Mad Scientist Voice

October 21, 2010 10:03 AM

Can anyone do a good mad scientist voice, along the lines of Bela Lugosi in Plan 9? I need some vocals for the song I'm doing for this month's challenge, and my acting ability is pretty much nil.

How about a slightly exaggerated Peter Lorre?

That should work- I'll send you an email.

I could do you something fruitily English or crazily Scottish. But sns's Lorre sounds like the better bet to me...

This is IZ's gig, but I love collaborating. Also, I can't check personal e-mail till after work in a couple of hours.

I'm in for the Lorre thing-- you didn't get the email I sent you last night sns? I used the address in your profile.

I could probably write something for the crazily Scottish voice; a good chunk of my anscestors were crazy Scots, and the rest of them were just crazy.

Sorry, for not getting back IZ. I was making some paper mache skulls for Halloween. I have everything now and I'm working on it.

Major, if you like this kind of stuff we should do a Radio Drama kind of thing some time. I'm sure that between the two of us it would kick ass.

You know what sns? That would be a total blast! Particularly if we could rope in a few other volunteers. We need to do something like a 5-minute excerpt from a really serious movie or a play (something po-faced by Ibsen or someone like that is ripe for send-up). The only rule should be that it has to be hysterically funny verging into insanity....

I'm still working on this piece...trying to get it in one take...but yea, Major, let's do that! I'll get back to you when I've finished this.
