I truly believe derivative works can be incredibly innovative. The Sci Fi Songs blog is full of this kind of awesome creativity. My current favorite? “George R.R. Martin Is Not Your Bitch“, which is a sung version of a famous post Neil Gaiman wrote defending Martin’s slow delivery of his next Song of Ice and Fire novel. My next favorite? “Unicorn Pegasus Kitten“.
