The Saturday Night Special: Empire (Darksynth / Cyberpunk / Midtempo Mix)

For tonight, just on a goof, catch a flight to Seoul and hit some cyberpunk/dark synth clubs.

All dark music videos can be found on the Dark Music playlist on The Chamber’s YouTube channel.

If you are going to a darksynth/cyberpunk club, why not have a drink or two, something dazzling, mind-bending, and futuristic?

On your walk home, drop by a small bar for some soju or tea and quietly watch the rain and people.

Not familiar with soju? Hook up with the friends you just met in the bar and learn about it on this pub crawl through Seoul:

Once you’ve had enough partying, take a quiet walk through the rain to your hotel in Seoul.

The Saturday Night Special: Songs for Lonely Rainy Nights

All dark music videos can be found on the Dark Music playlist on The Chamber’s YouTube channel.

I love this haunting melody.

Here is a good place to be on a rainy, lonely night reading Hemingway or Camus.

If you are going to be alone on a rainy night, why not chase the green fairy?

The Saturday Night Special: Music for Rituals and Shamanic Journeys

All dark music videos can be found on the Dark Music playlist on The Chamber’s YouTube channel.

Let’s kick up the party a little and celebrate Walpurgisnacht (April 30- May 1) with Faun (from Germany).

I don’t know of any drink that shamans would have enjoyed, so I’ll go with the closest I can think of: Viking libations or drinks named for vikings or something viking-related (maybe).

I have no idea where these guys obtained a recipe for a screaming viking (they probably concocted it themselves), but here is a much simpler, alternative recipe that you can probably make easily out of stuff you have in your house tonight. I happen to have these ingredients at home tonight, so I will give it a shot.

Now take this opportunity to head out into forest to your special place and commune with nature.

Enjoy. Until next week…

The Saturday Night Special: Verdi’s Requiem – Dies Irae e Tuba Mirum

All dark music videos can be found on the Dark Music playlist on The Chamber’s YouTube channel.

If you’re going to listen to Verdi’s music, why not do it while enjoying some of his favorite beverage: wine.

Enjoy a glass while you learn about Verdi’s interesting life:

Now it’s time to party like Verdi:

Now, let’s kick it into high gear and bring it into the 21st century.

Arrivederci!

The Saturday Night Special: Playlist to Study like Nietzsche over the Abyss on a Tightrope between the Animal and The Uebermensch

For tonight’s foray, we are going out for a night on the town in Germany. The music is classical, but imagine yourself to be a German grad student studying classical music and literature in modern-day Berlin.

After your night of German cocktails, you can stop by here on the following morning to ease into your day.

While here, check out some of these world-renowned books by German authors that are available in The Chamber’s bookshop:
