Transcripts Update -October 2020 *post updated regularly*

Hi Everyone, hope in these universally stressful times you are staying well and looking after yourselves.

Time to review where season 4 dialogue transcripts are up to, then we’ll get on with the walk Smile . It’s time to see who is interested in contributing, and reassure everyone this is not an obligation – smk is for fun- and don’t feel any pressure to do this!! My priority for upcoming posts is transcription of Lee/Amanda scenes – if you’d like to volunteer and just transcribe them, go right ahead, I think it’s likely for some upcoming episodes they are going to be walked through with less posts!

Note: This list is a living document, and I’ll update it as things change. Here’s a summary of where transcripts are up to for remaining Season 4 episodes:

Completed: [Huge thank you everyone!!!!]
10. Need to Know – Sara transcribed
11. Santa’s Got a Brand New Bag – Clagjanet transcribed
12. Any Number Can Play –Learjet transcribed
13. Promises to Keep – Clagjanet
15. Bad Timing – Sara transcribed
16. Do You Take This Spy – LeeLovesAmanda
19. All That Glitters  – Clagjanet transcribed
20. Suitable for Framing – Peacockdancer transcribed
21. A Matter of Choice – Peacockdancer transcribed
22. The Khrushchev List -Learjet transcribed

Assigned and confirmed to be underway:
14. Rumors of My Death – Cindy D has volunteered
17. Mission of Gold – Clagjanet has volunteered
18. One Flew East – BJo has volunteered

Sorry if I’ve made a mistake here – just let me know and I’ll update the listing. No pressure on ANYONE to do this – I can continue the walk without transcripts it will just be a bit different/shorter. For some season 4 episodes maybe that’s for the best?! lol. so many I don’t remember!!

I’ll publish a separate post – another living document- covering where Operation Sandstorm is up to very soon. So we can together work with Petralit, to figure out where Operation Sandstorm is up to (So anyone wanting to contribute can do so). This post is now published. See HERE. 

Take care all!! thankyou2

  1. Hi All, I’ve just updated this post.
    Latest Update
    No reply from Melissa R (if you read this Melissa hope you are okay) so at this point I think it’s safe to open the two episodes up to other volunteers.
    17. Mission of Gold – ??
    20. Suitable for Framing – ??
    If there are more than 2 people really wanting to do some transcribing – people can split the eps if you like whatever you want!

    Operation Sandstorm Update
    – I need to hold off publishing a post update on this at the moment. I’ll update when I can.
    There are eps needing transcribing but I need to confirm the current status before I publish a new list. I’ve emailed Petralit about it and need to wait for a reply. It’s only been a week and life is crazy so I’ll give it a month and if no reply I’ll chase it up then. I’ll update once I have accurate info.

    Apologies to Happy Camper
    Happy Camper replied to me and I screwed it up. Thanks for your efforts and again… I’m sorry! eek!

    Iwsod needs to make a JWWM Housekeeping Request
    You guys wouldn’t know this but, when you email me and share your real name privately – sometimes you guys have the same name lol. I got confused eek.

    Can I ask in future if you email me – feel free to use your real name but also if you can, please include your handle too
    This will help confused Iwsod to not screw it up again.

    Thank you!!
    Thanks all for your generosity in working together to get JWWM transcripts and Operation Sandstorm transcripts completed for us all to enjoy – Transcribers – I Salute You!!!

    • Thanks Clagjanet!! I haven’t heard from Melissa R. I think I will email her one more time to see if she’s able to continue, if she doesn’t reply in a week I think it will be safe to allocate her transcripts to others. I would like to give her a chance one more time. Hope that’s okay and thanks so much for your very kind offer.

      I’ll try to publish an update on where Operation Sandstorm is up to soon!

  3. Iwsod, do you still need someone to transcribe A Matter of Choice? If not I would be very happy to do it. I just watched that episode the other night and enjoyed it more than I remembered.

    • Hi Peacockdancer, yes I’m still looking for a volunteer for A Matter of Choice.
      Yes please if you could do it that would be awesome thanks!
      I’ll update the blog post to reflect this.

      • I had a lot of time this weekend and managed to complete the transcript — I just emailed it to you. It was so much fun! Back around 1990, I transcribed “One Bear Dances, One Bear Doesn’t” to send to my sister while she was at summer camp (we were both obsessed with the show). Let me tell you, it is WAY easier to transcribe using Amazon Prime and a dual-screen setup than it was using a VHS recording of the Family Channel!

        I loved doing the transcript and would be happy to take on any others if you would like.

  4. Hiya iwsod – Yes! I do still want to transcribe One Flew East. Any chance you could remind me what the requirements are? e.g. format, etc. It’s been a while since I’ve done a transcription and not sure what device my prior transcription is on to look.

    • Hi BJo, thanks for confirming you are happy to keep working on the One Flew East transcript!
      As for formatting..
      Well firstly – you can choose to just transcribe dialogue if you want, or you can do both dialogue and descriptions of events and contribute toward Operation Sandstorm. It’s up to you.
      Formatting is not super complicated -you can see a transcript on the http://www.smk-land.com website
      Or, here’s an image of Sara’s Need to Know transcript to give you an example:

  5. Hi Everyone, I’ve updated the blog post to reflect the current status of episode transcriptions. If I’ve stuffed up please let me know!

    At this point, I haven’t heard from BJo, or Melissa R – but these 3 episodes are quite a while away so I’m not too worried at this point. I might give it a few more months, and if someone really wants to do it at that point maybe we can re-allocate them.

    I love how our lives change over time, and sometimes people have time for this and other times they don’t – but when it’s not a good time for you, it might be the perfect time for someone else!
    You guys rock!!!!

  6. Iwsod – I just sent ClagJanet the transcript for Do You Take This Spy? so she can look it over. She will send it on to you once she’s done.

    Do you have any other episodes that need transcribing?

  7. OMG… grab the drool bucket and smelling salts! I just finished transcribing “Do You Take This Spy?” I don’t know how I got through transcribing this episode without major bruising from all the fainting due to the swooniliciousness that is this episode! I’m going to give it a day or two rest and then watch it again and make sure I have everything. I’ll let you know. 😀

  8. Hi Everyone, thanks for your comments and emails related to transcribing dialogue for remaining episodes in the walk!!!! I am honestly blown away and had zero expectations here – so thank you!!!!

    I’ll just flag with you guys that the one transcript making me just a little twitchy right now is 4.13. Promises to Keep.
    I’ve emailed Happy Camper but haven’t received a reply yet. But it’s only been a week. So I’m going to hold off making any changes to allocations for another week. I understand there are way more important things in life than SMK and JWWM! 🙂

    I’ll be looking to start writing up Promises to Keep soon.
    (I’m about to start writing Santa’s new bag.
    Am walking through Any number can play, then Santa’s new bag, then Promises to keep)
    … so I will need to finalise things for Promises to keep within the next month.

    SMK is for fun!!! and if I don’t end up with a transcript I’m just going to write up the episode as best as I can anyway, while trying to have fun!!!!

  9. I’m a little of a fourth of the way through “Do You Take this Spy?” I should be done in a couple of days. I’m an insomniac who lives by herself and is isolating because of COVID. I needed something to do.

    • If you (or anyone else doing this) want to send it to me when you’re done, I can do the sanity second check of rewatching with it in front of me to check for errors. I find that I’ve ALWAYS missed something! Lol

      My email is clagjanet@gmail.com

      I use Petra’s site all the time for writing fanfic and needing the dialogue so this is entirely selfish of me to want these done! 😂

        • Do you have the option to use captions? If there are repeated words, that sometimes helps. Also, it has helped me when they weren’t speaking into the mic. Another pro tip, transcribe with headphones.

        • There are two types of “uhs”. The first kind are sometimes useful because they show that someone is thinking out loud and shows the conversational beats. The second kind are BB trying to remember his line and you can watch his delivery speed up as soon as he remembers. 😂 … So it’s up to you if you want to include them.
