M’kay. So, I finally finished that 15-page screenplay adaptation of “Macbeth.” Like… two minutes ago. So, not much time to write about anything else. My apologies. It’s not that Macbeth took long… but I did have a game night tonight. I believe we played Elder Sign, which is Arkham Horror but just with dice and an environment built by cards. Fun, even if we lost badly the first two times. Stupid elder gods… Still, as it wasn’t actually Arkham Horror, I’ve yet to lose Arkham Horror. So nyah.
…anyway. Lots of writing, napping, playing games… so, as a result, you get a dinky song post!
This one comes from Final Fantasy VI (or Final Fantasy III as it originally came out in America). It’s a rather long song, which makes sense since it’s the final boss’s theme. And you’re not supposed to beat the final boss very fast.
I mean, you can, but you’re not supposed to.
The version I’m linking is specifically the one done by The Black Mages, the group that video game music composer Nobuo Uematsu created basically to legitimately play all of his music in something other than 8-bit sound. It’s the song I’ve been using to gauge how long a drive takes. The original video game version lasts 17 minutes. This one only lasts about 12 minutes. Earlier today, when traffic was terrible, was the first time I’ve had to repeat the song. No other time have I ever gotten through the entire song before I got to where I needed to be.
Anyway, if you enjoy pipe organ, this song will appease you. If you like epic, dramatic guitar solos, this song will appease you about 8 and a half minutes in. Give it a listen if you have time.
