I Scream, You Scream, We All Scream…exactly the same.


So I guess there is an inside joke in the sound design industry (the outside joke is that these cats were probably in the AV Club at your high school and were all tremendous dorks) that they like to sneak into movies.

The funny thing is, subconsciously that is exactly what I expect it to sound like when someone falls from something high. In fact, I’d be disappointed if it didn’t. For example:

As good as it was that the caller hit you with that “uh oh”, how much better would that have been if my man had hit you with “uhhhhaaaahhhhhhuh” on his way down. It just isn’t the same. It looks like his head hit that floor pretty crisply though. I appreciate the fact that “he’s up” rapidly became the standard for his health too. I guess you gotta be ready for the unexpected in showbiz.

    Haaa, that shit was hilarious. Uh oh, then that “I guess it’s a slipper pole”.. you mean the product is DANGEROUS?!! Riiight and that was a nice touch with the loyal ladder customer. I mean, who calls in to give props for a ladder.. Either it sucks or it’s a ladder, there’s no in between.
