Hitchhikers, retro tunes, etc

Not Acorn related, but quite definitely tied to "Auntie" herself:

Should certainly appeal to any text adventure and/or Adams fans :wink:

My love for 80s synth soundtracks has resulted in me finding a rich vein of retro artists via youtube. Fine purveyors such as Lazerhawk, Peturbator & Pilotpriest seem to have almost entirely replaced my regular choices!

One of the finest examples would have to be Protector101's "Vision" which, aside from being an outstanding tune, also has the Emilio Estevez segment from the film "Nightmares" as its theme/backdrop. If you don't know this (portmanteau) flick, think "Tron gone wrong" :wink:

(The link heads to that tune but also hits a playlist featuring a huge variety of similar material <3)

Whether you dig that Vision track or not? You really must see this trailer he scored for "Paperboy 3"!

And being as I mentioned Tron? This fan-made "trailer" is actually a couple of years old but I only just discovered it recently. It's... it's something that simply needs to be seen if you're a fan of the original or the sequel! =D>
