Happy Moon Landing Anniversary!

filkyeahfilk:

“Hope Eyrie” by Leslie Fish, performed by Julia Ecklar.  Originally about the moon landing, but I think it suits current events as well.  It is a GOOD DAY to be HAPPY about SPACE.

Lyrics, chords, and a 4-part choral arrangement can be found here

Happy 50th anniversary of the moon landing, everyone!

For folks who follow us on WordPress:

I just wanted to apologize for the long, long delay in syncing our Tumblr posts and responding to folks. I work at an immigration legal nonprofit in the US, and as anyone following current US politics can probably guess, that’s been requiring rather a lot of my energy recently. I’ll be trying to get back to folks who’ve messaged us on WordPress over the next few days.

Love,

The Brain Mod

Last chance to back the Misbehavin’ Maidens’ 3rd Album Kickstarter.

Okay folx, last chance to back the Misbehavin’ Maidens’ 3rd Album Kickstarter! It ends May 10 at 10 p.m. EDT! We are a 100% indie, self-funded band.

The album we’re funding, “Swearing is Caring,” is full of wonderfully nerdy, feminist, LGBTQIAP+-inclusive filk music, plus a lot of swearing, because #Big2019Mood, y’all.

It’s got songs about libraries, anxiety, what not to say after sex, mansplaining, catcalling, Star Trek, Harry Potter, and more.

Because we’ve met stretch goals, everyone who backs the Kickstarter gets bonus stuff, too:

1. All physical-reward-level backers will receive a “Swearing is Caring” sticker

2. ALL backers will receive a bonus, downloadable coloring book page

3. All $5+ level backers will receive an early-release single IF we hit our $17,500 stretch goal (and as I write this, we’re less than $500 away!)

Backer-exclusive rewards (ones you won’t be able to get anywhere else) include:

1. Skull pillow

2. Drunken postcard

3. Glittery variant “Swearing is Caring” enamel pin

So don’t miss out! And thank you to everyone who has supported the campaign so far – please continue spreading the word! And even if you don’t have money to spare right now, reblogs are super helpful. Thank you for boosting the signal!

I’m Winning – The DoubleClicks

“I’m Winning,” by The Doubleclicks

Check out this song about maybe gender and maybe video games that made me unexpectedly emotional!

Also check out the Kickstarter (30 hours left as of now) for the band’s new album!  It’s fully funded, but there are stretch goals!  Including an RPG livestream, since that’s all the rage right now.

Free Spirit – Ben Newman


She called out to the Sky Eye as she gripped the ancient stone
Tell my sister when you see her: As of now, we’re on our own

@animatedamerican​ says: I got to hear Ben sing this in open circle at Boskone 2019, the weekend after Opportunity was declared dead. We needed it.

Written for Opportunity’s sister rover Spirit, and as relevant now as it was then. Full lyrics and chords can be found here.
