In my misspent youth, I spent too many hours writing lyrical parodies for AP English as well as my own twisted amusement. Every so often, an idea gets in my head, and I can’t contain it. The words start to spill out, and before I know it… I’ve rewritten a song.
This time, I blame a few tweets from Scott Roche, Doc Coleman, and Dave Robison. These guys are part of the teams at their respective regularly scheduled podcasts, The Galley Table (Scott & Doc, with Zach Ricks, Jeff Hite, JP Losier, and Laura Nicole) and the Roundtable Podcast (Dave Robison and Brion Humphrey), and there was a comment made about two Tables with microphones…
My apologies. I am a child of the 80s & 90s pop culture, and I can still sing all of the words to the “Fresh Prince of Bel Air.” Just replace those words with the following, and shake your head sadly at my amusement.
Now this is the blogpost all about how
Some scripts get whipped, flipped upside down
And I’d like to take a minute, ’cause you know I’m able
To make a small request of the hosts of Two Tables
Up, up and above flying high on the skies
Captain Ricks, Scott Roche and dark lord Jeff Hite
Bringing stowaway Doc, Laura, number one Gypsy,
A Beowulf cluster, and coding ninja JP
Then a couple of guys started another thing
Dave and Brion found some writer-guests for interviewing
Twenty minutes with an author, an hour workshop story pitch
With the caveat that their advice could be either gold or bullshit
I’ve listened to them both, Tables Galley and Round
On both shows there’s witty banter and advice to be found
If anything I can say that to both you should subscribe
But I think that for one time, both tables should collide
So I’m on the last stanza of this auditory fable
Asking for an episode, a Write-Around-the-Galley-Table
A show for the fans, just the first, not the last
Of collaborative Tables in an epic podcast.
