Hello there inmates!

I’m having a rather adequate week, I’m glad you asked! How have you all been? I hope you’ve all been working hard and playing harder. The weather on our little island has been a little bit bi-polar so far. We had a pretty major storm here that has caused some inconvenience to various homeowners and outdoor workers. I’m not a huge fan of the rain you see, though I must admit thunder storms are rather amazing to watch from indoors. However, the very next day it’s right back to boiling hot sun! Grr! Oh yea, the writing has been rather uplifting this week. I’ve had some wonderful comments that have made me feel really nice and warm inside.

So, let’s talk music eh? Did anybody get the clue for todays musical theme? Well, let me tell you what it is. I’m sure the suspense has been killing you. No? Well, that’s alright! The theme for todays music is combat! Yep, swords striking against one another, the swoosh of martial arts attacks and the thundering pound of artillery fire. War, physical prowess and military history are extremely dense and powerful areas for inspiration when it comes to music. We all have witnessed warfare and fighting, whether it be regrettably in person, or on the silver screen. Powerful emotions run through these things like pulsing veins. Anger, sorrow and pain are prime examples of this. Combat is, unfortunately so, a very human exercise. So, would you like to hear the artist I’ve chosen to demonstrate my little spiel here? Well, I’m only too happy to oblige.

Join me as we delve into the minds of martial artists the world over! (See what I did there?)

And there we have it for another week. What did you think of all of those? I actually struggled to find songs I liked in many different genres for this theme. Could anybody suggest any songs/artists from some other genres, I’d be very interested to hear them! I hope that you all give these artists a look, they all deserve the exposure in my opinion. That last one was a bit of a joke choice, but it is still very much combat-oriented. Give them all some love eh?

Well, I ought to include some social media stuff in case anybody is curious. The asylum has a page over on Facebook, an account over on Instagram and an account on Twitter. Come and like me over there to see clues for my poems ahead of time! Also, if you enjoy what I do here at the asylum, please consider supporting me over at the Ko-Fi page! Thank you for everything!

Until next time, have a very crazy day inmates!

Good day inmates!

Hope you’re all having a suitably kooky and enjoyable day today! It’s been a while since we’ve been here, hasn’t it? It’s been far too long since I made one of these posts (and frankly, too long since I was active here at the asylum!). It’s a comeback special of the Harlequins writing music, would you believe?! Or at least that’s how I see it.

So what is going to make this writing post different? If i’m honest, not a great deal. It’s just a big deal personally cause i’ve not been active in so long. But i’ll tell you what. The voices in my head said I could have six songs/bands for a change from the usual five. Isn’t that kind of them?

So, without further adieu, join me as we delve into the musical minds of innovative artists the world over!

So there we have it for yet another volume of the Harlequins writing music! That was quite a motley selection, wasn’t it? I alway enjoy doing these posts, and i’ve missed it in all honesty. As always, I hope you give all of these artists a gander. They’re all rather exquisite. Also, I decided to include a rather diverse set this time, so hopefully there’s something for everyone eh?

So, until next time, have a very crazy day inmates!
