Community Member Creates Musical Tribute to The Escapist

This article is over 11 years old and may contain outdated information

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!
