    This Fantasy World, also known as the Dungeons and Dragons song, is off of our album "Beta Testing 1-2-3."
    Worst.Superpower.Ever, Hollywood Raptor and No Easy Way (the Cthulu song) are songs we wrote for our song-a-week project. This is the first "studio" recording of these songs, and the first recordings ever with Aubrey on them!
    Spock Impersonator is another one of our song-a-weeks. This is the first "studio" recording of Spock Impersonator, and is also a SPECIAL EXTENDED EDITION.

he had the shiniest of hair and he walked into the room with an authoritative air his carefully shaped eyebrows so severe and you could barely even tell where the prosthetics met his ears I fell in love with a Spock impersonator from his ears down to his phaser and his sweet communicator thought my search for love was at an end but being highly logical did not make him a very good boyfriend When I first saw his furrowed brow I knew the ideal man had come and found me somehow I mean, what else could I think When he looked me in the eyes and told me prune juice is a warriors drink I fell in love with a Worf impersonator from his forehead to his baldric and his badge communicator I thought my search for love was at an end but being strong and angry did not make him a very good boyfriend -- Oh why did I come to this con this day has been nothing but a rollercoaster of emotion I don't have the time or money to wait in line for leonard nimoy but look over here! what an interesting boy… I fell in love with a Q impersonator which seemed like a bad idea even 30 minutes later I thought my search for love was at an end but he transported me to another dimension and played psychological games with me and my friends.

would you rather have flight or invisibility? Would you rather be a brave blind man with the ability to see would you like to be able to rapidly change size or would you rather be able to squirt blood out of your eyes that would be the worst superpower ever the worst superpower ever that would be the worst superpower ever would you rather stop time, or never need to breathe would you rather have your one weakness to be a really well-known thing what if you were lactose intolerant but could make things taste like cheese? or if you had the power to induce a slight fatigue. that would be the worst superpower ever the worst superpower ever that would be the worst superpower ever would you rather have an extra hand or run real fast and far or would you like to be really rich and drive an awesome car would you rather be able to create an invisible chair? or the ability to always predict what someone else will wear that would be the worst superpower ever the worst superpower ever that would be the worst superpower ever

You're not the right shape and you're not the right size you don't get along with others but you need to realize That the actors in the movies are not what you're sposed to be but you are great the way you are you are you, that's best, you see We've all been looking for role models and turned our eyes to hollywood but that's not where to find them look to yourself, yes, that is good It's ok.. velociraptor don't be sad.. velociraptor you're the size of a turkey not a lion you can't turn a know and don't have friends to rely on the movies have created an unattainable expectation the raptors in those films were an fictional creation don't judge yourself too hard velociraptor you are good the way you are velociraptor

You've made a generous offer and I wish I could accept it But I'm afraid to say you've asked me on imperfect information I'm a danger to you and others and while I'd love to be your girlfriend There is something you should know that introduces complications There's no easy way to say this but I think that I'm a vampire My teeth are getting pointy and I stay up late at night I don't think that you could take it if I turned into a vampire so you'll have to find a different date to prom. I have mixed feelings about this entire situation Now that I know what's happening I do feel some relief I hate to have to hurt you, but I know that you will thank me when my horrific and powerful transition is complete There's no easy way to say this but I think that I'm a zombie I'm feeling rather sluggish and getting bored with normal food I don't think that you could take it if I turned into a zombie so you'll have to find a different date to prom. You might think that there's a different explanation for these symptoms in a normal phenomenon You may say that I'm getting strange ideas from the books I read or forums I post on But those are your excuses Crazy stories you come up with because you're scared This relationship is over I can't be with you; you should give thanks that you've been spared There's no easy way to say this but I think that I'm Cthulu I am longing for the ocean and so very very tired I don't think that you could take it if I turned into cthulu so you'll have to find a different date to prom. please just ask a different girl to prom
