It appears that I am running a bit late for my Five on Friday post but - as is the story of my life lately - there's lots to do and seemingly little time to do it! Well, okay truth be told, today's excuse is that I'm switching over to Direct TV later on today and while waiting for the technician to come over to do the installation I figured I had best watch the four TV episodes I had recorded on my Comcast DVR before it got disconnected. Probably a lousy excuse but I didn't want to miss the two episodes of Burn Notice, one of The Closer, and other one of Flashpoint that I had saved! I really don't watch much TV but those three are my favorites when Doctor Who is no longer in season.
Anyhow, all excuses aside, this week I decided to grab some of my favorite movie music along with one song from a video game that I think is pretty cool, too. Amanda has introduced me to a lot of music used on video games that is really, really good so never discount them as an awesome source of music! For this week I grabbed the two pieces of music from Inception that I could find on Playlist.com - one by my favorite composer Hans Zimmer and the other by Zack Hemsey; there's a piece from Shutter Island by Max Richter; Mombasa Suite 6:41 is from Halo 2 (a game I will never ever play but which has great music); and from Watchmen a piece by Vitaliy Zavadskyy.
I hope you enjoy this week's choices and if you get a chance, please stop by Trav's Thoughts and check out the other participants in his Five on Friday meme. Heck, you might even want to join in one of these days!
