Hello there inmates!

How are you all getting on? Not frozen yet then I hope! It’s been a bit of a chilly one this week hasn’t it? At least it has been here on this island. It’s starting to feel a bit more like Christmas. So that’ll be feeling perpetually cold and having no cash whatsoever. There are certainly enough bright coloured lights everywhere! Happy holidays and such! I feel like my cynicism seems to be flowing at full power right now so I’ll apologise on that point. I’m loving life I swear! Haha!

So, speaking of loving life, who wants to listen to some music? Did anybody see the clue to todays musical theme? I thought it was a pretty good one, if I do say so myself.

Well, the musical theme for today is fantasy! Ahh of course! The realm of elves and orcs and short people with hairy feet. It’s one of my favourite genres in almost all mediums, behind horror of course. I’ve been fascinated with fantasy since my early years. Reading ‘The Hobbit’ and ‘The Sword of Shannara’ books back in the day definitely had an impact my interests going forward. I’ve written many poems about several facets of fantasy. From magic to mythical creatures, from wizards to worlds that don’t exist. It’s the quintessential essence of escapism, in much the same way as science fiction can be. I just think I’d rather be able to wield magic than fly a spaceship. How about you guys? Also, want to hear some music? I knew you would!

Join me as we delve into the musical minds of mythic artists the world over!

Spellblast – Goblin’s Song

TheFatRat – Fly Away

Eluveitie – Omnos

Nightwish – Amaranth

Aviators – Traveler’s Song

And there we have it for another week!

Did any of these songs whisk you away to another world unlike our own? I hope they cast a spell on you! I hope you enjoy each of these artists and check out their other music as well! They all deserve the attention and I’m sure you’ll enjoy them as well!

Speaking of enjoying stuff, let’s have some social media links. The asylum has a page over on Facebook, an account on Instagram and a page over on Twitter as well! Consider following me over on those pages too for poem clues ahead of time and other nonsense! Also, if you enjoy what I do here at the asylum, please consider supporting me over on the Ko-Fi page too! Thanks for everything!

Until next week, have a very crazy day inmates!

Hello once more inmates!

I hope that you’re having a wonderfully manic day today! It’s been a rather nice day for me, though I am in a wee bit of discomfort today. I may or may not have gone for a walk yesterday for a bit too long and with suntan lotion. I’m quite badly burned up one side. Uncomfortable but amusing in it’s own way. Haha! That’s a lesson learned, I can promise you that!

It’s been business as usual here at the asylum really this week. I’ve been uncharacteristically pleased with my recent work. I’m my own worst critic at the best of times, but still. I’m hoping that you are all enjoying my recent stuff and I’d also like to extend a warm welcome to the newest inmates that have followed the blog recently. I don’t feel I can ever thank all of you enough!

So it is time for the next edition of the Harlequins writing music! It’s time to share five musical artists that the Harlequin enjoys listening to while writing. It could be orchestral, it could be metal. It could even be Hip-hop! You never know! I try to vary it as much as humanly (or inhumanly) possible!

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

Seether – Remedy

Bricks + Mortar – Keep This Place Beautiful

The Rumjacks – An Irish Pub Song

Live in Athens

WinWel – You Make My Day (Feat. Lua Lua)

Nightwish – Bye Bye Beautiful

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

Here’s hoping that you give at least a couple of these artists a try! It’s a decent selection is it not? The voices say I may be a tad biased in saying that, but there you go! Haha! I’m torn between doing another writing music post next week or something a little different. We’ll see eh?

As always, if you like what I do here at the asylum, please consider supporting me over at the Ko-Fi page! Thank you so much!

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