“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.

$1,000/dose. LC varies.

Every action has an equal and opposite reaction. Case in point: when it became clear that government and corporate entities had access to technology that could track you via your DNA — or, worse, create diseases specifically keyed to it — there soon came effective countermeasures. Which then spawned counter- countermeasures, and so forth; but, honestly, anything that keeps grey- or black-market genetic engineers busy chasing their own tails is probably going to be worth it, from society’s point of view.
