I was sitting on the computer last night trying to be productive and actually write something. My first sentence included the character listening to a voice through an intercom and my first thought was, “What kind of voice is it?”
So, naturally, I found myself googling the different ways to describe a voice. I present to you my findings! I hope you all find it useful.
- adenoidal (adj): if someone’s voice is adenoidal, some of the sound seems to come through their nose
- appealing (adj): an appealing look/voice shows that you want help, approval, or agreement
- breathy (adj): with loud breathing noises
- brittle (adj): if you speak in a brittle voice, you sound as if you are about to cry
- croaky (adj): if someone’s voice sounds croaky, they speak in a low, rough voice that sounds as if they have a sore throat
- dead (adj): if someone’s eyes or voice are dead, they feel or show no emotion
- disembodied (adj): a disembodied voice comes from someone who you cannot see
- flat (adj): spoken in a voice that does not go up and down; this word is often used for describing the speech of people from a particular region
well mr bond shouldn’t you be better at hiding a boner idk
Feast your morbidly curious eyes on this season-appropriate gallery by National Geographic. From the bones of 4,000 Capuchin monks who have been used in a strange art to decorate rooms, to Pharaoh Ti erecting a statue of himself to guard his own tomb from looters, this gallery creepily demonstrates humankind’s fascination with death.
imagine if every text post you made or reblogged was said in the voice of your icon
[The Doctor’s Reward], since [The Doctor Who Waited] was kinda depressing
cus you know when he comes back to john’s flat he’ll hang his coat like it belongs there already.

Via Empire Online, Martin Freeman has been cast in The World’s End, the upcoming film directed by Edgar Wright and starring Simon Pegg and Nick Frost. The film forms the third part of the loosely described ‘Three Flavours Trilogy’, alongside Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz. Martin appeared in small roles in both earlier films.
Martin joins Pegg, Frost, Eddie Marsan (Lestrade in the Warner Bros Holmes films) and Paddy Considine as five childhood friends who reunite, 20 years after taking on the mother of all pub crawls, to attempt it again. Only this time, it coincides with an event that may just be the apocalypse - can the quintet make it to The World’s End pub before the world ends?
Filming is expected to begin within the month, and the film will release in the UK on August 14 2013.
