Hilaritas sapientiae et bonae vitae proles.

Greetings and Salutations!

I am Hstaphath, the Official Bard of XenoCorp, and your humble host here at the XC Bard's Corner. That is Ferret over there working the bar so, grab yourself a drink, pull up a chair/stool/rock/Lyran/chunk-of-bulkhead/couch, put up your feet/hooves/paws/appendages, and please make yourself comfortable!

Monty Python: Lord of the Rings
After 4 years of work (with a 2 year break in between MP:RotK and MP:Hobbit), my magnum opus is complete. Well, right up until I snap one day and do something crazy like Monty Python: Children of Húrin... hehe...

XenoCorp Does Monty Python
These are the comedic forays that got me started on the whole "parody of a parody" career that began in August of 2001. The pure fun the XC Crew and I had in creating them is probably illegal in several states.

When Squirrels Attack
True tales of horrifying combat fought by Warrior J'inn against his ultimate nemesis. May these words of epic valor and bravery live on forever!

The Infamous Squirrel Battles

SFCIII: Wrath of Moo
One of my proudest moments and happiest memories... I had the honor of being the first to post the screenshots to "SFCIII: Wrath of Moo" on the old Taldren Forum.

The Best of XC Radio
Song parodies are something I love to do. In fact, doing a song parody was how I met up with the XC Crew so long ago. So, if you want to snag 15 minutes of fame on the Dynaverse Ten Forward Forum, just let me know what your song request is.

What the heck is a "Hydran" anyway?!
I have added this section for those Tolkien and Monty Python fans that wandered in here that are unfamiliar with either Starfleet Command or Starfleet Battles. Yes, I really did intend for that Bard up there to look like a Star Trek alien and, yes, I'm still considered "sane" by the mental health profession.

You must not think me necessarily foolish because I am facetious, nor will I consider you necessarily wise because you are grave. -- Sydney Smith (1771 - 1845)
