Operation Ichabod

This is the official sign-up post for Operation Ichabod, in which your job is to read aloud one line of "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow." All are encouraged to join! Here's how it will work:

1. Leave a comment here if you want to participate. Sign-up period ends in one week, October 24.

2. Shortly after Oct. 24, having counted up how many people are signed up, I will assign your lines to you.

3. You record yourself speaking the lines and post them as a LJ voice post, or email the sound file to me if you're more tech-savvy. I know .wav and .mp3 files will work with my software, and conversion of other types might be possible. We can try.

4. If choosing the voice-post option, let me know by email or LJ comment that you have posted it. I might miss it otherwise.

5. All accents and ages welcome!

Now sign up!

Okay! Your appointed line(s):

In the dark shadow of the grove, on the margin of the brook, he beheld something huge, misshapen and towering.

Please record in .mp3 or .wav format and email the file(s) to me (my ladyirony earthlink address); or do it as a voice post, then comment here to point me to the post. You have till October 30, so I can splice them together and (hopefully) have the file ready for general listening on Halloween. I'll be listing everyone's LJ names (or whichever names they prefer, for those not on LJ) along with their lines so we can stick voices to names as we listen.

Thanks so much for joining in!

Okay! Your appointed lines (4 parts, to divide among yourselves):

It stirred not, but seemed gathered up in the gloom, like some gigantic monster ready to spring upon the traveller.

The hair of the affrighted pedagogue rose upon his head with terror. What was to be done?

To turn and fly was now too late; and besides, what chance was there of escaping ghost or goblin, if such it was, which could ride upon the wings of the wind?

Summoning up, therefore, a show of courage, he demanded in stammering accents, "Who are you?"

He received no reply. He repeated his demand in a still more agitated voice. Still there was no answer.

Once more he cudgelled the sides of the inflexible Gunpowder, and, shutting his eyes, broke forth with involuntary fervor into a psalm tune.

Just then the shadowy object of alarm put itself in motion, and with a scramble and a bound stood at once in the middle of the road.

Okay! Your appointed line(s):

He made no offer of molestation or sociability, but kept aloof on one side of the road, jogging along on the blind side of old Gunpowder, who had now got over his fright and waywardness.

Ichabod, who had no relish for this strange midnight companion, and bethought himself of the adventure of Brom Bones with the Galloping Hessian, now quickened his steed in hopes of leaving him behind.

Okay! Your appointed line(s):

The stranger, however, quickened his horse to an equal pace. Ichabod pulled up, and fell into a walk, thinking to lag behind--the other did the same.

His heart began to sink within him; he endeavored to resume his psalm tune, but his parched tongue clove to the roof of his mouth, and he could not utter a stave.

I would really like to sign up myself and my fiance. However, we are on vacation until 10/27. Can we still participate? :-(

(I'll let you know if I can get my parents to do it, too. They have Irish and English accents, respectively. Have to ask them first though, heh.)

Even if I can't do it, I think this the coolest idea ever. ^_^

I think you can still do it. This is just the sign-up deadline--the deadline for recording the lines will be, I guess, just before Halloween; say, the 30th. So as long as you think you can manage that, you're in! And yes, parents too if they are willing! Let me know. Thanks for the enthusiasm! :)

Okay! Your appointed lines (one for each of you):

Away, then, they dashed through thick and thin; stones flying and sparks
flashing at every bound.

Ichabod's flimsy garments fluttered in the air, as he stretched his long lank body away over his horse's head, in the eagerness of his flight.

Okay! Your appointed line(s):

They had now reached the road which turns off to Sleepy Hollow; but Gunpowder, who seemed possessed with a demon, instead of keeping up it, made an opposite turn, and plunged headlong downhill to the left.

Okay! Your appointed line(s):

This road leads through a sandy hollow shaded by trees for about a quarter of a mile, where it crosses the bridge famous in goblin story; and just beyond swells the green knoll on which stands the whitewashed church.
