She has Kittens and is not Afraid to Use Them
An Interview with Sarah Donner
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.

2014.08.25 – Tech Net News and Opinion
Brian thought it might be a good idea to try and break the news up into more organized groups. After only one show’s worth of hindsight, I would have to agree that it seems like a great idea. It certainly seems to encourage more conversation from the chat room and I already know it made it much easier on the post edit.
We opened with some Sarah Donner. They were live tracks recorded with her permission at this year’s 2014 Gen Con. The tracks were Going Under and Fossil Girl You can find out more about her 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.
