podfic love banner


Banner created by [livejournal.com profile] me_manuever Thank you !


So, a lot of us (and by us, I mean podfic artists/readers) have been feeling really sad and tired and dispirited lately. Something that had been fun, has become for many people a source of stress and doubt.

I think we could all do with a little love. And while I may not be able to get over my own Issues, I can at least hopefully show all the podfic artists out there that what they do is valued and loved. Humans are story telling creatures, and what we do is part of that tradition. We are sitting round virtual campfires, telling stories to the dark. And, while we may not see our audience, there are at least fewer bugs.

So, inspired by [personal profile] brimtoast I bring you the Podfic Artist Love Meme!

How-to!
1) Post your name below in a comment
2) Snag a banner to promote it in your own journal
3) People reply to your comment to tell you how AWESOME you are!
4) Profit! Ummm... you bask in the warm glow of love for your performaces :)


This hopefully goes without saying, but this is a love meme. There is a time and a place for crit (for those that welcome it), but this isn't it.

I've only listened to the two fics you read for KB, but what really struck me about them was the way you strike a really nice balance between being too breathless and rushed because zomg sex and being too distant because zomg sex. If that makes sense. :) I also like your pacing.

I love your podfics, buddy! You bring the emotions of stories out so well for me, and you know how I like emotions. I love your pace, and your hilarious music choices, and the way you do the coughing and sighing and laughing and husky voices where appropriate! I listened to 'All These Places', that one by torch, and 'Kiss Nine Times' for ages and ages, and now I listen to 'Normal Working Relationship' constantly. Also I like your tendency to record my fic. Um. But I do love your podfics very much :)

I just saw a couple of your vids at con.txt this weekend and they were among the best of the lot. *love* And 'James Bondage' was the clear winner if you went by the amount and enthusiasm of audience reaction.

\o/

ETA: And I just realized this was a *podfic* love meme. Oops.

"All These Places..." breaks me every time, with all the emotion you put into it. I find myself holding my breath sometimes when I listen to "Call Soft Enough" because of the anticipation in your reading -- you make the pacing amazingly sensuous!

Why has this taken so long? Only god knows. I find your voice superlatively comforting, maybe the best voice of all the ones in my library to listen to to go to sleep, or just to make me smile, consistently. You've got wonderful character and you're always easy to understand, and I'm so glad you read podfic.

First, there was Sabotage. It makes me grin like a loon just to think of it. Sabotage was, I think, my introduction to podfic - it felt like podporn, actually - and I think this was before we met IRL, so your voice just blew me away. Seriously, I could embarrass myself in this space writing about how much I LOVE your voice and the way you read (and read porn, GUH). There are still some quotes from Sabotage that I still hear in your voice when I hear the same words in different context sometimes - the counting down, the way you say Elijah - even though I haven't listened to Sabotage in more than five years. ^_^

And then, it was even luckier that we shared a fandom in SGA and you read so, so much. I can't even say what my favourite story read by you is, because anything read by you is automatically a favourite. I looked at my audiobooks by ana list and tried to pick, and it's certainly The Group-W Bench that's been played most often. But there are so many more that I love!

Plus, I love your attitude when it comes to podfic'ing. But you know that. :D

I could listen to you all day and night! In fact, I have. :) I listen to a lot of podfic when I have really intense migraines and can't do anything but lie in a dark room listening to spoken word. There's something about your voice and delivery that works perfectly at times like that. It's soothing but not at all boring or monotone and it always makes me feel like you're sitting there reading to me. Of course I don't just listen to your podfic when I'm all migrainey; sometimes I listen and stitch.

I think the other reason there are so many of your podfics on my iPod is that I like what you choose to record. You don't shy away from porn and you like a lot of the same "classics" that I do. Also, I like your pacing.

If you ever get tired of translating for money? You could make a *killing* in the phone sex industry, your voice just *drips* sex. It's just so lush and sexy and *seductive*. I think the 'I Hear Bells' series was where I first fell in love with your voice, the one with John/Rodney/Cadman. The things is, you don't even *try* to be sexy, I think you could read me *anything* and I'd be ridiculously turned on.

I listen to your podfics alllllllllllllll the time. You have such a mellow, smooth voice and intonation, and I love that you record shorter stories, which are ideal for me falling asleep. I've listened to your recording of punk's That Particular Month stories approximately 1 billion gajillion times, because you bring out the sexiness and sweetness and gentle humour of them so well.

I have made a note in my files a while ago that you love shorter stuff for falling asleep, as well as stories dealing with food and sleep. Some day all this data will probably lead to a podfic tailored-recorded for you... *g*

I have had your voice with me on buses, on planes, in libraries, in bed, walking around town, doing housework, working out, cooking dinner . . . you are often the soundtrack to my life! I adore your pretty voice and your approach to storytelling - the way you always make me feel like you're sharing something with me, sharing your love of the story or the delight you feel in telling me a story. OMG I love your podfics so much! I cannot tell you this often enough. I listen to The Group-W Bench for comfort, and Fun With Comas for heartbreak, and Feeding Frenzy for the sheer hotness of it, and That Particular Month for cheering up, and Term of Service for cuddling into a story, and and and! Your Rodney voice in particular - oh my goodness, your Rodney voice! - makes me grin like this: -> :D :D :D (especially when he is outraged!Rodney, as in Read My Mind at the end). %hearts;

Aaaah, HI! I don't listen to podfic very much or very often, but Amnesiac was the first of yours that I ever listened to and is one that has remained on my iPod ever since. You just make it so bloody charming, it's irresistible! It's at the top of my go-to pile for when I need a podfic that will make me smile!

I really really enjoy listening to you read. Hearing the words in a slightly different cadence than I would usually hear in my daily life makes me hear them that much more clearly--and there's just something about your voice that feels good.

I've listened to "Amnesiac" so many times that I hear it in your voice in my mind's ear even when I re-read it off the screen. I've also enjoyed your work on "A Beautiful Lifetime Event", "The Group-W Bench", and "Four Boots, Five Thousand Two Hundred And Eighty Feet".

Thank you so much for sharing the results of all your time and effort in creating these readings.

Your voice and reading are amazing. The sexy stories and the funny stories and the serious stories -- all awesome! My favorite memory is of hearing you read "The Group-W Bench" while I was waiting for a (late) evening bus in the falling snow. Not that I was stranded in a storm or anything, like the characters in the story, but your podfic was a comfort (listening to hot action on a cold night ;) ).

I've just listened to you for the first time; I really enjoyed your reading of "Amnesiac" - there's a lovely soothing quality to it and a particular life lent to the tale in your inflections. I look forward to listening to more as I get deeper into SGA!

I only have one podfic by you, Rebuilding Babel, but I'm not actually sure why that is, because I adore your reading of that story and really should listen to more things you have read! But I just re-listened to Rebuilding Babel on the train the other day, for the eighty bazillionth time, and it's still faaaabulous - your character voices are subtle and feel right to me, and I just get so sucked into the story, mainly because your pacing is so perfect. Many many <3s!

Thank you so much for this! I try really hard to be expressive with my reading and showcase the author's words, so it means a lot that you would make note of that. Thanks for taking the time to spread the podfic love (especially on DW - I seriously didn't think that this thread would get any comments at all. I just assume that nobody knows me on DW)!

I love podfic. I live out in the bush and commute around NZ as well so I drive and ride planes a lot, and I have no idea what's happening in the world these days cause I never hear the news, I just listen to podfic! So many great readers above like penny and dodi and anatsuno, and a lot of you are writers as well as readers like thingswithwings and toft. I just love it all, so big hugs for everyone.
