If you are not part of the choir, it means you either did not sing at Joe's direction, or you didnt sing in key with Chigwinkle's RECord (or both), or you had excessive noise in your RECording. You may also have spoken the words or played an instrument - I wanted this one to be strictly acapela.
I tried to retune as many RECords as possible, but some wouldn't re-tune sensibly. If you still want to be part of the choir it is not too late! Simply follow Joe's lead, and sing in the same key as Chigwinkle. BE SURE TO LISTEN TO THE AUDIO BY HEADSET while you are RECording - we don't want the sound of Joe or Chigwinkle bleeding over to YOUR RECording.
I'll re-do this next week sometime, which should give those still wishing to contribute time to do so.
aka Shakespeare Sonnets 1-13
These Shakespeare sonnets belong together So I recorded them for you today Sir William lectures a young man about The virtues of storing his seed away (I wrote that!)
It is my belief through research and reading that William Shakespeare's sonnets were written to (or about) another "Will."
This Will - as was pointed out by many - was most likely a young man he spent quite a bit of time with as Writer, Director, Owner and Operator of his own Acting troupe - a member of the cast used to portray the female characters.
As such, Shakespeare would have known this other Will for many years and seen him grow from the age of 11-13 to perhaps 30 or older.
THESE Sonnets - 1-13 - I theorize - were probably written after Shakespeare walked in on a younger Will while he was getting busy with himself. MORE likely (again - just an educated guess) - young Will was ALWAYS sneaking off to take care of some pressing business, and this motivated Shakespeare to give him "the talk."
Many an article I read pointed out how these sonnets are completely in the order Shakespeare intended them to be placed, and they put a lot of weight on the fact that certain ones were given certain numbers for a reason. I suggest that the reason there are 13 of these - and the reason they are at the front of all the sonnets, is that the age of 13 is typically the age of puberty. Since ALL the sonnets are about sex and beauty, and love (and hate) - it seems only logical to put the ones about masturbation at the beginning. But - that's just me thinking - not trying to sound scholarly at all.
edit 9/18/2011 --> I've done a lot of research since RECording these sonnets and have changed my mind about who the voice of elder poet is for these 13 sonnets. It's part of a screenplay I'm working on and although I haven't changed my interpretation at all I have placed them into an interesting scene that involves Queen Elizabeth - but most of you will have to see the movie to know what I'm taking about - maybe in about 8 or 10 years?
To me - this is Shapespear's version of "the talk." And the writers of the masturbation (sex talk) scene from Weeds thought they were being original?
There is NO denying that THIS grouping of Sonnets is ABSOLUTELY about the "evils" of masturbation.
I hope you enjoy this reading!

She knew everything there was to know about him
And she'd watched all his movies and TV shows.

***I took a little liberty with the fantastic story by iamcharlie, by paying more attention to the number of clouds as opposed to the number of doors - playing with the concept of what it means to be on cloud 9. I also changed some other minor parts of the story, but I think this conveys what iamcharlie was after - at least I hope he thinks so! I've been working on this almost non-stop for almost a week now - this is the most complex animation I've ever done!
