DP Daily Prompt: Can’t Stand Me
What do you find more unbearable, watching a video of yourself, or listening to a recording of your voice? Why?
Before I decide which one is undesirable my voice, or a video of myself? I will pick my voice not the video, how did I figure it out,here is how?
When I was a student in London’s Institute Of Education, each one of us were given a piece of writing to read and record. We were instructed to go to the room where there was a recorder and a piece of writing , we were to go one at a time and read and record what was on that piece of paper, none of us saw it before, when my turn came I walked over to the room closed the door behind me and read the piece.
When we all had our turn, our Prof. Mr. Baird brought the recorder and played it for all of us to listen to our voice. When mine was finished, he said, “A fine piece of reading”, this made me think my voice is worth listening to.
As regards the video, my husband once took out his video camera and told us to walk while he took the video, there were a large number of us all family members, we had no idea how we should walk, it ended up to be a disaster, none of us looked good, so video of myself was not what anyone will call nice.
