  • This is splendid. I aim to use it as often as I can in the office.

  • Aw, man, I can't imagine when I'd ever get to use a Cape Horn voice. The last time was more than a decade ago, working at a Renaissance Fair, when I had to be heard over the jousters and the kettle drums. Not even on those rare occasions when bellowing an order to the ranks, or shouting the next tune title over the snare drums.

    Bloody hell. Now I'm mad because I'll never get to use my Cape Horn voice! *pouts*

  • Well, I can't really use a Cape Horn voice in the office. It's deadly quiet. Then again, that may be a good way to shake things up.... *reconsidering*

    How about around your family? You know, those people who came up with these at Christmas? ;-P

  • You know, there has to be a difference between generic bellowing, and using a Cape Horn voice. I do bellow around my family--if only to be generally acknowledged amid all the obnoxiousity--but there has to be a difference between general family-style bellowment and Cape Horn voice.

  • I would say that if you sound as loud as a klaxon, then you're probably on the right track to using a Cape Horn voice. Anything less loud and it's just regular old bellowing.

  • They say Stentor had a voice as loud as fifty men.

  • Making Capt. Aubrey distentorian, then? Perhaps supradistentorian?

    August 16, 2008

  • Or centastentorian.

    But no, that would be 100 times louder....
