More Dorkiness

It appears they finished recording the King Dork audio book. According to this, anyway, it's six hours and thirty minutes on six CDs and it's read by this guy. Presumably the pronunciation of "Wig Wam Bam" and "Foghat" went off without a hitch.

(I'm not absolutely certain, but it's my understanding that they're going to include all five of the "book songs" I recorded last year as bonus tracks.)

That guy looks like a total jackass.

you should read it aloud and record it, frank.

they don't make audio books for every book do they? is it more common with young adult novels because they would rather listen than read?

I have to say that I think having a company pay a guy (several folks, of course) to engage a studio and do an audiobook of one's words is ne plus ultra cool. I'm not blase about that at all, but I'm so so 20th there.

Enjoy wriggling with pleasure with yourself, although I hope also with your wife/sweetie.

Wriggle now.


Okay, take a fifteen minute break before repeating. Then repeat as necessary.

This is a pretty good mix of books to be associated with:
- James and the Giant Peach
- Siddhartha
- Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day
- How I Became a Pirate

It's hard to imagine another book having those connections.

apparently that guy lost the fingers on his right hand in some sort of funky-white-guy-dance accident.

I'm not ordering until you guarantee the book songs are included with the audio book!

Well, Jim, I know they're going to put at least some of them on. I'm a little out of the loop on that end of things. Of course, I'll let you if I find out anything definite.
