Someone made a compilation of a bunch of times you screamed "Ancient Egypt!!!" Was this just random humor or is this a reference I'm not getting.
Not exactly random - I just noticed that an inordinate number of things coming from ancient Egypt (curses, mummies, dark magic, card games) were very evil and always attacking present-day America, so I made up this thing that Ancient Egypt is waging war with the future.
There’s an interesting thing: One of the people that John Williams takes inspiration from is Johann Strauss II (the guy most people may remember for “the Blue Danube”).
Well, he also composed this:
This is (in case tumblr takes forever to load the embedded video, or you just don’t want to click) the egyptian march. And yes, it can’t deny its european roots, as it’s composed for a “classical” orchestra.
