A Pocket Full of Murder

(no subject)

The Speech Accent Archive is really cool. Check out the diverse array of English accents, for instance. Alas, most of the British contributors sound pretty similar -- I was hoping for a sample of Cockney or Scouse. But there's a yummy Glaswegian accent, and I'm rather fond of the speaker from Wellington, New Zealand as well. No Welsh speakers, though, more's the pity...

And for a somewhat less educational listening experience, there's always this (hint: you'll need to click on one of the hands).
