Can I just say putting together one of these damn things by yourself--especially if it's a new experience and not just a thirty second bit--is bloody difficult. As much as I would have liked to make it continuous, that was nearly impossible, given the number of times I lost my train of thought and ended up uttering gibberish.
So, instead, I put it together piecemeal, recording clips over three days. Some segments took twenty or more takes until I got over my nerves, stopped stuttering, and figured out what to say. But I think, for my first effort, it turned out all right. I don't mind the roughness of it, and, most importantly, I managed to get across the message I wanted to.
I haven't uploaded it to YouTube yet.
