Today, it’s Oscar Night. The 90th Academy Awards ceremony takes place in the honorable Dolby Theatre. Being a Cinenut ever since my dad took me to the local movie theatre for watching Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back when I was a young boy, this is a must watch for me.

I have seen most of the nominated movies and for the first time, I don’t really have clear favorites. Be it Dunkirk, The Shape Of Water, The Darkest Hour or Three Billboards… - they’re all exceptionally well made and the same is true for the other nominees. We’ll see how the Academy members decide…

Game of Thrones fans will instantly recognize this song. It is from the famous intro scene of the sixth season’s final episode The winds of Winter. The song’s name is Light of the Seven and its composer is Ramin Djawadi.

It’s popular among youtubers as material to cover and has been covered even by large orchestras. The song received much praise, even outside the Game Of Thrones continuum.

game of thrones season 7 is already over and to me it seems it just started last week, but in reality, it’s been 6 weeks ago. the shortest season so far brought a major events at an alarming rate and some of these events were unfortunately too predictable. this might, however, just be a side effect of the main plot approaching the final conclusion.

Some lesser known stuff from Deep Purple. Not exactly a song either, but more a recorded Jam Session that took place while they were recording the Perfect Strangers album. An instrumental track with mostly Mr. Blackmore showing off.
