Yes! Do you remember that "post our voice samples" thread? I still keep Dave's voice on my computer. A little stalkerish, I know but it's so cute!

Great thread, by the way.

I also love the way English people say "lovely". Don't forget to say lovely while recording people.

I'll record some tomorrow evening, what do you want me to say?
I'm from south-east England, so a kind of neutral, slightly southern atmosphere.

I know, Stevie. I know. For you, if you wish, (if you don't so much the worse) it'll be: "why, aye, mate, just going down the chippie! what's the matter, can't you wait till I'm back, you damn scrofulous teabag...?" then you can improvise.

Idiot, I'm really stuck for you... hmm... you can say the same as Steve... add sth about the horseraces being jolly good, & going to the club every saturday morning when it's raining even better. then ad-lib some more, be imaginative & above all, English.

talk about the weather if nothing else.

Mine will sound more like this....why aye mate, just ganin doon tha chippy, was tha matta like?, ya not wait till as back.

No one in geordie land would say the last part, it would be more like, 'ya bloody fool'

ofcourse many british people have accents. Just like a whole damn lot of dutchies have accents when they speak dutch. Only few british have no accent (and granted, not a single foreigner lacks an accent)

Ok, I've done some. Bit dodgy though as it feels weird randomly talking to a computer screen and thinking about how you're saying stuff.

Explanations

Boring Southern Accent - How 'commoners' here in the South East talk
Brummy Accent - My poor attempt at sounding like someone from Birmingham. Does sound better in real life though.
Normal Accent - Just me talking normally as I would
Scouse Accent - Attempt of sounding like people from Liverpool
Southern Farmer Accent - What farmers from the south sound like. Almost sounds Irish.
Southern Scum Accent - What really common, usually older generation common, town centre type people sound like.

I know!! of someone asked you to do a welsh accent its near impossible, but to just blurt out randomly its a really accurate and funny impersonation.


Do a Leeds/Bradford style one.

For a Scottish accent, you just sound really dopey & roll your r's.

Quebecker accents are indeed the pits. No offence. i mean, objectively, they're not beautiful, are they? Subjectively you may have some liking for reason X or Y, but objectively...

Thanks Steve, brilliant translation job. I get the farmer accent alright now. It's just really slow & really... inimitable. *grins*

Okay you want a cookie or a French rendition?

Subjectively you may have some liking for reason X or Y, but objectively...I don't think it's that bad. Of course, if you only ever heard farmers talking, then I understand you might think it's not beautiful at all. I understand, I don't like that either. I even have a neighbour who says "gardrie" instead of "galerie"... ew. Also, it's not every Quebecer who speaks with a really strong accent and/or swear every 3 words.

Scottish accents, Scottish accents! Yay. :D

Is this supposed to be a bad thing? Because I think having an accent (whether it is nice or not) is fucking cool. I for one, love my middle eastern accent although everyone seems to hate it.

Take the following assumptions I make :

For most relatively uninformed people, "Middle Eastern" = "exotic" = "cool";

For the same proportion of the population, "Quebecker" = "logcabin-dwelling beaver owner" = "lousy".

Do you see my point now ?

Val&#233;rie!!! C'est super de t'entendre! Here's my oh so french response: And let nobody say: was that English? Or gibberish? (http://www.savefile.com/files/210213)"&#231;a tu y &#233;chapperas pas" hahaha. oh nooon.

Et ouais, j'ai dis intense. En fait, t'as raison, j'aurais du dire prononc&#233;, mais bon... j'me suis mise a dire des mots qui ont pas de sens on dirait. Nan, mais j'imagine &#231;a peut peut-&#234;tre fonctionner.

Vers 1:01 "j'ai pas envie de faire encore un clip comme _____?" C'est quoi t'as dis? Je l'ai &#233;couter 10 fois sans comprendre, haha.

Et oui, je suis une vieille dame! :p

edit : pour les anglicismes, tu as d&#233;j&#224; entendu &#231;a :
"Les Fran&#231;ais disent : stationner une voiture dans un parking.
Les Qu&#233;b&#233;cois disent : Parker une voiture dans un stationnement."?
Enfin c'est quelque chose comme &#231;a.

Matmatah - Les Moutons


Refrain:
Nanala Naganalalo Lanalalaleno.

On a tondu les moutons , et filé la laine
Et réparé la moto avec la clef allen
On a rencontré des filles pas du tout vilaines
Avec elles il y avait la Marie ranouen
On a respiré du tri du trichloroéthylène
Et le lendemain on avait mauvaise haleine

{Refrain}

Y a trois francs de réduction sur les chocos BN
Alors pour en profiter on les prend par douzaines
On s'est envoyé une bonne bouteille de chouchen
A la fin elle était vide elle était plus pleine
Après on a fait du stop avec les bigoudènes
Et on est allé en boîte mais y avait qu'des lesbiennes

{Refrain}

On a jeté tous les parisiens dedans la Seine
On a noyé en même temps toutes les parisiennes
On a trouvé du pétrole aux îles Kerguelen
Et après on est parti pécho la sirène
Ah y'en a un qu'j'oublie toujours oh c'est Saddam Hussein
Celui-là nous pompe de l'air comme Jean-Marie Le Pen
On s'est roulé un cinq feuilles avec du pollen
Et après on est tous tombés dans le lagen

{Refrain}

Si notre chanson vous a plu oh donnez-vous la peine
De nous payer un bon coup pour reprendre haleine
Je n'me souviens plus de la suite alors c'est pas la peine
De toute façon ce qu'il fallait c'était une rime en "N"

At least I amuse myself. I realize it's off topic, but this amuses me, and if I was equipped to do a recording in French (or English, for that matter), this is the one I would do.

Points to anyone who guesses the origin of this band.

This thread got me thinking. Does anyone have a Ventrilo (http://www.ventrilo.com) server? It'd be kind of fucking rad to talk to BBSers over Vent or something of the like. Anyway, just a thought as I don't have my own server and I'm not all that familiar with the actual moderation of the program (even though I've used it on an almost daily basis since like January).

post script - Yes, I am a fag and only know about the program because I use it when I'm playing World of Warcraft.
