    Can't say there are too many threads where you actually get to hear other TBers talk so here's one that I jacked from Tumblr! Only rule is that you have to say the question before you answer. Attach it however you want. Go!

    What is the story behind your username?

    How old are you?

    Where you’re from.

    What is your favorite color?

    What did you drink just before doing this?

    Pronounce the following words: Aunt, Roof, Route, Theater, Iron, Salmon, Caramel, Fire, Water, New Orleans, Pecan, Both, Again, Probably, Alabama, Lawyer, Coupon, Mayonnaise, Pajamas, Caught, Naturally, Aluminium, GIF, Crackerjack, Doorknob, Envelope, polka dots, Swag, Papaya, Penthouse, Bestiality, Subtext, Smile.

    What is it called when you throw toilet paper on a house?

    What is a bubbly carbonated drink called?

    What do you call gym shoes?

    What do you call your grandparents?

    What do you call the wheeled contraption in which you carry groceries at the supermarket?

    What is the thing you change the TV channel with?

    Choose a book and read a passage from it.

    Do you think you have an accent?

    Would you rather: Have a million dollars or a million friends? Eat a taco or a quesadilla? Eat a banana slug or lick a cow’s butt? Be a shark or an elephant? Be a wizard or a vampire?

    Do you know anyone on Talkbass in real life?

    End audio post by saying any THREE words you want.

    Kwesi,

    This is a great idea, and I am going to do it when I get some quiet time.

    Just promise you won't edit and splice the audio to make it sound like I confessed to some heinous act involving mayonnaise, bestiality and an Alabama lawyer.

    Ahh I did something like this a while back but with a poem. This is an even better idea, good one Kwesi! I'll record something later.

    http://tindeck.com/ should work for ya. Could also try soundcloud.

    You know, a few months back I started trying to pronounce Aluminium properly because it just sounds right. Looks like I fell off the wagon :p.

    It's pretty awesome hearing from other TBers! Glad to see that folks decided to take part. Went back and listened to mine and I have no idea why I answered the first half of the questions as if I were asking another question. I blame it on nervousness :p.

    No worries, I actually do that too! I just made a concentrated effort not to do it this time knowing that I sound like I'm perpetually confused and asking questions.

    Really? I didn't have any popups or any problems at all. Are you using Firefox and using any kind of ad blocker?

    On my mobile. Could not find a listen button only a download link. And when I clicked on that it gave me instructions to download the listening software.

    Yeah could be that it's not overly compatible with mobiles. Some sites are like that.

    With my browser I can request the desktop version of the site instead of just the mobile site. Oh well I'll just listen to it when I get home instead.

    You can try www.dropbox.com, too. It's got a freebie version.

    I'll do something, but it'll be the weekend probably.

    Yeah, tindeck, unfortunately, is flash based so it doesn't get along too well with certain mobile devices. Soundcloud or Dropbox might be the best option.
