Good day inmates!

And how are we all finding the week so far? Nobody has melted yet I hope. It’s certainly been muggy enough. It actually feels slightly cooler at time of writing, but I can still feel my palms being a little bit clammy. Isn’t that just the epitome of attractiveness eh? Anyways, it’s been an alright week here so far. The local “world renowned” festival known as Cowes Week is in full swing right now so the town is remarkably busy at the moment. For those who don’t know, Cowes Week is a yachting or sailing event that is one of the main things this particular town is known for. Perks of being a sailors port I guess? In practice, it means lots of drunk people, lots of traffic and above average levels of noise. It can be a lot of fun though.

Speaking of fun, did anybody get todays musical theme clue? It was less a clue and more of a obvious indicator really. It was really pretty obvious what it was saying. You’d only see if you follow my social media pages though. I’m sure you adorable little inmates do that though right? I’m winking, if anybody couldn’t guess.

So, todays musical theme. You see, I was between nightmares last night and a random thought came to me: I’d never tried maple syrup. One thing led to another and I found myself listening to a Canadian music artists playlist on Youtube. So, as that extremely random analogy may reveal, todays musical theme is the great nation of Canada. One of the more well-known and larger members of the Commonwealth, I tend to refer to Canada as the really polite neighbour of the USA. That’s not saying anything about Americans, but I just feel Canadians have that stereotype about them eh? It’s yet another country on my ever-increasing list of places I’d love to visit. Toronto in particular has always intrigued me. Until that playlist last night I hadn’t realised just how many ground-breaking artists are actually Canadian. Quite a few of them I mistook for American or even British artists. I doublechecked those on todays list though I promise. Want to see what I came up with? By the way, no I’m not including Nickelback. Just no.

That aside, join me as we delve into the musical minds of Canadian artists… the world over?

The Birthday Massacre – Looking Glass

Leonard Cohen – Hallelujah

Billy Talent – Rusted From The Rain

Theory of a Deadman – Not Meant To Be

Alanis Morissette – Head Over Feet

And there we have it my friends! I appear to have begun growing moose horns after listening to those a few times. Might be hard to put the top hat on but I’ll work it out. Did you enjoy todays musical choices? Bit of a mix today eh? I hope you check all of these artists out, especially if you aren’t familiar. I would recommend them all!

Now, time for my usual scheduled shilling! The asylum has a page over on Facebook where I post random stuff and clues for my poems ahead of time. I also have a Instagram account and a page over on Twitter as well! Please consider checking them out at some point. Also, if you really enjoy what I do here at the asylum, please consider supporting me over on the Ko-Fi page as well! Thanks for everything!

Until next week, have a very crazy day inmates!
