- Don't Worry Londo is another Babylon-5 filk with Londo thinking maybe Morden's reassurances aren't that valuable.
- Dracula, You Need a Better Coffin it's possible that I wrote those solely to play with the word "pine".
- For some of us, Babylon 5 was almost a religion...not least because of all the foreshadowing. But foreshadowing of everything, including Shadows, had to be some kind of joke, right? Farther Along - B5 Edition
- Golden Arches pokes fun at a fast-food chain, low-hanging fruit...I know.
- A Great Defender is a brief look at Faramir, his troubles, and especially his recovery.
- Guess Things Happen With Whey is a semi-rare visit to the world of nursery rhymes.

- I'd Like To Teach The World To Ask describes the frustration of trying to figure out the actual problem when attempting to provide tech support.
- I Enjoy Being A Were is...a celebration of accepting yourself for what you are. Sure, let's go thit that!.
- If I Only Had A gun was inspired by Ben Carson quotes and the general insanity of gun culture. The choice of source material seemed appropriate.
- I Hear You Knocking had its beginning while watching a Firefly episode.
- I was writing a song that referenced Slaughterhouse 5 for an OVFF song contest. I'm Billy Pilgrim kept sneaking into my head, so I had to write it in order to concentrate on the other song..
- I'm Still Married is a bit of political fun, inspired by advances in legal decisions around gay marriage.
- It's My First Filk At Sally's: in which our hero learns that the only way to get some lines out of his head is to force them into other people's heads.
- I was thinking about people who write parodies of filk songs and so Killing Her Slowly happened.

- Life During Con Times is one I'd been wanting to do ever since my first filk con car pool.
- Mice Ruined Terra combines Douglas Adams with total disrespect for a song that some take far too seriously.
- A very silly LotR song: Mirkwood 4-5789, done mostly because the title caught my fancy.
- I don't know if it still happens but Seanan McGuire would re-write each Pegasus nominee to the tune of another. I decided to sing about it in Mutated Songs.
- Truly mundane, My Wildest Dreams is an anthem of misplaced stuff.
- Notation Song seemed like a natural way of describing a bit of music theory.
- It's hard to put One Puff Too Many into any sensible context at all.
- Ouroboros was another quick song, written to externalize a song worm.

- At Moria, the Secret Key is needed to open a door -- a rather contrived plot point, I've thought.
- She Always Games describes an entirely fictional RPG campaign.
- After practicing a certain tune over and over in preparation for FKO 2006, I decided to re-cycle it into something that would remind me of that convention. A Song At The End Of 'Dead Penguin' came from that.
- Soul Man seemed like an obvious treatment of the "Crossroads" tale.
- Strange Pussycat Minds is based on a wonderful song by Rob Balder and Tom Smith. After hearing Rob perform it Friday night at OVFF, 2005, I just had to do something with it. It seemed to me that my cats were the ones with the richest fantasy lives.
- I've written a few songs about email spam. Svetlana is another one of them.
- The big, bad wolf intrigues me in his various incarnations and so: Tenderloins.
- The Things We Learn From Spam was a quick inspiration one morning after cleaning the normal load of junk out of my email inbox.
- As I get older and increasingly forgetful, Things I Did Today becomes more real.
- I read Bob Kanefsky's notes on parody from Torcon 3. He says parodies can be serious. This one is...and LotR too. Those Days
- Time Does Betray parodies a song that was popular in the late-60s, while explaining what happened next in the story of Merlin vs. the shopping mall.
- Though Firing Line was the first filk song I started, Vicious And Cruel was the first I completed. Like, how long could it possibly have taken?
