This One Is For You Horror Writers

tumblr_mqtuycEdTl1sdqk10o1_500

Because I am still in the Halloween spirit, I decided to create a playlist for the occasion. On Spotify you will find The Macabre Playlist which features songs to inspire horror writers and horror fans alike. I will be updating this playlist periodically as well, so you will always have something new to listen to. Here’s the link:

  • As a side note: My username is Webbgirl88 on Spotify. If (for whatever reason) the link is broken, I thought knowing my username would help in you quest to jam out. =)

Oliver Boyd and the Rememberalls

~ I recently stumbled upon another Harry Potter inspired band: Oliver Boyd and the Rememberalls. Their music is at times touching as well as carefree. I especially liked their song “Open At the Close.” If any of you are die hard Harry Potter fans or just like interesting music then check out the last.fm website. The site itself has all their music, YouTube fan videos for their songs, and info about Oliver Boyd.

Also, the lyrics to “Open At the Close”: 

I’ve figured out all the pieces and
It now makes sense to me.
My future has been set in stone,
And this end must come.
For this must be done.
I cannot let them die in vain.
They fought by my side
And fell with their pride.
One a brother, lived with all his wit.
Another taught me life, and how to deal with it.

So I’ll walk it alone and face this truth.
Mum, I’m coming home, home to you.
No goodbyes this time, and no kisses too.
Ginny, please don’t you cry.
Know I’ll always love you.

Memories run though my mind
And it’s comforting to me.
This is it, there’s no more to say.
Just a waiting game as he takes his aim.

So I’ll walk this alone and face this truth.
Mum, I’m coming home, home to you.
No goodbyes this time, and no kisses too.
Ginny, please don’t you cry.
Know I’ll always love you.

So I’ll walk it alone and face this truth.
Mum, I’m coming home, home to you.
No goodbyes this time, and no kisses too.
Ginny, please don’t you cry.
Know I’ll always love you.

No Hero Music Mix

imageimage

 

(Via maxkirin)

[NO HERO] is a writing mix about action, explosions, and a double-barreled shotgun named Justice. Welcome to Dangertown, USA. Nobody is a saint, everyone has vices, and you are NO HERO.

This playlist contains 17 of my favorite tracks for writing danger, action scenes, and Anti-Heroes. This mix is not out to be your friend. It will toss you into the back seat of its car and take you into a town full of drugs, sex, and danger. Your initiation begins with a chase scene, a couple dozen casualties, and a gorgeous double-barreled shotgun who just became your best friend. From there you are on a ride of violence, destruction, and revenge, as you murder your way towards city hall— where the biggest asshole of Dangertown awaits. Of course, it’s all fun and games until the Mayor starts the nuke countdown.

Let’s hope you don’t run out of bullets.
