This is it. My personal list, where all my ideas get explored before they make their way onto Music to Escape Reality (mostly — some lucky ducks get bypassed right to the top).
This is me at my most chaotic. Enjoying music without concern for how it might be received by others, or how it paints a broader picture. This is an insight into my pure love of music, at it’s core. Raw, untapped, essential.
And if this wanky bio doesn’t make you want to delve in and see what lies in the morass, then perhaps the frankly obscenely talented roster of cats that dwell within will.
If you like Escape Reality, then this is its progenitor. If you want to predict my footsteps, this is as close a thing to a roadmap as you’re likely to find.
If you find my work valuable, or you just really like my taste in music, then you can pay what you feel to support me on this journey. That's really all there is to it! Your support means I can focus more energy in this space, and continue the psychodynamic odyssey. All support is appreciated equally & emphatically

Hi my name is Matt, but my friends call me Matt. I’m on the wrong side of 29 (damn I hate it every time I have to update that number), definitely feeling my age, but never felt happier and more content than I do at this point in my life. I’ve been through some rocky patches (who hasn’t) and lived to tell the tale, and boy do I gots some stories.
When I’m not giving opinions absolutely nobody asked for, I’m doing a worldbuilding with my passion project, vivaellipsis. If you like offbeat nonsense delivered through immersive escapism, then go and get involved. Or don’t, I’m not telling you what to do. I’m not yer boss.
I’m a simple man with simple interests. I like Yorkshire tea, the sound of rain on the window, and a bloody good story.

What today’s insight has granted me is the knowledge that if you don’t check in on yourself, you’ll lose touch with yourself. You’ll become unfamiliar with each other, and it feels very strange. I honestly think this is what it means to feel out of sorts.
