No wonder he has no friends. He does, however, have four CDs, 30 years of airplay on Dr. Demento and Car Talk, and a coffee addiction. Find him hiding at www.danhart.net.

Danny Birt - More Info, Blog

Before Danny Birt finished his bachelor's degrees in music therapy and psychology, his only contributions to the worlds of comedy and fandom were those of listener and reader. ...And then ALL THAT CHANGED when, in quick succession, Danny published his first epic fantasy book "Ending an Ending," was featured at Renaissance Festivals and sci-fi/fantasy conventions, released his first comedy/filk CD "Warped Children's Songs," and became an editor for a small-press publisher. With those initial steps taken (and more books, CDs, and short stories published), Danny has continued down the trail of becoming a Meta-Geek by joining convention committees, chairing the Logan Awards for Comedy Music, on occasion "leveling up" to Guest of Honor status at conventions, and starting to win awards for his work. But, even if you were to take all that fancy-shmansy away, you would still be left with a guy who likes to encourage people to think and laugh.

Jonathan Coulton - More Info, Blog

Jonathan Coulton is the Contributing Troubadour for Popular Science magazine and the musical director for John Hodgman’s Little Gray Book Lectures. He recently accompanied Hodgman on his book tour, singing songs about hobos and furry lobsters, all while wearing a funny hat. His songs about vengeful nerds, ennui-afflicted clowns, self-loathing giant squids, and devotees of a certain Swedish prefab furniture store are insanely clever without ever being too clever for their own good. They repeatedly lure you into laughing before suddenly breaking your heart. And the sick part is, you keep coming back. Coulton's is the voice of every spooky elementary school kid who could never quite keep his shirt tucked in or shoes tied; every lovelorn mason and mad scientist; every one of us who has ever sat despairingly on the floor, surrounded by parts of an Ikea endtable, weeping over our allen wrenches.

Project Sisyphus - More Info, Blog

Would you like the idea of Bach done as a hoedown? Coldplay performing the “Chicken Dance” at a wedding? No, of course not. These are the regrettable ideas of Project Sisyphus—a deranged muscial creation from session keyboardist/producer Bob Emmet, who was looking for new ways to lose money between gigs. Featuring a growing assortment of singers (none ever seem to want to come back), the first CD, “Finding Emo” was completed in September of 2007. For reasons nobody can explain, the first single, “Me And You And A Dog Snafu” has been featured on Dr. Demento and debuted at #5 on Dave Tanny’s Dementia Top 20 podcast. Unfortunately, other releases are bound to follow.

Steve Goodie - More Info, Blog

Steve Goodie is, in all modesty and candor, the genius of our age. Comedian, writer, singer, director and producer, Steve was a founding member of Monty Python and has written scripts for Sid Caesar, Woody Allen, Mahatma Gandhi, Matt Groening, and Queen Elizabeth (for which he was knighted in 1972 at the unprecedented age of six). The Beatles credit much of their fame to his early studio work, during which he developed their recording sound with his apprentice, George Martin. His film scores and theatre work need no introduction, and he became a household word with his ground-breaking recording of The Biggest Belch In The History Of Man. It is a tribute to his humility that, on the suggestion of his long-time fan and sometime paramour Liz Taylor, he entered the Federal Witness Protection Program and began a new career, "to level the playing field," as he put it, "for the other idiots trying to make it in Show Business."
