Best fannish thing that I have been indirectly responsible for in a while:

The Assimilation of hsifyppah.

[cue evil laughter here]

Yay! Another filker who will understand my Lantean filks! When I write more of them...

Ah, I wrote a song called Atlantis Shines back in June - before I'd ever seen a single episode of Season 3 mind, so the ending is even more poignant open seeing what happened at the end.

There is a scratch track of it as well. It's kinda lame, but at least it gives you an idea of what it sounds like.

I have tweaked the lyrics a bit since then, but that's generally the song.

Okay. Just downloaded both [and did on the fly mods to the lyrics based on what you sang vrs what you wrote].

Could you make my life a bit easier and give me at tleast the key this is in if not the actual chords? Otherwise I'll just wing it here.

BTW: *Great* filk! This one gets learned and, hopefully, if it's okay, done at the next filk sing I'm at.

Can we have some more, please?

Addenda...
Addenda to the above reply. Noticed you list 'Echo's Children' in your side bar. I know Cat Faber from long ago and far away when she was in the SCA out here in the Kingdom of An Tir. She wrote a couple of war ballands for My Barony [I was Baroness at the time] and there are still a couple of her pieces I do at Bardics from time to time when I'm able to get my age-stiffened fingers working.

Cat's really good folk.

Re: Addenda...
It's interesting, really - I've known Callie for years, but Cat had already moved away by the time I met Callie, and I never did get to meet her.

I *adore* all the Echo's Children stuff, and I love singing with Callie because I get to do all of Cat's parts. I actually sang harmonies for "How Far Back" and "Columbia" on their last album, "From the Hazel Tree" - laying down tracks in the studio while listening to Cat sing in my ear through the headphones is about as close as we have ever come to actually meeting. I have heard that she is a wonderful lady.

Here is my more updated word doc with chords:

I would be delighted to know that someone enjoyed it *and* wants to share it at other filk circles!That would be delightful!

Hey, are you going to come to Conflikt in January? It's down your way!

Ack! B flat! Okay, this will get rechorded for me. In my world ‘capo’ is Italian for ‘I can’t do bar chords’. :{

As for the con – this is the first I’ve heard of it. I might be able to day trip at least one day of it – it looks like fun. The price isn’t bad and it *is* just up the road. [Thanks for letting me know about this]

Right now I’ve got RustyCon and NorWesCon on my list as I’m ‘working’ for AmyCat with ‘Book Universe’. I help with set up, take down and spell her off so she can see things and I get into the con. A ‘win-win’ all the way around.

Hee! Find your happy place and go with it. I used to transpose things all the time before I got to the point I didn't cuss every time I saw a bar chord, so I feel your pain. It helped when I got a guitar that had decent action and I didn't feel like I had to *squeeze* it to death just to hold the chord, never mind add a bar.

I have never done a Rusty con though I know lots of folks who do. I am planning to be at NorWes this year since they were kind enough to invite me back a a small (g) filk guest again. I am hoping to get in on one of the writing panels this year, touching on Blogging/social networking sites and how this has affected writers. We shall see! I'm keeping my fingers crossed. I'm only fanfic writer, so they may not want me for anything in the literary track.

I hope that we end up at the same filk circle at some point - it would sure be nice to have someone in the room who appreciates SG as much as I do.
