Got one.

Props to all you nasty, little boys who taunted me with "Clark Bar" at recess.

Promotional highlighter pens coming soon - will the excitement never end?

"I'm unavailable.

I'm unavailable.

Please don't leave a message.

Are there goals that I might aim for now

If I knew just when I'd die and how?

Would I put my appetites in check?

Would I salvage anything I've wrecked?

Would I focus on important things

Or just take what inattention… Continue

Voice Emporium Centennial Post

(please note this post was written for the 100th post on my blog Taji's Voice Emporium that is not hosted on Voice Over Universe.)

Welcome.... To Taji's Voice Emporium Centennial Post. Honestly I didn't think you guys would stick with me that long. From the onset of Taji's Voice Emporium Blog ... the plan was that if people didn't seem to get into my posts... that I would scrap it after the 100th post. Things have taken a happy yet… Continue

Words of Power

I was thinking today that for my 99th post in my Voice Emporium Blog I wanted to make it special. I wrote up a nice chunk about my history... then deleted it. Who cares what my history is... I'm 34 and God is still throwing me curve balls left and right to test my Mettle.

What I wanted to bring to your attention today is a focus on the amount of power we wield. In 1839 Edward Bulwer-Lytton… Continue

Voice Over Training in Detroit

Well, another Event has passed - this time with Pamela Lewis (fantastico) and Eric Head guesting (another fantastico) and I believe I'm doing something really good for Detroit Talent - trying to feed the hunger so to speak with some banquet feasts of professional talent/teachers. Sherri Berger from Chicago will return this fall and Pat Fraley may be bringing one or two of his amazing VO Events to Detroit this August. Pamela and I are already discussing what different types of voice over… Continue

You know you've arrived when you get stomped out by the best.

So, I'm on an audition. I think there are only two of us called. I arrive early, look over the copy, make my notes. The only direction, is light and friendly. I'm a bit suspicious because it's for the annnouncer part. So I do my thing and think I'm all good.

Another guys walks in. I intro myself. He's says," I'm G. Keith Alexander." The quake of his voice still resonates through my socks. In fact, I don't remember having as many holes in my socks as did whenI left the audition.

My… Continue

What's Your Greatest VO Success Story?

Hi there,

I hope all is well with you. Sorry it has been a little while since I last updated my blog here at VU.

What have you been up to lately? Any good news you would like to share? Perhaps you've landed a huge gig of late that you can't wait to tell everyone about, that is, unless you've signed a non-disclosure agreement!

Regardless of where you've found success, I'd love to hear about it. If it was through Voices.com, I'd really love to hear about it… Continue

Flash Vs. SEO - How Should You Build Your Website

G'day Mates!

Today's post might seem a little technical... but the theory and issues behind it are pretty straight forward. It was inspired by my current Casting Site Directory project and this problem has caused me numerous issues while compiling the directory.

The Voice Artists Portal

One of the most important marketing tools for the Modern Voiceover artist in our day and age is a well designed and informative website. This is your portal on the interweb and a means… Continue
