Jumping into the ds106 audio, assignments, I wanted to take on ones that had few takers so far- and I remain stumped why Suess It was not given some ds106 attention:
Take a Dr. Suess book, or perhaps the Berenstain Bears, or one of your own favorites, and read it to us. Give me your best Yertle the Turtle, or Lorax, or Mama Bear and have fun!
Now just reading a book to me is not really doing ds106 in the “bring us your A Game” style- that would be just following the task literally. I think it should be done in an over the top (or under the bottom fashion). The choice of a book for me was easy, not juts because of my regular inclination to do something dog related, but because truly, Go Do Go was my all time favorite Seuss book as a kid. My copy was covered in crayon sketches (the clean one above was given to me as an adult, and I have kept the crayons away).
I do not have my copy with me, so I read as much from the book as Amazon had on their peek inside.
So here is my wobbly imitation of Tom Waits reading this book
The background music is from the internet archive- a live recording of Hillbilly Jazz in Nashville (1975). This was recorded directly into Audacity, with the music imported. I like using the envelope tool to vary the levels of music to have it fade in and out, and drop under the spoken voice.
Go Tom Go!
