voice progress

Little by little, I've been making progress on developing a female voice.

My every day voice still sounds pretty masculine, but it's starting to sound a bit androgynous. And occasionally, while practicing by myself at home, I feel like I can get a voice that could potentially pass as female. It would have to be a fairly weird kind of female, I think. Not sure.

Anyway, here's the best I've come up with so far...

A Thing for Nerds (by D.M. Larson)

Obviously, still needs a lot of work... but I think it's noticeably better than where I was in early July, when I linked to my first few voice samples.

So......Siena

 We went back to the hotel we have used to many times before- the Arcobaleno (rainbow).

We were on the other side of the 'L' this time so got a view of the rather nice 19th century yellow villa across the road:

In the interest of Being Excellent and considerate of those who plan to watch this episode, all references to the content of this episode are stashed under the cut and will remain so hidden for at least a month. Someponies like to watch MLP:FIM in herds and it can be a while before they get all their ponies together. 8^) As spoilers are also likely to be in any comments: don't read if you haven't yet seen the episode unless you like being spoiled. When you're ready, drop in a comment and say what you thought of this episode!

After a month, I hope Episode Discuss posts will be so far off the top page that it'll probably take the tag to find them, so about a month after posting the cut will be removed. 8^) Sometimes I go back and drop in little extras into the posts, like comics and links to the music.

Broadcast starts at 11:30 am Eastern Daylight Savings Time, which should work out to 4:30 pm UTC, 8:30 am PST and maybe about 11:30 PM Down Under. Confused? Look at the PonyCountdown widget on the community page! At the moment there are just 5 hours left to go.

Written by Sammie Crowley and Whitney Wetta (I think, it was hard to read).

For those of you following Twitter, you can follow writers Nick Confalone (Hearthbreakers), Mike and Will Fox (The Gift of the Maud Pie), Joanna and Kristine (Gauntlet of Fire), Dave Polsky (Rarity Takes Manehattan) and Jennifer Skelly (Buckball Season). Other twits in the early morning chorus may include the likes of Meghan McCarthy, Jayson Thiessen (Supervising Director of MLP:FIM), Andrea Libman , the voice of Dragon Lord Ember Ali Milner, Big Jim (storyboard work, voice of Troubleshoes and Director of MLP:FIM), Mike Vogel and Josh Haber. The hashtag to watch should be #MLPseason7.

Sienese posters

 I have a liking for posters wherever I go in the world and on our first day in Siena as we walked into town, I knew of a place where there would be some nice ones.

I wasn't disappointed!

One for a transport show:




And one for a donkey palio (yes, really :o) Such a beautifully captured image of one of my favourite creatures:



And general posterage:



That's all I have time for as we're now in the process of getting the new attic room as we want it, but there'll be more later, I promise! I took two hundred odd shots!

Watch It Isn't the Mane Thing About You on DailyMotion in 1080p here. It appears that DailyMotion has a new look. It also failed twice while I was watching it. At least I was able to go back to where I'd left off after refreshing the page.

MLPMovie_in_Germany

If you want to catch the MLP Movie in theatres in Germany in English, you have one chance, two days before it gets released in the US. Here's the deal, on October 4th, the following movie houses will have a "Brony showing" of the movie at 20:00 CEST:


Colloseum (BERLIN)
Othmarschen Park (HAMBURG)
Ruhr Park (BOCHUM)
Hürth Park (KÖLN)

The Kinowelt chain of movie houses is making two of these preview events. The first, at 2:30 in the afternoon on October 1st, is for a German dub of the film. There are details here, and it looks like admission includes a poster, gratis, for "jeden Besucher" (there's one born every minute!). Buy your tickets online. Do it now, the October 4th screening will be the only one for the English version in Germany. Schnell! Schnell!

If you're a UK rabbit, you're going to have to wait until October 20th.
