  1. Just woke up from a dream that Elon Musk had developed a portable oxygen bubble that you could activate from your phone on a subscription model and on the day it launched the service drained the earth of all of its oxygen due to a programming fault, which led to only the people with the subscription being able to breathe and most others dying. Wrote every detail down because it’d make a great satirical disaster film. Back to sleep with me.

  3. Plus there’s the town priest, his kid brother sidekick, the FBI agent who blackmails the main character into doing crimes for him, the President of the United States, myself who may or may not still be a horse from that one thing, the main character’s dead father, her half-brother… basically everyone except the main character and the local bartender. Aiming to cut that down at least by half once I have the resources, either after a successful television pitch or funding by some other means (Kickstarter?)

  4. That sounds flippant - obviously if I had the time, money, and resources to find the very best person for these roles I would, because voicing 80% of the male voices myself - shockingly! - leads to a cast of people that all sound the same. The south Asian guy is gay and I also voice his boyfriend (a Republican congressman, because I’m inclusive :)), which means I’m also grapeing myself kind of a lot. I voice the main character’s best friend, who the south Asian guy hates, so on top of Fluffle Puffing myself, I also have to hate myself. It’s truly the worst form of MPD.

  5. @nerthos I’m not genuinely that invested in an accurate casting, I’m voicing a south Asian guy which I obviously am not, I just briefly thought it’d be funny to make my imaginary Jewish friend do it

Gonna play Sonic Frontiers tonight, get back to making cartoons tomorrow, and then do my part again two years from now.

If you’re in the UK (or have a VPN that lets you pretend you are) my friend Billie, who voiced Sebas in the final My Little Brony short and will be returning in the upcoming episodes of The Twin Souls, starred in a short that aired on BBC 4 earlier this evening.

  19. I always thought he was trilingual, because in every store I worked in with him we had a lot of north Indian employees who spoke Hindi and he was able to communicate with them reasonably well, but the way he explained it to me is this: He can understand Hindi perfectly fine, as can most of his people, and they share some common words, but most people in Bangladesh have very little experience actually speaking it because the parts of India that border the country all also speak Bengali (or Bangla, depending on the area), and both countries use English for a variety of official purposes, so there's no practical reason to actually speak the language - hence, it comes out all broken and papayaed-up sounding.
