Definitely worth a share. Makes a strong case for "videogames as art".

Two and a half hours of magic. To intermix the orchestra and thrash metal is a sin, but sin never felt so good.

Ya know, I've never had a desire to bang my head on the wall.

Any deeper than this and I start screaming:

How's this one, Brant? Probably still too heavy. Just keep the volume low.

We got you now Brant!!

Because of the DC-3 I wondered where this was filmed. Then the skydiving. I figure this was filmed around Lake Elsinore, CA for my brother skydived there in the late 1960s when he was a Marine and it's a skydiving center. Because of population density, you'd not find such a place in arid, eastern CA. Because of how clean and empty the DC-3 is, I figure they actually use it for mass jumping. You might get 40 skydivers in there and, for all I know, a few more. I have a framed pic. my bro. gave to our Mom of ten skydivers holding hands in a circle, many signed it, likely from 1967. When I got back from Vietnam, I stopped to see him at Camp Pendleton and we went over to where he skydived. He simply stuffed his chute into its bag without folding it. I think it was kind of a group macho thing. Military chutes--I had 13 jumps--were carefully folded. Then two or three years later he suffered a double malfunction in Eastern Europe and finally got his reserve open just in time. He sold his equipment and never jumped again.

edit: could be in Australia; double edit: nope; the single-engine plane they jumped out of has an "N" number which means USA

Reminds me of the average thread on Objectivist Living.

Jules,

That song keeps popping up on my car's radio. I like it more than I thought I would.

Here's a hidden gem which evaded my grasp for many years. Better late than never.

Spider One is nearing his 50s and he can still scream like a monster.

I don't know what constitutes "anti-life", but let's see...

Dolphin - Silver, with a video by Alexander Tikhomirov. I don't normally like rap, but this is awesome. Be advised that this is not safe for work, especially not his other videos.

Speaking of rap, this is another exception:

Now, let's cut the rap and go for some experimental blues. Who can say bourbon and cigarettes are anti-Life after hearing Tom Waits? ;)

And regarding unique voices, Leonard Cohen certainly stands apart from the rest

One of my newfound favorites in this genre is Ben Howard (this is an excellent recording but you'll have to turn the volume up quite a bit):

I'll get back with some heavier stuff later, and maybe some electronic music...

Sheesh, I don't think I've yet posted a single Megadeth song. Shame, shame. How about a classic or two?

Dean Jones just passed away. I know he did movies but this recording is what I associate the name with.

I'm putting it in this thread to earn irony points.
