Tell me something good... - Phil's Rambling Rants
Tell me something good...|
This is such a good idea that I'm shamelessly stealing it from filkerdave
Please pick one person on my friends list and tell me something good about them that you don't think I know.
alymid is amazingly creative
is probably responsible for keeping me involved in filk in the US. I had a miserable time at my first couple of US filkcons because I could never break in to circles (chaos is a little less frenetic in the UK) and I nearly quit entirely.
Then I met Dave and he was loud for me. *grin*
So the fact that I'm still around is All His Fault.
Thank you, Dave, we're in your debt!
The big circles at OVFF, in particular, have gotten pretty brutal in the last few years. There just is no way to have a nice pleasant filk when there are 50 guitars (or more exotic instruments) in the room. I've learned to survive by (a) looking hard for a smaller circle in an alternate room, and (b) setting my expectations at only doing a few songs for the weekend before I leave. I go to OVFF to visit with friends these days more than to actually sing.
