Any voice over talent who thinks they are “above” another voice talent by means of success rate and doesn’t need to network with other business peers is sadly mistaken. This is why events like Faffcon and Faffcamp were exist. Events for networking, learning, growing, and realizing our true potential. I hope you registered. faffcamp.com
I understand where I am in the cosmic order of things, and I’m ok with it.
You see people in the world and you’re like ‘Do you know how a washing machine works? Do you know how to wash a dish? Life skills are something we’re missing. There used to be a class that kids had to take in high school called home economics, which was cooking and sewing and just shit you needed to learn in life.
Looking for some Friday fun?
Here’s one that will just put you in cuteness over-drive. Great for procrastination. Growing up I had a black lab and whenever we’d come home from going out to dinner, she’d have this same cute (guilty) look on her face. We always suspected her of nibbling on the rug or staircase, but in fact it was just her way of showing affection. We called her “wrinkle nose”
The internet needs more guilty dog videos NOT talking cats.
In The World of Audio Stuff…
A piece of audio equipment I would like to eventually upgrade to is the new Audient iD22 USB Interface. Well, voice talent Paul Strikwerda reviewed it last year on his blog and gave it his thumbs up. I was pretty sure this would be my next studio toy, having been an Apogee user for quite some time it does seem appropriate. You can check the original review out here:
But I am even more over-joyed that Audio tech wizard George Whittam has decided to do a full video review of the product. For someone like me who is a “Audio Interfaces for Dummies” kind of guy… This couldn’t have been more suitable.The price range is not too bad either. And it doesn’t rely on USB power. But that’s just the icing on the cake.

On The “Art” of Voice Over:
"We’re kind of commercial artists. To claim it as an art is a little misleading in that it’s directed by the marketplace. It’s commissioned by the market place, to achieve a specific result."
