IMPORTANT NOTE

Jun 4, 2011

Description:

For everyone who subscribes through itunes and stuff - I am having the designations of the different categories on this feed altered. 

Turns out that, since they have spaces in the names, they don't sort properly all the time, for people who wanted one show but not all the shows. 

So... you may have to update your indivudual subscriptions (if you subscribe to individual feeds) once this is completely worked through.

Just letting you know.

Feb 28, 2011

Description:

April, and Scriptfrenzy, are looming on the horizon.  For 19 Nocturne, that means Guest Producer Month, where I showcase episodes that I wrote, but other people put together (just like the two shorts - "Karma" and "The Archway Room" - that played at Halloween).

Equally as important, this gives me time to write.  And write....  and write.

In honor of this, I am taking challenges.  I'm looking for some distinct horror/sci fi/fantasy subgenre (preferably one I haven't done yet) to try cutting my teeth on.  Nothing specific (like Star Trek or Dr. Who), but a type of movie (like "severed body part horror" or "someone deliberately being made to believe they're crazy" films).

I wil truly endeavor to take on the first THREE challenges I get emailed to the show email.  19nocturnelive

Nov 5, 2010

Description:

Well, I don't have any more right now - not really. 

Long ago, I started in on At The Mountains of Madness, and thought I had lost the two chapters I'd completed, but a friend/fan (Adrian Kleinbergen, who did the art for our dramatized version of The Temple) had a copy I'd sent to him ages back - whew!  Hate those computer crashes.

Anyway, if everyone liked this, I might look at doing this again next year - though I will probably mix it up a bit with other horror/ghost story authors (William Hope Hodgeson, M.R. James, Bulwer-Lytton, John Kendrick Bangs, etc.).

Let me know!  I love hearing from fans - and this is a great excuse!

Jul 1, 2010

Description:

I have a LOT of bit parts to fill in the next Deadeye Kid story (sadly, almost all male - that's the Old West for you), and since it seems silly to audition for a character with only one or two lines, I am taking volunteers.

Email me - unless you're absolutely terrible (or your sound quality is - sorry folks, that's life), chances are you will get to be in the next story, somewhere, even if you're just dying in the big battle.

Email me at 19nocturne(at)live.com, and if you have a sound clip - any sound clip - send it along.

I do have a part or two for the ladies, so don't hesitate - and at least one needs a British accent.

[Plus, if you do get picked, you get a glimpse at the script! OoooOOOoooh!]

Question for the fans

Mar 9, 2010

Description:

Hey, everyone - this is Julie, resident madwoman of 19 Nocturne Boulevard.

So, I'm seriously considering trying to take Deadeye Kid out of the regular rotation and ... (wait for it!) turning it into a "10-minutes every two weeks" serial, alternating with Bingo the Birthday Clown.

This mainly depends on my sanity (doubtful at best), and my ability to write me a mess o' scripts right soon (that goes without saying), but I would love to hear what people might think on the subject.  Please feel free to pop a comment in here, or drop me a line at 19nocturne[at]live[dot]com.

Or even come on over to audiodramatalk.com and join in the chat there.

Oh, and - Bingo tomorrow and new episode Wednesday, but never never jam today.

Hey, if you've been thinking about donating, we do have a button right on the side here - any money you drop on us is gratefully appreciated and basically helps Julie to pay for the website and rss feed.

BUT - consider this:  http://sounds4soldiers.org

All us audio drama folks are working together to send a bunch of shows overseas to the troops, and any money donated THERE will help with this very worthwhile project.

So please send money over there. 

Throw some to us, too, if you have extra.  But I can go on footing the bills for 19 Nocturne's "mortgage", while we ALL need help to get enough together to send entertainment to our folks in the armed forces.

Not so much a blog, since my head is entirely hollow at this time of year, but a piece of fanfic I wrote for a contest a while back (yes, fanfic - I know, I hate most of it, but there it is...).

No, I won't say what it's a fanfic of (though I may have mentioned it before), except that it's not any of the standards.... 

Fanfic means I make absolutely no claim to the characters, etc.  That's one reason I'm not mentioning who they are...

7 - Monologues!!

May 6, 2009 01:06:48

Description:

Here's the monologues mentioned in the 'cast:

Monologue A - BLACK SHEEP

No one in the family respects me - the black sheep, they say; or if they're kinder, they call me the prodigal - basically a biblical word for screwup.  So why even try?  Why disappoint them when they all work so hard to point out my shortcomings?  I'll just be the screwup they all believe I am.  Except my brother, of course.  He's just a bit brighter than the rest, as if he might be able to see past my façade, and actually understand the machinations underneath.  So I fear he must die.  He and that bitch of a wife, who gives me that cold fish eye every time I walk into her iceberg-inducing presence.

 

Monologue B - ELIZABETH (from Frankenstein)

I am the cousin of the unhappy child who was murdered, or rather his sister, for I was educated by, and have lived with his parents ever since and even long before his birth. It may, therefore, be judged indecent in me to come forward on this occasion. But when I see a fellow-creature about to perish through the cowardice of her pretended friends, I wish to be allowed to speak, that I may say what I know of her character. I am well acquainted with the accused. I have lived in the same house with her, at one time for five and at another for nearly two years. During all that period she appeared to me the most amiable and benevolent of human creatures. She nursed Madame Frankenstein, my aunt, in her last illness, with the greatest affection and care. And afterward attended her own mother during a tedious illness, in a manner that excited the admiration of all who knew her, after which she again lived in my uncle's house, where she was beloved by all the family. She was warmly attached to the child who is now dead, and acted toward him like a most affectionate mother. For my own part, I do not hesitate to say that, notwithstanding all the evidence produced against her, I believe and rely on her perfect innocence. She had no temptation for such an action. As to the bauble on which the chief proof rests, if she had earnestly desired it, I should have willingly given it to her, so much do I esteem and value her.
