I love Russian accents! So sultry and captivating. I used to have a friend who emigrated to America from near Novosibirsk. I could listen to her talk for hours and thought it was amazing. I miss her!

Like a real Irish accent versus the portrayal of that leprechaun who sells cereal.

P.S I want home...

LOL I just saw this! I have a friend from Staten Island and that is EXACTLY how she talks to people! Everyone here thinks she's rude and vulgar, but they don't understand, where she comes from it's not taken seriously, it's joking/friendly.

It probably isn't hard to find a native speaker, Hollywood wants everything to fit in with their delusions.

Why can't Hollywood find a real southern US accent? And why is the fate of the world always set in LA?(The lamest, most boring, US city, that might also have the lowest, overall, IQ on the planet.)

Originally Posted By: SpinnerofDetroitCJ, everyone has an accent. Just hat you have an accents that is native to where you live so it's not noticed

I think CJ was saying he has the more homogeneous North American accent.

Posted:I have been told while travelling that I am accentless. I know this to be false. I speak with a really watered down "Fargo" accent, with some deep Louisianan/Creole in there too (though that comes out rarely).

I found out yesterday, that I get to perform a mime routine at at Project Earth!

Problem is, I have a month to put together and learn my routine, re-develop my character, and re-costume myself.

This will be my first on-stage performance as a mime. Wish me luck!

Posted:Different from regular lamp oil? ultra-pure has minimal impurities the one I got is 99.7% minimum of pure paraffin wax oil. Regular has additives and gives off more fumes and residue.

Clean up was a snap FINALLY!!! tongue2 , my apartment doesn't stink, it lit better and had a more even flame than K-1, it wasn't all raging loud and shooting fumes upon lighting, it was easier to obtain and store than K-1 and a little went a long way.

An apartment resident's dream! I really hate stinking up the hallways too, don't want to disturb/freak out the neighbors more than I need to!!! grin

Posted:Yesterday was a good day.

Came second place in Stage Challenge Regionals, possible wildcard to nationals. Won an award for excellence for my soundtrack... Saw 150 people wearing the hot pink t-shirts that I designed. Did some last minute camera work for nationwide television. Cleaned up some other awards. Crashed the Deputy Principals house at 12.30am for tea and coffee. Made a bunch of new friends... and had a crapload of fun. grin
