Filk: IRC
delirium happy
I was reminded today that it's been absolutely ages since I last filked. So I decided to write a quick 15 minute filk, because filking is fun. It's not the greates in the world ever, and I feel sure that someone else somewhere must have used the same idea at some point in the past, but there you go. To the tune of Let It Be by The Beatles.

When I find myself in times of boredom
Inspiration comes to me
Log in to the network: IRC
And through the hours of darkness
'Til the morning light shines in on me
Spending all my time on IRC

Spending all my time on IRC

And when the broken hearted people
Living in the world agree
LDRs result from IRC
For though we may be parted
There is still a chance that we could see
No-one need be single: IRC

Spending all my time on IRC

And when I should be working
There are people who rely on me
Still can't kick the habit: IRC
I wake up face down on the keyboard
Keys all pressing into me
I think I feel asleep on IRC

Spending all my time on IRC

I was close to falling out of my chair with laughter, but steadied myself at the last minute. This was fortunate, as falling out of my chair in the position I'm sitting in, surrounded by the things that surround me, could possibly have resulted in severe injury.

Wait...severe injury results in getting really good drugs, right? Damn, not fortunate after all.

A long time ago, I had grand aspirations of writing a Bohemian Rhapsody one, beginning "Is this the real life? Is this just IRC?"

But then I ran out of inspiration after the second line.

I suspect such a filk could be done.
Rho: You're evil. I like this one & feel it must be sung at future gatherings :)

Caught in a net split
As we escape from reality

Bohemian Rhapsody is a nasty song to filk, because everyone knows it so well, so it's harder to take liberties. Plus, it's about 20 minutes long, so you have a whole lot to write. American Pie is exactly the same.

You, my dear, are BRILLIANT! I was laughing so hard, that my boss was shooting me dirty looks.
