Wo ist der Bahnhof?!

Filkcontinental audience

(Above: our audience at Filkcontinental in Germany this past weekend)

Updated 10:30 am with links to other con reports (see bottom of page). Also *** Samurai seems to having problems again, so please send e-mail to my Gmail account for now, thanks. Hopefully my other e-mail is just queued up and not lost. :-(

Home! Jetlagged but happy; our Germany visit was *hugely* fun. Many thanks to the Filkcontinental convention committee and everyone at the convention...Allison, Jodi and I were quite overwhelmed by the welcome we received (and the amount of chocolate! :-D ).

Much more later when I've had a chance to unpack and catch up on work and e-mail, but feel free to check my growing collection of Filkcontinental photos on Flickr. I'll be gradually adding photos to this set over the next week or so, from our visits with Ju & Harry in Frankfurt, the convention itself, and our visit with Katy & Steve in Hamburg. I'm sure Allison will also be posting a report and photos in her Livejournal.

Explanation of the entry title: Urban Tapestry debuted my newest song in our concert. Here are the lyrics. The chorus is a 3-part bit which is fun for us to sing. Fun for others too, apparently...we were SO tickled when people at the convention kept singing bits of the chorus back at us the rest of the weekend. And when we were asked to perform it in the Request Concert on Sunday, everyone sang along. :-)

Update: I've scanned the rough music notes for the song, for those interested.

Con reports/photos I've found online so far:
