(WHISTLES APPRECIATIVELY)

Posted in Uncategorized at 10:37 pm by Ian

The guys who did the closed-captioning for Wall-E must have had a blast. So far I’ve seen:

(WHIRRING)
(GRUNTING)
(EXCLAIMS CURIUSLY)
(CHATTERING)
(HUMMING)
(WALL-E WHISTLES)

And that was just in the first five minutes. So, lots of enthusiasm there. But the style guide leaves something to be desired. Four gerunds, then one odd one in the present tense. And, of course there’s the bizarre inclusion of “Wall-E” as the subject of the one.

Now:

(COCKROACH SQUEAKING HAPPILY)

I never knew what a cockroach sounded like when it was happy before. But it’s pretty cute. I don’t know why people complain about them so much. Maybe they’re not usually very happy.
