the story and includes a story excerpt read by the author. Here's mine:To find the Facebook page, type this in the search bar:Strange Days - Midnight Street Anthology 4A number of the writers in this anthology are well known and well published. I feel very fortunate to be included. Trevor also put my name in the middle of them all on the back cover. I can't tell you how chuffed I was when I spotted this Gaia's Breath is the third story of mine Midnight Street Press has published. The others can be found in the following anthologies:The Little Lighter Girl - Night Light (Midnight Street Anthology 3)Taking Flight - Hellfire Crossroads Volume 7 - IntroducingMidnight Street Press can be found here:https://www.midnightstreetpress.comI hope you enjoy the video.

  8. COVID-19 - What a Mess

    Things are getting serious here in the UK. I'm one of those with underlying health conditions which mean I'm at risk of dying from this virus due to how it can affect the lungs. My lung capacity is already quite poor, plus I have a suppressed immune system. Rob $ I went into quarantine this Monday morning before the government announced in the afternoon that it was recommended. We're to isolate ourselves for at least 3 months. Social distancing and working from home were recommended, as was staying away from pubs, cinemas, theatres and restaurants. A whole raft of measures were introduced the next day to assist businesses and we should be able to apply for a 3 holiday from our mortgages, but we're waiting for these to be implemented and available. Today, the closure of schools from this weekend was announced. Meanwhile, the numbers of those known to have the virus are growing exponentially, as are the numbers of those dying. We have been and are continuing to be sensible when it comes to food and loo roll etc., but the panic buying has been shocking. Sadly, I think there's much worse to come.
  9. My voice acting experience began roughly 3 years ago when a modder enquired on the Steam Skyrim forum if anyone was interested in having a go. I'd enjoyed performing in stage plays and had explored various aspects of performance whilst at university, so I held my hand up. Since then I've recorded parts for Giskard (TEG), Zaldir (Dark Creations), Scythe (Dragon Captions) and for the Dark Brotherhood Chronicles: Awakening mod that is currently under development here. I'm 54 years old and am able to make my voice sound younger and older. Due to where I was born and raised, Bretons are my natural sound, but I'm happy to attempt other races. I'm fairly versatile, have quite a range and am able to record a reasonable Khajit and Argonian but, unfortunately, my Nord sounds like the Swedish Chef off the Muppets. I'm happy to take direction from the modder and understand the importance of getting a voice right. I also understand the importance of committing to a project. Due to the experience I've had over the past few years, I'm pretty familiar with the recording/uploading process, but I'm no expert - possibly a little rusty right now I have a Snowball Ice microphone with filter and use Goldwave. One aspect I should flag up is that I do have health issues which means I may need more time to record a role/s than others. Below are some examples of my voice: This is a few lines I've done for a character who is in the Dark Brotherhood Awakening mod:https://app.box.com/s/smntfzsdj2774qtcu6f3The next two are from stories written by raggidman.

  11. Movie Quote Game

    Okay, there's enough people here who enjoy films for this game to be a lot of fun. The way it works is that someone quotes a section of dialogue from a film and the rest of us have to guess what the film is. Sometime more than one quote is needed and occasionally a clue (rather than 3rd or 4th quote) helps others to get the answer. The person who guesses correctly wins and chooses the next film to quote from. I'll get us started: Character 1. We could do it, you know. Take off, live in the woods. It's what we do anyway. Character 2. They'd catch us. Character 1. Well, maybe not. Character 2. Cut out our tongues, or worse. We wouldn't make it five miles. Character 1. No, I'd get five miles. I'd go that way. Good luck!

  15. Kitties!!

    It's taken a long time, but they have settled in together. There are odd moments where they get a bit grumpy, but that's down to Blue being somewhat antisocial when it comes to play. I've not had a protest wee from Blue for a couple of months so I know she's actually happy with the situation.
