Dramatic readings by U235

Postby Uraniun235 » 2011-03-14 09:37pm

Here are some dramatic readings I have done. I hope you enjoy them.


Chapter 1 of ARMAGEDDON?? - as seen on these very forums (includes hastily improvised snarking at random intervals)

Chapter 1, of Book 1, of GORZORD - as seen on "the official universal series website"

(this one's NOT SAFE FOR WORK) a terrible FORD PREFECT erotic fanfiction, as written by someone else (i think it was originally a Gundam Wing slash fic? also i may have ripped off RLM towards the end. not apologizing for it. deal with it.)

A selected episode of the adventures of Reginald and Beartato - as seen on the Nedroid website (features me swearing about a technical malfunction)

Little Nephew's Hip-Hop Pants - as seen on Achewood (includes image alt-text)

I was laughing so hard that my son came out of his room to see what was so funny. :lol:

Somehow the background music just really does wonders for the mood.

That newsreel style music is awesome.

I also like the quick snark jabs.

It's not until someone reads it and doesn't allow your brain to self-skim and edit that you realise just how much fluff and technogoobledegookwidgetry is in there.

I knew the Salvation War one reminded me of something:



The source material for both dramatic readings are about the same level of quality, too.

The first chapter of TSW is amazing. I started giggling at the FBI warning, but totally lost it at "BALLS".

The music is perfect too.

Add me to the list of people who lost it at "BALLS!".

I did do a dramatic reading of this chapter, but the time and space constraints I was working under made my rendition suck vacuum compared to this.

Man, it sounds as if U235 is having a hard time keeping a straight face while he's doing that.
"The rifle itself has no moral stature, since it has no will of its own. Naturally, it may be used by evil men for evil purposes, but there are more good men than evil, and while the latter cannot be persuaded to the path of righteousness by propaganda, they can certainly be corrected by good men with rifles."

Oddly, I almost never have a problem with erupting into laughter. I remember Red wondering how I didn't bust up laughing while reading GORZORD as well. I'm not quite sure why that is.

The text is terrible, but the delivery was awesome. Thank you for trying to make Armageddon??? accessible, but I still couldn't make it more than halfway.

Also, for some reason, I just can't imagine your voice coming from the Uraniun whose photos I've seen on this and other boards. Maybe you just need a goatee.

Somehow that music seems to swell perfectly at all the right moments. Loved the bit about Blackadder particularly.

How in the hell did you manage to keep your voice straight reading that shit out loud, U? There was a couple of points in the Armageddon read I could swear you were going to loose your shit. Do more. This is fucking awesome.
