It’s unfortunate that so many horror movies have become so full of clichés and recycled storylines. It’s fantastic when you find an original horror movie, but most are just the same thing over and over. What if these horror movies we’ve all become so familiar with took place solely on Facebook? It would probably turn out something like this

Skyrim Theme (Dragonborn) on Wine Glasses
The Skyrim development team employed Jeremy Soule to compose music for Skyrim “Dragonborn” after his work on Morrowind and Oblivion. “Dragonborn” (Skyrim theme song) was recorded with a choir of over thirty people, singing in the game world’s Dragon language. Creative director Todd Howard envisioned the theme for Skyrim as the Elder Scrolls theme sung by a choir of barbarians. This became a reality when the idea was passed by Soule, who recorded the 30-man choir and layered three separate recordings to create the effect of 90 voices. The language, Draconic, was created by Bethesda’s concept artist Adam Adamowicz, and he developed a 34-character runic alphabet for the game. The lexicon of Draconic was expanded as needed; as lead designer Bruce Nesmith explained, words were introduced to the lexicon every time the studio wanted to say something.
