Well, I've listened to all the voices posted up to now and I must say they all are intriguing. It always fascinates me how different people sound from one another (I suppose it's the vocalist in me).

As for me, I don't have a microphone at the moment, so I'm afraid there won't be a Brainiac clip. However, if you really want to hear my voice, I recommend you find a download/copy of a song performed by The Ohio State University Men's Glee Club from within the last three years. Granted, my voice is mixed with about a hundred others, but hey, it's there! :lol

Was that blatant plug a little much? ;)

While I wait for Charlemagne to host my clip (thanks again, Charles), I just wanted to share something about Indian accents, since we seem to be on that topic.
I recently read the book Life of Pi by Yann Martel (strangely enough it says on the page of Ron Gilbert that he is reading it at the moment too), which is about a multireligious Indian boy, whose father is a zookeeper. If you check the site out you can see the excerpt that I will write below, as well as one very psychotic interactive promo of the book. The style of the book was very intriguing, with a great, subtle sense of humor. I could almost hear the voices of the Indians, with their accents. So, enough blabbing, here is the quote from the author's note, hope you enjoy it:

Quote:
On that first trip I had come to the subcontinent completely unprepared. Actually, I had a preparation of one word. When I told a friend who knew the country [India] well of my travel plans, he said casually, "They speak a funny English in India. They like words like bamboozle."
I remembered his words as my plane started its descent towards Delhi, so the word bamboozle was my one preparation for the rich, noisy, functioning madness of India. I used the word on one occasion, and truth be told, it served me well. To a clerk at a train station I said, "I didn't think the fare would be so expensive. You're not trying to bamboozle me, are you?" He smiled and chanted, "No sir! There is no bamboozlement here. I have quoted you the correct fare."

Well, my turn for a voice clip!
I quoted an excerpt from a song in Spanish, just because I like the language the most (and especially the RRrrrrr :p).
My voice actually sounds somehow quite different when I speak in different languages.

this has been fun! i've finally been able to listen to all the voices - i was housesitting and i couldn't get them to play there, and then i was visitng a friend.

Fribbi - the scary one - i played it right as my kitty was sitting next to the speakers. all i have to say is, you're paying the pet therapist bills. :P

Erpy - Thanks for pronouncing your name! woo! now i got it!

I was half expecting someone to rib me about my Southern drawl...it kinda came out in my voice post.

Sorry it's in OGG, but I recorded it in WAV and it was a meg and a half, and the only converter program I have is WAV to OGG, so that's what happened. If anyone wants to convert it to mp3 for me and post it up, I'd be uber-grateful. :D

You have the coolest voice when reading Spanish man! I can't roll my 'R's worth a damn! That's cool.

You should definitely do some voiceover work in a game sometime!!!

Kurdt, yours made me crack up - though you don't have that much of a Southern Drawl - "Are you having FUN out there? I know I AM!"

Mike, I love the Gulliver's Travels - nice reading!

HOLY CRAP! I listened to Erpy for like 4 minutes (same clip 60 times as it was 4 seconds long) just trying to get his name. so far i got stained apple. Am I close? I just natturally assumed Erpy would sound like Nash on the playstation which I know is dumb but I read in voices so there ya go. It's hard to implement with short clips like this but it's a good challenge and whever Bt is posting drunk or just being stupid SCOTISH ACCENTS ALL THE WAY!

Heh, thanks. Although, I said, "I HOPE you're having fun out there, cuz I know I am." :p What really gets me is how I say the name of the town my university's in. "San MarkOs, Texiz." Then again, most of the time we pronounce it as "San Marcus," but I decided to anunciate for the sake of others.

Now, get me around my family and I might as well be in an episode of Gunsmoke or something. It's ridiculous. I went to New York a couple of weeks ago and was quite surprised that nobody noticed or aknowledged that I was from the South. I sure as hell knew where I was, though. No manners anywhere, but then again people are more honest about what they think (even though most think badly) and aren't afraid to use sarcasm in any situation. You don't get that down here. That's uncouth and you could get shot, or at least in a fight. People still tell you what they think, but they're more mannerly about it.
