Hey LJers,

You may remember last year's Operation Ichabod, in which I spliced together recordings of you, your friends, and your family members reading an excerpt from "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow." I'd like to do the same thing this year, with all and sundry invited to participate, whether you did it last year or not.

I'm probably going to use Poe's "The Raven," since I wager it's the second-most obvious Halloween literature choice (after "Sleepy Hollow"). It is technically more a creepy poem about grief than a true horror story, but still, it's famous, and anything by Poe just screams "Halloween." Unless you guys would much rather use a Stephen King or Dracula excerpt or something?

Anyway, given sufficient interest, I'll do an official sign-up post shortly after this. Being able to record your voice in a tidy mp3 or wav file is handiest, but voice posts work too. So please indicate your sufficient interest, and ability to rope friends and family into the task, here!

Thank you, my little children of the night.

Edit: We definitely have enough interest. Great! I'll do a sign-up post soon. Thank you again.

This project should properly be called OPERAVEN, right?

Is there any sort of ban against dragging non-LJers (gasp!) with fabulous, sexy, operatic voices (sigh...) into the melting-pot?

(By the way: A creepy poem about grief suits me just fine at the moment. Don't ask.)

Operaven, good choice. Hee. And absolutely drag anyone else in you can. The wider the range of voices and accents, the better the final effect.

I won't ask, but I'm sorry "The Raven" is suitable to you lately. Can't be a good sign.
