My first recording in weeks … and is it the Gibbon I owe..? No. A bit of J.S. Mill..? Nope. More Elegaic Sonnets..? Unfortunately not.
It’s the first fifty digits of pi, read in a single breath (for one file) and in the World’s Most Awful Pirate “Accent” (separate file, and you’ll have to look it up if you care, I refuse to link such dreadfulness directly.) I’m not the only fruit-cake around, there are 54 other variations on the theme. Almost completely pointless (especially for people living in countries where the date will never read 3/14), but a huge amount of fun to put together. And if anyone ever DOES find a good use for this little lot, I’d love to know about it!
Should this, however, merely have whetted your appetite for number recitals, you can find a great recording of the first one-thousand pi digits in the Insomnia Collection. ’nuff said.[audio:http://www.archive.org/download/pi_0803_librivox/pi_50_onebreath_cs.mp3]
