An Interview with Sarah Donner
2014GenCon-Musician-SarahDonner4

Sarah Donner – Live at Gen Con 2014

If the musicians at Gen Con have anything in common, it could only be that they are all unique.  Sarah Donner is one fine example of such, having her own special feline, geek, funny personal style, twist and brand.  Not only does she do songs about cats,  but specifically about Schrödinger’s and, check out her latest video at the end of the interview notes, which is Tesla themed.  Seriously how could geeks like us not love this stuff?

Not only did we manage to catch up with Sarah Donner for an interview but she was also nice enough to let us record her live.   Keep it tuned here for when we release all the Gen Con stuff.  Also, if you ever get word that she is playing near you, be sure and go see her as you will not be disappointed. I was lucky enough to catch up with Sarah at a coffee shop across the street from the con. Listen it to as we talk and hit on the following and more?

Join us as she tells us about:

  • When she started playing
  • “Angsty female songs”
  • How she uses comedy
  • of course, cats, science, geek and other inspirations and influences
  • The Anatomy Coloring Book
  • How many albums so far
  • Being on the road
  • Her thoughts on the new media order
  • What would she call her genre
  • Who does she think she sounds like
  • Our thoughts on genre
  • Her advice to those who desire to do what she does

Sarah has recently done a video with the help of The Oatmeal.  It is Tesla themed and the cause is to help to fund raise a Tesla Museum.

The Great Luke Ski is a multi-talented man.  He is energetic, entertaining, genuine and hilarious. He does stand up, music, cartoons, collects everything, is a member of The FuMP and gave us his time for an interview.   

Luke Ski is Dr. Demento’s most requested artist of the 21st century. Replacing the earlier top-requested, Weird Al. He has also won Logan Awards for Snoopy the Dogg and When You Wish Upon a Death Star. He does a podcast, Bad Rapport with fellow FuMP member, Carrie Dahlby. He is a regular convention performer and this year would be his 20th performing the Gen Con in Indianapolis.

You can read more about Luke at his About Page. You can also listen in as Luke and Lumpy discuss:

The Great Luke is a regular to many cons, according to his website:

San Diego Comic-Con, Star Wars Celebration, Dragon*Con, WorldCon, NASFIC, Creation’s 40th Anniversary Star Trek Convention, GenCon Indy, Origins, Nerdapalooza and many more. He also is the chair of the comedy music track at MarsCon in the Twin Cities (marscondementia.com).

If at all possible, I suggest you catch up with Luke Ski when he is on the road.  He also often works with others such as members of the FuMP.  This year at Gen Con he did a Friday Night Live show which included many other comedy musicians and had Whitney Avalon perform a few at another show he did at Gen Con this year.  Of note,  Whitney Avalon and Jonathan Hurley won a Logan award, Outstanding Comedy Music Video, for That Doesn’t Make Sense.

A G33kery Rhyme

A Nursery Rhyme Turned into a Geekery Rhyme

Gen Con 2014

Gen Con 2014

Gen Con is a huge event.  There is certainly no shortage of fun to be had at the event.  In fact, there is soooo much to do at the event it is impossible to take it all in.  One of the nicer things at the con is the Family Fun Pavilion area.  You can even play a game, The Cheese Weasel Conquest, while you explore the various exhibits.

In my opinion one of the best exhibits in term of being family oriented was G33k & Company.  While I made it a point to interview all of the Family Fun exhibits which participated in The Cheese Weasel ConQuest, I feel that this exhibit was likely the kewlest of the bunch.  Listen in as an attendee reads what I am going to call a Geekery Rhyme.  (Her son even celebrated his birthday at the event.)

These rhymes are the creation of “Mother Geek”, Diane Presnell. You can find Diane Presnell and her company on the web at:

Kittens, Music and General Geekery

I honestly can’t decide whether this lady is easier on the eyes, ears, soul or brains.  Quoting her Twitter account, “I have kittens and I’m not afraid to use them”.  Honestly, what geek could not like some one who love cats and sings about physics.  Sarah Donner is one of the many talents that will be performing at the 2014 Gen Con.  Check out her video below and follow her at the links after the video.
