Move On

I’ve been sitting on this for a couple of years now. It’s a filk based from Johnathon Coulton’s Want You Gone from the Portal 2 game. The reference is the book Everafter by Kim Harrison.

I tried recording it, going to keep the official recording only here, but it doesn’t sound right no matter what I do. In the instrumental versions I was able to find, the sound is very techno – considering the original is from the point of view of a testing robot. In my version, I would prefer a simple guitar. I don’t play guitar. I barely play tambourine. So uh… can’t happen.

So here are the lyrics and a raw recording of me just singing it. And I am… moving on.

Moving On

Now you’re leaving again.

I thought we’d last forever

I couldn’t see you for what you really were.

Then I fell for your tricks

And when I started falling

I found my heart falling down out of the bliss of love


You got your little life still

How is that working out?

I’ll just leave you to live it

Cuz I only want to move on.

What the hell is the deal?

You need to find a hobby

Something better then selling bits of me

You’ve ruined so many lives

I hope there is some justice

Maybe what you did to us happens right back to you

God what did I see in you?

I can’t remember now.

They say you’re Newt’s familiar

But I only want to move on.

If it were not for Trent

You’d be a rotting carcass

But I guess I have things to thank you for

I’ve learned a lot by you

Made friends with elves and demons

And found a new resolve I thought I could never know

Go live your life’s disaster

I’m only moving on

Seems you’ve got a real problem

But I only want to move on

Now I only want to move on

Now I only want you gone.



Do You Wanna Get Some Work Done?

An art deadline was missed tonight at midnight. It’s like the umpteenth time this has happened. Being as the song “Do You Wanna Build A Snowman” from Disney’s Frozen is stuck in my head, it couldn’t help but metamorph into a filk. Wrote it in a few minutes. I’m sure it needs work, but wanted to record it somewhere. Enjoy.

Um. You can play this and stuff, but all commercial rights reserved.


Do you wanna get some work done?
You know the deadline is today.
Clients are waiting by the phone
Sending emails
I bet my rep on you
And now it’s burned
I wish you would get things done!
Please fucking get some work done
It doesn’t have to be a Madonna.
(Just done.)

If you don’t get me some work done
Or at least speed up your damn pace
And stop arguing with me about deadlines
I’ll start talking to
Someone ready for a job
(Wtf everyone’s so lazy)
Shut down your video game
And finish that paaaagggeeee

Just watching the deadlines swoosh by
(swoosh swoosh swoosh)

Feral artist?
The clients know you’re in there.
People are asking where their pictures are
They say “we’re finding someone else than you”
Running out of work cause I let you in
Art reps bring work and pay
To pay the bills
What am I gonna do?

Do you wanna go job hunting?
You’d better go job hunting.
