I should have done this ages ago, but better late than never, right?

So, the amazing [personal profile] luzula organised this group cast podfic of [personal profile] omphale's Horseshoes and Hand Grenades and the lovely [personal profile] crinklysolution invited me to be a part of it and we generally had an amazing time and the finished product is pretty darn cool if I do say so myself.

Here is a link to Luz's post for the project.

[personal profile] luzula read Benton Fraser, [personal profile] crinklysolution read Ray Kowalksi, I read Ray Vecchio and [personal profile] helens78 read Frannie and a bunch of other cool stuff. Luz, with crinkly's help, found the sound and music snippets for the section dividers, which are amazing. Plus then [personal profile] podfic_lover did a wicked podbook thing for it with the images from the original fic as section covers. So, so much fun to work with an awesome team on something like this.

And, for posterity's sake, here is a youtube link for the original version of Cold Missouri Waters, as sung by James Keelaghan. (And what the heck, here is a live version, 'cause I couldn't decide which I like better)

The Cry Cry Cry version (included at the end of the podfic) is totally awesome, and is the one most people know. But I grew up in southern Alberta and James Keelaghan was my favourite musician in the whole wide world between the ages of about 7 and about 12, so his will always hold a special place in my heart.

More podfic! Two whole podfics!

Parts 1 and 2 of Dira Sudis' awesome series The World That You Need.

I hope to do the whole series, we'll see how that goes, but I definitely have a few of the later parts done recording and just in need of polishing, so I think I'm off to a good start. Giant thanks to [personal profile] crinklysolution for beta listening to these even though she wasn't familiar with the source material (wasn't - note the past tense - mwhahahaha!), and of course to Dira for letting me record these.

Summary: It had been years since they'd had a proper culture-clash fight.

Even if you haven't read the Vorkosigan books (and, really, what are you waiting for? Seriously, they're that good.) I think this might be worth a listen. Dira's fantastic characters and relationships have a way of getting you invested, even if the characters in question are complete strangers to you.
