Thank you everyone - post author Don

On the eve of the Winter Solstice, I thought I take a moment to thank the moderators and members of SimplyScripts. Thank you for your contributions to the site and allowing me to share in your successes. I’d also like to thank the moderators of the discussion board George, Mike, Michael, Nixon, Topher and Steven.

I’d particularly like to thank Dr. Robert “bert” Newcomer who is really the unsung hero of the site. Not only is he an excellent moderator to cleans up and helps throttle the discussions so they don’t get out of hand, but he has on a number of occasions given me sage advice before I stick my foot in my mouth.

Bert and the other moderators do their work without compensation. They also are many times of target of the ire of folks unhappy with the decisions they have made.

So, as a small thanks, over the next month the theme for The Script of the Day will be Bert. I’ll be starting off with scripts that Bert has had a hand in. Starting December 25th will be “The 12 Days of Bert” featuring a work of Bert’s for each of the 12 Days of Christmas.

Thank you everyone for your contributions to this dorky little website.

DC Douglas and Freedomworks - post author Don

We take you away from your regular programming for this Public Service Announcement.

My friend, voice over actor DC Dougles, recently got fired as vo talent from Geico. No, he wasn’t the gecko

(Well, DC is not so much a friend, but rather about five or six years ago he sent me an email asking if I would exchange website links with his voiceover site MyVoiceOverGuy. We did. I was one of the first sites to exchange links with him since my link is, like, at the bottom of his links page. A few years go I asked him if he was interested in recording a script for one of our One Week Challenges. He said no, ‘cuz he was painting his house.)

Anywhoo, DC Douglas was fired from Geico after leaving a drunken voicemail at Tea Party HQ Freedomworks. He’s back with an important, moving PSA: Please, please, don’t drunk dial the Tea Party.

Check out some background info on the whole thing here.

Hey, DC. If you do get blacklisted and have a little time on your hands and would be interested in recording a 15 page script, give me a call shoot me an email.
