    Yeah THAT James Earl Jones...

    So how's this for a fun project:

    Today I'm finishing up an orchestral score for a short documentary that James Earl Jones is narrating. Gotta say, having that amazing voice come through my studio monitors is just so cool!

    It is fun putting up the picture and VO I'm working with, expecting to hear the scratch track the producer made, and suddenly, it's the voice you know so well from so many things. Just cool as hell.

    Angela Lansbury, John Lithgow, Elizabeth Ashley, Eli Wallach, and Tyne Daly are interviewed in it. Just a treat and a half to be involved with.

    Make a copy of his acapella track and edit together a new voicemail message.

    Not with a track entrusted to me by a client.

    It's not a commercial, actually. It's more of a documentary to give visitors an historical reference to a theater restoration project. I'm not sure what its other uses will be yet.

    He did use the Darth Vader voice. Which, you know, is his regular voice. Kept calling me Luke.

    Hey, shouldn't you be busy scrubbing that awful pink Pepto-Bismol stain off that otherwise nice '91 you just bought?

    Absolutely...it was in mint NOS condition, so that pepto bismol color was very upsetting...I personally got some serious sandpaper and scraped off the entire finish and relic'ed it myself. "Cause we all know how much cooler a relic'ed guitar is.

    BTW.....I have a nice bridge that connects Tillary Street in Brooklyn with Park Row in Manhattan. Really cheap....PM me for a good price and I can have you as the owner by Sunday. And, I'll throw in the guitar.

    Nah, I wouldn't let that guitar into my house, being all sunburned looking and with a pink butt. So the deal's off.
