Music review: ‘Every Country’s Sun’ by Mogwai

Post rock, as a genre, is hard to define. It is a mix of synthesizers and rock music, culminating in a sound that can be described as ‘atmospheric’ at best. It is even harder to suggest to someone to give it a try. The songs are often way over six minutes long and have generally very long intro’s. They have slow tempo’s, lack any real chorus and, more often than not, lack any vocals as well. At first glance, the songs are highly repetitive and monotone. They aren’t catchy. They seemingly lack character. But, when (after five minutes of build-up) the...

‘A Song of Ice and Fire’, better known as Game of Thrones  (GoT) has a very rich mythology. The world in which it is set is nearly as fleshed out as Lord of the Rings’ Middle Earth. However, unlike Lord of the Rings, George RR Martin’s series has not been finished yet. Therefore, a lot of the mythos has not received a definitive answer by the author. One of these open-ended discussions is the prophecy of Azor Ahai. In this post, I will disclose my theory on who Azor Ahai are (yes, are). First though, I will detail how I came to my theory....

Design: Dota World

Three weeks ago I had an idea for a design – a spherical Dota World. In an hour or so, I put this idea to paper. That was the easy part. What followed was three weeks of painstakingly coming to terms with the pen tool in Adobe Illustrator, which I, at the time, was still a novice at. I learned through practice, and I am quite happy with the result. I am hoping to get this approved by Valve to sell during TI7, for which I uploaded the product here. If you like this work, please vote! If it fails approval,...
