Have you lost your edge?

  • We all know Tiger Wood’s has seen beter days…but when will Tiger get it back? When issues that impact us from a negative action take a toll, I believe it is a smart thing to take a break.  Tiger is trying out a new swing these days that apparently needs time to adjust.  Perhaps we can learn something here…Maybe we need to step back review and try a new swing!  What worked before, may not be what the market calls for now.  How are you doing? Getting back…

Could This Be The ONE?

You have probably collected more than a few pieces of audio hardware as a voice actor.  After all, we are always looking for that special something that will make our voices sing!  Apogee is hoping the ONE is the single piece of kit you will use in your Mac-based recording studio.


The ONE is a compact USB microphone and digital audio interface.  And with a 2.25” x 4.75” footprint it is actually small enough to fit in your pocket.  But you probably would not want to do that…

Tim Allen - Pure Michigan - Behind the VO

We all get clients who are looking for the the "Pure Michigan - Tim Allen" read.  


A friend just interviewed him for radio and Tim said that he got the Chevy and Campell's Soup campaigns because those clients wanted the "Pure Michigan" guy.  It just happened to be him.  This leads me to believe that it really is ALL ABOUT THE READ.  


May we all find our "Pure Michigan" type niche.

Taji's Embarassing Twitter Confessions

Its not like twitter is a new technology... its been around for a while now and I figured that the best way to get insights about using twitter was from voice actors who had tried and true methods. So I wrote a blog post a few weeks back expecting tons of input... funny enough I didn't get a peep out of anyone! Well except one person who said they were just as excited to see answers to her twitter related questions as I was.


But no one said anything so here is what I did.. I…
