Happy wednesday inmates!

Well, I hope it’s happy anyways! I’m hardly going to greet you with a “Subpar wednesday inmates!” am I? That would completely mental and not in the good way. Uhh… anyways, I hope that you’re all having a great week so far. It’s been something of an up and down one for myself. Though I’m feeling alright in myself again, the bike has up and decided to require some significant garage work. I’ve been having to walk to work which is a pain as I’m rather out of shape these days! It won’t be cheap as always to get it fixed, but I suppose it’s best to get it all done. Safety being important and all that.

You know what else is important? Todays musical theme clue! Not really, but it was worth a try. Did anybody see it today? I’m sure at least one of you did, it was on my usual social media sites. I thought it was a pretty good one today, one I’ve been thinking about for a few weeks now actually.

So todays musical theme is electronic artists! I suppose that’s less of a theme and more of just sharing a specific genre. In a way. You see, electronic is pretty much as broad as saying rock. You could be talking about trance, or drum and bass, or techno or dubstep. That’s just to name a few. Ok, I’ve got a few more. You’ve got hardbass, or industrial, or chillstep or even glitch hop. The scope is more or less infinite really, especially when you take into account musical technology these days. I’ve always been a fan of various genres of the electronic variety, even since my teenage years. It started with the cheesy likes of Eiffel 65 and Vengaboys (perhaps more pop). Then onto my proper teenage years with Gorillaz and The Prodigy. Pendulum, Alan Walker, Kraftwerk and Gary Numan to name some more. It’s only broadened since then. I try all sorts out now and I think it would be rude of me not to share some, don’t you?

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

Katy B – Katy on a Mission

And there we have it! Now, especially after what I said before, it’s impossible to filter electronic music down to just five artists. I tried to get a good mix, but I know for a fact I will want to create another list on this same theme sometime in the future. I really hope that you all enjoy the choices I’ve included this week and as always check the artists out, they all deserve it. The music business is rough, as you can imagine!

Speaking of rough, getting noticed as a mediocre writer is as well! The social media pages are just one way I attempt to get my poetry out into the world. Do you know how you can help? By following or liking me over on the social media sites! The asylum has a page over on Facebook, an account on Instagram and also an account on Twitter. They are paltry I’ll admit, I’m inexperienced with social media marketing and whatnot you see so do me a solid eh? Haha! Also, if you really enjoy what I do here at the asylum, please consider supporting me over on the Ko-Fi page as well! Thank you so much my friends!

Until next week, have a very crazy day inmates!

Hello my fellow inmates!

How are you all finding the week? How is the world treating you? Pretty good I hope! I’ve actually found myself on a bit of a low this week. I’ve been sleeping an inordinate amount really. The bed has been just far too comfortable. I don’t think anything is wrong, it’s just one of those weeks I suppose. I’m sure we all have them. On the plus side, I’ve been pretty happy with my writing. It does kind of seem like less people have been reading them recently, but I’m pleased with my own work. We are our own foulest critics eh?

On to the meat and potatoes of todays post though. The Harlequins writing music! I’ve got five artists today that I’m hoping will blow your socks off. Apologies in advance, I’m sure your feet are perfectly fine. Anyways, did anybody see the clue for todays theme? It was from a movie I really loved when I was a whippersnapper. It was pretty well-known I think too. It’ll seem obvious once I tell you!

Todays musical theme is masks! Or masked bands more specifically! Yep, the movie I mentioned was ‘The Mask’. The one with Jim Carrey. I absolutely loved it! That’s not exactly relevant for todays music though, aside from the masks. It may not surprise you to hear that I like bands that wear masks. The mystique of it all. Artists may wear masks or disguises on stage for a few reasons. Firstly, it may simply be part of their onstage persona, think bands like Ghost or Slipknot. Secondly (and most obviously) it may be simply because they want to hide their personal identities to some extent. This tends to be short-lived, but it’s a valid reason. Thirdly, some bands utilise costumes on stage for particular songs. It may not be the artists fulltime get up, but acts as extra visual context for a particular songs meaning. Think Alice Cooper or even Rammstein.

You can find bands like these in pretty much every genre, though I suppose the stereotype is your typical heavy metal band in “satanic” costumes and the like. All I can say to that is don’t be too sure. I gibber a lot for someone who doesn’t know what he’s talking about don’t I? Right, I think it’s time to drop the mask don’t you? Haha!

Please join me as we delve into the musical minds of masked artists the world over!

Orville Peck – Dead of Night

Marshmello – Alone

And there we have it! I deliberately avoided including Slipknot as I felt that they would be everyone’s first assumption. Everyone expects them, you know! There’s quite a variety of genres there, don’t you think? You see what I mean now, it’s not ALL death metal! I hope you enjoy the musical choices I’ve made this week. Please check out all of these artists, I would recommend them all!

So, anyways you know what I’m about to say now. You do. Honestly, you do. The social media stuff, remember? The asylum has multiple social media pages on a few sites. I’ll include the links here, but you can also find them all in the ‘Contact Me’ button at the top of the page. The asylum has a page over on Facebook, an account on Instagram and a page over on Twitter as well. Please consider following/liking me over on those.

Until next week, have a very crazy day inmates!

Hello there inmates!

How are you all doing? Your creative waltzes and endeavours going swimmingly? Good! That’s what I like to hear! Things have been rather stable here at the asylum, the weather is back to being unsure what to do and my sleep cycle is as messy as ever! Life is… adequate I suppose. That sounds worse than it is actually, my bad. Things are alright here honestly, I just don’t have a great deal to convey for this week. I suppose quiet is better than difficult eh?

Enough rambling, let’s get on to the meat and potatoes of todays post eh? We’re here for music aren’t we? Not the lamentations of a sad clown. Did anybody see todays musical theme clue? It wasn’t exactly a clue in the strictest sense, just a picture of me being… weird. Hopefully people see the connection there?

Todays musical theme is weirdness. Or strangeness. Or oddity. Or any other synonym you can imagine for something that is outside the norm. The eccentric artists and songs with bizarre meanings. The music videos with odd visualisations. It’s quite hard to pin down the exact theme of weirdness, as it is by very definition supposed to escape being lumped together. To defy classification you know? Todays post is more going to be about sharing some of the weirdest songs (and artists) that I have discovered over the years. There have been some really strange musicians that I have come across in my life. I’m convinced I’m actually drawn to artists that have some kind of “quirk” if you like. Want to see what I can come up with this week? I’ll try my best sensei! uWu! I don’t know what that was…

Please join me as we delve into the musical minds of wacky artists the world over!

Weird Al Yankovic – Polka Face

And there we have it! I just had to include Weird Al you know. The clue is in the name after all! Some rather unique artists there don’t you think? I would very much like you to check out all of these artists my friends. They do deserve the attention and, generally speaking, they get less of it from the mainstream. Do me a favour eh?

I lied, can you do me two favours? Can you come and gander at my social media sites as well? The asylum has a page over on Facebook, an account on Instagram and a page over on Twitter as well. Please consider following and liking me over on those. It really helps me out. Links are provided here as always.

Until next week, have a very crazy day inmates!

Good <insert-time-of-day> inmates!

I think the heavens have permanently opened in the last week. It’s absolutely tipped it down almost every day! I’ve tried to avoid going outside as much as possible in response, though work obviously demands it. I’ve gotten lucky between showers at least. The nation has been struck with some rather bad news as I’m sure you’re all aware by now. Queen Elizabeth the 2nd passed away the other day. The typical British weather has shown up in force for the occasion and I can only assume it’s the country crying over the Queens death as well. I’m not really interested in the royal family or anything like that myself, but it will be kind of strange using the term King instead of Queen I must admit. I’m indifferent to be honest, so I’ll leave it at that.

We’re here for a more positive reason today after all! The Harlequins writing music! Back again for another week. Did anybody see the clue this time? It was a bit more on the vague side for a change. As in, it could have represented multiple possibilities. Just wow! So original! Woo! Ok, enough theatrics, let’s get on with it eh?

Todays musical theme is… Air! One of those things we all need or so I’m told. It’s all around us all of the time so I suppose it’s no wonder that it has inspired music. It’s one of those elements that gets attributed to all kinds of things, in the same vein as fire or water. Air can represent the sky, freedom, life or even knowledge. It can inspire and it can suffocate. It can be positive and adaptable or it can be a destructive tornado. As such it’s hard to pin down what particular songs could be themed around the air. It’s something you just kind of feel when listening to one, though of course there are songs that are inspired by specific air-related things too. I’ll see if I can demonstrate what I mean as I feel I don’t have the words.

Please, indulge me and join me as we delve into the musical minds of airy artists the world over!

Electric Light Orchestra – Mr Blue Sky
https://www.jefflynneselo.com/

Tycho – Cloud Generator
https://tychomusic.com/

Nelly Furtado – I’m Like A Bird
https://nellyfurtado.com/

Altimeter – Astronought
https://soundcloud.com/altimeter

Little Big Town – Tornado
https://www.littlebigtown.com/#/

And there we have it! Is there a draught coming through or is it just me? With any luck, that may demonstrate what I mean about air-related songs. If not, at least you still have some nice artists to listen to eh? I hope you all enjoy the choices I’ve made this week anyway. Be sure to check out all of these artists, they definitely deserve your… airtime? Har har!

So, I’ll get the last bit out of the way for you. The social media bit remember? The asylum has a few social media pages you know. I have a page over on Facebook that I’m still trying to work out how to grow, an Instagram account and a page over on Twitter as well! Please think about following or liking me over on those. Also, if you really enjoy what I do here at the asylum, please consider supporting me over on the Ko-Fi page as well! Thanks for everything my friends!

Until next week, have a very crazy day inmates!

Hello there inmates!

Well it certainly is feeling like summer is well and truly coming to an end now. It’s still warm enough, but we’re definitely getting more grey skies and rainstorms (more on that shortly). It’s made work a little less exhausting but it certainly makes riding the bike a little more thorny. I’m being cautious don’t worry! How are all of you? How is the weather in your own corners of the world? Looking forward to fall/autumn? I’m mostly just excited for Halloween if I’m honest. Best holiday of the year!

So, it’s time for the Harlequins writing music isn’t it? I’m remembering that right aren’t I? I posted a clue to todays theme earlier on today that may not even be too shocking. You’ll see the inspiration almost immediately I assure you. Did anybody see it?

Sooooo… todays writing musical theme is storms! We’ve been having a fair few here in the last week. In fact, one just started as I’m writing this! Here’s hoping that no electrical circuits get taken out eh? Well, thunder, lightning and rain are common tropes when it comes to music. They can be used to represent a huge range of human concepts, from turmoil or rage, to power or sorrow. The destructive nature of storms is well-documented: flooding, lightning strikes or vicious winds. On the other hand, the majesty and beauty of Mother Nature also shines through when we talk about storms. All of this lends itself to all kinds of music, no particular genre of course. Let’s see what falls out of the clouds today eh? Musically I mean.

Please join me as we delve into the musical minds of dazzling artists the world over!

Enya – Storms in Africa
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Enya

And there we have it once again! Feels like lightning in the air! Quite a mix there eh? I bet you could come up with some different storm/rain/lightning-related songs yourselves too. Feel free to share some, by the way. I hope you enjoy my choices for this week anyways, please consider checking out these artists, though I imagine a couple are hardly unknown. Hehe!

Speaking of unknown, did you know I have social media pages? You did? Oh. Well, I’m going to shill for myself anyway! The asylum here has a few social media sites you know, I share random stuff on them, plus clues for my poems a few hours ahead of time. The asylum has a page over on Facebook, an account on Twitter and a page over on Instagram as well. Links included for your convenience.

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

Good day inmates!

What an amazing weekend that was! As any of you who read last weeks musical would know, I went to the Reading music festival here in the UK. It was my first ever festival and I absolutely adored it! My brother and my best friend really treated me by taking me. We had good weather, great music and pretty fantastic times as well! I’m so grateful to those guys. We even enjoyed some artists that we never thought we would, but I suppose that’s the beauty of live music really. It gives a different perspective. On a side note, the city of Reading (what little we saw) was lovely as well. It was so clean and the hotel was really quite unique! It was originally some kind of market street that had been changed into a building. I would definitely go again!

Apologies for my brothers beer gut there! Haha! So, we’re here for music as well ain’t we? Did anybody see todays musical theme clue? Aha! That’s a trick question. Due to my own incompetence I actually forgot to post the clue for todays musical theme. I know I know, I’m terrible. I wasn’t able to post the clues over the sunday/Monday due to being in Reading, and managed to post it fine yesterday. Today I don’t have any excuse really. Oops!

Let’s move past that embarrassing thing eh? Todays musical theme is a specific band once again: Billy Talent. A rather unique (in my opinion) rock band from Canada. I featured one of their songs in my writing music post a few weeks ago and I’ve had them in my head since. Why not create a whole post about them eh?

I have always found the instrumental design and riffs of this band rather unique. They experiment with different styles ranging from more punk rock sounds to almost full-on alternative metal with screaming and solos. The vocals of Benjamin Kowalewicz are one of the most recognizable aspects of the band. There are few vocalists who sound remotely similar. It’s a good thing that I’m not a reviewer isn’t it? I’m just sort of rambling. Anybody just wanna hear the band instead?

Please my friends, join me as we delve into the musical minds of Billy Talent!

Billy Talent – Try Honesty

Billy Talent – Devil In A Midnight Mass

Billy Talent – Surrender

Billy Talent – River Below

Billy Talent – Fallen Leaves

And there we have it! Aren’t they great? I imagine they’re not everyone’s cup of tea, but I hoped that by featuring a variety from their discography, that there’d be something for everyone. Let me know what you guys think of my choices this week eh? I’m not going to be this useless next week I swear. Haha!

Despite my uselessness, do you guys mind pitying me and my social media sites? I’m kidding, but this is my usual social media spiel anyways. I have a page over on Facebook, an account on Instagram and a page over on Twitter as well. Please think about following me over on those pages, I post random stuff and, when I’m not being silly, I post clues for my poems ahead of time. Also, if you really enjoy what I do here at the asylum, please consider supporting me over on the Ko-Fi page. Thank you for everything!

Until next week, have a very crazy day inmates!

Good day inmates!

Another Wednesday dawns (well, it’s evening but shush) and here we are once again for my usual tangential post about music and my nonsensical life. Speaking of which, it’s been a rather good week so far actually. I’ve been really happy with my creative output and nothing has actually gone wrong. A rather pitiable yardstick perhaps, but still. Also, I apologise for my tardiness in responding to comments recently. It’s not intentional I assure you all, I just struggle to manage my time. Haha!

Interesting times ahead you know. My brother and my best friend have surprised me with a rather amazing thing. They both kept it a secret for some time but they’re taking me to the Reading Festival this weekend. I’m so very lucky and blessed! That is a bit of a segue. Did anybody see todays musical theme? Hopefully it makes sense what the connection there is. I’m grinning right now.

Todays musical theme is, in fact, the Reading Festival! For those not in the know, Reading is one of the larger musical festivals here in the UK. Behind the likes of Glastonbury or Download, but still around 85,000 I believe. The musical tastes involved tend to be rather varied, with pop artists, rock bands and electronic DJs playing alongside one another. I’ve not been to any festival myself so far believe it or not, so I’m extremely excited to be given the opportunity. The choices for todays music are going to be based on my personal favourites among the setlist (if that’s the term). Five artists, as always. You know the drill by now my friends! Would you care to see if I picked well?

Join me as we delve into the musical minds of wonderful artists of the Reading Festival!

Pale Waves – Heavenly
https://www.palewaves.co.uk/

All Time Low – Lost In Stereo

Gorgon City – Imagination
https://ffm.bio/gc

Bru-C – No Excuses
https://www.bru-c.com/

The 1975 – Happiness
https://the1975.com/

And there we have it! How about that eh? Some interesting choices there eh? I actually should mention that not all of these artists are on the day (Sunday) that I’m going to be attending, but I still feel they should be mentioned regardless. I’m not sure I have shown the greatest variety in artists this time but I certainly tried. I certainly hope that you enjoy my choices this week either way. Also, wish me luck at the festival eh? I’m going to need it!

So, for my usual social media rubbish. The asylum here has a few social media sites that I post random nonsense and clues for my poems a few hours ahead of posting them. I have a page over on Facebook, an account on Instagram and a page on Twitter as well! Also, if you really enjoy what I do here at the asylum, please consider supporting me over on the Ko-Fi page as well! Thank you for everything inmates!

And as always, have a very crazy day inmates!

Hi there inmates!

It finally rained here on the island! The asylum got absolutely drenched! A little bit anyway. Hopefully that’ll stop people complaining about the drought and the hot weather for a day or two. Maybe. I’ve not minded it personally, the heat over the last month or the stormy spot we had today. How is it where all of you are? Having a nice time? I certainly hope so. Can’t be having more morose artists out there. Well I guess we can, but still. We want a happy and healthy artistic community out here you know!

On a less sad note, how about that musical theme clue eh? I don’t think it was a hard one to guess. Though I suppose it’s hard to tell when you’re the one who put it forward. Did anybody get it? Todays theme was actually suggested by a good friend of mine, so you can thank her. Hehe!

Todays theme is focussed on a particular musical genre this week. Quite possibly the most chilled out of all genres. Todays theme is reggae! I actually originally intended to include a reggae artist last week for my relaxation/serenity writing music post but I completely forgot about it. Fortunately my good friend just suggested doing a whole post on reggae this week. So here we are. When you think of reggae music, it tends to conjure a particular image doesn’t it? Sitting on a Caribbean beach sipping some rum or perhaps smoking something spicy if that’s your poison instead, watching the time and tides go past. It’s hard to escape the image of Jamaica when it comes to reggae, though it’s hardly confined to that lovely nation. It was however concocted there of course. I don’t feel that I could really talk about the heritage or instrumentality of the genre myself, I’m not too versed I’m afraid. But I do like the tunes, so there’s that at least. Want to hear some?

Please join me as we delve into the musical minds of reggae artists the world over!

The Ohmz – Sweet Reggae Beat

Marcia Griffiths – The First Cut

Bob Marley – Jamming
https://www.bobmarley.com/

Lucky Dube – Remember Me
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lucky_Dube

UB40 – Kingston Town
https://ub40.global/

And there we have it! That first artist is actually a local band that I’m very fond of, they’re really good. Don’t you think? I know that I could have just had a list of Bob Marley tunes for this week, but I think that would be unfair to all of the Reggae artists that have followed in his footsteps. The genre is all about being chill and spreading love to everyone around the world, whoever they may be. I think that’s an idea we can all get behind eh? Go and show these artists some would you?

Speaking of spreading love, would you kindly offer me some too? Social media love that is! The asylum has a Facebook account, an Instagram page and also an Twitter account. Would you consider following me over on those as well as the blog? It would mean a lot to me. Also, if you really enjoy what I do here at the asylum, please consider supporting me over on the Ko-Fi page as well. No pressure of course and thank you for everything my friends!

Until next week, have a very crazy day inmates!

Hello there inmates!

Well Cowes week is finally over and yet the heat has returned with a vengeance this following week. My poor bike and I suffered a bit today in particular. I went for a ride to a beach, hence the photos on my social media earlier today and unfortunately it was a bit much for the scooter. It overheated at one point and I had to leave it to cool down before I could continue riding. Aside from that, it has been rather pleasant though. The island just feels more alive than ever right now due to the volume of people about, though the plants are suffering something of a drought. I’m hoping for some light rain soon for their sake.

So, let’s talk about music eh? That’s the actual purpose of todays post after all. Did anybody see the clue for todays theme? I thought it was clever myself. It was a bit of a red herring actually. It was a spaceship, yet todays theme is nothing to do with space or science fiction. You need to look deeper. The specific spaceship in the clue has a name. Todays musical theme is that name. Get it?

I think that’s enough teasing eh? Today’s musical theme, based on that spaceships name, is serenity. We’re going for zen today you see. Calmness and feeling as chill as possible. In a world that is so hectic, full of strife and stress, it’s good to just sit in your room or bath and just listen to some chilling beats. Whether that be something folky, acoustic or “chillstep”. You can find relaxation in all kinds of music, but I’m going to focus today on music that is specifically ‘designed’ to be calming. It’s nice to just slow the pace down every now and then. It’s something I should probably do in my own life more often in fact. I’d wager that is the case for many of us in todays world. Let’s relax together eh?

And there we have it. I’m struggling to keep my eyes open I’m so chilled. I’m not bored or anything, it’s just nice to feel a sliver of meditative energy for a change. I tried to get a suitable variety of music genres here as you may be able to see. One of these artists I only discovered today in fact, I’ll not say which one though just for the giggles. I hope you check out all of these artists today as I feel they all deserve the attention. Please have yourself a relaxed evening on me eh?

So, let’s have some social media stuff eh? If you want to see my “super smart” poem and musical theme clues, as well my wacky adventures, you’ll need to join me over on my social media sites.

Good day inmates!

And how are we all finding the week so far? Nobody has melted yet I hope. It’s certainly been muggy enough. It actually feels slightly cooler at time of writing, but I can still feel my palms being a little bit clammy. Isn’t that just the epitome of attractiveness eh? Anyways, it’s been an alright week here so far. The local “world renowned” festival known as Cowes Week is in full swing right now so the town is remarkably busy at the moment. For those who don’t know, Cowes Week is a yachting or sailing event that is one of the main things this particular town is known for. Perks of being a sailors port I guess? In practice, it means lots of drunk people, lots of traffic and above average levels of noise. It can be a lot of fun though.

Speaking of fun, did anybody get todays musical theme clue? It was less a clue and more of a obvious indicator really. It was really pretty obvious what it was saying. You’d only see if you follow my social media pages though. I’m sure you adorable little inmates do that though right? I’m winking, if anybody couldn’t guess.

So, todays musical theme. You see, I was between nightmares last night and a random thought came to me: I’d never tried maple syrup. One thing led to another and I found myself listening to a Canadian music artists playlist on Youtube. So, as that extremely random analogy may reveal, todays musical theme is the great nation of Canada. One of the more well-known and larger members of the Commonwealth, I tend to refer to Canada as the really polite neighbour of the USA. That’s not saying anything about Americans, but I just feel Canadians have that stereotype about them eh? It’s yet another country on my ever-increasing list of places I’d love to visit. Toronto in particular has always intrigued me. Until that playlist last night I hadn’t realised just how many ground-breaking artists are actually Canadian. Quite a few of them I mistook for American or even British artists. I doublechecked those on todays list though I promise. Want to see what I came up with? By the way, no I’m not including Nickelback. Just no.

That aside, join me as we delve into the musical minds of Canadian artists… the world over?

And there we have it my friends! I appear to have begun growing moose horns after listening to those a few times. Might be hard to put the top hat on but I’ll work it out. Did you enjoy todays musical choices? Bit of a mix today eh? I hope you check all of these artists out, especially if you aren’t familiar. I would recommend them all!

Now, time for my usual scheduled shilling! The asylum has a page over on Facebook where I post random stuff and clues for my poems ahead of time.
