NICO'S CARTOON COMMENTARIES - EPISODE 1

A new project I wanna try which lets you listen to me being a mega-geek in monthly installments, probably. Strictly just for fun, bitches. This 1st "episode" is more of a test than anything. Special animation-buddy guests to join me in future episodes. Thanks for listening.

Falling Hare Commentary
(1943)
Directed by Bob Clampett

uh... I have the impression that this cartoon gets better and better each time I watch it. They cut the airplane sequence out?!!!

I remember back when Cartoon Network actually aired Looney Tunes, that for a brief period, yeah, they cut the shots of the airplane heading towards and through the buildings.

I suggested this on Eddie's blog a while back after watching the Popeye discs ... I loved hearing Eddie, Kali and John talk about the cartoons. Especially being such a fan of everyone's blogs, it was nice to actually hear them for the first time! That goes for you too with your first commentary.

If you don't mind, I have a suggestion ... once your dialogue is recorded and complete to go back in (to whatever software) and fade the cartoon volume to normal when your not speaking ... it'll add to the experience!

This was really great! I'm looking forward to future posts. A really fun way to learn, don't you think?

WOW, thanks Chris!!

I welcome any and all feedback. Yeah, this was my first one so of course it's gonna be a bit bumpy, but i'll definitely make them better as I go on and learn more (LIKE fading the cartoon back in when there's stuff i don't have to say)!

if you like hearing the BIGSHOTS during commentaries, I'm planning on having a special guest with me for each future commentary, and I'm hoping Kali, Eddie or Katie can be one of them. I haven't asked yet, but I see them every so often, so we'll see.

Hey Nico!

I have yet to watch this ( cuz I'm at work ) but I will soon!

In the meantime, even though it's old, check out my Buckaroo Bugs commentary, and if you like that, I've got another one coming for 'Baby Bottleneck'.

I came past this on youtube, and it's great, you're saying pretty much exactly what I'm thinking while watching. (especially the laughing parts)
I haven't seen all WB shorts by far, but I don't think anything is ever going to beat this!
