HERE'S SOME STUFF MIDWEEK!!! also africa by toto

The 10 Most Interesting <i>Magic</i> Cards from the <i>Dominaria</i> Set
My new song, inspired by the Dominaria set for Magic The Gathering!

This one took a while because I got REALLY ambitious with it, and haven't been playing Magic as much as I have, but I'm please with the end result.

The set was all about Legendary creatures, and with so many in the set, I had to incorporate legends into the theme. Also, the set is a return to the previous "center" of the Magic Multiverse, Dominaria, so legendary planeswalkers like Teferi, Karn and Jaya Ballard make a comeback. But, it's mostly to set up the current generation of Planeswalkers (Gideon, Jace, Liliana, et al) and their story going froward.

Also, this song is about David Bowie.


OK, so TheHashtagonist on Twitter, a writer and podcaster, made a parody version of Mambo No. 5 about E3, and I became REALLY TEMPTED. So I got home, got a free karaoke track, and got to work. All I really had to do was change some words around to fit better, and BOOM, you get this mess!

JAM OF THE WEEK: "Dancing In The Dark" by Bruce Springsteen

OK, So I know this isn't regarded as the BEST Springsteen song, but I have been thinking about it a lot lately, primary because it's so different. The pacing is upbeat, Bruce begs more than sings, and the song is about that unique kind of depression where you're stuck in a rut and have nothing to do.

However, that specific synth sound, is so calming. It's still the main hook, but the edges are rounded enough that it acts like a sedative. Like, the synths in Toto's "Africa"- Wait.


I mentioned Africa on the internet....
