I can't quite process this Voltaire fellow. I think he may be a genius. I mean. Klingon rap.

One night after one if his shows at Dragon*Con in Atlanta, he was invited to sit in on a "filk" session. Filk apparently is a convention phenomenon where musicians sing songs that have sci fi lyrics transplanted over recognizable folk melodies. He says, "There I was hearing these songs about Star Trek and I thought, damn! now, why didn't I think of this?! My love for music and obsession with Star Trek collided and I started to write Star Trek parody songs."
