A Not-So-Shocking Adventure: He’s got it Pegged

adventureswithD-final (1)D: I think I have it figured out, A.

A: Have what figured out, D? Is it the question that beggars the answer, 42?

D: No.

A: Have you figured out why there is something rather than nothing?

D: No, A. I figured—

A: Have you figured out what happens next?

D: Yes! Yes I have, A and what happens next is Simon Pegg is going to be my voice actor.

A: . . . You’re still going on about a voice actor?

D: So long as you insist on talking to the internet about cats, celebrities and a cacophonous conglomerate of craziness, I’m going to insist on having my own voice.

A: Please note that there were no cats mentioned in the recording of the Green Embers Recommends podcast, except in the title. Go on, go listen. We’ll wait.

* * *

D: As I was saying—

A: And may I interrupt here and say, that was an amazing array of alliteration, D.

D: Now you’re just mocking me.

A: I thought it was the other way around.

Is this the voice of D?  Nah!
Is this the voice of D?
… nah!

D: . . . Can I get back to Simon Pegg being my voice actor, please?

A: Of course.

D: Thank you  . . . of course, I don’t have anything else to say about that. Set it up, A.

A: Please. Set it up, A, please.

D: Fine. Please. . . and thank you.

A: That’s better. Why do you want him to voice you, D? I mean, he’s funny, certainly, but I’m just not seeing it.

D: You don’t have to see it, you have to hear it. I’ve heard him do different accents, A. I’m fairly certain he could handle mine.

A: I know, I know – and as I’ve said before, I admire his work, but are you sure he could do you justice?

D: You just don’t want people to hear me.

A: Actually, I don’t want to pay an actor to voice you, but should I fail in that endeavor, I’d like it to be right.

D: So, the comic genius who you and The Boy rave about is out?

A: Are you funny?

D: I see your point. But put him on the maybe list – I think he has potential, A.

A: (Eye roll) I’ll do that, D. I’m sure Mr. Pegg is so relieved you think so.

D: As well he should be. Enjoy the podcast everyone – A and Green certainly seem to.

  1. You just reminded me to watch World’s End again with Simon Pegg. Have you seen it? He’s simply amazing in it, Katie. No wonder he’d be perfect for voice acting. His voice is unique that it would make for the perfect cartoon! 🙂 Wouldn’t that be something? 😉


    1. I love World’s End! In that, and in Burk & Hare, he really proved himself to be capable of some emotional depth (not that he hadn’t in others, it’s just that I found those two to be stand-out performances). His voice is unique – both he and Nick Frost were the cops in Tin Tin. I wasn’t a huge fan of the movie, and I wish they had done *more* with those two. I think a voice acting gig with them would be fascinating (but maybe not with D! 😉 )


  2. Ha!! Still as humorous as ever I see, Katie! This brought me a chuckle. Although, I must confess I’m not sure who Simon Pegg is?? Morgan Freeman I know, just so you don’t think I’ve been living under a rock too long!! Lol


    1. 🙂 Hi Kirsten! Simon Pegg is a British comedian/actor. He played Scotty in the latest Star Trek films, but he was also in Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz and World’s End. He was also in some of the Mission: Impossible movies. My son is a huge fan of his and turned me on to his work. He is very funny. I have a review of his old TV show, Spaced, over at GE Recommends.


  3. Ahahaha, you were quick with this! 😀

    D always cracks me up, although I am not sure if I can “see” or even hear Simon as his voice. I think I would need to hear it for sure though to make a judgment call. 😆


    1. Simon Pegg is totally not D. . . not even a little, but the boy recommended it as part of the Spaced homage, so I had to go with it. That said, Pegg does a pretty good Scots, so it could happen. . . . like, if he wanted to do it for free 😀
