New! From the Old English Channel on YouTube!
Hey, cool viewers! Here’s a new video on YouTube. Come hear Grendel’s attack on King Hrothgar’s Heorot! In Old English even!
My husband Sean found a phase-inversion problem with the sound that caused it to basically cancel out all sound (“mute it”) when YouTube converted it to mono. This means that I made four videos, and they sounded fine when played on our computer; but when we loaded them up on YouTube, they sounded awful, all quiet and garbled. My shoulders sagged. I had worked and worked, with many “takes,” before getting them just right. But my husband is literally a genius. For two weeks he worked on this problem until he understood it and fixed it. SEAN BUTCHER ROCKS! Of course, you’ll see I do use “well” wrong in the video, but I liked the rest of it so much that I left that little gaffe. Hey, if the monks could leave a space open and not painted in in the illuminated manuscripts to suggest the inability of us mere humans to be “perfect,” then surely I can accidentally err and then leave it in. Such a small thing, the notion of perfection. Such a large thing, the notion of mystery.
Enjoy! And be sure to keep the lights on, for Grendel is coming to town!!!
