Wow! A wowterfall of creativity. Let me end my Papal Office's Endlessly Talented Random Yawping (POETRY, natch)
edict demand commandment fight to the death polite request with a hearty BRAVO to all who played feared for their lives observed the holiday! Those who partook: chronosdragon, ergman, kenmelken (with a double dactyl, my fave!, hey if the megalomania fits), BlueCrab, BlitzGirl (with an enviable, admirable ease and range), ucim, ttscp, taixzo; and Cellocgw, with a tease! (did I miss anyone? Will happily go back and reread if I have) What an amazing response... though I shouldn't be surprised anymore at the talent and dedication of those in our neighborhood. *does happy ex-Pope dance of joy*
partingLance - PLEASE please please please do Highway 61. YappoB, you up for the recording? (some of us speculate on the future of the OTT; I speculate on the future of the filk)
kenmelken - can you believe what a bunch of peaceniks (so busy making love not war) we are - not one brave soul to volunteer to do battle. I'm late but not afraid to step up and declare a PageCrusade on crusades! WHO'S WITH ME???!!?
Neil_Boekend - any chance you'd share a photo of your new, clever domesticated wolpy? We've seen quite a few kitties (mewpies?) around here.
p.s. thanks again, everybody. Really. You made my dix. (that just doesn't sound right)
(another blindpost -- the Outside is being especially demanding today)
Bravo! to all the poets, is right. My regrets for not participating... I was feeling particularly, well, un-poetic yesterday.
But to partly make up for it, I hope, and as requested, a filk. As far as I've gotten, at least -- I'm torn between "less is more", which seems appropriate to xkcd, and "write just as many verses as Dylan did".
Warning: heresy ahead. I've always been a little uncomfortable with the GLR designation, preferring to see him more as a Prophet -- gifted with unusual insight, but otherwise, much like the rest of us.999
. So this filk follows from that premise. (I also imagine God as a prankster; and, for some reason, from the US South).NewPage 61 Revisited

God said to Randall, this Comic's the One
Randall said man, you must be puttin' me on
God said No, and Randall, What?
God said, think what you want man but
I tell you, there's something novel under the Sun
Randall said, when was this anointing done?
God said, take a read of NewPage 61
Randall said God, man, what have I done?
God said, now don't you sweat it, son
I put this madness in alla they heads
Now some do this, 'stead of going to bed
I'm laughing loud, but to some of them, it's not all in fun
Randall said, how long will this foolishness run?
You should know, said God, and read NewPage 61
Randall said, I don't believe this, no
I do believe it's gotten out of control
I only wanted to change it up a bit
I'd no idea about this religion shit
Now how in hell am I gonna get this comic done?
God said, just think of the alt-text, son
Just Wait for it, and start at NewPage 61999 Now, where's that comfy chair, and chocolate? I could use me some of both, today.
