Woot! Another fabulous piece of video from the Video Archeology team. Here  is "Gonad the Barbarian", presented at MidAmeriCon, the 1976 Worldcon, by Duck's Breath Mystery Theatre before they famous. If you are a Conan fan, or if you're not, this is worth watching. There are great sketches afterwards as well, my favorite being the recreation of famous pieces of art. Thanks to Geri Sullivan, David Dyer-Bennet, Scott Imes, Jeff Schalles and others, we have another piece of delightful video history. Thanks!
