Devo Spice Update - 9/7/2010

Hey everyone!

Got some cool stuff to talk about.  I’ll try not to be too wordy so you can get back to your game of Farmville or whatever.

--== INTERVENTION: THIS WEEKEND IN WASHINGTON DC ==--
--== NEW LUKE SKI SONG FEATURING ME ==--
--== NARRATING AN AUDIO BOOK ==--
--== ART FOR FUMP 22 ==--


--== INTERVENTION: THIS WEEKEND IN WASHINGTON DC ==--
Those of you in or near Washington DC this weekend should stop by Intervention (http://interventioncon.com), a new convention of internet culture and media.  There’s a big focus on web comics but they’re also having some music and that’s where I come in.  Well, me, Rob Balder, and Insane Ian.

We’ll be doing a round robin FuMP concert Friday evening from 5-7.  That’s the only concert for the weekend so don’t miss it if you’re coming.  Rob also has some panels during the weekend, including one for the launch of his new graphic novel Duel In The Somme.  They’re also showing some viral videos, having a War At Innsmouth Dance on Friday night, and my friends from Cosplay Burlesque will be performing Saturday night.


--== NEW LUKE SKI SONG FEATURING ME ==--
The Great Luke Ski recently mentioned he had an idea long ago for a parody of Run-DMC’s 1993 song “Down With The King” and was planning to now complete the song.  The parody was called “It’s Good To Be The King” and was a tribute to the great Mel Brooks.  When I found out about this I called Luke and demanded to appear on the song.

I’m happy to report that Luke agreed to my demands, the song is awesome, and no harm will have to come to his cat.  The song is now available over on The FuMP (http://www.thefump.com/fump.php?id=1334) and also features the vocal talents of Bud Sharpe from Possible Oscar and Insane Ian.


--== NARRATING AN AUDIO BOOK ==--
Adding another notch in the proverbial bedpost of my voice acting career a new audio book has launched on Hub Magazine narrated by me! Marco and the Red Granny is a new novella by Mur Lafferty; author of Heaven and Playing For Keeps (http://murverse.com).

In the story, the moon is now the artistic center of the universe thanks to an alien species that can combine the senses in their artwork in a way that humans simply can’t, and hire the best artists from Earth to help forge their craft.  Marco, a struggling graphic novelist, finally lands a patronage, but finds it’s not all it’s cracked up to be, and that the only friend he’s made, a tiny old woman who’s the star of a blood sports reality series called The Most Dangerous Game, has secrets of her own.

Episode 1 of Marco and the Red Granny is now available to listen to via Hub Magazine:

If you prefer to simply read the story Mur is also posting the text on her blog here:

--== ART FOR FUMP 22 ==--
It’s been a long time since I’ve done a real illustration, and since nobody stepped up to do the cover for The FuMP Volume 22 compilation CD I figured it was time.  I can’t believe it’s taken this long for me to do one, actually.

The CD is currently in production and should be shipping in a week or so.  But if you’d like a sneak peek at the artwork I did (inspired by Insane Ian’s song MvL which appears on the CD) check out my blog post here:

Well that’s all for now!  I promise I’ll get back to working on new music shortly.  This whole house thing has really screwed me up in more ways than one.

->Later.....Spice
