Links of the Day - New Year Edition

Never A Year Like '09 - The creative folks at JibJab have put together a very amusing music video that does a great job of summarizing the year 2009 with its many ups (election of Obama) and downs (economy).

Zelda Reorchestrated - Celebrate the New Year with a Zelda marathon of music and check out this site which created the Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time soundtrack. The goal was apparently to take the music from the game and make it sound have if played by an orchestra rather than an electronic creation. Click the link, about halfway down is streaming of 22 classic tracks.

70-Minute "Review" of The Phantom Menace - Click the link for a video that tears the Star Wars movie apart for its many story mistakes, casting mistakes, decisions and more. It is an amusing, strange but very entertaining trashing of a film that to me was written with a tin ear for merchandising rather than trying to tell a story.

Same Old Lang Syne - A classic New Year's themed song from Dan Fogelberg. Have a Happy and safe New Year.
