Cornell’s Chimes played the Game of Thrones theme song the other day. It was pretty epic, hearing the bells booming over campus. I captured almost all of it using my phone. What a great rendition!

Hopefully this’ll be one of those songs they start playing regularly :D

Yeah—I want to record it properly, from start to finish!

Toute la mémoire du monde is a fascinating look at the Bibliothèque nationale de France. What first seems like a benign documentary soon spirals into a heavily veiled critique of the institution that handles “all the memory of the world”. Coming just a decade after World War II, it’s impossible not to not pick up on Resnais’ fascist portrayal of the library bureaucracy as “gatekeepers”.

Watch the 20 minute documentary in 1080p HD on Youtube.
