In case you're a fan of Mike Rowe, voiceoverist and host of the show "Dirty Jobs", he was interviewed recently on CBS Sunday Morning. It opens on him in a VO session which particularly caught my interest:

I saw this piece when it aired. Great interview. Had no idea of Mr. Rowe's singing talent. He's an impressive guy. (Of course I recognized 'my' Sennheiser 416 immediately!)

Enjoyed watching this. He lives here in San Francisco but according to an article I read recently in one of our papers, he's seldom home and is crazy busy
on the road. A friend noted that now that he's making serious "coin," it's a shame he doesn't take more time off to enjoy. In demand for sure.

What could be more enjoyable than cleaning out a vat of pig crap! Gasp

Apparently during GDC (Game Developers Conference) he had randomly stopped by a post-convention party and hung out with game developers. My memory is fuzzy on the details, but either way he seems like a cool guy. He gets bonus points in the youth department for hanging out with game developers.
