Here, have some facts!
- I have been writing parodies of song lyrics as a hobby since I was 8. My first one was about Final Fantasy II/IV, and was truly, embarrassingly awful.
- The third CD I ever bought was Weird Al’s ‘Bad Hair Day.’
- Despite the somewhat skewed distribution of song-topics on this blog, I am actually a fairly negligent comics reader. In fact, up until college, I actively detested all superheros other than Batman and the Ninja Turtles.
- I care deeply about the representation of women in popular media, and this will definitely figure in some of my posts. I welcome discussion – and disagreement – in the comments, as long as it stays respectful.
Any parodies I post are solely for my own enjoyment, but look, if you want to actually hire me to do this, have your people call my people.
In my day job, I’m a linguist at the University of Iowa.
