"Filking 101" and "Filk It Up!" (Song parodies galore!)
« on: August 12, 2011, 06:00:03 am »
Ladies and gents, maids and yojimbo, and otaku of all ages!   ;D  Not one, but two panels all about anime-, gaming-, and fandom-related song parodies will be going down in the Oak Room (Panel 2) on Sunday!


Filking 101
10:30 - 11:30am

Do you know what a filk is?  If you've ever listened to "Yoda" by Weird Al Yankovic, you've already heard at least one!  Come by the Oak Room to hear a few more musical odes to popular series and the many quirks of fandom.  Plus, get the rundown on the filking process, and participate in a group write-a-thon as we create our own original filks and sing them together!


Filk It Up!
3:30pm - 5:00pm

So, how long has that original song parody of yours been burning a hole in your writing folder?  Years?  Months?  Weeks?  Or did you write it a few hours ago at Filking 101?  Whether you've been filking for decades or you just set pen to paper for the first time at Kumoricon 2011, this is your moment to seize the spotlight at an open-mic workshop/showcase.  Ask for detailed critique from other filkers, or just have fun performing your fannish masterwork for an appreciative audience of fellow otaku!   ;D


So, sound off, filkers and filk fans!  Who's going to be there?  What are you planning to perform at Filk It Up?  And for those of you who've seen me perform before, do you have any requests for old songs you'd like to hear at Filking 101?

Wow, how perfect, they basically sandwich my panel (which is 1pm-3pm Sunday), rather than overlap it. I definitely plan to be at the second, and will see if I can make the first, having very much enjoyed it at Creation Station last year!

Rem, what were the names of the songs you sang for us? I want to make sure I credit you and the original artists properly when I go back through and edit all the notes on the videos.

(1) "Soul's In Hell" was my Supernatural fandom filk to "Gives You Hell" by the All-American Rejects.
(2) "Viewing Supernatural" was my Supernatural fandom filk to "Supernova" by Liz Phair.
