New reviews next issue
Starting next issue, we will have some new reviews. We've taken a break from doing episode reviews. Now it's time to bring them back.
First up will be I Know That Voice. I'm in a class for work right now. When I was scheduled for this, I thought, "Great. There's a little bit of reading and questions to be done each night, but otherwise, I'll have time away from my normal routine. I'll get I Know That Voice, be able to watch it undisturbed and have a great review for the newsletter."
Well, I will, but it will be next issue. I didn't factor in having to be in a hotel room where every time the compressor in the heater kicks in, the rumble overpowers the audio, which isn't very loud to begin with on the built-in speakers of the laptop. Or the lowest speed of the heater fan being fairly loud. I can't really hear what's being said, and since this is a documentary that is mostly talking, I've had to give up until I can get back home.
This documentary is a great look into what it takes to be a voice actor and I want to adjust my review so it can be put on a few different wikis, customized for those wikis. I need to be able to concentrate in order to do this right and I can't do it where I'm currently at.
After that, I may branch off into song reviews. While driving a few days ago, I found myself singing songs from both Phineas and Ferb and My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. This is what can happen when the radio gets stolen out of your truck and you haven't gotten around to replacing it. Luckily I didn't have any passengers or else I'm certain they would have broke the door trying to get away from my off-key singing. And I gotta admit that "Find the Music in You" can be one of the most circular songs I've heard in a long time that is difficult to break out of and stop singing.
Both series have their share of songs which convey something fun or positive. But with more songs than episodes, there are many themes to explore in Phineas and Ferb. If someone else is willing to pick up episode reviews again, maybe we can run one of each in each issue.
