Our holiday vacation is over! It’s time to get back to work. Up first: MarsCon!
That’s right, Possible Oscar is returning to our hometown convention MarsCon March 1-3, 2013 to celebrate 10 years of the MarsCon Dementia music track. Full details can be enjoyed over at marscondementia.com. We are scheduled to kick off the festivities at 9:00PM on Friday night.
To help transport and lodge this year’s slate of artists, we are once again featured on the annual MarsCon Demetia Track Fund Raiser CD set. This set features three discs of live performances from MarsCon 2102. All proceeds from sales go to subsidize the travel costs of the artists, so get over there and buy it already!
The nomination period for the 2013 Logan Awards is now open! This is your chance to get your favorite comedy music of 2012 recognized by a panel of their peers. The nomination official form is available for you to submit your favorite songs for consideration.
We had two new original songs released in 2012 that are eligible for nomination. We humbly ask that if you deem either worthy of recognition, please nominate it. Those songs are:
If you feel neither of those songs is up to snuff, by all means nominate another of our contemporaries instead. No hard feelings.
We interrupt our summer slumber to bring you this breaking news! For a few short days — 7/30 through 8/3 — the fine folks at CD Baby are doing something wonderful to help independent musicians. CD Baby is giving 100% of digital music sales to the artist without taking their customary cut. If you still have holes in your Possible Oscar collection, now is the time when your dollars can benefit us the most. Think of the children! (Seriously, think of the children. Jeff just had a kid.)
So saddle up your shoppin’ horse and trot on over to the Possible Oscar store at CD Baby to buy some music. If you already have all our music, then consider buying something from another artist. Every purchase helps the cause and validates our existence!
CONvergence is almost here. Don’t forget to come to our show on Saturday, July 7 at 8:30 PM in Harmonic CONvergence. Here are some links to keep you organized:
Our concert is scheduled against the Masquerade, so we decided to host our own costume contest. Get dressed up in your Saturday finest and be ready to participate in our POscarade contest. There will be prizes!
Below is our traditional promo poster, soon to be festooning the halls of the Double Tree hotel.
We are aware that there’s an invention called YouTube, and on this invention they show shows, or rather, videos of cats. With that in mind, we’ve been steadily starting to build up Possible Oscar’s YouTube channel to include actual stuff. We started by adding songs from our three albums, available for easy sharing. Now we also have actual video content! We’re still working on the cat videos.
Here are the latest additions:
Literally years ago, Jared entered the Contagious Graphics Free Stickers Weekly Contest. Weekly emails came and went — again, for years — without any indication that Jared was considered a winner. All of that changed last month when Jared was picked as a winner not of the weekly stickers, but of the big monthly prize of 48 Garage Sale T-shirts! Thank goodness those emails didn’t land in the spam box.
What this means is that we will have a new T-shirt available at CONvergence this year. We’ll get the shirt online for ordering shortly after we get them in stock. Per the parameters of the Garage Sale, the shirts will be in a variety of colors not of our choosing. Pricing has yet to be determined, but given our minimal production costs — not zero since our own time is worth something — we’re betting the price will be a bargain. Here’s a sneak peek mock-up of the shirt as modeled by… oh, let’s call him Sven.
