The Wilhelm scream is a film and television stock sound effect that has been used in more than 200 movies, beginning in 1951 for the film Distant Drums.[1] The scream is often used when someone is shot, falls from a great height, or is thrown from an explosion.

Most likely voiced by actor and singer Sheb Wooley, the sound is named after Private Wilhelm, a character in The Charge at Feather River, a 1953 western in which the character gets shot with an arrow. This was its first use from the Warner Bros. stock sound library, although The Charge at Feather River is believed to have been the third movie to use the effect.[2]

The effect gained new popularity (its use often becoming an in-joke) after it was used in Star Wars, the Indiana Jones series, Disney cartoons and many other blockbuster films as well as many television programs and video games.[3]

In what is perhaps an in-joke within an in-joke, one of the scenes from Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom actually features a man being eaten by an alligator accompanied by the scream.

Was Fiverr a valid option for design work after all? There was only one way to find out: pose as a company, and hire one of their designers myself. And best of all, it would only cost me $5. (via The $5 Logo)

“Carousels are effective at being able to tell people in Marketing/Senior Management that their latest idea is on the Home Page.

Use them to put content that users will ignore on your Home Page.

Or, if you prefer, don’t use them. Ever.”


Should I Use A Carousel?

Great explanation of why not to use carousels presented as a carousel (and hence, very frustrating). It surprises me that more people don’t know there is tons of data out there about what works and what doesn’t on websites. Or that they can test themselves. Web != print…

(and to all you drivers who stop at rotaries, yield != stop.)

There’s more art on the Internet than in every gallery and museum on Earth. But many of these beautiful objects are trapped. They’re trapped inside of devices like our phones, our tablets, our TVs, our laptops — devices designed for distraction, living between texts, tweets, football games and emails from work. So we’re making a new way to bring art from the Internet into your home.

Electric Objects - A Computer Made For Art

This is pretty awesome. I’d like to see a software component so I could do this with my old stuff.

Semi-related, I’d like to see some android builds that were made for similar purposes. $50 trade-in on a phone isn’t worth it if I could have used my phone to control my lights/nest/wemo etc. A new controller to do the same thing would cost more than $50, and the phone would be a better tool from a tech perspective.

I have 3 old phones mounted throughout my house for this purpose, but I haven’t created a custom build for them…
