' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' posthumous has written a great Christmas poem in this thread and I thought it would be a good idea to get a different member to record each line, and put them all together into a community poem read by people around the world! If you're interested, reply in this thread with the line number you'd like, and email me a recording. If you can record it as cleanly as possible that would be great and make my life easier compositing it all. I'll add the name of the person recording it to the end of each line.

Also, in the recording please read the lines before and after yours as if it was a poem, so that when I edit it it flows together better! This should be good! :)

Think Band Aid! :) We have 4 days till Christmas, lets get a move on!
