Nerd Break! Listening To: Wilhelm Scream / Castle Thunder / Amen Break (While Watching Lights Blink in an Oft-recycled Sci-Fi Prop)

In order to provide some context for a blog post on a blinking lights prop we’ve all seen in dozens of different TV shows and movies, I opened different tabs for compilations of the Wilhelm scream, the castle thunder sound cue, and the Amen break drum solo.

All three of those sound effects are now playing at once, and I am watching the lights blink on this prop.

And for a moment, I felt so very happy.

I don’t really want to write about this prop anymore, I just want to be one with my nerdiness.
