Icons - Sean Schemmel Part 1

Post by Geekdom101 » Wed Jul 18, 2018 10:59 pm

https://youtu.be/BmMmvieMEjc


Probably the most candid interview Sean Schemmel has ever done - and its with me. LOTS of people misunderstand this guy and this is a VERY important interview, and its just Part 1.

First Chris Ayres and now Sean himself?! I'm definitely watching this as soon as I can.


Also you're going to have to interview yourself because you're quickly becoming a Dragon Ball Icon. :lol: :thumbup:

Oh I'll have to watch those at some point too. Yeah, you're the YouTuber I watch to keep up with all the latest Dragon Ball info, as well as other stuff. The World of Geekdom channel is great too.

Having watched the interview, it showed a lot of very interesting stuff about Sean Schemmel as a person. He seems like a very intelligent person, and he's had a lot of interesting experiences in his life and it's fun to hear about them. It's also cool to hear that he is a very musically talented person, as it shows that sound in general has always been a big part of his life.

Btw his laugh sounds almost exactly like Goku at times.

Sean's a real character. The way he talks reminds me of a teenager, albeit much brighter and more philosophically minded. I was listening to it earlier at work and had to stop because it's not the sort of thing you can just have on the background. He just talks so fast and so frenetically jumping from topic to topic, it's insane. Like, oh he's talking about his views on the nature of free will and the way marketing people override your brain, okay. Wait, why did he bring up sharia law? What's this about puppets? Chris Sabat likes Mozart, but he finds him homogenous and boring? Jesus Sean, take a breath!

This has done a good job of contextualising Sean's personality. He's been controversial lately among the fandom because of his online discourse, and while it's only touched on briefly here, I feel I have a better understanding of why he reacts the way he does to certain things. I can't imagine what this interview might be like for a casual fan who isn't aware of any of that and just wanted to hear Goku's voice actor talk about doing the Super Saiyan 3 scream. I'm looking forward to part 2.

There are so many layers to this guy and there's stuff that happened to him as a kid that we couldn't talk about that explain why he is the way he is.

I admit, I haven't watched much of your content overall Geekdom, but this one? This one I'm gonna have to check out, especially if (as it certainly sounds like it does) it starts to dig into the kind of stuff that voice actor's don't always get to talk about. It could certainly go a long way in reconciling a bit of the image that has unfortunately started to come up in regards to Schemmel.

Will likely be waiting until both parts are out before I check out this first one though, that way I can listen to them back-to-back. Should make perfect background audio for while I'm gaming. :thumbup:

Maybe! The issue is he talks fast! So it might break your concentration.

You've also had an interview with Mike McFarland (Roshi, Baby, Android 8, Yajirobe, and others).

Anyways, great interview! I knew of Schemmel's ability to play the French horn from the promos he and Sabat exchanged before their FighterZ duel.
It was nice to learn more about that part of his background.

I think I'll wait for Part 2 to come out much like Gyt Kaliba.

Although while I'll probably understand why Schemmel acts the way he does, I probably won't ever understand his problem with three other people.

You know why you won't understand?

Because he doesn't have a problem with three other people. But that wont stop fans from making up nonsense about the guy.

It's a good interview, I can definitely see why people would think Schemmel has issues with the other English Goku actors and it'd be nice for him to clear that up, but I never expect him to address that, and certainly not in an interview like this.

I think you made the most of the opportunity and I'm looking forward to part 2.

Yeah well guess what?

He's addressing it in part 2.

Exclusively. With me. Nobody else. Youre going to get the entire story.
