My glorious name.
« on: 10 Dec 2013, 14:11 »

So Inspector Method (Of Madness) was asking me about my name, given that some folks on here call me Gaz.

It has made me realise that I have no idea how neko and Pat, two of precious few people (and especially Americans) who call me Gaz, would pronounce 'Gaz.'

So my challenge to you, forum, is to post an audio or video of you saying my sexy, chocolatey name.

Because my internet sucks too many dicks to let me do Skype or Mumble.

You have to confirm the email!

EDIT: oh you can add more emails to confirm with! I'll do that then!

The login for [email protected] is the password for the soundcloud pluss gaz' birth year (two last digits). If I figured out his birth year correctly. Please use it to spam the world

Spoken as a letter, in Britain Z is called "zed", not "zee".  Not that we'd say that as part of a word, any more than we'd use "double-you" that way!

Most English speaking people probably won't be able to pronounce my last name correctly, but since testing that would require giving up my last name, we'll never know. Although neko knows it, I think.

If you told me your last name I do not remember it! So your secret is effectively safe with me.

Also I will listen to the other attempts soon but I can tell you all that there is no Z or Th sound in my name.

Pretty sure I told you on skype, when we were chatting about the pronunciation of names. Also I just learned that "pronunciation" is spelled without the o before the u, as in pronounce. That seems kinda weird to me..

It's actually closer to the French and Latin roots - the o is an interpolation.
