Ain't no power in the 'verse...

... that can prevent last minute technical glitches.

Eh, all things considered, the screening went really well. People had fun, there were costumes and door prizes, and no one threw eggs at me while I was on stage so that was good. Also,

The mic wasn't fantastic, and I was too far away from it part of time, so overall I would say my performance was sorta meh. But! There were a couple of big time scores - people *loved* Evil Laugh (like there was ever any doubt) and I got to sing Rodney oh Rodney. Even though it was a pretty Stargate indifferent crowd, the song scored big time. Cuz it is damn funny.

I had a power point all prepared, but no battle plan survives first contact with the enemy intact. I hacked it to bits and gave the tech guy my song list. He really *tried* to follow it, but later reports confirmed that the correct words were on the screen only about half the time. Eh. What can you do?

Final set list was:

Scooby Gang Marching Song
If I only were a Sith
Rodney, oh Rodney
Psi Naught
Dawson's Christian
Evil Laugh
Hero of Canton
Mal's Song

When Brandon showed up, he did a couple of his songs, then asked me to come up and play "Sail the Sky" with him. I had about half the chords - I got the verses figure out, but just totally faked the chorus. Then he kindly played Apprentice for me so I could sing it.

Considering that we first met today and have never played together *evar* it was pretty good. I completely f*cked up the bridge for Apprentice, but other than that, it was *awesome*. I rarely say this about my own preforming, but I totally rocked the house. There was audible applause after the song, despite the screw up.

So, vixyish? LOVE. YOU. SO. MUCH! Keep on writing totally awesome songs that I can steal and sing, kay? And also, I totally pimped you on stage - "This is by Vixy, on her new album. You know *this* song - this is by Vixy! You should buy this album!"

I did have one person ask me if *I* had a CD. Which was really flattering. I am not sure I will ever a) be organized enough and b) write enough original music to put out a song, but still. It was nice to be asked by a *complete stranger* if I had a CD they could buy. Cool.

Also, one of the best parts of the day is that pukajen happens to be in town. She emailed me when she saw I was going, so I ended up with a hot date. Ha! How's that for fortuitous timing? I really like hanging out with her, so best of both worlds - great company, fun event. God, fandom is so much awesome!

Next weekend - Pondfilk! SQUEE! I am so *totally* not going to be able to concentrate at work this week.

Yay! I love it when my songs have adventures without me. :) Wish I could have been there, but I so didn't have the spoons. I haven't pick up my banjola since before my surgery. But hey, pondfilk will kind of force me to. :)

Hey! We are supposed to go to Pondfilk today! I'm at work at the butt crack of dawn but realizing that I don't have your new address or phone number with me.

email me at my yahoo (dot) ca address w/ your info - I'm off at 11am and was going to just head over to your place straight away after.

Sorry I missed your filking.

I didn't get out of bed until 1:30 this afternoon.

Epic fail on my part.

Oh, Shadz.... speaking of Rodney, oh Rodney..............

http://tinyurl.com/5dql9z NSFW! But, oh so funny, considering how badly photoshopped the cast photos for S5 are. (Dryope's got 'em up on her LJ.)

There's a Captain Morgan one with John on Icanhazstargate too... Oh, the photographer totally should be shot and the person w/ the bad photoshop skills - fired. The fans can and will do better! :-p

I was there, and I thought you totally rocked! Both you and Brandon were awesome! I saw lots of audience members singing along and was asked by more than one person if you had a cd (I sent them to ask you - I'm glad at least one person did).

Thank you for helping make this year's CSTS a MIGHTY FINE SHINDIG!
