Working double duty

Normally when I do voiceover work, I work from scripts given to me by my clients. But in a bit of a test of my abilities, I both wrote and voiced the following one.

Putting a face with the voice

For about the past 15 years or so, it's been the case that more people know my voice than my face. But never has it been more true than it is right now.

I did some math the other day. The top 8 YouTube channels I voice have a combined 1.2 million subscribers. And for most of those channels, I do multiple videos per day. Occasionally, people seek me out from the tag at the end of the video. Sometimes, they find me on YouTube. But if you came here wondering if I'm "that guy." Yeah. That's me. And the following video is for you.

Thank you for your time. Now get back to YouTube!

The First Purge looks like a fun way to make movies great again

This looks great. I loved the first three Purge movies ... and the studio's decision to make this prequel "topical" is quite clever. Of course, if you read the comments, a lot of people are butthurt about it. "Leave politics out of movies" seems to sum it up. I'm always amused at all of the "leave politics out of 'x'" comments. And frankly, I don't get it. Put your SOUL into your work. And if your soul is political, then put that shit into your art. Or whatever. But for some, only business owners can be political (think Papa John's or Hobby Lobby). Now, personally, I won't spend money at Papa John's or Hobby Lobby. Because I don't want to fund something I disagree with. And if you disagree with the "politics" of this, then, by all means, don't go to see it. But if you truly think this is "political" (as opposed to being cleverly topical), then I've got a bridge to sell you.
