Don't mind me, just sowing this peppy alt-rock/rhyme Brit earbug that's been blowing up the Alternative radio stations lately...

That is still some time in the future.

(Which does not mean that I have not yet decided, and have not yet statted it up. No sir, not at all.)

(Well, okay, maybe a little.)

I wonder how long it will take for them to figure out that this is not being caused by the gods - that the gods are merely opportunistic parasites?....

Oh, and the part that I borrowed from Angel Heart - Ilsa (not Elsa - Ilsa, I have no idea how I managed to get that wrong, up above) does not realize that she is choosing sacrifices.

The first two that died were men that betrayed her in some fashion. But Odin wants blood, to share with Hel.

After the PCs finish this portion the next part deals with the night life of Berlin Between the Wars, Cabaret meets The Mephisto Waltz.

The Cabaret is rotten at the core, brittle delights masking a sour and sullen anger. (For what it is worth, Britain had much the same thing with the Bright Young Things - cocaine and Champs, anyone?)

But, in the end, that anger is inwardly turned, and will be overwhelmed by the outwardly turned anger as Germany rises again in arms, and first uses those weapons to strike at their own heart. (Cabaret is, at its heart, one damned grim musical.)

But the real darkness takes place closer to the Cabaret than you might think, in the great symphony.... Why should the old gods be the only parasites?

In time all four horsemen will ride, some are old gods wearing new guises, others... are what it says on the label. War will have several faces, including a bitter French veteran of the Franco-Prussian War, while Starvation is making a playground of Spain....

The Auld Grump, people forget that before there was Hitler, before there was Mussolini, there was Franco. After Hitler and Mussolini had long gone to dust, still, there was Franco....

The PCs will be looking for hidden horrors, but the real horrors and monsters will be the ones in full view.

Sometimes music is inflicted upon you.

When that happens the only thing to do is inflict it on others.... Tongue

Official 30 minute Tron Uprising score sampler

I've had the full score on repeat all day; clearly heavily derived from Daft Punk's work for Tron Legacy, I think it's actually the superior work.

I just encountered Limbotheque's Man (Girl, in this instance) of Constant Sorrow for the first time, on a video unboxing of GameZone Dark Elves, of all things.

There has got to be a way that I can use song that in a game

The Auld Grump - I was up at four in the morning, and have had too much caffeine to sleep....

Lamentation of the Marooned
By Ye Banished Privateers.

"It's been fourteen years since they put me on this island
No ship, no crew an' no bottle of rum!
Me boots have rotten, me mood turned sour
No ship, no crew an' no bottle of rum!

Now I tell ye me ol' salt I wish I was there
With me ship, me crew an' me bottle of rum!
There on the high sea, with the winds an' the waves
With me ship, me crew an' me bottle of rum!

Oh lord, if ye ever steer a ship here
A ship with a crew an' a bottle of rum!
I'll promise I'll never go rovin' no more
With me ship me crew an' me bottle of rum
I'll be meek as lamb an' calm as a saint
Jus me an' me ship an' me bottle of rum
An' i'll never end up in a dance with Jack Keer
With no ship, no crew an' no bottle of rum

but lord let me not meet that treacherous first mate
With me ship me crew an me bottle of rum
'Couse then with me cutlass I'll chop of his limbs
I'll smash in his face with me bottle of rum

I curse their bones for leaving me here
Deceitful crew, empty bottle of rum
They're plundrin' an' sailin' the main without me
On me ship, with me crew an' me bottle of rum!

I hope they'll reach ropes end there at sea
Crushed ship, drowned crew an' smashed bottle of rum!
An' be thrown in the Spaniards deep dungeon of woe
No ship, no crew an' no bottle of rum!

It's been fourteen years since they put me on this island
No ship, no crew an' no bottle of rum!
Me mood has rotten me hope is dim
No ship, no crew an' no bottle of rum!

Now I tell ye me ol' salt I wish I was there
With me ship, me crew an' me bottle of rum!
There on the high sea, with the winds an' the waves
Me ship, me crew an' me bottle of rum!"

Having just learned of the death of Pete Seeger I am listening to quite a few of his songs right about now.

Goodnight Irene
Which Side Are You On?
Cindy - with Buffy Sainte-Marie.
Joe Hill

I was lucky enough to be at a house party where Mr. Seeger and Tommy Makem were singing - Pete Seeger sang Across the Blue Mountains, which was a song that I don't think that he ever recorded. (A song based on a real incident - a bank president that quit his job, divorced his wife, and headed out west on a buckboard, with a new wife, half his age... and then had the effrontery to live a long and happy life.) 

The Auld Grump - I ran a Spycraft game with Which Side Are You On? as the theme song.

Gearing up for SteamCraft again in the near future. (Get it? Gearing up? Eh, eh? Tongue )
So far I have decided on some background music, of a more classical variety than my norm.
For a chase scene - Beethoven's Rage Over a Lost Penny.

And the bad guy's theme - Prokofiev's Dance of the Knights.

I have not yet decided whether to allow him to be redeemed, the second movement certainly starts with a hint that it may be possible.

On the other hand... I like the image of an irredeemable villain that yet has tears in his eyes. A villain that feels justified, perhaps?

Ever wondered what a classical piano cover of the insideous wubwub of dubstep would soundlike? Wonder no more (and it's pretty damn awesome):
Bangarang! -- the cover vs the original

(Yeah as dubstep goes Bangarang! isn't the most listenable track but I'm sure the heist narrative has a certain appeal to at least some of us)

That however was a detour while exploring the current stuck-in-my-head tune, Deadmau5's "Ghosts 'n' Stuff". The signature chord sequence is frustratingly addictive.

Here's an intriguing piano cover of the tune

An even more intriguing lounge / swing version that eschews the whole basic tune in order to emphasize the lyrics. It doesn't really work for me, but you have to give them props for doing something interesting instead of a straight cover version.

And Vader vs Palpantine to an instrumental version for Star Wars Kinnect which remains to my mind one of the single greatest tie in games ever conceived.
