    Your Personal Theme Song

    Post by skarekrow13 on Wed Oct 10, 2012 1:57 pm

    Anyone who's been following the Jukebox thread here will have undoubtedly seen Bunny's question about our own personal theme song. The one song that captures who we feel we are.

    I'll start.

    Here's mine, please listen while reading to the explanation. Gotta set the atmosphere....



    I used to use a few different songs in my pro wrestling days and they all try to capture the persona you're shooting for. I eventually settled on this song when I realized my persona was really going to just be my martial arts self. How does this song capture that? From an emotional standpoint, this song does two things absolutely beautifully despite the paradox. Firstly, it projects calm. Second, anxiety. To me it seems that the song intends to lull you to acquiesce while hiding a deep ability for destruction.

    How does that relate to me? In martial arts there is often a tendency to relate to a totem/animal/idea and use that to grow stronger. Living in a windswept, often cold region my martial arts concept is that of winter/cold/ice. I may not seem like I'm doing much actively to fight you, but trust me, I'm working my way in to chill your bones. Apart form martial arts, despite being a bit of a wiseacre here, I'm mostly quiet in person, choosing to listen.

    To up the ante for wrasslin' I spliced in this quote. I altered the volume, put it in at random spaces and generally just made it creepy as all hell over the background music.

    I have way too many songs I like to even consider a theme song.



    Edit: Acutally...I think I got one.

    It sure is hard to find a 'theme song', however, i do believe this song describes me for one reason and one reason only.

    This song kind of reminds me of space, don't ask why(and no, it has nothing to do with the actual picture). And songs that remind me of space always makes me smile, and i'm not even a sci-fi kind of dude. Anyhow, i kind of feel like the idea of a planet describes me, and i can somehow relate to it. But that's as much as i would like to share, as otherwise it would only get kind of personal and far too depressing, and we don't want that to happen, now do we? tongue

    It's strange, songs like those with echoing sounds used to make me think of space, but nowadays I always go straight to the night sky from a field of tall grass. I don't even have any idea why.

    For some reason what you just described reminds me of space as well...

    I'll blame the Halo 3 trailer for that.

    Never seen it myself. I'd probably blame a view I had once up in the Yorkshire Dales, as you could see the full moon from the top of a valley, and it looked absolutely amazing as it lit up the fields of grass.

    It was a damn fine sight I will admit. The air was even warm surprisingly, so we didn't even chill big grin

    This may test attention spans, if that's the case skip to 7:20 and finish out the last two minutes. I love Alex Grey's art and he directed those final two minutes.

    Did I do this right? Ah well, this is my bad mood theme, but I'm always in a slightly good mood so it's not heavy metal or anything silly

    Also, I really love that picture!
