I was planning to stay out of this one since I am so new to the SCA and do
not feel that I could render an informed opinion.  I do have a question,
however.  I recently wrote an anthem for our Shire entitled "To Tir Bannog"
and have used the melody from "The Ash Grove".  You can read & listen to it
on our Shire's website located at http://www.bulkley.net/~tor/ .  Would this
be considered a filk?  Disclaimer: The only stupid question is the one not

I would also be interested in knowing the address for the above-mentioned
website of Vlad the Purple.

Bonne Nuit!
