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?)

Whispered – Dead Cold Inside

Sabaton – Fields Of Verdun

Forlorn Hope – Vive l’empereur

Port Sulphur Band – Bullet’s Lullaby

Olivier Adams- Mortal Kombat

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!

Hello there inmates!

I hope that the day finds you all well and making the most of every hour! It’s been a rather mundane week, but its allowed me to find some curious subjects for poems. I was particularly happy with ‘Hood’ which comes from my interest in military history and ‘Bloodied Asphalt’ which was inspired by a news story here on the island this week. A little different from my recent stuff I feel! Hope it’s been enjoyable!

So, here’s another edition of the Harlequins writing music! It’s going to be another smorgasbord of musical artists for you people to get down and arty with! It’ll be five artists again this week. Let’s see what I came up with this time eh? I can barely contain the anticipation of what past-me came with!

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

Coyote Kisses – Six Shooter

Serj Tankian – Empty Walls

Port Sulphur Band – Rise Up Dead Man

Initial D – Running In The 90s

Smashing Pumpkins – Bullet With Butterfly Wings

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

Some curious choices there no? There was one in particular that was a slight nuisance to find the information for and that was the Initial D one. You see, Initial D is actually a manga/anime/movie that quite a few eurodance tracks are attributed to, including this one. However the actual artist is the Italian man I have linked to. Just to clear up any confusion.

So, I’m going to move on to my social media nonsense now. The asylum has a page on Facebook, and account over on Instagram and even a page on Twitter. It would help me a lot if you glorious people could come follow/like me if you enjoy my work. 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!

So, much gratitude to you fine folks and until next week, have a very crazy day inmates!
