Babylon Grease – fixomnia

Babylon Grease

Babylon Grease: The Musical

The inspiration for this bit of randomness is threefold: one, the unhealthy obsession that my childhood best friend and I had for the Travolta/Newton-John movie; two, the merging of Jeff Conaway’s career-bookends, “Keneckie” and “Zack Allen”; and three, the sudden auditory hallucination of Ambassador Delenn singing, “Appropriately Devoted to You”. After that, there was no sleep to be had until the whole thing played out. True Greasers will see there’s still a lot of territory to fill in.

The disturbing part is the number of lines that needed little filking…which says a lot about the alienation of teenagers in the 1950’s, if nothing else!

Anyway, enjoy.

Knights of the Round Station – fixomnia-scribble

Filk dump.


With thanks to the Monty Python crew…or apologies…

We’re knights of the round station,
We welcome every nation
We work for peace and liberty
Despite our reputation.
We live well here on Babylon,
Even with all the rabble on.

We’re knights of the round station,
We’ve plenty a mutation
Which helps a bit when given scripts
That stretch imagination.
We’re all alert on Babylon:
We sleep with our communicators


(“Go ahead, C&C”)

In war we’re fair and prudent
If but a tad impudent
Between our quests we entertain guests
And scan them though we shouldn’t.
It’s a busy life on Babylon,
Lucky us, we’ve got Sheridan…

Patriot – Beth Kinderman

Oh no, I can’t believe the things I’m hearing in my voice
As it turns out, if you want power you have to give up every choice
Once I could have kept myself safe on the floor
But my shoes are too tight and I don’t dance anymore
Guess my one chance now is to turn away
And hope you can forgive me someday

This is about Londo Mollari, but I recommend it even if you haven’t watched Babylon 5, because it definitely fits a number of characters. “Patriot,” by Beth Kinderman.  Download here.

Beyond the Rim – Beth Kinderman

I’m clinging to your memory, when the light has gotten dim
So not things shall pass beyond the Rim

“Beyond the Rim,” by Beth Kinderman, “a tribute to the many people involved with Babylon 5 who have passed away long before their time.”

5 Years – Tom Smith


5 Years (Babylon 5) by Tom Smith
Hot like Ivanova and Talia,
we’re gonna Draal ya,
and then we’ll kick a little Zathras.
Yesterday all the Narns were freed
but there’s still something keeping hold on Centauri.
We’ll get a room on Z’ha’dum,
the ship’ll zoom and then go BOOM (shakalaka)
‘cos there’s always one tomorrow.
