Please REQUEST "Snoopy The Dogg", Tour Date updates - Luke Ski Update - 9/27/11 [Sep. 26th, 2011|04:41 pm]

Well, a lot of fun was had at Geekeasy on Saturday night. I met "The Nostalgia Critic" Doug Walker, who really got a kick out of "Marvel Poppins", and he and I and Justin Graham live-riffed the "Masters of the Universe" movie to much laughter and applause. I did my set with video accompaniment, and got a lot of compliments after the show. So thanks again to Aaron Ackerson for setting the whole thing up. Hope to do it again sometime. :)

Sara and I spent yesterday having quality time together for our 1st anniversary. We took a double decker bus tour of downtown Chicago, ate at a wonderful Indian restaurant called Marigold, and then enjoyed comfort food and TV at the Intercontinental in Rosemont. So here's to Sara, my favorite part, for another year of not yet having set me on fire for being an annoying dorkbag. :) <3

In about a week, I'm going to launch the "Luke Ski Top 50" poll to update it to include songs from my latest album "Be Amused By Me". There are two songs on the album that were not posted at the FuMP, so if you haven't bought the album, you probably haven't heard them. Because I want to give them a fair chance in the poll, I played both of the songs back-to-back on the most recent episode of my podcast, "Luke & Carrie's Bad Rapport", they start 15:35 into Episode #49. So if you're planning on participating in the poll, and you haven't heard them yet, please go give them a listen.

Finally, "Snoopy The Dogg" is in danger of losing the top spot of 2011 on the Dr. Demento Show, so please go give it a request today. Thanks, and I'll talk to you all soon. :) ~ Luke Ski, 9-27-2011

So I just found out that newly recorded versions of pre-2010-written songs are eligible for nomination for the Logan Awards. That means my 2010 Editions of "Fanboy" and "Gowron Said Knock You Out" are eligible for submission on the open nomination suggestion song list form. Details on that are listed in the email update below.

Oh, and please please please request "SNOOPY THE DOGG" for the Dr. Demento Show. Thanks! :)

I had a great time with Carrie at "Can't Stop The Serenity", and yesterday was Sara's birthday, so we all got together and had a great big dinner at Heaven On Seven, a New Orleans style restaurant in Naperville. Good lord, it was good, and there was a lot of it. (...i want a ponyyyy, HUURRGGH!!!...) I have a couple of new Chicago tour dates to announce for the end of September, so be on the lookout for that.

PLEASE REQUEST "SNOOPY THE DOGG" FOR THE DR. DEMENTO SHOW! [Aug. 22nd, 2011|03:04 pm]
dr_demento_show

lukeski
"Snoopy The Dogg" was #9 again on Dr. Demento's Top Ten for July 2011, making its 5th consecutive appearance on the Top Ten this year, and placing it once again at the top of the fan tally predictions for Dr. Demento's Funny 25 of 2011! Thank you to all of you who continue to request to request it! I'm really hoping I can score my third Funny 25 #1 song with "Snoopy The Dogg", and the only way that's going to happen is if my fans let Dr. Demento know they want it to stay on top by requesting it once a week at http://drdemento.com/request . So please help me remain 'top dog' by taking a moment to request "SNOOPY THE DOGG" for "The Dr. Demento Show", and also, please tune into the show at http://drdemento.com/online.html and join in on the fun every week. It's still the best show ever. Thank you. :)

Well, I posted 2 new episodes of "Bad Rapport" last week, and Dr. Demento started his most recent episode with my new song "Walking Silly"! So those are all good things that make me happy. Still trying to reorganize my life post-GenCon, and I have a gig to prepare for this weekend, so I'll keep this short. Thanks for reading, and please put in a request for "Snoopy The Dogg" for the Dr. Demento Show! :)

Speaking of The FuMP...

I TOTALLY SHOULD'VE SENT OUT AN E-MAIL ABOUT THIS BACK IN APRIL NEWS
Yeah, I released a new version of "Vampire Penguins" in April, and I'm
just telling you about it now! I also forgot your birthday AND our
anniversary! Marvel at my failure! MARVEL AT IT!!!

On a related note:

you just enjoy my sense of humor and wonder how it might apply to a
webcomic whose art is stolen from royalty-free clip art collections, then
maybe you should consider checking out PartiallyClips, dammit!

Rob Balder started this comic a gajillion years ago, and decided last year

Clever signoff phrase,

New album "Be Amused By Me" - New FuMP "WalkingSilly" [Aug. 5th, 2011|09:14 am]
dr_demento_show

lukeski


It's the great Luke Ski's 10th full length comedy music album, "Be Amused By Me". Whether that title is a request or a demand has yet to be determined. What we are sure of is that this CD contains songs about Disney buying Marvel, Chuck, The Big Bang Theory, Kevin Smith movies, Mel Brooks, Monty Python, Anime, Bruce Campbell, Serenity, Red Dwarf, his 3rd holiday fandom opus "It's A Fanboy Christmas 3", and "Snoopy The Dogg", the most requested song of the year thus far on both "The Dr. Demento Show" and "The Mad Music Dementia Top 20". Featuring Carrie Dahlby, Devo Spice, Insane Ian, Flat 29, TV's Kyle, and many other friends from the FuMP, it's an album Carrie Dahlby said to me is "probably your best CD since Unconventional". Who am I to argue?

1. Be Amused By Me – 0:27
2. Marvel Poppins - featuring Carrie Dahlby – 2:10
3. The Hanna Barbera Polka – 3:13
4. I'm That Type Of Spy – 4:08
5. Sheldon's Delight – 5:42
6. All You Can Tweet - featuring Devo Spice – 2:04

9. CosPlaying FanGurls - by Insane Ian, featuring the great Luke Ski – 4:03
10. Sneaking Snacks Into The Cinema - by Flat 29, the great Luke Ski, & Carrie Dahlby – 4:39

NEW FuMP: "WALKINGSILLY"
A tribute to Monty Python's Flying Circus
By the great Luke Ski, featuring Dan of Flat 29
http://www.thefump.com


It's a man's life in the FuMP... This song, not written in the shed, is an idea that languished in a spiral notebook for years. One of the biggest reasons why being that it is a parody of "MotownPhilly" by Boyz II Men, and the last time I recorded a parody of that group in 1997 the results were a bereft-of-harmony, tone-def-parrot of a track. However, my recent resurrected not-dead-yet song ideas which led to my recent FuMP hits "It's Good To Be The King" and "Snoopy The Dogg" made me think it was about zalling time to enlist a couple of talented friends to join me on this holy quest to find my grail, that being the long overdue Luke Ski parody song tribute to the legendary UK comedy team, "Monty Python's Flying Circus".

Sir Dan of Flat 29 - Harmony vocals, British legitimacy, hen-teaser
Sir Bob Emmet - Music, Mixdown, Operating the machine that goes 'ping!'
with Sara Trice as Carol Cleveland
