[I’m in Hollywood for a week meeting with my agent and pitching a script, think Time Bandits meets Smokin’ Aces. Enjoy one of these fine staged articles in my absence]
I found that song while surfing for Celtic music for the wife, instead I find geek folk music. Also known as ‘Filk‘. I learned this week that:
Filk is music about Science Fiction and Fantasy topics. It’s kinda folk music for the Sci Fi world. Filk music includes everything from song praodies with Sci Fi themes to original pieces written with Science Fiction and Fantasy themes.
Course, our specialty has been more with the Fantasy themes than the Science Fiction (though Sci Fi often also includes Fantasy). Since I started playing Dungeons & Dragons in Junior High, I was writing Fantasy pieces and listening to “Wierd Al” Yankovic.
Want to hear more about the group or sample their many songs? Here you go, you can thank me in the comments
