When the grape soda and chocolate donuts are gone, then you better get out of my way.

I realize I may have posted this here before, but I wanted to remind everyone about today and one of the greats that was taken too soon.
On June 12th A Moment of Silence for Chris Latta
On Friday June 12th, at 2 P.M. The MS. Gulf Coast G.I.JOE Collector's Club will take a 3 minute period of Silence to Honor Chris Latta.
Born Christopher Lawrence Latta and adopted by his stepfather as Christopher Charles Collins, he gained notoriety as the voice of Gung-Ho and Cobra Commander,and Dreadnok Ripper as well as Wheeljack and Starscream on Transformers, and the original Moe and Mr. Burns on The Simpsons. He died on June 12, 1994 of a cerebral hemorrhage after a long illness.
He will always be this fan's Cobra Commander

Gung Ho... I guess it's so ironic when the two of them go at it:

Cobra commander and Starscream were always my favorite voices on the old sunbow shows, I will remember him with great respect.

Resolute guy did pretty nice homage to Latte mixed with the darker personality, but otherwise it's impossible. The guy's voice is just so distinct. It really says something that Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, Kermit the Frog and many of Mel Blanc's character's have found at least passable successors, while CC and Starscream simply can't be imitated.
Always loved how those two had a similar voice, as well as Cravex on The Vinsoonaries mini-series.
Latta + Hasbro for the win, for all time.

Latta's voice will echo for generations to come. Encapsulated in clunky 80s VHS tapes, DVD compact discs, iTouch, Mpegs, you get the point. His voice is here to stay. And will always be close by - just a touch away at the iPod or a simple over-the-shoulder glance at treasured trinkets of our childhood past. Obviously our toys and toons are filled with much life. Latta shall live on - in many more ways than one.
