Good people -
 
I respectfully request that if there is a PQ or email from your Czarina, you kindly respond.
 
If you HAVE responded, then you know I'm not talking to you.  But if you haven't tumbled your way thru emails recently, or cracked the heavy lid to your PQs, how about giving those a try.
 
with great affection and decreasing patience
 
TC

Ack.         only 16?  
Just 16 likes?  Come on.  COME ON!!  The radio play comic deserves more than THAT!!!!!!!!!
especially during Bravo Week.  
check it out – c'est magnifique. 
 
edit—
Thanks #17 and #18.  Aren't you glad you liked it?
Afterall, this is not MY comic.  This is a comic comprised of about 2 dozen contributors, from  judges, writers, covers, voices, to page artists.  Without them:  nadda.  Just because I love it doesn't mean I did it.
 
I only wish I could do something this good.

I think I like the way this years comic turned out more than last years. It seems more diverse and cooky!

The comic is indeed “cooky”  It made me breakfast yesterday and has promised it's special meatloaf tonight.

The comic is also kooky but I attribute that to the script.  Gunwallace's skewed word play encourages and inspires an equally skewed interpretation.

*coughs*  (a couple of weeks away and just look at all the dust that accumulates)
 
So Hello, Ducks!  How you’ve been?  Wondering what’s going on with the play?  
 
Well, I ended up with too much on my plate, and so I asked every Drunk Duck’s good buddy, the one and only Banes, to please create the broadcast from our voice recordings, and of course he said “of course”.
 
He’s working his way through the project while he continues to aid and abet many
other good projects, in addition to his own comic.  So we’ll be waiting
awhile longer for the spectacular masterpiece, but – in the mean time . . .
 
I heard the question posed “Who’s Bill Duck?”  
This is Bill Duck:


Well, that’s one possibility.  But if you would like to know who  voices Bill Duck, along with the rest of the talented voice cast, then you can find the answers in the comic on this page.

have fun! XD

 Banes has become “the man” lately, huh? Hosted a bunch of QC's, edited the soap opera, and now the radio play? Way to go, dude!

At last, I have become a man!

Yes, lots of work with a certain detective's voice tracks, and today with a young mister Gullas, who made me laugh several times with his wacky performance.

Gettin' there!


ohohohohohoooooooo! OUI!!!

Aw, thanks, skool!

Yes, everybody, the radio play stuff is coming along very well…the bones of the play are in place…but there's a fair chunk left to do with many sound effects and stuff like that.

Look for something in the next couple weeks!

Attention all Ducks!

The fop-clown-prince has been deposed and the Czarina has returned!

Ayesinback is on the case, and surely will do this thing right!

The play is alive, and she will be sure it sees the light of…er, well, the sound of…I mean, the sounds will reach all of your ears.

The thing is so good, script-wise and vocal performance-wise, and with ayes at the helm, the whole package should be just gangbustas!


All good intentions aside, I was not making headway, not nearly enough at least…so for all who doubted, doubt no more! The true One has returned!


coming soon, to a podcast near you.


Hooray!

hahaha.  I believe “The Man” is a far more apt description than a “fop-clown-prince”!!
 
Banes has pieced together all the dialog bits and now I get to be creative with some music here and some sfx there. all good stuff, So a huge: THANK YOU, Mr. Banes!!!!
 
OK - so I've worked this Saturday for most of the day and only have the first 2 of 19 pages done.  On the upside, it's fun.  On the downside, most days aren't Saturdays.  So the continuing patience of the Duck population is again requested and most appreciated.
  
But  (yeah, I'm biased, so what?)  I'm liking it   :-)
 
oh - and to those who might find an email:  a response would be most appreciated.

Some of it will be familiar, since it's a McDuff mystery.  the rest:  only the swankiest, particularly if you think Cheestos are swanky.

A little update  (especially since I went around today posting like a mad woman, again, in a few threads):
 
So:  I like's what we gots, so far, which is roughly two-thirds, maybe even 3/4.  Per NickyP's *implied* request, The Czarina is taking care to have a polished “soundtrack” and I think it just might beat out last year's play.  But then, I love all my children …
 
The thing is:  I will be away 6-15 Aug (Alaska, baby - vacation - no internet, let alone audacity and all that good stuff).  I might be able to finish up the sfx and music add-ins, but there a few “surprises” that have not yet entirely jelled.    HEY!!!!  you people know who you are  >:(
 
Anyhow, I'm still hoping that everything will come together (like Geoffrey Rush's character does in Shakespeare In Love), and there IS a Plan B, just in case my hope is for naught (still lookin at you-know-who-you-are), but  
 
well, I've got to pack!  And I gotta look at my itinerary, because I already know there's a train dumping us I-don't-know-how-many-miles from my hotel, and - well - I'm not good at hiking with luggage  (the truth is out) … 
 
So - sorry.  Again, it's not immediate, but it IS still in the works.
 
and,  to you CRAZY people who voted the comic for best mystery/noir:  awesome!

Announcement:

The 2012 DD Radio Play Is Done! WOOT!! Wa-wootie woot woot!!

And I like it! Oh sure – still amateur stuff, but I feel that those little blubs and blurbs just give it a homey, tangible touch. Right? (dam tootin’ right).

So there are roughly 3 dozen people to thank, from the judges to the last-minute cameo recordings, and not forgetting those awesome comic page artists that brought their brilliant visuals to play.

Here, then, is the 2012 Radio Play Drunky Duck Roll Call:
