What are Mike's must-have items at a Voice-Over session? Here are some of the quirky things you might want to buy to be more like Mike!

  When you're in the booth, it's important to stay hydrated. And if you're drinking from a cup or a mug, it's even more important to prevent spills that might stain a client's carpet. Use a Bell CO51 Octopus Cup Holder to avoid a messy situation! They make great studiowarming gifts for your favorite clients. For all your cup-holding needs. 
  Voice-over experts agree you should bring a bottle of water with you to every session. But only one experts suggests you should wear it, with the help of an EK Bottle Cat. For all your bottle-holding needs. 
 
Why drink boring bottled water when you can citrus it up with the magical taste of True Lemon, Lime, Orange & Grapefruit? I can't think of a reason. For all your water-flavoring needs.

  When voicing wacky animated characters, Mike likes to wear headphones that don't get in the way. He stocks up on these Sony MDR-AS200 Sports Headphones. For all your headphone needs.
  If your headphones have an 1/8" plug but you're in a booth with a 1/4" jack, you're gonna need an adapter. This Hosa MHE325 Female TRS 1/8-Inch to Male TRS 1/4-Inch Headphone Adapter Cable will not only adapt but it'll give you an extra 25 feet to walk around! For all your adapting needs. 
  If you've got 25 feet of cable (and who doesn't?) how are you going to keep it tangle-free while bopping from place to place? With a Large Cable Turtle Organizer, of course! For all your cable-organizing needs. 
  Last minute copy changes? Not a problem with the miraculous Pilot FriXion Point Erasable Gel Pens! How do they do it? Believe me, you don't wanna know! For all your erasable pen needs.  
  And for run-of-the-mill handwriting, you can't beat the high-tech wizardry of the Trekker Space Pen by Fisher in Chrome. For all your Space Pen needs. 
  Prone to congestion due to colds, allergies or just heredity? Break out an Olbas Inhaler and make everyone say, "what's that smell?" For all your nasal inhaler needs. 
  Working with a bad throat is never a good idea. Thayers Slippery Elm Lozenges soothe my minor vocal irritations, and keep the little hoarses at bay. And they're non-mentholated, which works for Mike, because menthol's not good for your throat. (but it's okay for your nose. See above.) For all your throat-soothing needs. 
 http://www.scottevest.com/mm5/merchant.mvc?Screen=SFNT&Store_Code=sev&AFFIL=l1T8K75g   And now that you've got all of Mike's favorite stuff, how are you supposed to carry it all? There's only one possible answer! The Scottevest Travel Vest for Men. For all your travel vest needs. 
  Mike's got a way with accents. Think you can get away with doing them, too? Then keep this handy reference book and CD, Accents: A Manual for Actors- Revised and Expanded Edition, handy. For all your accent needs. 
  Need to correctly pronounce English? Do you need American English or British English? Here's an excellent reference for both: Cambridge English Pronouncing Dictionary. For all your English pronunciation needs.

  Voice talent of a certain age may find the print on the copy getting a little too small, or their arms getting a little too short. A pair of CliC Adjustable Front Connect Readers will clear that right up! For all your reader needs. 
  You'll never be late for an audition or booking when you're wearing the radio-controlled Casio Men's Waveceptor Atomic Digital Watch. For all your digital watch needs. 
  Whether recording from home or remotely almost anywhere, the Blue Microphones Yeti USB Microphone - Silver Edition has proven to be a reliable little workhorse. Mike's recorded broadcast-quality commercials, cartoons, audiobooks and video games on it. They're so reasonably priced, he owns three! For all your microphone needs. 
  Isolate it from shocks with a Blue Microphones Radius Microphone Shock Mount. For all your shock-mounting needs. 
  Add filter your pops with a Stedman PS101 Metal Pop Filter. For all your pop-filtering needs. 
  Slow day at the studio? Challenge a friend or colleague to a thrilling round of Arm Wrestle Mania. No arms will be injured in the playing of this game. For all your handheld arm wrestling needs.
