The New Year!

Posted by Dale on Dec 30, 2009 in Uncategorized

2010 will not go down as a banner year. Unless that banner reads:

“Good Riddance, Thanks for Nothing!”

As we all hope for improved wages, better returns, more jobs… heck, A job, it serves us to take a look back and see what we can learn from last year.

For me 2009 wraps up the decade with the understanding that the Voice Over Biz get harder the older you get. And most of that can be attributed to the increasing multitude of complexities that come with the adding of years.

These complexities are endless, unavoidable, and unpredictable. However that doesn’t mean they have to be debilitating.

To make a positive is the only choice I have, cause the negative just feeds negative.

"Always with the Negative Waves"

So as I begin my goals for 2010. ( Always a good idea.) I find myself taking that fear and anxiety and parlaying them into focus, renewed work ethic, and a stronger faith in my past. Meaning I know I’m good at what I do, and the down times are just opportunities to catch up on reading and a litmus that make the up times all that more sweeter.

For me the year was one for introspection and making sure that all the “junk” that happened doesn’t through me off my balance.

So it is with great excitement, feeling as if I’ve found my balance, that I enter this new decade. There will be much work, with no few guarantees. However, I look forward to looking back at the end of 2010.

Here’s to the next decade in the biz.

Picked Up!

Posted by Dale on Dec 10, 2009 in Voice Over

So it is with little fanfare and much hope, that the two shows I’ve voiced “Mall Cops” and “Conveyor Belt Of Love”, have been picked up.

Mall Cops

Mall Cops On TLC

“Mall Cops” has had 12 episodes ordered by TLC and should start airing sometime in Spring of 2010.

“Conveyor Belt of Love” will air on Jan 4th on ABC. If things go well it has a chance of getting picked up for more episodes.

“Conveyor” marks my second foray into the world of Dating Shows, having voiced 750 episodes of “Elimidate”

Between now and those pay checks anything can happen. As it did when I was the original voice on “The Simple Life” with Paris Hilton and Nichol Richie. The producers loved me, but somewhere along the way Fox decided they didn’t. As my saying de jour goes. “It Is What It Is.”

So really excited about the possibility of these two shows, but reserved as well.

As always never sure that my voice will end up on the show or that the shows will actually air, and definitely not counting the money until the check has cleared.

And yes… The check hasn’t cleared before!
