thats 3 and a half minutes of my life im never getting back *sigh* could stand to watch the whole thing. uh.

anyway, an answering machine message really should say:
"OH! you`re not home! well, uh, hi its Jon, my number is 123456, get back to me when you can, bye!" BEEP.

"Heck, when I`m on the phone, everyone says that I sound like my mother!"

People who call often mistake me for my father, so you`re not the only one with that problem.

I...don`t get it. I understand the point, yes, but I don`t understand why people find it scary to record the answering machine message? And I`m extremely self-critical, very aware of my flaws, and I hate my voice. Heck, when I`m on the phone, everyone says that I sound like my mother! Is there a worse insult than that?

Anyway, what I`m saying is...when people are calling you and have to leave a message, they don`t want to hear some long recording of you showing them how original you are. They want to leave a message. So long as your recording makes it clear that they do indeed have the right number, nothing else matters!

Although, once or twice, I`ve come across some totally hilarious and original answering machine messages...some people are just really good at that sort of thing. But it`s rare and I think it`s good that it`s rare.

"How do people not think this is hilarious?"

We have a brain and a life. That was just dumb. I didn`t watch it all but listened to more of it than I should have. It was pathetic and a waste of good film. It was also waaaaaaaaay too long.

Just use the message that comes with the answering machine, who cares about originality on a silly message.

oh my God, I want to jump off a bridge now after watching that. After four minutes into it, I couldn`t take any more and had to slam my laptop against the wall screaming, "AAAAAAAAAAARRRRRGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHH MY BRAAAAAAAAAAIN!!!!!!!!" or words to that effect.

Seriously, these "film-makers" don`t really know squat. The lighting was terrible, the acting was... terrible, the sound was DREADFUL, and all I could hear in the background was some annoying pffffffffffffff noise that prevented me from hearing him properly.

I am studying film at uni, and seriously, I could do a better job on drugs with a 10 year old camcorder.

I think it`s all about our self image. We are never confident when we hear our own voices. I hate to see myself one video tape. I become so critical of every physical flaw that I have. The truth is noone really cares what your voice sounds like any more than how you feel about the way that you friends and family look and sound.... (aww man this too deep, i`ll be thinkin about this all day now).....

that was maybe a little too long, so glad it got funnier (and maybe a bit worrying at the end)
why is this such a hard thing for men to acomplish?
