|He's No Longer In A World
||[Sep. 2nd, 2008|12:07 pm]
In a world where one mortal speaks with the "voice of God", it is too easy for that voice to be silenced.|
Don LaFontaine died yesterday. You may not know the name, but you certainly know the voice. He did the narration for over 5,000 movie trailers and recently appeared in a Geico commercial as himself. (He had a good sense of humor about what he did.)
What a shame to lose him and his wonderful voice. If you're religious, please say a prayer for him in the appropriate fashion... by which I mean deep, sonorous tones.
Edit: It would be cool if they did a tribute to him at the Oscars or something. It could be a montage entirely of trailer clips where he said "In a world"... That'd almost be enough to make me actually watch the Oscars!
