There's an interesting article on Bruce Pelz on File 770. It didn't mention his filk activity, so I left a comment calling attention to it, and Mike Glyer expanded on it in a subsequent comment. Lee Gold is quoted. https://file770.com/re

I think Raid insecticide is still using that series of commercials, though they may have updated some of them. Though annotating it for people who haven't seen them, and for people who don't see TV commercials, probably wouldn't be a ba

I'm filking Shall We Dance from The King And I. My mind, the lyrics, and the music don't seem to agree, though. After the line "Shall we dance", the music clearly goes "bum bum bum" (three beats, no rest). But the lyrics are "One two thre
