2.22.04 Short List -- Finished

Promise. Product.

I'm fighting off a cold, but between naps yesterday I managed to produce my little one-minute Short List described in yesterday's entry. Who knows if the Transom and NPR folks will like it, but it was a great way to practice my vocal skills. I tried using the appropriate intonation for each quotation: intimate, scolding, resigned, sophisticated, plain-spoken, passionate, etc. I had my usual why did I ever start this stupid topic moments, but it turned out okay.

Like just about everyone, I hate my voice. But, it's what I have -- a cheap resource -- so I might as well make an improvement project out of that too.

Listen. Remember, the idea is to present a "list" of some sort, making the listener wonder what the connection is between the items. At the very end, the connection is revealed.
