The Return of Scott Murphy, and Baba Yetu (Civilization IV, by Peter Hollens)

How have I not posted this one already?

This is the main theme for a video game, Civ IV ... as is obvious from the title.  Another Peter Hollens song.  And, really, this guy is amazing. I'd ask how this guy is not considered a professional, but looking at his recording equipment, he looks like one to me.

Anyway, it's really music to write to -- and no, you can't sing along to it. :)

However, don't worry people, this will not be just a music post.  There is, of all things, a short story. Yes, a short story. It's been a while since I did one of those.  If you remember Scott Murphy from The Pius Trilogy, you might remember that he's just a spy.  He's, at most, an infiltrator.  He doesn't do fights. He doesn't punch people. He doesn't do shootouts. He doesn't believe in violence -- because he's a spy, if he has to fight, he's not doing his job.

In this case, a fight comes to him. And Scott, a pale, anemic fellow, who has to fight a legion of terrorists with absolutely no preparation or warning.

Have fun.

  1. What do you mean, I can't sing along? Of course I can! It's just my Swahilli is exceedingly rusty. :)


Please, by all means, leave a message below. I welcome any and all comments. However, language that could not make it to network television will result in your comment being deleted. I don';t like saying it, but prior events have shown me that I need to. Thanks.
