I discovered this way cool free program (SpecLab) on my quest to find an easy way for my first-years to plot the data from their VLF receiver. They don’t even have to build an analogue filter because there are so many options built into this way cool, and did I mention free?, program. Not the least significant of the filters is the one that removes the huge 50 Hz (plus harmonics) interference from mains power. Anyway, it provided a nicely geeky excuse for me to share both audio files and spectrograms of me saying the following: “Awesome,” and “Don’t ask me. I’m just a rocket scientist.”
AwesomeDon’t ask me…


ETA: HOLY CRAP. My accent is really mutant now.

My accent seems to switch back and forth entirely rather than mutating. Or maybe I just don't record myself enough.

Also: [mad scientist laugh] Now all I need is two buttons and a pull cord and my talking Nanila doll will be complete!

*tug*

Awesome!

*tug*

Awesome!

Don't ask me, I'm just a rocket scientist!

Gay pirates, yay!

It should have a little screen in its tummy that flashes appropriate macros.

Like so!

That brings up an interesting point - do British pirates actually go around going "Ahhhhh?"

I had the same reaction when I listened to the recording. Except it was more like, "Jesus Christ, I talk like a Canadian or something." ;-D

RE: ETA

Hey- at least cabbies aren't accusing you of being Canadian.

Oh, wait a sec- that's a good thing these days.

woo. please don't hesitate to do more voice posts in future. :) i don't think your accent is all that mutant really, but it is definitely mutating a bit.* which i, for one, think is a good thing. :)
_______________________________________________
* as i hadn't heard your voice before, i am basing this statement on my assumption of how you sounded before.

*grinning* Love this. Every last bit. Including the faaahhhh... I caught a snippet of Tomb Raider last week-end & listening to you immediately made me think of Laura Croft, so. Good? Bad?
