General InfoEdit

Having worked as a librarian and other jobs where organization is key, I tend to spend my time on the site trying to get things in order and accurate. I shuffle, organize, and generally try to keep things from going too higgledy-piggledy so that hopefully pages are easier to find and so that there will be less duplication. If you have a question about what to do about titling an item or some such thing, I'm a good person to ask.

Kiefer's Rules of LyricWikiEdit

  • Rule #1: Don't complicate things. (K.I.S.S.)
  • Rule #2: Remember to add to the database, not the bureaucracy.
  • Rule #3: Any formatting changes should be for the benefit of the user and usability, while not breaking any of the existing structure.
  • Rule #4: Don't begin anything that you aren't able or willing to finish on your own, but don't forget to ask for help when you need it.
  • Rule #5: Protect the integrity of the site from vandals and spammers.
  • Rule #6: Building the editing community is always top priority. (Without editors both "big" and "small", the site weakens and withers.)
  • Rule #7: Always remember that this is Sean's site. (All others borrow the site. We visit, we babysit, some of us may even be Aunts & Uncles, but it's his baby.)
  • Rule #8: If what you're doing on LyricWiki isn't fun, do something else. (Hopefully on LyricWiki, but this isn't a job & it isn't work, it's a hobby - a voluntary donation of time and skills and effort. It has to be enjoyable, or burnout will ensue.)
  • Rule #9: Listen to and love music. (Even better: Listen to and love the music while on LyricWiki. It's a reminder of why we're here.)
  • Rule #10: Remember that admins are not all-knowing, all-powerful, and omnipresent. (Although there's a rumor that Redxx is perfect.)
  • Rule #11: Set the (music) volume to 11. (An addition by User:EchoSierra to my original list...one I wish I had thought of myself!)

My Favorite Bad LyricsEdit

"YEAHHH the Matzo Virus!"

Favorite SongsEdit

Please note that I'm not saying these are the best songs ever. These are just the songs that I enjoy listening to and don't seem to get tired of.

The Top 10Edit

  1. John Mellencamp:Jack & Diane (I grew up in the Midwest. This song to me epitomizes growing up there.)
  2. Queen:Bohemian Rhapsody (Pretty much anything by Queen, really, but way before Wayne's World, my friends and I were "head-banging" to the rock section.)
  3. Yes:Owner Of A Lonely Heart (In my opinion, sheer...listening...perfection.)
  4. Pink Floyd:Learning To Fly (Ever had a dream where you could fly? This is the soundtrack.)
  5. Crash Test Dummies:Superman's Song (I'm a comic geek, and this is the most beautiful comic-related song I know.)
  6. Bruce Hornsby And The Range:The Way It Is
  7. Bruce Hornsby And The Range:Mandolin Rain
  8. Blue Öyster Cult:Astronomy (The version from Blue Öyster Cult:Imaginos (1988) is my favorite.)
  9. Bonzo Dog Band:Mr. Apollo (Amazing tongue-in-cheek masterpiece about a guy very much like Charles Atlas...you know the 97-pound-weakling-turned-bodybuilder who ran ads for his fitness program on the back page of comic books? Crank this one up and feel the rumble of the manly bass.)
  10. John Denver:The Eagle And The Hawk (I am the eagle, I live in high country in rocky cathedrals that reach to the sky. I am the hawk, and there's blood on my feathers, but time is still turning, they soon will be dry. And all those who see me, and all who believe in me, share in the freedom I feel when I fly.)
