A Couple Of Strang(er) Things

A few weeks back, Sarah, myself, and the two oldest finally decided that it was time to watch Stranger Things. Now, having finished Season One, I'd say it's living up to the (otherworldly) hype. ...at least so far.

Just about the time we made the decision to give it a whirl, the distinctive and wonderfully mood-setting title theme (written by Kyle Dixon and Michael Stein) was featured on one of my all-time favorite podcasts: Hrishikesh Hirway's Song Exploder. As an added bonus, Hirway (its creator and host) gave a shout-out to another of my all-time favorite things: The Art of the Title and their post insightfully analyzing (as always) the visuals that accompany Stein and Dixon's theme.
