Girl in a Miniskirt Outside My Window by Charles Bukowski (read by Meg)

Monday, July 19th, 2010

During my second year of college, my creative writing professor had us read this poem. Personally, I see “Girl in a Miniskirt” one way when you first read it, and another way when you read it again. I also believe that it’s a beautiful, and very different poem to be read out loud, and will […]

“To Grow Old With Dogs” by Author Unknown-read by Kristin Magill

Monday, July 19th, 2010

Since my childhood I have shared my life with family pets of all sorts. I had cats, mice, gerbils, a tree frog, a dog and even Madagascar Hissing Cockroaches. My mother instilled in me a great respect for and love of animals that has followed me my entire life. Since my fiance and I have […]

“The Color of Joy” by Caroline Knapp-read by Kristin Magill

Monday, July 19th, 2010

My name is Kristin and I am dog crazy. “What is dog crazy?”, you might ask. To my friends dog crazy is canceling plans because my dog is sick. Dog crazy is not having any money to go shopping or to the movies because we spent it all on dog food. Dog crazy is referring […]

First Chapter of Fight Club by Renee

Thursday, June 17th, 2010

I chose to read a chapter from Chuck Palahniuk’s Fight Club because I love the clever language. It is one of my favorite novels and it was the first novel that I read straight through without stopping. I hate how innocent my voice sounds and I don’t think it does the language justice. Still, I […]

Samuel Taylor Coleridge – Rime of the Ancient Mariner Pt IV & V

Thursday, June 17th, 2010

I chose a selection from Coleridge’s “Rime of the Ancient Mariner” because I thought it would challenge me a little more than some of the earlier readings I did. My first introduction to Coleridge was a reading done by a professor and there is something about the hearing poetry read out loud (and by someone […]

Robocop Guy

Thursday, June 17th, 2010

Robocop525 Lindsey’s Dance Evolution video reminded of theis video that I watched years ago.  This guy’s really awesome and he keeps his act going for almost ten minutes.  It’s insane.

Finding Nemo: Hoang and Annie

Thursday, June 17th, 2010

Finding Nemo Annie and I had fun doing the dramatic pieces so we wanted to do another one for our final performance.  Finding Nemo was the first one we thought of and one that almost everyone has seen and loved.  To keep it simple, there are only two characters, Marlin and Dory.  Annie plays Marlin […]

The Kite Runner read by Megan

Wednesday, June 16th, 2010

I chose to read a section from Khaled Hosseini’s <em>The Kite Runner</em> because it is one of my favorite novels.  This heart wrenching story focuses on a boy, Amir, who spends the majority of his life trying to make up for the haunting act of cowardice that caused him to betray his best friend as […]

“Mere Christianity” by C.S. Lewis

Wednesday, June 16th, 2010

Mere Christianity C.S. Lewis is one of my favorite writers, especially about spiritual matters. His works “The Screwtape Letters” and “Mere Christianity” are both clear, profound, and completely devoid of the parts of Christianity which I myself prefer to avoid. I’ve linked not only my own recording of the first chapter, but also a Youtube […]

The Book of Flying by Sydney

Wednesday, June 16th, 2010

The Book of Flying by Keith Miller I chose to read the first few pages of “The Book of Flying,” written by Keith Miller. I really like the language in this book and the way he writes really drew me into the story with all of the imagery. The story is about a lonely librarian […]
