    The Naked and Famous, "The Sun". It's a good song.

    After this, the world had been pretty well ruined, and so all the gods convened at the site of Teotihuacan to decide what they would do. First, the gods would have to decide who would next become the Sun, but in order to do so, whichever god was chosen would need to sacrifice himself by throwing himself into a great bonfire which the gods had made for this purpose. Two gods volunteered themselves for this honor: Tecuciztecatl, the Lord of the Conch shell, a very rich god, and Nanahuatzin, the Pimply One, a very ill and poor god.

    For four days the two gods prepared themselves for the sacrifice, and for each thing that needed to be done, Tecuciztecatl always had the richest and finest implements, and Nanahuatzin the poorest. For example, Tecuciztecatl burned the finest white copal as his incense, while Nanahuatzin could afford no such thing, and so used the scabs of his own body to burn as incense. At the end of the fourth day, the two gods stood before the bonfire and Tecuciztecatl, as the first volunteer and more prestigious god, was given the honor of trying first. He rushed forward to throw himself into the fire, but just as he was to leap, he stopped in his tracks, too frightened to jump. Four times he rushed at the fire, and each time he was too frightened to throw himself in.

    And so, the other gods called Nanahuatzin forward. The poor god rushed at the fire, and instantly threw himself in. He rose as the sun in the east, and was so brilliant that the other gods called him Tonatiuh (He Who Goes Forth Shining). Tecuciztecatl was so ashamed of himself for his cowardice that, upon seeing the new sun rise he threw himself into the bonfire. The gods were dismayed as he rose in the sky as a second sun. And so, they threw a rabbit in his face to bruise it and dim Tecuciztecatl's light, turning him into the moon.

    I have a picture book based on the myth of the Seven Suns! It was a favourite of mine when I was little.

    In the Kindle The Fire ending, the player character is Nanahuatzin and Solaire is Tecuciztecatl. In the Dark ending, the player character is Tecuciztecatl and Solaire is Nanahuatzin

    Oh good, it might just be the iPad.

    Also, did not realise the video was NSFW. Will put a disclaimer.

    Oh hey, Gorky's!
  • Barafundle is one of my favourite albums.
  • “I'm surprised. Those clothes… but, aren't you…?”
    I need more GZM in my life in general.
  • Well, they're broken up now, so it should be relatively easy to get caught up.
  • “I'm surprised. Those clothes… but, aren't you…?”
    That is actually disappointing.
  • Yeah, it is.

    I've looked, and Euros Childs has released like a dozen solo albums since then. Of course, they're doomed to even deeper obscurity than Gorky's stuff was, which is pretty sad.
  • “I'm surprised. Those clothes… but, aren't you…?”
    Yeah. But still, someone is releasing music.
