THE TEXT:

The Audition text: (Thanks to Carmel_l and OddOneOutfor this!)


EXTRACT - A Declaration of the Independence of Cyberspace

Governments of the Industrial World, you weary giants of flesh and steel, I come from Cyberspace, the new home of Mind. On behalf of the future, I ask you of the past to leave us alone. You are not welcome among us. You have no sovereignty where we gather.

We have no elected government, nor are we likely to have one, so I address you with no greater authority than that with which liberty itself always speaks. I declare the global social space we are building to be naturally independent of the tyrannies you seek to impose on us. You have no moral right to rule us nor do you possess any methods of enforcement we have true reason to fear.

Governments derive their just powers from the consent of the governed. You have neither solicited nor received ours. We did not invite you. You do not know us, nor do you know our world. Cyberspace does not lie within your borders. Do not think that you can build it, as though it were a public construction project. You cannot. It is an act of nature and it grows itself through our collective actions.


John Perry Barlow - Open email (1996)

I have uploaded an example reading on my profile for those who would like to hear it to clarify any queries.

THE RULES:

Rules are the same as the British accent competition, which was organised by _Tim_, Judges will judge the first round, by selecting their favourite 5 entries, and then awarding a number of points to each of them, with 5 to their most favourite, and 1 to their least favourite. They will then PM me the results in private, so that I can collate them, and then make a new thread with a poll to select the final 5 to be judged by the whole pit.

Any questions, feel free to post ITT, you have until 23.59 Thursday 11th September to post your entry.

The very best of Luck to all of you!

Regards
_Tim_ and LordBishek

I'll warn you all though, I don't have a Yorkshire accent, at all
And DAMN, I really hate my voice, a lot. I wish it were deeper
I hope it doesn't seem, like I'm young, foolish, and green.

Nice try.

I'll also include a french translation of the extract (made by me), 'cause I'll submit one in english (second language) and one in french (first language)

EXTRAIT - Une déclaration de l'indépendance du Cyberespace.

Gouvernements du monde industriel, géants fatigués de chair et d'acier, je viens du Cyberespace, la nouvelle demeure de l'Esprit. De la part du future, je vous demande, à vous du passé, de nous laisser seuls. Vous n'êtes pas les bienvenus parmi nous. Vous n'avez aucune souveraineté là où nous nous regroupons.

Nous n'avons aucun gouvernement élu, et nous ne prévoyons pas en avoir, alors je communique avec vous sans plus grande autorité que celle de la Liberté. Je déclare l'espace social global que nous construisons naturellement indépendant de la tyrannie que vous désirez nous imposer. Vous n'avez aucun droit moral de nous gouverner et ne possédez aucun moyen physique que nous devons craindre.

Les gouvernements imposent leurs pouvoirs de la volonté des gouvernés. Vous n'avez ni sollicité ni reçu la nôtre. Nous ne vous avons pas invité. Vous ne nous connaissez pas, ni notre monde. Le Cyberespace ne repose pas à l'intérieur de vos frontières. Ne croyez pas que vous pouvez le bâtir, à l'instar d'un projet public de construction. Vous ne pouvez pas. C'est un acte naturel et il croît à travers nos actions collectives.

Americans generally don't have very interesting accents, unless they're from Wisconsin or they're black.

Don't worry. I've been told I have a great voice that is very resonant. (coming from my aunt, who's a professional singer)

Isn't there already like 3 threads for this? Couldn't you just update the first?

I said it first

What's it to be dude, you judging or competing?
Entirely up to you

Isn't there already like 3 threads for this? Couldn't you just update the first?

Yes, but I get a wierd thrill every time I click the "new thread button"

Also, Tim's banned, so if people look up the first thread and see the TS is banned, they might not think about entering, or may assume the competition is off. Also, this smaller threads are more cohesive and easier to follow.

But mostly it's that "special" feeling.
