In a world, RIP

Don LaFontaine, the voice of countless movie trailers, is dead at 68. I liked this tribute from the Washington Post:

In a world of people who all have some sort of private omniscient voice-over running things inside their heads, sometimes God, sometimes Mom, and sometimes Don LaFontaine…

In a world where marketing is far more important than content…came one man…with a Voice.

Check out a brief bio video of LaFontaine with his voice in action.
