Wolfenstein 3D Remix – ‘BJ’s Lament’

I made a new remix! This time around I’ve taken to the title and menu themes of Wolfenstein 3D – a game that still gives me shivers every time the scary guy with the chain gun screams ‘Hawt Dawg!’. A small warning – the final theme is actually a Nazi anthem by Horst Wessel, and featured in the original game as the title music. My use here is in no way a glorification of the Nazi regime, but more of a celebration of BJ’s efforts to take it down. But I apologise in advance to anyone who is offended by...

What’s Your Story?

I’ve been lucky enough to be a part of so many projects over the years – whether it be writing specifically for something, or giving out permission to use my music.

Yes! Star Wars VII has REAL Puppet Characters Again!

J.J. Abrams released a short video this morning showing bits of the Star Wars set in Abu Dhabi, spruiking UNICEF and what-not. Bu J.J. is upstaged by the coolest puppeteered character I’ve seen in a while. I’m SOO glad to see this. I despise episodes I, II and III for their tragic overuse of CGI to create characters that had no gravity or depth – odd animations that felt out of place with the live action. Rewatching the original trilogy on May 4, I was reminded how much more real the characters feel when they are physically on the set,...
