Speaking of Chicago accents, my brother lives just west of Chicago. There's a restaurant near his house called "Da Beef Stand." :)

Here's a wee daft clip of a guy speaking approximately like I do (central Scottish accent), ignore the fact he's a bit of a tool :rolleyes:

I like your accent, Curls :D

And I suspect I like yours as well, Panda:)

I like northern accents.

Not sure what mine is...tend to sound really young when recorded though.

I love the scottish accent. I used to watch a tv show on BBC America called Monarch of the Glen & I loved the scenery, the accents & the sense of humor. It was all viry good. Ive always read that it was filmed right on location & that a lot of the food, history & tradition of scotland, the dance depicted on the show was accurate. Of course not many could afford that lifestyle, although there are a lucky few I suppose.

p.s. the vid guy is a tool.

I freaking LOVED that show. I got hooked when I livedin the UK and then they would play it on BBC America and then I finally found a video store that had the whole sereis on DVD. I used to watch it when I was sick because it was so soothing.

It's soooo good. I had suuuch a crush on Hamish Clark. I'm a sucker for the curley hair. ANd Archie's mum with her little gambling problem. LOVE IT! I do have to say that I had a much easier time listening to the Scotch accents on the telly then when I visited in person. Especially when you get WAY up there. I spent a bit of time in Inverness. Beautiful up there but quite thick, the accents I mean.

The Scottish accent has always been my hands down fave amongst accents.

Mine as well :nod:

And I also used to watch Monarch of the glen:)

In addition I was addicted to a show on Discovery called The Munroe Show, which was all about climbing Scottish mountains. I only watched it for the accent, which I tried to mimick as best I could :lol:

I liked watching The History of Scotland series that was on BBC earlier this year (have I missed the second half?). The historian/host had such a great Scottish accent that reminded me of some of my relatives.
