Night Vale Live: Condos, Version 2  
Last night the talented cast and crew of Welcome to Night Vale did a live show in Brooklyn. They performed a revised version of "Condos" that featured more Carlos as last night's performance was also the debut of a new Carlos.


I'll always have a special place in my heart for Jeffrey Cranor's Carlos. His voice is still the one I hear when I think about the character. BUT, Dylan Marron who is now the new Carlos is none too shabby. Now that Carlos is being performed by an actor, the writers have given him a few more lines in this episode, including a monologue as well as an awesomely sweet telephone conversation with Cecil.

I'm not sure what other changes they made to this episode since the only videos I've been able to find feature the Cecil/Carlos parts plus one with Hiram McDaniels (love it!). I rather liked hearing the Marron!Carlos rendition of describing the condos. And I never get sick of hearing Cecil's "AND I SAID YES! YES!" to Carlos' suggestion that they move in together. I can't wait to hear the entire live show eventually.


Catch some clips HERE.

Weird. The videos are still up. Here are direct links. Do they work?

Part 1: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mVZv2igdqLE
Part 2: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mVZv2igdqLE
Part 3: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PBMOPdnnFBg
Part 4: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2N9vrD0MwWM

There's a new phone conversation between Carlos and Cecil where they deal with why Carlos sounds different (it's not in the video but the description said that he had his vocal cords switched out because...throat spiders. Yeah. Obviously.)

Oh, yes - the vids are link-only so not on the account but I found them on Tumblr. But thanks for linking them! ^_^

Eeeeeee his voice is similar enough that it doesn't freak me out (he's imitating JC's inflection a bit, I think), and also HE LISTENS TO CECIL'S SHOW AND CECIL DIDN'T KNOW...excuse me. Fangirlgasm. I'll be better in a bit. Now I'm just going to sit here squeeing like an idiot for a while.)

(how is this live recording working? will there be a laugh track on the actual episode...? so curious...)

ETA: and I like his dazed I-got-a-condo voice! the "giant black cube" line isn't quiiiiiite as great but yeah, he'll do :D :D :D

(he doesn't look like Carlos much more than JC does but then Cecil Baldwin doesn't look like Cecil so that's okay)

(okay I will stop spamming your comments now...! ^^;;)

I...sort of squee'd my heart out during that exchange. Also, I loved Cecil's, "Hold on. I'm REALLY sorry, listeners." HAHAHA!!!

And the almost "I love you." THE ALMOST "I LOVE YOU."

how is this live recording working? will there be a laugh track on the actual episode...? so curious...

I know. I sort of like the laugh track when I have a visual to go with it but just hearing it might start to feel a little annoying.

He looks NOTHING like the way I envision Carlos but yeah, neither does Cecil Baldwin as Cecil Palmer so my Night Vale loving brain can totally take it.

THE I LOVE Y-- OMGGGGGGGGGGGG.

It's so cool to have the different readings and versions of this ep, can't wait to have the full recorded version. (It's funny, CB's voice in the ending monologue is really different from the bookstore live show, and some of that I think might be just recording quality, but he's also doing a totally alternate reading.)

And Carlos's monologue - OH CARLOS YOU ARE SO SPECIAL. You are as philosophical as your boyfriend. Scientifically speaking.

ALSO 19 STANDARD FATALITY UNITS AHAHAHAHAH.

And yeah, the laugh track I'm used to from Cabin Pressure, but for Night Vale it's jarring...

And VAs rarely look like their chars, I'm used to that! My internal Carlos and Cecil are both late-30s-ish so yeah, not these guys, but this Carlos's voice can definitely be my Carlos's, so it's all good \o/

I like that we get a better insight into how Carlos thinks. It's obviously scientific but he's also a little off kilter like Cecil. I now can totally see how the two of them are a couple. Beyond just the show telling me they're a couple.
