The Misplays
The story of popular card game "Magic: The Gathering" is filled with wondrous discovery and glorious conquest. Unfortunately, these players know nothing about it. Watch as they misstep through worlds of fantasy, trying to reenact stories they've never known.

The Klingon Pop Warrior 
Commander jenbom sings pop and rock songs you thought you knew in the original Klingon.  jenbom has the 47th translation of "Let It Go" from Frozen in the Disney archives and just released her 3rd EP in March 2021. Tongue-firmly-planted-in-cheek humor backed up with impressive musicianship and vocals, the Klingon Pop Warrior is a unique and fun experience for audiences of all ages, fandoms, and musical persuasions.

Tague Zachary
Tague Zachary tests the effects of his exceptionally nerdy songs on audiences all over the country. He has neither IRB approval nor signed consent forms, though he is bold enough to list "Confirmation Bias" in his disclosures. Preliminary results look promising.
