D.D.W.M The arts topic!

Postby Foxesrule » Mon Apr 29, 2013 10:56 am

D-drama D-drawing W-Writing M-Music

This is a topic to discuss and share art!
Not just drawing, though!
Share your favourite songs, post your drawings, write a story, yes, aslong as it's to do with art, it belongs here.

Here is my favourite song. I prefer the lyrics to the actual singing, though. Personally.

White Mountain by Genesis. (Link to the song!)

Thin hung the web like a trap in a cage,
The fox lay asleep in his lair.
Fang's frantic paws told the tale of his sin,
Far off the chase shrieked revenge.
Outcast he trespassed where no wolf may tread,
The last sacred haunt of the dead.
He learnt of a truth which only one wolf may know,
The sceptre and crown of a king.
Howling for blood, One-eye leads on the pack,
Plunging through forest and snowstorm.

Steep rose the ridge, ghostly peaks climbed the sky,
Fang sped through jungles of ice.
Hard on his tail, One-eye drew from the pack -
An old hero conquered by none.
Steep, far too steep, grew the pathway ahead,
Descent was the only escape.
A wolf never flees in the face of his foe,
Fang knew the price he would pay -
One-eye stood before him
With the crown upon his head,
Sceptre raised to deal the deadly blow.

Fang, son of Great Fang, the traitor we seek,
The laws of the brethren say this:
That only the king sees the crown of the gods,
And he, the usurper, must die.
Snarling he tore at the throat of his foe,
But Fang fought the hero in vain.
Dawn saw the white mountain tinted with red -
Never would the crown leave again.
One-eye his the crown and with laurels on his head
Returned amongst the tribe and dwelt in peace.

(We can share the same categories that we've created ourselves, yes?
I'm thinking about posting a chapter or so of my story, but I'll either have to warn about the cursing or somehow find other words to block them. With this one character, it's really hard not to use such language.)

Rameses B - Pegasus
( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X_LpyAcN3ns )
If I were to guess correctly I might call this Chill Dubstep. I don't know, it's just a very uplifting song. Very nice tone to it, nice voice, I love it.

Here are some songs I really find amazing.

Michael McLean - Safe Harbors
There are refugees among us
That are not from foreign shores;
And the battles they are waging
Are from very private wars.
And there are no correspondents
Documenting all their grief,
But these refugees among us all
Are yearning for relief.

There are refugees among us.
They don't carry flags or signs.
They are standing right beside us
In the market check out lines;
And the war they've been fighting
It will not be televised,
But the story of their need for love
Is written in their eyes.

This is a call to arms,
To reach out and to hold
The evacuees from the dark.
This is a call to arms,
To lead anguished souls
To safe harbors of the heart.

Can you see through their disguises?
Can you hear what words won't tell?
Some are losing faith in Heaven
'Cause their life's a living diva.
Is there anyone to help those
Who have no where else to flee?
For the only arms protecting them
belong to you and me.

This is a call to arms,
To reach out and to hold
The evacuees from the dark.
This is a call to arms,
To lead anguished souls
To safe harbors of the heart.
Can you feel the pleas of the refugees
For safe harbors of the heart?

This is a call to arms,
To reach out and to hold
The evacuees from the dark.
This is a call to arms,
To lead anguished souls
To safe harbors of the heart.
Can you feel the pleas of the refugees
For safe harbors of the heart?


JOHNNY CASH -Wayfaring stanger
I'm just a poor wayfarin' stranger,
While travelin' through this world below.
Yet there's no sickness, no toil, nor danger,
In that bright land to which I go.
I'm goin' there to see my Father.
And all my loved ones who've gone on.
I'm just goin' over Jordan.
I'm just goin' over home.

[Instrumental break]

I know dark clouds will gather 'round me,
I know my way is hard and steep.
But beauteous fields arise before me,
Where Gods redeemed, their vigils keep.
I'm goin' there to see my Mother.
She said she'd meet me when I come.
So, I'm just goin' over Jordan.
I'm just goin' over home.

I'm just goin' over Jordan.
I'm just goin' over home.







Also just wondering but is photograpghy inlcuded in this or is it just Drama, Drawing,Writing,and Music?



Speaking of writing I have been slowly working on a story. It is a sci-fi story. The only writing I've done is a brief summary.


There was an eerie silence as people stood gazing upon the earth. A monstrous black object approaching. As if some sort of giant vacuum, they could hear a sucking sound as the atmosphere was getting blown off. Then the earth was instantaneously shattered and sucked into the massive black object. Leaving behind everything they once knew the three starships flew onward never to return to earth again. 80 years later Alpha Centauri, Kepler 62, Kepler 69, and Gliese 581 were colonized. By the year 2300 a total of 30 stars were colonized. In 2312 Humans joined the ranks of the Milky Way and became a part of the U.G.R. Also known as the United Galactic Republic. Now in the year 2342 an old threat emerges from the darkness. The Lacertion Empire from the Andromeda galaxy has invaded the Milky Way. After the destruction of the Anthropian planet Jala the U.G.R. is at war and so the first time humans will play a role in the carving of galactic history along with their allies.

oh and yes for this randomly made up sci-fi story I plan to use real stars and planets for most of if not all the star systems included.

Here is a really good song.


Eli Young Band-Even If It Breaks Your Heart


Way back on the radio dial,
The fire got lit inside a bright-eyed child.
Every note just wrapped around his soul,
From steel guitars to Memphis, all the way to rock and roll.

Ohhh, I can hear 'em playin'.
I can hear the ringin' of a beat up ol' guitar.
Ohhh, I can hear 'em singin',
"Keep on dreamin', even if it breaks your heart."

Downtown is where I used to wander.
Old enough to get there but too young to get inside.
So I would stand out on the sidewalk,
Listen to the music playin' every Friday night.

Ohhh, I can hear 'em playin'.
I can hear the ringin' of a beat up ol' guitar.
Ohhh, I can hear 'em singin',
"Keep on dreamin', even if it breaks your heart."

Some dreams stay with you forever,
Drag you around but bring you back to where you were.
Some dreams keep on gettin' better,
Gotta keep believin' if you wanna know for sure.

Ohhh, I can hear 'em playin'.
I can hear the ringin' of a beat up ol' guitar.
Ohhh, I can hear 'em singin',
"Keep on dreamin', even if it breaks your heart."

Keep on dreamin', even if it breaks your heart.

Keep on dreamin'

Don't let it break your heart.

This is my new favourite song!

Killer Queen by Queen.

She keeps Moet et Chandon
In her pretty cabinet
'Let them eat cake' she says
Just like Marie Antoinette
A built-in remedy
For Kruschev and Kennedy
At anytime an invitation
You can't decline

Caviar and cigarettes
Well versed in etiquette
Extraordinarily nice

She's a Killer Queen
Gunpowder, gelatine
Dynamite with a laser beam
Guaranteed to blow your mind
Anytime

Recommended at the price
Insatiable an appetite
Wanna try?

To avoid complications
She never kept the same address
In conversation
She spoke just like a baroness
Met a man from China
Went down to Geisha Minah
Then again incidentally
If you're that way inclined

Perfume came naturally from Paris
For cars she couldn't care less
Fastidious and precise

She's a Killer Queen
Gunpowder, gelatine
Dynamite with a laser beam
Guaranteed to blow your mind
Anytime

Drop of a hat she's as willing as
Playful as a pussy cat
Then momentarily out of action
Temporarily out of gas
To absolutely drive you wild, wild.
She's all out to get you

She's a Killer Queen
Gunpowder, gelatine
Dynamite with a laser beam
Guaranteed to blow your mind
Anytime

Recommended at the price
Insatiable an appetite
Wanna try?
You wanna try...

This is my favorite song, it's Japanese.. so, yeah. I guess I'll put it in English lyrics.

You're the queen, and I'm your servant.
We're a pitiable pair of twins separated by our fate.
I'm willing to become evil for you,
if only so that I could protect you.

We were born into the world carrying others' expectations,
and blessed by the sound of the church's bells.
By the adults' own convenient arrangement,
our future was split into two.

Even if the entire world
should become your enemy,
I will always protect you,
so you just be there, smiling and laughing.

You're the queen, and I'm your servant.
We're a pitiable pair of twins separated by our fate.
I'm willing to become evil for you,
if only so that I could protect you.

When I went out to our neighboring nation,
I saw a girl of green in a town.
Because of her gentle voice and tender smile,
I fell in love with her at first sight.

However, your highness the queen wish
the girl be erased from the world,
so I shall fulfill your wish.
But just why do my tears keep falling?

You're the queen, and I'm your servant.
We're a maniacal pair of twins separated by our fate.
"Today's snack will be brioche."
You happily smile, with such innocence.

Very soon this kingdom will end
at the hands of the enraged people.
If this is what they call "retribution",
then let me take upon myself to defy it.

"Here, I'll lend you my clothes."
"Wear them and immediately start escaping."
"It's fine. We're twins after all."
"Nobody will be able to tell the difference."

I'm now the queen, and you're the fugitive.
We're a lamentable pair of twins separated by our fate.
If they must call you evil,
then, alas, I am too, for we share the same blood.

Once upon a time,
there was a queen, my cute sibling,
who used to reign at the top
of a savage and ruthless kingdom.

Even if the entire world (Finally, the time has come,)
should become your enemy, (as the bell's sound signals the end.)
I will always protect you, (Not even bothering to look at the crowd)
so you just be happy somewhere else. (you utter my favorite phrase.)

You're the queen, and I'm your servant.
We're a pitiable pair of twins separated by our fate.
I'm willing to become evil for you,
if only so that I could protect you.

If we could be reborn in our next life,
then please play with me again.

I am strong, because I've been weak.
I am fearless, because I've been afraid.
I am wise, because I've been foolish.
