You're out on your way home on a drizzly autumn evening. The last embers of the day glow and then fizzle out quickly.

Somehow, that turn that you always take every day in that little copse between the highway and your house doesn't lead you home tonight. Instead the trees stretch endlessly in every direction. A billowing fog starts creeping along the forest floor and your spine starts tingling. You try and dodge the shadows that now seem threateningly solid. You stumble further and further as the sounds around you are less and less those of a wet forest at night and more and more that of another realm entirely. You burst into a clearing and find yourself confronted with a hole in reality, a portal to the Otherworld. You are helplessly frozen in place as a hundred pairs of terrifying eyes in indescribable alien faces turn towards you. In your last clear-minded moments, you oscillate between despair and incomprehension. Surely this is it. Whatever this is, you're not coming back from it.

But the thing about horror is, it needs someone to tell the tale. And that someone will be you.

You wake up in your bed at home. You faintly hear the sounds of plates being cleared away in the kitchen. Through your window you look at a drizzly morning. You made it. You crossed the threshold of fall and will live to see another winter.

A song for bad days (or good days to get pumped up)

Background on Bloodywood
Bloodywood is an Indian metal band. The band started out as a combo of Karan Katiyar and Jayant Bhadula making metal covers of pop songs.
They found their current style when they released the song Ari Ari with which they added the rapper Raoul Kerr to the band members. Their style is a mix of traditional metal, Inidan instruments, English rap and Hindi screaming.

Other songs from Bloodywood

Today we recommend giving that old blues a listen again because it's probably been a while. From the Bastion soundtrack.

An exquisite song. Stuck with me much longer than the game itself - even though I quite liked Bastion...unfortunately Supergiants subsequent games did not resonate with me in the same way...but the music stayed great, thanks to Darren Korb.

Last weekend there was a huge 48 hour stream of original songs by Japanese VTuber Musicians. A VTuber is a term for streamers that use face rigged animated 2D & 3D avatars instead of face-cams. Many VTubers play games, karaoke, have chat streams etc but there is a large number who exclusively or predominantly use the format for music and performances. Most of the artists were Japanese but there were some english language tracks too and not all the artists are VTubers. There's a lot of small indie artists and bands too.

AZKi is one of the bigger Music-Focused Virtual performers and she hosted the stream to give a spotlight to other virtual musicians outside of her parent company. There were ~750 tracks from ~250 artists as each could submit up to 5 songs for consideration. It was great tbh. The chat had good vibes, the artists were taking turns to moderate chat, post links to the currently playing artist and discover new music themselves. I picked up about 30 artists and channels to keep an eye on. The music covered a host of genres not just JPop/Anime Rock type tracks ( There are a lot of those too tho ). The artists ranged from people with <50 subs to popular channels with tens/hundreds of thousands of subs. The last segment seemed to be videos of live performances rather than studio productions and It was cool to see a lot of indie virtual musicians use VR Chat to host live events.

Here's the HUGE playlist with 678 tracks and still being updated today. It also includes links to google spreadsheets and other playlists of the event.

Have a listen, you may even find a bunch of new artists to enjoy.

Sorry for being off topic, but could anybody recommend me not terrible blue tooth "in ear" headphones for an android phone.
~200€ max and something that has a chance to not constantly fall out?

ISee Can't recommend any but as Virtual Ruminant said have a look at neckband style, or ear band style - the ones that curl round your ear like an @ symbol. Try looking at some exercise/gym/running sites as i reckon "Do they fall out?" is a big question for those peeps :)

Three variations on a song with a video game connection:

"Ah! Belinda, I am prest with torment!" by Henry Purcell, from the opera "Dido and Aeneas" (which contains the line "Peace and I Are Strangers Grown").


Alternate Links



"Peace and I Are Strangers Grown" by Calefax & Eric Vloeimans, from the album "Dido & Aeneazz", a recomposition of the Purcell opera mentioned above.


Alternate Links



"Peace and I Are Strangers Grown" by Austin Wintory, from the Assassin's Creed Syndicate soundtrack. It uses the lyrics from the Purcell opera, but accompanied by new original music written by Wintory.
