Into the Afternight, Our 3rd Shift Open Thread.

If you’re still up and want to talk Chiefs, or just hang with fellow citizens of the Kingdom, this is the place.

So we’re coming up fast on Independence Day, which is traditionally about food, family, fun, and stuff that burns and explodes. So tonight I thought I’d have a little fun, myself. But first let me set the stage.

At fan-run science fiction conventions there’s a tradition we call “filking”, which is a music room for performances and sing-alongs. There’s original music and songs using the tunes from well-established songs, mostly traditional melodies, with new lyrics that follow SF or fantasy themes. The word “filk” was purely the result of a typo on a convention program which meant to say “folk music”. Naturally the word stuck, and here we are. There were a few well-known performers “on the circuit” over the years, and I’m going to introduce you to a trio of her original songs. She’s done more serious songs, but these three are strictly for fun. Just remember that Argo was a liberty port planet a la Star Trek:TOS and that there was plenty of people looking for love at these conventions. The last one needs no explanation. Let’s roll.

She’s also a good guitarist, and all three of these feature music written by her. Last I heard, she was trying to establish a breeding linage of cats based on nothing more than superior intelligence. A very interesting lady who I’ve met a time or three. I hope y’all check these out, cuz that’s all I got.

With that, time’s yours.

The movie…Armageddon. The scene…the club just before they get sent into space.
