It’s been a bit of a rollercoaster ride. Can’t quite believe that two weeks ago I was doodling an idea and now I’ve put together a website and starting writing this seriously.
If you’re seeing this, then one of three things has happened: either Facebook told you, Google+ told you, or you happened upon the website some other way. However you got here, welcome!
Been having a few teething troubles getting this all set up, mostly due to an unconventional server setup and having upgraded to PHP7. Technical details aside, the server is failing a few things it should be able to do, but they’re not so critical that the websites are broken.
So far I’ve got three drafts in the works to explain bits of the setting, and I have a few more planned. First though, I thought I’d explain the name.
Those of you familiar with No Rest for the Wicked will probably know that the name comes from Cage the Elephant’s Ain’t No Rest for the Wicked which was the opening track for Borderlands.
In a peculiar twist, and with no inherent intentions, the name No Heaven also comes from the Borderlands soundtrack, though I imagine less people are familiar with the track: DJ Champion’s No Heaven.
I can’t say that there’s a clever lyrical meaning behind the choiceI was walking home considering the game when it started playing on Spotify and suddenly it just clicked as a perfect name though there are a few lines that work quite well.
Oh boy, oh well I told you
Well I told you, but I thought you’d know
There ain’t no heaven
When you consider humanity has reached out to the skies and found only danger threatening to wipe out the remains of humanity, it does bring about the question of whether God or heaven truly exist.
You can watch the music video below, or listen to it on Spotify.
