The 2014 Logan Awards are just over 2 months away. Soon the Jurors will have all submitted their picks for the funniest songs of 2013, and once our chair "Blasted Bill" Putt has tabulated the winners, it will be time for him to order the engraved 'Robot Cat" statuettes, and those things cost boku-bucks. That's why we've launched this Kickstarter, to pay for this year's Logan Awards statues, and if we hit that goal, even more to save up a 'battle chest' of funds to pay for future year's statues.

Some of the prizes for donating include: an album of live music recorded at Luke Ski's private Kickstarter party event "LukeSkiCon 2013", a video presentation of highlights of live comedy music performances performed at the first 3 "Logan Awards" ceremonies, a Logan Awards t-shirt, an appearance on the FuMPcast, custom made comedy songs and house concerts by Luke Ski, Devo Spice, Insane Ian, TV's Kyle, Worm Quartet, Power Salad, Carrie Dahlby, Phil Johnson, Tony Goldmark (song only), Eric Coleman and Steve Goodie (house concert only).

This Kickstarter ends on May 14th, so please donate today, and please share this with all your friends online who love comedy music!

  • LUKE & CARRIE'S BAD RAPPORT

Episode #102 – Overreacting Is Your Jam

As much as I have been trying to stick with the new show format which would hopefully produce episodes that are about 90 minutes long with one third of that time being comedy music, some things just can't be covered quickly. One of those things is our annual coverage of MarsCon, which is our only topic of conversation in this almost 3-hour long episode. This year's MarsCon saw the return of Carrie Dahlby to the main stage for her own 30-minute concert, as well as Luke's first performances of "Fake Adult" and "Because Of Bob". Oh, and did we mention that Dr. Demento was there along with Meep Morp Studios, and that both Luke & Carrie were interviewed for the Dr. Demento documentary "Under The Smogberry Trees" which they are making? Yeah. That, and the whole rest of the weekend, was just incredible.

Among the MarsCon talk we have comedy tracks by Sparrow FolkTV's Kyle featuring Insane Ian and Austin AeschlimanYlvisDevo SpiceTina Fey & The MuppetsCarrie DahlbyT.J. Miller featuring Bo BurnhamPatton OswaltThe Confabulation Of Gentry, and Power Salad. So get comfortable and prepare to have your earholes filled with Luke Ski & Carrie Dahlby's recap of the epicness that was MarsCon 2014. Episode length: 2:57:59

  • KYLE & LUKE TALK ABOUT TOONS

Episode #14 - Muppets From SPACESHIP!!!

This week, Kyle and Luke rave about "The Lego Movie" and "Muppets Most Wanted". We know that the latter isn’t a cartoon. Try to cope. Also, Luke indirectly calls Kyle a douche and Kyle finds it really funny. Balsa Wood count: 2

Luke Ski has announced his new forthcoming "Scud: The Disposable Assassin" concept album, I Am The Scud, in honor of the independent comic book's 20th Anniversary on January 29, 2014. "Yes, it's being released late after the actual anniversary, but what good tribute concept album ever comes out when it was planned to?" said Luke as he carefully dusted his Scud action figure. This album will feature 24 tracks, one about each issue of the classic independent comic book, finishing with Luke's 2008 song "Scud" remixed to include his cover of the original 'Scud Rap' between the bridge and the third verse.

"Now I know what you're all going to say," Luke interjected as he turned on the Sega Saturn game. "What about the Drywall: Unzipped one-shot? That special issue has crucial plot points from the main storyline. Will that comic get it's own track? Well, I'm going to see if I can sneak that song onto the album by making it a hidden track, which you can only find by rewinding from the start point of Track 14, putting the track in its proper place chronologically between issues #13 and #14. But you all knew that. Surely you all have read the Scud Omnibus by now after me talking about how awesome it is after all these years. If you haven't, that would mean that I have completely failed as a promoter of awesome things, which, just can't be true... Can it?" Luke then curled up into a fetal position, rocking, drooling, and mumbling something about 'Dr. Lazer Rage'.

If you're a Disney nerd, especially when it comes to going to the Disney theme parks, then the best show you could possibly be watching online is Tony Goldmark's "Some Jerk With A Camera" series on Blip.tv. For the past few years, Tony has covered everything from the Country Bear Jamboree to Captain EO, with hilarious results. His most recent season of the show finished with a story arc in which Tony reviewed all of the ABC sitcoms of the 90's that did episodes where their family visited Disney World in Florida. In the season finale, he reviews the ABC sitcoms that went to Disneyland in California, and at the end of the episode, there is a special appearance by me which was filmed when I was in California last April. You can see that episode here: http://blip.tv/some-jerk-with-a-camera/abc-goes-to-disneyland-6736840 , and again, if you're a Disney nerd, I highly suggest you go back to Episode 1 and watch the whole damn thing. Just watch out for 3-D spinning rocks in space.

Flibbledee-floo! (If you knew that that was a reference to Dana Carvey's 'Grumpy Old Man' character from SNL, award yourself bonus comedy nerd points.)

I'm happy to report that my midlife-crisis-tastic song "Fake Adult" hit #5 on "The Dr. Demento Show's" Top Ten for March 2014! Hooray! I'm old and people find that amusing! That makes two Top Ten appearances in a row!

If you'd like to hear him play the song again, and possibly make the Top Ten for April (and the Funny 25 at the end of 2014), you can REQUEST "FAKE ADULT" for "The Dr. Demento Show" at http://drdemento.com/request , and please include your e-mail address when you do so it counts towards the monthly Top Ten tabulations! As always, you can listen to the show every week at http://drdemento.com/online.html . I always do, and you should to. :)

You can download "Fake Adult" as an MP3 now for 99 cents at the FuMP, http://www.thefump.com/fump.php?id=1762 , or you can get it from my Bandcamp page in a variety of digital audio formats: http://lukeski.bandcamp.com/track/fake-adult

"Fake Adult" has also been at or near the top of the charts of the Mad Music Dementia Top 20 for the past 2 months! Thanks to everyone who's been voting! If you'd like to vote & listen, check out these links:

  • LUKE & CARRIE'S BAD RAPPORT

Episode #101 – Healthy As A Healthy Horse
It's been a whole 2 months since Luke & Carrie sat down at Apollo Grill to talk about what they have been up to lately. There's so much to discuss that we decided to put off our recap of MarsCon 2014 and Luke's FAWM album until our next episode. We recorded 3 segments, which once I started editing this episode made more sense to present in our old episode format. So this one's just over 2 hours, but it has a lot of great music by the likes of the great Luke Ski, T.J. Miller with various guests, Mike Phirman, Thomas The Tank Engine, Carrie Dahlby featuring Wyngarde, Chris Hardwick & Paul Williams, Tegan & Sara featuring the Lonely Island, Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake, and the Muppets as we review their latest theatrical feature film, “Muppets Most Wanted”.

Alex makes an appearance in our opening segment, and we talk about his 2nd birthday party and his disdain for people who change the lyrics to songs he likes. Don't worry, I'm sure he'll come around on that issue before long. Be sure to leave us comments for this episode, as well as for Episode 100, which at the time I'm writing this only had ONE comment. WTF, y'all? So please leave us comments here, at Episode #100's page, and on our phone hotline 916-LUKE-SKI, goddammit. Episode length: 2:09:33

  • PROS & CONS PODCAST appearance

Jonah Knight and Mikey Mason had Luke Ski and TV's Kyle on the Pros & Cons Podcast to talk about February Album Writing Month, conventions, and other deep stuff. You can hear it at http://prosandconspodcast.blogspot.com/2014/02/ep-73-tvs-kyle-and-great-luke-ski-wrap.html

Luke & Carrie's Bad Rapport: Episode #100 - Live At MarsCon 2014

The numeric prophecy has come to pass, finally justifying my labeling our first episode as "#001". Lunging forth through the darkness of the internet, our digital audio warhammer has smashed through the barrier separating double digits from triple digits, for after 4 years, 4 months, and 26 days, the fortnightly-ish podcast known as "Luke & Carrie's Bad Rapport" has finally arrived at EPISODE 100!!!

This episode was recorded live at MarsCon 2014 as a part of the Dementia Track festivities, and features an audience made of people, our first physical evidence that our show actually has such a thing. You'll hear many familiar voices in the crowd of this episode, as well as hearing a handful of highlights from past episodes of "LCBR", as I have always abbreviated it.

The music for this momentus episode comes from Adam English of Ookla The Mok, Wayne & Garth, Mystery Science Theater 3000, T.J. Miller, Flat 29, The Toy Dolls, and three tracks by the great Luke Ski from his new 27-minute-long album "Because Of Bob: Luke Ski's Kickstarter FAWM album (songs I wrote about people for money)", which is available physically (for now) and digitally (forever) at LukeSki.bandcamp.com.

Our first episode was titled "Our Motto: Shoot For Tolerable". So Carrie and Luke put it to you, the listener, did we succeed? Has this show been tolerable, nay, even entertaining? Or has this show devolved even further into a colossal waste of everyone's time? After listening to this episode, please leave us a comment and let us know. Some congratulatory phone calls to 916-LUKE-SKI would be particularly welcome. No matter what you think of what this show has become, it is undenyable that it still exists, which is at least partially your fault. So take ownership of that by leaving a comment or a voice message, and we'll see you all at #101, unless all your messages are advising us to stop.

In 2012, I did a Kickstarter campaign to raise funds so I could acquire new tech that would aid me in making and performing new creative endeavors in art, comedy, and music. One of the donation prizes was that I would write and record a funny song inspired by the donor, and release all of these songs on an album. I participated in FAWM (February Album Writing Month) in 2014 as a means to write and record the 9 remaining songs I owe to those donors and release the album, titled "Because Of Bob: Luke Ski's Kickstarter FAWM album (songs I wrote about people for money)".

THE SONG: "Because Of Bob", the first and title track of the album, is inspired by my largest Kickstarter donor, Bob Mathews aka 'Number 11', whose donation directly led to everything mentioned in the song happening, most importantly, fulfilling my promise to anyone who donated over $1,750 that I would mow their lawn. Bob donated $2,200. So while you likely won't understand much in this song or on the rest of the album, you'll certainly sense the fun and the appreciation I feel for all the folks who donated to my first Kickstarter. Thank you to all of you. Especially Bob.

Download the a free MP3 of "Because Of Bob" until April 7th at the FuMP:
http://www.thefump.com/fump.php?id=1776 After that, it'll be 99 cents to download. And please leave me a COMMENT there if you like the song.

THE VIDEO: Click the following link to see the music video I made for this song full of pics and video of many of the actual events described in the lyrics: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pHwy6RxdnU8

THE ALBUM: You can listen to the 10 song, 27-minute-long EP for free at its Bandcamp page. You can also buy a digital download of it for $4.99, or buy a CD with digital download of it for $5.99 + shipping. Note, I haven't decided yet whether or not I will be reprinting this album as a physical CD. As of me typing these words, there are 3 copies of it remaining on CD for sale at the Bandcamp page. So if you're one of those fans who likes to own physical copies of the CDs by your favorite acts, I'd advise you to purchase it now, since you may not get another chance.
