Nice. The random grunts, shrieks and exclamations are a lot like Dirk's from Dragon's Lair.

What's remarkable is how much more substantial each moment is with realistic sound. With just the theme music they flash by like little visual stings that barely register. In this they're like scenes.

Sure. Remove the theme music. Then what do I listen to in my head when I'm at a first date's house and I use the toilet, and it doesn't flush...and all I have with me is a paperclip and large cat.

The same thing we listen to every night, brain. Goat screams, wilhelm screams, random grunts and a Michael Bay explosion.

You're brave. When I went to a first date's house, I was only courageous enough to bring a small rodent with me.

I didn't realise how recognisable the Indiana Jones theme is until I heard MacGyver cheerily whistling the first four notes while scaling a cliff-face.

Also the derpy laugh when he smiles over his credit is very MST3K, therefore hilarious.

Ever since I listened to a podcast a while back that pointed out how ludicrous "No Copyright Infringement Intended" is in the description of a Youtube video I can't help seeing it everywhere. Oh, and no, saying that will not ward off people that want to make you remove your videos and sue you. Even if your videos are great.

Wow, ok, you just sent me on a looong run of videos. Wonderful stuff! What a time suck!

Good thing I'm at work.

I inexplicably love the little squeak as he rests his arm on the airplane prop just before his credit comes up.

I would love to see a comedy show where in only one episode they have this level of sound design with no music and every little squeak and burp immortalized. I don't care if they use the straight audio from the set or if they get a couple of professionals to do this, but I want this and I want the fact they did it to be completely unaddressed.

"Macgyver, we've lost our BMI/ASCAP license, can't use music and now need to do something different with the opening credits of your TV Show. Any ideas?"

"Funny you should ask..."

I can think of three ways to solve this (four if I have my Swiss army knife). I can guarantee that the cat wont like any of them.

The classic story from my two former roommates when the three of us rented a house together:

"William, my toilet is broken. I need a couple of things from you to fix it."
"Okay. What do you need?"
"I'm gonna need a paperclip, a pair of needle nose pliers, and the entire apparatus from your toilet tank."

I'm loving I Want To Break Free.

(Also enjoyed this far more than I expected.)
