During the last few days (if not week) I ran into a bunch of interesting stuff which I didn’t link to yet. As per usual, here they are:
The other Open Culture had a nice post on The Story of The Pogues ‘Fairytale of New York’. I used to listen to The Pogues back in the days, and totally forgot about them. Suffice to say, the tune was not familiar to me, but I’m glad I did read the post. It’s a great tune and certainly an improvement over most Christmas tunes.
Talking about christmas music: Here’s a Spotify playlist with Heavy Metal versions of finnish traditional Christmas tunes.
Also fun: Sixteenth-Century Flemish Superheroes.
