What’s in a Name?

Jonathan Murphy Name Change

2016 is already shaping up to be an exciting year! I am proud to announce that I am a member of SAG-AFTRA and couldn’t be happier about being part of the combined Screen Actors Guild and the American Federation of Television and Radio Artists:

We are actors, announcers, broadcast journalists, dancers, dj’s, news writers, news directors, program hosts, puppeteers, recording artists, singers, stunt performers, voiceover artists and other media professionals. Our work is seen and heard in theaters, on television and radio, sound recordings, the internet, games, mobile devices, home video: you see us and hear us on all media distribution platforms. We are the faces and the voices that entertain and inform America and the world.

I looking forward to adding my voice!

When you have two common names…Jonathan…Murphy, it stands to reason that there is someone already using that name professionally. Yes, there’s already a Jonathan Murphy, and he’s representing the name well and doing great work. So though I will always be Jonathan Murphy to friends and family, my new professional name is Jonathan Cormur. The last name is a mashup of part of my middle and last name so it has meaning and connection for me.

So like the rose, I hope that whatever you call me, I’ll be just as sweet. 😉

Monday Morning Message: George R. R. Martin on Writing

Game of Thrones

“The odd thing about being a writer is you do tend to lose yourself in your books. Sometimes it seems like real life is flickering by and you’re hardly a part of it. You remember the events in your books better than you remember the events that actually took place when you were writing them.”

George R. R. Martin

Dorktales: Classic Storytelling with a Geekish Twist

Geek Club Books: Dorktales

The Three Little…HOGS? Who has ever heard of that? According to Mr. Redge, it’s a classic tale from the fairy tale cannon! According to Percy, “It’s epic, man!”

It’s the first of an original script created exclusively for Geek Club Books by Karen Simpson Gardiner with audio recording and editing by Michael Meyer.

Mr. Redge and I are the “storytellers” and we share the classic tale of three little pigs…I mean…hedgehogs. I voice all the characters:

  • Porky, a goofy, lovable hedgehog who builds his house of straw
  • Percy, who’s more amped about surfing, dude, than building, so it’s sticks for him
  • Peregrin, the uber-brain who knows how to use a rapier and outfox a wolf
  • And, the wolf who is just doin’ his wolfy thing

The audio recording is available for FREE download to all of Geek Club Books subscribers.
