Video: How Terry Pratchett’s Going Postal Champions The Public Postal Service

This is a video adaptation of my How Terry Pratchett’s ‘Going Postal’ Champions The Public Postal Service article.


“Going Postal is possibly almost prophetic, you know. It’s about buying businesses, tearing them down. And I think we should remember where we’ve been and how we’ve got here. Because if you don’t know where you’ve been and how you got here, you don’t know where you’re going.”

Top 5 Songs from ‘MoS: Level 6’

Back in February, I shared my favorite song from each ‘Miracle of Sound’ album.

This proved to be very difficult, as there are so many great songs there!

So I have decided to make a Top 10 or Top 5 list for each album, depending on how big the album is to begin with.

 

5. Don’t Say A Word

I have yet to play any games in the Metal Gear Solid series, so this song does not have any familiarity to something I like to help it ingratiate itself to me, like a lot of other songs by this artist.

I simply enjoy the song, nothing more to say than that.

 

4. Lady Of Worlds

In this song about The Witcher 3’s main female character Ciri, Gavin gives away most of the singing-duties to Ailin Kennedy.

As with all his other Witcher songs, this one is also great.

I look forward to CD PROJEKT RED!’s next game ‘Cyberpunk 2077’, if only to hear the songs it will inspire Gavin Dunne to make.

 

3. Road Rage

I love the movie this song was based on, and I think it is a modern action-classic.

The song fits the movie’s focus on the metal of cars and bullets perfectly, while also touching on the heart of the film, motherhood.

Guns and gas and gods!

 

2. London Town

While I have played a lot of games in the Assassin’s Creed series, I have not played Syndicate, the game this song was based on.

One of the reasons that I really like this particular song is that I used to be a huge anglophile during my teens, probably helped on by my love for Doctor Who and Harry Potter.

And while I am not quite as crazy about Britain as I was back then, I still love it.

Ant-Men and The Wasps

Back in April, I stated that I had written something about each Marvel movie that had been released since I started this blog, and that I would try to continue doing so.

But while I enjoyed their most recent film ‘Ant-Man and The Wasp’, I could not find much to say about it.

While the film had a lot of very fun action-sequences that utilizes the heroes size-changing abilities in incredibly creative ways, I liked the heist-movie parts of the first Ant-Man film much more than the story of the second film.

 

And since that is pretty much all I can think of to say about the movie, I figured I would write a bit about ants and wasps.

Yeah.

 

Ants

When I was (let’s say) six years old, I was out playing with some friends.

It was me, a neighbor-girl the same age as me, her older brother and one of his friends.

 

The older boys had found an upturned log and a large rock With a huge anthill in-between them, and they were jumping between the log and the rock.

Possibly in an attempt to impress the girl, or maybe just the older boys, I decided to join in.

One, or maybe more, tried to tell me that it was too far for me to jump, but I proudly insisted.

A second later

I was up to my neck in biting ants

David Fincher – The Master of Thrillers

If you need some more Easter Crime suggestions here at the end of Easter, look no further than David Fincher!

From Seven (or Se7en), to Zodiac, to Gone Girl, to Mind Hunter, his film are a great fit for the Scandinavian tradition of Easter crime-fiction.

 

If my recommendation isn’t enough to sway you, maybe the video above, by Every Frame A Painting, will inspire you to look up some of his stuff.

But if it just made you want to watch more video essays, here’s a list of recommendations for that. Continue Reading →
