I know many of you love The FuMP (,short for Funny Music Project).  For those of you who are unaware, The FuMP is a hilarious troop of assorted comedy musicians.  If you are a regular listener to Indie Nation, I am certain you have heard at least some of their music.

I am sorry that I got word of this event after the early registration deadline.  However, I think it is still a steal at the regular price…. especially if you take into the account that Dr. Demento will the guest of honor. This year’s fest will be in Wheeling, IL on June 20-22 and registration is 45 dollars.

Concerts, panels and games! Seriously, how can you beat that?  For more information and to register go to FuMPFest.com.  I am sure that once you check out the schedule, you shall be as enticed by the event as I.

After Ever After

POSTED ON March 14th  - POSTED IN Comedy, Entertainment, independent music, parody, pop, site, videos

Have you ever wondered what happened to the Disney Princesses, after Happily Ever After? How about why Ariel was in such a rush to get out of the ocean? No?

No worries, now you don’t have to, in a video that is nothing short of genius, Youtube sensation Paint gives you a glimpse into the lives of the Princesses after the credits roll.

Street Magic With A Powerful Twist

POSTED ON March 13th  - POSTED IN Community, Entertainment, Public Service

There are so many bad things that happen in the world today, that when you see something genuinely good, there are almost no words to describe the beauty.

You do not need to speak the language, to see the warmth,beauty, love, and kindness of strangers. Watch as a young street magician, makes a homeless mans day. The smile on that mans face will surely bring tears to your eyes, as it did mine. After finishing his trick, and making the world just a little bit brighter, the young man simply walks away.

There is a story that has been around for many years, about a wise man sitting on the beach, when he notices a child that looks like they are dancing on the beach. He has to see the joyousness just a little closer, but when he approaches the child, he sees that the boy is not dancing, but instead  throwing starfish back into the ocean. The wise man asks the boy “Why are you throwing them into the ocean?” The boy responds “The tide is going out and the sun is getting hotter, if I do not save them, they will surely die” The wise man thinks upon this for a moment and then says “There are miles and miles of beach, surely you do not believe you can make a difference?” As the young boy picks up another starfish returning it to the ocean, he simply replies “It made a difference for that one.”

How do we go about the monumental task of changing the world? We do it by reaching out, with kindness, hope, and love. Touching one heart, one soul at a time.
