Hello there inmates!

I hope you’re all having a sublime day and an even nicer week! I’m doing quite well, aside from some pretty nasty sunburns. You may have seen a snippet of those burns in my poem ‘Scorcher’. Yes, it was rather painful though it is beginning to subside now. I was a bit ham-handed with the sun lotion and missed far too much, as well as forgetting to reapply it as the day went on. It’s been an exceedingly hot one here in the UK, particularly here in the south. It’s not really been concentration weather, but I have persevered to bring you lovely people my usual array of work. I hope that it has been up to a respectable standard this week.

So, its the time for the Harlequins writing music isn’t it? Well, I’ve got another good one for you lot this week. I shared the theme on my social media earlier on today. Did anybody guess it? I used a rather famous painting as the clue today.

Well the theme for todays music is the emotion of fear. Oh yes, fear. Unease, terror, anxiety. It can be fear manifesting in a multitude of ways that artists use as an ingredient in their song-writing. It could be tension of a particular kind of object or thing. Or perhaps it’s anxiety at socialising or just generally being around people. Maybe fear of the dark is an inspiration. There could simply be an arrangement in a song that instils fear in the listener, rather than representing the fear felt by the creator. It’s one of the most primal and powerful forces in the human (and animal) brain, so it stands to reason it can be not only a powerful motivator, but also a powerful inspirer. So, let’s see what I came up with this week eh? Could I scare the socks of your feet? Will I be able to raise your heartrate and make your hands clammy? I don’t know, but I’m going to show you some awesome music anyway.

So, join me as we delve into the musical minds of terrifying artists the world over!

Iron Maiden – Fear Of The Dark

God Module – Corpses (A Zombie Love Song)

Blue October – Fear

Blackbear – Anxiety

Jack Off Jill – Fear Of Dying

And there we have it folks! How about that? Did these songs scream fear to you? Did they even scare you with their lyrics? Well, it was worth a try I suppose. I would suggest checking out all of these artists regardless, they’re all deserving of love. Do it for me eh?

So, let’s get some scary social media spiel out! The asylum has a page over on Facebook, an account on Instagram and an account over on Twitter. Follow me over there for random stuff and clues for my poems a few hours ahead of time! Also, if you enjoy what I do here at the asylum, please consider supporting me over on the Ko-Fi page! Your support is always appreciated! Thank you!

Until next week, have a very crazy day inmates!

Good day inmates!

I hope that you’re all surviving out there in this crazy world of ours. I hope that you’re all keeping your heads intact. We don’t need more poor souls falling off the wagon. The world has more than enough suffering. I’d like to congratulate Mr Biden for his inauguration and I pray that he will bring dignity and decency back to the United States. He has something of a hill to climb I fear. Still, I remain optimistic for my American friends.

On another positive note: FREEDOM! I’m no longer subject to a self-isolation. Everyone in the household is safe and well. I can see the shops and sky again! Within safety guidelines of course!

So, it’s time for another display of the Harlequins writing music! I’ll be sharing five artists that I enjoy listening to while writing and often inspire poems themselves. Not a single artist post this week. I’m hoping to knock it out of the park this week with some weird and wonderful music for us all to vibe to, as the younglings say!

So, here goes. Join me as we delve into the musical minds of enchanting artists the world over!

Elena Siegman – Beauty Of Annihilation

Blue October – Hate Me

Imagine Dragons – Demons


Apocalypse Orchestra- The Garden Of Earthly Delights

So, that’s all of our wondrous tunes today inmates!

I hope that at least one of these artists draws your imagination in. Maybe a tune inspires a new piece of art from you. I urge you all to check out each of them, they all deserve the attention. Check out their songs and if you happen to find a new addiction, go give them some love on their page eh?

I suppose it’s time for my social media spiel. The asylum has a prescence on Facebook, I have an Instagram account and a page over on Twitter. As always, if you enjoy what I do here at the asylum, please consider supporting me over at the Ko-fi page. Cheers for everything!

Until next week, have a very crazy day inmates!
