Well, I got my to-do list mostly covered, and more quickly than I expected. I’m working on what today’s reading will be– What? You think I plan these things ahead of time? Again, dear reader, you give me far too much credit. I may appear to be organized, but that’s all done with smoke and mirrors. I had to train myself to place my keys and wallet in the same place every time I enter my home. Otherwise I would never have money or transportation.
But before we get to today’s reading I wanted to bring you a couple from a man whose voice makes me jealous. Plus he’s damn cute. Back on day six of this little challenge I arranged for myself of 30 poetry readings in 30 days, I sneaked off to the restroom at work in order to squeeze in the day’s reading and upload it from my phone. That reading was Shakespeare’s Sonnet 130. Now, this man you are about to hear, Matthew MacFadyen, does something similar to what I was trying to do when I recorded Simic’s Stone on day 15. Matthew, however does it much better. I suppose, he’s got a better budget, camera and director than I do… See what I mean, jealous. But then again, I haven’t seen him do a restroom reading yet.
