07:02 pm - Song Sharing Circle: Mirrors and Images

Originally published at DFDF. You can comment here or there.

This year will see another song sharing circle, this time to the topic of “Mirrors and Images”.

In order to allow for more active participation we have decided to allow not only new songs written for this circle but also any old songs that are to this topic. So Thesilées “Let me be your mirror” would be totally okay. I would even go so far as to say “A thousand ships” by Katy and Yu would be okay, as there is one stanza with a mirror, but I think I would draw the line there.

New stuff can be about image as picture or image as public personality or the difference between the mirror and the image, or about bad luck by broken mirrors, or about vampires not being able to shave, worlds behind mirrors, words left upon mirrors, objects mirrored in water, emotions mirrored, twins, illusions both real and metaphorical, the moon (as a mirror to the sun), what have you. You see, there is barely room for interpretation.

Have fun and surprise me and the other listeners! And maybe even yourself ;)

We have been busy for you. You can either review DFDF 2013 with Kirstins photos or read about the Guests of Honor at DFDF 2014.

Or you could look for the picture of the future Guests of Honor among the pictures from DFDF 2013 ;)

06:25 pm - Five days and counting!
Dear DFDF attendees / Liebe DFDF Teilnehmer_innen,

it's five days until DFDF, and we're very exited, and fine-tuning our planning for the con. I'm fidding with the Advance Request Concert as I write, and want to invite you all to go forth and bring Leslie Fish's "Hope Eyrie" into your current repertoire, as the song might just show up at some time during the weekend, and if you want to sing along ... sing along!

es sind noch fünf Tage bis zur DFDF und wir freuen uns schon sehr darauf, und sind gerade an der Feinabstimmung des Programms - ich beschäftige mich im Moment damit beim ARC den letzten Schliff anzulegen und will euch hiermit alle einladen euch doch den Text und die Melodie von Leslie Fishs "Hope Eyrie" nochmal ins Gedächtnis zu rufen, denn das Lied könnte euch am Wochenende begegnen ... und wer mitsingen will: mitsingen!

If you want to practice at home ... here's a link:
Wer zu Hause üben möchte ... hier ein Link:

Hope Eyrie on Youtube

Ansonsten: Badesachen nicht vergessen!
Don't forget your swimsuits etc!
Current Mood: excitedexcited

06:22 pm - DFDF 2011 Update!
(English below)

Liebe deutschsprachige Filker,

Zur DFDF 2011 und zu unserer Internetseite gibt es einige Neuigkeiten, die wir euch natürlich gerne mitteilen wollen!

Hier eine Übersicht in Kürze:

DFDF 2011
--> am 8. Februar werden die Mitgliedsbeiträge teurer - also schnell vorher noch anmelden!
--> Auf der DFDF 2011 wird es einen Song Contest (der gar kein Contest ist) geben, zum Thema "Helden der Kindheit"

Wenn du schon angemeldet bist, dann kannst du dir jetzt Lieder im Advance Request Concert wünschen oder dich fürs Hauptkonzert anmelden ... und dein Zimmer solltest du auch vor Ende April buchen (dann läuft unser garantiertes Zimmerkontingent ab)

Und auf unserer Internetseite gibt es jetzt eine Zeitmaschine! Klick sie an und schwelge in Erinnerungen an die Conventions 2009 und 2010.

Schau doch mal vorbei!
Sib, fürs Concom


Dear Filker,

Since there's quite a bit of news regarding DFDF 2011 and the DFDF website itself we thought we'd share it with you here... :-)

DFDF 2011
--> DFDF memberships become more expensive starting February 8* - so why not join before then?
--> There will be a song contest (that isn't a song contest) at DFDF, on the topic of "Childhood Heroes" (you can find out all about it on our website)

If you're already registered, why not make a wish in the Advance Request Concert or sign up for the main concert? And if you haven't booked a room yet - the room prices are confirmed and our room block closes at the end of April - why not book it right now and be done with it?

We've also now got a time machine on the website ... click on it and travel back to the 2009 and 2010 conventions..

So, come on over and have a look!
Sib, for the concom

*yes, you will be able so register for DFDF at Cr2sc3ndo, just look for Jela or Steve to do so!
