- LUKE SKI DOES GUEST STRIP FOR WEBCOMIC "FROG RACCOON STRAWBERRY"!
http://dummcomics.com/2013/10/11/by-helperton-the-great-luke-ski/

Speaking of Kyle, last Friday he posted the guest comic strip I did for his webcomic "Frog Raccoon Strawberry"! It's something I've been wanting to do for the past 6 months, and Kyle's busy schedule recently led him to ask for some fill-in one-shot strips, so I jumped at the chance, much like a frog would. Or a raccoon girl in a frog suit would. Anyway, go check it out, it won't confuse you too much, and it has pretty art and funny jokes that I drawed and wroted.

- LUKE & CARRIE'S BAD RAPPORT
Episode #092 - Ceiling Fan Aficionado

This Bad Rapport kicks off with a review of the inaugural episode of the "Kyle & Luke Talk About Toons" podcast by Jered “Mr. Tuesday” Perez, who also joins Luke in a recap of this year’s Archon. This week marks the 4th birthday of Bad Rapport, but we’re saving all that kind of mush for the next episode. For now, Carrie recounts her recent trip to the Twin Cities with her husband Josh and Alex the uber-toddler while Ken stands nearby. Then Luke presents her with a gift and gives us an update on his much ballyhooed ‘mixtaping’ project. We also have comedy songs by Nuclear Bubble Wrap, Rolf Harris, and some Halloween goodness from the Nightmare Before Christmas, MC Hammer, the Fat Boys featuring Robert Englund, and Schaffer The Darklord, whose new album “Sick Passenger” is an incredible mix of hip-hop, comedy, storytelling, darkness, and redemption. The sooner you go to his bandcamp page and buy it, the better. Episode length: 2:39:05

- DEVO SPICE DOES KICKSTARTER FOR HIS NEW ALL "DOCTOR WHO" ALBUM!
http://kck.st/1gtL4Ct

To celebrate the 50th Anniversary of "Doctor Who", big-time Whovian Devo Spice is working on a CD called "I Am The Doctor", which will contain one comedy song about each of the 11 Doctors, and finish with the title track "I Am The Doctor" which he released at the FuMP .com in 2011. If you'd like to pre-order the album, you can do so via his Kickstarter campaign, and if you're feeling generous, you can donate more and get some nifty prizes! So go check it out before you get caught in a bubble dimension, or some other wibbly-wobbly, timey-wimey stuff.

- "WHEN YOU WISH UPON A DEATH STAR" MUSIC VIDEO!
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sb0HmsPEt68

After weeks of non-stop drawing and editing, at long last, the official music video for "When You Wish Upon A Death Star" has been finished and posted to my YouTube page! It's in the same style as the "Marvel Poppins" video, but with some new editing tricks to make the illustrations move, and bunch of new visual Disney/Star Wars jokes added to make it even more epic than this Logan-Award-winning piece already was. Seriously, I racked my right arm working like mad to get this video done in time for GenCon Indy, so please, go check it out, and share it with your friends on Facebook, Twitter, and any other social media you frequent

He will be joining us for the weekend giving presentations, playing funny music, signing autographs, and joining in all the FuMPy fun that we have planned.
