Well, damn, mine doesn't scroll down, it stops at 11.

And, call me old-fashioned, but I just hate those added sound-effects/soundtracks. Hate!
(Not that I'm unwilling to take it; if it's the only available, so be it.)

Thanks. I heard that one years ago, your Banjo post brought back memories.
Banjo, at least many years back, was much worshiped down here in Texas.
I'd never heard most of those poems though. Thanks for putting them up.

I said: "This is the stuff Texans pretend to be."
I should have said "modern-day Texans".
I'm sure the old ones were every bit the equal. Or so my grandpa used to
tell me -- he was known to embroider a bit.  For part of his life he was a
traveling salesman; he sold barbed-wire to the ranches. He got the King Ranch
contract for a few years, made him somewhat rich -- not that it took him much
time to go through it. He carried a 32 tucked in the small of his back.
"A woman's gun", he'd say, "but it's enough to give them pause".
(I still have that 32, got it from my grandma.)

Yes, that works fine... well, so much for what else I'd thought of accomplishing tonight.
Damn, such wonderful stuff -- I'm just a kid full of romance I guess.

Ok, well, now, shit, it's working.

Except that 17 isn't Banjo; it's labeled "hhhh" and it's Carroll's The Lobster-Quadrille
A unique counter-point, I must say. Smile

Oh, and I love the new format, everything in a scroll-down box. Cool.

Well, got out of sync there, but everything's fine. Smile

All this audio stuff is great. While it's important to a writer to read lots of poetry, I think it's even
more important to hear it read. I've always thought of "spoken" as it's true form. (Call me
old-fashioned again.)

Maybe it should have its own heading, not be mixed in with the other stuff?

This format works on Ipad, yay, wish it was all like this (Not your fault I need a new laptop and I keep my work puters on mute. Smile). You're working your ass off, billy, much appreciated.

the reason it's there is because the orator simply added it in without telling anyone Big Grin

it should soon all be like this. it's a lot quicker for me than doing separate mp3's in separate post
