The time for voting in the first (0th) Spoken Word Fun Challenge is upon us!

Update [2008-4-18 17:25:15 by R343L]: I just realized I should have a deadline for voting. The deadline for voting is next Wednesday, the 23rd of April, Midnight Pacific Standard Time. Or if I forget, sometime the next Tuesday due to being at Coachella.

See the original story for "details". I really have no suggestions on voting criteria, especially as the rules were kind of, um, broad? The entries were (in a half-assedly non-random but not straight from the order of posts order):

606 -- P.J. O'Rourke's "How To Drive Fast On Drugs While Getting Your Wing-Wang Squeezed And Not Spill Your Drink"

ucblockhead #1 -- Robot Boy

Gedvondur -- "Poop" by Gerald Lochland (I think?)

misslake -- What Canadians Don't Know About Love by Irving Layton from "Love Where the Nights Are Long"

ucblockhead #2 -- Something about him being a physic professor or so he says.

R343L -- Excerpt from Leaves of Grass "Song of Myself" by Walt Whitman

alphagirl -- Untitled c.2002, by the performer, perhaps called Ribs.

komet -- "Inexpensive Progress" by John Betjeman

toxicfur -- "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs" by Anne Sexton

hulver -- Dead London (from The War of the Worlds by H.G. Wells)

ana -- "Paper, Scissors, Rock" by ana himself

fluffy -- Jabberwocky, by Lewis Carroll (Dodgson, whatever!)

MisterQueue and another MisterQueue -- They go together, so he says. I don't know where these came from, but they are certainly fair entries.

motty -- Ashrei HaZorim by Avraham Ben-Yitzhak (motty's translation)

tuscoops or tuscoops -- Two different readings of "En Gallop" by Joanna Newsom

devtrash -- a monologue from Goonies

clock -- Major spoiler entry of a Dad reading to his baby son Goodnight Moon.

Please vote on your favorite however many you want! Well, I think the "standard" for fun challenges is 2 or 3. I think.

Please let me know if I missed any readings (spoken by actual hussies) or messed up links or missed someone in the poll or someone would like the text describing their entry changed or whatever. I will take it under advisement.

The Poor June ramble doesn't qualify? by fluffy (2.00 / 0) #2 Fri Apr 18, 2008 at 01:11:53 PM EST
Why not? It's spoken-word. And I'm sure the phonemes were recorded by a microphone at some point.

I have to make some arbitrary restrictions. And, as I excluded yicky's Attenborough clip,  ...

I didn't know that hulver had such a lovely voice.

I voted for some.

Thanks to all.

I've said too much already.

R343L reminds me... by Metatone (2.00 / 0) #7 Fri Apr 25, 2008 at 11:46:35 PM EST
of an NPR presenter, whose name I cannot recall.

Hulver should be on Radio 4.

motty should be doing voiceovers for Discovery Channel's "Israel Archaeology" season.
