    … and hello again. We found this blog when updating to the new website. It was gone and sort of forgotten as you can see, as  the last entry was 5-years ago. I loved reading it again — I was blogging here before I started the New World Kirtan podcast, and if you scroll down you can read entries that relate to that. I’ll […]

    Several of my friends have asked for my Mom’s pizzelle recipe, and I’m happy to share it here.  But get ready to dive in, as there are many schools of thought as to what makes the perfect pizzelle.
    In our extended family there’s an unresolved schism over pizzelles.  Several of us insist th […]

    Well . . .  at that point over a year ago I decided to move the Kitzie’s Voice blog to Blogger–the reason why now escapes me.  Then Blogger (and Google) lost this blog, and several months of content, and has been unable to find it despite numerous emails to various support entities at both organizations–damn your eyes […]

    If you’ve been reading my blog, please note that I’ve not only moved location, but have expanded the scope of the blog as well.  I’ve been involved in yoga, meditation, the power of intention and kirtan chanting for a long time, and these and other practices (acupuncture & qigong) are moving me into a new place in m […]

    I’ve been away from my home/studio for almost 3 weeks . . . way too long. I was in Philadelphia for several weeks taking care of my Mom after knee replacement (that’s another story). But now I’m in Cape Cod with my husband’s family. This isn’t my first time, I’ve been here twice before. But this time I think I finally get it. […]

Marketing anything, including yourself usually involves creating a brand, and the brand that is Obama represents the reality of life after the Boomers. His appeal to the 18-29 year old millennial generation ( who will outnumber the Boomers by 201 […]

    The other night I was sharing some VO trivia with a friend of mine, and realized that so many people don’t really know what VOs do. There are so many funny pieces out there that illustrate our world, and I thought we should have them in one place for easy reference. And what better place than my blog? So, I’m going to post […]

    Oh, the stories we can tell. How easy people think it is to do voiceovers, how they know they can do it because they’ve been told they have such a great voice. The hordes that are out there with a cheap mic and Garage Band, thinking it’s so easy to break in, to get jobs, to make a living, to make a fortune. Why is VO sudd […]

    Actor Tim Robbins made the keynote speech at the National Association of Broadcasters show in Las Vegas on Monday night. Read the transcript here. It’s worth a read, mainly because he holds the industry to task for appealing to our lesser selves, and that it’s time for those in power in broadcasting to say “enough is e […]

    I’ve been doing a lot of marketing lately, and I’m again reminded about how tedious the whole thing can be . . . the database and the Excel spreadsheets. I usually feel like an idiot after an encounter with Excel, but it’s useful. So, data entry is tedious, and after the data entry there is the cold calling. But this […]
