There are surprisingly few official TV and film adaptations of Terry Pratchett’s Discworld series of novels. Especially considering how many books he wrote. And frankly, just how popular they all are.

A lot of people are unhappy with the finale of Game Of Thrones.
And while I think the ending was fine, it could definitely have been better.
Here’s a drawing of Anubis The Dog spray-painted and dressed up to look like Ghost The Direwolf.
Game Of Thrones has been my absolute favorite show for the last few years.
So I and John Barry Ballaran, the makers of the Anubis: Dog of Death indie comic, wanted to mark the ending of this wonderful show.
Let’s write some funny articles based on science fiction clickbait headlines! 😀
A few months ago, I wrote a post where I listed a few funny fantasy themed article titles I had made with a clickbait generator.
I first discovered “the 4th most popular folk comedy duo in New Zealand” through listening to their first studio album on repeat with a friend while we were having a long drive to a cabin trip in 2010.
Are you tired of the same old Christmas songs on the radio?
I’ve got you covered!
Chiron Beta Prime – Jonathan Coulton
This song is a
cry for help Christmas letter from a family that is being held against their will protected by evil robots giant metal Santa Claus’.
During the late 90s, when I was between six and nine years old, I was a giant Spider-Man fan!
I never read any of the comics, I was more into Donald Duck and Scrooge McDuck comics when I was little, but I have enjoyed his adventures through other media.
In Norway we have a tradition where each year the television channels air shows with a Christmas theme that has a new episode each day between December 1st and December 24th.
I recently rediscovered one of my favorite musicians, Gavin Dunne, aka Miracle Of Sound.
I usually spend my listening-time on podcasts, but when I am in the mood for music, I like stuff that has lyrics worth paying attention to.
That often means comedy or musicals (e.g. Hamilton), but Miracle Of Sound also fits in that category.
Gavin Dunne often takes a video game, movie or tv-show, and makes a song based on it. The lyrics always reflects the events and spirit present in the works he draws on, in a very interesting way.
I like all his music, but I love the songs based on something I am familiar with the most, as those hit me in a way that the ones based on works I don’t know could not.
I have here tried to find my favorite song out of each of his main albums (the ones named “Level #”), while also trying to keep my choices as diverse as his various music styles.
If you like this stuff, you can buy his albums here!
Level 1: Sovngarde Song
“Level 1” has the most tracks out of all of these albums, so this was a very hard choice to make. ‘Sovngarde Song’ presents the awesomeness that is Skyrim, the fifth Elder Scrolls game.
This is a more recent remaster, but it is still the same song, so I felt that would be ok.
Level 2: Take It Back!
This was a song he got to make as promotion for Mass Effect 3, back before that game came out.
Such a good war-anthem, pumping you up to reclaim Earth from The Reapers!
Level 3: Dream Of The Sky
Listening to this song again is what gave me the idea to write this whole thing.
The song has so many aspects, just like Bioshock Infinite itself!
Level 4: Forever Blue
Both a deep dive into the psychology of the main character of Breaking Bad, Walter White, AND a pun on the color of the meth he makes.
