Topic: Vic Jameson

It's okay, I've cheered up now and stopped ranting. I'm very very very busy procrastinating today. So I've read just about every blog on the sidebar.

Which leads me to a bit of an advert for audio-blogs.
If you've never heard me ooohing and ahhhing the comments about Kat's voice, you should listen to this. I love listening to blogger's voices - somehow it makes them seem farther away to be smacked in the face with their foreign accents.

And criminy, do they sound foreign. You forget how the internet disguises and homogenises our differences. And how the blogs you read are written by real, cute, complex, demanding people.

I mean, who knew Bitter Little Man would talk like he writes? Or that Fridge Magnet sounds quite normal, really, despite the predilection for penguins? Or that Ryan's voice is as cute as his photos?
The Hard Artist's audio posts are legendary in my single occupancy basement flat in Penge. Mind you, if you want a sheer testosterone injection, no-one can beat the Grand Ennui. He sounds like I imagine Jack Nicholson kisses. Or Beaker. One of those guys. But enough about my strange predilection for mature men.

Sigh. I love audio posts. I have to make do with my imagination for all the northern lesbian bloggers out there, although I have spoken to lemonpillows by phone (conversation ran along the lines of: "tee hee, you have an accent, tee hee hee", but I blame the champagne.)
As per usual, I've fantasised wildly about what Eurotrash and SarahSpace's accents are like. If I had decent blog software, I could do one. As it is, if you have a broadband connection, because it's huge, you'll be forced to make do with a crappy video of me wandering round the house talking to myself.
I sound dead common, me. Like a fishwife. Nothing like a Sarf East Lahndaner. Honest.

God, what a ramble this post turned into. I apologise for the dreadful quality of posts over the last week while I've been procrastinating wildly.
Here, have some quality. Here's a line that made me think found on Alyssa's site:

Epicurus posed this question of religion two thousand years ago: If God is willing to prevent evil but cannot, he is not omnipotent. If able but not willing, he is malevolent. If neither able nor willing to prevent evil "then why call him God?"

I just nicked this neat little Epicurian utterance for my blog, Vanessa. But I linked back so hopefully my small but perfectly formed readership will come over & check you out.

only i have slowed it down by three.
keeping the voiceover the same.

It took three viewings before I realised that I was mistaken in believing that you'd named your laptop 'Cyril'! Excellent. :)

Oooooh - another chance to stalk Vanessa!! (as I seem to have scared her off the other night on msn by talking incessantly about absolute bollocks - I was tired - high on caffeine and nicotine - that's my excuse anyway)

Will download the video right now and add it to my favourites!

I'll have to take everyone's word on the video - dialup doesn't blow MUCH!

I might have a go at that Voice Blog lark though.

I popped by for a visit and got a little surprise - thanks for the little advertisement. I like an audio post sometimes myself.

Now your voice is wonderful! Your apartment may be a little small but it looks very nice. I especially like the kitchen and consider this my card of congratulations on your new place. I have no idea how you can hang it on your window, though.

I think you sound like one of those evil wicked posh girls that everyone wants to know but is secretly afraid of. Lovely ;-)
