"DEMENTIA RADIO" SEEKS COMMITTED VOLUNTEERS FOR ROOM PARTY
The folks of Dementia Radio .org are considering doing another room party celebrating their station, it's DJs, and the comedy music it plays. However, they are not going to be able to do it without volunteers to help run the party. People interested should be familiar with Dementia Radio .org, and also need to actually commit their time and effort to this. No saying 'sure I'll help' and then flaking out on them, leaving them high and dry with no help. You need to be actually willing to help and commit your time and effort? Have I hammered the point home hard enough? I have? Good. Interested parties should email me at thegreatlukeski@gmail.com . Thanks.
Currently pre-registration for a weekend badge for MarsCon 2014 is $50.00. The price will increase on February 1st, so get your badge before Midnight on January 31st, 2014, and get psyched for our returning main stage performers, the “Smogberry Trees” documentary crew, Dr. Demento, and Music Guest Of Honor Henry Phillips at MarsCon 2014!

- "WHEN YOU WISH UPON A DEATH STAR" HITS #3,
AND "YOU DON'T KNOW JACK" BY TONY GOLDMARK HITS #21
ON DR. DEMENTO'S FUNNY 25 OF 2013!
Thank you all so much to all of you fans who have been requesting "When You Wish Upon A Death Star" all year and pushed it up to #3! That last push got me above Lonely Island's YOLO (you only LOSE once? Oh, snap!jk, they rule :) ). Also very happy that Tony Goldark's cover of my song "You Don't Know Jack" from "Worst Tribute Ever" hit #21 on the Countdown, so thanks again Tony, and Carrie for getting that whole thing started! :D

- "SURFIN BIRD (FAMILY GUY REMIX)" MASH-UP BY LUKE SKI
PLAYED ON THE DR. DEMENTO SHOW!
I took all the "Surfin' Bird" related clips from the "Family Guy" episode "I Dream Of Jesus" and mashed them up with the original song by the Trashmen. I sent it to Dr. Demento, and he played it on last week's show! Final mix by Chris Mezzolesta, who has known that the bird is the word a lot longer than I have. :)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
- LUKE & CARRIE'S BAD RAPPORT
Episode #096 - Hearing Double
The holiday season is winding down, so what better way to spend New Year’s Eve than by listening to a tinny podcast recorded on a Nexus 7 tablet rather than the high quality Zoom H2 because Luke is an idiot and forgot to bring the good recorder? If you can handle that, then you’ll be able to get caught up on what Luke & Carrie have been up to over the last month, including how they spent their respective Christmases. There’s also a couple of ignorance stories, one from Luke about his only holiday caricature gig this year, and one from Carrie about her recent trip to the dentist. And Carrie gives us her review of the new Disney full-length animated feature “Frozen”, which she saw earlier that day. Our comedy music tracks start off with a mash-up Luke Ski edited and Chris Mezzolesta mixed, so kick in the new year with these jams by The Trashmen, Pee Wee Herman, The WWF Superstars, Elwood Blues & Wilson Pickett, Family Guy, Big Daddy, the cast of Shrek 2, the Toy Dolls, and the Cadets. Thanks again for staying with us through 2013, and we look forward to bringing you more hopefully-above-tolerable episodes in 2014! Episode length: 2:04:48

- LUKE DRAWS "PERRY HORROR PICTURE SHOW" PHINEAUS & FERB MASH-UP ART
My friends "Blasted Bill" and Moonbeam have a recurring segment on their podcast "The Pod Of Destiny" (www.dementiaradio.org/podod) where they pick a group of characters from some TV show or movie, and then discuss who they would each play in a shadowcast of "The Rocky Horror Picture Show". On Episode 49 (http://www.dementiaradio.org/podod/?p=300), they set their sights on the cast of "Phineas and Ferb". I enjoyed their discussion so much, that I spent the past few weeks working on this piece of fan art for them. While I didn't go along with all of their suggestions, I think my end result is pretty good. (And yes, I know Richard O'Brien is the voice of Lawrence Fletcher, therefore it would have made a lot of sense to make him Riff Raff.) I hope all you Rocky Horror & Phineas and Ferb fans out there enjoy it. :)

#12 The Fox - Ylvis

#5 Companion Application - Devo Spice
#4 YOLO - The Lonely Island f/ Adam Levine & Kendrick Lamar
#3 When You Wish Upon A Death Star - the great Luke Ski
#2 After Ever After - Jon Cozart
#1 Mwahaha - Ookla the Mok

So, this year I had one song on the countdown which was a hold-over from the very end of last year, "When You Wish Upon A Death Star", which then hit #18, but this year rocketed up to #3 for the year. The song also won the Logan Award for 'Outstanding Parody Song' of 2012, so, you know, WOO-HOO and all that. I also through no effort of my own had a song that I wrote hit #21 via the AWESOME cover version of "You Don't Know Jack" by Tony Goldmark which he made for "Worst Tribute Ever", a project headed up by Carrie Dahlby which was completely unbeknownst to me pre-LukeSkiCon 2013. And again, through no new effort of my own, at #13, I am significantly featured in Devo Spice's remake of "Ozzman" from this year's "The Best Of Sudden Death" 2-CD set. So, no new music from Luke Ski in 2013*, and yet, 3 songs on this year's Funny 25 significantly have something to do with me. I guess I better respond to this good karma by creating a lot of new music in 2014. :) That's 12 years in a row on the Funny 25, with songs of mine appearing on a total of 15 Funny 25 countdowns. Copying, pasting, and updating from last year, here's...

Luke Ski on the Dr. Demento Funny 25 Countdown Compilation album track list:
1. "Insane and the Brain" (#7 in 1997)
2. "Kenny Was A Kid From South Park" (#6 in 1998)
3. "Fanboy" (#24 in 2000)
4. "Peter Parker" (#1 in 2002)
5. "Stealing Like A Hobbit" (#1 in 2003, #11 in 2004)
6. "The Spongy Dance" (#4 in 2004)
7. "Vader Boy" (#4 in 2005)
8. "You Don't Know Jack" (#2 in 2006, cover by Tony Goldmark #21 in 2013)
9. "Dementia Revolution" (#20 in 2007, #23 in 2009)
10. "Holding Out For Hiro" (#12 in 2007)
11. "Jack Bauer" (#19 in 2008)
12. "Battlestar Rhapsody" (#14 in 2008)
13. "Too Much Stuff" (#2 in 2009)
14. "Marvel Poppins" (#22 in 2009)
15. "It's Good To Be The King" (#19 in 2010)
16. "Snoopy The Dogg" (#1 in 2011)
17. "WalkingSilly" (#13 in 2011)
18. "When You Wish Upon A Death Star" (#18 in 2012, #3 in 2013)
So, if you're bored, make an iTunes playlist of that, and experience what me devoting the past 20 years of my life to comedy music has resulted in. All that and two Logan Awards seem pretty frickin' sweet to me. :)

17 songs on the Funny 25 countdown were new to 2013, with a couple of hold-overs from the end of 2012. The FuMP had 11 songs on the countdown, with 9 from the main page, and 2 from the FuMP Sideshow. And congrats to Ookla The Mok for getting the #1 song for the second year in a row with "Mwahaha" from their amazing album "Vs Evil"! Also major congrats to Devo Spice for getting 3 songs on the countdown, and being featured in another, and to Insane Ian who had 2 on the countdown. Continued congrats to Worm Quartet, Max DeGroot, The Stacey, and Joe J. Thomas for their placings. And a shout-out to non-FuMPer Amanda Cohen for making the list with her Al-inspired Doctor Who tribute!

Thanks again everyone, and happy new year!
~ Luke Ski, 1/9/13

* - I was the primary creative force and sole financier behind the 2013 Logan Whitehurst tribute track "This Is What Happens When You Give Logan A Medley", but nobody wants to give me any credit for that being a comedy music thing that I created, even though without me having had the idea and doing all the creative and organizational legwork, IT NEVER WOULD HAVE EXISTED, EVER EVER EVER. But y'know, my right to be allowed to complain about anything was revoked when I was given the second Logan Award. ;P

One last time, please REQUEST "When You Wish Upon A Death Star" today! - Luke Ski Update 11/25/2013

The most important things to report are:

1. This is the last time I'll be asking you to request "When You Wish Upon A Death Star" for "The Dr. Demento Show", so please help me out one more time and I'll shut up about it. Thanks. :)

2. "Luke & Carrie's Bad Rapport" now has a shorter format with less talking and the same amount of funny music. If you've never listened to the show before, or you used to and gave up on it, the newest Episode #94 would be a good one to give it a (nother) chance with.

3. If you are interested in booking me to draw at a holiday party in the Chicago tri-state area, or to draw a cartoon or caricature as a holiday card or gift, now is the time to contact me to book/hire me.

I'll be emailing again in one week on Cyber Monday with some deals on Luke Ski merch. Until then, allons-y and geronimo!

~ Luke Ski, 11/25/2013

- LUKE & CARRIE'S BAD RAPPORT
Episode #094 – What The Format?!

Much like a timelord who recently celebrated his 50th anniversary facing his moment of regeneration, change is inevitable. That's why for a number of reasons which are explained in this episode, we are altering the format of "Bad Rapport", making each episode shorter by cutting the number of our talking segments in half, but keeping the same amount of comedy music. We're going to make a specific effort to have our talk segments be concentrated discussions of what we're up to, as well as the media reviews we have been lacking lately, recording them away from home so we'll have no toddler-ruptions. We hope that the result will be a much more entertaining, interesting, hopefully ocassionally funny, but at the very least much more tolerable show for you to listen to every 2 weeks. In this episode, we recap what we've been up to since mid-October, we review Plants Vs. Zombies 2, SNL, and Marvel's Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D., and read your comments from Episode #92. We also have comedy music by Whitney Avalon & Jonathan Hurley, 2D6, Howard Wolowitz (performed by Simon Helberg, written by Garfunkel & Oates), The Buckwheat Boyz, Insane Clown Posse, ShiSho, Rob Paravonian, Kill The Band, and Schaffer The Darklord. I hope you all like new format. Please leave us comments letting us know what you think of it, either at the Episode 94 page at badrapport.com or by calling 916-LUKE-SKI, which we'll respond to in 2 episodes, because that's the way we do it now. Episode length: 1:32:05
