Remember that guy that did the Beavis impersonation? Was he cool then or a dork? I thought Beavis and Butthead was dumb at the time so I thought he was a dork, but if you were a fan, was that dude cool? probably not.
I wonder what that dude is up to? He probably moved on to the cartmen impersonation. Yeah, mos def he did that. What does he do now? Lets see, he is probably aged 28-38, so hopefully he is more sophisticated. He probably does a family guy impersonation. I think maybe he started with Peter but then quickly moved on to doing stewie impersonations. Yep, I can guarantee this.
Every does some sort of impersonation (oh side note, only Family Guy voice copy worth its weight in salt is Cleveland, and not Cleveland from the Cleveland Show. Youuuur Welcome) But impersonations. We all do them, good or bad. Me, i talk to my daughter in a Russian accent when we drive around, pretending I am a cab driver who just picked up a baby and the baby is being very difficult in giving me directions. Every once in a while I will get so into character I would circle the block demanding she tell me where she is headed or i will just leave her right then and there on the corner.
Its hard for me, a professionally trained voice actor, to stay in the Russian accent, as 5 years of Yugoslavian barrage has striped me with any other dialect to use. It all turns Serbian after a couple sentences.
What is it with dialects that we like to mimic? Is it mean spirited? usually, but its universally accepted. I am not anti it, but if I walked around pretending I was obese and taking fake insulen shots, I would kinda be a dick. But if i walk around saying half sentences in a Swedish accent, its kinda funny and cute.
So...its 2011 huh. How did that happen? Apparently a lot has happened since we last spoke, and by apparently I mean, we think these things happened because a TV show told us they did. But really, FOX news, I mean, they got FOX in the name. They have movie studio magic behind them. CNN...you can't trust a southerner, MSNBC...never trust too many acronyms. Until a Libyan, if that is even a a country, I have never been there, never even met anyone claiming to be from there, tells me with signed and noted documents, that his/her country is in the throws of a civil war, I am going to be a skeptic. Its 2011 people, we got to draw a line in the sand.
What I do know as I lived it, breathed it, bathed in it, washed, folded, and carefully put away was Christmas, birthday week, and incredibly mediocre stories of fun. (oh, you all probably didn't get that telegraph, which is another thing 2011 is all about, antiquated technology, but 2011 is all about fun. Wild concept right!)
We are going to dust off this old time machine and blow your mind with what we have been up to. And trust me. Its going to be fun. (actually don't trust me, read the first paragraph. All of this could be lies. Photoshoped fairy tales.)
