I re-watched the first few episodes of Max Headroom
(the merciless) recently.
My more recent experience with Matt Frewer's voice was his Aussie accent on Eureka
, so I'd forgotten how very much Layne sounded like him.
And I was thinking about cheap plastic poncho and mask Halloween costumes, and I remembered that one of the very first things I bought Layne was a Max Headroom costume.
And hey, I wrote about that
! See, my tagging and memorying posts totally comes in handy.
This is always a bittersweet time of year for me - it's when I left. I miss a lot of people, but especially Layne. And it was so strange hearing Matt Frewer as Edison Carter, and remembering what it was like hearing that voice come from the previously-silent bishounen
punk rocker across the table, and how it made me smile.
