Oh My God! An Entry!

I’m not known for posting much, but I’m gonna try to occasionally change that :)

This last weekend was ... fabulous, wonderful and all sorts of awesome since I was Conflikt 2. I cannot even find the words to say how much fun I had, seeing old friends and new as well as hearing new songs and old. Being on the concom meant I missed out on a couple of things that I’d wished to get to but such is the life :) I still am running on the con-high.

Rick (our con chair) said that anything which happens twice is a tradition. Apparently I’m starting my own tradition of writing a song at or after each Conflikt. Both of them are just lyrics at this point, and I will be trying to get them to have melody and music at some point (hopefully with the help of some of my friends who are better at it than I am). Since I never posted the one from Conflikt 1, I’ll put it below too followed by the one written this weekend.

Any comments (either compliments or critiques) will be greatfully accepted.


Con Woes, written after Conflikt 1 by JT Traub
[note: the first verse has two versions, depending on the situation, also note the chorus changes slightly each time through]

A. Woke up this morning sore to my toes,
A. Back aching straight from my butt to my head.
A. Was I sleeping on rocks or on boulders? Oh!
A. I spent the whole weekend in too firm a bed.

B. Woke up this morning sore to my toes,
B. Back aching straight from my butt to my head.
B. Was I sleeping on water or maybe air? Oh!
B. I spent the whole weekend in too soft a bed.

Creaked as I unbent, standing up straight
Knee sharply twinging, my weight it bears.
Was I trapped in a coffin eternally? Wait!
I spent the whole weekend in hotel chairs.

Chorus:
Listen my friends to this con-goer’s woes,
To the aches and the ills that all fandom knows,
I did this last year and the same happened then,
Oh why did I go and do it again?

Sinuses aching, they bring me no joy
The headache it brings, is really not fair!
Have I come down with a cold or a flu? Oy!
I spent the whole weekend breathing dry air.

Croaking and hoarse, I sound such a fright,
Can’t sing one more note if given the choice
Did my vocal chords atrophy while I slept? Right!
I spent the whole weekend abusing my voice.

Chorus:
Listen my friends to this con-goers woes,
To the aches and the ills that all fandom knows,
I did this last month and the same happened then,
Oh why did I go and do it again?

Final Chorus:
Listen my friends to this con-goers woes,
To aches and ills that all fandom knows,
I did this last week and the same happened then,
But I know that next con, I’ll go do it again.
Oh I know that next con, I’ll go do it again.



Music Sets Me Free, written after Conflikt 2 by JT Traub

When I was young, my parents shared their views.
They said the world was made in black and white.
But all they showed me was a world of spite
While I saw shades of grey in many hues.

Chorus:
You can say I’m rough around the edges,
But that’s just fine by me.
You can call me just a little crazy,
But music sets me free.

As I grew up many more folks would try
To make me walk in step or to their drum
Tried hard to hold me down beneath their thumb
But all I wanted was to learn to fly.

(Chorus)

At last one day I heard the music play
And found the place I’d looked for all my life.
My mind it eased and let go of the strife,
I’ll keep the music going come what may.

(Chorus x 2)
