How well could you maintain a relaxed and composed manner while being trapped without room to move, without light, and without human contact? Would a professional demeanor help to keep you sane? News Anchorite Marvin Harris has the story.

The intro and outro music is Theme 3, which was graciously provided by ReverendHerby, a prolific and talented artist from the Audio Portal.

All of the voice-acting was done by me, the Ragemar.

This is my second audio submission, and it was made for Newgrounds Voice Acting Contest #9, the theme of which is Horrible Jobs.

Update 10/05/12: I added the following storytelling ingredients to the meteorologist's part: conflict and pathos.

Dude, this was just hilarious. Deliciously silly.

The dialogue had a very natural flow to it, and the premise is just... so off-the-wall (or... IN-the-wall; nya HA. Nya HAHAHA.) that I can't help but love it. I also really liked how you managed to pull off distinct voices for each of the characters without resorting to silly voices or overly cliched foreign accents. Not many people can do that; so kudos to you, good sir!

And best of the luck in the competition!

Ragemar responds:

Thanks very much! Good luck to you as well. Though I doubt you'll need luck... since your stalwartly sublime submission speaks for itself!

Good job!
I really love the premise haha

Ragemar responds:

Thanks! I was originally going to do something else with a similar bent, wherein a job applicant didn't realize he was applying for a job in which he would be cemented inside of a wall to dispense wisdom to a quasi-religious order of monks. But this seemed funnier.
