What is your favourite accent?
But I also like a refined Westcountry acccent!
there's something i never thought i'd see.
HO HO HO.
is a refined westcountry accent???????
serious like. if you're westcountry, you're 'farmer' or 'posh'. there's no middle ground.
westcountry accent, well I think I do...
that I could be described as "refined Westcountry" too
the edinburgh accent works well on both male and female
I'm anyone's if they are French... (sigh)..
cos i went out with a nice girl from there
my god. the only good reason for calling the O2 customer service line and hoping for a male. they're all scottish.
listening to them speak is like sex.
From my experience, those calls last a LOT longer than two and half minutes.
can you do it in 2.5 mins?
that includes the stretching exercises too.
very many....i mean, shit thats loads
The boys from 3 are all Welsh when you're updating your phone and they're all very flirty!
unless she's naked and talking sex. That's sexier
god damn it. however the accent that turns me up is the scots accent.
terrible "School's Out" programme on BBC1 last night? The French woman on that.
she was not that sexy
done her. but no she wasnt that nice
She was ace. And she spoke French. Thus, she was MEGA-ACE.
but just remembered she had glasses on therefore you were more likely to like her!
when she was slightly uppity and domineering?
He likes a dominating woman!
She looked like she could take charge.
And, as Hannah says, the glasses improved he by about a ZILLION PER CENT.
are fit on girls
blokes felt like that!
glasses = sexiness
I wear them so they must be
rule. my bird alternates between glasses and contacts, thus keeping it interesting. she does look totally different in specs
i know everyone has seen the pictures with me without but i wear proper geek glasses, even when im djing and that.
glasses are the new scene. lol
usually I wear contacts though!
would be a bit pointless me getting contacts though, unless I spent 24 hours a day looking at a computer screen...
or the teesside one because thats mine!! its like a crazy north yorkshire durham hybrid.
fog on the tyne all mine all fog on the tyne
Don't know where it's from, but the one Paddy Considine has in A Room For Romeo Brass is fucking dynamite.
'Can't destroy you today lads - I'm on seeerious business'
but Cut Glass English.
y'understand, just well spoken.
i have an accent somewhat like that (7 years of enforced private school will do that) but it's a bit messed up as I originally had a scummy Luton accent and since leaving school it now sits somewhere between the two..
to mix it up a little so they sent me to private school AND state school so normal people would think I was posh and posh people would think I was common.
especially foreign ones. I'm not that keen on regional english ones.
the best ones are aussie/kiwi or scandinavian.
Worst one is west coast american
And I have an odd thing for girls who do maths and physics. Especially if they wear glasses.
not the spide ones though. the decent one.
Carolina. I like that one :)
Except scouse really.
It's great when you're at uni in a different bit of the country and randomly talk to someone with the same accent as you.
I am also learning to love doing PJ and Duncan impressions.
make accents a lot better.....there are some accents i cant stand but then when you hear a woman talk with them, and its not strong....just a slight lilt...they turn into really nice accents......i love jayne middlemiss's accent!!
Gotta be Geordie.
i'm foreign and i've got an accent which i never managed to hide. don't think it's very sexy hehe
Lyle? Is he the only Frenchman?
some south walian/cardiff nothings in your ear!
on a serious note i was toying with the idea of elocution lessons. do you think its a good idea. i dont like my accent much and i talk quite slowly when i hear myself on tape.
i wish i had a voice like richard burton
His stage presence.
He did do this, didn't he? Or am I getting confused.
He did MacBeth.. he did LOADS, yar?
Fan of the Manc?
send me a demo... of what you can do... and say...
of whispered flat vowels and glottal stops. You won't know what to do with yourself.
do loads of theatre rose! He had a voice that could melt chocolate....as well as melt the most beautiful woman on the planet at the time (elizabeth taylor)
i should really say i am and then thieve some great saying from an old play to try and impress you....but i am not really
although i did learn a bit about theatre during the scriptwriting course i was on.
but I need to realistically get a lap top first, and this means I need to sort out my job situation (damn damn).
Where did you do yours?
Richard Burton and Liz Taylor are heroines/hero's of mine.. Their life, their love... the glamour, the dramatics.. Cat on a hot tin roof... Cleopatra... Sigh...
He was a total King.
And she, well, she was a reeeeeeeeal fo' sure, Lady Kitten.
i did my vourse in cardiff....it stretched from september to late march and was extremely interesting. I am trying to get some things off the ground but i am revovating my newly aquirred house at the moment so i will really get to work when i move in. I bought some software too (final draft 6)
My friend Teef used it and recommended it. Nice. Well I will send you my work when I've written it, for critique, Mister...!! Like, probably not for another six months... But it will happen..
too.....i have a shed load of scribbled notes but when i have put them together, i will forward it over so you can have a looksey!!!
just the plain old generico southern english accent is quite nice too.
it's like....... fuck.
i do like that too!
christian bale, although born in west wales....considers himself english which is a bummber as he would sit nicely alongside sir anthony hopkins and richard burton as great welsh actors
He made a very nice Batman :oD
do i get points for interthread linkage?
be awarded a gold star for that!
I had a friend who went to a wedding in Toulouse last summer.. in a castle.. it was divine.. saw her pics.. she took our gay best friend as her date, tho, and not me!
cannot say 'Prrrrole' without contorting their face.
END OF THREAD.
are the Aberdeen and Edinburgh ones.
So easy on the ears.
Brooklyn, full on Cockney, and Brazilian best.
not so much on women... well, maybe Brazilian on women.
i generally like any foreign accent on women.
is whisky, maybe he likes drunk women's accents
On a woman I like a Scotch accent. Or even a manc accent like that bird from Emmerdale.
