Class, today we examine the North American birder.

Hold onto your space helmets, kids. We’ve got exactly 50 years until 2062, when the world will morph into an animated scenescape of space-age aesthetics and conveniences. 100 years will have passed since the debut of the animated show, The Jetson’s—Hanna Barbera’s futuristic yin to The Flintstone’s yang—and life as we know it will be […]

With summer coming to an end soon and school starting back up, now is the time to squeeze in that last minute vacation or road trip and head on out to explore this big orb we call Earth.  Or, you can pretend you are in a tropical place and have the talent to surf alongside […]

Here at Hark we don’t just have movie, TV & video game sound clips.  We also have user uploaded collections (which you can do for free as well) that are full of sound effects and all-around awesomeness.  I’m going to take a little time to introduce you to some of the more noteworthy collections here […]
