A pause to talk about the OWC melody. - post author 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

If that doesn’t get a filthy, gibbering lunatic priest some anthropromorphic quasi-amphibean lovin’, nothing will.
