Bed squeaks whenever somebody's having sex.  Does everybody in Hollywood have a bad mattress?

WHen someone is typing on a computer, each keystroke beeps. 

Ooo...good one.  Similarly, how about when text is appearing on the screen (someone on the OTHER end is typing), it makes a typing, or other, sound.

In WAR GAMES, the text sound effects were cool.  In all other movies, they are just teh lamers.

The sound effect I've always hated is the that really annoying scream that's like "NNNNRRRRAAAAAAWWWWWW!"

I even heard it on a promo for one of the CSI series not to long ago when someone fell (or was pushed, whatever, I hate those shows) off a building. Totally distracted from anything else they tried to get across.

As for old style video game noises, do the producers have to license the use of sound effects just like they would music? Or maybe it's the same as using lookalike products or blocking parts of logos of real products that aren't paid product placements. Are the Atari 2600 noise free to use or in lots of sound effects compilations that post production studios use? When I hear the wrong noises, I just pretend they're playing an emulator of old school games. Why anyone would want to still play Pac-Man 2600 style I have no idea.

I recently learned the reason so many people keep a donkey or two in with their cows and horses is that cows and horses will run from a coyote but a donkey will stand its ground and fight.

 I thought is was because the donkeys were just so darn cute.

Nope. Donkeys cost money to care for and feed the same as other livestock, unless the owner has money to burn those jackasses are there for a reason. Donkeys and dogs don't mix either, that's one of the reasons I didn't get my dog back from my friends when I moved here. I'd never forgive myself if that little Jack Russell Terrier (a breed that acts like it's a bigger dog than it is) got through or under the fence and met up with a donkey. I saw that cute friendly playful jack I mentioned turn stone cold and ready to kill when the neighbor's barky but harmless dog got his attention one day. The dog was across the fence and on the other side of the road still in it's yard, lucky for her.

blah blah stuff blah blah obscure pop culture reference blah blah clever turn of phrase blah blah bad pun blah blah bad link blah blah zzzz.....

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
