Voice 53 – Courtney B. Vance

Good God. This voice is a thing of beauty.

Thanks Maurice for the rec.

 

Now as Maurice said he had trouble finding a video where ole Courtney was all on his lonesome, I decided I’d give the only video he could find top billing in tribute to his effort. But if you click on the More tab, you will be able to watch another video of this guy, that possibly qualifies as my absolute favourite soothing voice video in a very long time, possibly ever.

Voice 41 – Isabelle Adjani

Obvo, she’s French innit?

Check her out in La Reine Margot and Camille Claudel if you haven’t already. Clips from both if you read on.  More

Voice 38 – David Heyman, and I’m a dickhead

Oh dear, having just checked my inbox I am super sorry to the people who’ve sent me email suggestions that I’ve ignored and my general lack of updatonage. I really never expect people to be as interested in my bizarre soothe habit as they are. And for some strange reason this only makes me more concerned for the sanity of me.

However, I’ve now cycled through my biannual foodie and videogame phase (I categorise life themes different from other people) and I’m back on soothy. Also Joss Whedon as other cracked fans (I see us as the victims) may have gleaned from the -age and the -y. Just watched all seven seasons of Buffy in a row in just over a week. Which was great, even if its fatal flaw is that I found no evidence of true soothe. Though Anthony Stewart Head has potential. Bear with me, I am hitting his back catalogue. I’ll find something with the sincere promise that it will not involve creepy instant coffee. Geeaaauuurggghh (that’s my shudder noise).

Meanwhile, here’s David Heyman discussing Harry Potter, as suggested by Maria. Thanks Maria.

 

Oh and also, on a Buffy related note I just remembered WHY THE HELL ISN’T NICHOLAS BRENDON STARRING IN SOMETHING ABSOLUTELY RIGHT NOW?

I’m calm. It’s fine.

Voice 19 – Lauren Bacall

In Young Man With a Horn

The Big Sleep

And of course one of the most famous, and soothing, lines in the history of cinema. From the movie To Have and Have Not. Yeah, that’s right. Sexy can be soothing.
