Break it Down

Last night a human and I finished catching up with Once Upon a Time –which surprisingly is a very good show, with excellent, well-dressed villains, and starts airing new episodes on Jan 8, check your local listings– so had to scrounge around for alternative shit to watch. Dexter was too much of a time commitment, and CERTAIN people have a limited tolerance for real life murdershows, and Ahh! Real Monsters was still downloading, so instead we watched documentaries on YouTube, like normal people.
The above vidya is one of the things we watched, a brief history of the Amen Break — which I promise you all know very well even if you don’t know you know it. As an added bonus Nate Harrison (the disembodied voice guy/filmmaker) unpacks and puts the righteous hate on current copyright law, oh what fun!
This of course led to discussions of other ubiquitous but rarely-isolated sounds, specifically screams.
Although I must say, I prefer the scream officially known as “Man, Gut-Wrenching Scream and Fall into Distance,” also known as the Howie Long Scream or simply the “Youraagh.”
Learning! TASTES GOOD DOESN’T IT.
