What ARE your voices like?
« on: 13/06/2007 15:34:57 »
I've just thought - whenever I read anyones thread, I do it in my own voice (I'm not saying I read out loud you understand, just in my head, but my screen IS all smeary from my finger) ( [:0]).

As a result, I forget that Karen and Kadie are in the US, and wonder why they've taken on a rather plummy male English accent.

I don't know where this thread is going - it was just a thought I'd like to share.......

when actors.. or anyone i guess... are being taught an american accent, they try to teach them to sound like they are from northeast ohio. actually, in terms of accent karen and i should be about the same

Well, I am always told I have a quiet voice.. kind of deep , not high pitched at all. am constantly being asked what??? What did you say! LOL Too quiet sometimes especially if I am nervous..LOL Don't get me wrong I can be loud if it calls for it but personally it rarely calls for it. I seldom yell or raise my voice it is pretty rare. The kids at school no the tones change not the volume when I am   expressing concern for them or talking with them about a serious matter such as hitting biting kicking spitting at someones face or trying to use the playground as a bathroom... LOL

Anyway pretty deep between tenor and bass, but sing between tenor and soprano! Does that help.. no accent that I am aware of LOL....

i don't yell either. actually when i get mad i usually get very quiet for a while and then burst into tears. i wish i could yell. people don't understand that you are mad if you are crying. my voice is kind of high pitched. not annoyingly so... but i sang first soprano... i've been told a lot of things about my voice, but the general consensus is that it's very nice.

I have been told I had a deep, throaty, sexy voice LOL I don't think so! LOL LOL..I usually walk away if I am angry go to to my room and get some space.. once in a while I stay and hold my ground as long as I feel I won't say something I regret.. My mum always said "If you can't say nothing nice then don't say nothing at all!" So that is my philosophy mostly anyways. Sometimes that goes out the door as I won't be walked on either.. I speak up! In a louder voice! LOL

I have a southern accent - not that thick hillbilly accent like something out of the movie Deliverance - I prefer to think of it as a southern belle accent.

I have to admit, I do love being a southern girl.....they call us GRITS here (girls raised in the south).  But....I have to endure a lot of good natured teasing about it.  In fact a few of you here have teased me about my accent....you know who you are!

Dr Beaver IIRC your entry in the thread about science background includes the word Cantab so rather than "Refined & Sophisticated", I would have expected "Like a Fenland hick".

I sound as if I've been gargling gravel whilst smoking raw tobacco in an exhaust filled room after having shouted the national anthem with the flu. So, a bit like Hugh Grant.....

Well, I actually have green eyes, but my wife says that they change colour with my mood - apparently, they become more intense when we're hugging (ahem) and more steely when I'm trying to be efficient. I wonder if this is possible? Does blood-flow in the eye change your eye colour. One new topic, coming up!

 I don't know that is a good question.. I have met people with rather blue green eyes that look at times more blue grey or even bluer depending on what color they are wearing!

Yes, so i think that the actual light going into the eyes has an impact on their colour - we'll see what we get from the topic.....
