A Christmas Carol, by Charles Dickens—Stave the Fourth, Stave the Fifth

Dickens of a Christmas

Music used in this Audiobook with Benefits compiled from

  • "Carol of the Bells" from Community Audio Internet Archive
  • Holiday Brass Ensemble, Nemesis, 12 Days of Christmas, and The First Noel all from the YouTube Music Library

Subscribe at iTunes--> New? Find out how to get all the audiobooks-with-benefits--> Dickens of a Christmas Blog Hop (from 2010, but still excellent recipe links!)


 

From the text:

...and Bob served it out with beaming looks, while the chestnuts on the fire sputtered and crackled noisily. Then Bob proposed: "A Merry Christmas to us all, my dears. God bless us!" Which all the family re-echoed.

"God bless us every one!" said Tiny Tim, the last of all.

In the 2010 holiday season a group of us hosted a Dickens of a Christmas blog hop:

There are recipes for the traditional foods Dickens wrote of in A Christmas Carol, or recipes that would have been found in Victorian England around the holidays. There were giveaways (sorry, finished), themed knitting patterns and quite possibly hats! There may have been smoking bishop and suet cooked in organs. And there was certainly much making of merry.

We hope you enjoy this as much as we know we did! And we hope that you have a DICKENS OF A CHRISTMAS!

Please buy the album. The man is a flippin' musical genius because half of what makes his parodies work is that they sound SO MUCH like the original ("Grapefruit Diet" and "Yoda" being two that come to mind right away). Plus, I think any of you who have worked in a cubicle will get a kick out of his new song "Mission Statement".

Dickens of a ChistmasI added some audio to the Dickens of a Christmas Blog Hop a couple of years ago. Those general podcasts are linked to below via their shownotes.

There are video versions (where you can see the artwork from the original Dickens) and audio-only versions as well on those pages.

If you've never heard the original story it's not long and well worth a listen. Much of it is familiar from the movies and plays, but the bits that don't often get done are lovely, too.

Just more bookish than theatrical.

Enjoy--and have a Very Very Merry Christmas!

BONUS EPISODE-"Masque of the Red Death", because... tis the season! And because Jon Scholes ROCKS!

So, to celebrate, I thought I should give you easy links to some other seasonal audio:

And while I can't knit right now, if you can or want to, you should check out Meg's latest Grounded sock—Jenn's Subtle Majicks.

UPDATE: I had this all set to go out automatically, but I know word has been spreading on the interwebs and my radio silence while taking an hour nap this morning incited panic on Facebook.
The upshot: I'm fine.
I'm typing slowly with one hand b/c my left arm is useless, probably for two or three more days. After getting the flu and then pneumonia last winter, I got flu and pneumonia shots Tuesday morning... in the same arm. This is evidently not something my body liked and it has rebelled.
Ungodly pain hits when I move my left arm. But I've currently got it pinned to me, Napoleon-like, and good doctor drugs let me get some rest.
So.
The other epic fail was getting the Grounded audiobook up this week. Computers conspired as did health, so... next week!
Enjoy the podcast, I'll be fine, and things will return to normal (giggle::snort) next week.

Music by David Beard, “Restless Spirits

  • Cool St Augustine facts!
  • Polonaise
  • Pharisee update
  • Ulster Coat
  • Susan said about St Augustine:
    This evening as I was going to a class at Flagler College I was listening to the episode where St Augustine is first mentioned. The College is in the old Hotel Ponce de Leon, built by industrialist Henry Flagler in the 1880's. It was designed by Carrere and Hastings, who also built the NYC Public Library. The college is celebrating the 125th anniversary of the building this year. For a time it was the nicest hotel in the world, with many original Tiffany windows (that are still there), beautiful architecture and even electricity with wiring put in by Edison. It was The Place to go in winter. It's a pretty amazing building. There is a student run tour twice a day, and it's very popular. It was definitely for the upper classes only. Flagler built another hotel across the street, but it was not quite as nice although It did have a casino and the world's largest indoor swimming pool.
    The Hotel is built on land my ancestors farmed in the 18th century. Later, one of my great great grandfathers was a hunting and fishing guide for Henry Flagler and his guests. Hmm, I probably should have read this book a while back, huh? (Heather's Note: I love these brushes with greatness we get! More proof y'all are the best!)
    Later, Flagler moved further south, building the railroad that ended in Key West. After he died he was buried in the mausoleum of a church he built here, right near the hotel. In fact, I parked in front of it tonight! His first wife, as well as his daughter and granchild are buried there.
    I will attach a couple of pictures, from postcards, that you will find interesting. (I have these cards in my postcard stash. I'm a Postcrosser,) They are fairly self-explanatory. The modern photo shows the dome of the church Henry Flagler is buried in. It's Memorial Presbyterian, although my friend insists on calling it the Presbyterian Mosque. It's pretty elaborate.
    The hotel became a college in the 1968. The college is small, but highly rated.
    (Also, on another note, coquina is pronounced Ko-keen-a, not Ko-queen-a. It's a Spanish word, so a lot of people make that mistake. I can't remember which episode this came up in. Before Age of Innocence, though.)

It occured to me that you haven't a clue what beauty awaits you in "The Canterville Ghost"!

This was subscriber-only audio which now lives in the Shoppe. It's such a hidden gem of Oscar Wilde's I started to feel bad that more of you didn't know how fantastic is is.

So.

Here!

This is most of the first bit. There are three parts which make up the whole book. If you want it, you can get it here.

The Age of Innocence starts June 28, 2013.

In my effort to be more efficient, I've also created two email lists:

Hope that's good and useful for y'all!

See you in two weeks!

Just in case you wondered what the heck was up with Bleak House on the subscriber feed (and why ANYone would want to listen to something called Bleak anything) I thought you might enjoy a sneak peek. (Details on Streaming Subscriber option; details on Download-only Subscriber option)

This is a sneak peek of chapter 1.

And in case you were wondering what the EeBooks are, this is a link to the start of the Enhanced eBook of Bleak House Chapter 1 as a ClassLit-BleakHouse PDF. We're still working on getting an ePub for iOS version and a Kindle version (formatting for these platforms is REALLY weird and wonky—but we're close). The EeBooks link out to the CraftLit and JtB audio as well as helpful contextual links from the book text itself.

Direct icon-links go to the CraftLit and
Just the Books mp3 audio which covers the indicated chapter

 

Still a few spaces left for Hanging Out online in a face-to-face book group chat about Jane Eyre! 8:30am EDT, 1:30pm EDT, and 9:30pm EDT are the times on Wednesday June 5 (which gets almost every timezone at something like a convenient hour).
