The 1st illustration for my upcoming lyric book is here.

A funny detail that some forget is that whenever you see a public person there are usually other people who are part of the package as well.
A professional artist or musician doesn’t just materialise out of thin air without inspiration or guidance.
Likewise an online influencer who is pushing some sort of product is probably doing so due to brand deals, endorsement deals or could be creating positive, un-paid for propaganda content in the hopes of landing a sponsorship deal.
There is always more than what meets the eye.
My reason for writing this tonight is that I’m currently compiling a couple of new blog books. The entries have been published on the internet anyway so I see no wrong in transforming them into books and putting them up for sale. In fact that will probably look way more orderly, especially with explanatory introductions, etc;
I have already one blog book under my belt with entries written in 2015 & 2016, and there is way more to come.
By simply looking at my fist year of keeping a blog there are four categories that present themselves:
It is a good idea to get some sort of an overview as a blogger. In total I’ve written over 624 WordPress entries, a great deal of them with a 10k + word count, some have been deleted since I thought of them as silly or pointless. In addition to that I write by hand all of the time + that I’m a songwriter and constantly find myself in a creative process.
I’m currently playing with the idea of shutting down my blog next year or at least radically change it, since I have other things that I would like to prioritize time wise. This has been my hobby ever since 2015 and I’m not quite sure which label would be the most accurate one: habit or “online addiction.”
My first brush with opinion pieces was back when I was 17 years old and had to have a guitar break. My most productive blog year was 2017 when I was ill and down for the count. So I always turn to writing if I’m not doing well health wise + that it is a very accessible medium since no recording studio or art supplies are needed.
I’ve run a bit out of steam this year when it comes to “The Daily Walk” which I also did at the age of 18 when I was co-running a political zine. At a certain point I just flagged out and didn’t follow the news for 7-8 years.
Being a creative artist is a bit more fulfilling and interesting to me than commenting on destructive people starting wars and ruining the planet.
I will organise everything that I’ve written here on WordPress so far and then I’ll see where I’ll go from there. Whenever I start a chapter I also enjoy concluding it.
I’m a bit more excited by the idea of making more picture books for children & a new illustrated lyric book for my latest album! That will mean more art & less words!
I’m happy to announce that I’ll be Tom Service’s guest on the 31st this month discussing “Anger In Music” and playing some live music.
This is part of a festival called “Free Thinking” arranged by BBC3.
It is possible to join us! Get your FREE tickets right here: Anger In Music
I’m looking forward to it!
Make sure that you check out my previous interview with Tom Service right here: Here I Am, On BBC3!
I’ve gone back to recording and playing. I’m currently working on “Berit-Vol.2” and feel way more energised this year than what I did when I first started working on “Berit-Vol.1” If you want to follow and support the making of my new album then please go here: Please support my music! It is also possible to support my creativity via PayPal., and get the same rewards as a Patron.
I’ve already written several new pieces of music this year that has nothing to do with the “Berit” series, I’ve also gone back to proper practising and have picked up the creative pieces from before I got sick.
Back in 2016 it appears that I had made it my mission to complete the lyrics and concepts for my unreleased metal music, in addition to this I find myself overwhelmed by an abundance of audio notes, written notes, etc; featuring song ideas, lyric ideas, book ideas, character ideas, you name it.
I feel very strongly that I need to sort out as much of this as possible, in addition to this I have lots of ideas churning in the back of my mind in regards to relevant/timely blog entries, but I’ll let those simmer in the background as I finish up on all of these others things that are “cooking.”
The other day I was out in town doing something unusual in this day and age; browsing through library books on the quest for references for my 2nd illustrated lyric book. I will probably post a picture of my 1st illustration as I’ve only shared this with my followers on Patreon so far. I made a pretty cool artwork last year and have pretty much mentally mapped out how I want my new lyric book to look like so now it only remains to put all of the individual pictures together. Here are some pictures from my 1st lyric book, it is available as an ebook right here: ILLUSTRATED LYRIC BOOK the physical version is only available through my Patreon.
As I’ve regained my inspiration and drive I’ve lost interest in regularly blogging so I’ll take a break from this hobby, at least until I’ve sorted through all of these lyrics, story ideas and songs that are spread around all over the place.
“Who’s Gonna Make Me Happy?” is the 5th music video taken from “Berit-Vol.1” – Make sure that you get a signed CD from my website if you enjoy my music!
If you like my music and want to support it then it is possible to buy signed CDs (in all three genres) from my website right here: WWW.COMMANDERMUSIC.COM
