I have been getting on with one of those ‘get round to’ jobs that sometimes gets thought about. I have on cd the BBC Radio Collection of all five serieseseseses of Douglas Adams The Hitch Hicker’s Guide To The Galaxy. As much as I enjoy this particular dramatisation I do get fed up of the opening and closing music/credits every half hour and as the whole series involves 26 episodes, after hearing the lovely Peter Jones say ‘You have been listening to ….” half a dozen time you get sick of it. So I uploaded the cd’s into iTunes [only because it has the handy ‘join tracks’ function’] and using GarageBand have now gone through each track editing out the title music and the closing credits and music … thus I now have five tracks, each containing the complete series without interruption.
Now my editing skillz are reasonable but by no means is the finished result seamless, and I don’t mind that, I can now load them to the iPad and as it will remember my place, I can enjoy the series in its whole. There was of course the usual hiccup where the Quandary Phase got marked as the Quintessential Phase and vice versa but this has now been rectified.
So remember folks the answer to the meaning of life, the universe and everything is ……………. 42 …………… and as the dolphins left they did leave a note thanking us for all the fish … not forgetting that the Earth was a 10 million light year experiment being run by the white mice [shame the Vogon Constructor Fleet came and destroyed everything a few seconds too early].
Not a great deal else happening ….. no great projects begun or finished, just filing each day with something, trying to organise Christmas and avoid Halloween. An old school friend came a visited mea couple of weeks back, we ad not seen each other since leaving High School years ago and she remarked how ‘tidy’ my house was .. of course I denied it and scanned mentally listing the things that needed tidying or putting away or just generally dealing with, lol. It was fab to catch up and we plan to do so again one day soon. Her daughter is making cross-stitch decorations for general sale, lovely little things.
