Oh while you're mentioning embedding links to entries... I'm pretty sure the forum is still using the old, unsupported SoundClound widget? Could you work some PHP magic on the forum backend?

Excellent idea, Justin. I am not an avid poster in that section, but you may have encouraged me to do more recordings.

Don't worry, I'll earn it. ;)

Great idea, by all means.

Fox Cunning I'm one of the people too shy (and too crap at playing) to post. This is a fantastic opportunity but I'll be leaving it to the shining stars and rising stars to claim their prize.

That's a great idea, Chix.
May I suggest to add a price for the best outfit?

Not to push you Batwoman but this could be -the- opportunity to take that dive. :)
You can always "test" your recording by asking somebody for feedback in private; someone you trust or are comfortable with.
1.Recording yourself and listening to yourself is very useful.
The next steps is 2.polishing up to something you can publish and 3.daring to submit it :)
try to involve somebody in step 1 and two as "consultant" and it might guide you to step 3?
You have to create the piece yourself butthat doesn't mean you can't ask for help when it comes to helping you conquer the hurdles ;)

btw

-It doesn't have to be video! a soundclip is ok as well.
-It was never said that you need to sing on it.

Wow, I'm blown away by the generosity, kindness, perceptiveness, humour and great suggestions here in this thread since I posted my stupid post. You are AWESOME people and I thank you for your encouragement.

@chix and joerfe, batwoman is only ever seen in a brief flash of greys and yellow. A video? Nah  ;)
@Lieven really good suggestions and I'll work on them. I've made a little recording for a friends birthday, lets see how that goes.
@close, I'm aiming at 'kickass' thanks for the goal. Thanks too for "Some day, some time, soon, you will look back at this and overcome your obstacle". I'm gonna believe this.

Huge and heartfelt thanks.
