-#3 ON DR. D-
The rockin’ gods of amazing-a-tude have allowed yet again for a rain of awesome to fall upon me as this month Vampires Suck (Feat. Devo Spice) is #3 on the Dr. Demento Show’s Top 10! Not only does this mean that I’m getting national radio airplay again, but it also means that I will more than likely (Hopefully) be in the good Dr’s year end Funny 25 countdown, which will be broadcast at the end of next month. Also, if you hadn’t heard, he also played ‘Vampires’ on his second Halloween show this year. Finally, we can show those weird Twilight fanatics that vampires on not in fact, sparkly, or driven to fallen in love with a silly mortal, but instead totally gangster. Thank you so much everybody who requested my song, please keep requesting VAMPIRES SUCK by ODD AUSTIN at www.drdemento.com/request for next month so we can insure that I make the year end countdown, thanks again!

-SHE’S ALWAYS A HILTON-
Hey, gang, guess what? I have just released a brand new parody that will be included on my upcoming second studio album (Tentatively titled, “Inconspicuous Explosion”, catchy, right?). The song is a parody of Billy Joel’s classic, ‘She’s Always a Woman’, titled ‘She’s Always a Hilton’. You can go get it for free right now at www.oddaustin.com, why donchya? Enjoy!

-MILEHICON 41 REPORT-
So, last month I performed at MileHiCon for the second year. You may recall that I released my debut album (Wrong Side of the Bed, available now in the online store at www.oddaustin.com/store.php) last year at the con. This year I released nothing new there, but I did have a great time. So I got there on Friday and unloaded my surprisingly massive amount of equipment for the show. I brought it all up to my hotel (You may think, but Austin, you live in Colorado, why would you get a hotel at a convention in the state you live in? I would respond: If you would’ve waited two seconds you would know). I got a hotel because I was going to be there the following day and didn’t want to drive the half hour back to my house, and all the way back the next day. So I talked with the people who run the place and started to set up my booth for CD sellings. My booth was placed next to the headliner for that night, and the dude I was to open up for, Marc Gunn, the Celtic filker. Around show time we went to do our sound check. It took a little longer than I would’ve wanted and thus I had to cut a song from the set list. Overall the show went pretty well, I was getting some good reactions from the crowd, and Patrick and I actually had stage presence for once! All in all it was a pretty rocking weekend. I made a nice amount o’ cash on CDs, we played a good show, I got to meet the Filkstar Marc Gunn, as well as a really cool SciFi writer named Rob S. Rice who gave me a copy of his CD, and finally, I got to meet Wayne Faust of the Dr. Demento favorite Faust and Lewis who invited me to be apart of his website www.picklehead.com, so it was truly awesome! Wow this section is long. Sorry…

-MUSIC PROGRESS-
I’m glad to be able to say that new songs are slowly existing. My EP that I mentioned on the last update, is nearing completion, and I hope to have it out by Christmas time, if not early January. I’m re-writing and re-recording stuff for the next album to make sure it’s top notch for you fine folks. So, things are moving forward much more than I could say for the last few months, but there’s still a considerable amount to do for the album before my self-designated release date arrives. Is there a way you can help? There sure is, when I do release my EP, I need every one of you to get it, the reason I’m releasing it is to help pay for the actual CD, so please buy it when it’s all done and its awesome has been unleashed.

-MARSCON 2010-
The very great the great Luke Ski has just announced the line up for next year’s MarsCon, and guess who’s gonna be there! That’s right! Steve Goodie! Oh, right, and ME!!! If you are unaware of the awesome that is MarsCon, it’s a Science Fiction convention held annually in Bloomington, Minnesota. When it comes to comedy music or as we like to call it dementia, this is pretty much the Super Bowl. It really is the largest gathering of comedy acts put together today, and I am very glad to have procured a main stage slot. Go visit www.marscondementia.com for a complete list of acts performing there, and visit www.marscon.org to buy your tickets today!
