A pause to talk about the OWC melody. - posted by Don

The OWC melody – some background on the music.

While you are waiting for me to stop mindless postings and get to work on getting the OWC scripts up, I thought I’d share some background on the melody that was provided by Norm Sherman of The Drabblecast. The melody provided for the OWC (which you can listen to here) came from Norm’s recent song The Heartache Over Innsmouth, written in honor of H. P. Lovecraft’s 119th birthday.

H.P. Lovecraft (in addition to being the patron saint of The Drabblecast) was an author of weird fiction stories in the early part of the 20th century on planet Earth. One of his most famous works is The Call of Cthulhu.

The song, known as a Bbardle, was commissioned by Tom Baker of Steradian Technologies (which makes guns for kids…). Also, if you make a generous donation to The Drabblecast, Norm will write a song for you.

Below is the music video of Heartache Over Innsmouth. The song makes much more sense if you are familiar with Lovecraft’s story The Shadow over Innsmouth. – Don

Unproduced Scripts - posted by Don

While everyone is busily scratching their collective heads of the One Week Challenge, I’ve gotten up over on the Unproduced Scripts page 44 original works.

One not-randomly-selected script is James’ Never Leave. This is apropos of the One Week Challenge because lyrics to a song are incorported into the script. This is not to say that in the One Week Challenge, a character has to sing the song, but if the character did, here is an example of how one writer pulled it off.

Never Leave – Twenty-five years after the myterious overdose of a famous musician Gemini hughes, Vic Samuels and his band, Broken Innocence, begin to cover the hit, “Never Leave.” While performing the cover, Vic begins to experience debilitating dark visions. Visions that lead him to a music mogel with something to hide and the broken daughter of a dead rocker. These unlikely hereos, Vic and Kitty Hughes, find themselves caught between the real dangers of a powerful mogel and the surreal of the supernatural song. A song that desires justice from the grave. 105 pages pdf format

You can check that out and more on the Unproduced Scripts page. – Don
