Picking up from the comment that KILLED THE ENTIRE THREAD, GOOD JOB YOU HORRIBLE PERSON YOU.

In my day, it was waaaah waah waaaaaaah. "Womp womp" took me a while to figure out. People are just bad at onomatopoeia(holy crap I spelled that correctly first try! I deserve a medal.)

Also, another query - why the lack of capitalization?

In my opinion, holding off on proper caps make situations where you bust into all caps that much more explosive.

No caps are movies.
All caps are BAD BOYS II.

lack of caps is part of my internet voice...my internet affect, if you will. there's a certain way i'm saying these things and large, blocky capital letters aren't part of that.

it's hard for me to put a finger on what exactly it is i'm trying to convey by using no caps, but know at least that it is 100% deliberate.

alternatively: what stank said.

i also just realized that the quote in my sig is in all caps. my sig is from a time when i was being hyperaggressively mean on this board because i assumed everyone thought i was a huge jerk and wanted to fill out the caricature.

i don't have time for caricatures anymore. i'd rather figure out who i am (whatever the **** that means) and be that, rather than become an overwrought version of how i believe the world reflects on me. you'd be surprised at how much difficulty i have not doing the latter -- or maybe you wouldn't be.

i was going to apologize for the sudden public introspection, but also i'm okay with this immediately turning into a ~feelings~ thread, if only so i feel less alone.

COME ON PEOPLE, FEEL TOGETHER

(see? what stank said.)

I think it's a trombone with a plunger mute.

"aaaaaaa" would be high pitched, like a whining siren. "aaaahh" has the h softening the sound on the end, and drawing it down an octave in my mind into a range more like a trombone. Not to mention that having a hard consonant, "p" on the end of the sound just doesn't fit with the way a note from a brass instrument would ring out, unless muted I guess. But that sad sound isn't hard muted, just soft muted before starting the next note. The last one rings out a bit. Hard consonants suggest a sudden end to a sound, much like the way they suddenly end a word. Moo, for instance, doesn't end as crisply as mop.

Also, the actual sound is often done by trumpet or trombone. And yeah, you need a mute.

Trombone is more common I think, the lower pitched one.

After watching Vicious, my girlfriend and I have decided that we're going to be two bitter gay British men when we get older.

It seems like such the life.
