RIP Don LaFontaine

You may not know the name, but you most certainly know the voice. Being a voiceover performer myself, I've been in awe of this man's voice for a long time, but it wasn't till I saw that fucking Geico commercial that I finally learned his name. All I can hope for is to one day come within a light-year or so of the power and authority he could convey. Hell, that guy could make a thumb tack scary. Maybe that's why the only assignments I ever get are stupid in-house corporate training films. Ah, well. At least they pay the bills.

RIP, Don.

"In a world...of movie trailers without his voice." Sadness.
