The sincerest form of flattery

Inspired by George Hunka's first podcast, which is excellent and can be found here, I thought I might contribute a bit to the audio blogging world, with this piece I recorded at home. Instead of commentary, this is just snippet of pieces of text, using my own voice. I've been fiddling around with different texts and choral things like this on and off. Did this in my basement. Looked silly. Had headphones on, alone, staring at my laptop.

It happens to the best of us.

Either way, using this forum to share a bit of the strange things we all call process, and snippets of me fiddling around with my work, is a nice change from just hearing my opinion about the work.

So here you go. It's about three or four minutes long, streaming audio. Here.

ok. freeman.this rox. It is seriously amazing. You should know that I listened to it like 4 times because my creative juices started gushing as I listened to it and I got about a million good ideas for the next play I'm directing. So thank you.

It occurs to me that this is another fabulous way for the blogosphere to be useful in artist's connecting. Fueling each other's creative juices bysharing our progress, our art, and our perspective. It's amazing.

Matt -- I wonder if podcasting could signal the rebirth of radio drama...
