Narration

Icarus's picture

I was watching Stranger Than Fiction the other day (wonderful movie, you should watch it) and an idea occurred to me.

If you could someone narrate your life, who would it be?

It can one person, it can be more than one person, they can be dead, alive or somewhere in between, male, female, doesn't matter.

Use your imagination....

This is my list:

Kate Beckinsale-for my romantic moments
Sophia Myles-for my thoughtful moments
Meryl Streep-for my creative moments
Kate Winslet-for my wonderful moments
Tom Hanks-for my childhood moments
Clive Owen-for my sarcastic moments
Anthony Hopkins-for my whimsical moments
Morgan Freeman-for my bored moments
Emma Thompson-for my general life

Haha that's great! I can

Haha that's great! I can imagine it being soooo funny to have someone narrate my life, especially multiple narrators.

Bob Barker - general life
George Clooney - thoughtful moments
Angelina Jolie - romantic moments
Emma Watson (English accent fun!) - sarcastic moments
Tobey Maguire - wonderful moments
Lyndsay Lohan - whimsical moments
Paris Hilton (imagine how funny) - childhood moments
Jay-Z (he'd have to rap everything) - bored moments
Celine Dion - sad moments
Al Gore - aftermath of my life

Wow, I'd love to do a video of someone's day with multiple narrators.

Ideally, Stephen Sondheim, Joss Whedon, and/or Alyson Hannigan. Or Clea DuVall. But realistically? ...Probably Woody Allen. -.-;

I think I would have my friend Ben narrate most of my actions. He'd find a way to make everything hilarious. "And now the majestic Grace Hughen lopes gracefully across the field, only to be viciously attacked by small children demanding that she play their native game 'Frisbee.' This primitive pastime consists of throwing a pie tin-shaped object and hoping it hits someone in the head. And now we see that Grace has particular skill in this aspect of the game, speedily taking out every living creature on the field and even a few trees." You have to hear his voice while he narrates, though, because the way he uses the sound of the words makes whatever he says twice as crazy cool.

Oh my GOD, that's funny! I literally laughed out loud when I read that. I think I want Ben to narrate my life, too...

BEN IS GLORY?? Of course,

BEN IS GLORY??

Of course, none of you get that because there's a forgetting spell on Ben and Glory. And you all forgot. Anyone who remembers and got that joke is probably a vampire. ^^ (sorry, that was ridiculously random. I just got reminded of that)

Mr. James Earl Jones! How could you not want his warm, marbly, grandfatheresque voice to narrate your every move?
