Listen Online! Nostromo 2: Electric Alien Boogaloo

The JAT crew got a chance to return to Escape Velocity this past Memorial Day and do a special live production in honor of the 40th anniversary of both Alien and the TV show Buck Rogers in the 25th Century (as you’ll hear, we reference some of the earlier adventures of Rogers as well). Basically, it’s a send up of every space opera story you know where a crew investigates a derelict spacecraft and mayhem ensues.

In addition to creating some brand new sound gear for live sound effects, we got to work with our first “special guest voice” as space opera veteran Gigi Edgley was a guest of the convention and graciously agreed to step up to the mic.

RIP, Russi Taylor

We were sad to read that Russi Taylor, veteran voice actor, has died at the age of 75. Taylor may be best remember by many of us as the voice of Minnie Mouse. In fact, she was married to the voice of Mickey Mouse for some time until he sadly passed in 2009. By all accounts, Taylor was great to work with. Writer and all-around pop culture historian Mark Evanier has a nice remembrance as well.

Of course, like just about all voice actors, Taylor was more than just the voice of Minnie as this great compilation shows:
