This is only one of my new things, and I'll post lyrics to the other one later.

Come To Conflikt © chaoswolf 2012

TTO: Come Together by Paul McCartney & John Lennon

Here come old Creed Lombard.
He come grooving up slowly.
He got little banjo on back.
He one good singer.
He got child down below his knee.
Got to be a filker to just play what you please.

He wear no shoe shine.
He got big filk circle.
He drink diet cola.
He use no guitar picks.
He say I hear you, you hear  me.
One thing I can tell you is you got to be free.
Come to Conflikt right now over me.

Talis album production.
She got new shiny.
She got good sound crew.
She one cool person.
She got fans down below her knee.
Hold you in your seats so you can hear sing please.
Come to Conflikt right now over me.

Dixon's new guitar.
He got nice new strings.
He got old songbook.
He one old filker.
He say. "One song, one song, one song sing me."
Got to be singin' cause he's so rare to see.
Come to Conflikt right now over me.
Come to Conflikt.



On a completely different note (well, OK. At con note), I uploaded a music video of The Reckoning by Steve Dixon. Used by permission. The "stereo Signing" is bloody awesome. More con notes to come later.

Been a while since I posted one of these, huh...? Mkay. Long list, so here's the highlights. Meaning )
  • School has started. I've got a nice class setup for the e-commerce class (all online) , a horrible layout/professor for my Intro to Programming class (up to my ASCII in Micro-$loths) and have a terrible project to work on but am currently stumped. Oh, and my Bus101 class: I'm doing well in that too. Last 2 quizzes = 18/20, 16/20. Take-home essay exam thingie due on the 1st, so get to do that. Get to take video of something/someone this weekend, and will use for educational purposes since it's for a project in my E-commerce class. I'm doing well in school so far this quarter, but am seriously hating Nico and his $lothiness.

  • Conflikt <---- an excuse to see [personal profile] mdlbear again, and my mother. An excuse to see people I would otherwise need to wait a year for. A chance to extend wedding mazeltovs to moshez since I haven't seen him in a long time. (Since last year, I think.) A chance to...ye-gads: try breaking my father with a new filk. Hey...I have enough material for a Two-Fer! Of my own! YAY! Think on school, try to get stuff done, ask for help with the damn project from hell that refuses to die...piece of kindling I mean...erm. Yeah. Enough about that. Enjoy myself. Yes.A chance to do something out of the ordinary is always good, and I don't consider school ordinary. I consider sitting on my keetster and playing computer games to be ordinary, OTOH I've had a bit too much homework recently to make ordinary happen regularly. Must remember to write interview questions for Bear.

  • Snowboarding: I wanna go so bad...damn furmeet having it on a Monday. I can't skip class, no matter how badly I want to get away from Nico. Damn conscience. I have my own gear this time.

  • TL;DR (Too Long; Didn't Read):
    • Keys found.
    • I'm back in school and more or less having fun.
    • Conflikt: Filkers R Us!
    • Snowboarding: I wanna go.

     I was the very model of a LARP Goddess Professional
    My antics and my wordplay was passing in congressional
    I know the kings of England, and I fought the fights historical 
    The rules of play at SA familiar categorical

    I'm very well acquainted, too, with matters mathematical, 
    I understand equations, both the hit points and quadratical, 
    About Styigian politics I'm teeming with a lot o' news, 
    With many cheerful facts about devouring the enfant-newbs
    I'm very good at integral and differential politics; 
    I know the scientific names of beings and their supernatural cliques: 
    In short, in matters pretendy fun, and OOG playerful, 
    I was the very model of a LARP Goddess Professional

    Finally got off my arse and did a bit of maintenance to my primary site. Fixed the HTML on the contact page, cleaned it up, and posted lyrics to the long-awaited Conchair's Lament that I wrote at this year's Conflikt. (waves at [livejournal.com profile] ryuuaja ) I promise, the lyrics to Lassie will also get posted. Experimentation with different gallery type program things over xmas will perhaps lead to something better than DeviantArt that I can use on my savitzky.net domain.

    • Reality Bites Back -- Murphy's Law and the Chew Toys: This is the most recent news between me & [identity profile] selkit.livejournal.com On the one paw, circumstances have been less than ideal because Murphy feels the need to make everything harder than it was already. On the other...I don't really want to go there. A learning experience; good because it had a lot of positive memories/moments and bad because of the strain it put us both through. A piece of me will always be with him, even if our paths never cross again in reality. Advice had been heard, parts of it may have been followed while others of it were ignored. I don't want to make a scalding post against him, I just ask you understand this is the way it is because Murphy decided to chew on us. Sean, I don't blame you. I never will. I feel it's my fault it didn't work. I am truly sorry.



    • Chaoswolf: The Gypsy Years [Impending move II (as it's my second move and numbered thusly)] -- stated in this post, I'm too busy acting on survival instincts to attempt preparations for the impending move; which is happening by/before end of March (new location Marysville). Don't get me wrong, I love Redmond. The problem is the apartment complex. You may remember my earlier post that is one of the two major deterrents from living here. The other...well, really...it's just way too damn expensive to live here now. Rent is now either $1050 or $1100, that I just simply don't have the means to afford anymore (it was $962 when we got it initially in April 2009). I am grateful to Dix and [identity profile] asahoshi.livejournal.comfor the offer of space, [identity profile] celedraug.livejournal.com and her minion E for offering to help with the transportation issues surrounding the move, [personal profile] mdlbear and Mamacat for being so supportive, and Grimm for buying my knives so I have enough $ to scrape by with until circumstances change.



    • conflikt was a fantastic con for me. We didn't see [identity profile] vixyish.livejournal.com or [identity profile] tfabris.livejournal.com, but we did have one hell of a filler: the one and only [identity profile] ryuuaja.livejournal.com. I am extremely impressed with the bard's music over the last year.
      • Friday, I was waiting for [identity profile] asahoshi.livejournal.comand company to show up. I'm wearing my tail, and after stopping by the dealer's den to confirm my favorite bard was at his table, I went upstairs to trade a few words with Dad and get my fur suit. Walked back downstairs and showed up and I think he said "Because nobody in their right mind would bring a fur suit to a filk con." He's correct: I'm right handed, so in my left mind. Hehe. Dinner with the [personal profile] mdlbear followed by some really interesting concerts. I was a big fan of Cecelia Eng and Steve Dixon's sets, as they were a nice mix. Black Davey's Ride done earlier in the night followed by Our Mrs. Reynolds (which, for those of you who don't follow Serenity/Firefly is a song about Mal's wife set to the same tune) was just bloody awesome. Awesome filking later on during the open filk, followed by me going to bed @ ~0230 or so.

      • Woke up Saturday morning (uncertainty what time exactly) to have breakfast with the 2 Ds and a J mentioned above (who were my room mates at the con). Got back to the hotel, placed an Interfilk bid or 3, enjoyed every waking moment. Not to mention spending more time with my parents. Had interesting time playing messenger and getting shot, but that was fairly irrelevant due to the fact that con weddings are win when over with. Um...Interfilk voice auction resulted in me & asahoshi getting into a bidding war over a holographic Matrix poster. She started the bidding rather low at $1, then I think I upped it to $5, then 6, then 10, til finally I won it @ $25. Interesting we were the only two bidding on this...*shrug* Mom & Dad donated some of their mutant lemons, which went for a whopping $20. Being that these lemons are infamous, I thought that they'd be worth more. Wrong. Dinner was awesome, mixed with discussion and followed by The Bard's amazing concert. The last 4 songs of his set were Daughters of Angels (which I was busy stuffing my face through), Animals All The Same, (which I was jamming hard near the stage in a bomber jacket/suit), Blood and Passion (again, nomming), and Hymn To Herne (more nom). I may have the order wrong on the last 4, but I know I have my actions right during the songs. My biggest regret about that night aside from the bomber jacket and air guitar on my tail was that I wimped out early for music and didn't get to do dawn patrol.

      • Sunday. That was interesting. Wedding that we slept through ( I didn't really know the couple, and I was hungry), music that I scribbled right before lunch followed by last minute bidding wars on things in the silent IF auction between me, asahoshi and her mother over pens, chocolate covered espresso beans, and candy. I got the pens and chocolate espresso beans. I was borrowing asahoshi's copy of the Heather Alexander song book, then grinned as I finished the lyrics. Lunch ends. We come back to the hotel, I go into the Dealer's room.
        QOTD:

        Me: Aja, you going to be at the smoked salmon?"
        Aja: "Yes, of course."
        Me: "Good." and smile knowingly. I have a surprise for you.
        Aja: "I know that look. That's the 'I'm going to have to kill you' look."
        Me: "Yep."

        Shortly thereafter, I smoked him that night with Working On A ConCom. I got points! And his blessing to post it to his fan community. Last time I did this, it was at a NorWesCon in an open filk circle (Lassie Are Ya Tunin. Lyrics for Working On A ConCom will be posted the next time I actually open my song book, which I've not been feeling up to doing since con due to depression/panic.) I'm seeing a pattern here. Savitzkied. Not quite the same ring as Kanefed, but similar effect. Both times, I was singing in front of my idol and I was trembling with stage fright. The fact I had alcohol in my system both times was purely coincidence (IMO).

    • C:tGY [Move II (con't)] -- Move details are pending. Post-con shenanigans include trying to help as best I can of getting the space I'm moving into cleared out, stuff packed into boxes, and will need to have a discussion with the current room mates about when (approximately)I can dismantle the kitchen and pack up my stuff, since most of it's mine. My biggest issues with the current amount of stuff I have is the dresser, amount of clothing, the desk, and a hope chest. I'm hoping I can take the desk apart and reassemble inside my small room, but getting it in there is going to be a trick and a half given the size of the hallway. May have to put it on craigslist or something. *sigh* then spend money for a new desk...wait -- the card table is mine. Yeah, reality bites like that. I'll be trying as much as I can to attempt to move stuff from here to there so I have less to do come next month. Will most likely start bunkering down and doing all of that packing crap after the 20th, as that's when it becomes crunch time for me. I'll also need to score some packing tape I have duct tape. That'll do. Um....hm. There will be a separate posting on move details (possibly even a filker filter) of its own. Now for the question (modified slightly since I'm a free subscriber):If I created a move post tag/filter, would you want to be on it? Options are Yes, No and Clicky. If you give me the latter of the three, I'll be looking for a smart-ass or otherwise humorous answer saying what Clicky means to you. (can also include yes/no answers, if you're so inclined.) Second half of that question is filter or tag: why you'd prefer your answer.

    • Gadget lust [new cell phone] -- the one I have is an old school Sony Ericson W750. It sucks. It has a non-standard (all the phone chargers are now micro USB now, IIRC) charger/USB cable, my USB cable craps out on me when I attempt to charge it, the wall charger is bulky and awkward, and the phone constantly says it has an invalid SIM card. Initially, I wanted the Motorola Backflip, which I learned has been discontinued. The Motorola Bravo appears to be it's successor, camera somewhat more fail-sauce than the Backflip, but if that's the only thing I'm sacrificing...I'm not going to complain. I hate my Ericson so much, and the Moto Bravo has a thingie that lets you locate it! That's a function I will actually use! If I get dumb and leave it in a pocket or plain sight, I can find the damn thing.Want! 'Course, I need to talk to Dad and see about the possibility of getting this done before I move (the issue will be that I'll need to have $70 on me or in my account I can pay with to walk away with it same day and I'm currently broke.) Hopefully, this will happen. I want to shoot my Ericson. I like the idea of having a wi-fi enabled phone, and a functioning QWERTY keyboard. I hate having to press a button 4 times for one letter, more in the case of a 1. Grr.

    • Taxes: Oh yeah. About that. I'll still have to file. It'll be interesting and slightly delayed because I have to wait for my dad to ship up a copy of my tax return from last year (since I asked him nicely to file for me.) Once he does, I'll do it (for the first time)on my own. Bleah. However, based on my sorta income (2 short-lived jobs I had that paid well, relatively) and sponsor membership @ FC 2010, I may be looking @ $349 in ITR (Income Tax Refund). Here's hoping I don't have to chuck it all toward space @ Dix's and I can actually spend it on something useful (driving lessons or sanity checks.) Anyways, now that I've made everyone depressed, I'm going to shut up now. May the rest of 2011 not suck, please?

    Story: I had a copy of the official Heather Alexander Songbook at my feet. Molly is trying to figure the chords to a previous song. I ask her if she's tuning, then Creede sings "Lassie Are Ya Tunin?" and this abomination song came into existence. A few filkers later, I made it's debut.

    Lassie Are Ya Tunin? )

    [livejournal.com profile] mdlbear's response was "You're going to post that on your LJ, right?" to which [livejournal.com profile] cflute added "And to the Emerald City Filk List?"

    x-posted to [livejournal.com profile] filk, will be presented to RyuAja in the morning.

    Now that I think about it, I did meet him. Once. [livejournal.com profile] ohiblather's picture reminded me that I had seen him. At NorWesCon. I went to a little open filking on Friday night, saw [livejournal.com profile] tfabris and [livejournal.com profile] vixyish and several others, listened to his rendition of a parody of The Girl That's Never Been. I just got off the phone with [livejournal.com profile] flower_cat, who told me who he was. I didn't recognize the name, but after seeing the picture of him, I now remember meeting him.

    Rest in Peace, Dr. Filk.

    In other news: [livejournal.com profile] asahoshi took me out to the VW Cruise with her mate J and her son D. I had a blast. I also got a new bed, which means I won't have to sleep on the floor again.

    OK. I am going to make a disclaimer here: The filks are actually behind the cut tags, uncut and unabridged. The reason why it's cut is to spare your f-page. If you'd rather the lyrics sent to you via email, drop me a message on yahoo, icq or something like that. Give me a call, even.

    Author's note: I wrote this one at my dad's feet during the CMQ memorial filk circle. Couldn't think of anything, but she was the inspiration with an inscription she wrote on a CD label: Katy, you are strong and bright. Let no one diminish your inner light --- Cynthia McQuillin.

    Only the Cons )

    Author's note: This one is long. I'm sorry. Hence why it's behind a cut tag. Anyways: Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe as told through the eyes of the children. It's meant as a 4-parter. It can be done duet or solo, but it will sound really good as done in 4 parts. It starts out at the beginning of the movie and progresses through the rest of it.The names will be in italics and spoken stuff will be bold text. The sung stuff is all thought processes that went through my mind as I watched the movie. The chorus is between every 2 verses, the final refrain replaces the regular chorus and will always be sung by all.

    Narnia's Civil War )
