Two men face off across the field
One must win and the other yield
Razor knives shining in the light
The judges wait to decide the fight
And the contest starts, they begin the game
For honor, glory, self and fame
But who will win at the final breath
The challenger … or the Iron Chef?

A filk podcast? Who knew? Give a listen to The Many Worlds of Filk, hosted by the ever-awesome Eric Coleman.
Happy Halloween, y’all!
Tonight’s the night of Halloween,
and the fairy court will ride;
And she that would her true love win
at Miles Cross must bide.
Happy Halloween (or Hallowe’en, depending on your spelling preference)!
In celebration, have some filkers performing everyone’s favorite traditional ballad about getting knocked up by a weird guy in the woods and having to go rescue him on Halloween before the Faerie can sacrifice him to the Devil 🙂
This version of Tam Lin is performed by Tricky Pixie, aka S.J. Tucker, Alexander James Adams, and Betsy Tinney. Lyrics are available on bandcamp.
Since I heard of this siren bright
I’m thinking about her from dawn until night
And though I’ll never be in her spell
I’m falling in love on the stories they tell
“Filk Sampler” a playlist on Spotify that I put together with help from other filkers on Facebook, focused on giving a good overview and introduction to filk.

@arachnaetheyarnspider submitted: It’s been a while since I’ve seen any SCA filk on here. How about a song about a Very Serious Ancient Science?
(Let’s be honest, it’s been a while since there’s been ANYTHING on here. I Have Become Grad School -dog mod)
Cerian Cantwr singing a song called “Alchemy,” about….alchemy.
Would you happen to know/have a link to any sort of ‘filk primer’ playlists or song recs, to send to people who are new to filk?
