After a co-worker recommended it I decided to go to Penguicon 2013 yesterday. It was awesome! By far the coolest part was getting to meet legendary filk (sci-fi / fantasy folk) musician Tom Smith who, as you might expect from a folk musician, is even better live than recorded. I only had $10 in cash on me but it was exactly enough to buy his #1 live CD (Homecoming: MarCon 2005). His often comedic music ranges from ballads about beer, sci-fi, Babylon 5, Dune, Lord of the Rings, and Harry Potter to amazing songs about wanting to grow up to be Peter Lorre, Winnie the Pooh being possessed by Cthulu, and even the official theme song of Talk Like a Pirate Day (yeah, he's that guy).
