Yes the Fall.

A bit slow seems to be a good description and it’s "Norn Iron" or maybe "Norn Irn" for a phonetic sounding equivalent to here in our accent (at it’s broadest). You are being kind of course, my first impressions were – what is this crap lol. Gillian was Scully so she can be in anything and she’s ok in my book but as for the rest – well below par. Maybe it will turn out brilliant, but for now, for me anyway….. ughhhhhhhhh.

I tend to think of our accent as a condensed version of the British Isles. Take the Scots, Welsh and English variations, condense them further and then add the Irish variations, then split it per region. We have quite a spread for such a small land mass and that’s just the North.

I can’t pass up the opportunity to mention this next thing. A new Dracula movie is to be filmed here http://news.sky.com/story/1093401/dracu … rn-ireland

Now, it shouldn’t feature our accent (rightly so) but in our accent the word Dracula can best be intimated as Drac-a-lar. It’s not as phonetic as Norn Irn but if you can imitate our accent then saying Drac-a-lar seems to work, for a broad Belfast accent anyway.

Here’s a Dublin radio station’s comedy characters take on our accent and ‘situation’ – very funny. The Toll Trolls.

Thanks Trav. I’m running your last post through Google Translate and awaiting results. ;)
They’ve extended their range considerably, of late.

smithy-

That site you posted requires running Java. Don’t do that. You want a ship to sink? Put a hole in it. Want a computer to sink, use Java.

I have it completely uninstalled on all of my systems and I recommend for everyone to do the same.

glurk – you make a good point. I didn’t use the site (I don’t have java installed any more either!) I just posted the link. Thoughtless of me.
It might be better if other people didn’t use it either, yes, for fear that the evil coffee bean caffeine them out.
If they want help with Klingon or Romulan, they can come back here to Trav.
Ahem.
:oops:

I thought I had removed all my java stuff, but it keeps finding a way back. I don’t do auto-updates either. Any ideas as to what I might be missing?

Been watching the new season of Arrested Development on Netflix. Pretty cool how they show you something that later is explained in other episodes. Looking forward to Breaking Bad this coming month and best show on TV Imo.

Since 2008, I very rarely watch TV but, if not on my PC, here, or asleep, I’ll make an effort to catch Seinfeld, Sanford and Son, Martin, Mecum Auctions, and the occasional interesting suspense/thriller/classic/documentary on cable. The last current movie I saw was Killer Joe.

I lied. It was rubbish!
Still – next year they’re releasing "Lego – The Movie". The trailer looks great, I can’t wait.

Got Hulu Plus back in on my Roku players and been catching up on seasons I missed of The Shield and the last Season of The Office I missed. Started watching Twin Peeks for the first time and can’t believe I never gave the show a chance after all those years till now.

Twin Peaks, now that takes me back…..to sometime in the haze that is my memory. Watching Teen Wolf (the series not the film).

I’m watching alot of Discovery ID channel, Longmire,and cathing up on The Americans, all in all, I am really counting down to Fall with new episodes of Sons of Anarchy,Walking Dead, and NFL football.Dexter starts this week too, I almost forgot, but I think the show is getting a bit long in the tooth,and I didnt like the direction the show went in last season. Same goes for Breaking Bad,I have grown to dislike Walt very much, and actually hope he gets killed. Jesse is still a cool character.
