Throwback Thursday - Snausages, Cereal, & The Wilhelm Scream

I collected three unrelated videos this week from YouTube with the first being from the The Museum of Classic Chicago Television YouTube channel and titled "Snausages (Commercial, 1984)."  It's weird.


Also, Sam Strouth shares an "Extremely Creepy 1960s Cereal Commercial."  Weirder still!



Finally, from the CINExcellence YouTube channel, they gathered many of the examples of the use of The Wilhelm Scream, "a stock sound effect of a man screaming that has been used in more than 225 movies and television episodes, beginning in 1951 for the film Distant Drums."  Now that's really weird and you'll always hear it now!



A look back at early tabletop hobby gaming
 or gaming-adjacent topics of the past.

Sunday Funnies - Traps, Opposites, & Idols

Over on dazzy-p.deviantart.com, Darren Pepper gives us "Strip 90 of By The Gods!" here.


Also, on uptofourplayers.com, they explore "Opposites" here.


Finally, it's been shared around Facebook and elsewhere for a while but I don't think I've shared it here, so here is a meme of Bob Ross painting a picture of the idol from the First Edition Dungeons & Dragons Players Handbook.  Enjoy!
