Yesterday was the last day of Listening Project recording, and now I’ve got about 15 cassette tapes! I knew my fears were unfounded, but as a friend of mine said today, “it’s the curse of academia.” You never know if you (or anyone else) will make the deadline. I have clandestinely kept a photobooth diary of my feelings: every time I received something for the Listening Project (tapes, tape recorders, recordings…), I’d snap a little photo of myself with said item(s). So, for your viewing pleasure, a triptych of emotion:
In other news, I’ve already received some emails and notes from people who didn’t make the deadline but still want to participate. SO, to accommodate you slackers (it’s a term of endearment), I’ve decided to leave the Humanities Center tape recorder out for a little bit longer. All the materials you need are available in the office (and I may create some kind of basket outside the office to make the process even more convenient)… don’t forget to sign the recording release form!
And of course, a BIG thank you to everyone who has already participated. I cannot wait to hear what you have to say.
