Not Long To Go! (20th December 2009)






Catch you guys real soon! Got the script/notes ready and SAM Broadcaster program up and runnin'. It's all GO! ;)



The Man Behind The Voice of Dr. Eggman! (17th December 2009)






Nuff' said, only three more days to go.


You know the drill guys! Be sure to spread the word to your friends since this opportunity doesn't come often. Don't forget to tune in on Sunday! = )


I will do my best to make this interview with the legendary Mike Pollock as unique as possible since there is a whole bunch of other ones he's already been on:










To LISTEN (to the show) and CHAT in the IRC chat room at the same time all you have to do is click on the pic above you. Let bmn do the rest. Be sure to bookmark the link for future reference!





Bmn suggested that you don't need Winamp or an IRC app to get it working. You do need Flash Player (for the radio) and Java (for the chat).


More importantly be sure to have an IRC client - otherwise you won't be able to have access to the chat room. Check out Allan's thread on how to download one!







Catch you guys this Sunday! Once again please feel free to POST YOUR QUESTIONS TO MIKE here on this journal entry.

Do some homework and check out the 3 interviews mentioned earlier before posting questions that have already been asked.


Credit to Brad Flick (aka Slingerland), Bryon Beaubien (aka Psyguy) & Andrew Paulson for their work and of course to our special guest Mike Pollock who has confirmed with me that he'll be making it to the show this Sunday.

I will be sure to let you guys know first thing if I hear anything from Mike regarding whether he can still make it or not. Cheers! *thumbs up*


Kind regards,

Elson 'Darkspeeds' Wong


P.S. Oh and one more thing! Click on the DJ Darkspeeds image above or the real life image of me below - it will also take you to the "DOWNLOAD PAGE of ALL DJ DARKSPEEDS SHOWS</a>" up to date! Happy listening!

P.P.S. Also, :iconpsyguy: will be joining in the LIVE discussion with Mike and myself for added entertainment. Be sure not to miss out!

I think Mike Pollock is one of the best current-time voices of Sonic too. In fact, now that these guys have been going on for about 5 years now, I think it's high time people stopped giving the VAs crap about their job. First of all, 4Kids is only responsible for the Voice Production, and the scripts in each game are more reflective of the Japanese version than ANY 4Kids dub ever was. Plus, the voices have had experience with other more mature series, and to top it off, they really are improving since their start at Sonic X. So if anybody has anything to rant about, they may likely be among people you'd take one look at and realize they're only seeking attention.

(whew) Sorry for taking up so much of your time. Anyway, I hope the interview goes well, and good luck. Oh, and on Ah! My Goddess on Funimation.com, in the first few minutes of episode 1, Pollock plays a Buddhist Monk.

Loved the show. And as I said, while Ian Flynn would be nice, he's busy. Jon Gray would also be awesome... but he's also busy. Hmm.

I have I think one question now.

By how you talk and by your answers to questions it seems that Doctor Eggman isn't just a character you do the voice of, but a character that you, in ways, can actually connect with. Would you feel that parts of Doctor Eggman's persona comes your own self ideas, or is he competly detached from you as a person?

Well, did have one or two comments for him while he was on this Kinnikuman forum I go to (when playing Meat in UM), and did ask him for the Eggman role in the SoS 09 special, but he said he wasn't allowed, but won't mind playing any other role he doesn't play on TV or games.
