This is the place where you can confab about all the other stuff besides videogames.

I ended up writing 3500 words on the level design for Thief II's campaign... it really is some of the best level design and structure I've played.

Over on my podcast, Previously on X-Men, we got to interview David Hayter about his time working on the first two X-Men movies!

Quarantine is getting to me. Here's a dumb Jurassic Park video I made Sunday.

Trent Torello is a movie person who was involved in the making of Jurassic Park... in some way!

Did I mention quarantine is getting to me? I made this video about pogs. It's episode #1. There will be more.

Pogs!

Wrote up the final mission of Dishonored's DLC The Knife of Dunwall, and replayed the pack so I could see how things played out for Billie Lurke in low chaos. Looking forward to the Brigmore Witches from next week.

Got some Hitman vibes from the first mission of Dishonored: The Brigmore Witches.

The series has adopted a social stealth approach at other times like in Lady Boyle's Last Party and Billie Lurk's Semblance power, but this was still a very welcome and cool surprise when going back to try these old DLC packs.

I recently finished a short mix of tunes unified by a 'rainy day' theme. some electronic, a lil' beat-centric Jazz, indie rock... even some game music is represented. I tried to cast a wide net stylistically. give it a listen when you're in a mellow mood (or would like to get into one).

cool - thanx for checking it out.
that track is 'Daisuke' by El Huervo, one of those music/art/design do-it-alls who just make you green with envy.

this was a great interview with some really insightful questions. makes me wanna go back and revisit those films, as I haven't seen them in years.

Those first two are still great (and a bunch after).

I've uploaded a few mixes lately if anyone is game.

Techsmith - Kinda eclectic. Some videogame music in there... Royksopp, LCD Soundsystem, Kate Bush (yep), KLF, allsorts. Plenty of layers. https://www.mixcloud.com/hazeredmist/dj ... genre-mix/

Fearful Symmetry - Deep drum & bass. Uploaded this one today. https://www.mixcloud.com/hazeredmist/dj ... 20-db-mix/

New Beginnings - Classic LTJ Bukem-style set, atmospheric drum & bass. https://www.mixcloud.com/hazeredmist/dj ... heric-set/

Oh, I listened to the first two of these today and they were wonderful.

The first one may be more accessible as its lots of great classic tunes from all genres.

Get on these people, very good and a much needed break from the usual Spotify wok playlist.

That's every mission in Dishonored and its expansion packs written up and reviewed in one place. Will start Dishonored 2 soon.

This June will mark the third year that I spend the month writing thoughts on video game music. I'm going through a challenge shared by various social media users, notably the Twitter account of OverClocked ReMix, so those of you looking for "Sound of Play except hosted by someone whose opinions you don't care about", I've got you covered.

The preface and write-up for the first day, as well as the entirety of the past two years, are available at https://thirtysongsofjune.wordpress.com/.
