Brad looks forward to discussing his current and recently completed voice projects (but must wait until they've been officially announced...sorry).

Josh Keaton

 
Josh discovered his passion for performing as a child. The venue: a tabletop at a random restaurant. Although he did not yet realize it, that fateful day would set off a series of events that would culminate in his becoming a number of superheroes (and some weird, creepy villains).
 
Josh began his career at only three years old in an ad for Osh Kosh B'Gosh; he got the job while tagging along at his sister’s audition (and she’s never let him forget it). His credits include Boston Public, ER, Will and Grace, Bones, the Disney Channel’s The Even Steven's Movie, and the Jerry Bruckheimer drama Skin, as well as roles in several independent films.
 
His career in voice acting began early in his life, with lead roles in Peter Pan and the Pirates, and Back to the Future: The Animated Series, but really began to take off with his performance as Young Hercules in the Disney animated film Hercules. More recently he has voiced several iconic Comic Book heroes, most notably: The Flash, Aquaman (Justice League: Crisis on Two Earths), and Peter Parker in the critically acclaimed Spectacular Spider-Man. He can currently be heard on Transformers: Prime, Nickelodeon’s Winx Club, and will be voicing Hal Jordan in Bruce Timm’s Green Lantern: The Animated Series coming to Cartoon Network on 11-11-11.
 
An avid gamer (he plays them for “research”), Josh has been very enthused to voice roles in many popular video game titles such as Ocelot in Metal Gear Solid 3, Prince Valerian Mengsk in StarCraft II, the psychotic Destroyman in No More Heroes, and most recently, reprising his role of Spider-Man in Spider-Man: Edge of Time.
Josh will soon be fighting off hoards of zombies as the survivor Bryan in the upcoming Random Gibberish Zombie project: “And Then The Zombies Came…A Musical Apocalypse”.

Powerglove

In 2005, the members of a basement dwelling high school melodic death metal band decided on a whim to record some metal covers of video game and television songs.  These four kids from Boston put them on the internet and thought nothing would ever come of them.  Some fellow nerds would appreciate them hopefully, and life would resume grinding along at its petty pace.

 
But 5 years later, Powerglove is signed to the largest independant record label in North America, ready to debut their first major release; their second full length album "Saturday Morning Apocalypse."  They have a high profile management team, one of the biggest metal booking agents around, and their own lawyer.  They've toured extensively with the biggest power metal bands in the world (Dragonforce, Sonata Arctica, Hammerfall) and won over audiences of thousands that had never heard of them before with their insane cartoon and video game inspired stage show and no bullshit live performance ability.  Now their fanbase is growing every day and what seemed like the least likely band to find success in the modern, chaotic music industry is flourishing.
 
Instrumental Video Game and Cartoon Nostalgia Speed Metal: How the hell did that happen?
 
For the last five years, Powerglove has devoted every spare moment of their lives to creating the best video game, television and movie remixes they possibly can.  Each of their 2 studio albums took over a year of 16 hour-a-day-and-no-days-off hard labor and the effort can be heard in their progressive yet catchy arrangements, original riffs that blend seemlessly into famous nostalgic melodies, and their mantra of never using their musical ability purely for show but only to enhance the quality of the song itself.  Powerglove's approach has earned them a diverse fanbase, including metalheads who are in it for the headbanging glory, pure nerds who don't even listen to metal but make an exception for the criminally insane Boston quartet, and of course the super fans who fall into both categories and see the band as some kind of bizarre dream come true.
 
Over the years, Powerglove worked their way up the touring ladder beginning with debaucherous basement shows and house parties to touring the entire US and Canada many times over with established bands like Dragonforce, even before they had any label support or team behind them.  Even now Powerglove retains a strictly DIY ethic; producing their own albums, programming their own flash games, musical utilities and websites, directing their own art (with their inhumanly skilled artist friend Dave Rapoza), and in general micromanaging every aspect of their creative output like the nerds that they are.
 
On September 28th, 2010, Powerglove is set to break new ground again, with the major release of their cartoon and television themed album, Saturday Morning Apocalypse. In addition to 9 tracks of catchy, instrumental heavy metal (including the Batman theme, Inspector Gadget, This is Halloween from The Nightmare before Christmas, and the soundtrack to the original Transformers movie and television show,) this time Powerglove has enlisted the aid of famed Sonata Arctica singer Tony Kakko to provide vocals on 2 additional tracks: the ubiquitous Simpsons theme song and Gotta Catch Em All, the infamous opening theme from the original Pokemon television show.  Powerglove are no strangers to taking a ridiculous and silly concept and translating it into metal excellence, and they can't wait to tour across the universe again and make their audiences headbang and laugh ‘til they soil themselves at the same time once again.

LittleKuriboh

Martin "LittleKuriboh" Billany's origins have always been a mystery wrapped inside of an enigma. There are legends that this creator of such interwebs hits like "Yu-Gi-Oh: The Abridged Series", "Naruto: The Abridged Comedy Fandub Spoof Series Show", and the amazing hit webcomic  "The Tongue" hails from jolly ol' British Land of the British who are very British. Other tales have involved him being Slenderman's illegitimate son forced to lure in happy go lucky anime fans for daddy Slendy to feast upon. One story even spoke of how he would be the lone Kuriboh of the Apocolypse who would bring in a new era of terror and destruction with his amazing wit.
 
This year Youmacon has uncovered the truth about LittleKuriboh... his origins are as shocking and repulsive as you would expect from an internet deity of this size. Sadly we cannot tell you on this page out of fear that his many minions (Kroze) will kill us before we even post it for the universe to know and see what this THING really is and what he is capable of. For now we can only give you this little hint...
 

Kroze

We all know that chimpanzees and dolphins are very intelligent animals. But it's now time to add another surprising animal to that list: Kroze. Researchers have determined that, like humans, but unlike most other animals, Kroze can use tools and undergo complex reasoning in order to obtain food. In one study, researchers presented Kroze with meat that they would need to use a tool to get. All Kroze in this experiment figured out how to obtain the tool, and then how to use it to get meat. Amazingly, some Kroze did this on the first attempt, showing a level of reasoning more complex than even trial-and-error. That means Kroze may be even smarter than the great apes.
 
So next time you see a Kroze in a park, see if you can spot behavior that might tell you just what that Kroze is thinking.
 
 

Marianne Miller

Marianne very rarely stops talking, so when she realized that she could make money off of it, she immediately leapt at the chance to do so. Of course, just talking wasn't enough to get work in thevoiceover industry, so after many years in theatre (both musical and otherwise), Marianne got her first role in Fullmetal Alchemist and the Conquerer of Shamballa. Since then she has also received work as Leta, Tula and Lido in Dragon Age: Warden's fall, Yuuno Scrya in Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha (and Lyrical Nanoha A's), Qoo and Magna in Tweeny Witches, Kazuki in Zebraman, Anwar and Olly in Avalon code, as well as many others. She is also a classically trained singer and dabbles in on-camera work when she fits that "unique" look.

 
 
 

Drowtales

Linkara

In 2008, Lewis “Linkara” Lovhaug made a video critiquing an issue of the infamous Spider-Man “Clone Saga.”  Nobody watched it.  Then a few months later he was picked up by ThatGuyWithTheGlasses.com and people started watching him for some reason as he made more and more video reviews of awful comic books.  His show, Atop the Fourth Wall, rips apart the worst the comic book industry has produced over the last century and even a few of the good ones.  But people don’t care about that – they just want to know where he got that magic gun.

To compound matters, Atop the Fourth Wall even features a storyline where an internet reviewer faces off against robots, 

Lovecraftian horrors, and mad scientists, all in homage to the medium he loves.  Are the special effects awful?  You bet!

In addition, Linkara also has begun a retrospective on every season of Power Rangers, analyzing the themes, the action, the music, and basically everything that nobody ever wanted to think about before in relation to a show about guys in spandex and rubber hitting each other.  You think it’s weird for a grown man to be obsessed with a show meant for children?  Obviously you’ve never met any geeks before, have you?

  • Ryan "Inthul" Burke made his presence known at NECX 09 where he placed within top 50, out of 250 competitors. Not bad for someone who people have never heard of but after NECX 09, they did remember who he was. His style and high tier skill as he uses Fei Long to go through the other fighters is pure enjoyment to watch. He rocks his Bose headphones as he gets into the zone and putting fear into his opponents, but do not underestimate him because he is a pad player. He was asked what type of skill he would bring at every tourney. He said “100% Fei Long shenanigans.”
     
  • Sola "BurnYourBra" Adesui made an impact in the gaming community by placing 2nd in the All Female Invitational at EVO2k10. Born in Minnesota, Burn, as close friends know her, she started playing video games starting with the Atari as a way to pass time.
