You know you're a voice talent when:

1. You have a chronic case of headphone hair.

2. You catch yourself repeating lines you hear in commercials.

3. You believe mouth ticks can kill you.

4. A one take is like a hole in one.

5. You know what it means to rock the mic.

6. You've done a few takes and then realized you weren't recording.

7. You hate P words.

8. You plan to do this for the rest of your life.

9. You wear quiet clothes.

10. You think a great mic is the Holy Grail.

Love it! Right on! May I add a few?


2. A. You know every slug line for every advertiser past and present.

2. B. You sing jingles and the "Intel chime" and the like, when you hear spots.

2. C. You find yourself practicing disclaimers "taxes additional, price and participation may vary, limited time offer."

Heh, heh, heh!!!




...and one of my favorites in car commercials:  "Only one available at this price."

11. The new client says he has another job for you.

Hi Dan -  What a humorous blog!  I really have to remember to take off the bangle bracelets!

You are spot on with this one.  Thanks for the smiles.

Haha!! Awesome

12. Your office is a spare bedroom...your breakroom is the living room and the employee cafeteria is your kitchen where you enjoy water cooler chat with your dog :)

13. It's 2pm and after a long day of work you realize you are still in your PJ's

Yup!  And I still can't figure out how the employee bathroom keeps getting locked!!!
By the way, that reminds me... Am I the only one that can hear background noise or noise only reserved for a dog's ear?

Ah yes...truer words were never spoken!  (hate headphone hair, for sure!!!) Made me laugh today...

One other addition to your list...You haven't seen the top of your desk for some time now, since it's completely covered with worked over scripts and notes, and ...whatever else you needed in the last century.

Boy!  Isn't that the truth about the covered desk!!!  Mine's a mess.  It's embarrassing!  Looks like a paper mill threw up.




You know you're a voice talent when people tell you they heard you on the radio or TV. And then you just smile and say, yes, that was me.

Number 2 addict here!
