Hello there inmates!

How are you all doing this week? Nursing a hangover or getting over those food comas? I hope that you all had a great christmas day. I know I did! I ate far too much and drank a little more than is medically advised. Did you guys get everything you wanted? Did you spend time with your loved ones? I’m really happy to hear it! We’re coming up to the new year as well, so that’ll be fun I suppose. Not entirely over the moon about what the new year might bring of course, but who knows!

So, it’s time for that weekly mess of musical splendour. The Harlequins writing music! As I always ask about this time, did anybody see the clue to todays musical theme? I thought it was a pretty good one, if I do say so myself.

So todays musical theme is the noughties! Ahh yes, the first decade of this millennium. I was teenager during this decade, so I remember bits of it quite vividly. Not necessarily in a positive light, but that’s teenage life. Believe it or not, I wasn’t actually a big music fan at the time. I had favourites of course, but I was not known to listen to it extensively. There were some big bands during these years, I actually find it hard to pinpoint what was special musically about the noughties specifically. Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake I suppose. Oh yes, and Nickelback. It was the type of music that, much like the nineties, seems quite timeless in the public consciousness. Almost everyone has heard the songs and can even sing along in a fashion. Speaking of singing along, let me know if you do with todays musical offerings eh? Let’s get on with it!

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

Evanescence – Bring Me To Life

Darude – Sandstorm

Groove Armada – Superstylin’

Katy Perry – I Kissed A Girl

Outkast – Hey Ya!

And there we have it! Not a Britney Spears or Justin Timberlake in sight! There are some mainstream ones in there, but I wanted to avoid those particular artists as I’m not a fan at all. I hope that you found something that you wanted to sing along with. That’s always fun to do when creating art! I hope you check all of these out anyways!

So, speaking of checking out, why not check out my social media sites? The asylum has a page over on Facebook, an account on Instagram and even a Twitter page! Also, if you really enjoy what I do here at the asylum, please consider supporting me over on the Ko-Fi page! Thanks for everything!

Until next week, have a very crazy day inmates!

Hello there inmates!

I hope that you’re all keeping safe and happy out in this crazy world! Things haven’t exactly quietened down yet have they? Though cases of Covid are slowing down a tad here in the UK, it appears that certain other nations aren’t so lucky. It concerns me quite a bit, because I have friends in these affected places. The US is a notable example. It is being handled horribly by an elite class that doesn’t appear to have much empathy for the working man. I dare not say the name of the one responsible in fears that he may appear. Like an inept Beetlejuice.

Enough about that though. I’ve bought three new books this past week, which I highlighted on my Instagram page. One of which was written by a very talented friend of mine; Rami Ungar. Here’s a link to his blog. Things here at the asylum are still steaming along quite nicely. I’ve been surprisingly content with my recent works which, as anybody who knows me personally can attest, is actually a supreme rarity. I can’t believe how close we are to 2000 followers now! It is truly humbling!

So it’s time for another volume of the Harlequins writing music! It’s rather astounding that I’m even able to still find bands that I’ve not already shared. I promise you though, my dear inmates, that I shall continue to find artists to stir your creative springs!

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

Evanescence – Call Me When You’re Sober

Real Hypha – Losing My Mind

Tiamat – Cain

Billy Idol – Rebel Yell

Twenty One Pilots – Ride

So there we have it for yet another issue of the Harlequins writing music!

I’d say that was a fairly varied arrangement, wouldn’t you? As always, I hope that you all give at least some of these artists a try, you may surprise yourself. Even if you don’t necessarily like my particular song choices, the artists may have something else for you. Worth a throw of the dice eh?

I hope you check out my friend Rami Ungar and his blog. He is a very adroit writer of horror in particular. Though he has all sorts of interesting things on his blog and also his Facebook page.

As I mentioned last time, I have a Facebook page, Twitter page and an Instagram page. I post some random stuff on each of these, as well as clues for each days poem a few hours beforehand. Sometimes I post weird photos of random objects in my room and “IRL” adventures! As always, if you like what I do here at the asylum, please consider supporting me over on the Ko-Fi page! Thank you as always! I may or may not have copy and pasted that from last time! I can be a lazy sod!

Farewell for now and have a very crazy day inmates!
