Sam attempts to use modulating tools to lower his voice. Sam fails. Sam is now sad.

      I have absolutely no idea what a modulating tool is or why you would want to alter your voice. This is great reading a little fast at the beginning, but once you truly got into your Krazmaz stride it was JUST BRILLIANT. I love how a lot of your stories tend to end with someone just being randomly killed. It's sort of an amazing cop out, but it works wonderfully, with your superb dialogue. And is it better than the others? Well I thought they were all fab, so I can't really judge. It's a gift Sam embrace it, don't bother with strange devices I have never heard of.

      Sorry it's me again, but Block's voice was brilliant as you did it, it was deep and rumbling and you made me feel so sorry for this inanimate yet animate object. I even didn't mind when Teddy got crushed! It just seemed like a natural progression. Like a hug from Block. Poor thing, I also loved the bit about him being human once before, which asked so many questions, how had he been turned? Maybe another short story!

      Love it - I really love the way you give inanimate objects lives.

      Something that I've been noticing a little is that you're tending to speed up your delivery a little. I wonder whether you need to slow down just a tiny bit.

      But I'd say don't bother modulating your voice - it's great. Just keep it steady and clear and we'll gobble up anything you care to post...

      Oh - and do let us know you've posted something by popping the URL on the message board - I didn't notice this and gulp - almost missed it!!

      Actually, listening more, the speeches are just fine - perfect speed. It's the 'story' bit that could slow down a little.

      But I just love Block.

      Who else would think of giving counselling to a solid brick wall? I love these random little stories Krazmaz. They always make me smile. I often listen to them when I've had a horrible day, and then my family give me strange looks for laughing so much at apparently nothing. As always, brilliant stuff. And I wouldnt worry about the modulating stuff - your voice is deep enough anyway!

      Often times I am mistaken for my father. My father is in his mid-sixties. Does this mean anything? No really, but it amuses me. Hur hur hur.

      No Kraz we all turn into our parents eventually. Although I'd say you must have a cool father.

      My dad is awesome, though sadly going boating together is now somewhat difficult.
