This is just a small chunk of The Raven I read to give an example of my voice acting.

I can do a wide range of wacky voices as well. PM me if you need voices for your flash.

The Raven

Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered, weak and weary,
Over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore,
While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping,
As of someone gently rapping, rapping at my chamber door.
" 'Tis some visitor," I muttered, "tapping at my chamber door;
Only this, and nothing more."

Ah, distinctly I remember, it was in the bleak December,
And each separate dying ember wrought its ghost upon the floor.
Eagerly I wished the morrow; vainly I had sought to borrow
From my books surcease of sorrow, sorrow for the lost Lenore,.
For the rare and radiant maiden whom the angels name Lenore,
Nameless here forevermore.

And the silken sad uncertain rustling of each purple curtain
Thrilled me---filled me with fantastic terrors never felt before;
So that now, to still the beating of my heart, I stood repeating,
" 'Tis some visitor entreating entrance at my chamber door,
Some late visitor entreating entrance at my chamber door.
This it is, and nothing more."

Presently my soul grew stronger; hesitating then no longer,
"Sir," said I, "or madam, truly your forgiveness I implore;
But the fact is, I was napping, and so gently you came rapping,
And so faintly you came tapping, tapping at my chamber door,
That I scarce was sure I heard you." Here I opened wide the door;---
Darkness there, and nothing more.

Deep into the darkness peering, long I stood there, wondering, fearing
Doubting, dreaming dreams no mortals ever dared to dream before;
But the silence was unbroken, and the stillness gave no token,
And the only word there spoken was the whispered word,
Lenore?, This I whispered, and an echo murmured back the word,
"Lenore!" Merely this, and nothing more.

you had a eerily perfect voice for this poem.


I have no shame in admitting that I have a great portion of this poem memorized. WIN!

Thanks for bringing it to life, creepily. That's a compliment, by the way. Because, you know. That's sort of what my broseph Edgar was about. Ha!


Nailing it. But you definitely need a pop filter. try this trick out. Point the face of the mic to the side of your mouth, kind of at an angle. That will prevent your P's from popping into clip.

other than that little thing you've got a great voice for acting.

McFooFa responds:

Thanks, and I'll try that out, good advice. :)


Nice "poem" and voice acting, but it's a bit nasally [aka sound coming from the nose]

McFooFa responds:

Thanks, yeah, it sounds nasally because of my somewhat mediocre mic. :/
