How about a parody challenge to get the non-visual ball rolling? Can't Post

I was going to just do this myself - but where's the fun in that? Talking to dernwyn I used the title of this song (from Flower Drum Song), which led to the inevitable idea of a parody. Give it a shot - why do you (or don't you!) think you're Going To Like It Here?

I am Going to Like it Here
I'm going to like it here.
There is something about the place,
An encouraging atmosphere,
Like a smile on a friendly face.

There is something about the place,
So caressing and warm it is.
Like a smile on a friendly face,
Like a port in a storm it is.

So caressing and warm it is.
All the people are so sincere.
Like a port in a storm it is.
I am going to like here.

All the people are so sincere.
There's especially one I like.
I am going to like here.
It's the father's first son I like.

There's especially one I like.
There is something about his face.
It's the father's first son I like.
He's the reason I love the place.

There is something about his face.
I would follow him anywhere.
If he goes to another place,
I am going to like it there.

I'm "Getting to Know" these boards! [In reply to] Can't Post

*applause* "father's first son", eh? How appropriate for a B-girl! Sly I noticed a little picture-posting going on, elsewhere - these new boards are getting quite a "christening"!

Now, here's one I worked up while out shopping this afternoon (BJ's Warehouse, of course, where else does one find enough food to keep two teens plus pets satisfied Tongue). A little take from "The King and I":

Getting to Know Them

It's a rather modern saying,
But a true and honest thought,
That if you want to be posting
These Board formats, you must be taught!

As a TORnsib I've been learning -
And testing as I post -
And I'm trying to be an expert
On the Boards that I love most:

(spoken) The new One Ring message boards!

Getting to know them,
Getting to know all about them,
Getting to like them,
Getting to hope they like me...

Getting to know them,
Putting it my way, so nicely,
They are precisely
Lembas to me!

Getting to know them,
Getting to feel free and easy
When I am posting
Getting to know this new way

Haven't you noticed
We are all still wild and crazy
While loving all the beautiful and new
Things we're learning we can do
Day by day!


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Still 'round the corner there may wait
A new road, or a secret gate...

Here's my farewell to the old boards, for what it's worth: [In reply to] Can't Post

We Are The One Ring

Strangers have come
Time after time
Critiquing the format
More annoying than mime
Crashes and stalls
We've had a few
We've had our share of stats beamed into space
To make us blue

chorus of TORnadoes:
But we mean to post on and on and on and ooonnn...

We are The One Ring, my friends
And we'll keep on posting
Past the end
We are The One Ring
We are The One Ring
Calling all users
Back to The One Ring dot net

On the seventeenth
The fat lady sings
We'll trade RPG
For Gossamer wings
It won't be easy
Saying goodbye
But a new era's about to begin
Prepared on the sly

We are The One Ring, my friends
And we'll keep on posting
Past the end
We are The One Ring
We are The One Ring
Calling all users
Back to The One Ring dot net

It's taking its bow
Its curtain call
To you who bring us "edit", "search", off-topic and moot boards -
We thank you all
Through eel-infested waters
It's no pleasure cruise
Though some of us may be nervous about leaving this place
Still, how can we lose - ?

chorus of TORnadoes:
For we mean to post on and on and on and oooonnnn...

We are The One Ring, my friends
And we'll keep on posting
Past the end
We are The One Ring
We are The One Ring
Calling all users
Back to The One Ring dot net

We are The One Ring, my friends
And we'll keep on posting
Past the end
We are The One Ring
We are The One Ring
Calling all users
Back to The One Ring ...

Based on Queen's "We Are the Champions", with a verse added.


TORn – where everybody knows your name!
And J.R.R. Tolkien’s middle names… and the name of his publisher’s son … and the name of Aragorn’s great-great-great- grandfather on his mother’s side… and what Frodo’s name almost was…

Well, I've been feeling like an immigrant [In reply to] Can't Post

so I based my little parody on the old immigrant song "Green Grow the Lilacs".

Green grow the mallorns all sparkling with dew.
I'm lonely, old TORn boards since parting from you.
But by next Fiesta I hope to prove true
And change creaky old boards for the shiny and new.

I'll give it a go since I've not written a parody in quite a while. [In reply to] Can't Post

I'm rusty, but here goes nothing...

Sing to: "You're Beautiful" by James Blunt

"Old boards were brilliant.

Some thought them brilliant
Some thought them poor.
I saw an admin.
Her posts obscure.
She posted 'bout switchovers.
She seemed that she was mad.
But I won't lose no sleep on that,
'Cause she's got a plan.

There's new TORn boards.
There's new TORn boards.
There's new TORn boards, it's true.
OT I adore, modding's no more
Let us all ring in the new,
And bid the old boards adieu..

When we say good-bye,
No one can deny.
There's a really good chance that we might,
F'n cry,
And I know that we won't see her again,
But we shared a forum that will last 'till the end.

There's new TORn boards.
There's new TORn boards.
There's new TORn boards, it's true.
OT I adore, modding's no more
Let us all ring in the new,
And bid the old boards adieu

There's new TORn boards.
There's new TORn boards.
There's new TORn boards, it's true.
There must be an admin with a smile on her face,
When she decided that an update was due.
But it's time to face the truth,
You deserve a big thank you."

Mine [In reply to] Can't Post

Both as a farewell to the old boards, and a wish for the new ones.

To the tune of "I've Grown Accustomed to Her Face" from "My Fair Lady"

I've grown accustomed to this place.
It almost makes the day begin.
I've grown used to signing in
Morning, night and noon.
The smiles, the frowns,
Its ups, its downs
Are second nature to me now;
Like breathing out and breathing in.
I was serenely independent and content before we met;
Surely I could always be that way again-
And yet
I've grown accustomed to its look;
Accustomed to its folk;
Accustomed to this place.




Promises to Keep: a novel set in 19th Century New Zealand.

The Passing of Mistress Rose

Do we find happiness so often that we should turn it off the box when it happens to sit there?
