MarsCon 2014 Music GoH Henry Phillips, 'Smogberry Trees' crew will attend and film! -Luke Ski Update

Headlines, shmeadlines, I got yer news right *here*:

~~~

MARSCON 2014 announces:

MUSIC GUEST OF HONOR HENRY PHILLIPS

and "UNDER THE SMOGBERRY TREES"
DOCUMENTARY FILM ABOUT "THE DR. DEMENTO SHOW"
PRODUCTION CREW WILL BE ATTENDING/FILMING AT MARSCON 2014!

What do you want me to do about it?

Since the late 90's, comedian & musician Henry Phillips has been performing his brilliant satirical songs at comedy clubs all across the nation. As well the nationally syndicated radio program "The Bob & Tom Show", he has also appeared on "Comedy Central Presents" and "Jimmy Kimmel Live". His award winning semi-autobiographical comedy film "Punching The Clown" is currently available on Netflix and iTunes. He's released a handful of albums over the years, which include such hit songs from "The Dr. Demento Show" as "On The Shoulders Of Freaks", "Talking Again", "Girlfriend", "Alone Again", "L. A. Dream", and fan favorites "Sweet Little Blossom Of Mine", "Fresh Out Of Blues", "Guitar Pill", and "Jerkin' Around". We're very excited to have Henry Phillips as MarsCon 2014's Music Guest Of Honor. (http://www.henryphillips.com)

Wind up your projector!

We are also incredibly psyched to announce that the crew from "Meep Morp Studios" who are currently producing the documentary film "Under The Smogberry Trees: The True Story Of Dr. Demento And Mr. Hansen" will be attending and filming at MarsCon 2014. MarsCon's comedy music track, named the 'Dementia Track' after former Guest of Honor Dr. Demento, has grown to become the biggest annual gathering of Dr. Demento Show fans and performers over the past decade, and we're ready to show the Meep Morp crew how we celebrate our comedy music fandom! They'll be doing a Q&A on the main stage and talking about production on the Demento documentary, so get your questions ready! (http://www.underthesmogberrytrees.com)

Both Music Guest Of Honor Henry Phillips and Meep Morp Studios' attendance are being brought to MarsCon 2014 due to a very generous donation from the comedy music streaming internet station, Dementia Radio, in particular this year from benefactor Wayne 'WildCard' Garmil. So please thank him and Dementia Radio for sponsoring MarsCon's Music Guests Of Honor for 3 years running. (http://www.dementiaradio.org).

Currently pre-registration for a weekend badge for MarsCon 2014 is only $40.00! The price will increase on November 1st, which is 10 days from now. So get your badge before Midnight on October 31st, and spend the extra money you saved buying your badge early on Halloween candy! (http://marscon.org/2014/register.php)

Many more comedy music performers for 2014's Dementia Track will be announced in the weeks to come, so stay tuned for forthcoming updates. For now, get your badge and get psyched for the "Smogberry
Trees" documentary crew and Music Guest Of Honor Henry Phillips at MarsCon 2014!

- 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

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
