Sand Beasts January 27, 2011

These things might be more accurately called Wind Beasts but since I made up the title, I’m sticking with it.

It’s well worth watching the 2.5 minute video, narrated by a girl with a delightful Irish (Scottish ?) accent.

Someone smarter than me, may be able to embed it. It’s on Wimp.com

I like his line:

“What I’ve found about this experience of making new forms of life, is that you discover all the problems which the real Creator must have had, creating this world.”

Irish or Scottish? Put me some knowledge here, people.

Neither, I think. Just English would be my guess.

I take it back. It looks like the female narrator on that show was Ashley Jensen, and she was born in Scotland. Her accent seems very light to me, but when I listened again you can hear her slightly roll an “r” one time in a Gaelic sounding way.

You can’t hear the Scot in that voice? I’m a total retard and I could hear that.

Amazing! I loved it. Way cool.

If she’s a professional narrator, it is likely she tried to lose as much of the Scots as she could. Either way, it’s lovely.
