Explain it to me...  
Dear LJ: Spit those comments out before you choke on them!

I still have some unguessed movie quotes over here. C'mon, you know you want to try! And these are all favorites, as opposed to just favorite quotes (so, for instance, "You too much TV" is not on there).

Surf's Up: How is "Tank" voiced by Diedrich Bader? I just saw that actor on a Drew Carey rerun last night, and he has a tenor-timbre voice while the character's voice is a baritone. In fact, who the character sounds like is Patrick Warburton (yay, Patrick!).

Where can I find some really good Wincest, Jensen, and Sam&Dean Gen icons? Any recs?

What do you wish YOU were doing today?

Only one of the remaining ones isn't semi-obscure, so don't feel too bad.

Except for that one. ;)

1. I wish I were home.

2. I wish I hadn't posted another installment of existential angst in my journal.

3. I wish I could think of something wittier than wishing I were home and worrying about my own angst. ;-P

Nothing wrong with that! I wish I were home and had time at home to do some writing. As opposed to having to wait until everyone goes to bed, by which time I'm usually falling asleep myself!

I can't even wish for a pony-- I know what the upkeep is like. ;)

I haven't seen "Surf's Up", but Diedrich Bader was also Ron Livingston's neighbor in "Office Space" and played Jethro in the "Beverly Hillbillies" movie. Do either of those characters sound closer to the voice of 'Tank'?

I don't remember "Office Space" that well, and haven't seen the "Beverly Hillbillies" (don't intend to!)

The funny thing is, the voice in Surf's Up sounds exactly like Patrick Warburton. It's his delivery and style and inflection and everything. As soon as I hear it, my brain throws up the "Patrick Warburton" sign. And is utterly wrong. ;)

Well, I'm sure I don't have to tell you that you didn't miss a thing by not seeing the movie (I'm a little embarrassed to have seen it, actually).

As for Office Space - arg! Love that movie... so many fun quotes.

Checking through IMDb, he also played a security guard in "Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back" (if you're a Kevin Smith fan), Rex in "Napoleon Dynamite", a mugger in "EuroTrip", and Joel Meyers in "Miss Congeniality 2".

Napoleon Dynamite *chokes on own tongue*

I saw Miss Congeniality 2, and I vaguely remember him being in there. It's more that I know what his voice generally sounds like (he had a LOT of dialogue on the Drew Carey show), and I'm shocked to find him behind a voice that doesn't sound like him, and in fact sounds exactly like someone else.

My husband is very good with voices, and specializes in picking out commercial voice-overs. Though for awhile, they were 50% "The Hack Man! I love him!" and 50% "God, I hate Peter Coyote." ;)

Wait, is comment notification not working? So, like, I'm going to have to check to see if people comment or reply? Oh, man. Don't they know I'm lazy and absent-minded?

I have been looking for a source, too. I've managed to pull an icon here and an icon there, but so far no really good source has presented itself. :(

What do you wish YOU were doing today?

Snuggling. With boys. Who are warm. And don't mind fetching things like chocolate. And pizza. Mmm... Pizza and chocolate fetching warm boys who snuggle... *gggglaaaaahhhh*

Edit: Hey, I just noticed the subject of this post - is that a Liz Phair reference I see?

Me too. Thank goodness I now know I can find many of these via my LJ Inbox. But what about comments I leave on other people's journals that they reply to? Not sure that part works.

I have room for only a couple more, which of course makes me obsess about finding quality ones!

Sadly, no. ;) Mainly, it's my personal obsession with that voice mis-match in Surf's Up. It's driving me nuts!
