Request "Death Star", new "Bad Rapport", new Tour Dates, & a T-Rex! - Luke Ski Update 5/20/2013

LukeSkiCon 2013 is just a month away, and I couldn't be any more (freaked out about getting everything done in time) excited about it! All you folks who donated to my Kickstarter last year need to go to http://lukeskicon.com and enter the password to see the preliminary schedule to find out who's performing, and to get the hotel information so you can make a room block reservation. You also need to email me to confirm your attendance (details at the website). I am trying to get a separate emailing list for LukeSkiCon launched, so keep an eye out for that.

Hey, have you requested "When You Wish Upon A Death Star" for the Dr. Demento Show lately? If not, please do, and please include your email address. Also, listen to the show, because it is 2 hours of awesome every week. Thanks! And now, the news... ~ Luke Ski, 5/20/13

- 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 #085 – Suit Your Nudes
In this episode which was recorded mostly on Mother’s Day, Luke presents Carrie with her Mother’s Day gift from himself and Sara, which gets immediately critiqued by 14-month-old art critic Alex. Later that day, Josh was given large amounts of middle-eastern bread, but that has nothing to do with this podcast. Carrie launches a new segment “Dahlby’s Dreamsicles”, where she tells us about her strange dreams, with Luke adding one of his own that is most definitely Insane-Ian-related. In ‘Silver Lining Reviews’, Luke talks about the latest Michael Bay movie “Pain And Gain”, and Carrie talks about the Trey & Matt musical “The Book Of Mormon”. We also get caught up with 3 episodes worth of comments, and play comedy tracks by DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince, Eric Coleman, Patton Oswalt, The Book Of Mormon, The Lonely Island, and C.W.A.. The art image for this episode of the Rock riding a skateboard was drawn by Lindsay Smith. ‘Cuz she’s cool like dat. Episode length: 1:51:44

- LUKE SKI HELPS THE NOSTALGIA CRITIC CREATE "THE T-REX SONG"!

Doug Walker, a.k.a. The Nostalgia Critic, contacted me recently because he had an idea for a song that he wanted to incorporate into his video review of "Jurassic Park". I whipped up some background music for him and did some chorus vocals, and Doug took it and ran with it! You can hear it in the review, and Doug made his own extended full-length version of it, "The T-Rex Song", which you can listen to and purchase on his BandCamp page. I intend to do an extended version of this with him for my forthcoming album, but please check out Doug's version now! WARNING: This song contains R-Rated language. And a T-Rex.
