So I thought I'd write an "End of the World" song for the FilkONtario songwriting contest coming up next weekend. I finished it tonight, typed it up, tried it out on daisy_knotwise, and decided that it was good.

And then I clicked back to the FKO website to check the rules. And the songwriting contest topic for this year is "End of Time".

Oh. Never mind.

Thud, thud, thud.

Well, I've still got a week.

Well, the two could possibly be related to one another.

True, although I could probably write a song about the magazine folding and leave the world standing.

But if you're going to Concertino, you're all set for *that* songwriting contest. :D

Sort of the Concertino contest is "Not the end of the world"

Oops! My bad. :)

No prob
It's not the end of the world

So if Bill transposes his up a tone...

Then it'll be sharp!

Down! Down a tone. Opposites are clearly not my strong point today. :)

What you should do now is write a song about having written a song on the wrong subject, and submit it to the ConCertino song contest.

ConCertino's contest theme is "NOT the end of the world."

True, but meta-filk is so overdone. :)

That's interesting...I was also under the impression that the topic was "The End of the World". I now wonder where that came from.
15th-Apr-2012 09:58 pm (UTC)
We are apparently confused... :)

Obviously, in a time line a couple of spaces over, the topic IS "The End of the World", and the fact that filker's brains are picking up signals between time lines is a sign of the fact that the time stream is breaking up and will soon in fact be bringing about the end of time.

That should work fine if you add a melody. :)
