and an american accent

anonymous asked:

Hi big big question that you can ignore. Ayou UK or US based ? Or somewhere else ? Just because I thought you were in the UK but seen you speak about cash like "dollars" and not pounds or am I overthinking it ?? And sure I've seen you use other American phrases that anyone can use obviously but dont see as many UK phrases (sorry if I am being ott I am autistic and I have a hard time with interpretation so I bet I'm missing something really obvious to all)

i’m in the UK, 100% scottish, but i use american phrases and spelling a lot. it started bc my google chrome spellcheck was set to american english and kept highlighting english spelt words, like organisation, and i didnt like having things underlined so i just….. started spelling things american… cus i was too lazy to change the settings.

also scottish ppl think i have an american accent. but non scottish people think i have a scottish accent. basically, im bootleg american

Katie McGrath has made me a fan of hers after this weekend so I wanted to watch her in anything other than the show she’s currently on. So there’s a mini series on Netflix called Slasher. I’m watching and I’m wondering … do the ppl who cast her not realize she cannot actually speak in an American accent ?? Lmaoo

I imagined him differently” Jiyong said in korean to the Marshal, thinking Seunghyun wouldn’t understand. He was wrong.
“Ehi! Better or worse?” Seunghyun, in fact, asked back in a perfect korean without any trace of american accent, taking Jiyong aback.

This morning I got off the phone with my mum, she asked me when I was going to settle down and have kids like my two older brothers. Does anyone else get this conversations on a daily basis from their parents, or is it just me that does? I’m Jesse by the way, no I’m not American, I just fake the accent. No I’m not a real firefighter. I was close to being a doctor though, a real one. Decided to play a fake one on tv. Anyway, how is everyone doing? 

listen, i’m in italy, talking to italian ppl in english in an American Accent. i can hear it. i can see them shudder. i am being So Nice. but i know they hate me. i hate myself. i am screaming. that might be a factor in them hating me

kind of want to do a michael in the bathroom cover but i would have to decide whether to go for the unfortunate comedy of singing phrases such as “i am hanging in the bathroom at the biggest party of the fall” in my posh british accent OR the unfortunate comedy that is the entire concept of my attempt at an american accent

The Time I Pushed a Jerkface off a 35ft Cliff(With Good Reason)

Before we start off let me be clear. I did not murder a man by randomly shoving him off a cliff. Technically, I actually had permission, but still not murder. Chill.

Here we go.

So this is back in Mexico, at the same park as the Sting Ray Incident, just an hour later. Id already recovered from my near death experience and moved on from my friend nearly drowning me. I faced it, i survived, im good and not concerned.

One of the many attractions at this park was the Cliff of Courage. It’s a 35ft cliff that plunges into the water. Now, by my standards, 35ft is low for a cliff jump. Ive done way higher (adrenaline junkie) but obviously i was gonna jump just to say that I did. My parents, grandparents, and Jamie didnt want to jump. No surprise, so they went ahead to meet me on the other side of the river.

So sixteen year old me wanders over and there’s this big group of burly looking men.

Like huge

They’re all standing at the edge jostling each other around. And just by looking at them you can see they’re american. I dont even need to hear their texan accents to know.

So they’re pulling the whole macho act of “you jump i jump” “ohhh but then you wont jump” bs and just generally being chickens and not willing to show it.

And because of this they wont let anyone else jump. Like ten people came and left because these jerks wouldnt let anyone else go.

Eventually i get annoyed and snap “either jump or get out of my way!”

And the dude who is obviously the leader just turns and grins at me.

He assumed what i call the “douchebag alpha male pose” hands on hips, crotch foreward, you know the one, and you know the body language that goes with it.

He thinks he’s superior. Now this guy is the biggest of them all.

Massive biceps, raging six pack, the works. The Hulk would probaby do a double take at this dudes size.

And little me is not intimidated in the least.

I learned to fight at a very young age, especially men larger than me. I know if things turns south i can take him no problem. A few hits here and there and he’s out for the count.

He starts walking towards me, and i step forward too. He may be alpha male, but he just crossed an Alpha Female who doesnt back down from a challenge.

Strike one.

He looks over at his pals and says,

“Ohhhh, the little lady’s going to jump, is she?” And he just sneers down at me, all arrogance and misplaced confidence.

Strike two.

“Tell you what, sweetheart.” Ohhh he did not just say that. “You jump, we’ll let you push us.”

Three strikes he’s out he just made the biggest mistake of his life.

I just grin and go “ok” and turn and immediately dive over the edge. Im soaring through the air, enjoying the fall. I turn just in time to see his face go from 😏 to 😧

I smack down into the water grinning. Originally the plan was the swim across the river and meet up with my family, but i am cashing in this bet. Except there’s only one way to get back up to that cliff from here

I scale the side of the cliff with the rope and I can hear them chatting nervously up top

I pop up over the edge and prop myself up on the ledge with the sweetest, most steel-lined smile I can manage and say, “who’s next?”

So Alpha laughs and stands at the edge as I haul myself up. He’s laughing and assuring his buddies he’ll be back in a second cause I wont really do it and–

I straight arm him and he goes flying

He flails and plunges over the edge, shrieking in the most high pitched, terrified shriek Ive ever heard a dude bro make. He sputters to the surface and gapes up at me as I grin like a hellion down at him. I turn to the rest of his jerk buddies and smile.

Oddly enough they all jumped of their own accord

These were the scenes Alex Drake insinuated herself into Spencer’s life.

701: Hanna “dreams” of Spencer giving her an idea of a way of escaping BUT, this is actually Alex trying to find out if Hanna knew who killed Charlotte. 

708: Spencer sits in her living room in an argyle sweater looking through her photo album, except this is actually Alex looking through the “perfect life her twin sister had.

710: Spencer visits Toby to say goodbye before he leaves Rosewood. This is in fact Alex, and there was a MAJOR clue we all missed. She is wearing the same argyle sweater from the ending of 708; the scene above this one. 

715: The famous airport scene. One of the biggest scenes that bought so many people on board the Twincer theory. Spencer was so unlike Spencer in the scene and there’s even a dead giveaway when Alex’s accent changes for a split second from American to British. 

718: Now THIS scene was one of the BIGGEST clues to Spencer having a twin and this being her twin. The way she was acting, it was so unlike Spencer. Toby even makes a comment along the lines of “That doesn’t sound like the Spencer I know.” We also posted about this scene here which you can check out. 

720: This scene was also Alex.

just to be clear: this is a post that is specific to a comment on the star trek discovery video. very specific to that particular thing before any of you come at me w/ any kind of Shit for this.

im tired of white people saying that non white people’s accents aren’t understandable or are super hard to understand (i could understand what michelle yeoh was saying PERFECTLY) like fuck you i hate you i have grown up all my life with ppl in my family who have heavy accents and have trouble with english here but i can still understand them you are such horrible people you are so cruel and mean you’re fine with chekov’s heavy russian accent and scotty’s thick scottish accent but god forbid the asian woman can’t have the perfect american accent fuck you all i hate you all so much and you leave a disgusting bitter taste in my mouth

and before any of you say anything, yes, i know it can be hard to understand someone with an accent. i have trouble too sometimes. but this is specifically about a comment on michelle yeoh’s accent and her speaking in star trek discovery, which was perfectly clear in my opinion, but so many people are so hateful in the comments there.
