New-ish filker. No albums yet, but since last FAWM I've written about 30-odd (sometimes VERY odd) songs, most of them originals. Stephen King is my main fandom! (I also dabble in Star Wars, at least so far.)

You can call me Griff. If I've followed you, we probably met through FotLR 20, 21, or 22 this past year.

50/90 goals this year: 20 new Stephen King songs, 25 new funny/silly songs (because I tend toward ose and I need to fix that). I doubt these 45 songs will overlap at all, but you never know...

I'm on #filkhaven Discord as Griff (Discord: blankslate_12815).

(I used DrBlankslate as my name when I first started on FAWM.)

Re: Concealing the origins of a song--that's totally up to you. There's pros and cons to doing that, not least of which is that acknowledging a song is an homage to someone else's work can point interested people toward listening/watching/reading that other work. However, I wanted to say that I think this song is strong enough to stand on its own, without any explanation or reference, which is amazing because a lot of homages to other people's work do need people to understand at least a little about that work to be understandable or to be properly appreciated.

Thanks for your comments on “1981”. I guess time distorts one’s perspective and I’m not sure the world as a whole was better but for those of us who were young-ish it sure felt better.

thanks for your comments on the wordsmith collab. i was surprised that nobody else went to the obvious minor for the repeat of "in the rain"

Thank you, Griff, for the very kind comments about Names On a Wall. I think @greengirl really captured something there that still can resonate today and even with folks like you who were born later, but still experience the heartbreaking echoes of that war as a slice of history and its imprint on society.

I smiled out loud when you referred to it as a 'project'. I suppose it is, but it's one that evolved entirely organically. I was just trying to clear the cobwebs from my head.

Now we're here, I am genuinely amazed at how genre diverse all the different versions are. And how *good*.

Hi, Griff. I'm very happy that you enjoyed Names On A Wall. Thank you. It's interesting that you were only 3 yrs old during this time. It happened in a very pivotal time in my life when my friends were being drafted and put in mortal danger and there were angry protests everywhere, it seems. I'm glad the song made some of that more real for you, and that you took the time to let us know.

Thanks for your comment on my run at "It's Hard to Start a Fire in the Rain"— I hope we get more and more versions!

@jibbidy34 - The comment was well-deserved! Your song is about a universal emotion, and it was a perfect start to my morning. Keep up the great work! (Nice to meet you too - you've got a follower now, because I want to hear more!)
