Welcome to the Rock-n-Roll Circus! My head's been full of ideas lately, so expect more filks shortly after these opening selections.

By the way, a one-man circus isn't as entertaining as the three-ring variety. *hint*hint*

First, apologies to the Rolling Stones:

Largo-sensei (Jumpin' Jack Flash)

(Junko:)
I was dragged out to a game arcade
And I howled at screwin' with the PTA
But it's all right now, in fact it's a game!
But it's all right now, with Largo-sensei it's a-time to play!

(Ping:)
I was shot by a crazy, grinnin' bish
To be wanted is all that I ever wish
But it's all right now, in fact it's a game!
But it's all right now, with Largo-sensei it's a-time to play!

(Erika:)
I was drowned, I was locked up for schoolboys' dreams
My own man left me and my tears came in streams
No one knows that I'm more than this idol gleam
I've broke limbs and left them there to bleed
But it's all right now, in fact it's a game!
But it's all right now, with Largo-sensei it's a-time to play!

Largo-sensei, time to play
Largo-sensei, time to play
Largo-sensei, time to play...
Just... I'm sorry...

J(apanese) Schoolgirl (Brown Sugar)

Rail-thin waitress brings a couple meals
Finds little schoolgirl dressed in tight t-shirts
She's got earblades and that makes it alright
(Make sure you plug her in before midnight!)

J-schoolgirl, how come you mosh so good?
J-schoolgirl, just like a robot should

Fan service - old fanboy's blood runs hot
Writin' for the girl Piro-sensei has forgot
Her posse tells yeh this ain't alright
(They came to see me just around midnight!)

J-schoolgirl, how come you draw so good?
J-schoolgirl, just like a fangirl should

J-schoolgirl, how come you play so good?
J-schoolgirl, just like a young girl should

My fanservice may not be Sareth's kind
But with some Yuki it helps me unwind
I know Fred-rin likes things pure and white
(Glad he didn't see me just around midnight!)

J-schoolgirl, how come you dance so good?
J-schoolgirl, just like a young girl should
I said yeah, I said yeah, I said yeah - wai!
Just like a fangirl should!
Yeah, yeah, yeah - wai!
Just like a schoolgirl should!
Next up, with apologies to The Who - "Baba O'Riley!" (known to those out of the loop as "Teenage Wasteland").

Fanboy Homeland
Dedicated to those of us much too far from Tokyo...

Out here in the sticks
I hunt for my pix
I kill myself to get my manga

Oh my dear seiyuu
Someday I'll meet you
But now I'm many miles from Tokyo

Don't cry, don't raise your eye
We'll see our fanboy homeland

<Eiji, come today!>
<We've found our girl of grey>
<Come tomorrow, we'll meet at Anna Miller's>

The exodus is here
The great actress is near
I hope I see her before she gets too famous

Fanboy homeland
I'll see my fanboy homeland
Fanboy homeland
Oh yeah, fanboy homeland

I'll be homebound!

Ah, mass creativity. Congratulations on your imminent record, WO. I'll catch you one day, you rogue.

My WHO seems to be missing, so I'll go with Aerosmith.

Games Over Ether (Toys In The Attic)

At a Cathode screen
More than code.
Shots explode
Just one mode.

Loosing the tensions we keep inside
Loosening knots as the brain elides
Only one focus to bear in mind
Now there's just ammo to find

More than code.
Shots explode
Just one mode.

Games! Games! Games! Over Ether!
Games! Games! Games! Over Ether!
Games! Games! Games! Over Ether!

Screens!
More than code.
Shots explode
Just one mode.

Loosing the tensions we keep inside
Loosening knots as the brain elides
Only one focus to bear in mind
Now there's just ammo to find

More than code.
Shots explode
Just one mode.

Games! Games! Games! Over Ether! [To Fade]
Plastic Case (Big Ten Inch)
Sung by: Largo

This girl don't need no stuffin'
Assets that would take first place
But she never told me nothin'
Till I opened that plastic case

'Cause it doesn't need a single tool
Doesn't need a single tool
When you buy a plastic case
You don't even need basic tools

I popped the housing open,
Put the jumper in its place
I wasn't even hopin'
I could get in that plastic case

But it doesn't need a single tool
Doesn't need a single tool
When you buy a plastic case
You don't even need basic tools

A, A, A new game was her decision
So I went to the disc replace,
But she filled my field of vision
And I forgot that plastic case

Even though it doesn't need a tool
Doesn't need a single tool
When you buy a plastic case
You don't even need basic tools

Some divine direction later
Felt the urge to leave that place
Just a red-haired invader
Got to forget that plastic case

But it didn't use a single tool
Didn't use a single tool
When you buy a plastic case
You don't even need basic tools

That doesn't read quite as perversely as the original, but if you look, you might find things...

I've been listening to a lot of the Clash lately, so how about some punk?

Tohya Calling (London Calling)
Apologies to the Clash

Tohya calling - to the faraway foes
Come to the islands - you'll leave here in throes
Tohya calling - from the Evil Cave
Come down here you rivals, to dance and rave
Tohya calling - now don't laugh at us
All you little psychophants of teenage lust
Tohya calling - say we ain't got no skills?
I'm guessing 'sensei' is off his pills!

The zombies are coming, some 3v1l's going down
Engines stop running and the cops are pullin' out
Unscheduled riots, but I have no ph34r
Tohya's behind it a~ll - worship your mistress!

Tohya calling - to the great teacher's class
Forget it, sempai - we're weaker than glass
Tohya calling - upon the zombies of death
Quit holding out - endure another breath
Tohya calling - and I don't wanna SHOUT
But when she was talking, I saw you runnin' out
Tohya calling - say evil can't cry
Except for that one with the yellowy eyes

The zombies are coming, some 3v1l's going down
Engines stop running and the cops are pullin' out
Unscheduled riots, but I have no ph34r
Tohya's behind it a~ll - worship your mistress!

Ow! Ow! Ow! Ow!
Ow! Ow! Ow! Ow!


(Now get this!)
Tohya calling - yeah, I read it, too
An' you know our theories? Well, some of it was true!
Tohya calling - from the top of the page
Thought yer a fan, see now your a slave!

I never felt so much a' like a'like a' like...

Original lyrics
If we're moving, I'll move down to Texas, where three men made a lot of facial hair into something more than just a statement of laziness.

Apologies to ZZ Top

City of Gaming (Planet of Women)

Stuck in this city 'cause my slush fund's low
I need a good way to make a lot of dough. (To get out)
I spent the whole weekend turning pasty and poor.
Bought a lot of games, I want more and more.

City of gaming, Oh, yes
It's mecca for gaming, Oh yes
I won't leave my room

They got fine pixels and some decent screenshots
Then they give you more till you pay a whole lot
And you can't get away 'cause the city is a billboard
You look in the sky, advertisements by the horde

City of gaming, Oh, yes
It's mecca for gaming, Oh yes
I can't leave my room

I can't leave the city, can't pay to fly away
But why would I leave it, I can just pay and play.
I don't need no sleep or a sense of smell
Livin' on Top Ramen, what the hell, it's the

City of gaming, Oh, yes
It's mecca for gaming, Oh yes
I won't leave my room
Don't want to leave my room.

Sorry I can't be more story related, but gaming is so easy to write for and I'm struggling to understand Foucault for a class on Monday, so bah.

I've had these two beauties (more or less) sitting on my hard drive for months, but never got around to posting them. Apologies to the Mighty Zep.

Never Party with Bad Company
{Misty Mountain Hop}

Walkin' through Yoyogi the other day, baby

What do you, what do you think I saw?
Hordes of zombies prowlin' through the street some missing arms and limbs said,

"Hey, boy, do you wanna rock?"
And you know how it is-
I really don't know what I musta smoked, whoa oh hoh
So I asked them if I could play along

I played guitar and we jammed to "Plastic Case" and I was feeling

Felt their skillz were legit
Just then a policeman stepped up to me and asked us said
"Please, hey, would we care

"To show a permit, show permits" - well you know
They asked me to stay for games on their '64, hoh hoh oh
They said that their friends had Goldeneye, ooh ooh ooh ooh

Right then an undead girl came up to me and asked how she looked

"And baby, baby, baby, do you like it?"
There I sat, nearly puked like a dog in the yard, smilin'

Ah, I'm not trying to fight it
"You really don't look like you're rottin'," hoh hoh oh
"I know that it's just a lack of brain," ooh ooh ooh ooh

So I ran out to the streets right then, thinkin' I better

I better bleach out my eyes, whoa-oo-oh yeah
Undead chicks really don't care, really don't care, don't care, really don't
Whether, whether you're dead or 'live
So I learned my lesson 'bout zombie parties
So I'm packing my bags for the Dallas skyline
Where the living party
Out in my home where the living play

Ooh ooh ooh ooh, ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh...
I wish I had known, I wish I had known
I've had these two beauties (more or less) sitting on my hard drive for months, but never got around to posting them. Apologies to the Mighty Zep.

When the Server Breaks
{When The Levee Breaks}

If we keep refreshin', server's goin' to break
If we keep refreshin', server's goin' to break
When the server breaks we got no one to blame

Damn ol' monkies trip up Makoto-rin
Damn ol' monkies trip up Makoto-rin
Now if I need a mod I gotta use P.M.
Oh fsck, oh fsck, oh fsck


Don't it make you feel lame
When you're tryin' to post your mind
Then the forums go kaput?
If your postin' canned spam
You got no worth to you
We oughtta turn you into a newt!
Bai, bai, bai


Postcount won't save you, broadband won't keep you online - no
Postcount won't save you, broadband won't keep you online
When the server breaks, vet'ran you'll end up brined

All last night searched for an alternate host
All last night searched for an alternate host
Bitchin' about my fanfic that I cannot post, hidoi~
Bai, bai, bai

Reset, resetin' Makoto, resetin' Makoto
Sorry but I can't kill threads
Goin' down, goin' down now, goin' down
Goin' down now, goin' down, goin' down...
