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

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

"Snoopy The Dogg" crawled out of the dog house and managed to sneak onto the Top Ten for September 2011 at #10! According to the unofficial Fan Tallies, it's still the #1 song of the year, but it's tied with another song which has been the #1 song on the Top Ten for 3 months in a row. Between that and the other great songs by my colleagues, I fear I'm going to fall out of the top spot! Will October's coming of the Great Pumpkin save me? I don't know, but you sure can help me stay on top of the countdowm by requesting for "The Dr. Demento Show" to play my song "Snoopy The Dogg" again at his site's request page: http://drdemento.com/request . And hey, with Halloween just around the corner, what better time is there to tune into the show and listen to some spooky tunes and scary melodies! You can do so at http://drdemento.com/online.html . It's still the best show ever!

It's also definitely worth noting that my Monty Python tribute song "WALKINGSILLY" featuring Dan of Flat 29 also made the Top Ten this month, at #6! Funny, I thought there was NOOOOOOO #6! So thank you to all of you who requested that one as well, it looks like I'll have at least 2 tracks on the Funny 25 this year. People will have to start calling me Luke "Two Tracks" Sienkowski.

- LUKE & CARRIE'S BAD RAPPORT:

Episode #049 – The Pink Sensation

In this episode we throw the spotlight on Carrie and ask her 80 questions about movies, TV, books, money, music, games, and sex. Then we accidentally stumble into some content by discussing our thoughts on a 3rd “Ghostbusters” film, and Luke does a spontaneous review of “The Smurfs” movie. Yes, Luke saw “The Smurfs” so you didn’t have to. We also have News of the Stupid and music by the great Luke Ski, Kornflake, Da Yoopers, Ken Bishop’s Nice Twelve, TV’s Kyle, The Nick Atoms, and Mondo Boffo and Scorpio. Luke also shows some art TV’s Kyle did 19 years ago, and presents an earworm even more insidious than other recent popular earworms, because this 5 second tune is played repeatedly for hours upon end in his workplace. Suffer, fools!

- "I'M THAT TYPE OF SPY"
Luke Ski's new parody song tribute to "CHUCK"!
Download the free MP3 at http://www.thefump.com

This song is a parody of LL Cool J's "I'm That Type Of Guy", a song about a sneaky lover with a video featuring LL as a covert operative using all his espionage skills to break into the U.S. national scantily-clad hottie despository. Which led me to think, well, just what type of spy is he? And is there another modern spy more deserving of a task like that? The answer is yes, of course there is, and he lives in Burbank. I'm talking about "Chuck", the titlular character of NBC's awesome spy show about to enter it's 5th and final season, starring the nerd machine himself, Zachary Levi. So I hope all you internet-dwelling Chuck fans tell all your online friends about this song available here at the FuMP dot com, and it's excellent FAN VIDEO made by Emily Ann Meyer, which world premiered at Nerdapalooza 2011: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k_zPHykX014

Red Dwarf, his 3rd holiday fandom opus "It's A Fanboy Christmas 3",

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
is "probably your best CD since Unconventional". Who am I to argue?

- 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.
