Hi, I love your blog, but mostly, I love the purpose of it. I'm a french canadian girl living in Denmark and I love in indie music scene in general, but also the dansih one... so many good bands here, it'S surprizing since Denmark counts 5.5 million people.

Dunno what "fark" is (and all my guesses are probably unprintable) but "filk" is a Science Fiction fandom term for songs with an SF theme, often written as spoofs of (and to the tune of) other songs.

Your blog (and other info) remains one of my favorite reads. Keep up the good work.
