I think Tom was humming too.
But his heart wasn't definitely all into it like Veronica's was. Next week, I want an all out trio of the Zelda theme song in E minor (whatever that means). Twas entertaining none the less.
I'm also getting a Revolution first (I refuse to call it that other name) and WHEN I win the lottery, I'll buy a PS3.
Yes very sing-songy.
The podcast doesn't have subtitles
On my TV I have Closed Captioning turned on so I can catch what was said when the tone and metre of the speaker causes me not to hear (as I have HF hearing loss).
An even worse situation is when I am listening to a public presentation by someone from India (or is it with people from Pakistan, I cannot tell). The 'sing-songy' nature of their speaking makes it almost inaudible (to me at least).
Another cause for not hearing the words is when they are spoken too fast or when people talk over each other. When watching West Wing (now over) I used to just turn down the audio completely and only read the Closed Captioning, it was so bad.
Walter Cronkite was very aware of the need to speak clearly which is (partly) why he became so well known.
Maybe I am just too old for this crowd. Could it be that I am just a 'cranky geek' ??
I'm going to miss West Wing
I wish they hadn't decided to cancel it.
It is to the benefit of the Democrats that it is canceled
I recently heard West Wing described as 'political pornography for the liberals' and then described as 'the way we wish politics was'.
Us conservatives (yes I am a conservative) had Rush Limbagh during the Clinton years as our 'political pornography'.
So it is to the advantage of the Democrats that West Wing is cancelled. That way they can build up a big head of steam (with no way to blow it off except in blogs and mom-and-pop pod-casts) building up to the Democratic convention.
