I've got it. Good stuff. I like the cheap irony of the title 'I wrote this song for the Girl Paris Hilton' ...good song too

I've been listening lots to "Ithyphallic", the new album from the absurd yet genuinely great ancient-Egyptian themed death metal band Nile. It's really good, tho I'd recommend their previous album "Annihilation of the Wicked" as maybe a better starting point for new listeners? :)

My favorite track: "Lashed to the Slave Stick" :D - http://shop.relapse.com/dbmedia/audio/07%20Lashed3.mp3

I listen to all kinds of stuff, lately i've been doing some work on my computer, and have had youtube playing in the background all the time.

The theremin is one of the earliest fully electronic musical instruments. It was invented by Russian inventor Léon Theremin in 1919. While the theremin was not widely used in classical music performances, the instrument found great success as the 'eerie' background sound in countless motion pictures, notably, Spellbound, The Red House, The Lost Weekend, The Spiral Staircase, The Day the Earth Stood Still, The Thing (From Another World), The Ten Commandments (the 1956 DeMille film), Ed Wood, and Mars Attacks!

Here are some clips:

As for music with a cinematic feel, I pretty much love everything Thomas Dybdahl has done. Check out:

Wow the theremin is just fantastic! Thank you. To tell you the truth I had to watch about 4 or 5 different utube to believe this is not a joke. This is really crazy! :)
