MarsCon 2019 - 'Legends in our Own Minds'

Nearly Final Program Schedule

(as of February 24 2019 22:30 CST)

This is the very-nearly-complete schedule. Be aware that changes to this schedule will likely continue throughout MarsCon.

Where Can I Find Events?

Mainstage

2nd floor, Ballroom III/IV
Mainstage is the place for big events such as Opening/Closing Ceremonies, Masquerade Cosplay, Charity Auction, media guest talks, concerts, stage performances and musical jams!

Masquerade Lounge

2nd floor, Blue Heron
Over the years, programming in the Masquerade Lounge has grown substantially, from almost nothing to over 20 hours of costume related panels, demos and discussions. There will be plenty of programming related to costumes (the regulars & some newer topics) as well as prop making panels.

Free Mars

2nd floor, Cardinal Perch
Free Mars will feature miscellaneous programming, i.e., hard sciences discussions, talks about our favorite sci-fi/fantasy movies and television series, gaming, Klingons, music, and as many other fannish topics as we can fit into the space.

Re(a)d Mars

2nd floor, Eagle’s Nest
Re(a)d Mars, exclusive to MarsCon since the early 21st century, will focus mainly on literary discussions and readings, but there will be a touch of art and other SF media, as well as speculative science.

Anime/YA

RPGs (Roleplaying Games)

2nd floor, Owl Overlook
RPGs will play host to Sword of Air MarsCon Chapter with Burl Zorn of Source Comics and Games.

The party continues its long trek to the North to answer a call for help. They have had a number of encounters that have toughened them up in their long journey. Be prepared for anything! Will they arrive in the semi-civilized area of the Lost Borderlands or will they wander endlessly through the lands of the South? Only the players will have an effect on what becomes of them on the journey. 3.5 D&D, all are welcome. Come in at one level lower than the current players. Prepare a first level character and you can level up accordingly if need be. Heroic point buy of 25 as per DMG in Adventures section. Feel free to create one at the table. We may have some pre-generated characters to hand out as well. Game goes on during the entire convention. You can drop in and out as you wish. If you must leave in the middle of battle, we will run your character and do our best to keep you alive and write down what rewards you received on your character sheet. RPGs will play host to Sword of Air MarsCon Chapter with Burl Zorn of Source Comics and Games.

A/V Room

Please, if you do not want your children to see “R” or “NR” rated films, please keep them out of the A/V room at the time they are shown. We do not have time to check to make sure there are no underage people watching the films. Also some “NR” films might not be suited for children, if you have any questions please ask at the A/V room’s Film Crew. (Film Crew will have ribbons on their badges that say “MarsCon Film Crew”.)

A regular feature of MarsCon since 1999, Krushenko’s this year serves up panels and discussions about SF in literature and other media in the daytimes, and conversational SF-related parties in the evenings. “Krushenko’s is accustomed to serving alien guests!”

What doesn’t work to jog or instigate inspiration? We’ve all heard of writers’ retreats, is it possible to force inspiration? What squelches your inspiration (big picture—general things, not specific tiny events or things)?

Writing Diversity Right
Re(a)d Mars (III - Eagle’s Nest) — Friday 08:00 pm
Done right, art (including fiction) can give readers a connection with an unfamiliar place, push away stereotypes and further understanding. Done wrong, it perpetuates stereotypes, offends readers familiar with the source material or culture, is tainted by colonialism, and comes off as a cheap and poorly constructed attempt to include diversity.
With: S.N. Arly, mod.; T. Aaron Cisco, Kathryn Sullivan
Welcome back, J.G. Hertzler!

Insane Ian Concert
Mainstage (Ballroom III/IV) — Friday 09:00 pm - 30 minutes
Insane Ian has been called “the Weird Al of videogames” but he keeps asking his mother to stop saying that, as he writes songs about other nerdy stuff too. Ian hit a milestone in his career when he had the #1 most requested song of 2015 on The Dr. Demento Show, the name-mangling Brit-tribute, “Benedict Cumberbatch”, sitting firmly atop the Funny 25. His most recent albums include the Marvel Cinematic Universe/Beatles mash-up album “Meet the Avengers” and his 2 disc concept epic “Internet Famous”, and he also is one half of the bloopcore quirkhop sensation Scooter Picnic with his pal TV’s Kyle. Outside of that, Ian currently hosts weird taste test videos on his YouTube channel. Maybe you can watch him eat something weird this weekend (but likely not). He is also a member of this year’s Dementia Track Team.

In 2014 he married his long-time girlfriend and frequent on-stage vocalist / dinosaur-outfit-wearer, Lindsay Smith, aka LINDZILLA, who also worked on Mighty MagiSwords as a character designer! He also co-hosts the bi-monthly animation podcast Kyle & Luke Talk About Toons with the great Luke Ski and is one half of the duo Scooter Picnic with Insane Ian, which he describes as “bloopcore quirkhop” as if those words have meaning. Silly cartoon man.

My Parent’s Favorite Music Concert

Steffeny “Steffo” Messinger refers to her pseudonym/moniker “My Parents Favorite Music” as the video game/pop culture influenced music she writes and produces independently.

Power Salad Concert
Mainstage (Ballroom III/IV) — Friday 10:45 pm - 30 minutes
By day, Chris Mezzolesta is a professional voice-over artist whose voice can be heard in commercials for Kaopectate and Menards, among others. But when the moon is full, he gets out the vacuum cleaner and frightens his cat beyond consolation! His song “Letter From A Cruise Ship (Hello Mudduh, Hello Faddah! 2013)” won a Logan Award in 2014, and his song “Amazon Drone” won him another in 2015, however it’s his 30 plus years of making sketch audio and comedy music make him the wise elder of the scene, with recent Dr Demento Show hits like “Gas Station Disc Jockey” and “Smells Like Herb Alpert”, both from his first vinyl release (now sold out, but still available virtually) “Vaudeville”. Mostly, however he just yells about tile and honey mustard, much to the delight and confusion of those around him. He is also a member of this year’s Dementia Track Team helping the Chair Luke Ski and Vice-Chair Carrie Dahlby get MarsCon stuff done.

Steve Goodie Concert
Mainstage (Ballroom III/IV) — Friday 11:15 pm - 30 minutes
For as long as songwriters and musicians have been plying their creative wares, it’s been understood that music is a funny business. For comedian/songwriter Steve Goodie, a slight twist might be more apt: “Funny is a music business.” Lately, Goodie’s been working on a one-man autobiographical musical/multi-media production, the latest incarnation of which he’s calling, simply and characteristically, “Steve’s Big Dumb Show.” He debuted the project in Nashville in 2016, took it on the road for a month of nation-wide house concerts this past Summer, and is currently booking dates for similar tours in Summer and Autumn 2018. As Ty Hager, a long-time friend and collaborator, puts it: “He’s like a f***ing creative Energizer Bunny, and makes all of us lazier musicians look bad. That’s why no one likes him.”

Just because you know how to write doesn’t mean you know how to give useful feedback to other writers. Being a writer also doesn’t necessarily mean you already have tough skin and can handle abuse (nor should you). What are the keys to giving useful critiques?

At Dragon*Con 2004, Dr. Demento declared “the great Luke Ski” to be his radio program’s “Most Requested Artist of the 21st Century”. Since then, Luke held onto that title by having his nerdy comedy songs on The Dr. Demento Show’s annual year-end “Funny 25” countdown of his most requested songs of the year for 16 years in a row, with a whopping FIVE of them reaching the #1 spot, including his most recent hit “Candybars”. Luke Ski worked as a storyboarder, writer, and voice-over artist for Cartoon Network’s MIGHTY MAGISWORDS, created by TV’s Kyle. Luke has been the Chair of the MarsCon Dementia Track since its inception in the mid 2000s, and delights in making Ian write all this copy so he doesn’t have to do it himself. ;P

A Real ETO Flies By
Free Mars (II - Cardinal Perch) — Saturday 05:00 pm
We didn’t make this up. A giant cigar-shaped Extra Terrestrial Object buzzed through the solar system last year on a hyperbolic orbit, gently tumbling, looking (to the extent we could see) very much what one might expect a big derelict spacecraft to look like. It even appears to fire jets! While natural explanations are preferred, it seems eerily like something out of science fiction. Whatever its origin, it is one more piece of evidence that no planetary system is an island; whether dust, rocks, comets, rogue planets or alien visitors the exchange of stuff between stars may happens more often than some might think. Could that include life?

Filking is a fannish tradition, active since the 1950s, when early fans gathered in hotel rooms for late-night singing sessions at the occasional science fiction convention. While filk music commonly has a science, SF or fantasy theme, filkers have been known to write filk songs about a variety of tangentially-related topics. Bring your voice. Bring your instrument if you have one. Bring your own lyrics, or grab a songbook and join in the singing.

The Affairs of Wizards
Re(a)d Mars (III - Eagle’s Nest) — Sunday 12:00 pm
Wizards, and magic users of various names, are prevalent in fairy tales, folk tales, and fantasy. What purpose do they serve? How do we make them and their magic believable to a modern audience? How much of the process of magic needs to be explained and how much is best left to the reader or viewer’s imagination?: How do you make your wizards stand out as something new and interesting, and not just another Gandalf or Dumbeldore knockoff? Who does this well? What tropes have been overused and need to be buried under a really large rock?

The Library Bards Concert
Mainstage (Ballroom III/IV) — Sunday 01:00 pm - 30 minutes
The Library Bards claim to “transform Top 40 songs into the nerdy versions they should have been in the first place”, and do they ever deliver! The dynamic performances of Bonnie Gordon (ABC’s The Quest; voice of R. Mika in Street Fighter V), and Xander Jeanneret (TBS’ King of the Nerds; voice of the Announcer in Divekick) have become a staple in the new Comic and Pop Culture Convention scene, and the Bards bring life to the main stages of Cosplay Contests, Panels, and Concert performances. When not doing voicework or filming for their various shows on the Geek and Sundry network on Alpha (Shield of Tomorrow for Bonnie, Sagas of Sundry: Madness for Xander) this pair of Hufflepuffs travel the US thrilling crowds with their exceptional harmonies and unchoreographed choreographies. “These two are awesome-sauce and their hilarious concert is not to be missed.” ~ Luke Ski

Jeff Whitmire Concert
Mainstage (Ballroom III/IV) — Sunday 02:00 pm - 30 minutes
Jeff Whitmire is a late bloomer in the comedy music world. Despite writing lyrics for almost 40 years, he has waited until now to release his edgy, nerdy parodies upon unsuspecting audiences. Jeff’s parodies cover a wide range of topics including celebrities, Star Wars, horror movies, growing old, and the most horrifying topic of all… home ownership. Jeff hails from deep within Amish Country, PA. He is both a devoted Star Wars fanboy and avid Broadway fan. When he is not writing parodies, Jeff is working on a musical with aspirations of seeing his work on Big White Way. He remembers vividly not being able to sleep one Christmas Eve and being soothed by the great tunes on the Dr. Demento Show and specifically, one “Weird Al” Yankovic.
Currently Jeff is also in the process of putting together his first album. Jeff’s work can be heard on a growing Bandcamp page at jeffwhitmire.bandcamp.com. He also posts low budget videos of his parodies on his YouTube channel https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC2FIe_4E8aZKKx4UIW6OMEw. Follow Jeff on Twitter: @JeffWhitmire1

The FuMP Jukebox Concert
Mainstage (Ballroom III/IV) — Sunday 02:30 pm - 30 minutes
In the history of the MarsCon Dementia Track, we’ve had over 50 different comedy music acts perform, and unfortunately there just isn’t enough Main Stage time to give everybody a 30 minute main stage concert every year. That’s why we added to the schedule a show called the FuMP JUKEBOX, in which some of our returning regulars and new faces from the Funny Music Project website & the FuMP Sideshow who didn’t get main stage concerts this year will have a chance to get up on stage and do one of their songs for the awesome MarsCon audience.
