Ya left out Miss Stormreach Segment 3 in your little timeline there! Great show Jerry and co hosts! I appreciate what you mean by stuff taking a long time. Just the audio for this week's Miss Stormreach took forever! I won't say how much time it took Lessah and I to write, record, and edit it, but it was more than your work on the cool video you posted. In the end you always sacrfice the epic quality you want for the time constraints you have to meet. And then you have to leave time to dress up your pets (http://black20.com/saturday-morning-funtime-explosion/dress-your-pets), carve a pumpkin, and make a broccoli video. It's rough.

Forget not the time it also takes to convince your wife that she doesn't sound dorky and it is cool to do voice-overs for DDOcast...

Forget not the time it also takes to convince your wife that she doesn't sound dorky and it is cool to do voice-overs for DDOcast...Your wife definitely does not sound dorky. Clanky is giving Mari some extra points just because of her! But, um...I'm afraid that doing voices on the DDoCast is only considered "cool" by the DDo community. Outside of that, she is now officially a nerd like the rest of us.

On the bright side, you now have subject matter with which to blackmail her in the future. On the bad side, she now has somethig to hold over you for the rest of your life (ala Sword of Damocles). Good luck with that you two! :D And, now, here's an excerpt from Clankenbeard's Masterwork Theater...

ACT 1: THE BRIGHT SIDE
"I'll be having a makeup party with about ten friends over on Saturday. I need you to serve snacks."
"Great! That will be a perfect time play your DDoCast voiceover to all of your friends at once!"
"Maybe you should go hang out with your buddies at a bar."

ACT 2: THE BAD SIDE
"But I don't WANT to go to the fabric store."
"Remember that time you made me do a voice for DDoCast?"
"I'll get my keys."

Oh, when will it end?!?!

You guys did such a great job with it, it was worth the endless suffering I will be forced to endure to partake.

Too true! Except for the doing voice-overs for DDOcast being a nerdy thing to do. I think it's about as cool as hanging out with female ninja assasins in your private yacht with a concert by international rock stars in the background. I could be wrong though...
