    2. i am quite aware that i have a hearing disability that requires visual cues of the speaker in order to really hear what a speaker is saying (which makes deep telephone conversations problematic not because of a voice's loudness but its the intelligibility of the words themselves) however, you have a very beautiful voice, something I guess, I've never noticed because my limbic system is so visually oriented... of course, it could be the timbre of your voice talking about falling in love... i'll have to go back to your vlog and close my eyes.

      Delete
    3. LOF: You know you've got me thinking about my own voice. It's perfectly normal for people to change pitch, pace, pronunciation and sometimes even accent when talking to specific groups of people. I reckon this is the voice I use when I'm amongst friends. My vlog voice is for strangers. That sounded a little too low for every day use. haha

      In short, ang beki ng voice ko! haha

      Delete
    4. yes, you had a cold in your vlog and you may have butched it up a little... but i stand by my statements after reviewing all of the evidence.

      Delete
    5. LOF: You're commenting in lawyer-speak. haha

      I'm still stuck on you saying i "have a very beautiful voice." Regardless if this version of me is super beki or if my vlog's a little butch, i still can't shake the image of you putting a pretty pink ribbon on my vocal cords. haha

      Delete
    6. sorry. too much impeachment trial, i think. anyways, i thought the award-winning ribbon was blue, or are you back-handing me something? lol

      Delete
    7. LOF: I was hoping it would be pink! Blue makes me feel like a prize turkey or something. haha

      And it was not back-handing you, I swear! haha for stuff like that, I message you on Facebook! haha

      Delete
    8. I think pink has traditionally been fifth or sixth place and also now has something to do with breast cancer awareness i think. anyways, i won't get into a big explication or anything, but it wasn't until i was required to block the visual cues did the pitch, timbre and phasing of your natural voice come out. very beautiful!

      Delete
    9. LOF: I got it! What about a tiara instead! Most beautiful vocal chords in the universe. Chauce!!!

      I've never really recieved feedback about my voice although I had a caller from Memphis once who told me I sounded like a sexy goat. He was pretty upset when he said that so maybe it doesn't count. Haha

      Delete
    10. LOF: in everybody's free to wear sunscreen, the guy says we must remember the compliments and forget the criticisms. I'm totally dropping "goat" and fixating on "sexy" hihi

    2. Nyl, it's not the pitch, kahit one octave higher pa yan, it's the "love." It's heartfelt. Me kilig factor.

      And it's not coz u look like my ex that I wanna cuddle you. It's because of your own charisma, or shall I say, your 'magic'

  9. Sweet! Actually, this brought a little lump to my throat. And naw, you don't sound gay, buy where did you get that mid-west American accent??? :)

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Rick: I didn't realize it was particularly midwestern. haha i've been in the contact center industry since 2007 and I spent 3 of those years as a voice and accent trainer. :p

      Delete
    2. Well, the first time I went to university I was in radio/tv broadcasting and they taught us to loose the Texas accent. The "radio" accent was commonly called mid-west since that general region is not as identifiable as other regions. Then I was overseas in Asia for a decade and around nothing but British, and my family and friends back home said I had a slight British accent. (No, Madonna, I DIDN'T fake it like you have) Now after a long time back in the US people here in NY detect a slight southern lilt, while my family and folks back in Texas think I'm a "damn Yankee." Oh well...

      Delete
    3. Rick: How interesting! You know, in all my years as a comms trainer, no one's ever really told me how I sounded like. In the Philippines, they just say I speak maarte which loosely translates to a high maintenance valley girl-ish tone. Not that I'm at all like that. haha

      Did you spend time in India? I'm from Asia and no one here speaks with any British influence unless they've been watching too much british TV. there is a particularly interesting video of Lea Salonga when she was working on Miss Saigon and she had a pronounced brit twang. It sounded funny but she was totally sold to the idea, not unlike Madonna around the time she was married to Guy Ritchie. haha

      Accents are such curious things. Makes me wonder what my real accent would've been like had I not been in this industry. haha I can only guess, of course but I doubt if I would've had any schwas.

      Delete
    4. Absolutely not valley girl. That horrible "accent" ends every statement as if asking a question (similar to Canadian accents) and that's SOOOO irritating! Your voice and accent are quite non-descript by my standards, and very pleasant to listen to. (not saying that just to be nice! ;P)

      No, I've only visited India once, but lived in Singapore for nearly 10 years and worked/played all over SEA, including the Philippines. My employer at the time, Halliburton, had an office in Makati and I worked in Palawan a on a couple of jobs. Want to visit Philippines again in the next couple of years.

      You know, I saw a video of Lea Salonga auditioning for that role I think....was very interesting, but I don't recall the accent.

      As for Texas accents, there are actually several distinct regional ones within the state. What many think of as a Texas accent is actually heard in surrounding areas of New Mexico, Oklahoma, Kansas, Arkansas, Louisiana, and the southern tip of Missouri. But once you move out of western Arkansas and Louisiana, the southern accent begins to change, sometimes dramatically.

      Delete
    5. Rick: I know what you mean! When I was training people to neutralize their accents, they always equated proper english to rising intonation. It was super annoying!

      And I remember you talking about working for Halliburton. I didn't know you worked in Palawan. I've always wanted to visit but I could never find the resources to.

      This may be a little dorky but have you ever visited the International Dialects of English Archives? The US accents are documented really well there. IMHO, they don't do the Filipino accent justice, especially now that the linguistic landscape of the average Filipino has drastically changed thanks to the advent of the call center industry.

    6. No, haven't.... That would be very interesting to me. I'll check it out tomorrow or this weekend! Thanks for the tip!

    7. Rick: It's over at http://web.ku.edu/~idea/. I've spent many hours there trolling their archives. We often use the recordings to familiarize trainees with how you Americans speak. :p

  10. I don't know if it was in the previous year when we watched this (Never Let Me Go), but man I cried so hard in the movie house. My friends and I, we are all crying. I thought for a while I would be listening to Andrew Garfield and Carey Mulligan.
    .
    .
    Anyway, stories about love (or love stories) fascinates me, like yours, whether sad or happy (of course that depends on the point of view of the storyteller). This audio post of yours reminds me of Joan Didion's "We Tell Ourselves Stories in Order to Live." I can't provide a more decent take on your story. I never had those moments. I never really saw people.

      As for the decoded script, I don't have one. I had a few scribbles on my notebook. It was a basic outline of what I wanted to say pero di ko siya finull script. The squares above are based on this work report na nireplace ko all characters with the box. then I manually added the letters and the numbers (in fact if you were here when I first published the post, wala pa yung kemeng yun haha)
