- REQUEST "WHEN YOU WISH UPON A DEATH STAR" FOR THE DR. DEMENTO SHOW!

Sadly, "When You Wish Upon A Death Star" was not on Dr. Demento's Top Ten for April 2013, and has dropped to being the 2nd most requested song of the year thus far. Will the song fade away and become some kind of Jedi ghost hanging out at the Haunted Mansion? Like a flying elephant, always in motion, the future is. So, if you'd like to see "When You Wish Upon A Death Star" back on the Top Ten next month, please REQUEST for "The Dr. Demento Show" to play it again at http://drdemento.com/request , and be sure to include your e-mail address so it counts towards the Top Ten tabulations! And as always, you can listen to the show every week at http://drdemento.com/online.html . Thanks!

- LUKE & CARRIE'S BAD RAPPORT
Episode #084 – KCAI: Kyle Carrozza Art Institute

Fact: I learned more about how to animate from Kyle Carrozza in one afternoon than I learned in my 4 years at an expensive fine arts college in Kansas City.

This epic 4 HOUR, 18 MINUTE LONG episode of Bad Rapport chronicles my recent trip to the Los Angeles area to mow the lawn of my Kickstarter super-donor Bob “Number 11″ Mathews at his birthday party, where I also did a house concert with the aforementioned TV’s Kyle and his bubbly long-time girlfriend Lindsay Smith, who also put me up at their place in Burbank for the majority of the trip. The three of us also collaborated on this episode’s artwork.

Those of you who have an aversion to long episodes, fear not, for I have edited this episode so that our talk segments only last 15 to 20 minutes each, followed by a 4-minute-ish music break, so that my droning on and on doesn’t get too tedious. This episode’s comedy tracks are by MC Skat Kat, Ookla The Mok, Game Grumps, Eric Houg, Craig Ferguson, Engine Sentai Go-onger, Jonathan Coulton, Garfunkel & Oates, Gilbert Gottfried, Rob Cantor, Tony Goldmark, Tally Hall, T.J. Miller, and John Lithgow.

So prepare to take a vacation to sunny L.A. in the theatre of your mind, and if you haven’t already, please donate to the “Under The Smogberry Trees” Kickstarter before it ends on May 4th, so that there can finally be a feature length documentary about Dr. Demento!

Episode length: 4:17:45

REMINDERS:


- LUKE SKI MOWS THE LAWN OF HIS BIGGEST KICKSTARTER DONOR!

Yes, as promised when I did my Kickstarter last year, I went to the home of Bob Mathews in Fullerton, California, and as well as performing a house concert for him and his family and friends on his birthday, I also mowed his lawn. Lindsay Smith was kind enough to be my cameraperson, capturing the event on my phone which was streaming it live to people watching it on the internet. The video was saved, and you can see it on my Ustream page at http://www.ustream.tv/channel/thegreatlukeski . TV's Kyle was also there, manning my HD video camera, adding commentary and getting more footage of the event for later use. I performed the house concert, which featured guest appearances by Kyle, Lindsay, Chris Waffle of Hot Waffles, and was filmed by Jeff Smith of Raymond & Scum for use in his forthcoming Untitled Comedy Music Documentary. Thanks to everyone involved, it was a great time all around. As Devo Spice commented upon seeing the video feed, "That was far more entertaining than it deserved to be."
