    Agreed. Part of the problem is that he's using the onboard cam microphone, in a room with hard walls. That raises the recorded frequency of his voice a little and harshens it, and adds some room echo.

    Those cam mics usually have limited frequency range, anyway, and are capturing the sound from too far away. The trick is to use a separate high-quality microphone, plugged into the jack that all camcorders have, that can be placed closer to the speaker. Or even worn as a small lavaliere.

    When I was doing radio and voice-over work I would point the microphone a little below my mouth, not only to avoid "plosives" (popping the microphone with consonants like the English letter "P"), but also to pick up more of the deep partial frequencies coming from my chest. With such techniques even a guy with a higher natural voice like Davey's could sound less queeny.

    On the subject of Davey Wavey, I think he is a phenomenally well-spoken individual (or maybe he's just super comfortable speaking on camera). Plus, that body doesn't hurt to watch.

    As for Josh, I say bring'em! Not because it's good for the gay community, but because you should enjoy your prom with the person you most enjoy to be with.

    He's getting an ED article. He has earned it.
