Lsherm: WordyGrrl: I did a two-week voiceover gig in Korea for a big budget movie called "Emma in Paris." Turns out it was not quite the "international romantic drama" they told us it was:

/Never seen the movie or been able to find it on video
//I voiced the part of the hot French mistress
///The rest of my English-speaking co-workers were also tv news reporters/anchors (for AFKN).

I gotta ask:  how in the hell does a news anchor fall into a voiceover job for porn?


As professional speakers of English in Korea, we had tons of companies and individuals contacting us to do voicework for English lessons. With proper networking and so on, you can get all kinds of different voicework gigs. Never got rich, but it did provide plenty of spending money.

We had no effing idea it was softcore porn because we never saw the whole thing, just the scenes they needed us for -- which were sometimes a little sexy but not porny. They herded us into a big room, gave us scripts, put mics in front of us and we read our lines as in synch as possible with the work print they had rolling. We had to adlib nearly all of it because the English translation didn't match the moving lips. I still  have the marked up script somewhere, mostly because nobody will believe me without proof.

I worked for an engineering firm that had to report on the state of a 150 year old sewer system for a town in the mountains of Maryland.  For two months we had to crawl down every manhole in town and place a flow meter, which looked kind of like a 8" barrel subwoofer, into the flow of raw sewage.  Then we had to take readings directly from them every week for a year.

The smell of shiat never leaves you.  By the time waste hits the sewer it's all mixed together so there's nothing "clumpy" - it's just a nasty, nasty effluent that seeps into your pores.  You could bathe in bleach and still not get that smell off you.

i was once in charge of quality control/inspection for a drug and vitamin manufacturing plant although i had absolutely no experience, education in or business holding that position. i also oversaw operations of warehousing for the 2nd largest branch of the 2nd largest telco in america, same deal, i had no clue WTF when i walked in the door. worked in a R&D Lab performing full analysis of test batch samples of a metalizing mix used in ceramic substrate heat sinks, same deal - no way in hell I should have held that job. being well dressed, bold and cocky at interview time often works.
