“Mountains of Madness featuring John Williams” [GURPS 4e]

“Mountains of Madness featuring John Williams” Tenth Anniversary Soundtrack (2021)

 

Mountains of Madness (directed by Guillermo del Toro; starring George Clooney, Octavia Spencer, Gary Oldman, and Kristen Stewart) was one of the highest-grossing films of 2011 on Homeline. Del Toro even managed to score John Williams for the soundtrack, which (as usual) netted Williams an Academy Award nomination.  It’s widely considered to be one of Williams’ better work; the ‘Main Theme’ in particular somehow manages to be simultaneously peppy, pulpy, and deeply creepy, all at once. The tenth anniversary commemorative soundtrack is itself rather nice, with charmingly retro things like physical artwork — and an actual compact disc inside!  The whole thing has “collector’s item” stamped all over it. Well, not literally, because that would be crass.

Movie of the Week: The Thing.

Boneflower and Boneflour

 

Yes, they’re pronounced the same.  And yes, it’s supposed to be confusing (potentially lethally so).  Necromancers will have their little jokes, particularly when they promise to be entertaining to watch.

In the Mail: Widdershins: Curtain Call.

And it’s a nice, thick book, too.  Then again, this was the blowout comic event Kate Ashwin’s been building up to with Widdershins (19th century magical Europe webcomic; quite good) for some time now, so that’s to be expected.  Looking forward to reading this again.
