Song of the Month: Of Monsters and Men, Destroyer

I don’t follow Of Monsters and Men as closely as I used to. Their more recent work generally doesn’t excite me as much as the earlier stuff.

Which is why it took me longer than it should have to pay attention to their new song, Destroyer. That’s a shame, because it bucks the trend of their newer stuff being less good. This song can easily stand with anything off My Head Is an Animal.

Song of the Month: Metric, Stadium Love

I had a pretty memorable session of my Curse of Strahd D&D campaign over the weekend.

We were fighting a powerful boss (no spoilers), and my sorlock had run out of spell slots. So our Moon druid decided to come in and polymorph her into a giant ape. She was not thrilled.

Then it turns out that the boss also had shape-changing abilities, and it transformed into a T-rex, because of course it needs to be Godzilla versus Kong at that point. And then the aforementioned druid got in on the fun by becoming a giant elk.

After all that, I just had to listen to Stadium Love.
