Peter, say "Mah Spice" and you will have instantly said
"My Space" in a perfect American hillbilly accent. My gift to you.

Greg and gang, I put CD Baby's "storefront" thingie on myspace.com/slimvolume. The alternative is the Snocap store thingie, which looks a lot sleeker, and is quite large and eye-catching.

Any wisdom at all about having the store on there, and if "looks" are important?

Thanks! Swim Vawoom

My gift to you, Slim...

"Emma Chisit? The egg nishner. Emma Chisit?" Say it out loud.

That's strine (Australian) for "How much is it? The air conditioner. How much is it?"

Very Happy

Peter

How on earth can you speak "Strine" and type the Queen's english at the same time?? Does that make you bilingual or ambidexterous? Cool

Strine is only written to illustrate the broad accent and how some Aussies drop consonants and do other things when speaking. A guy by the name of Afferbeck Lauder (say that out loud a few times) wrote a book titled "Let Stalk Strine". This page offers a few other examples from his book. You can go batty trying to get your head 'round them after a while. We're a weird mob.
