Nerd and Music can be a bad thing

Buddy Holly was nerdy and musical, but still cool. I like to pretend Nerdbilly is occasionally about cool music and slight nerdiness. The following is story shows why this is a volatile combination. Here nerd and music react like like a proton torpedo shot down the thermal exahaust shaft of the death star, if you know what I mean.

NPR : Filk Music: Odd Voices for a Digital Generation: "What has 30 legs, five laptops, four kazoos and one Yoda? A filk singing circle. Filk is a little-known genre of folk music composed and performed by science-fiction fans, usually revolving around sci-fi and fantasy themes.
These so-called 'filkers' share a lively online culture online -- and in the real world, some entertaining and slightly bizarre get-togethers.
Some songs riff on stories and characters from popular movies, TV shows, or games -- Star Trek, Star Wars, Battlestar Galactica and Dungeons and Dragons are popular launch pads. Other tunes come from deeply weird depths of the songwriter's psyche."

Check it out. It does get worse. There is audio.
