Hello everyone, hope your Friday the 13th was a good one. Today’s song is:
Secret of Mana: Ceremony – Thanatos Ruins
Sometimes the best and creepiest music comes from games that aren’t horror based. I guess it is because you’re not quite expecting it so the music leaves a greater impression on you. I have to say I myself wasn’t expecting the circus music from hell when I first entered this dungeon. It was also late and I was alone as I often was when I was a kid. What a horrible combination. I actually got so unsettled that I turned on my radio, just to listen to a radio drama. I needed to hear people, or really anything besides that song. Ultimately it worked and kept me relatively calm although I would be lying if I said this song didn’t worm it’s way into my head during the quiet of the night.
On a side note if you have not played secret of mana, you should go play secret of mana. It’s well worth a look and it still holds up well today, or you can wait for the remake that should be out early next year.

A Few things about me
- I'm almost finished with my degree in computer science and I plan on going into independent development and freelancing once I'm done.
- I can be very cynical, but I do try to be positive or curb my negativity. In spite of this I'm actually very jovial in person and I don't get mad often. I would dare say I'm quite happy, even when things seem bleak. I simply don't like industry Bullshit and I'm not one to stand for it, even if it's a game I like.
- I host a series annually called 31 Days where I post 1 horror related or themed video game song a day for the month of october. During this time I also provide keys for games (free of course) to any reader observant enough to find them.
- I've been a member of destructoid since 2010, and a lurker long before then. As such I've seen many people both come and go. Such is the natural order of things.
- I enjoy Art and draw in my spare time
- I also enjoy theatre and films. I especially like Horror movies (both good and bad ones).
- I go camping once or twice a year. I would go out more but my allergies tend to get in the way.
- I don't drink, which may be a surprise to some. I might make a joke or two about it but I stay away from alcohol for my own personal reasons, though you can feel free to drink a pint on my behalf any time you'd like.

I also got a musical piece made for me by the incredible Alphadeus. A little history behind this:
My musical piece came as part of the Songs for Gamers album DLC pack 02. Alphadeus has been making songs for the members of the destructoid community for years already. This past year he opened submissions and I applied. For my meagre efforts I received this lovely piece:
