October 2008 Blog Posts (33)

Until I integrate a blogging module into my personal website...

I think that I won't be able to even consider keeping up with a blog. It's not that I don't write a lot - I do that - but I find that I am responding to posts - or updating the blog for a class I teach - not creating new topics. So until I figure out how to work that into my day, I think I will just read and respond to posts and blogs as they appear on my monitor.

But - to close the circle - an update on my mom - she is doing pretty well! Knee replacement has healed up completely.… Continue

I had a few days...(Booth Build part 1)

..So, in addition to studying and working with my acting, I started a booth. I did not start taking pictures till I had the bottom built, but I think the narrative thread is still there. I'll post a few more as I move it further along. I got some plans from DAWBOX, but I have modified them quite a bit. They were an excellent springboard, though, and well worth the 50 bucks.

Mine is 4x6', has a window on the right side, will be carpeted, (I have a burgundy carpet piece, but I may go… Continue

Got that Imaging Bug and starting to do something about it.

Let's see next January I will have been away from radio 2 years. That was my career for 10. I always felt like I knew it so well and that I should be able to be an IMAGING VOICE!

However up until now not much has come my way. My bread and sometimes butter is in Commercial work.

However recently I met up with a voice talent named Jeremy Ryan. That's what he does mostly. I sent him some dry tracks and low and behold the demos sound great. We have teamed up and hopefully 2009… Continue

Philip and Simon

As usual, my friend Philip Banks knocks it "out of the park" (to use a US sport analogy) with his blog post of 21 October 2008 asking you to imagine yourself standing in front of Simon Cowell getting ready to perform.

New demos!!

I have just added new versions of my two commercials demos and a new narration demo to integrate some new material.
It's a bit daunting because I have parked my demos on quite a few internet sites, each of which has somewhat different protocols.
Now my VU page is up to date along with my personal website and all the sites around the world.
OK seekers -- come and get me!!!

I Speak Analog. You Hear Digital

There’s an interesting article by John Higgins on the John and Muriel Higgins Home page. The article is entitled, “I Speak Analogue, You Hear Digital” and you can find it at the following link: http://myweb.tiscali.co.uk/wordscape/wordlist/analogue.html

Check out the digital speaking test and the supra-segmentals section. The latter section relates to how pausing can change the meaning of a sentence. The article contains some good practice materials.

Correction on equipment

Hey peeps,
I have been getting some great invitations to hot tub and butter and rice parties as result of lising my equipment as 8 inches. I should have been more specific. I meant my UVULA.
Hope this clears up a terrible misundertanding, although I have made some swell friends in the interim.

What Do You Call Your Studio?

Do you Have a Nickname for your studio?

Don LaFontaine used to call his recording studio a "Hole" while others decide to bestow a slightly more endearing name to their place of voice preservation.

What have you decided to call yours?

Leave a comment here and I'll add it to the conversation already going on at VOX Daily. If you want to head over there now to read what others are saying… Continue

My first promo for the ITV network, here in the UK

Recently I read a promo for the ITV network. I'm thrilled as it's the biggest after the BBC. This is a fairly big file, so please give it time to download.

The only singing impression that I can do (other than Willy Nelson) is Neil Diamond. I thought it might be funny if Neil sang some songs that were ...let's say ...a little out of his element.

I am not personally a huge fan of the Hip/Hop genre ...though with three teenagers ...I have been inadvertently over-exposed. I must admit ...after playing around with this clip ...I have a new respect for the hip and for the hop. And it made me realize that I am neither…

FRAGILE...Yup that's us

Julies post got me thinking about how close we are all to life changing and ending moments. I wrote this for a online magazine awhile ago. SOME of you have read this story, please excuse me, but I thought I'd share just one more time...What you're about to read is 100% TRUE....

I decided to leave a 25 year radio career and work following my dream as a Stand-Up Comic. Things were going quite well, but every time I turned around, businesses were asking me to voice their… Continue
