'You Don't Know Jack' by Tony G. at the FuMP! New Puppet DVD! New Bad Rapport! - Luke Ski Update

The FuMP dot com has won the 2013 Parsec Award for Best Speculative Fiction Music Podcast! This is our second time winning this award, the first time was in 2009. On top of the usual amount of pride I feel for the FuMP and its dozens of highly talented comedy music acts, I also feel a little bit of personal victory in these awards, because in both instances, the sample compilation MP3 we sent to the award committee contained an excerpt of one of my songs posted during the qualifying year ("Battlestar Rhapsody" in 2009, and "When You Wish Upon A Death Star" in 2013). So, go us, and go me! :)

Also, in preparation for this Thursday being "Talk Like A Pirate Day", ye best be gettin over to the FuMP dot com where Tony Goldmark has posted not one, but TWO different covers of me Captian Jack Sparrow tribute, "YOU DON'T KNOW JACK"! So go plunder those MP3s now, you bloomin' cockroachers! ~ Luke Ski, 9/17/13

- MORE "WORST TRIBUTE EVER" TRACKS AT THE FuMP!

"You Don't Know Jack" by Tony Goldmark
http://www.thefump.com/fump.php?id=1721

Who do you get to cover a song about a Disney character written by a Disney fanboy? An ever bigger Disney fanboy, that's who! So avast, ye scurvey scum and behold the Caribbean glory of Tony Goldmark's AMAZING cover of my song "You Don't Know Jack" today at the FuMP! This is one of my favorite songs from "Worst Tribute Ever", so please go check it out and leave a comment for it!

"You Don't Know Jack (Plan B)" by Tony Goldmark
http://www.thefump.com/side.php?id=1233

When Carrie was secretly putting together "Worst Tribute Ever", circumstances led to the CD art & text being printed before the master CD was burned, leaving Tony a window of mere hours to finish the studio version of "You Don't Know Jack" for the tribute album. This "Plan B" track is an alternate cover of the same song that he created as an emergency back-up.

"Holding Out For Hiro" video by Blythe Renay
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0SzQOXfnTxs

Damsels fan Bryan Ward made a whole bunch of photoshopped images of Blythe Renay & Luke Ski spliced into scenes from the TV show "Heroes". Blythe then put all these images in a video for her cover of "Holding Out For Hiro", which can now be seen on the Damsels Of Dorkington's YouTube page. Thanks Bryan and Blythe! :D

- LUKE & CARRIE'S BAD RAPPORT

Episode #090 - FormalSick
Shockingly, this episode contains no convention recaps at all, and no toddler interruptions until at least half-way through the episode. In this episode, we talk about KFC food innovations, uneventful summer camp memories, outfit-based illnesses, and we start a new segment, “Luke’s Neurosis Of The Week”. We also discuss the recent disappearance of one of Luke’s favorite foods of all time, Mrs. Grass Chicken Noodle Soup. So if you have any in your area, please obtain it and send it to Luke immediately. Another thing you should obtain and send to Luke immediately is the 1982 K-Tel “Just For Laughs” LP. Our comedy tracks in this episode contain a heavy amount of T.D. Mischke, who recently retired from talk radio after 22 years on the air. We also have tracks by Michael Crouser, Pudding Capacity, Liam Lynch, Stephen Lynch, Avenue Q, Mike Phirman, DuJour, and The Gomers. Hope you all enjoy it, and until next time, bye-bye microphone. Episode length: 2:28:11

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

Sadly, "When You Wish Upon A Death Star" did not make The Dr. Demento Show's Top Ten for August 2013. It's still hanging in there stong as the 4th most requested song of the year according to the unofficial fan tallies! Now that the new MUSIC VIDEO for the song has been posted on my YouTube page, hopefully this will result in a resurgance of fan support. So please help me out by putting in a REQUEST for "WHEN YOU WISH UPON A DEATH STAR" at http://drdemento.com/request TODAY, and be sure to INCLUDE YOUR EMAIL 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 . I always do, and you should to. :)

- "WHEN YOU WISH UPON A DEATH STAR" MUSIC VIDEO!
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sb0HmsPEt68

After weeks of non-stop drawing and editing, at long last, the official music video for "When You Wish Upon A Death Star" has been finished and posted to my YouTube page! It's in the same style as the "Marvel Poppins" video, but with some new editing tricks to make the illustrations move, and bunch of new visual Disney/Star Wars jokes added to make it even more epic than this Logan-Award-winning piece already was. Seriously, I racked my right arm working like mad to get this video done in time for GenCon Indy, so please, go check it out, and share it with your friends on Facebook, Twitter, and any other social media you frequent
