Sometimes you just need a little inspiration to get past a block. A little music to get your juices flowing and help you when painting a setting, birthing NPCs or slapping together game pitches. If, like me, you grew up in the era of ninjas, commandos and training montages may I introduce to you the two greatest internet mix-tapes in existence:
Derek ‘DJA’ Allen and Dirty South Joe have painstakenly pieced together a veritable whack of tracks from numerous 80s Action Films. Pulling tracks from everything from Bloodsport and Rocky to Over the Top and Transformers the Movie, the Blood Bros manage to craft an aural ur-film soundtrack that can only make you feel like Chuck Norris on a motorcycle.
Seriously, check it out and the words will start flowing faster than Jean Claude Van Damme’s furious feet.
