General Side for It's a Wonderful Life (male/female)

Generic sample not from play just to give us an idea of your voice quality:


Okay, I’ll admit it. I’m a dog person. It doesn’t mean that I don’t like cats. Cats are cool but I relate to dogs better. Dog people tend to hang out together. They support one another in their “doggedness.” They are more co-dependent. They go to coffee shops and shopping malls with their canine friends seeking to connect with other dog people. Why? Dog people have an insatiable desire to connect and be validated. They need to be told they are okay and that their world is a happy place. Now, cat people… they just don’t care. They are mostly loners. Have no real friends and pretend to be popular when the truth is… nobody likes them. Dog people carry pictures of their dogs around with them in their smart phones and wallets. They talk to their dogs as if they were humans and pretend they can answer them. “See Skippy wag his tail? That means he wants his cappuccino with no foam.” Cat people rarely take their feline counterparts anywhere. That’s because a cat really has very little use for a human contact. Cats use humans for a modicum of shelter and food. Other than that, a cat could care less. Dogs are needy companions who constantly require the verbal praise of their masters. Dog people say they go to dog parks to have their pets socialize with other dogs. The truth is, dog people us their pets as a social lubricant. They really go to dog parks to meet other dog people. Cat people just open the door and let them out not knowing when or if they will ever return.
Like I said, I’m one of those dog people constantly reaching out… and hoping… to connect… to someone… anyone… who is just like me.
