    I'm going to start this new thread up, concerning music and music videos. Writing, reading tons of activities are made better with music. Got a playlist you adore? Something you use to write? Why not set down and do a bit of sharing.

    I've been a big fan of music videos for years. There's a large number of people who use Anime and Games to make their own music videos. These usually have the identifying tag of AMV and GMV respectively. Youtube has a large supply of these, and I recommend a nice look around.

    So, I'm going to share a nice video link, which, I have no idea how this is going to place it...This is for the Anime Overlord. It's the opening theme music, in English.

    Almost forgot to give proper credit, this is done by:

    And now, Attack on Titans opening theme Guren no Yumiya, an opening theme which has become almost iconic. This a version which is an English cover, performed by Jonathan Young. As a note, if you have Spotify, he has music available there.

    I love Spotify and use their service heavy enough to wear a groove in our internet connection. I can surround myself with music almost constantly, which is nice because it drowns out the ringing in my ears that I have ever since I was in a band.

    I listened to pretty much nothing but this while writing Goblin.



    For Human, I've been listening to Hobbit soundtracks one and three.

    I posted on Facebook once how it would be cool to have a program that dynamically did orchestral music depending on the words you were writing at the time. As the pace of the novel picked up, the music would pick up to follow, getting you into it even more as the writer. Kinda like the soundtrack to Total Annihilation. (More on that in an upcoming blog post about TA and Spring...)

    Anyway, I look forward to seeing other contributions to this thread.

    For that kind of usage, I usually put on one of several Epic Music playlists on Spotify. Then other times it will be my mixture of Metal tracks... grab bag of whatever caught my fancy. Marilyn Manson, Sonata Arctica, Nightwish, Sabaton, Metallica, Lacuna Coil, Kamelot or Hollywood Undead just to name a few, whatever floats my cookies at the moment.

    Other times it just calls for Brat Pack, with Sammy, Dean Martin or Sinatra. Don't bother me when I'm listening to Dean Martin. Somebody bothered me once. Just Once.

    I've got a varied taste in music.

    I've been a little miffed. Spotify took out the playlist function in the Roku app, so, I've put in an order for a new soundbar for our TV, one that has better sound quality and Bluetooth. I need good sound quality. Bad sound quality is one of those things that can drive me to insanity.

    Here's another nice track, for those who say that LitRPG can't have romance.

    MikeTheAnimeRunnerX2 youtube channel. This is the closing song for the second season of Log Horizon Wonderful Wonder World...in English.

    It's hard to say with that. When they did season two, Mamare Touno hadn't really had anything other than the Gold of the Kunie story stuff writ, everything else was kind of extrapolated as best they could. Throw on top of it the tax-evasion conviction, and the fact that he is a bit of a critic of the system of socialism and market control the Japanese government performs, there might be a bit of resistance to a third season. He finally has writ enough really just to cover the second season, but, it's only on the web and hasn't been published yet. Wouldn't be too surprised if the publishing/anime Zaibatsu has blacklisted him.

    So, that being said, in the theme of Log Horizon, from the Youtube channel of Shadels (Shadowlink4321), we have the opening theme to Log Horizon "Database" covered in English.

    Today, I've decided to wander out to the realm of the odd...

    This is Space Oddity by David Bowie, covered by the sad clown with a golden voice, Puddles Pity Party.

    I'm just saying.. when the wife and kids leave the house at 630 am and you got Bugatti blasting, not even 2 cups of coffee in and you got the lyrics pulled up on google and can keep up.... you get crunk for writing time.
