Maddie Blaustein?  
Apparently some emails have circulated around claiming Maddie Blaustein, the former voice of Meowth, passed away earlier this week. I know for sure Joe from Serebii has gotten one.

I'm calling bullshit on this because it sounds like the "Veronica Taylor is Ash again" rumour that went around a few months ago.... but nobody can know for sure... has ANYONE heard ANYTHING about this?

I call BS! My BS alarm is going off like crazy.

Wiki says she's still alive... and when did these "Veronica Taylor is Ash again" rumours happen, I know nothing about them.

The rumours circulated prior to the airing of "Crossing Paths!" (the episode where Jessie releases Dustox) It was right after Sarah Natochenny had gotten in (real) trouble for posting explicit pictures of herself online and presumably fired, then people recieved emails that apparently were from Veronica saying she was back as Ash as of that episode, which was then incorrectly titled "Dustox in the Wind!" These emails were sent using a site called WillSelfDestruct.com in order to prevent forwarding.

I spoke to Veronica face to face at NYAF shortly thereafter and she was surprised when I told her of these events. She knew nothing about about them and was rightfully pretty disgusted.

Interesting. I see.

If it was true her myspace account that shows up in a quick Google search would be full of 'RIP' and stuff. No such thing, so it's probably a lie.

What a messed up thing to lie about.
Nandosagienigma_shadow1 on December 15th, 2008 03:33 am (UTC)
i know.

I wouldn't be surprised if it's the same person(s) who screwed up people with the Veronica thing.

I second that--she has an active MySpace page (at least it was active last time I checked) and so do a lot of the other 4Kids VAs. At least one of them would have said something.

I suppose someone could call 4Kids tomorrow and ask them directly, but it's probably needless.

definite bullshit
Also, I had no idea she was transgendered~ that's awesome.

Re: definite bullshit
Yeah, she said that she really connected with meowth because of it, if I remember correctly.

Very interesting. :)

Re: definite bullshit
Yeah, she said that recording "Go West Young Meowth" was what gave her the guts to come out, and that her coworkers were really supportive. And that's awesome.

Re: definite bullshit
Aww, I'm glad her co-workers were supportive for her. :)

I've been looking all over the place and have found no confirmation of this. However, Joe of Serebii.net has gone ahead and posted this as an announcement/update or whatever. Maybe he knows something I don't.

Hopefully he would have enough sense to make sure this is 100% confirmed before he posted it on the webpage. This is serious shit.

He claims to have managed to comfirmed it from other sources... we shall see...

I'm scared for her, I hope it isn't true.
evilraichu: disturbiaevil_raichu on December 16th, 2008 06:20 pm (UTC)
I think he ought to name his so-called trusted sources, since this is a pretty worrisome and serious circumstance.
Denali Lobitagrowly on December 16th, 2008 06:22 pm (UTC)
I'm inclined to think it's a false rumor, since 48 is way too young to just pass in your sleep without being really sick prior.
evilraichu: what traceyevil_raichu on December 16th, 2008 09:46 pm (UTC)
That's what I thought, too. The only thing nagging at the back of my mind is that I wonder if "passing in her sleep" is related to something more serious, a la Heath Ledger.
INTERNETFRIEND: UI-168A: CHARMELEONarremmmdee on December 16th, 2008 06:46 pm (UTC)
I can't find it ANYWHERE else on the internets. I hate when he pulls his 'secret source' bullshit. If you found it tell us how or include a link, for God's sake.

But then he probably gets off to us having no choice but to take him at face value.

Make of it what you will... things really aren't looking too good, though.
evilraichuevil_raichu on December 16th, 2008 09:44 pm (UTC)
I keep trying to look at that but it says the server is too busy.

Have any other sources on the internet said anything about it? I've been searching all day.
evilraichuevil_raichu on December 16th, 2008 10:23 pm (UTC)
Edit: I see it now. This is disturbing. I still don't want to believe it, though.
