Wow… I’m not having a good morning. Anyhow, I thought I would do a quick post, and then get back to what I was working on. I was browsing my reader and came across a post on Neatorama.com of a World of Warcraft/ Little Mermaid parody. Looks like they got it off a site called World of FilkCraft. What’s a Filk? I wasn’t sure, but on the home page of the site they give a link to a Wikipedia page that describes it as:
“Filk is a musical culture, genre, and community tied to science fiction/fantasy fandom and a type of fan labor. The genre has been active since the early 1950s, and played primarily since the mid-1970s. The term (originally a typographical error) antedates 1955.”
Okay… another area of geekdom I’m not that familiar with. So, I guess these guys do a bunch of World of Warcraft filks. Trog will really like this (he’s a major WoW geek). Here’s a couple of the videos below.
