Please take this the right way: Do NOT go down that self-slapping "I'm not educated" or "I have an accent" road. Anyone who really truly holds your education level or your accent against you is an ass.Admittedly, some accents turn me on while others turn me off sexually. But that's just sex. (IMO, all the Southern ranges of accents are total turn-ons. Kinda in the same class as an Aussie accent.)Anyway, you've got as much to say as the rest of us. The topics you choose are your choice. Just go with it, if you want. If not, then don't. Unless you're trying to create a variety show or some larger type of big-time program, just say what you want.It's part of your blogging. Which means it's just you expressing yourself. And that's all it has to be.
Don't know if there is anything I can add other than what atari said above. Tried to drop you an e-mail to respond to a comment you had on my blog. The show from the Chicago Gay Men's Chorus started at 8:30 PM and we got out shortly after 10:00 PM. So, unfortunately timing didn't work out at Sidetrack. However, if you were there, you would have been easy to spot (in a good way).
Well for my two cents, if there are things about yourself you don't like, what are you doing to change it? It seems we always come back to this. You worry to much about what other people think of you. Worry more about what YOU think of you. I have sooo been there. Your voice, your demeanor, you style is very sexy to some and maybe not so much to others. The problem is you want everyone to like you and that simply isn't possible. My best advise to you is just be Brett. When your guard is down you are very charming and sweet.
Every so often us Yanks like to listen to southerners; it reassures us that winning the war was the right thing.(Jeff Foxworthy says: When you hear someone speak with a southern accent, you automatically deduct 10 I.Q. Points.)
Just wanted to let you know how much I enjoy reading your blog. As to the accent, don't change a thing. I met the man of my dreams nineteen years ago-happy life since then and still going strong! He is a southern boy and has completely lost his accent. I always look forward to going back to visit his family. Love the charming accents and he tends to let a little of it slip in when he is around them. Sexy as hell!!!! Just love your blog!!
Love that T-A-W-A-A-N-G!!!!Hmmm, you narssasitic? LMAO!!!! Lordy, you sure talk up a storm bud. MWAH!
I feel like I should add one thing, since I might have come off holier-than-thou. Most of us do something like that to ourselves, me being one of the worst. It's just that, for some reason of our upbringing, our experiences, our dashed hopes, or simply our fears, that we choose different aspects of ourselves to devalue.And it's so good to hear someone else tell us point blank that there is no reason to do so.
Awww.... thanks guys. ;)Atari: I know what you are saying. TRUST ME... I know I am my own worst enemy.
I feel so silly coming here so late. I had this podcast downloaded for a very long time, but it wouldn't transfer over to my ipod. I guess it's because I have a nano and you saved it as a .mov file. But I finally converted into an mp3 and put it on my little friend. See the dedication! I think it's odd how you can always be such the queen of self-deprecation (sorry, that's just how I talk, not saying you're any queenier than you may be ;)). I personally would love it if you would do more audio podcasts. I'm not a fan so much of the video (sorry Darin). And for Christ sake's! I get fun of for the way I sound as well, so don't worry about it. There's nothing wrong with accents, and you sound just fine. I really did appreciate all of the kind words, but I feel a little strange and even disconcerted that Adam and I seem to create so much anxiety for you (perhaps I'm misunderstanding). What I think would be especially fascinating would be to hear a conversation between you and the Shrew. I think it's always quite fascinating to hear how people interact within their relationships. Plus, you used to do those podcasts with Scotty before, and for some strange reason, now I always think of you whenever I hear that Kylie, I believe in you song. God I feel like I'm coming off as self-aggrandizing, and I will most likely never have the dedication to do many of the things you've accomplished and, sure, maybe you like "stir the pot", but there's nothing wrong with that. Hope to hear more if that's what you choose.
