Good morning! I hope everyone had a nifty weekend. I went camping for
the first time in thirteen years! The weather was perfect and both the
food & friends were plentiful. I had a fantastic time, but I caught
my cabin mate's cold. Nothing a little juice & Vitamin C can't fix!
So, last week I was exploring Twitter (looking for VO work) and I stumbled upon this article:
I sympathized with this guy because, like him, I was cast in Red Dead
Redemption but my character was cut (but you can hear me at Benedict
Point reciting some extra lines like "This place is deader than a side
For me, it's a funny story and I enjoyed it since I went on a similar
ride. For others, it's a peak into the VO world, at least a small
portion of it. Either way, it's a "slice of life" story and I find it
fascinating how people can take different things away from the same
TIP OF THE WEEK:
Two things struck me when I read this article.
- These things happen and in the long run it's no big deal.
- People who comment online can be really, really mean!
Holy socks, some of these people were downright vicious. I'm a geek and
these nerds (yes, there is a difference!) give us a bad name. My advice
is cliche but still holds true: if you have nothing nice to say, don't
say anything at all. Especially in a public domain like the Internet.
QUOTE OF THE WEEK:
Irony is hypocrisy with style. From the film “Looking for Richard”
I do my best to be positive and constructive here on the
Good Karma Network, so please forgive me. I interact with the kind of
people who posted those negative comments all the time at my friend's
hobby store, so I know what makes them tick. One thing I can't stand is
when a bunch of socially inept dorks viciously attack someone with no
cause and skulk about in online anonymity. Just because they scored
higher on standardized tests then most of us doesn't give them the right
to write horrible things about people they don't even know. It's not my
fault they'll never know a woman's touch! In short, these
non-contributing zeros can go **** in their hat.
