This video presents just one of SO MANY invigorating, FUN events happening at VO Atlanta next month, March 8th to 13th. The challenge results are fun to witness. The challenge is thrilling (and scary - in a good way) to be a part of, and led by two of the class acts in the VO industry, +Dan Friedman and +Cliff Zellman . If you haven't registered yet - there's still time at https://voatlanta.me/.

If You're a Mac user looking for new apps for everything from DE-duplicating your Photos or iTunes library, to being more productive in various ways, unlike the Mac App Store, SETAPP is simple, allows you to try apps before buying them, and is so simple, you're likely to look for the "next step", when you've already accomplished the job.

Hey Billy Bragg and Joe Henry fans - this is a very cool link to a short section of the NPR Tiny Desk concert featuring Billy and Joe and some of the old railway songs on their new concept album - recorded at various railway stations on an America-wide train trip: Shine A Light: Field Recordings From The Great American Railroad. In particular, you'll never hear "Midnight Special" the same way again once Joe Henry explains what "shine a light" actually means at about the 10 minute mark. It's about 13 minutes long. The music is available on Apple Music, iTunes, and probably pretty much everywhere. Found this on a great G+ feed called Today in Music History.

"Earlier this year, Billy Bragg and Joe Henry set off on a journey. They boarded a train in Chicago, bound for Los Angeles. Each time the train stopped for more than 20 minutes in cities like St. Louis and San Antonio, they'd grab their guitars, hop off, find the waiting room and record an old railroad song. The result of this journey is an album called Shine A Light: Field Recordings From The Great American Railroad.

Bragg has been weaving folk and punk with protest music since the late '70s, when he first started busking around London. You can hear his passion for American songwriters such as Woody Guthrie and Lead Belly on this record. Henry is an American singer and songwriter with 13 albums of his own. He's also produced so many great records for others, including Rodney Crowell, Lisa Hannigan, Bonnie Raitt — and Bragg himself."

"This concept record could be seen as a nostalgia trip, but both Bragg and Henry will emphatically say that it's not. These songs and this journey celebrate the modern railroad as a major economic engine and a still-vital form of transportation. The songs are filled with mythic poetry and the metaphoric romance inherent in train songs, but the vitality in the performances keeps the songs current. You can hear that behind my desk as well as you might in a rail station."

Gmail users! Time to change passwords and check your accounts. I've just received two emails from separate users in the past half hour - one with a gmail.com suffix and one with a domain mask, letting me know they'd "sent some files". Both are bogus, but it indicates a breach of some sort. Make it 12 characters long and complex. Enable two factor authentication (which I know is a PITA).

If you've ever worked with a bilingual peer, or hired a bilingual professional, such as a narrator like myself for example, you may have noticed how "different" the person sounds in the language other than the one you're used to hearing them use. It's not your imagination - their personality can actually be different depending on the language used according this article: http://www.lifehack.org/419220/multilinguals-experience-personality-change-when-using-different-languages?ref=mail&mtype=daily_newsletter&mid=20160727_customized&uid=746165&email=paul%40paulboucher.com&action=click
