It's been about a year since the last one I believe, so why not bring this back for a 2013 edition? So to quote Ozzy quoting Harlequin:

Quote originally posted by Harlequin:
What do you sound like when you say certain words? Want everyone on PC to know how you sound? No? Too bad! If you have a microphone, click this super special link, do the accent challenge in the spoiler below and POST IT.
So if you have a mic, go to the link above (or use a method of your choosing), and record yourself doing the following! And I'll do it when it's not 2 AM

Spoiler:
Record a message with the following criteria:


-Your name and username.

- Where you’re from.

- Pronounce the following words: Aunt, Roof, Route, Theater, Iron, Salmon, Caramel, Fire, Water, New Orleans, Pecan, Both, Again, Probably, Alabama, Lawyer, Coupon, Mayonnaise, Pajamas, Caught, Naturally, Aluminium, GIF, Tumblr, Crackerjack, Doorknob, Envelope, GPOY.

- 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?

- Be you a pirate or a witch?

- Do you know anyone on PC in real life?

- If you want to, sing a verse of your favorite song

- End audio post by saying any THREE words you want

Kay so, I'll do this challenge just for the heck of it I'll post the recording whenever I'll do it.

Okay, so if your ears burst then I am terribly sorry!

It's uploaded to SoundCloud; recording was done on my phone's voice recorder

I apologize for the quality and background noise! >.<!

It's almost two in the morning, so I'm sorry if I don't sound very enthusiastic about this. I'm really tired but I don't want to sleep yet. :P

I'm not a big not a big fan of my voice , but why not.
http://vocaroo.com/i/s1I9yHn3TZNp
Here enjoy my screw-ups. For example ,when I said I was two when my grandpa died, I meant 3. I'm too lazy to re-record it. ¯\(°_o)/¯

Edit: Also Nica your accent/voice is really cute.Just saying.

This is a better version of my recording. I actually didn't stumble all over my words here when reading the book.
There may be some foul language in the recording, by the way. Just a hearer discretion.

So I figured out why my mic was so bad...the threshold for recording was set really low so everything was extremely loud. I fixed it now and I decided to do the challenge. Just because I love you all so much. ♥

Also I'm not at my dorm right now and it's less awkward doing it when I'm completely alone than with a bunch of people around.

http://vocaroo.com/i/s16LxZ7zP0hq

Ok fine, here I am singing Little Things. You can hear it playing in the background all warped and stuff. I dislike my singing voice because I feel it's really plain, but as far as I'm concerned I'm on pitch most of the time.

Lapras and Ozzy you have the best accents ever. X)
Yeah, not sure if I'll end up doing this. If you guys really want, I'll do it, but otherwise its just not worth it. My voice is so terrible and high and prone to cracking. >.< yay puberty
