requiescat in pace chrissy fadala

Boston Voice Talent Meet-Up Front row (l-r) Chrissy Fadala, Moe Egan, DB Cooper; Back row Diane Maggipinto (and son Lio), Peter O'Connell and Lee Gordon

When I heard about this last night, I couldn’t quite bring myself to write about the passing of this wonderful soul.

I knew Chrissy later in her life, first from the VO-BB and then thankfully she joined us for this dinner you see in the summer of 2009. How great for me that she would turn out to join us on this special night. I hope I said thank you enough to her for coming out.

If you aren’t a member of the VO-BB, you’ll need to sign up to read my talented friend Mandy Nelson’s kind and loving story of visiting Chrissy in the hospital with Chrissy daughter Delana and how peaceful it all seemed for everyone.

It was a great crutch for the many broken hearts that got to spend time “with our Chrissy”.

new web site for bilingual voice talent dan hurst

Male Voice Talent Dan Hurst

Got a ping in my email box from bilingual (English/Spanish) voice talent Dan Hurst that he has updated his web site.

His new and improved web site contains exclusive super concentrated emollients and retsyn for that just brushed clean sounding audio.

No it doesn’t, I’m just being silly. But the web site does look nice and it has always sounded great.

the devil is in the cookie aisle

So let me clear – the reason you are NOT supposed to grocery shop when you are hungry is because when you have to go to the cookie aisle to get those little snack pack of oreos for school lunches that are on the grocery list, you have to walk past the big oreos, like the nice mint oreos. And you think, “won’t that be a treat for the week”, and maybe you’ll have just one when you get home since you truly never ever buy them because you know you like them a bit “toooo” much. Except you rip the damn bag open in the parking lot while you are loading the groceries. Three for me and one for my child so it “seems” equal, at least to her. And then when you get home, you sneak just a couple of more and then a couple after dinner, and then you stupidly poor yourself a half glass of milk (which you normally wouldn’t drink at this time of night save for the mint crackeos you purchased less than an hour ago) only to find that by the time the milk is deliciously gone so are 2 of 3 rows of mint oreos which proves my sugar induced theory that the devil LIVES in the cookie aisle of every store.

So endth the lesson. *burp*
