    sleestak, your smarmy wink was quite alright, don't worry. Allow me to make you feel better about it with this terrible video I'm going to post next.

    alright, ignore my horrible facial expressions I'm making here, but there's really not much you can do while trying to read Atlanta Nights in a serious manner. Background audio suggested and made by my boyfriend (ooooh dramatic piano). This book is so wrong.

    Warning, this video is weird. Like....really weird.

    You are all mad.

    That being said, SPIT: Video Edition is one of the better things I have witnessed in recent weeks.

    I love you all.

    @Argos - Thanks for trying to allay my fears of over-smarm. I loved your reading of that book though. Hilarious stuff. Brilliant piano music suggestion by the bf.

    @oda: "Standard self shot in mirror, just like the 16-year-olds do it!"

    Not really. You're not close to an open toilet! (thankfully)

    @ Argos - your speaking voice is similar to that of Amanda Palmer's I think.

    You think? There's an old video of Amanda and Brian during practice and she said something in such a way that I thought she sounded like me, but I wasn't sure if that was just me hearing things.

    I'm loving the video SPITs, it's quite entertaining.

    OH GOD I'VE INSPIRED PEOPLE

    ...and I'm not a fan of my voice so I probably won't say anything. I think I sound weird.

    @Argos, thanks, man. When I see good light it forces me into action, even if it is in a concrete bathroom open to the sky in a remote village in South Thailand. I am also digging the videos, makes me wish I had a 5DmkII so I could do long portraits. For now, gonna hafta settle for stills. Keep 'em coming people!

    @oldhat: I think most people think the sound of their own voices is weird.

    @oddbill - I'm from Buffalo, and I can assure you that Western New York has no accent. As it happens, we are the "default" English speaking voice, and everyone else is a variation on us. Crazy, right?

    @SteadyUp - Of course. I was just being polite - didn't want all these funny-sounding people to be ashamed of their accents once they heard the fundamental purity of my elocution.

    I was a North Tonawandan for 18 years, and a Buffalonian for 6 after that before moving to the West Coast. Whereabout Buffalo are you from?

    Also, this is my new wall:

    @taphead
    Ha ha. Great to hear you speak, sir. And a chef to boot.
    A Swedish acquaintance always claims that Finns "talk like Star Wars"...to which I retort "And, what's wrong with that!?"
