My 46th run-in with Eric Bauza

February 21st, 2007


Walking into the Nickelodeon main building, I ran into Eric Bauza heading out from an El Tigre record. Eric is a swell guy who I keep running into over the years, and I thought I would give a little shout out to him on our blog.

Not only is he an incredibly talented voice artist (Voice of “Stimpy” on The Adult Party Ren&Stimpy cartoons, and currently the voice of Rodolfo Rivera on Nick’s new series, El Tigre), he is also a fantabulous character designer and artist.

Eric wasn’t kidding when he said his blog needed to be updated, but his designs are very nifty. Mas por favor, Eric.

Keep an eye out on this guy. He’s going places.

Well, good news for those of you in “The Biz” who don’t have a Valentine’s Day date this year. A new dating site called “Cast-A-Date” (might as well be direct!) brings the casting couch right to your computer! Why waste your time going to “silly” auditions, when you can land parts by “dating” (loose term) casting directors and agents on the site!

I seriously thought this site was some desperate producer’s idea of a sick joke, but lo and behold, it’s real. Scarily real. Defamer has a great post about this today.

I wonder if there’s a category for artists and animators? Something tell me…not so much.

Happy Valentine’s Day!
