about

The first time Tom's been in the deep south since the last time he was in the deep south! ConTraFlow is an awesome little convention, and there were two concerts -- unfortunately, the recorder glitched out near the end of the second (although the last few songs were mostly repeats from the first concert). That still gives you 22 songs and a lot of silly with a small but enthusiastic audience.

Tracks marked with an asterisk (*) are interstitial banter, i.e., Tom rambling again. It happens.

Track Name: Avengers' Picnic
If you go out in the woods today, you'd better not go alone -
But do go out in the woods today, no reason to stay at home -
For every superhero there was will pound on Loki simply because
Today's the day we're going to see Avengers!

The Tesseract or Cosmic Cube, it never will be enough,
'Cause Steve's naive but not a rube, and Iron Man's really tough,
The Widow's clever, Hawkeye is brash,
Thor's lived forever, Hulk will just smash --
Today's the day we're going to see Avengers!

Popcorn time for Avengers,
The mighty Avengers assemble for everyone today,
Watch them fighting aliens,
Defending Manhattan in a most destructive way,
Bashing giant silverfish,
Designed by Giger when he's drunk on Tullamore Dew,
We've never seen such an amazing superhero film before,
Nor will we again till Avengers 2!
So...

If you go out to the movie show, be bolder and do not yield,
Just armor up, and ready your bow, Mjolnir and mighty shield,
And just before you're ready to go, have Natasha stomp on Bruce Banner's toe...

And run like heck to the multiplex,
We all will scream, they brought us the dream,
They're buff, they're ripped, they had a good script,
All thanks to Joss, the movie is boss,
Maria Hill, her jumpsuit she'll fill,
With Samuel L. and Coulson -- oh, well,
It's better than mere mortals could ken,
And look! There's Thanos right at the end,
And when we're done, for shawarma we'll run,
And talk for hours how it was such fun,
Today's the day we're going to see Avengers!
