(See my other Music posts) – Now that Game of Thrones is over I wanted to post some different music. This is “Prelude to War”, part of the Battlestar Galactica season 2 soundtrack. It was published to YouTube in May of 2009 by JediNg135.
Not quite easy listening, but an enjoyable instrumental.
(See my other Game of Thrones posts) – (*** Spoilers in the video above ***) I have watched all 8 seasons of Game of Thrones and I have enjoyed all 73 episodes in the series. I have also read the first five novels in the series. I look forward to reading the remaining two once they have both been published (George RR Martin is so glacialy slow that I won’t buy one until they are both published. It has, after all, been eight years since book five was published.)
I know some people have protested what happened in episodes 5 & 6 of Season 8, but I think the series was concluded well. I like the way the story ended. The only complaint I have with season 8 is that I think it could easily have been stretched into a full 10 or more episodes.
*** Spoilers ahead ***
That said, with the dragon’s whereabouts unknown, Jon Snow headed off into the icy north, Sansa Queen of Winterfell, Bran the Broken King of the 6 Kingdoms, Tyrion Hand of the King, and Arya heading off into the unknown west, there are ample opportuities for further stories of these surviving characters.
(See my other Game of Thrones and Music posts) – Keeping with my running theme as long as GoT Season 8 lasts, here is the extended version of the soundtrack ‘Dragonstone’ from Game of Thrones Season 7. The music is by Ramin Djawadi and is from the album Game Of Thrones: Season 7 (Music from the HBO® Series). This video was posted in May of 2019 by Eredus.
(See my other Disney, Music, and Star Wars posts) – My earlier Star Wars music post today in celebration of Star Wars Day dates back to the original Star Wars movie that premiered in 1977. This post for “Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge Symphonic Suite” relates to the next event in the Star Wars universe – Galaxy’s Edge which opens in Disneyland and Disney World later this year. This 5:01 video was uploaded to YouTube in May of 2019 by DisneyMusicVEVO.
Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge Symphonic Suite is available here:
(See my other Music and Star Wars posts) – this is an out of cycle music post for me. I usually make those on Tuesday afternoon. However, today is Star Wars Day so I decided to post a little extra.
This 5:51 video of the Star Wars Theme was posted to YouTube in July of 2012 by Coltsrock56.
(See my other Science Fiction and Short Film posts) – I came across the short (9:51) animated science fiction film “GALAXY OF GHOSTS: INTRODUCTION” a short time ago. This film was uploaded to YouTube in June of 2017 by MadArtistPublishing. The synopsis:
In the 22nd century, mankind started exploring deep space. Research spaceships searching for new planets and alien life. And they finally found something that could be the answer to all our questions, endless source of energy. Many people, corporations, bandits want to be the first to have it. But they don’t know what they really have found. So, the story begins.
I thought that this was a very well done animated film. I still don’t understand why people in this day and age still have their spacecraft ‘bank’ when they turn in space though. They should understand physics far better today than that.
(See my other Music and Game of Thrones posts) – I’m keeping with the Game of Thrones theme again this week. This 5:04 video of 2CHELLOS performing Game of Thrones music was uploaded to YouTube in March of 2017 by 2CELLOS. The 2CELLOS, Luka Sulic and Stjepan Hauser, perform a Game of Thrones Medley with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra at the Sydney Opera House. This is from their album “Score”.
(See my other WWII and Short Film posts) – I came across this short (18:01) films set in WWII a short time ago. The film was uploaded to YouTube in May of 2014 by James Cawley, the film’s director. The synopsis per IMDB:
REUE is the story of two American soldiers stranded in occupied territory. While trying to relocate their platoon, the soldiers come face to face with a German infantryman. The trio of young soldiers soon learns they are more connected with the will to survive than they could have ever imagined.
This seems to be a pretty well-made film.
If you are interested in the WWII era of history, you may find these two pages of mine of interest.
The “World War II Sources” page is a collection of more than 250 links to museums, memorials, websites, Facebook pages, Twitter feeds and other sources with information on the World War II era in history.
The “World War II Timeline” page shows events leading up to WWII, as well as during the war. Events are broken down into the Pacific and European Theaters by date.
(See my other Science Fiction and Short Films posts) – I came across the short (16:03) movie “KORTEX” a while back. This is a science fiction film set in a post-apocalyptic world. The synopsis per IMDB:
In a post-Apocalyptic world, a man finds a robot.
While this isn’t the best short film, it is pretty good. It received a rating of 5.7/10 on IMDB.
(See my other Music & Game of Thrones posts) – I came across this 10:36 video a short time ago and thought that it would be good to post this week, the second week of the Game of Thrones final season. This video of a performance of the “Light of Seven” was uploaded to YouTube in February 2017 by Silva Screen Records. It is very easy listening. The performance is by the City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra.
