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. Thanks for reading, ~ Luke Ski, 8-29-2011

HEADLINES:


- PLEASE REQUEST "SNOOPY THE DOGG" FOR THE DR. DEMENTO SHOW!

"Snoopy The Dogg" did not make the Top Ten for August 2011 on the Dr. Demento Show. However, the unofficial fan tallies indicate that it's still the most requested song of 2011 thus far, so it still has a chance to top the year end Funny 25 Countdown. The competition from the competent, confident comedy conspiritors is constant, so com on and please help keep it at the top of the list by requesting for "The Dr. Demento Show" to play "Snoopy The Dogg" again at http://drdemento.com/request . And as always, I can't encourage and recommend enough that you tune in and listen to the show every week at http://drdemento.com/online.html . It's still the best show ever. :)

In similar news, my new Monty Python tribute song "WalkingSilly" made the August Top Ten at #3! Splunge-tastic! :) So after you've put in a request for "Snoopy The Dogg", feel free to put in an additional request for "WalkingSilly" if you like, unless some Army Colonel tells you that it's much too silly.

- "ELEVATOR"

A new sketch comedy track by Cirque du So What?
Download it for free now at http://www.thefump.com

Some patrons of the FuMP don't feel it is a place where sketch comedy should be posted. They say that it "takes the "M" out of the FuMP", or imply that certain members of Cirque du So What? have forgotten that the M stands for 'MUSIC'. Okay. You want music? We'll give you music. The next time you're in a busy public place and the song featured in this track rockets to the front of your frontal lobe, and it takes every fibre of your being to stop yourself from singing it aloud in public, just remember that this is what was asked for from us, so blame them. Sketch written by ShoEboX, music written and composed by Timothy F. Crist, and arranged and produced by Chris Mezzolesta. Special guest appearance by, well, you'll figure it out. From our continually existing album "Stupid Cowboy Thing - Volume 1: GRANDMOTHER!" which you can purchase at the Store at thefump.com. Remember, you asked for it.

- LUKE & CARRIE'S BAD RAPPORT

Episode #047 – Ignorance Is The Whole Show
The first half of this episode was recorded at Luke’s merch table at the Can’t Stop The Serenity event at the Portage Theatre in Chicago last weekend, where we met our new friend, Dr. Allison, shown here with the chibi art Luke drew for her as a reward for being the person who was the most excited to see Luke & Carrie at the event. In this episode we discuss who Luke is the boss of (nobody), and Carrie tells of her exhaustive training in cardiopulmonary resuscitation. We also have News of the Stupid, and comedy tracks by Cirque du So What, The Lonely Island, The Muppets, and Matt Nathanson covering the Muppets. Yes, Bad Rapport, where the enthasis is on correct spelling and word usage, basically. Episode Length: 1:43:34

REMINDERS:


- BE AMUSED BY ME!!!

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?

- 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

- CIRQUE DU SO WHAT?’S NEW ALBUM,
“STUPID COWBOY THING - VOLUME 1: GRANDMOTHER!”
NOW AVAILABLE AT THE FUMP STORE!

Cirque do So What, the sketch comedy super group made up of Devo Spice, the great Luke Ski, Shoebox of Worm Quartet, and Chris Mezzolesta of Power Salad, returns with their second album which is so packed full of comedy, insanity, and profanity, that it had to be broken up into two albums. Stupid Cowboy Thing, Volume 1: GRANDMOTHER! features an hour of hilarious sketches, phony commercials, and bizarre music. The Guess The Context series continues unashamedly, and of course there are appearances by The Tile Guy. There’s also a really inappropriate song that you will find yourself singing at all the wrong times because it will get stuck in your head and will surface and the most inopportune times. This album also heavily features Carrie Dahlby, Kim Crist, and Sara Trice, and also features a cameo appearance by the lads of Flat 29.
