Voices Carry

I am sitting here watching one of the many shows I now watch on Wednesday nights (are you sensing a television theme here? I just realized this), and a commercial for some wildlife preservation or something came on. And the voice? The voice is that of Campbell Scott, also known as Steve "I was no where near your neighborhood" from Singles, one of the greatest grunge movies ever.

I am not sure whether to jump for joy or feel a little embarrassed that I knew, almost from the first word, that it was Campbell. How can I remember his voice when I can barely remember what I did yesterday? Why does his voice resonate while I can barely remember what my grandmothers sounded like, even though I heard them much more than I ever heard him? It is really weird, and kind of ooking me out.
