What We're Thankful For: Day 8

Christmas is a time of giving and receiving, and maybe celebrating some dude’s birth, but it’s also about looking back over the last year and recognising what we should be thankful for. Today, we are thankful for… SLAYER!

Yes, it probably seems strange for a film score website to espouse the greatness of the world's greatest thrash metal band, but while Slayer have indeed featured in movies (like Gremlins 2, or their badass cover of 'In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida' in Less Than Zero), really they just help me personally (Charlie) when I'm writing. m/
