The world is a dark, disgusting, smelly place in which noises echo in my head. Everywhere I turn there is no hope.

"Philip, why are you wearing an old manure bucket on your head?"

I removed the bucket and noticed the following printed on it - The Voiceover Community (international) Membership Level XII.

I did not sign up for this! I threw the bucket away just missing Otto my neighbour's Miniature Schnauzer in the process.

FREEDOM!

Cue phone.

"Philip, have you heard about the latest scandal in the voiceover community! IT'S DISGUSTING!"

"No it isn't" I replied. "Human Trafficking is disgusting, child exploitation, pornography, neglect and abuse ALL disgusting, but anything in the voice over world, no. Those dramas are up there with questions like, whilst flying first class should I accept the Champagne or the orange juice?

I know people who do voice over work. When there is nothing under them they simply do voice work. Of the people who make a living doing what I do, I quite like 3, despise 1, consider 42 of them people I once met and the rest worthy of being fed to mad Monkeys in outer Mongolia (you should so visit, the Friday Buffett is divine).

Should life in the heady world of overs we call voice get too much for you, fly to Portgordon and join me and Bess the Border Collie for a walk along the beach. If you're broke I'll pay the air fare.

One has to opt in to drama, choose to opt out.

"One has to opt in to drama..."

Scoring off the Pith-Truth meter.

I used to join in with the rampant indignation and was ready to hand out the pitchforks and torches... but I now take a far more existential view.

In other words, nowadays I just find most of it bloody hilarious... somewhat like a kitten savaging a table leg.

Most get into the drama either out of boredom, defense of their beliefs or the need to feel superior. It's the same with country music.

Hence the ultimate online nightmare would be crossing swords with a VO who knows someone able to play the Banjo!

To the Gentleman of Portgordon, Scotland, the banjo is more acquainted with Appalachian folk music, better known as blue grass. It's a descendant of Irish folk music. So, in my opinion, banjo ahead!

Mmmm so I'm not Banjoist, I'm racist? That's not a good thing. Mother has instructed me to go to my room and think about what I have written.

Philip? Oh, Philip? You can come out of your room now...

And please turn down that bloody Pogues music. I swear, if I hear Squid Out of Water one more time, I'm going to... I'm going to...







well, I'm probably going to keep tapping my feet like every other time I've heard it...
