My Least Fav’rite Things: PART 3 (Parody of “My Favorite Things”)

It’s baaaack!

I’ve just composed a third installment in my series of parodies of “My Favorite Things!” I hope you’ll enjoy this latest lighthearted tribute to my personal pet peeves as much as earlier audiences seemed to enjoy part 1 and part 2!

An Especially Memorable Evening At The Coffee Phix

I wasn’t planning on writing another blog post about the Coffee Phix Cafe’s Open Mic series so soon, but tonight felt…special. Everyone with whom I shared the stage was talented, but what I found particularly moving was that all were clearly passionate about their respective arts. I truly & thoroughly enjoyed the evening, and so I’d like to thank each of you here by name for your contributions (in order of your first performances tonight):

  1. Annette
  2. Benny
  3. Donald
  4. Sophie
  5. Marty
  6. Nicole
  7. John
  8. Ryan

Please keep in touch and continue doing the great things you do! (And please feel free let me know if you’d like any details about yourself added to or removed from this post.)

Some More Of My Least-Fav’rite Things (Parody of “My Favorite Things”)

As those of you may recall who have either followed this blog for awhile and/or read my chapbook, Smorgasbord (HINT: Please follow my blog & buy my book! I promise you won’t regret it!), one of my poems from awhile back is a parody of “My Favorite Things” from “The Sound Of Music”. My version is titled “My Least-Fav’rite Things”, and I’m happy to announce that my first new poem following my recent downtime is, in addition to its being a second parody itself, a sequel to the earlier parody! I’ve named this one “Some More Of My Least-Fav’rite Things”:

“Hello McZee” (Parody of “Hello McFly” by Relient K)


If that sounds familiar, then you may already be acquainted with Microsoft 3D Movie Maker and its host, McZee. If that is not the case, however, please explore some of the many available online 3DMM resources before reading the following 3DMM-themed song lyrics, which parody “Hello McFly” by Relient K (The original song can be heard in the video at the end of this post):

Hello McZee

Among The Roots

Greetings once again! On this, the official first day of Spring, I am proud to present my latest original song lyrics! I have not yet composed any music to accompany these lyrics, but I believe that this piece is capable of conveying the intended tone without assistance.

I am both pleased and morally obliged to credit the late Walkin’ Jim Stoltz, whose name you may recognize from three of my past poems which he also inspired, for writing and recording the song “Old Man From the Mountains”, which directly inspired this piece. Before you begin reading, please take a moment to visit his website and admire his legacy: Walkin’ Jim Stoltz’s Website

Here, without further introduction, is my new song, “Among The Roots”:

“Magic: The Gathering” (Parody of “To The Gathering Again” by Walkin’ Jim Stoltz)

Greetings! As promised, here is my first regular post of 2014, in which I am sharing my latest song parody. The original song which it parodies was written and recorded by Walkin’ Jim Stoltz, a man whose name you may recognize from the poem I wrote when he passed away. Anyway, my version is about one of my other hobbies besides poetry: the trading card game “Magic: The Gathering,” and, in particular, the Friday night tournaments at my local gaming store, Mr. Cards & Comics (Be sure to check out the image I’ve posted below the poem, too!) :

AOL (Parody of “Into The Night” By Santana Ft. Chad Kroeger)

Today was an emotionally strenuous day for me and my family (if you’re friends with me on Facebook, you may know why). Here, in deliberate contrast, is a comical song parody which I wrote as a birthday gift to my brother several years ago, and which I recently edited. If you are not familiar with the song I am parodying, please scroll to the bottom of this post (below the parody) and play the embedded video.
