(ha, realized on publish I've used this exact title before, for a very different set)
I don't even mind "Ragnar the Red" when Malukah sings it. I've routinely mass-murdered many of the out-of-tune bards and then all the patrons in taverns (in Skyrim; not yet in real life but don't press me!). One thing I hate in ESO is you can't kill bad bards. You can leave a tavern filled with corpses and necromantic minions, and the bard'll keep singing.
Excellent suggestions from Apple Music. I sometimes wonder if there's anyone still there doing human-curated music, which was the whole selling point of Beats Music, and then run across something like this.
So the playlist:
So I was thinking about Lester Bangs, who basically taught me how to write with his reviews (which explains a lot, you know? I had higher ambitions but some rambling reviews with moments of clarity and profanity are what I can manage), then remembered Bruce Sterling wrote an alt-history biography "Dori Bangs" about him and Dori Seda hooking up, reread it. Fucking fantastic and a little heartbreaking, highly recommend it.
