Hello there inmates!

I hope you’re all having a truly excellent day today! I’m doing fine as well, thanks for asking. Was that you? I have no idea, it’s appreciated either way. It’s been a fairly bog-standard week so far, with no major events to speak of. With that said, I’ve been very much enjoying reading the comments all of you lovely people have been leaving me recently. It makes me so happy to actually converse with people about the stuff I’ve written. It still always makes my dark little heart skip when I see people actually responding and such. A big thank you to all of you!

So, you know what day it is. Why, it’s Wednesday! That means it’s time for the Harlequins writing music once again. Despite the theme of the previous two editions, I decided to go with a new subject this week. It can’t all be summer sun and parties you know! No, the theme for today is quite different. And no, it’s not related to the football. I may be British, but I’m not interested in whichever flavoured team is kicking the pigs bladder this day or that. I don’t watch it and I don’t really know anything about it. So, that’s that! Haha! So, the theme for today. Did anybody guess from the clue today?

Well, the theme for today is sort of a mix. The theme is both technology and robotics. From science fiction, to the devices we use every day, to electronic/disco and all the way across the aisle to hackers and cyberpunk. Technology inspires music all the time, both in style and in creative methods. So, this can be an extremely broad theme I suppose. I think I’ll avoid my usual nonsensical spiel about the particulars of how technology inspires music artists simply because I’d be here typing for days! You’re here for the music, so you shall have the music! Let’s see what we have today!

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

Grendel – Timewave Zero

Jamiroquai – Virtual Insanity

Daft Punk – Technologic

Munro – IRL.exe

Flight Of The Conchords – The Humans Are Dead

And there we have it!

That was a rather wacky arrangement of artists wasn’t it? I think that may be one of the more varied selections I’ve done for a little while, at least in terms of genre. I hope that you guys enjoy at least most of these choices this week and check out the artists on their pages too. They all deserve the love! Use your technology to show them how much you like their technological music eh?

So, I really ought to include some social media nonsense eh? Well, the asylum has a page over on Facebook, an account on Instagram and what do you know?! An account on Twitter as well! Also, if you enjoy what I do here at the asylum, please consider supporting me over on the Ko-Fi page! Cheers for everything!

Until next week, have a very crazy day inmates!

Hello there inmates!

I hope that you’re all having a wonderfully splendiferous day today! I hope you’ve all been keeping safe as well, dont make me get the cattle prod! Jokes aside, its been a reasonably busy week. Spent a great deal of time demolishing a conservatory with my dad. Its hard work, but awfully fun. Not to mention cathartic! I’ve been feeling a little disconcerted that my recent work has been a tad overly political. I was wondering if you immates felt that it was a positive or would prefer I stick to my usual bizarre lane.

I’ve finally realised just how close we are to halloween now. Ive managed to find some stuff to begin painting my face again so I can’t wait to bring the Oldschool Harlequin back to life again. Not just for halloween either! Hehe!

So its time for our next edition of the Harlequins writing music today! I must confess it is beginning to become quite a strain to drag new bands out of my head this week. Its possible I may have repeated at least one of these bands, though the importance of said songs will be no less illustrious. Just a word of warning there! Haha!

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

Dorp – London Out There

Grendel – Timewave Zero

King Diamond – Masquerade Of Madness

Lady Gaga – Alejandro

Miracle Of Sound – Liquid Nights And Disco Lights

And there we have it for another sample of the Harlequins writing music!

Again, apologies if I have repeated a couple artists. I’m fairly certain that even if I have, Ive chosen different songs so that helps a bit. As always I hope you check out all of these artists and give them some love!

So, now for the social media bit. I have a prescence on multiple platforms by now. I have a Facebook page, a twitter account and an Instagram page. Also, if you enjoy what I do here at the asylum, please consider supporting me over at the Ko-fi page. Thanks for all of your support!

Until next time, have a very crazy day inmates!

Hello inmates!

I hope you’re all having a very crazy year! I can’t believe it’s nearly Halloween again already! It shocked me to discover that my last writing music post was at Halloween last year. I do say that is unforgivable! It feels like a long time since I posted something that wasn’t poetry. I’m not saying that’s strictly a bad thing mind you, I love writing my poetry after all. It just seems like even this asylum is risking becoming a one trick pony. We can’t have that, that’s for sure!

So here we are once again, chapter 15 of the Harlequins writing music! For some of you who may be new inmates of the blog, I’ll briefly explain what this is. This section (if that is the correct terminology) is about music that I enjoy playing while I write my fiction and poems. I’m sure I’m not the only one who doesn’t like writing in total silence! The Harlequins writing music is simply a place for me to share some of the artists and songs that I particularly enjoy to tune into whilst I weave my scribblings. I will be sharing 5 songs here that I have been listening to recently. These could be almost any genre, you’ll just have to see! Have fun!

Now, let us delve into the musical minds of whimsical artists the world over!

The Kinks – You Really Got Me

The Cure – Friday I’m In Love

Grendel – Chemicals + Circuitry

Boy George – Evil Is So Civilized


Katatonia – Saw You Drown

Home Page

So there we have it for another chapter of the Harlequins writing music! I hope you’ve enjoyed this post and that perhaps you’ve found your new favorite artist. I encourage you to check out all of these bands. Also, I encourage you to check out my previous writing music posts for even more musical majesty! I intend to create a post in the near future that compiles the writing music posts so far into once place so keep an eye out for that! Be sure to put the eye back in of course…

One last thing, I have a new poem planned to be posted tomorrow at some point. It will most likely be in the evening, but who knows. My posting times are sporadic to say the least. As far as what it’s about, all I’m going to say is I haven’t written a poem about a serial killer in a while. Take of that what you will.

Until next time, have a very crazy day inmates!
