Do you (yes, YOU!) know about the impending awesomeness that is to go on tour in 2017?
Cuz I do, and now I’m going to tell you all about it!
In 2017, North America is going to be serenaded with a concert tour that, to sum it up in just one word, looks to be “EPIC”.
If you love the HBO series “Game of Thrones” (and the wonderful musical score that accompanies all the crazy shenanigans going on in it) well, you’re probably not going to want to miss this.
Live Nation is quoted as describing the tour as a “music and visual experience that will bring the Seven Kingdoms to life on a scale never seen before.”
Imagine the music that provides such a rich atmosphere to the show being performed by a full orchestra and choir in huge stone towers with a giant LED screen between them to awe you visually while you’re being awed aurally.
No, don’t even bother imagining it, here ya go:
Tickets go on sale today. Be there or be square. (I’m hoping to be there!)
Cue the music. Ice Cube was right. It was a good day. 😛
Got some really important things done today, had a lovely little brunch with my best friend, and now the weekend is finally here. TGIF.
Sitting in one spot for hours at a time, staring at your computer screen or pad of paper, and trying to put thoughts into actual words can be a maddening process. Though what’s life without a little madness from time to time? 😉
Sometimes it can be pretty hard to remain focused. One thing that seems to help me, is having some sort of music in the background while I’m working. Usually (though not always) something of a more instrumental variety. Oftentimes, this might mean the soundtrack to a particular video game. I think going with instrumental music usually works best for me because I get less distracted by a singer’s lyrics and can focus more on the overall mood of the music as I write.
Today I’m all about the OST (Original Sound Track) for a game called The Binding of Isaac. It’s a fun and challenging game with great music and a creepy and oftentimes flat-out disturbing mood to it. The OST for the game definitely reflects this. Created by electronic music producer, Danny Baranowsky, the game’s music somehow manages to be both calming and motivating to me when I write. It’s helped me chisel away at writer’s block on multiple occasions and it’s definitely in my arsenal of go-to playlists for when I need something to keep me on track and working.
I find it interesting all the different methods and tools people use to stay focused and keep working when they are creating things, be it stories, art, or whatever it is they might be constructing. Whatever helps a person pry their seedling of a concept from the depths of their mind and put it onto paper or some other medium of the creator’s choosing. Caffeine and music seem to be two very ideal components of the equation for me. What works for you?
