The Day The Music Died – The Climb #236

Thursday 14th September 2017 I listen to a lot of music while I work.  My day job gives me Spotify Premium that whilst being reluctant to use at first (I prefer to ‘own’ my media) is now always playing, either on my computer at home, or on my phone. I’m not as much an audiophile [...]

Quartermaster For the Zombie Apocalypse – The Climb #60

Wednesday 22nd March 2017 It’s been a long old day, most of which has been spent shifting  a large quantity of swords around. This morning was spent editing the last edition of The Climb as well as making plans for the day. I mentioned yesterday that I wanted to put my driving time to good use, [...]

King of Headphones – The Climb #48

Friday 10th March 2017 Today I am evidence that lightning does strike twice. You may remember, last week, my incredible bargain of picking up a brand new pair of Beats headphones for just £30.   I’d thought at the time there must be some mistake but bought them anyway because I could afford to lose £30.  [...]

Today’s Earworm I discovered this last night after hearing part of the soundtrack on Top Gear and not recognising it (I am a serious soundtrack nut). Reckon I'll be picking up the soundtrack in the next couple of days as I'm really, really impressed by it. But it's this track in particular that's been constantly replayed. [...]

The Four Realms Soundtrack – Maureen’s Theme I listen to a lot of music when I write, the vast majority of it instrumental. Over the years of writing The Four Realms I have several go-to tracks if I need to envoke character. This track from Dr Who has made me think of Maureen since I first heard it, and I still [...]

The Rains of Castamere

I've currently got the music from the second series of Game of Thrones on repeat. The album came out this week and is the perfect accompaniment to one of my writing projects. There's a lot of good tracks on the album (although if I'm honest I don't think it is as a strong as the [...]

Two Steps From Hell – Magika

This week is a bit busy with starting a new day job. However, I did want to share this piece of music with you. As you know, I'm a huge Two Steps From Hell fan, and if you love orchestral soundtracks, their albums are some of the best released in recent years. Hard to think [...]
