This post comes to you in AUDIO.A cheap and cheerful blog post today! Off the back of my ‘World of Whorecraft‘ post yesterday, where curious-cat Claire asked what I might sound like saying ‘Get your ass over here, bitch!’, I have decided to deliver the goods.

So, here you go: five different versions! I leave it as an exercise to you, the reader, to decide which accent I actually used in the story.

I know what you’re thinking: ‘any excuse to get that big, bulbous microphone out and impress the ladies, Seb…’ And you’re right. I’m such a narcissist.

Does narcissism even cover the loving of your own voice? I guess it does. Perhaps instead of self-portraits of myself around the world, I could take little audio clips instead… hmm…

(If you can’t see these audio players, you’ll have to visit the blog!)

  • First! A very straight-forward and normal Seb:
  • My (famous?) Deep South hill-billy accent:
  • An accent I’m not really sure about. Common British, with a hint of Australian (?):
    (Really, this one just came out, and decided to keep it. It’s kinda cute?)
  • Cool/City-dwelling American (Black?) accent:
    (Apparently, according to Abi, this one sounds like ‘the old guy with a tooth whistle‘ from Family Guy. I’m not sure how I feel about such comparisons. I was trying to sound young and black, not old and white…)
  • Posh/David Attenborough kind of British accent (again, not sure what this one is really…):

I suppose, under the slightly-veiled guise of ‘research’, I should ask which accent you think I would have most success with…
