Year-end clearance: RedSOW and Second Serenity/Firefly Pick-up Line Contest

OK, I'll bet you think I abandoned the Red Songbook of Westmarch, eh?

A New Tolkien Song Parody
To the tune of "Have A Nice Day"
Estel, to Elrond
Saturday, December 31, 2005 by Banazir the Jedi Hobbit

Why you wanna tell me how to spend my years?
Who are you to tell me I ain't got the ears?
Ada, can you hear me? Can't you understand?
Is fifty years the difference between a boy and a man?
My daddy was a knight, it's just what he had to do
Sacrificed his life to prove himself to you

Oh, if there one hope every evenin'
That my dreams all bring
It's that I won't be some mere chieftain
I'm gonna be the king!
Shining like an Elfstone, striding to the fight
Lopping off their heads, I show the uruks my might
When the elves get in my way
I say: have a nice Age
Have a nice Age

Take a look around and tell me where to seek
Yeah, Rivendell's a "homely house" if you think "men are weak"
Ask your elves to look and tell me what they see
(Those who have been brave enough to march with me)
I've gone south to Gondor, served with Fengel's son,
Looking for a kingdom
That they'll let me run



Have a nice Age
Have a nice Age
Have a nice Age
Have a nice Age

Well the Dark Lord's trying to cap my ass
I'm gonna draw my sword, gonna act my class
Well I say, have a nice age
Have a nice Age
Have a nice Age

Whatcha think? Not my best filk, but not my worst, IMHO. The filking muscles have atrophied a tad bit, peut-etre.

The Second Annual "Worst Firefly/Serenity Pick-Up Line Ever" Contest

Think you've got the pick-up line to beat all pick-up lines? If you think you can beat "fortunately for you, I didn't forget to bring my sword" or "I've got something to put 'twixt yer nethers that doesn't run on batteries", then get poetical and post your entry here! The top 5 will win icons made with your line. The top winner will get the admiration of all my LJ friends, a Serenity filk of his or her choice, and a book.

Entries will be open until midnight CDT 09 Jan 2006.
Voting will be up after that.

This was inspired by tv_elf's First Annual Bad Stargate Pick-up Line Contest,

(Betcha thought I forgot about this too, didn'tcha? Nope. I procrastinate a bit, but I get 'er done.)

Seventh Day of Christmas, following my personal LJ tradition (started in 2003):
"Give Me A New, A Perfect Heart"
Words: Charles Wesley (1742)
Music: "Overberg" by Johann C. H. Ring (1770-1846)

Happy New Year,
