    1:07 - Anyone else here think that the background noise here kind of sounds like the spin attack charge up sound from 'A Link to the Past'?

      Seems like I've mistaken. If you talk about the one around 1:07, then it's saw waves going slightly up in pitch, maybe with a bit of white noise.
      Since you talked about the "main one" though, to me it was the synthey/piano-like one.

      It's about Schindler's List. In the movie, there's a little girl with a red coat who shows up a few times in the movie. Her coat is in color, which makes it stand out from the rest of the movie. "Look, I found her. Red coat." by the end of the movie, she is killed. we see her (wearing her coat) being carted away with a bunch of other dead bodies. "Damn."

    Designed to justify the parasite English-inbred royal family, Prince Harry's favorite artist, after a hard days night killing Taliban/Pakistan/Georges/Irish mofos. He can go home to many of his haunted royal estates and have a heart to heart with his MOFO the queen, and ask her : Where do I belong in the world? She says: on the throne.
    We all know that monarchy represents inbred evil nepotism. They reserve the right to slavery, they reserve the right to do what they like in the name of lucifer.
