This is the song that launched a thousand fanfics, but there's good reason for that: it's one heck of a moody song. My family is healthy and hale, and even I would sit on my porch, listening to this song, and stoically sipping harsh whiskey while letting a single, iconic tear slide own my face. Tha...

Let's bust out an oldie but goldie. While Here Without You has been around for a long, long time, it still gets cited as one of the best machinima of all time. Why? Well, let's talk about that.

This machinima is almost three years old, yet it still holds up today. Here Without You, by Dimoroc, doesn't have special effects, a flashy intro, or even any dialogue.
