COMMENTERS: You already know Eli’s. What is YOUR “mating call.” Alternately, what is the “song of your people.”
When my Patreon reaches $2000/month I’m going to release a new podcast where upon I interview my 7 years old daughter as she reads through the Harry Potter series. It’s called Potter And Daughter and it’s awesomefreakinadorableashell! More details HERE.
Calling all Whovians with holes in their ears! Just look at these Dalek earrings my wife made! They’re in her Etsy store and ready to EXTERMINATE your… lack of perfect ear jewelry?
According to Kim, it's "The Fifth Element" and/or "The Chronicles of Riddick" and the crunch of Triscuits.
In the early days of DVD ownership, I would always calibrate my surround sound system with the after-opera battle scene of The Fifth Element.
Good call. Me being me, I've used a Speedhunters DVD on the old Audi R8 endurace racer at Le Mans. The scream of the car panning through the channels as it goes down the Mulsanne? Oh, yeah.
I need to see what Rush (the recent movie, not the Canadian music icons) does for it. In the theater, the surround was awesome. 1976 F1 cars mic'd & mixed with 2013 technology? YES PLEASE!
The poop was calling from inside the house the whole time!
Better inside than outside… wait.
Hmmm…either Futurama references or "More Than Meets The Eye!"
Pretty sure the call of my people is the theme song to "Red Dwarf".
–Song. The song of my people. Sorry. It's late.
It's cold outside, there's no kind of atmosphere…
I'm all alone, more or less…
Let me fly, far away from here…
fun, fun, fun, in the sun, sun, sun…
I want to lie, shipwrecked and comatose,
Drinking fresh mango juice…
Goldfish shoals, nibbling at my toes
Fun, fun, fun, In the sun, sun, sun,
My mating call would have to be the sound of tape being lifted from a bagged comic.
However, the song of my people has always been Rocky Mountain Way.
It changes but the middle of the Firefly theme song is currently my ringtone. So that's something.
That Roomba has a duty. It has a large duty. And it keep that duty inside itself.
Currently it's "I am the Doctor" from the Eleventh Hour.
"For I am Mars, the god of War, and I… will cut… you down."
"Tush" by ZZTop…
Alternatively, "Future ex-girlfriend" by Voltaire
So I have to ask… What does the vocal production of "???" sounds like?
Good question. In my mind it was more of an inaudible gasp. A quizzical facial expression that seems like it should have an accompanying noise, but doesnt.
Like a gasping, fish out of water, utterly confused, and perhaps bumfuzzled expression?
Side note: Your work is perfection. This poop story arc is genius. Keep it up.
Yeah, you've basically got it.
Also, thank you. That's very kind of you to say.
I always "hear" it as the windows error 'bonk!'
I always imagine the ??? sounding like a more confused "HHMM?"
Well…we used "Top Gun Anthem" for the groom's march at my wedding. I figured "Danger Zone" sent the wrong message.
That's pretty rad. We played piano arrangements of Radiohead before our wedding. My wife walked down the aisle to Somewhere Over the Rainbow on classical guitar and we went back down the aisle to Linus and Lucy.
Among my family, we use Monty Python quotes, our favorites being from The Spanish Inquisition, Holy Grail, and the Argument Clinic. My friends and I use Transformers quotes, AC/DC lyrics, and one time, we used lines from "Pinky and the Brain".
Narf. Narf, indeed.
or alternatively…."You've got the touch…"
