A Fan of Funny
I’m a big fan of funny music. Weird Al is just the tip of the iceberg. One artist in particular really gets me and my fangirl lifestyle, and that’s Mikey Mason. He performs at sci-fi conventions and GenCon and I never miss an opportunity to see him.
My favorite of his songs is [Not Quite] the Chosen One. It’s written from the point of view of the guy who rides behind the hero and takes care of all the mundane tasks like polishing the boots and feeding the horse. It was the inspiration for a short story I’ve written – working title The Unicorn. It’s out on submission to an anthology that is sidekick themed. I think it’s some of my best work so if the anthology turns it down I’ll self-pub it.
Anyway, this post is for Mikey and all the joy he’s brought me over the years. Please check out the body of his work on BandCamp and have some laughs.
