Note: By the time I woke up this morning, someone had already nominated every significant song I'd released in 2014, except for "Q*bert" and the video for Power Salad's "Corned Beef And Cabbage". So, to whoever nominated all my songs. Thank you! If any of you feel Q*bert or Cabbage are deserving of a Logan Award, feel free to nominate them. ;)

 

  • LUKE & CARRIE'S BAD RAPPORT

Episode #117 – Would You Like To Buy A Monkey?

LCBR117In our first California-produced episode, we start off with a segment recorded at Carrie’s house with Alex just minutes before Luke leaves for the last time before driving to Burbank with Sara. The second segment was recorded at Not-A-Burger stand with Kyle & Lindsay, where Sara and Luke recount their journey on the road. The third segment was recorded at Canter’s with Tony Goldmark and the cast of “Some Jerk With A Camera. The fourth segment was recorded via Skype with Carrie on Easter Sunday, so they can get caught up with each other, and so Luke can report on his first week at work at Cartoon Network.

Then, after what seems like the end of the episode, we have an additional segment (with songs) recorded with the “Some Jerk” crew at Cantors, in which Charlie and Morgan tell a 33-minute story of their most bizarre Disney World trip ever.

This episode features comedy tracks, some of which are Easter-themed, by Yo Gabba Gabba“Crazy People”, Brak (Cartoon Planet) featuring Freddie Prinze Jr., TV’s Kyle, Gilbert Gottfried & Owen Suskind, Carrie Dahlby, Paul & Storm, Patton Oswalt, Schaffer The Darklord, Tony Goldmark, Insane Ian, Tenacious D, & The Nick Atoms. So devour a bucket of peeps, and ride through your sugar rush with Luke and Carrie and all our guests on Bad Rapport! Episode length: 2:35:45

Brak and the True Neutrals - newsletter 600Yeah buddy. :)

 

My latest nerdy song parody tribute "The Twilight Zone" now has a video for it up on my YouTube page ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8fpxhQgmqy0 )! It's primarily made from clips from the classic TV show and the 1983 movie, but I make some appearances in it as well! Please check it out, share it with your friends online, and let us know how much you like it by commenting to this specific thread in the Official Dr. Demento Facebook Group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/drdemento/permalink/813568592048508/

As well as being on the FuMP, I have now also put the song on my Bandcamp page:

Greatest Hits Volume 2 - cover 400

This is a two album set covering the second part of my career, full of my most popular tracks from my 6th through 9th CDs which are all out of print. It has 32 tracks, including "Grease Wars", "You Don't Know Jack", "Battlestar Rhapsody", "BACON!", "My Favorite Part", "Vader Boy", "Too Much Stuff", and many more that made Dr. Demento's Funny Five and year-end countdowns. It's over 2 1/2 hours of music, available as a 2-CD set with instant download for $14.99 plus shipping, or you can just get the download version for $14.99. It has liner notes written by Carrie Dahlby and ShoEboX of Worm Quartet, and all the tracks were remastered by Chris Mezzolesta. You can get it now at my Bandcamp page:

http://lukeski.bandcamp.com/album/greatest-hits-volume-2-2004-2009

A note to my hard-core existing fanbase: None of the songs on this collection were "redone" like I did for "Fanboy" and "Gowron" on Volume 1, and there are no live tracks on this album. The point being, if you already own my out-of-print albums "unCONVENTIONal", "BACONspiracy!", "Target: Audience", and "Too Much Stuff", then there's no real reason you'd need to own this collection. This collection was made to replace the 8 CDs which I clearanced out during my 'Going Out Of Print' sale to sell at my live shows. Of course, if you're the type of fan-person who must own every release by your favorite acts, you're welcome to buy it. I just wanted to be upfront about the lack of new content to you all before you head over to my Bandcamp page.

Kermit - I made myself a promise

I don’t know what exactly this tumblr is going to be just yet, but one thing I know for sure that I want to do with it is create some inspirational images for myself and share them all with you. So, that’s what this image is, the first of what I will assume will be many. So to whoever you all are, thanks for checking out my tumblr, and I hope you’ll derive some enjoyment from what I post here in the future.

ABBY NORMAL 400

When I first met Devo Spice in June of 1998, I purchased all of the cassette albums released up to that point by his comedy rap group "Sudden Death". One of them, the album "Brain Dead" released in 1995, had a brilliant up-tempo nonsense song on it which prominently featured an opening sound bite of one of my favorite scenes from "Young Frankenstein", as well as a repeated sample during the chorus taken from "Weird Al" Yankovic's "Polkas On 45". It remains to this day one of my all-time favorite Sudden Death / Devo Spice songs. Every year the comedy music track at MarsCon concludes with a concert in which all the artists of the weekend get back up on stage one more time and perform a cover of one of their favorite comedy songs. This year, I decided to finally tackle that song, "Abby Normal", featuring a cavalcade of many of my favorite old cartoon & celebrity impressions from songs from my past. That's all I've got to to say, so 'sed-a-give' it a listen!

Music by Jace McClain of Nuclear Bubble Wrap
"Clarinet Polka" by Bob Emmet of Project Sisyphus

To hear the original version of "Abby Normal" by Sudden Death, check it out on Devo Spice's Bandcamp page.

Recorded shortly after Kevin's appearance on the FuMPcast covering my song "Orko, Slimer, Wicket, & Snarf" which featured a lengthy discussion of 80's TV, movie, & cartoon mascots & creatures, I recorded this episode of the Flopcast in which we discuss real-life characters of the 80's (Pee Wee Herman, Mr. T., etc.). Kevin banked this episode so he could post it MarsCon weekend, so here it is in all it's rad gnarly glory.

  • LUKE & CARRIE'S BAD RAPPORT

Episode #116 – Moonlight Over Winfield And Burbank
LCBR116

When you go 6 weeks without posting an episode because it’s the busiest time of your year, that’s how you end up with a 4-HOUR-LONG EPISODE. So just think of this as 3 episodes smushed together, and let’s get down to business, shall we?

A great amount of this episode is coverage of the MarsCon 2015 Dementia Track, featuring the great Luke Ski, Sara Trice, Tony Goldmark, Devo Spice, ShoEboX of Worm Quartet, Chris Mezzolesta of Power Salad, TV’s Kyle, Lindsay Carrozza, Kevin Eldridge & Kornflake of the Flopcast, and in a later-at-home recap, Carrie Dahlby.

The middle segment of this episode was taken from Episode #38 of my other podcast “Kyle & Luke Talk About Toons”, in which Kyle Carrozza explains the series of events that resulted in it coming to pass that I, Luke Ski, am heading out to live on he & Lindsay’s couch in Burbank, California for at least 4 to 6 months while I work on the creative team producing Kyle’s new cartoon show “Mighty MagiSwords” for Cartoon Network. Yes, for real. I am going to go work for, and at, Cartoon Network. Take a moment to yourself to freak out about this, as I do virtually every second of my life since I found out the news. (If you already heard this segment on “Toons”, then skip ahead 21 minutes.) We also get Carrie’s reaction to the news that I am leaving town, not sure if this cross-country move is going to be temporary or permanent, and its potential effect on everyone’s favorite lunar-obsessed newly 3-year-old kiddo, Alex.

This episode’s comedy tracks are by Raymond & Scum, Moxy Fruvous, Schaffer The Darklord, Sponge Awareness Foundation, TV’s Kyle featuring Lindsay Carrozza, Rob Paravonian, the great Luke Ski, Mikey Mason, Ookla The Mok, Family Guy, Patton Oswalt, Henry Phillips, Trevor Moore, Whitney Avalon featuring Sarah Michelle Gellar,Tom ‘T-Bone’ Stankus, The Nick Atoms, Danger Doom, Monty Python’s Spamalot, andTegan & Sara featuring the Lonely Island live at the 2015 Oscars.

We don’t know how frequently new episodes of “Bad Rapport” will come out after this one, but we do know we want the show to continue, even if it becomes an only-once-in-a-while podcast. In any case, thanks for listening, and thanks for caring. Please leave us some comments, and we’ll talk to you all in not-too-many-moons from now. Episode length: 4:00:00 Special thanks to Lindsay Carrozza for this episode’s image art.
