    Last night, 12/8/09, AndreNavarro got tired of bashing the brains of poor hookers in and he decided to host an open skype session. Most of the people that were awake on the WC irc channel decided to join. Much fun was had. Hookers were saved. All was well with the world. Andre suggested we do this again soon and so why not have actual Saturday Nigh Open Mics, where we get together and bitch with actual voices.

    It really does seem like the natural evolution of the chat room. So if you're awake on a lonely saturday night, come to the IRC channel and join in on skype... and listen to Andre's sultry voice lull Brazilian escorts into a false sense of security by doing his cover of Brazilian pop hit "Creu".

    Well, it was actually Rootfireember's idea, she just comissioned the tiresome task of getting everyone's asses in Skype to me. And unless my memory lies to me (which is quite possible), the "let's do this again" suggestion was YOURS, you bastard, I just agreed wholeheartedly to it.

    It was very fun. Hookers, however, were only temporarily saved.

    The Whitechapel IRC room, for those who don't know how to access it yet: click here, type in your nickname and, on "channel", type "#whitechapel". UPDATE: I've just been informed there's a new chatroom. There seem to be people there at any given time.

    As Corben said, we're doing this again next Saturday Night. I had fun getting people to pronounce my name correctly, and they had fun laughing at the gaps in my attempt at an American accent (I prefer British, but my tongue and everyone else's ears don't). We discussed everything, from the inevitable nerd subjects to politics. Regardless of subject many laughs were had.

    So, next Saturday night, get a mic and come join us -- or just listen to us talk if you don't have a mic, and use the IM option in Skype to join in via text, as most people did last night.

    So his voice isn't deep and suave and manly and doesn't make panties melt?

    Because that's what I assume he sounds like.

    @dorkmuffin Nope, his voice sounds like a weasel that's dry heaving...while rapping.

    If I can figure out how to get my boyfriend's rock-n-roll vocal mic to work w/ Skype (and whether or not we even still have Skype installed), I'll be there.

    Yeh I was an instigator... I'll admit it. I also don't know how to add people via the skype-on-ipod. :P Last night was a lot of fun. I laughed. I laughed and spit my mt.dew out, because drinking and laughing don't mix. And I never want to hear "Creu" again. haha. Several people talked, several people typed, and much fun was had by all. I'll be up to joining the chat on Saturday post work hell.

    Respectively: no, sometimes, with a little effort, very much so.

    Killing hookers is very tiring, give me a break.

    I already posted this on the blogs once, but... here is "Créu", so everyone can share the misery. This was a funk hit in Brazil. Yes, this is what we call funk in Brazil.



    I am on the verge of swimming to another continent, yes.

    -you know, somewhere I'm cringing in horror.

    @andre & @root I'm not really sure what's worse about that video, the song itself, which sounds like something satan would sing while showering, or the dance which is akin to a man having an epileptic seizure while trying to make love to his real doll which is shorting out.

    also, I propose we have at least a topic to start off the conversation with so we're not really left with awkward pauses. I think the topic should be: Why shonen Jesus is the BEST JESUS.*


    shounen jesus

    *I am being sarcastic. And am looking for an excuse to say "LET'S BIBLE MOTHERFUCKERS!"

    This sounds like an insanely fun time. Now I just have to figure out this Skype business. And stay awake long enough for it to become Saturday Night in the Americas.

    With any luck, I shall inflict my voice upon you, come Saturday.

    Also, I always imagined that Andre's voice sounded like Evil. Not that he sounds evil, you understand, but that his mouth emits the sound of Pure EVIL. And that a well-aimed grunt from the back of his throat would actually stop the hearts of lesser beasts, and possibly babies.

    Hm. Sounds like fun. I may join, if I can figure out what this thing called Skype is. Google, activate!

    (I KNOW what it is, I just haven't used it yet. Shush.)

    oh! yay! With my nifty new laptop, I have a microphone! Aaaaaand I installed Skype already for no apparent reason! You will all be able to enjoy my lovely New Jersey accent (coffee = "kaw-fee")! And at last, you might see that when not typing or self-portrait taking, I am an animated, over-enthusiastic, silly, and wacky human!

    yay!

    (and I'll get to hear all the sexy accents of you foreign-types!)

    Rachael- look forward to seeing --er hearing-- you there!

    Gimme two weeks when the wife is in Japan. I have to hear Andre's voice - my skype id is uncreatively stsparky.

    Hmm sounds fun, though I might listen and mute my mic. I'll probably be painting and i Cuss way too much for polite company when I am working.

  12.  (7392.18)

    Should I decide to put myself out there and join in I want assurances that my accent will not be mocked.

    You can say "Oh, fo sho, you're all set", and it's easy to say until you hear it.
