6 not-so random things about me

I was tagged by LibriVox ductapeguy, Sean McGaughey, and while I’ve done my time as Meme-Servant and moved on … I thought I could spin this one on-theme, so … here goes.

* The most common background noise you may hear in my recordings is that of seagulls — their piercing shrieks go straight through double-glazing and my sound-dampener. Luckily for me, I love the sound.

* The modern book I would most like to read is The Hungry Cloud by Tom Ingram. it has cult-status amongst those of us who’ve read it — it is a formidably good fantasy story for older children. Sadly out of print and apparently unheard of by anyone who didn’t read it, I’d still love to meet its author and say thankyou.

* My microphone is a Samson C01U. It was probably the most expensive thing I’ve ever bought in pursuit of a hobby.

* I’ve contributed 293 audio-files to LibriVox, MCed 75 projects past and present, and recorded in 4 languages (mostly briefly and badly, though!) In addition to that, I’ve hosted 15 LV community podcasts.

* I have 3 solos on the go at the moment and am about to start a 4th (but will work on finishing up the others once it’s begun.)

* I like getting feedback. It’s fun knowing who’s listening to what, and which bits they’ve enjoyed or have reservations about.

At this point I’m s’posed to tag on to another six people, but I’m just going to leave it open to anyone who’s not done this meme in a while, and is in the mood … if you-who-are-reading fancy a go, the rules are below, and feel free to drop a comment here with a link to your own post.

1. Link to the person who tagged you.
2. Post the rules on the blog.
3. Write six random things about yourself.
4. Tag six people at the end of your post.
5. Let each person know they have been tagged.
6. Let the tagger know when your entry is up.


  • Hi Cori,

    This is from a HK gent who is so in love with Jane’s series. It’s actually easier to get immersed into the story if one listen to an audio book.

    Thanks Cori, your voice is the best among other in the same ‘Persuasion’, except for the low frequency hum…

    Tommy 🙂

  • Cori, your voice is awesome, and I love your podcast community hosting!
    (I found out about them very recently and… actually I’m starting to like the community podcasts more than the books themselves but don’t spread the word around since it could be a bad thing :)).
    They’re tremendously well scripted/planned, funny and entertaining! Yesterday I was stuck in traffic jam and was listening to the podcast, and at some point there was your nonsense-speedy-random-words part… lol I wasn’t expecting that and I started laughing around while a severe looking women stared at me from another car as if saying “we’re stuck, what the hell are you laughing about!” ahahah 😀
    Please keep hosting those community podcasts! they’re awesomeness!

    ps: little note: I know it must be annoying to write everything down but IMHO those with a script sounds a lot better than those without it. Podcast #88 felt a little weird even if it was nice as always.

    pps: the remixed music is so cool!

    cheers daniele. 😉
