Request "Death Star", Luke Ski at MarCon 48, 3 new "Bad Rapport" episodes! - Luke Ski Update 3/25/20

There was an almost 5-week span of time where we didn't post a new episode of our podcast "Bad Rapport" due to MarsCon. So for the sake of getting back on track, in the past 3 weeks we've posted 3 new episodes! #80 is our MarsCon recap, #81 is more cartoon talk with TV's Kyle, and #82 is a fairly normal episode recorded at a mall. Besides that, the most important things to say are that I'll be at MarCon in Columbus this weekend, and please request "When You Wish Upon A Death Star" for the Dr. Demento Show! :) Talk to you all soon! ~ Luke Ski, 3/25/2013

- LUKE & CARRIE'S BAD RAPPORT: 3 NEW EPISODES!

Episode #080 – Retainer Container
MarsCon 2013 was so epic, it takes us over 3 hours to properly recap it. Along the way there is a special appearance by Flat 29 recorded live at Mickey’s Diner in St. Paul, as well as music by the Muppets, Scooter Picnic, Todrick Hall, Insane Ian, Mikey Mason, Carrie Dahlby, and TV’s Kyle, who also makes an appearance at the end of the episode. Episode length: 3:17:21

Episode #081 – Kyle & Luke Talk About Cartoons #4
In this episode, TV’s Kyle and the great Luke Ski discuss the animated features of 2012, telling us what they loved and what they ‘meh’-ed. Spoiler alert: Their top 2 favs of the year were “Wreck-It Ralph” and “Hotel Transylvania”, like that’s a surprise to anyone. They also talk about the Simpsons, Beauty and the Beast, and the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles show. Will Kyle & Luke ever get around to making this its own podcast? Based on how busy they both are, probably not. So if you want to volunteer to do all the hard work for us to make it a reality, let us know. Episode length: 1:29:10

Episode #082 – Collate Your Ducks
In this episode, Luke & Carrie go to Golf Mill Mall in Niles, Illinois, just because Carrie wanted to be somewhere that wasn’t the inside of a house. We get caught up on 3 episodes worth of comments, Carrie fills us in on the new proto-words in Alex’s vocabulary, and in a last bit of MarsCon 2013 wrap-up, Luke shows Carrie some of the ‘Boob Tree’ game cards from this year (go to the comments to get links to the images, and tips on green screening). We also reminisce about old commercial jingles & campaigns of the early to mid 80′s, and do the first (albeit sloppy, unprepared, distracted, and somewhat out of breath) installment of a new segment called “Silver Lining Reviews”, where Luke talks about “The Incredible Burt Wonderstone“, and Carrie talks about her new favorite video game app. We also have funny songs by Macklemore & Ryan Lewis featuring Wanz, Ricky Gervais & Dom Johnson, The Nick Atoms, Katherine McPhee & Christian Borle, Animaniacs, & Jimmy Fallon & Justin Timberlake. In the end the big question is, ‘is Luke Ski famous enough in the eyes of Mad Magazine?’ The answer, ‘probably not’. Episode length: 2:08:25

- MARSCON 2013 WRAP-UP

Well, MarsCon 2013 has ended, and it was arguably the best MarsCon ever. Several podcasts recorded segments at MarsCon, and others have done or will soon be doing post-con reviews of the event. I’ll be posting links to them as they are published, so we can all relive the awesomeness that was MarsCon 2013. So far we have Bad Rapport, 3 episodes of the Flopcast, The Scope, and Pros And Cons, and we're still anxiously awaiting the Pod of Destiny and Flat 29's Big Book Of Everything. You can find the links on the main page of http://marscondementia.com .

And hey, MarsCon attendees, the con staff wants to know what you thought about this year's convention! Please go fill out the survey at http://marscon.org/2014/survey.php .

- "DEATH STAR" WINS 'OUTSTANDING PARODY SONG' AT 2013 LOGAN AWARDS!
http://www.loganawards.com

I was very honored and moved this past weekend to have won the Logan Award for 'Outstanding Parody Song' of 2012 for my Disney-buys-Lucasfilm medley "When You Wish Upon A Death Star". I want to thank Bob Emmet, Chris Mezzolesta, and Carrie Dahlby for helping me turn my vision for this piece into an awesome audio reality, I couldn't have done it without you. I want to thank this year's jurors and permanent juror Dr. Demento for their support, Sara Trice for stepping in to tabulate the winners & order the statues, Rob Balder for founding the awards, and of course the fans who suggested my song for nomination. If you think I take this honor lightly, well, go watch the Logan Awards ceremony and see how I reacted when it was announced that I had won. (You'll also see the opening of the show featuring a really cool new musical number with myself, TV's Kyle, Insane Ian, & Carrie Dahlby.) This year's Logan Awards ceremony can be seen here:

- "THE FuMPET SHOW", A MUPPET SHOW PARODY BY LUKE SKI & THE FuMP!
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CLGsgi_L0os

Rather than doing a comedy sketch live on stage for Opening Ceremonies like we usually do at MarsCon, I talked my O.C. partner Earl into letting me take the reigns to do something I had wanted to do for a couple of years, a 20-minute video parody of "The Muppet Show" done starring the puppets, voices, & songs of the FuMP acts, done in tribute to MarsCon itself. This being the 10th year of the MarsCon Dementia Track, it was the perfect time to make it happen. I worked on this non-stop for 4 weeks straight (with the help of many friends, family, & FuMP colleagues), finishing it 5 days before I was to leave for MarsCon. So please go check it out, and if you like it, share it with your friends online via Facebook, Twitter, or whatever social media you frequently use. I hope it makes you so happy that you do a Kermit arm flail and say "YAAAAAY!!!"
