The One About…JAT365

You have probably heard of James Arnold Taylor and never realized it in your life. So who is he? Well, he’s a voice actor, most famously as the voice of Obi-Wan Kenobi in Star War – The Clone Wars… or Johnny Test… or Fred Flintstone… or Ratchet in Ratchet and Clank… or Fred Flintstone… or the voice of Fox’s “Animation Domination” lineup…or…

The point is, you hear him. A lot. But you never see the guy behind the microphone, unless you go to a convention, or a Star Wars event like Star Wars Weekends, which used to be held at Disney’s Hollywood Studios until 2016. James used to give a wonderful one-man show called “Obi-Wan and Beyond” that talked about his voice acting, his work on Star Wars, and his own personal, positive message. Part how-to show, part motivational speech, it was an amazing show.

I was not surprised to find that a few years ago James had written a self-help book called JAT365. In it, he basically walks you through a year of positive affirmations and growth, told in James inimitable style.

Now self-help books are nice, but to be fair, there are lots of them. They all tend to be alike. But a video version? Read by the author? Available on YouTube?


Simply put. Do this.
