Blip Collaborative Tales Project – Tale 001 – Untitled (so far)

Wherever i was in the 1970’s – mom’s, dad’s or grandma’s place -, i had my radio with me. That was home for me: my radio.

So, you can understand what a disppointment it was when i started to go deaf. It was a shock I had never felt. So strong, that i found myself Lost for Words too. From that moment on i knew i would have to face my worst enemies: my parents. They had never understood me and had never understood my pain but without my music I had no where else to go… Feeling mad & without friends I rebelled & turned to music. I learned to play piano & read notes before total hearing loss occurred.

One day I read about an amazing girl who, at the age of 17, was perfecting a way to “see” sound with a breakthrough device. When it was that this girl with eyes in her ears came to my life, she longed across distances back to me.

She sent me a package. A letter, written in symbols, and a pair of strange glasses. When I put them on, the paper came to noisy life. Just before the glass shattered, cutting my cheek, an address blazed across the room: the address of Johnston’s Opium Den.

That is it until now.

Project Deadline Postponed

Due to holidays season and extremely-busy-workdays-right-after-holidays season, the project was in a kind of stand by mode and the dealine was postponed.

I will start to get the project back in the track in this evening and there’s a new deadline date: February 19th, 2009, 20h00.

Apologies for the delay and let’s get back to the story.

Organizing and Formating Code

I think we will need a code to indicate when a new paragraph should start in the story and other formating needs.

If you have any suggestions, comment in this post, please.

PS: Oh, yeah. If you didn’t notice yet, you should set you blip to play bottom-up to read and hear the story in the proper order.

It’s alive – Blip Collaborative Tales Project is started

Ok, the experiment has began, with the Blip Tales user blipping the song Transmission, by Joy Division, and the first story phrase:

Wherever i was in the 1970’s – mom’s, dad’s or grandma’s place -, i had my radio with me. That was home for me: my radio.
