"In a world" where the Voice of God is silenced.... 

It's almost impossible to imagine going to the movies or watching many TV networks, without hearing the voice of Don LaFontaine. The voiceover master and creator of the much loved/much parodied "In a world..." trailers died today at the age of 68. I'm really stunned.

Here's his story in a nutshell, and in his own words:

Setting aside my general adoration of people with amazing voices, LaFontaine in particular seemed like a hell of a guy. He had a great sense of humor about his job, as evidenced in his Geico commerical, and several hilarious Family Guy gags, which unfortunately I can't find on YouTube.

He'll be greatly missed, even by those who only subconsciously realize they're missing him.
