Today’s Daily Prompt asks for the last photo you took, and the story behind it. Well, it’s the middle of January, and most of the trees around here are bare. However, there are some out back that still haven’t given in to the ravages of time. I looked out the window and was struck at how beautiful and colorful the fallen leaves were. It also reminded me of a certain song…
With Christmas just around the corner, I wanted to find a video game song to fit the season. Last year, I went with the iconic “Phendrana Drifts” from Metroid Prime. Many games have snow-themed levels, but finding one with a good song is a little trickier. The Flanoir theme fromTales of Symphonia was a close choice this time, but I decided to go with Donkey Kong Country again. There are actually two winter themes; the “Northern Hemispheres” track is much better known and more atmospheric, but the “Ice Cave Chant” is far more upbeat. The brief melody in the middle only hints at the underlying danger and difficulty of its stage.
If you want more Donkey Kong Country, you can find the full OST here.
Hey, folks. Happy Thanksgiving! Things are going to be a little quieter on the blog this week, because I’m heading out to Hawaii in just a bit. If you recall, I went to Maui back in May. This time, I’ll be headed to the Big Island itself. I expect to have lots of adventures, and to take tons of awesome photos! If you want to stay in touch, my Twitter will still be working. Have great, safe holiday. Take care of yourselves and those you care about. I’ll be back soon!
