Cool Guys Don’t Look at Applications

in davinci-application •  last year  (edited)

To be as transparent as possible, I will also provide you guys with an official application for the position of the German Language Manager at the translation project of @utopian-io and @davinci.witness. Apparently, everyone is doing this right now, and I don't want to be the only guy, who isn't following the rules and gets bullied by all the other cool kids.

For those of you who don't know me already, let me tell you a bit about myself.
I've been writing on Steemit for half a year now, mainly focusing on establishing a reputation of being an arrogant smart-ass.
I worked for several months now with @zest as his translator for the German adaptions of his posts.
In addition to that, I’m working as a bartender which requires some decent English skills as well – nobody likes a boring bartender, who is not able to talk with his customers.
My frequent readers are probably aware, that I'm also a victim of my temptation to chase for every bad joke there is.
But even as a German, I cannot come up with any kind of final solution regarding this issue. Too bad.

One of the requirements for these applications is uploading a sound file, which proves my ability to speak English. Most of the other guys are just reading the text they wrote.
I think, that's boring as fuck. No offense. So, since you are about to listen to my sweet voice for the first time ever, it should be something special. That’s why I’m reading several different parts of texts I wrote for this blog – and added some special effects (since I like editing audio files quite much).

Hit me!

Um so transparent wie möglich zu sein, werde ich euch auch eine offizielle Bewerbung für die Position des German Language Managers im Übersetzungsprojekt von @utopian-io und @davinci.witness zukommen lassen. Anscheinend macht das jetzt jeder, und ich will nicht der Einzige sein, der sich nicht an die Regeln hält und von all den anderen coolen Kids gemobbt wird.

Für alle, die mich noch nicht kennen, möchte ich etwas über mich erzählen.
Ich schreibe jetzt seit einem halben Jahr auf Steemit und konzentriere mich hauptsächlich darauf, den Ruf eines arroganten Klugscheißers aufzubauen.
Seit einigen Monaten arbeite ich nun mit @zest als Übersetzer für die deutschen Adaptionen seiner Beiträge.
Außerdem arbeite ich als Barkeeper, was auch gute Englischkenntnisse erfordert - niemand mag einen langweiligen Barkeeper, der nicht mit seinen Kunden sprechen kann.
Meinen Stammlesern ist wahrscheinlich bewusst, dass ich auch ein Opfer der Versuchung bin, jedem schlechten Witz nachzulaufen.
Aber selbst als Deutscher kann ich in dieser Frage keine Endlösung finden. Zu schade.

Eine der Voraussetzungen für diese Bewerbungen ist das Hochladen einer Sounddatei, die meine Fähigkeit, Englisch zu sprechen, beweist. Die meisten anderen Leute lesen nur den Text, den sie gerade geschrieben haben.
Ich denke, das ist verdammt langweilig. Nichts für ungut. Also, da ihr meine wunderbare Stimme zum ersten Mal hören werdet, sollte das etwas Besonderes sein. Deshalb lese ich verschiedene Abschnitte von Texten, die ich für diesen Blog geschrieben habe - inklusive einiger Spezialeffekte (da ich Audiodateien sehr gerne bearbeite).
Viel Spaß damit.

I'm quite sure this is a fake voice made by one of those new AIs, sorry.

Damn, you got me :(

By far one of the best applications ..
(vielleicht das beste sogar :P)

Nice post!

(I think that most people are just boringly reading what they wrote because that's what the instructions said x) )
