Voice Coaches Radio #431 – Summer Ramble Part 2 – Fireworks, An Engagement, and the Special Sauce

Voice Coaches Radio, everything voiceover. And

welcome into this week's edition of Voice Coaches Radio. I am Josh. He is Sam. We are delighted to have you joining us. here this morning. How we doing, Sam? Doing great. I feel a little slap happy, Josh. I am doing great. It is all right. For those, I mean, obviously, uh, we record these, we pre record these and it is, uh, the day after the 4th of July.

Yes, it is. July 5th. So, uh, that is a Friday. Uh, and, uh, and it's confusing day. It's a confusing day because yesterday, yeah, I thought yesterday was the weekend. I tried to take out my garbage last night. Uh, my wife told me Why? Uh, which is a good, good reason. What are you doing? I mean, it's, I'm very, very confused as to what day it is, what time it is.

It's hot outside. It's muggy. It is super hot outside. Yeah. Yeah. Oh my gosh. But you know what? It is, uh, it is, it is podcast. Voice coaches radio time. That's what time it is. That's where we are. Voice coaches radio time. And so, uh, so thank you for taking some time out of your day. Hopefully everyone had a very happy, healthy, safe 4th of July.

Hopefully all digits and phalanges are, uh, all there and accounted for. Um, Because, you know, it's 4th of July. Are you suggest Oh, I, I get it, I get it. Losing your fingers from a firecracker. That would be, yes, that would be what I'm referring to. I was like, are you, are people cutting off their fingers? Is that a thing?

What is going on? Not that, that I'm not, that I'm aware of. What kind of crazy, crazy shenanigans are kids doing. I mean, they might be, I have no idea. It's true. They might be. The three year-olds aren't doing that good. So, so I can tell you that much. That's good. That's good. But, uh, no, it's, uh, yeah, anything, uh, do anything fun For the fourth we went swimming.

You know, we have a friend who had a pool, so we went like it was. We actually went swimming for a couple hours, which is a blast. I forget how much I love to swim. I used to swim all the time as a kid. I, I love it. Had so much fun. But that's about it. Honestly, we took the rest of the day easy. Outside of my dog freaking out at all of our neighbors exploding every particle known to mankind.

My dog was having a hard time with that, but otherwise we just chilled. We, uh, we, when I lived in Ohio Uh, we live right next door to, uh, a minor league baseball stadium for the Toledo Mudhens play, uh, the triple a team of Detroit and, and they used to set off fireworks pretty much once a week because if you've ever worked in minor league baseball, firework days are, I mean, it is, I have no idea if people don't see fireworks on a regular basis or don't know about them, but like they literally plan their day, like plan their schedule around what we're going to have It's gonna be our firework day, so we're gonna have a big crowd.

And I'm like, why? It's fireworks. And they're like, you don't understand. And they were right, I didn't understand. It is crazy. But anyway, uh, so they would fire them off, and like I said, we, we, we, our apartment building was right next door, and the way that, um, that, that our apartment kind of, it almost looked like an H.

Right? The apartment, if you looked at it from above. Hmm. And where we were was right in one of the little indents, and so the fireworks would go off and literally just reverberate in that little indentation, uh, to the point where if you weren't ready for it, it literally sounded like apocalypse. It was.

It, it was mortifying. Absolutely mortifying. I did see something though that, um, some people actually took, uh, took time off on the 4th and spent the evening in, uh, uh, animal shelters comforting the dogs that would get scared from the fireworks. And I'm like, that is, that's really nice. I like that. Yeah, that's really nice.

As a dog lover, I approve of that. Yeah. Because my dog He's gotten so much better. Truthfully, like, last 4th of July, he would not come out from under the bed. Like, he I I could not get him I I would have hot I would literally cut up hot dogs, and be like, hey buddy, and like, I would try to coerce him out, which usually works.

Didn't work. He was not having any of it. He wouldn't come out from under the bed. This time, he actually kind of slept until, like, really loud ones would go off, and then he'd freak out, and then he'd calm down again, and I could calm him down, but That's nice. I like that. That's good. I'm down with that.

That's uh, go to your local shelter and take care of the dogs. Yeah. Yeah. Because they are terrified of that. And understandably so they don't get it. Understandably. So I don't, I guess I don't, I don't fully, I mean, I like fireworks. Don't get me wrong, but I guess I don't fully understand them. We can keep in mind where I'm from in Massachusetts.

Fireworks are illegal. Uh, very, very much illegal. So like when you're driving around here in New York, you'll see, uh, you know, all over the place, the malls and the parking lots. They're set up the big tents for them. Um, but in, in, in Massachusetts and other states also, but in Massachusetts, it's, they're illegal.

Like if you and people used to go up into New Hampshire and, and yeah. Get them and come back down, and if they catch you with that, there's jail time involved. Like, they ain't messin around. And so I never, you know, shot off fireworks myself. I'd go see them, but I guess I never really fully understood the, uh, the appeal.

Yeah, you know, one thing I keep thinking about, too, it's like, if we, okay, the Fourth of July, right? We're celebrating our independence from Britain, and if we were shooting off fire And the rockets red glare Exactly. Now, if we were doing that, and we're at war Keep going. If we're at war, it seems like a really bad strategy to be blowing up your ammunition, like, Ah, yes, we'll get those Brits!

Poof! Oh, man, that went off in the air again. Didn't hit a target anywhere. Well, and it's one of those things where, like, it literally mortifies dogs. Yep. And cats. My cat was not a fan. I'm sure. Um, I, I, I, there are, there are people that I've known that, that literally have PTSD from them. Oh, I don't doubt it.

And I, I can't, obviously I can't imagine that myself, but like, you know, what, what, what is the benefit? Oh, they're pretty. Okay, cool. Cool. Actually, true story. Uh, uh, yesterday I saw a, a video yesterday morning. So this would be July 4th morning, uh, down in, um, uh, in South Carolina, of course, uh, upstate South Carolina.

a fireworks store caught on fire. Oh, no. And literally, you can see just fireworks just shooting out of the stores. I think it was in Fort Mills, South Carolina. If you get a chance, check it out. Fascinating to one. I mean, I'm sure it's not good. I mean, I know it's not good. It's bad, but I mean, it was, it was pretty, I'll give it that.

Yeah, I'm sure it was amazing. It was pretty, but like, that's, that's crazy. Like I was like, what would happen if a fireworks place got on fire? Well, it did. It did in South Carolina. So check it out. It was pretty cool video. I'll check that out. I don't think anyone got hurt. I don't think anyone got hurt. So we can, we can say like, Oh, it was, it was cool.

Check it out. I didn't really look at the video that much. I just watched it. Yeah. Fireworks. Fireworks. So some fireworks went off in your life. Oh yes. That was a segue. My God. Wow. Yeah. That was a huge explosion. Segway and a half. Segway and a half. Um, but uh, some big, big, big news in the, in the booty household.

Yeah. The booty household has gotten a little more of a, become a little more of an of a household. We're gonna have another booty. We're gonna have another booty, but we're not pregnant yet. No, no, no, no, no. But I am engaged now. My girlfriend and I got engaged. And, oh, thank you, thank you, thank you. Yes, I am.

Your fiancé. My fiancé now, with two E's. Get that right. Uh, yeah, exactly. No, this is true. I keep, um, I keep messing this up. I'm even, like, I'm even holding my finger right now. My left, my left, uh, ring finger. There's nothing on it yet, but I'm like, yep, that's, that's what's gonna happen. But yeah, we're getting, we got engaged on her birthday, end of June.

And it was great. We had a, we had a wonderful time. It was, it was awesome. We went down to the city for a couple days. We took a, an engagement honeymoon. I don't know if there's a name for that. I don't know what you'd call that, but we, yeah, we're ready. We're super excited. But I, Josh, I don't even know if I've told you all the whole scope of it.

It's been a roller coaster since like, we, uh, getting a, it's been over a week now, week and a half that I've been engaged and it's just, it's been great. You've Thousand times. Tons of unsolicited advice. Oh, yeah. Oh, god. That's going to happen. A lot of opinions from different family members that have been, uh, challenging to navigate.

It's, it's, it's great. That's not going to change, by the way. Oh, I'm sure. Any time soon. I'm sure. So, but we're very, very happy. I, I'm so happy. I'm, I'm, I'm happy for, uh, for you and for, and for Jocelyn. Thank you. we have to get her on the show. You know, we've actually have to get Joss on the show. She would be hysterical.

If you want to talk about true crime, she would kill it. I'd say that's about 50 percent of what we talk about. This is true. This is true. I bring in a lot of that information that I've learned from her. P. S. Stranger things three came out. Oh, did you watch it? No, I haven't yet. So we wanted to watch the first and the second seasons again before watching the third.

Clearly that that did not happen. That's a lot. And so then yesterday Uh, my wife is like, okay, well, should we start watching it? I'm like, I still kind of want to watch the first and the second ones again before we start watching it, which is daunting because like, even trying to watch the third one is daunting just with schedule wise, um, that's a lot of time commitment and time is not something we have a plethora of.

What? What do you mean? Do you have a kid or something? Something like that. Something like that. So like when she gets done from like putting him to bed, it's like 10 o'clock. And like, I'm like, eh, yeah, we could watch an episode or, or we could go to bed. Yeah, it's late. And it's sometimes that wins. I'm not gonna lie.

Sometimes that wins. But, um, but no, seriously, congratulations. Thank you. You know, I, I don't know Jocelyn too, too well, but we've, uh, we've spent some time together and she is, uh, uh, she is a delight. And she loves your wife too. That's true. That's really true. And that was, that was at the Christmas party.

That was when they first met. They first met and like, literally didn't talk to anybody else the whole night. And I was like, Oh, I hope they get along. And then I look, I think I turned to you, Sam. I was like, Oh, I guess we're friends now. So cool. That's all right. And literally they make plans for us. Like, yeah.

Oh, we're gonna get together this weekend. Yep. Okay. Yeah. Yeah. Alright, sure. And like, I think you and I like popped in like, Did you know we were hanging out this weekend? Like, uh, no, I did not know that. Alright. Jocelyn told me that we were, and she said that she talked to Alex, and I don't know. Fair, I'm just like, okay, cool.

And she met Alex, too. The one thing that she said that I thought was hysterical, she was like, Alex is a real woman. Like, she is a real Honest to God woman, which Jocelyn loved, like she's, uh, Jocelyn's the best. She's the absolute best. I am biased. She is my fiance. But, but like, it's just, uh, it is so true to her to say that, like, she just, I can see why they got along too.

Like they are just. Authentic, real people. And you know the problem with that though is I can't stand you. So that's going to be problematic. Oh, yeah. There's the punch right there. Speaking of real people, here's a segway that we can actually introduce voiceover with. Yeah, here we go. This is something that we like, we've been talking about life right now.

We've been talking about events going on in the world. We've been talking about fireworks. We've been talking about all these things in this podcast so far. I am a huge believer more and more. The more that I do this, like I, I know this is going to shock Josh, but I am not a perfect person. Like I am not perfect.

I am wonderfully flawed to you. Maybe, maybe. And thank you, Josh. I appreciate that. I cut you down so I can bring you back up. It works. That's why I keep coming back. I just want to keep that that high of being brought back up. It's so healthy. We got a really healthy thing going on here. But what I, when you're doing voiceover, like so much of the mechanics, we got to, you know, we, we talk about all the time, but really what we want is real people.

And this is not a line that we say we really want real people. This is something I was telling you about. There's this gentleman who might start working here in the near future. Who's an audio expert. And he is working on the forefront of voice production. And what I mean by that is he actually creates voices electronically and I've heard some of his products and they're really interesting and funny and good, but they're like.

80 percent they sound like 80 percent like a human being. They don't sound fully human because this is like this quality. It's like, Oh, that sounds like a human being. And then it doesn't. And it's weird and jarring. And like, this is where technology is going and there's a lot. But what they have not been able to replicate while they can replicate technically the voice, they can't replicate humanity.

They can't replicate like all of the nuances of an individual. And I know for me, like the Matrix is starting right now, I guess. This is getting, this is getting real, this is getting real. But like, this is like, when I'm doing voiceover, more often than not, the person I talk to the most is Jocelyn. You know what I mean?

Like, I will pick, I will be like, I'm talking to Jocelyn and I'm reading this copy on the page and I'm solving her problem, whatever that might be. And that brings so much to the table. And that's for my life. I'm just pulling that little piece out of my actual life. And that's what I get to play. And that's what makes things really compelling.

So how do you make a compelling read? Live your life. Uh, what's his name? Oh god, what the actor? This is his line. Um, from the Godfather. He's the Robert Duvall. Robert Duvall had this thing about being an actor. Consigliere? Consigliere. I was like, Consigliere, uh, Consigliore, something like that. Is that what it is?

That's his title. Consigliere. Consigliere? Yeah, like the counselor to Marlon Brando. He always said, be human first. And like, this is what we've got to remember. So it might seem silly. I know we're kind of all over the place this Holiday, but we have to be human first bring that to the table because that's what you knew like authentically and uniquely can deliver That nobody else can touch like I can't be Josh as much as I tried day in and day out.

I can't do it Trust me. You're better off for it. I Try to pick things up and I'm like Come on! And then Josh is over there like with one finger like, Oh yeah, I got this rock. Sup homie, no big deal. Ain't no thang. Oh yo, that's heavy for you. Look at this. I throw it and I catch it with my other hand. That's Josh.

I can't do that. I can't do that. But, it, what he can do, uh, he, what he brings to the table is unique to him and it's awesome. That is, that's the special sauce. That's what I'm going for. There's my, there's my voiceover pitch for the, for the day. Two All beef Patty's cheese, fresh sauce, cheese, pickles on sauce, burger burgers.

Right. Brought it back to the 4th of July. Now we can go back to the 4th of July too. Yeah. Um, no, no, you're you're absolutely right. And it's funny, you know, just the, the, you know, chewing the fat, shooting the bull, whatever we were doing for the first majority of this podcast, , um, I would say the majority of our podcast.

All every episode you mean? Uh, but I mean, that's, that's the tone that you want. Yes. That's literally the, the tone that you want, like Yeah, we're just kind of. I kind of John back and forth, but if you can have that, that same tone, that same feel when you're reading something that is, that is what we're looking for.

That's the gold ticket. Yeah, right. Special sauce. Golden ticket. I got a golden ticket. So basically what we're telling you is when you get set to do an audition or you get set to do a piece, exhaust yourself to the point where you can barely stay awake up. Start to hallucinate, uh, and then, uh, and then, and then, you know, just, uh, just go with it and magical happen, magical happen, let life happen and then magic will happen.

Totally. Totally. This is amazing. This is good. This is good advice. This is, this is a really good advice. Like this is going to turn out badly for us. By the way, don't do that. I'll be just kidding. That's not, don't do that. I don't want to get any phone call. Like I was so tired and I started yawning in the middle of my audition and it's your fault and like, yeah, don't do that.

Don't do that. But bring yourself to the table. Like, bring yourself to the table. This is why I always go back to that everyday superhero metaphor, because it's like, I want you, but it's you plus a little bit more, right? Like, it's you solving a problem. It's you doing something. It's you, but better. It's not just you on a tired day, yawning me like, I'm, I have so many hair.

Oh, well, okay. Now I'm going to yawn, dude. That's not okay. That's not okay. And now, I'm curious how many of our listeners just yawned. I'm also curious if we still have any listeners. And I'm also pretty sure that when they listen to us, they yawn more often than not anyways. That's the sound of fireworks.

But those are all of our few listeners that are disappearing. Yeah. Yeah. I don't know. There was no metaphor there. It's okay. Yeah. It's okay. It's one of those days. They really is. They can't all be winners, guys. They can't all be winners. All right. But this is fun, though. This is really fun. And this is what you do with the table, too.

It is for us. Yeah, it's true. Is it for them? I hope so. I hope so. I don't know. I aim for it to be fun for them. That is my goal. To make it fun for you, dear listeners. Yes. My goal is to make it fun for me. And if they have fun, great. If not great, whatever. I had an improv teacher in college who firmly believed that if you could, she was like, don't worry about the audience.

Don't worry about anyone else. Don't worry about the producer, your director. If you are having fun, everyone else will have fun. So you worry about having fun first. I think it's great advice. Looking out for number one. Yeah. Looking out for number one. Again, this is why I'm trying to be like Josh, you know, not only picking things up, number one, not heavy things up.

I'm trying to just pick up these rocks. I want to just look out for number one because I'm always looking out for number two. Which is Josh, and so everyone is looking out for him. Who does number two work for? I don't know. It's an Austin Powers joke, guys. Is it? Oh. Guys, it's an Austin Powers joke. It's been a while since I've seen that movie.

Oh, classic. Yeah. Classic. Yeah, it's been a while. Classic movie. Um. Yeah. So, oh, uh, quick updates. Yes. Oh, yes. The book. Yes. We're going to talk about the book, Josh. So I know that, uh, the last week we, we talked about, uh, the potential for, uh, for an audiobook and I did get the approval, uh, for one of the two books that I, uh, that I read for.

Um, this one is, it's called Own Your Eating and I'll keep you guys updated as we go along, but I'm going to, I was hoping to actually start recording it this week that, uh, schedule wise didn't work out, but, uh, definitely gonna, gonna be starting into the next week or so. And, uh, and I will be sure to keep you all up to date on how that goes and on the processes and things like that.

I worked out a, uh, kind of a, hammered out an agreement where each chapter I'm going to send to them to listen and approve. Uh, before, you know, we do any kind of, uh, uh, editing and mastering here. Um, and then, uh, and then, and then kind of go from there. We're gonna, we're, we're, all, all of us are kind of flying by the seat of our pants a little bit.

Um, but that's okay. We'll figure it out as we go along. We will figure it out as we go along. And, uh, the other book, I did, uh, I did redo a couple, uh, audition pieces for that, uh, and sent that in, and that is currently being sent to, uh, to John North, who is the, uh, the weightlifter that the book is about, um, for him to, to listen to, and, uh, and to, to give his thoughts on, and See whether or not, uh, they want to push forward on that or not.

So I'm kind of waiting to hear back on that one. But, uh, like I said, I'll keep you posted on that as well. But the other one I have gotten to go ahead and, uh, and, uh, hopefully we'll be starting that soon. And, and like I said, I'm going to take you guys along with me because we're learning on the job here and that's, and that's okay.

That's, I hope that's okay. And that's what's happening. That's, that's absolutely okay. That's super exciting. And the thing is you already, you've got the job, you know what I mean? Like you don't have to prove anything. You are just going to now do a good job. Do you know what I'm saying? That's the idea.

That's the idea. Uh, also updates. I ran a 10k couple weeks ago. Um, so, so that was the, so 10k are in the books in my running, uh, in Josh's summer of running. Um, so I, I, I remember when we made our, our New Year's. What do we call them? We didn't call them resolutions. We call them, uh, I don't know. I'm blanking.

New Year's. Hopefully, I do these things. Um, I was going to do a five, a ten, a fifteen, a half, and a full. Yeah, something like that. Yeah. Um, and, uh, so the five Ks in the books, the ten Ks in the books was a trail run out in Lennox, Mass. Uh, right by, right by Tanglewood. Really, really pretty out there. Wow. Uh, and the 15k is coming up next weekend actually.

And, uh, whoo, don't feel prepared for that one, but, uh, that'll be, uh, that'll be the Boilermaker out in Utica, New York. Wow. Uh, and, uh, yeah, that'll, that'll, uh, that'll, that'll be next, next, next Sunday. So a week from this Sunday, uh, the 14th of July. And, uh, so by the time you guys are hearing this, I will either have already done it or we'll be dead.

Uh, right now it's 50 50. Right now it's 50 50. If you just hear my voice in the future, you'll know what happened to Josh. Right now it's 50 50. Uh, so I will, uh, I'll let you know how that one goes and, uh, and what kind of condition I'm in when we're done. Hi, welcome to Voice Coaches Radio. I am Sam. Uh, Josh has passed away and, uh, Well, I have nothing to talk about.

Didn't make that 15k. So that's, uh, that's coming up. And for those of you non metric people, that's about 9. 3 miles, give or take. Which, why are we not in the metric system in the US? Oh my gosh, it's never gonna happen. Like, don't get me wrong, I don't want to have to, I don't want to have to relearn everything, because that'd be, that'd be a pain, and like, all my references are, are, are based off that.

But, but, the metric system is legitimately a million times easier. Much better, yeah. Like, it's a million times easier. Like, how many, uh, how many meters is in a kilometer? A thousand. How do you know that? Because it literally says a thousand meters. That's the name. Okay, well, how many feet are in a, uh, are in a mile?

I have no idea. Five thousand something or rather. Yeah. Like, it's arbitrary. It's arbitrary. It's not going to happen. It's arbitrary. Like, we should But it's not going to change. No, it definitely isn't. Because, again, all my references are, are, are based off that. It'd be super pain. But, but like, It doesn't, like, it makes no sense, and it's not like we're like, well, you know, most people, no, we don't, like, is it, does any, is there, I think there's like one other country that doesn't use the metric system.

I have no idea which country that might be. I don't know, but like, but why, why, why? I don't know. I mean, I don't want to have to figure out what kilometers per hour is because I definitely don't know, but I feel like we're, we're kind of behind the times here. I'm trying to think if my car actually converts it naturally.

I don't know if it does. I was, when we were driving in Montreal, it became apparent to me. I think maybe we were taking Jocelyn's actually had a rental car. I can't recall. Uh, but whatever car I was looking at, after the fact, I didn't realize it when we were in Montreal. It was only when I got back to the States, I was like, oh my god.

This whole time. like the inner circle was kilometers. Yeah. Most, most are like that. They have a little, at least a little, um, the only thing I know is that like a hundred kilometers per hour is like 60 and change miles per hour. I see because usually the speed limit is a hundred kilometers per hour. Uh, so that's where I, where I, where I did that math.

I mean, I used to go to Canada all the time when I was working with a hockey team and, and I would never know what to do for the thermostat in the room. Now, most thermostats, I will say most of the thermostats actually can do it. degrees or Fahrenheit instead of Celsius, um, because of us Americans who come there.

But in general, like I was like, Oh God, I don't, I don't, I don't know what's going to like. It's going to be a balmy 30 degrees outside. I'm like, what does that mean? Is that hot? Is that cool? I don't know. I don't know. And I like to keep my hotel room like chilly. I like ice cold. Oh God. Yeah. But I don't know what that means.

Like I know zero is freezing. So I want it above zero. Um, that's it. That's all I got for you. Uh, that's all I got. I, I, I, I don't know. I want it above zero and below like a hundred. So somewhere in the middle, there's is where I'm looking for, but like one, just write one, you know, like I, I, I get up for number one, zero number one, zero references about this zero reference.

I had to take out my phone and figure it out. And like, I felt sad and I was like, man, I got to figure this out. I'm sorry. It felt sad. I, you know, my whole goal in life is to protect you from feeling sad. Thanks, man. I appreciate that. You're welcome. I appreciate that. Looking out for number one. Yeah. Am I number one?

I don't know. What does it take to be number one? Two is not a winner in three. Nobody remembers. I don't know this song. What is this? Hey, hey, hey. I think it's called number one. I don't know. It's good. It's like Nelly. I think I'm taking it way back guys. Here's the deep cuts. These are the deep cuts. I'm assuming nobody's listening anymore.

So I'm fine with it. So I'm fine with it. I also haven't rapped on Mike in a while. Be like Josh, be yourself, rap on Nelly. This is great, this is good. This is all things you can apply to your voice acting career. It's funny that you bring it up though, because that is legitimately what this podcast is.

It's just us being ourselves. But the tone that we have in these podcasts Podcast is what you'd like to have when someone's reading. Yeah, that's the quality. Sure. Maybe I talk too fast when I'm doing the podcast, but like outside of that, the quality is definitely what I know when you're directing, this is very much what you try to go for when you're producing.

You're like, you want to get people in this state of like super comfortable, super casual and just having a good time. That's the goal. It really is. That's a great point, Josh. I'm really glad that you brought it back to that note. That's, that is so pivotal, because what, how do you do that? Well, you talk to somebody, and Josh and I have a great time talking to each other, and this is why we can bring in all these other elements, and you can do that with your voiceover work.

Like, it doesn't just have to be the words on the page. You can bring yourself to the table, and that is critical. Yeah, and the other person that you're talking to, quote unquote, is obviously not there. Right. Right. But you are, you know, you're manufacturing that. You're creating that. Yeah. Um, and look, is it ever going to be as good as an actual two person, you know, tête à tête?

Probably not. Probably not, but it's going to be a heck of a lot closer, that's for sure. Pretty darn close, yeah. Heck of a lot closer. And that's ultimately what we're talking about. But we're, yeah, what we're going for. So, keep it casual. Yeah. Love it. Be yourself. It's good. Yeah. Be yourself, have fun, and, and just do it.

Go find yourself a Sam. Go find yourself. You can't have this one. This one's spoken for now. Ah, yes, that's true. This one's spoken for now. If you're not in front of the ring on it. Da da da da da da da, ring on it. Oh, oh, that's happening now. That's happening. For those of you who can't see what's happening here because that's all of you, Um, actually I can't, my back is turned to see right now, but I'm assuming you're dancing.

Absolutely. Are you kidding? I'm assuming you got that, that little hand, hand move. Uh, uh, uh, uh, uh, uh. Have you, have you ever seen the SNL version of where it's, um, uh, Andy Samberg and, um, Oh, who else is, I can't remember who's in it, but it's like, Oh, Justin Timberlake is one of them. And they, they play the, uh, the backup dancers and it is, it is.

It is so so funny because they're so bad. I'll check it out. It is amazing. It is just just incredible. So I highly recommend checking that out. Um, anywho, on that note, I think we should probably wrap this up. People have things to do, places to go, people to see, not that we do, but but again, hopefully everyone had a very happy, healthy, safe 4th of July.

Uh, and uh, and hopefully, uh, Well, you hopefully a good mid July by the time you're listening to this. Hopefully you'll tune into us again next week, . I hope so. I hope so. We have some good stuff coming up. We do have some good interviews that we're excited to do. We do. We do. Uh, some really interesting people, someone audio engineering that I think will be very excited.

Yeah. Different perspectives. Yeah, definitely different perspectives. I mean, we have a lot of voice actors that come on here, which is greatly, we love. We're gonna, we're gonna see some, some different sides of the technical sides. Yeah, which I think is, which I think is interesting. And, and you know what, the more information you can have on that, the more expertise you can have on that, the better, the better.

It gives you more control over things. So that we, we actually do have some legitimate content coming up. So, um, it's not all going to be this, I promise, but it, you know, it's a summertime and we're bringing ourselves to the table. Like we're talking about life. And this is what you can do as well. Like you really can.

I know that seems silly. It seems like a stretch, but it's, it is the truth. Cause like, that's what we want. We want you, we want your sensibilities. We want your sense of play and we want you having a good time solving somebody's problem. That's it. Do it. Tell us about it. Uh, email us. Sam at voice coaches.

I know it was a little bit, uh, a little bit off the wall, a little bit inane this week, but that's okay. That's alright. That has to happen. We gotta get it out.

But um, we will be back next week. Hopefully with a better show. Maybe. We'll see. Who knows. It's hard to say at this point. Hard to say. Uh, but uh, Sam any last words? That was perfect.
