I own and operate both entities, The Inkubator Production Company and Hearteur Naturals, LLC, and we’ve produced original works that are free and online to view; these are more intended for an adult audience, as is this site.  I created new videos that are in my MEDIA section:  Until and Crossings.  Please check them out.  If you want me to review a movie, I’m sorry but I work so much right now I hardly have time to create, which is my passion.  I’ve definitely paid my dues for years (done a lot of volunteering/free labor).  But let me know if you have some paid work for me, and I will surely get back to you.  Please keep creating yourself!  I totally support that! -Heather

The Dark Part of the Sea
By Heather Arneson
Broken English
Sweeps under the rug
He swears he’s a saint
But walks like a thug
Won’t you have some tea, cheri?
Eyes swimming like the sea
You’re damaged
But I love my bright and fiery sea
Listen to only me tonight—I swear I’ll set you free
So what kind of place are you living in?
Who are you pissing off today?
Why can’t you be more like the present ones?
I see how they are future’s way
What word did they ever call you?
Uniqueness is my brand
Why do you always
Give everyone else the upper hand?
His eyes trail off in the distance
Like some moth-torn willow tree
Stinging slow
And leaving fast
A crying fear that cannot last
You showed your light
How could you know
He prefers the dark part of the sea?

The Lyre Effect is an experiment bringing poetry and music together through two unique perspectives, including Stuart Armitage “The Ambient Punk” and Heather Arneson “The Raving Lyre.”   St. Paul musician and producer Robert Romani originally recorded some of Heather’s poetry, and after she posted the work on myspace, this caught the attention of Stoo, a seasoned drummer and music producer. They began collaborating in the fall of 2006, spurring The Lyre Effect.  If  unsettling ambient electronic rock and bittersweet broken soul poetry piques your interest, please listen here: https://thelyreeffect.bandcamp.com or “like” us: https://www.facebook.com/thelyreeffect

Below is our music video for “Imperial Fortress,” directed by Jason Schumacher.
