the fine folks at Kotaku found this frankly fun fact featuring fan favorite Charles Martinet better known as the fun and fancy free Mario Mario :
Charles Martinet, the voice of Mario since Super Mario 64, has announced that he's started working on his autobiography. He'll talk about creating the voice of Mario, doing the voice of Mario and, well, the voice of Mario. Yes, the book is bound to be infinitely better if you imagine Martinet reading it. He better call it "It'sa Me, Charles Martinet"!i feel like his voice should annoy me, but instead it just makes me feel like a kid again.
