    I love this.

    I really like Stephen’s performance in this. I mean, everybody is doing an amazing job, but I feel like with almost every character Stephen has played, he’s played with the voice. He even did it with Orem a bit, and it has always been, and I don’t mean this in a negative way, a very obvious change.

    But with Russel it’s a really subtle thing. But you can clearly hear it when Stephen goes from talking as the character, and switching into describing action. It’s softer, somehow more vulnerable. I really dig it.

  2. The Queen's Obedient Cousin on

    I’m enjoying this so much. Everyone’s really bringing their A+ game with the vocal characterizations — the accents are fun, but the way the characters come across in performance is even better.

    I particularly love the contrast between Brian’s secret identity and the Hanging Judge himself — I can really believe people wouldn’t realize they’re the same man. And as much as I love Randus, his quietness and hesitancy always makes it more impressive for me when Brian plays a confident, decisive, vocal character.

    Matthew’s five-minute rambling description of his “dog” as all the dogs the show’s listeners have ever had, plus some extra stuff, including green, oh wait that’s probably a leaf, reminded me of this fan-art rendition of his attempt to describe Jetstar, his Modern City character:

    I’d love to see an equivalent thing for that. Especially since my childhood dogs were a beagle and a shih-tzu-based mutt, and trying to picture a dog that was both of those dogs, plus feral, plus like six colors of fur, really left me without any image at all. But c’mon, we all know what a coyote looks like!

    • It should be noted that the Jetstar issue came with me realizing halfway through that I was actually describing a character far too close to an existing character and trying to work out in my head how to keep the cool aspects without resembling that other character too much…
