Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

Music for English majors?

    I guess for volume 2 I'll recommend Sufjan Stevens - The Predatory Wasp Of The Palisades Is Out To Get Us!

    Iron Maiden - Rime of the Ancient Mariner

    Metallica - The Thing That Should Not Be (Lovecraftian)

    Anthrax - Among the Living, Skeletons in the Closet, I Am The Law

    Crash Test Dummies - Afternoons and Coffee Spoons (Really, the whole God Shuffled His Feet album is for English majors).

    Damn you, I was going to recommend Afternoons and Coffee Spoons.

    Cake maybe? I find their lyrics pretty clever.

    Edit: OH! Aesop Rock is a must, especially 11:35. Those lyrics blow my mind. Anything by De La Soul is brilliant in the lyrical department too. The Roots too.
