When I sat down to write something for this year, I knew I wanted to bring something from my experiences of the Dublin Worldcon. Not necessarily the con itself, but to bring in a theme of Swedish filk, where fandom isn't a great and wondrous thing, but where we together work to make it so. I then found Joe Hill's Down in the Old Dark Mills. As is my wont lately, I have borrowed liberally from both the original song—Down by the Old Mill Stream (Youtube)—and Joe Hill's lyrics.

I guess my new lyrics went a different direction than I first intended, but I still think the theme of the new and the old fandom is something worthwhile.
All my Joe Hill filks.
