pkmn.net's accent challenge game!
« on: July 31, 2014, 20:05 »
After a discussion on IRC i thought it'd be a cool idea to make one of these for here.
If you've never done/heard of an accent challenge you record yourself saying a list of words and answering some random questions.
Obviously if you're not comfortable doing this then don't, it can be a little weird recording yourself! If not you can listen to how everyone else sounds and laugh at us.
You can make a youtube video of yourself or use http://vocaroo.com/. I used my phones voice recorder but you can use your computers/laptops mic too. Whatever is easiest.

The list of words:
Quote
Pokemon, Pikachu, Aunt, Roof, Route, Theater, Iron, Salmon, Anime, Caramel, Fire, Water, New Orleans, Pecan, Flabébé, Both, Again, Probably, Alabama, Lawyer, Coupon, Rattata, Mayonnaise, Pajamas, Caught, Naturally, Aluminium, GIF, PKMN.NET, Doorknob, Envelope.
(fyi for those of you who haven't played/cared about gen 6 flabebe is a pokemon)

The questions:
Quote
What is your name and username?
Where are you from?
What is it called when you throw toilet paper on a house?
What is a bubbly carbonated drink called?
What do you call gym shoes?
What do you call your grandparents?
What do you call the wheeled contraption in which you carry groceries at the supermarket?
What is the thing you change the TV channel with?
Choose a book and read a passage from it.
Do you think you have an accent?
Would you rather be a wizard or a vampire?
What Pokemon would you own irl?
End this audio post by saying any THREE words you want.

It's up to you if you want to do the questions or words first.

So yeah thought this would be a fun little thing to do so we can all hear what we sound like lmao.

When it comes down to it, the difference between healing and necromancy is timing.

ayooo none of these words questions really made me say anything that sounded really good in my south yorkshire-ish accent so i'm sorry that i just sound like a boring posh brit instead but tbf i don't think my accent is very thick anyway.

It sounds quite soft on recordings, actually.

idk if this is weird but you all have really nice voices. Mine is usually something resembling a mountain troll but I was being quiet so no one thought i was going mental or anything

Hahaha I'm so glad I'm not the only one who got confused by the "toilet paper on a house" question! This is so cool to listen to, it's somehow so much more personal than just reading what people are saying ^__^ I'll do mine tomorrow, since if I started recording myself now the family would think I was going quite mad.

Also Bad Wolf, as soon as you said "ere you go, 'ave that" your Yorkshireishness shone through there ;P

I haven't listened to this myself yet because there would be no chance of it going up if I checked it xD

Everyone has quite nice voices, especially dragoncat haha, that prolly came off creepier than it was meant xD

hello please tell me if the quality is okay ty

i might come back and do the book part another time when i think i'll have more time to do it but that time is not now
My mom bought me this new laptop and it gets really hot when the chat is being spammed. Now my leg is starting to hurt because it is getting so hot. Please, if you don't want me to get burned, then don't spam the chat.
