Five stars for being absolutely awful...as is par for the course in 'Filk.'
|AgentOrange - 2008-04-16 |
I'm conflicted, is it so awful it deserves one star, or just awful enough for five stars?
I couldn't sit through it again, videos on PoETV need some longevity.
|SARS - 2008-04-16 |
this gets 5-stars for expertly representing poetv's resident cat lovers. They are these people: thinking they're hip and cool-ironic - but in reality: just a fatty and fag, rolled into one.
|dr_rock - 2008-04-16 |
These people simply deserve to die.

FILK IS FAIL
If you don't know what filk is, be fucking grateful. Filk always deserves one star.
Just trying to find out what filk is on the internet makes filk horribly annoying. All the definitions are hand-wringing and pretentious.

WHY DON'T THEY JUST STAY IN THEIR BASEMENT'S?
|Stog - 2008-04-16 |
Kill all filkers
|Phil - 2008-04-16 |
"getting myself 1starred as an object lesson" tag almost got this 5 stars, lolcats quickly got this down to 1.
|StanleyPain - 2008-04-16 |
Wow....easily 5 star evil.
|Meerkat - 2008-04-16 |
Seriously needs a party hat.
|andru strange - 2008-04-16 |
poetv's new mascots?
|Modern Angel - 2008-04-16 |
No, I'm sorry. This is awful but it's one star awful
but they're talking about cats! celestial creatures the stream pure silk from their assholes... beautiful and superior beings that make our lonely, autistic lives somewhat livable. anything and everything that even mentions cats must be five starred... if not, i think i'm supposed to call you a fag or something.
I'm gonna invent a machine that allows me to punch you through my computer.

Filk is for scuzzy longhairs and fat women as seen in the video, for creepy neckbearded IT guys who spend their weekends at gatherings, clad in airbrushed dragon shirts and strumming ineptly on guitars while singing sub-sub-sub-Weird Al parodies about Capt. Kirk
You're absolutely right. It's supremely sad and evil and I am genuinely embarrassed for these people.
But I thought we were voting on 'evil'...or did I miss a meeting?
In retrospect, I would have at least given this 3 stars except my palpable disgust and rage over this display ledd me to one star it. though it does neatly encapsulate all that is wrong with geekdom and beardism.
|theSnake - 2008-04-16 |
This is the worst thing I've seen in months here. I have no idea who FILK is, but apparently they are all things wrong with the internet and so called "nerd humor" in musical form.
I know this may be overused but this deserves to be said:
Ah fuck, I can't believe you've done this.
The first time I heard of the term, I instantly equated it with 'felch.' The first time I heard the 'music', I was justified in my dyslexic stupor.
All filk is is just taking a known song and re-doing the lyrics to something else "funny." Technically, this makes Weird Al songs "filks" or those stupid "political humorist" people like that guy on PBS who makes up stupid political lyrics to songs like "Mary had a little lamb."
Like any other dumb, beardy, marginalized hobby filks went from something silly, casual, and stupid to "Serious business" once the internet stepped in and the result is what you see before you. What people need to understand though is that there's this horrifying, massive sub-culture of filks now. It's become like otakus or furries or any of that shit.
Oh, but I should have clarified. A proper "filk" is done with acoustic instruments. Again..."serious business."
YOU ARE WRONG. Weird Al is not filk. Ray Stevens is not filk. Filk is beardy and full of dorky in-jokes and foppish looks by definition.
I suppose that's true to a certain extent.
yeah. "legit" filk is almost entirely about nerd shit, while your weird al and your ray stevens and your two live jews only occasionally touch on such things, if ever. they are kind of the successful ancestors of filkers, who are sort of the horrible mutant CHUD-babies that resulted from people who are *less funny than Weird Al* thinking "fuck yeah man, i can do this! EXCEPT ABOUT DRAGONS AND CAPTAIN KIRK."
The only way it could be worse is if it was *all* about Jesus. HERE COME OUR SAVIOR HE GET CRUCIFIXION HE GET YOUR SALVATION HE GET OH GOD COCKS IN MY MOUTH OUT OF NOWHERE
Guys, the word 'filk' comes from 'folk', as in folk music about 'fiction'. Wikipedia probably will say it is a PORTMANTEAU
I will say it is a BLUBBERY SHAME
|fluffy - 2008-04-16 |
This is terrible in every possible way.
which is why it should be rated highly but unfortunately portal of evil is in perpetual opposite day.
A good clip is one you can come back to. I will never ever watch this again. Garbage Day and A Handbag are the best clips here for this very reason.
if this was youtube, i would totally agree with you.
yeah, if this was youtube, I would totally agree with you too.
I mean, not andru, the other one.
ratings are extremely important.
|positively - 2008-04-17 |
I didn't even watch this yet I feel confident that this rating is accurate.
|baleen - 2008-04-17 |
I HATE THESE PEOPLE SO MUCH
|ztc - 2008-04-17 |
Quintessence of PoE.
|Hooper_X - 2008-04-17 |
oh god the intartubes has come alive and started its own awful children's show.
i do like that they are clearly the Most Internet People ever. giant fat lady with little boy voice and really reedy skinny dude trying and failing to be johnny depp with the beard and the skinny and the fedora. they have written a filk about the lolcats. clearly, they, and we, deserve some kind of medal for hitting this level of human disaster.
that medal is five shiny stars. suitable for gouging your own eyes out with.
WHY CAN'T THE AWESOME PARTS OF THE INTERNET BECOME REAL INSTEAD?! i DEMAND a magic amulet that makes me a shitty rapper. barring that, a magic amulet that makes incredibly jewish girls rap at me. the downside is the increased likelihood i will be murdered while taking out the trash.
|revdrew - 2008-04-17 |
It's very rare when a clip on here causes me actual, physical pain.
|Harveyjames - 2008-04-17 |
She can not has cheeseburger.
The youtube comments on this look like they've been 4chan-invaded.
|KnowFuture - 2008-04-18 |
Gotta admit, it's evil.
I'm gonna put my 5 stars up real quicklike and get the fuck out out here and go watch Yahtzee's new review or something.
|Torture the Artist - 2008-04-24 |
broken weeping children raped and dying in a mine shaft
|Keefu - 2008-04-29 |
I feel sort of bad for posting this

Mister VanDriessen should stick to teaching.
|kennydra - 2008-06-26 |
Hideous in every possible way.
|Pie Boy - 2008-07-07 |
Everytime you filk, god kills
OH FUCK IT I HAET EVERYTHING
|Keefu - 2008-07-23 |
This submission is my horrible horrible filky masterpiece.
|dueserpenti - 2008-09-02 |
I wish there was something stronger I could do to express how much I hate this.
|detc - 2009-01-14 |
Fuck you, CERN. Your invention of the internet is the root cause for this video's existence.
|Old_Zircon - 2009-04-06 |
Well, I still can't even make it past his hair toss a few seconds in, so 5 stars.
|Camonk - 2009-05-20 |
Somehow the resubmit is even more pretentious and awful than the original. Oh god it's so bad. Ah fuck.
