Hello there inmates!

I didn’t see you lurking there! How are you all doing? Having a nice week so far? That’s wonderful to hear! It’s been a rather eventful one for me too. I actually started a new job this week, which has given me the opportunity to get out and about a bit more. Hopefully make some new friends too eh? The weather has been absolutely bizarre. Thunderstorm after hot sun after rainstorm. It simply can’t make its mind up. It’s quite frustrating when you’ve got to travel by bike. Haha!

Anyway, let’s get on to the meat of todays post. The reason that you’re all here, theoretically. The Harlequins writing music! I always find it breaks up the week quite nicely, between my poems. A reprieve, if you will. Did anybody see todays theme clue? It’s a slightly harder one to explain if I’m honest. And potentially something of a red herring.

Todays musical theme is… high school! Or rather “high school never ends”. The clue I used today was from the music video of the Bowling For Soup song by the same name. Clever eh? But what do I mean by this one? Songs based around school wouldn’t be all that interesting after all. Well, no. Todays musical theme is more centred around showing you all a few of the songs/artists that I “started with” back in the day. The favourite songs and bands of my formative years. The music that has contributed to shaping my tastes these days. Angsty teenage Harley was a bit of a plonker, but present Harley has a lot to thank him for on the musical front. Want to hear some of the music that I listened to in my bedroom on my PC or iPod? Let’s try it eh?

And there we have it! What did you think of those eh? There were so many others that I could have included on this one, but I’d be here for eons. I may even ending up doing this theme again some time. So, from listening to these, you may be able to see how they have influenced my own writing style, creative endeavours and indeed this asylum as well. I really suggest listening to all of these, they definitely deserve the attention. It’s nice to look back and see how far I’ve come.

Speaking of nice, would you be to me? Maybe follow me on social media? The asylum has a page over on Facebook, an account over on Instagram and even a page on Twitter. Please consider following on those as well, it really helps me out. Also, if you really enjoy what I do here at the asylum, please consider supporting me over on the Ko-Fi page as well.

Until next week, have a very crazy day inmates!

Hello there inmates!

How goes your week so far? Exceedingly well I hope! Getting everything in your personal worlds done and dusted eh? I admit I had a bit of a slump early in the week, but that has since passed. I suppose posting poems like ‘Memento’ or ‘Remembering’ may have given my low mood away, but I assure you I’m rather good now. The weather here has been a bit schizophrenic as well, rain one minute then blue sky the next. Here was me thinking I belonged in an asylum, but I think the weather does more so. At least it’s been warmer!

Enough nonsense for now anyways. How about some music? The Harlequins writing music to be specific. Did anybody see the clue today? It was a good one I swear! You should have seen it! Oh well, you’ll get some music today anyways, I forgive you.

So, the theme for todays writing music is rather fabulous one! The theme for today is female empowerment! Oh yes indeed! This one is for all of those mothers, sisters, aunts and grandmommies! This was sort of inspired by the situation over in the US right now with the current abortion law fiasco. It has made me very sad to say the least, and after talking to a good friend over the pond, I wanted to show some form of solidarity with the good ladies who are having their rights threatened. Not only that, but there are some really good bops that can be centred around lifting up the ladies in your life. Many artists have written songs about how much they love their femininity, grace or maternal instinct. Songs about how girls can do anything that a man can do. Songs about a girls night out. I’m sure the list goes on! So, let’s see what I can come up with and hopefully I do you goddesses some justice eh?

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

Shania Twain – Man! I Feel Like A Woman

And there we have it! I know that this has been a slightly different kind of writing music post today, but I do hope that you all enjoy this one. Even without the nonsense going on in the US, I think it’s important to show love to the ladies in our lives, whether they be family or friends. Please check out all of these artists, they all deserve the attention. I feel like you may know the majority of these ones.

Speaking of showing love, mind if I steal a bit? Social media love that is! The asylum has a page over on Facebook, an account over on Instagram and a Twitter page as well!

As always, have a very crazy day inmates!

Hey there inmates!

How is your day going? Well I hope! I’m having a much better day today, you’ll be happy to hear. A few of you lovely people sent some lovely comments after my poem yesterday. I’m never overly positive about my writing as it is but occasionally I have days where I’m particularly down on my work, and on that occasion I decided to “voice” it. Thank you for all the kind words, it really did mean a lot to me, however small it seemed. Other than that, things have been pretty satisfactory this last week or so. I’ve been getting out more and even got slightly touched by the sun. Summer approaches!

Speaking of approaching, you know what else is? Of course you do! The Harlequins writing music! I still find it rather profound that I’ve inflicted over 130 of these on you wonderful people. You’re rather understanding, aren’t you? Did any of you see todays musical clue? I think it was a less obvious one unless you knew the people in it beforehand.

Todays musical theme is a specific band: Apocalyptica! They are a band from Finland that are quite unique in my opinion. They are technically classed as a symphonic metal band, but unlike the bands I showed the other week in that theme, they tend to stand out. You see, other than a drummer, all of the band members play cellos. You’d think that this may cause them to sound rather homogenous and one-note, but the truth is far from it. I’m always amazed about the different sounds and styles these lads can get out of their instruments. I’m not particularly familiar with the instrument, but it seems rather versatile.

This is augmented by the presence of vocalists from a huge array of different bands that often feature in their songs. To name a handful, Jacoby Shaddix from Papa Roach, Lacey Sturm from Flyleaf and Till Lindemann from Rammstein! Oh yes, also Ville Valo, Corey Taylor and Franky Perez, among quite a few others. This gives the band an unprecedented range of musical landscapes to draw from. I also feel it means this band can appeal to almost anybody. I’m going to attempt to demonstrate this right about now. Are you ready?

Join me as we delve into the musical minds of Apocalyptica!

Apocalyptica – Path

Apocalyptica – Broken Pieces

Apocalyptica – I Don’t Care

Apocalyptica – I’ll Get Through It

Apocalyptica – House Of Chains

Apocalyptica – Bittersweet

And there we have it once again! Oh yes indeed, I did include a sixth song this time. Purely because there are so many songs of this band that I adore that I wanted to share a little bit extra. I really hope that you guys check this band out as they really do deserve the attention, they are so very talented. As always, I’ll include their website just below!

Here you go: https://www.apocalyptica.com/

Speaking of websites, would you kindly visit my social media ones? The asylum has a page over on Facebook you know, there’s also one on Instagram and an account on Twitter as well! Please come follow/like me over on those 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! Thanks for everything!

Until next week, have a very crazy day inmates!

Good day inmates!

What a fine day (and week) it is as well! The sun has been shining and the temperatures have been steadily rising. As I said previously, I even managed to get out on the bike in the last week. I took a lot of photos and videos. Maybe I’ll share some on the asylum pages at some point, the typical social media thing of course. It’s been uplifting as well as inspiring, being out on the roads and sitting in some of the lovely scenery that the island has. You may have got the inkling that a few poems recently came from my escapades out and about. Also, thank you all for the lovely comments and stuff I’ve been getting recently. I really do appreciate it and I feel I don’t acknowledge it enough.

So, it’s the day of the week that we “celebrate” the Harlequins writing music! As always I posted a clue for the theme of todays musical extravaganza earlier on. Did anybody guess it? It wasn’t a hugely intellectually irksome one. I’m sure it was obvious! Haha!

I’ll get on with it. The musical theme for today is country! As in the genre of country music! Now this is a genre that I’ve only really taken a step into in the last few months. Mostly due to one of todays musical choices. It’s always been in the background for me I suppose. Would it be fair to say that traditionally (or at least stereotypically) country music is very much American in nature? That old stereotype of rural Americans having a good ol’ party in a barn. The most famous country stars were certainly Americans, the likes of Johnny Cash or John Denver. It’s a genre that touches on some of the simpler, yet quintessential, parts of normal life. Not just for Americans either. Young love, alcoholism or everyday work, to name a few. Many songs can resonate with people globally. And that is something that I think is great about country music, it’s something that anybody can listen to and glean some nugget of inspiration and joy. They also have some songs that are simply great to have a hootenanny to. I hope I used that word right. Anyway, stop rambling Harley!

So, how about you join me as we delve into the musical minds of country stars the world over!

Johnny Cash – The Man Comes Around

Roy Acuff – Great Speckled Bird
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roy_Acuff

And there we have it! I tried to get a fair variety of artists for this one, as you can see. I mentioned above that one of these artists has gotten me into a bit more country music recently. That would be my first choice, The Brothers Osborne. They’re easily the most ‘modern’ of these artists, but I feel their work still encapsulates the true nature of what country music is and can be. Be sure to check out all of these artists, they definitely all deserve it. I’m sure you’ve heard of a couple though. Haha!

So, allow me to include some social media shilling eh? The asylum here has a page over on Facebook, an account on Instagram and also a page over on Twitter as well. Please consider following me over on those as well, it would really help me out. Also, if you enjoy what I do here at the asylum, please consider supporting me over on the Ko-Fi page as well! Cheers for everything my friends!

Until next week, have a very crazy day inmates!

Hello there inmates!

How is the day finding you all? Well I hope! And what a day it’s been eh? Sunny, beautiful and oddly optimistic. That’s how it’s been here in the south of the UK at least. I’ve even managed to spend a handful of days on the beach this week. Hence yesterdays poem I suppose. Being out and about inspired that, to be sure. I certainly hope it lasts into the coming months. I’m totally bored of winter and frigid weather, as I’ve mentioned in the past. Lots of bike rides in my near future, I assure you. I’m hoping that wherever you guys are in this mad world, you find the weather agreeable.

Speaking of agreeable, we probably ought to have some nice music going eh? Did any of you glimpse todays musical theme clue? Unfortunately it was not a photo taken by yours truly, though I intend to take some more from around the Island in the future. It was a pretty photo though, wasn’t it? Did you get the clue?

Yes, that’s right! Or wrong! Todays musical theme is beaches! Not an overly surprising one given what I was saying above, but there you are. One of those quintessentially “holiday” areas that we all know and maybe love. It conjures up images of family outings and bonfire raves at night. Sitting on a deckchair in front of a serene shoreline. Surfing or bathing in the swell. I’m sure you’ve all got a picture or pictures in your head. Did it also bring some music to your ears? For me it does. The kind of song that speaks calmness or relaxation. Or the other end of the spectrum: a fast-paced party tune. I think beaches inspire both of these in equal measure, for different kinds of people. I’m going to share five songs that I think represent those yellow places of joy and serenity. Let’s get to it!

And there we have it! I almost want to go and sit on the beach right now. That would be quite dumb though, cause it’s coming up to 9PM. But still, we have the vibe for sure. I hope all of you enjoy my choices for this week. There were so incredibly many potential choices for such a broad topic. Check them all out eh? You shan’t be disappointed!

Speaking of disappointment, would you like to follow some disappointing social media sites? The asylum has a page over on Facebook, an account on Instagram and of course a page on Twitter as well! Please give me a follow over on those eh? Also, if you enjoy what I do here at the asylum, please consider supporting me over on the Ko-Fi page as well. Thanks for everything!

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

Good day inmates!

And what a wonderful day it is too! The sun is shining, the sky is blue and I’m not cold for a change. I’ve even managed to get out on the bike a few times since recovering from the great plague. Here’s hoping it lasts and gives us an excellent spring and summer this year. So how are all of you? Navigating the wiles of life pleasantly I hope. The world is a rather unsettling place right now, in all manner of ways. And here I was thinking the asylum was for the mad folks! Haha! Take care eh?

So on to something less insane. Music! Well I guess music can be a bit crazy too but shush you’re ruining my segue. It’s time for the Harlequins writing music! Did anybody see todays theme clue? I was a bit unsure on it to be honest. But I suppose that’s the given with clues. They’re not necessarily meant to be solved easily. I digress.

So, todays theme. What could it be you ask? Well, don’t rush me and I’ll tell you! Todays musical theme is symphonic metal! Well, its a genre many of you have heard of I hope. I know when some of you hear the word metal, a certain image is conjured in your minds. Some very angsty long-haired men punishing their instruments and vocal chords on stage. But I would argue symphonic metal is incredibly different to that. The name may give you a clue. Symphonic metal has more roots in a kind of orchestral sound mixed with metal instrumentation. Traditionally the bands of this genre tend to be female-fronted as well. Indeed some symphonic metal vocalists are actually trained opera singers or use a rather operatic style. The likes of Tarja Turunen or Dianne Van Giersbergen for example. This creates a very heavy emotional and deep sound for these bands, sort of like a movie soundtrack actually. I hope that I’ve sold some of you guys on todays theme, though I have no idea if I’ve described it all that tacitly. Want to hear some of it so you can make your minds up?

Well, join me as we delve into the musical minds of symphonic metal artists the world over!

Tarja – I Walk Alone

And there we have it! How about those wonderful singers? I almost feel like going to an opera. Not really, but you get the idea. There were so many artists that I could have chosen, but I settled on these. I sort of wanted to include Nightwish (another band worth checking) but I did include my personal favourite thing about them. Tarja Turenen, to be clear.

Speaking of favourite things, may I be one of yours? I’m joking of course, but would you mind having me in your thoughts? The asylum has a page over on Facebook, an account on Instagram and also a page on Twitter as well! Come follow me!

Until next week, have a very crazy day inmates!

Good day inmates!

I’m finally cured of the great plague! By cured I mean it simply has finally passed. The inconvenience is finally over! I’m allowed out without the potential concern of harming the infirm! Can you tell that I’m happy about it? I most certainly am. I was beginning to get bored of these four walls, which is ironic since I’m absolutely fine with that when it’s optional. I digress. So how are all of you? Having a nice week so far? I certainly hope so!

So it’s time for the Harlequins writing music! That’s much more interesting! I may be biased and I don’t care. Music makes everything better and I challenge anybody to argue with that point. I don’t really, but I wanted to sound cool. Did anybody see todays theme clue? It was one that I said before that I would likely revisit as it’s a rather interesting theme in my eyes.

And that theme is, once again, the black community! I don’t believe the impact of black and brown artists can be overstated. I’m not sure what I can say that I didn’t in my previous writing music post on this theme. Some of the worlds finest musical artists were people of colour. I mentioned a few last time, but how about a few more? James Brown to Bob Marley. Tupac Shakur to Usher. Prince to even Beyonce. I’m sure you guys could think of so many more as well. It’s true that not everyone will enjoy the genres of these artists, but I bet you still know some of their music. I can’t stand Beyonce or Jay-Z for example, but I could still recognise some of their songs. I think that illustrates the impressive reach and influence of the black community on the musical stage. Now, I’m going to share five black artists that I think you might enjoy. No Beyonce or Kanye in sight though, I assure you. Honest.

Please join me once again as we delve into the musical minds of black artists the world over!

And there we have it! Quite a mix of genres once again eh? I could have easily made an even bigger list, but we’d be here all day. Who knows? Maybe I’ll do another one on this theme one day. I hope you check out all of these artists anyways, they all deserve it. I think you may know a couple of them anyways. Show them love anyways!

Speaking of showing love, would you kindly show me some? In social media form that is! The asylum has a page over on Facebook you know, also an account on Instagram and a page over on Twitter as well. I share random rubbish on those, as well as clues for my poems a few hours ahead of time. It’s fun I swear! Also, if you enjoy what I do here at the asylum, please consider supporting me over on the Ko-Fi page as well. Cheers for everything!

Until next week, have a very crazy day inmates.

Hello there inmates!

How is everyone doing this week? Keeping safe and sound I hope. Getting over all of the silly Will Smith memes? I’m rather bored of the whole thing myself, but I know people are making the most of the comedic value. I’ve had a rather bad week myself I’m afraid. As well as a few more personal negative events, I found out yesterday morning that I’ve finally fallen victim to the great plague. It’s rather inconvenient as my plans for the week have been torpedoed but I’m surviving, don’t worry. I’m not going to let COVID defeat me.

So, on to more happy pastures now. It’s time for the Harlequins writing music! There have been a few new inmates reading in the last week or so, particularly on the Facebook page, so for their benefit I’ll briefly explain this segment. Every Wednesday I like to share five musical artists, tied by a particular theme, that I enjoy listening to while I write my poetry. I find music excellent for relaxation and inspiration both. My thinking was that it would help all of you other beautiful artists out there, if even only a tiny bit.

So, did anybody see the clue for the theme I posted earlier on today on my social media handles? Well, the musical theme for today is Scandinavia! Oh yes! A part of the world that I have not yet had the pleasure of visiting, though it’s definitely on the list. I realise of course that Scandinavia is in fact 5 different nations. In no particular order: Sweden, Iceland, Denmark, Norway and Finland. The great north, as I like to say.

These nations are among the happiest places to live in the world from what I heard. There are entire musical genres that originated in one or several of these countries. The ones that come to mind are usually more in the alternative scene. Black metal, death metal and the like. These genres obviously have existed in other parts of the world, but when I think of them I picture a big badass Nordic bloke in a Viking outfit. Is that just me? There are obviously artists of every shade in this part of the world, in fact one of my favourite bands is from Sweden and they’re certainly not death metal. How about an artists per northern nation eh? I think I can do that!

Join me as we delve into the musical minds of Scandinavian artists the north over!

Volbeat – Heaven Nor Hell

HIM – Killing Loneliness
http://www.himmania.com/

A-Ha – Take On Me
https://a-ha.com/

Amon Amarth – Shield Wall
https://www.amonamarth.com/

And there we have it! I almost feel like drinking out of a horn after all of that. So that’s one artist from each Scandinavian country. I’ll let you work out which is which! I do hope that you check out all of these artists anyway, they all deserve the attention. There were so many other bands I could of chosen, particularly from Finland and Sweden. I decided not to include my favourite band this time. Maybe another time. Hehe!

So, time to go through my usual social media spiel! The asylum has a media presence on Facebook, an account on Instagram and a page on Twitter as well! Come and follow me over on those, it would mean a great deal! 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!

Until next week, have a very crazy day inmates!

Hello there inmates!

So here we are once again! How are you doing this week? I hope you’re all keeping those creative minds ticking along nicely. The world needs artists now more than ever I fear. It’s been a fairly pleasant week here at the asylum with only a few hiccups, it’s beginning to feel a bit more like spring finally. I was getting rather sick of winter, I can tell you that! Here’s hoping the rest of the week will remain warmer. Ahh also, it’s mothers day this weekend I believe. Thanks for reminding me! Haha!

So, we need some music today don’t we? It’s the law here at the asylum after all. Not really, but it sounded true didn’t it? So, did anybody see the clue for todays musical theme earlier on today? Instagram was being a real pain in posting it for some reason. The other platforms had no issue. So that was weird. Did anybody guess it?

Well guess no more! The musical theme for this week is affection! I thought I’d so something of a nice positive theme this week. Affection can be a fairly broad topic. We can be affectionate of our friends, family and paramours. It’s not just about romance. It’s camaraderie and it’s partnership. It’s the glue that holds friends together. Platonic love, erotic love and well… family love? It’s a quintessential part of the human experience. As such, it’s no surprise that many artists have written on the subject. It doesn’t have to be purely the romantic genre, as I have outlined. It’s a subject that transcends genre in my opinion and so you can find it in any area of music. Want to hear my picks for this week? Go oooooon.

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

And there we have it! Does anybody else have a nice warm and fuzzy feeling in their gut? There’s some nice songs there eh? Do they remind you of somebody that you’re affectionate of? I certainly hope so. I also hope that you check out all of these artists as they all deserve the attention.

Speaking of attention, mind bestowing me with yours? Or rather bestowing my social media pages with your attention? The asylum has a Facebook page, an account on Instagram and a page over on Twitter as well. It’d be really swell if you would give me a follow or like on those sites as well.

Until next week, have a very crazy day!

Hello there inmates!

March is indeed marching on isn’t it? Quite a lot faster than I would have preferred I must admit. How are you all finding it? Good I hope. I’m doing quite well myself. It’s been an uneventful week so far to be honest. I’ve been pretty happy with the responses I’ve been getting to the recent poems. You beautiful people are far too kind! I’m humbled as ever.

So, did anybody get todays musical theme clue? I posted it a bit later than intended today. I may or may not have napped for longer than I ought to have. I thought it was a clever clue, though I’m clearly biased. Haha!

Todays musical theme is kind of a strange one. It’s Playstation. In particular, the “vintage” games of the PSone. As some of you may be aware, I’m an avid gamer and nerd. It’s my primary form of relaxation and escapism. It’s also inspired some of the poems and drawings I’ve created in the past. Though the original Playstation wasn’t my introduction to gaming (the Sega Megadrive can claim that honour), it is probably the console I played the absolute most. It influenced the genres of video game that I fell in love with in years to come and still has some of my favourite games of all time in its catalogue.

So, I figure that some of you may sigh at this theme. “Not videogames Harley! Why u do dis!?”. But I would argue that the musical talent involved in many of these games, particularly ones from Japan, are really quite profound. They had to be, they didn’t necessarily have the graphical fidelity to hold the game up on that merit. I’d not be embarrassed to listen to many of this music in public, same as any band I enjoy. I can’t quite settle on a particular musical genre in the music today, as it depends heavily on the atmosphere and setting of the games it features in. So, let’s see what I can come up with eh? I’m going to display today five of my most memorable tunes from the original era of the Playstation.

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

Nathan McCree – Tomb Raider Main Theme
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nathan_McCree

Nobuo Uematsu – Tifas Theme
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nobuo_Uematsu

Remi Gazel – Harmony
https://www.imdb.com/name/nm10723250/

Tappi Iwase – Metal Gear Solid Main Theme
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tappi_Iwase

Hiroki Kikuta – Incantation
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hiroki_Kikuta

And there we have it! Some serious nostalgia there, at least for me! Particular mention goes to Nobuo Uematsu, the composer of the majority of Final Fantasy titles (like the one above). He is my absolute favourite composer of all time and his musical output over the years has been superb in my eyes. I would seriously say it would be worth checking out these soundtracks even if you’re not into gaming. They really will surprise you I think.

As for surprises, this next bit isn’t one. I have some social media pages for the blog that would be greatly improved by your attention! The asylum has a page over on Facebook, an account on Instagram and a page over on Twitter as well! Also, if you really enjoy the nonsense here at the asylum, please consider supporting me over on the Ko-Fi page as well. Thank you for everything!

Until next week, have a very crazy day inmates!
