No more new scripts????
 
These things are harrrrrd to organise and manage. I think we pretty much lucked out with the DD soap, that just all came together and people keep contributing (Bravo is the backbone of the story writing), but it still take a lot of work to keep it chuffing along.
 
Once upon a time I was seriously considering doing a PHD on creative online community projects.
Seriously. I was.
That was about 2002, or maybe 2003…
Should'a done it!

*cue the theme from ROCKY, if you will*
 
Ladies and Gentlemen — Ducks of All Ages,
 
The Czarina is Thrilled to report that this year, the auspicious Year of The Dragon –  2012, we have not one script.  We have not two scripts.
 
No.  
 
Instead, we have, in full wondrous glory
 

 
scripts.   !!!!!
 
They have been securely sealed and delivered to the Panel of Judges.  What will they decide?  We can only wait and wonder.  wonder and wait.
  
it's so Exciting.  XDDDD

Isn't it a much better Idea to wait until we know which Radioplay gets chosen before making a cover?

It is regretfully apparent that Some utterly lack the ability to comprehend the magnitude of demands that The Czarina faces on a minute-to-minute basis.  Thank heavens!  the Czarina more than compensates for this lack, and proceeds.
 
 
First, The Czarina wishes to acknowledge the invaluable aid provided by her Most Esteemed Regent of State (of the Radio Play):  skoolmunkee.  Thanks to this Regent's timely posting, the 2012 DD Radio Play now has TWO covers
  
 
.  
 
These artists, peers of the realm, The Czarina is pleased to name: Sir Roy and Sir Carl.
 
Additionally, BE IT KNOWN, Judge DeathKlaww has stepped down to frolick elsewhere.  Frolick as you will, former Judge.

Meantswhile, Judges 11th Hour, Eddie the R, Hahahahahaha, Unnamed, and Wet Dog are tirelessly hemming and hawing.  So expects The Czarina.  And their efforts will provide you, the fair and fowl of DD, with a 2012 Radio Play!!
 

stupid text editor > links > bullocks.  and according to Eddie Izzard, NOT dog bullocks.

Judge Wet Dog has finished. The Czarina is pleased to have found a judge who so thoroughly considered each script.

We await the decisions of the rest of the panel.



*The Czarina finds it taxing to wait. Ah well*

Well, Maxine McDuff is out, so you can stop practicing your falsetto.  XD
 

 
Yes!!

Tomorrow we will learn which one of our lauded Drunk Ducks will wear the 2012 DD Radio Play's Author's laurel wreath. Is it:
 
awsome owl 98,

Banes,
 
Gullas,
 
Gunwallace, or
 
Kroatz (and did he or did he not use a monomyth?)
 
And the need for The Judges anonymity has passed, so saith The Czarina.  Fine Judges, permit yourselves to be known!  (or don't.  The Czarina will be revealing your identities tomorrow as well)

What…no running commentary in this thread, ayes?

Sure, it's been announced on the main page, but what's wrong with a little redundancy? And for that matter, there's nothing wrong with a bit of redundancy while you're at it! :-D

I for one found it VERY satisfying this morning to go to my neighbors' and destroy all their son's playmobil toys!!

CATHARSIS. And nobody got hurt!

Er…oh.

Okay, I have to go to the toystore….

Thank god I didn't finish that script.  I'd hate to have had to kill you if you had tried to break my dolls, erm…toys. 
 
I'm just waiting for the winning script to be decided so maybe I can start a comic adaptation of one of the scripts that didn't win?  How about it?  Huh? Huh?

Aw, thanks.  I think.  I have to admit that if redundant ramblings were ever an art form, I would be an artistic Genius!
 
So -  it's Great to see other people posting in here!  and just why have I not been running commentary?
 
Because I was converting the word doc into jpegs - and I've finished.  So - YES!
 
For All To Read and Enjoy,  The Czarina gives you (having received it from He Who Wears The Laurel Wreath):  The Duck Always Rings Twice
 
which is an even better title than what The Czarina erroneously cited in the news post (Sorry about that, Gunwallace!)
 
So read up everyone! Learn these characters.
On Friday the passages will be up for the voice try-outs and you'll want to know your character, won't you. XD

Wha-? No, you were not being redundant or rambling at all! 

I WANTED you to! I was REQUESTING some redundant chatter!

…just in case folks miss the newsposts and stuff…and to get lively in this thread, now that I'm not being an anonymous script-submitter!

Hey, by the way ayes, big thanks for all that work with the organizing of scripts and judges and the converting of all those files and sending them and all that stuff!

…I know you have the lion's share of work still ahead of you, but mucho grazius for all the stuff you've done so far!

And congrats to Gunwallace!

Lookin' forward to reading this puppy tonight!

Banes does a pretty great “NickyP”, he'd be the perfect understudy. ;)

We need Kenneth Mars.  He does the best comic German accent ever. Frenchie and now that's a role one can really dig ones' teeth into.

Two words:
Abt Nihil
 
Why go for a fake when we have the real thing?
I'd LOVE to hear him do an over the top version ^_^

Because real Germans can't do funny German accents.  Compare Kenny Mars in Young Frankenstein with John Banner or Werner Kemperer in Hogan's Heroes. Someone who speaks in certain accent is not the best to do a broad comic interpretation of said accent.  Often they can't because their own dialect gets in the way because they are so used to hearing and interpreting the language that they can't wrap their mouths around an exaggerated comedic version.
There are a few exceptions but that's only after lots and lots of dialogue coaching.
We need Kenny Mars to coach Abt Nihil in how to do a funny German accent we might as well just get Kenny Mars.

Yeah? I'm pretty curious to hear it now. Which quackcast was it? I haven't been keeping up with them for a month or two.
 
In the meantime, I'm liking this script. It's pretty funny!

hahaha…thanks ozone.

It's in the last one or two quackcasts.

I know I'm psyched to try some voices! Waitin' with baited breath…are there specific scenes for the tryouts? Ayes is surely hard at work, like some feverish cookie-making elf, preparing all zee files and zee particularz!
