“Okay, tune into the Voice Chat at 6 central for the next chapter of The Hobbit”
“Are you gonna do the voices?”
“Abso-frikkin-lutely am I doing voices.”

Fuck yes. Do the voices. I'd listen.
"The mic on my phone is vlaaad. The impaler. My eyes bleed every time I speak."

Audobon Society's Pocket Guide: Dinosaurs
Closest book I had to me

It's time
And then I read the first two chapters of the Hobbit to whoever wanted to listen, voices included. My Bilbo was properly hobbit squeaky, the trolls sounded like bogons, and it was surprisingly fun. I have no idea how I'm going to pull off a convincing Gollum once we get to that point.

That said! I've been going through some stuff, and I think it'd be cathartic on my end to have something lighthearted like this to look forward to and (hopefully) entertaining for you all if I kept going. I'm thinking a chapter or two once a week on an evening that works the best with your schedules, unless someone has a better suggestion. I started tonight right after 8pm my time (central), and it took a little under two hours to get through the first two chapters, which ended a little late for the east coast, so I'd want to start a little earlier if you guys want me to keep going.

If you're interested, lemme know what day works the best for you, and I'll gauge interest and pick a time/day from there.

I missed it, but would love to hear some of it at some point. Is there any way to listen to a clip of it after the fact?
