Also, joining us for a Virtual Q&A: 
JON “BERMUDA” SCHWARTZ!

Drummer of “Weird Al” Yankovic‘s band for over 40 years, and author of the new book “BLACK & WHITE & WEIRD ALL OVER: The Lost Photographs Of “Weird Al” Yankovic ’83-’86”

For much of Weird Al’s career, one man has been by his side, photographing and documenting the fun and weirdness: longtime drummer Jon “Bermuda” Schwartz. Since meeting Al on September 14th, 1980, the fateful day they recorded Al’s first international hit parody song “Another One Rides The Bus” live on the air on “The Dr. Demento Show”, Jon has taken more than 20,000 images of Al in his element: on tour, in the studio, and on video sets. We’ll be asking him about his book, what things were like on the last couple of tours, and where you can get the best chili in Burbank.

The Q & A will be hosted by two “Close Personal Friends Of Jon”, The Dr. Demento Show’s Most Requested Comedy Music Act of the 21st Century, the great Luke Ski, and his bestie partner in “Weird Al” fanaticism since 1998 and fellow MarsCon attendee since 2003, Stephanie Wild!

If you would like to SUBMIT A QUESTION FOR JON, you can do so by clicking the link below and filling out our question form: https://marsconcomedy.wordpress.com/contact/

FuMP STUFF:


- "PUT A SANTA HAT ON IT" BY TV'S KYLE - PUPPET VIDEO BY LUKE SKI!
Something I have been planning to make and give Kyle as a Christmas gift since 2013, but only got around to doing this past Christmas. I made a new puppet music video for the TV's Kyle song "Put A Santa Hat On It", which turned out to be perfect timing since Kyle released his long awaited Christmas album titled after that song! I made the video with help from the super awesome Erika Haynes and Garrett Snook! Check it out!

ANIMATION INDUSTRY CAREER NEWS:


- "DIENNE AND DARIUS IN 'DAY TWO'" ANIMATIC COMING SOON

I have been developing these two characters since August of 2019. I have written a script for a scene with the two of them and another character, and myself and a few talented generous friends recorded dialogue for that scene. I hired Chris Mezzolesta to edit the audio and do the sound design for that scene to give it "Cirque du So What?" levels of quality. Today I am starting to draw a storyboard animatic to bring this scene to life, so I have new content for my portfolio page showing off my current skill level, and to take the first big step of putting together a potential pitch for the animated comedy TV show I would like to make with these characters. I am very excited to finally present them to the world, so be on the lookout in the coming weeks for my announcement of the YouTube debut of "Dienne And Darius In 'Day Two'".

- DIENNE & DARIUS DO THEIR VERSION OF TIKTOK'S "BAKED BEAN THAT"!

“MIGHTY MAGISWORDS” STUFF:

- A SUDDEN MOSTLY-COINCIDENTAL INFLUX OF VAMBRE ART & COSPLAY!

KRISTEN BAILEY:

Back in October of 2017 when I was still working at CN on "Mighty MagiSwords", I asked amazing artist Kristen Bailey if she would do a commission of Vambre for me. She said yes, but because she's a very busy artist it would have to wait until she could work it into her schedule. Every few months we would touch base about it, but the stars would not align in our favor. This past July, Kristen was able to work me in and get started on something for me. I had sent her some images of cute anime girls posing to give her an idea of the kind of pose I wanted for Vambre. Coincidentally, all those images were at the beach, so Kristen took the art in that direction. In one of her rough drawings she had Grup popping up in the foreground, and as she neared finishing it she added Prohyas surfing in the background. She was able to get the image done in time for me to frame it and give it to Kyle as a Christmas gift. She even took care of sending the image to the printer and having them ship it to me. Thank you once again Kristen for making this amazing piece, and just being an all-around amazing awesome person! Check out her at her site linked below.

ANA PATY SIMG:

Ana Paty Simg cosplays as tons of characters from "She-ra and the Princesses of Power", "the Owl House", and more! Several months ago she asked what other characters she should cosplay as, and I suggested Vambre. I also did a drawing of her for her birthday. So when my birthday came around in January, she surprised me with her Vambre cosplay! Thanks Ana! 'Tis a TRIUMPH!!! You can see her cosplays and art at her Facebook page.

BUT WAIT, THERE'S MORE!

Sometime after she posted that Skullivan filmed a TikTok of Grup doing a "blind react" to @TheOneTrueBlu's time-lapse TikTok:
