"In a World Gone Mad..."

Just read on Mark Evanier's blog that Don LaFontaine, the voice of almost every movie trailer for the last thirty years, has passed away. This bums me out, partly if not mostly because I learned in a video from another post of ME's that LaFontaine would record answering machine messages for strangers who asked him if he had the time. That piece of arguably minor generosity on his part turned him from a guy whose job I wish I had into a Very Cool Person in my book.

In any event, this is one of those times where saying "It'll never be the same again" really does apply, at least when one's talking about movie advertising.
