my friends do this cute thing where they ignore me until they need something, aw love them so much
A tour of the British Isles in accents: for those who would be tempted to mention “A British accent” and leave it at that.
…Smart to remember, too, that all these regions will have microregional variants. The Dublin accent referenced here, for example, is only one of at least five or six that I can identify, and I bet there are a lot more I’ve never heard or can’t tell from one another. Ditto for other regions in Ireland. The “Irish accent” as normally heard in US TV and film until quite recently has never been much more than an overstated, artficial “Dublin Stage” accent.
Equally, what most people in the US think of as “the British accent” beloved of movie villains everywhere is usually the so-called Received Pronunciation or RP, a kind of by-blow of the BBC’s refusal for a long time to allow its announcers to use anything but an approved version of the Home Counties “posh” accent. (This dialectic “glass wall” has finally started cracking in the last decade.)
Artemisia played by Eva Green in 300: Rise of an Empire. More character posters here.
It sucks when I go into the tag “Hannibal” because I see nothing but talk about cannibals and psychopaths when maybe I want to see some posts about the Carthaginian military leader that led over 50,000 soldiers in a journey across the Alps in order to fulfil an oath to his father to destroy Rome
new traffic light color ideas
- purple: turn around and go back
- mega green: like green except greener. it means that you have to double go.
- cyan: apply your turbo boosters and do a cool drift or get arrested by the car law
- black: sucks you into a cyber vortex where you have to do a bonus stage road and collect rings
