Comment Here By Telephone

Perhaps the written word escapes you and yet you still feel the need to express yourself about something you’ve read here? Now, in addition to leaving text comments, you can phone your comments in by telephone.

Just click the Add audio? checkbox on the regular old comments form, and then enter a little text preamble. Post your comments as normal, and then watch your email for instructions on how to telephone in your comments.

Follow the instructions and your audio commentary will appear attached to your original comment for the world to hear.

This is experimental — the result of a late-nite procrastination session — so it might not work completely or as you might expect. Or it might be a silly idea to begin with. Feedback (textual or audio) is welcome.

You can now also call in via FreeWorld Dialup.

Very cool! Seems to work well, however, I can’t help but think of the potential for serious crank call abuse.

How about illegal MP3 uploading and downloading?

Pure novelty. Text is detached, dry, and objective. Voice allows personality to seep in, those harmonics that cloud reason. I like how I appear in text, my voice is too personal.

Weird…It did feel like I’m leaving a phone message. Which is why I say “Bye” at the end.

I like it though.

Chris Corrigan? Not THE Chris Corrigan, lead singer of Corrigan and the Born Again Pagans! I thought it smelled smarmy in here… How’s it going guy? How goes the crusade?

Yeah Lisa…it’s me…which Chris Corrigan did you think it was?

And btw, I never sang with the pagans, but I wrote all the music for the Caberet performance…after Bacchus in 1989 my association with the Pagans ended and they became a REAL band!

The crusade goes as well as can be expected underthe circumstances. You have cute kids!

As well as can be expected? How very equivocal of you. Rock on dude. Long live the Cultural Revolution, eh? Or was it the Shining Path? Anyway, whatever. Send your wife my regards.

Did I say wife? I meant to say fat cow of a wife. My apologies for that oversight.

I BEG your pardon?

I’m not sure what kind of 15 year old grudge you’re holding, but I might respectfully suggest you get over yourself.

Oh sorry. I thought I was just being honest. I’ll tell you what, why don’t you post some links to photos of your wife and we can all vote on whether we think she’s a fat cow.
