Community Member Creates Musical Tribute to The Escapist

image

In this arrangement dedicated to all things Escapist, btenkink has certainly touched all the bases.

With a daily influx of adorable animal pictures as well as an occasional mailing of cookies, we here at The Escapist thought we had everything. That is until a dedicated fan sent us this original musical composition crammed full of delicious Escapist shout-outs. From calling out fan favorite Zero Punctuation, to a mention of LoadingReadyRun, this little ditty references plenty of Escapist content favorites and in-jokes.

This number is aptly titled "Great Escape" and gives us a singular glimpse into the mind of a die-hard Escapist fan. You can listen to it below.

Now that you've heard the song, here are a couple of The Escapist staff's favorite lyrics:

My great escape is one related link away.

Five years running and it keeps getting better
I don't know how Susan Arendt keeps it together
I enjoyed your site so much I thought I'd write you a letter
Let you know, let y'all know I hope you publish forever.

Thanks again to btenkink for this amazing contribution!

wow man, you just earned yourself a community spotlight nomination.

Well quite clearly this needs to follow to it's logical conclusion, which of course, is a song with Miracle Of Sound =P

Very nice indeed.

Holy fuck....this is amazing! O_o

No Daystar shout out!?! WHAT!??!

Nah, just kidding. He doesn't deserve it anyway. Good job man, sounded good :D

Nice! I guess I know what's gonna be stuck in my head for the next while.

Great work. I was expecting mentions of closed shows but i guess it wouldn't fit well.

What is this weird stuff coming out of my ear? I...I think I just had an eargasm from the epic song I just heard. If they still had the Thanks! Badge then this person deserves one for sure!

Fappy:
No Daystar shout out!?! WHAT!??!

Nah, just kidding. He doesn't deserve it anyway. Good job man, sounded good :D

Wait, now that you mention it...

Where IS Daystar anyway?!

OT: Great job. See, I'm happy to see/hear/enjoy stuff like that because I would never be able to do something like that myself. :D

Fappy:
No Daystar shout out!?! WHAT!??!

Nah, just kidding. He doesn't deserve it anyway. Good job man, sounded good :D

That was what I was hoping for when I clicked the link. He'd eat this up.

Holy fuck, that was great.

Wow, that was really quite good btenkink :D

This made me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. Kudos!

Well that was just incredible. Nicely summed up how we (or at least I) see the Escapist. Cheers for making this!

You said it, Nasrin is getting my PM about this. This is awesome!! :D

:)The Muses have gifted us a great song through this person.

:D Thank God for btenkink, and Thank God for The Escapist.

Well done!

Well done sir! This song really encompasses the awesomeness of this site and it's many contributors!

This man deserves something awesome.

I wonder if Gavin Dunne needs an extra hand...

Fappy:

Nah, just kidding. He doesn't deserve it anyway. Good job man, sounded good :D

Thanks, I love you too.

You rang?

OT: That was awesome :D

By the time the song was over, my grin was so wide it stretched right round so the two corners met at the back of my head, and then the top half of my face fell off.

Great song brought to you by btenkink. Disturbing mental image brought to you by NinjaDeathSlap. We all have our talents.

I will buy this song for as much as you want for it, I MUST have it.

Already learning it on my guitar.

Ok first. This man deserves to be Pubclub. Second. I want this song. Download location?

Cue everyone making Escapist dedication songs.

Actually, that's not a bad idea...

I've been convinced to put the song on Bandcamp. You can download the song here:

http://btenkink.bandcamp.com/track/great-escape-the-escapist-song

Damn it I got no money.

.....As soon as I get some money, I swear to buy the song.

Until then though, 'hits play'.

Geez, took your sweet time, didn't you? You got me worried there. I was afraid someone kidnapped you or...traded you in for Magic the Gathering cards...or something.
I'm...just kidding...I think.

Thanks, man! This is most helpful! 8D

Well that blew me away. Came in skeptical. Left really rather happy. I think it covers pretty much most of the reasons to like the site. ;D

Oooh... Very catchy, I like it. ^^

So... does this guy have a SoundCloud link, or what?

If this guy can't earn a 'Thanks!' badge, who can?!

Hope this ends up downloadable...
