Time-traveler T-shirt, 2nd Fund Raiser goal, Facebook, and more MarsCon 2014 Dementia Track news!

FUND RAISER HIT ITS INITIAL GOAL! SECONDARY GOAL: $500

Thank you so much to everyone who bought the album & ordered the new logo t-shirt! Thanks to your generosity, we’ve raised the initial goal of $1,000 to cover the hotel room costs for our out-of-town, non-Guest-Of-Honor performers! Huzzah and hooray! :D

Our secondary goal is to raise an additional $500. This is to reimburse myself for other Dementia Track expenses that I have paid for out of my own pocket, including the dealer room fees for ‘Table 27′, the printing of the Fund Raiser CDs, screenprinted logo t-shirts, new signage, and other expenses. So if you haven’t ordered the 4-hour long 2014 album on CD or MP3 full of live concert tracks from MarsCon 2013, please consider picking up this year’s collection. It is available along with all of our previous year’s collections in the Fundriaser Shop.

ORDER THIS YEAR’S DEMENTIA TRACK CARTOON T-SHIRT NOW!

MarsCon 2014′s theme is “Time is the key”. So, I drew all the Dementia Track participants as time travelers from fandom and pop-culture and arranged them on a T-shirt. (see the image at http://tinyurl.com/MC14DTshirt ) You can get the shirt from Dementia Radio’s page at Spreadshirt: http://dementiaradio.spreadshirt.com . Remember, we will not have this t-shirt for sale at the convention itself, so if you want to have one to wear at the convention, you need to order it by about February 14th to ensure it gets shipped to your home in time.

Please note also that nobody (besides Spreadshirt) is making any money off of these shirts. They are not a part of the Dementia Track Fund Raiser, they are just being made because the fans wanted nifty shirts to wear. Special thanks to “Blasted Bill” Putt for setting up the shirts for us on the Dementia Radio Spreadshirt account. For a closer look at the individual drawings, visit the Performers page.

WEBSITE GETS MAKEOVER, NEW LOGO COLORED BY LINDSAY SMITH!

Our webmistress Sara Trice has given http://marscondementia.com an update, which includes our new tag-line “The World’s Longest-Running Fandom Convention Comedy Music Concert Series”. Also, I asked Lindsay Smith if she’d do a professional coloring job to the new MarsCon Dementia Track logo I designed, and it looks phenomenal! So check out what an awesome job they both did!

THE MARSCON DEMENTIA TRACK NOW HAS A FACEBOOK PAGE!

Why? Because internet! We’re currently at 95 likes, so please come by and ‘Like’ our page and join in the discussion as the excitement builds towards March 7th! It’s at http://www.facebook.com/marscondementia .

DEMENTIA RADIO ROOM PARTY STILL NEEDS VOLUNTEERS

The folks of Dementia Radio .org are doing another room party celebrating their station, it’s DJs, and the comedy music it plays. However, they are in need of volunteers to help for a couple of hours each at the party. Nate Boi, the guy in charge of the party, said this regarding volunteering: “When I say “help for a couple of hours”, that’s pretty much what I mean. Just be in the room for two to three hours, check IDs, hand out drinks, and generally make sure no one’s doing anything stupid. I don’t need a *lot* of stuff from you. But I do need you to commit and show up.” People interested in volunteering should email me at thegreatlukeski@gmail.com . Thanks.
