Also, the music used while GSV read the good ship's last thoughts was, "But in the end, it's still just cleaning a table" off the same album

Also also, if you find talk of historical torture titilating, I suggest the Dan Carlin's Hardcore History episode "Painfotainment," link here: https://www.dancarlin.com/product/hardcore-history-61-blitz-painfotainment/
