Voice 48 – Russell Means

Ack, okay, lets ignore his advocacy of veganism and mineral water as a treatment for cancer, because I can’t even. He has a nice voice.

Thanks to Anish for the suggestion.

Voice 47 – the man with the haptic pen

This video goes up in tribute to my pal who started talking about haptics when I told him about my thing with voices, and made me feel profound, as opposed to compulsive and peculiar, by saying I was responding to the texture of sound in a stronger way than other people. Well, aren’t I a sensual mofo.

Besides that, this pen is just cool. Although it’s funny that they’re trying so hard to recreate the click of a camera shutter button for digital cameras and touchscreens, given that in a few years no one will even remember what it’s like to use a real shutter button. Then people will moan about how inauthentic all this clicking stuff is and how it just doesn’t feel right and they miss when all you got when you touched the screen was the faint sensation of static. Ah, the good old days.


Now pass the jump for an unbelievably creepy video about a jacket that allows you to cuddle yourself, which is not remotely soothing. More

Voice 43 – Guy talking about Hertz

I don’t think I could put this any more eloquently than Giles Hardisty, who emailed me this video:

“I had to watch it for homework and I was like woooah.”

Voice 32 – mausolfb

I love videogames, and the minimal intonation of the narrator is bettered only by my minimal understanding of what he’s talking about. But then emotional passivity and incomprehension are things I always find very soothing. Enjoy.

Voice 31 – CERN scientist guy

Yeah I don’t know what his name is. Nice voice though.

Voice 10 – David Attenborough

Yep, it’s the soother extraordinaire himself. Rest assured, you will be seeing more from him, but for now, this one is about squirrels.

Voice 7 – Carl Sagan

One of my housemates (we’ll call him “Aaaahhhh”) describes Sagan’s voice as “a very soothing voice, with a hint of kermit the frog”. Well, I’ll agree with the second part *raspberry*. Nonetheless, here it is.
