Behind the Mike

In the immortal words of Rocket J. Squirrel, "That voice! Where have I heard that voice?"

The plucky cartoon squirrel's voice was provided by June Foray, who also lent her talents to Cindy Lou Who, the Smurfs, Natasha Fatale, and countless others. She is just one of dozens of voice actors featured in a new documentary, I Know That Voice, that puts faces to the voices we've heard for decades. 

Voice actors are more than imitators or readers -- they bring life to the characters they portray. We learn how to get started in this unique field, what it's like to be part of a voice acting project, and hear plenty of great show business stories along the way. This new film is a treat for the ears and eyes, a unique look behind the mike at decades' worth of unsung talent. That's all, folks!

You Are What You Read!

Here’s a little something I bet you did not know about us.  We love some good food.  In fact, we are a little obsessed.  Come into the offices  or walk up to our service desks anytime and  if you should happen upon 2 of us chances are pretty good that you will hear us discussing what we had for dinner, or what we are going to have for dinner.  Monday conversations are devoted to not only what we read/watched, but also what we ate/prepared over the weekend.   We are about food the way some workplaces are about the weekend’s big game or the TV show everyone is currently obsessed over.  Good recipes are meant to be shared, and then tweaked and shared again.   In fact, a former coworker once said that it should be an employment requirement; the ability to cook something delicious and then share the recipe (Alison H. I am looking at you!).  Did you really think it was a coincidence that Erin always features a glorious, gorgeous new cookbook for her Fall Meet the Author series?  A bunch us are sharing CSA shares and having the best time getting the e-mail on Tuesday from Erin clueing us into what we have to look forward to.  The cool news here?  You can join in!  On our Tumblr feed we have been featuring what we have been cooking and enjoying complete with pictures. Yes, the Traveling Companion is being made to ‘sing for his supper’ by photographing my CSA dinners.  I feel it’s a small price to pay.  I think he does too.  This week we have Arson, Grand Central, a brutal murder (is there any other kind?), Vicodin, professional sabotage, and some Iowa. The Playlist?  As they say in the Mid-West “You betcha!”


Let us begin!
