Hi Paul, this leaves me with an overwhelming sadness and feeling of cold defeat.
With all our civilized ways, wealth, understanding of the human condition
are we still helpless to bring about change? Seems to me nothing has changed
in man's history. Only the gloss that covers the shit has gotten slicker.

peace to you Paul,
Halo

Thank you, Halo.
Ultimately, it's about the children.
It is sad.

Take care,

Paul

You have a very tough job that not just anyone can do.
Thank you for being willing to "sort through the bullshit"
and for being a persistent bastard. 

Tony may never thank you, so I will.  Sadly, he is probably already tainted.
Let's pretend that the foster care system can fix him.  It's easier.

Bless you Paul...for all the sleeze and bs you put up with.
Sending you a hug...

I like how you put it -- "Let's pretend that the foster care system can fix him.  It's easier."

I work with a lot of women in Child Protective Services. Talkin' about a thankless job. They try, but that Foster Care System...

And yes Kay, that is my voice. I've been spending more time with the spoken word element.

I don't know if it's just me, but I'm unable to access any previous posts by other folks here. I hope others will post in this lounge; it's a whole differennt dynamic when you can hear the author's reading.

Take care,

Paul

Paul, Maybe Rg could help you with that?

Someone suggested to me (a girl friend) that I do something with my voice,
but I tried throwing it and that was a bust.) Seriously, I'd like to sometime
but I sound like an elf.  :rose :rose :rose

MM how bout you write up how it's done?  I am sure it's not hard, but I need it spelled out!  I would love
to give it a try.  We also want to eventually do "voice" in our live reads.

I would like to give voice a try too, but have no idea how to go about it...instructions would be very much appreciated.  :angel:

All I have done Halo is the following:

I bought a microphone for $10 from a office supply store;
I installed it directly into the sound card;
I found that if I installed it into the front of the computer,
I had a lot of static and unwanted echo/distortion.

The microphone came with a basic mixing program;
I'm assuming any micrphone would.

I then utilized my Windows XP Movie maker program
which was relatively simple to figure out:
until I get more creative, I just imported an image and
overlayed the sound recording over it.

I admit I fumbled for a bit over that process,
but, once I did it, it was easy as easy can be.

Once I had created whatever it was, I saved it directly to my computer.
There're other options, but the one that said save directly to
your computer seems to be the format for YouTube.

I opened a YouTube account and just started uploading my stuff.

I'll be happy to answer any other questions,
if the need arises. It is fun. Enjoy!

Take care,

Paul
