I seem to have neglected to post a song of the week yesterday. Firstly, oops. Secondly, to make up for it, I’m posting an entire album today. If you’ve never heard of Two Steps from Hell, get thee to the link below posthaste, because these guys are the greatest writers of epic (yes, I used that word properly) orchestral music in recent times. They write music specifically for use in movie and video game trailers, and every track on their album, “Invincible”, is uniquely inspiring. I highly recommend Heart of Courage (a classic, used in the trailers for Mass Effect 2 and Voyage of the Dawn Treader), Master of Shadows (used in the 2012 trailer, but don’t hold that against it), and Super Strength (I have no idea what trailer it was used in, but it’s an amazing tune). There’s a link to the rest of the album right here for you to enjoy, so go ahead and get enjoying!

Fillies and gentlecolts, I present to you the Inception trailer – pony style.
I figured it was only a matter of time, and I was hoping that it would be A) not a long time and B) very well done. I was not disappointed. I could have just added this video to the Confound These Remixes post from a week or two ago, but I didn’t because A) most of you would probably never have gotten to see the magnificence if I’d done that and B) it’s 11:50 PM here and I still hadn’t done anything for PostADay. Two final notes: A) I think I’m getting addicted to this A/B format and B) here’s another Christopher Nolan trailer mashup that you deserve to see if you haven’t already:
Also, in other inevitable news, I finally caved in and gave those confounded ponies their own category. Just click “Those Confounded Ponies” in the sidebar over there to see my previous weekly Pony Posts… if you’re free, of course. There are actually a lot more of them than I was expecting, which is weird considering I wrote them all. Have I really been watching this show for two months? Well, you know what they say: time flies when you’re having fun and/or when your days pass in a blurred jumble as you try to keep up with your schoolwork. That’s one of my favorite adages.
