Boston/Cambridge Kokonvention, March 13, 2010

It starts at 11:30 a.m. blog time (12:30 Boston time). No doubt the Kokonventioneers will find a way to report in during the proceedings; in any case, we’re sure to hear from them eventually.
 

 
In honor of this momentous event, here’s a reprise of the song Robert wrote for last year’s Southern California Kokon (to the tune of the Beatles’ “Ballad of John and Yoko”):


Headin’ to the big KokonVENtion,
Musers from all over the place.
The man with the pie
Said*, “I won’t ask you why
You’ve got Pantone 219** on your face.”
Cake, you know it ain’t easy.
You know how wild it can be.
The way things are goin’
They’re gonna bunnify me.

No one looks the way I imagined.
Everybody’s friendly but shy.
They’re funny and nice
But we can’t break the ice
Until someone calls out, “Let’s have some pie!”
Cake, …

Can’t believe we’re all here together,
All those kids I met on the threads.
The man with the pie
Said, “You’re throwing too high.
See, the crust is going over their heads.”
Cake, …

Musers always make an impression.
People all pretend not to see.
The folks in the crowd
Said, “They’re laughing too loud,
And they don’t look ‘mostly harmless’ to me!”
Cake, you know it ain’t easy.
You know how wild it can be.
The way things are goin’
They’re gonna bunnify me.

*[TMFASudoRandom thinks “says” would make more sense here than “said.” We like the disorienting effect of the mismatched tenses, but if it bothers you, you have permission to sing the song whichever way you prefer.]
**[Pantone 219 is an industrial code for a shade of fuchsia very close to hot pink.]
