  • well – I’ve got a number of different songs in there. All of it is strictly illegal, so I’ll probably go to jail soon.

    Does the music make it difficult to follow what’s going on? Or does it make my droning voice a little more palatable?

  • Rob,
    In all honesty, it’s a little monotone and soft. You’ve got a good podcast voice but seem to be concentrating on reading to much and not of emphasis on words or emphasising the wrong word.

    In a nutshell, big potential, and good going for a first go.

    Have a listen to a podcast from Lugradio to see what I mean. (It’s about open source, sorry :oops: )

  • Hallo Everybody,

    I’ll be off in the next 30 minutes, so to my fellow Sharks supporters enjoy this one (vs. Stormers) it’s going to be good… :mrgreen: To the Bulls, get ready for a slaughter 2nite, it’s not going to be nice… :twisted:

  • I thought it was brilliant for a first time effort, and getting the voice and emphasis is sometimes difficult initially – I did speech and drama 30-odd years ago, so I know wot I are on about!!!

    Turn the muzik down a tad and do it more regular like.

  • you mean “de nada”? :)

    It’s easier to get your tone and inflexion right when you’re talking to other guys! Also, this was almost completely unscripted, so next time, I’ll actually write down what I want to say, that way I can practice the delivery better. Episode Two (the blog wars) will hopefully include the dulcid dones of some of my fellow editors as well, so hopefully far less of my flat Pretoria accent ;)

    The only one with a dulcet tone is Charlie.

  • Rob,
    It does at times. Other times you quieten down towards the end of the sentence. If you pick up your volume a bit and “modulate” your voice it a bit it will be brill. It’s probably me being pickey though.

    Big Fish: How are you Big Fish?

    Big Fish: I’m fine Big fish, thanks for asking. And yourself?

    Big Fish: No, just dandy.

    Big Fish: So, whats your plan for the weekend?

    Big Fish: Watch rugby and hopefully get some lovin’. How about you?

    Big Fish: Well, its a bit of a coincidence, but pretty much the same.

  • Hi Rob…I thought you did just great for a “first time”….also felt you were holding back on your voice volume…ollie is on the spot there.Your voice is very good, but watch how you end your sentences…don’t drop your voice…or as my Speech teacher used to say…swallow the last couple of words. :smile:

    I didn’t get the impression that you were reading from a script, although at times your voice did become a little monotonous!

    It worries me that this is only going to be every fortnight….a longer podcast could get a little boring (people tend to lose concerntration after 10 minor so) a weekly summary of the week’s games & news like this one would be better. Also bear in mind most will be listening from work!!!

    PS – I am a Speech & Drama graduate & qualified teacher :grin: :lol:

    One request though.

    Is there a possibility that we are able to DOWNLOAD the cast? My QT player sort of hangs midway through and then having to try and stream the whole thing again is just a “pyn in die gat” :wink:

    Still sounds awesome though.
