Good day inmates!

I hope that you’re all having a wonderfully crazy and safe day today! I must admit it’s been something of an uneventful week since my previous non-poem post. I’ve just been keeping my head down and writing everyday as normal. The weather has been very up and down once again, but the temperature has remained friendly. I’ve found myself feeling a little bit down the last few days, though I must confess I have no idea why. Some of you may have noticed a few reasonably “depressing” poems recently. I just needed to relinquish some angst I suppose. Best way to get it out eh?

So anyways, on to happier pastures! It’s time for part 40 of the Harlequins writing music! I’m very surprised nobody has begged me to stop making these by now! Haha! I remember when I began, I thought it’d only be 3-4 posts and everyone (including me) would grow bored of them. Alas, here we are! It’s time to share five more musical artists that I love listening to while writing. Or sometimes just when I’m chilling with a book. As always, I’ll try to keep it varied! We all like to listen to different kinds of music after all! Let’s see what we get today eh?

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

Mushroomhead – We Are The Truth

Paramore – Monster

VNV Nation – Illusion

Electric Six – Danger! High Voltage!

Red Hot Chili Peppers – Dani California

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

Some well known artists there this time eh? Not everything I listen to has to be the most obscure Disco-goth-banjo-rock with opera vocals you know! I truly do listen to all sorts. I hope that you give these artists and their songs a chance anyway! I don’t believe you will be disappoined!

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! Haha!

Until next time, have a very crazy day my dear inmates!

Hello inmates!

It’s been another crazy time since last wednesday. Here’s hoping that you’ve all been having a nice time. Hope you’re keeping as safe as possible! The UK is beginning to slowly slide towards a modicum of normality after Covid, with the majority of businesses and services being allowed to open in the coming week or two. There are odd exceptions, but we’re getting there I suppose. It’s hard to say if it’s too soon or not, but it appears to be relatively safe here on the Isle of Wight at least. It’s been wonderful to see and hear how well things have been going in New Zealand. All celebrations and life anew. I have a friend who lives there who says it’s a great feeling and I can totally believe it!

I’ve still been working hard to get more exposure for the asylum on social media though, I must confess, I don’t think i’m very good at it! Haha! I’ll include links to the social media pages at the end of this post because i’m a hopeless shill I suppose. With that said, i’ve been very humbled (as always) by the absolute darlings who grace these pages. You really don’t know how much of a boost you all give me.

It’s time for another post of the Harlequins writing music. And what a post we have for you today! Five more awesome musical artists to perhaps whet your personal appetites for creativity. Or perhaps even just to chill in the sun to. I wonder what marvels we have for you today! The voices haven’t told me ahead of time, I swear!

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

She Wants Revenge – Out Of Control

Dolly Parton – Jolene

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

That was quite a variety wasn’t it? I hope you all give some of these artists a try as always. They definitely all deserve it, especially the lesser-known ones. With that said, they’re all better known than me! Haha!

So, on to the shilling I suppose. 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 my adventures in “Real Life” or just random objects in my room. 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!

Until next week, I doff my hat to you and wish you a very crazy day inmates!

Good day inmates!

Here’s hoping you are having a wonderful wednesday! It’s been more or less smooth sailing here at the asylum. I’ve been really happy with the recent poems i’ve posted, which believe it or not is a rarity for me. I don’t tend to like my own work. I feel that is a curse of the creative soul. I’ve been trying to grow the blog, get some exposure on other sites and just being a wacky little streak of moonlight. It’s been rather tiring I will confess. I know that fame or being noticed isn’t really the point of this blog or my writing, but do you ever wonder if there is an “end result” so to speak? This is a genuine question to my fellow inmates out there. Is the writing itself the point? Or do we seek some kind of validation? I’ve laid awake some nights recently wondering.

So, it’s time for part thirty-eight of the Harlequins writing music. Many of you will know the drill by now I imagine! Five musical artists that I like to listen to when i’m either writing or thinking about writing (procrastination be damned). I do say this every time, but it bears mentioning. I will be attempting to vary it up a bit, I like to get different kinds of vibes and images from all different genres. And it also has the added bonus of presenting something for everyone, if that makes sense! So here we go!

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

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

I hope that you give all of these artists a fair chance. They all deserve the exposure and the attention, in my eyes at least. Bit of a mix there eh? Especially that Scatman John, now that’s one you don’t hear every day!

Now, as I mentioned i’m trying to get more exposure for the asylum right now. 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. Just for a little bit of fun of course! A little bit of self-promotion can be a slight confidence boost! Haha! As always, if you like what I do here at the asylum, please consider supporting me over on the Ko-Fi page! Thank you so much!

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