Filk Recommendation: John Anealio’s Laser Zombie Robot Love

Some things belong to deep geekdom. Filk music is one of those things.  John Anealio’s album includes songs about (among other things):

  • An angry robot who discovers the singularity
  • Dressing up like a storm-trooper on Halloween
  • The challenges of being a geek dad
  • Nanowrimo (and if I have to tell you what that is, you my not grok the song)
  • and – perhaps only hysterically funny if you are inside the science fiction and fantasy field — a song titled  “George R.R. Martin is not your bitch.”

At any rate, one of my goals this weekend was to listen to this (which required updated operating systems, but that’s only because I started out on the wrong computer – I won’t go into the geek details here).  I liked it enough I listened to it a few times today, and I will be dropping some of the songs onto my “favorite filk” playlist.  It’s only a $5.00 donation, and I’m pretty sure it will make you smile.  It made me smile.  Go get it.
