You’ve reached Jon, please leave a message -Duke Nukem

Jon with his Duke Nukem babes at PAX Seattle
Game Bandits has a great article on a popular voice of the upcoming Duke Nukem Forever game. I saw an article a few years ago that stuck in my mind about some Gamers hiring Jon St John for some voice over work for a mod they were working on. I believe this is the correct link.

This got me thinking of getting a ‘celebrity’ voice greeting for my AT&T mobile voicemail mailbox. So, last April I decided to throw caution to the wind and pay a whopping $50 to hire Jon St. John in his voice for a 30 seconds worth audio. There’s a disclaimer on his site that it’s for ‘private use only’ and I feel that my persona voicemail greeting is private, since you’d have to know my phone number.

Jon was really great to work with, and was quick to deliver the audio. I took the audio and thanks to a few tricks that I’ll document sometime, was able to get the file, in high quality, back into the AT&T voicemail system.

Hit requires a JailBroken iPhone, the iFile app from Cydia or similar way to access file system, a conversion of the delivered audio to .amr and a visit to: /var/mobile/Library/Voicemail
