- LUKE & CARRIE'S BAD RAPPORT

Episode #093 – “LUKE & CARRIE: 10 YEARS” SPECIAL

October 25th, 2013 was the 10th Anniversary of the day Luke Ski met Carrie Dahlby. To mark the occasion, Luke & Carrie went to a restaurant sans spouses, children, and their respective friends, so they could sit down and recount their history together. Circumstances led to them needing 3 separate sessions of this kind to complete the story. Luke trimmed it down a bit in post, and added songs that Luke & Carrie consider significant to their history. Those songs would be by the Fat Boys, Gee As In Jesus, the musical “Chicago“, Da Vinci’s Notebook, The Crest, “Buffy: The Musical“, Monty Python’s “Spamalot“, Flat 29, and the cast of “Red Dwarf“. Yes, it’s long, but it needed to be. I hope you’ll all take the time to listen to this special episode, and see the comments section for some bonus images and a playlist so you can make your own “Luke & Carrie: The 10th Anniversary Compilation Album” for your iPod. Thanks for listening. Love, ~ Luke Ski & Carrie Dahlby, October 25th, 2013 - Episode length: 3:33:54

- DR. DEMENTO TO APPEAR AT MARSCON 2014!

Last Sunday night when Dr. Demento appeared on the Sound 100.3 FM Los Angeles to do a live 2-hour episode of "The Dr. Demento Show" (which was also broadcast over the internet to over 30,000 listeners), he played the "The Dr. Demento Show" ID we recorded live at MarsCon 2010 with the whole main stage crowd cheering and chanting his theme song, 'Pico & Sepulveda'. Immediately after playing that ID, Dr. Demento said, "Yeah, that was a crowd at a science-fiction fan convention in Minneapolis called MarsCon. I will be at that convention next Spring in March..." Well, the original plan was for that to be a surprise, but the good Doctor let the cat out of the vacuum cleaner bag! So, since it's no longer a secret...

... DR. DEMENTO will be attending MARSCON 2014! ...

Meep Morp Studios, the crew currently in production of the forthcoming documentary feature film, "Under The Smogberry Trees: The True Story Of Dr. Demento And Mr. Hansen" is bringing the good Doctor back to his home town of St. Paul to film him where he grew up. So when Meep Morp Studios does their MarsCon 2014 main stage Q&A about their upcoming film, Dr. Demento will be joining them on stage for your fan questions! He will also have a scheduled autograph session, so bring your LPs, CDs, and other mad music memorabilia. Yes, 10 Years after he was our Guest Of Honor, Dr. Demento is returning for a visit and to join in the fun of the MarsCon Dementia Track!

And don't forget our MarsCon 2014 Music Guest Of Honor is comedy music legend HENRY PHILLIPS! More performers will be announced soon, but for now, start making your plans to be a part the past decade's most successful annual gathering of comedy music fandom!

- INSANE IAN'S KICKSTARTER NEEDS YOUR HELP! 2 DAYS LEFT TO DONATE!
http://kck.st/16gr9oy

Insane Ian is one of my favorite comedy music makers currently making comedy music. Well, that is, he would be making comedy music, if he had a computer that worked. Over the past few years, Ian has has repeated problems with his music & video production technology that have been so frustrating they would make Bill Gates throw himself into a wood chipper. Ian has some new comedy music projects he wants to get to work on, primary of which is a new series of reviews of video games done as comedy music videos, "Reviewsicals". He's already done one for "Saints Row IV" (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZlTm3dL8yEI), and is hankering to do more, but first he needs new hardware & software, and that's what his Kickstarter is all about.

For donating, Ian is offering digital downloads of the new songs, CDs, posters, T-shirts, he'll even write a song about you or the video game of your choosing, perform a concert at your house concert, and do your laundry. Details on the reward tiers are all available at the donation page, http://kck.st/16gr9oy .

This Kickstarter ends very soon, this Thursday, November 7th, at Noon EST, and he is still $1,234 away from his goal. Please donate something if you can. The world needs more awesome comedy music and videos by guys like Insane Ian. So help me help Ian help you to a helping of hilarity. Thanks. :)

- "WHEN YOU WISH UPON A DEATH STAR" HIT #3 DR. DEMENTO'S OCT. TOP 10!

It was a year ago this week when the news broke that Disney was buying Lucasfilm. Who knew it would lead to my second Logan Award and another monster hit on "The Dr. Demento Show"? "When You Wish Upon A Death Star" made the Top Ten again at #3 on The Dr. Demento Show's countdown for October 2013! Continued thanks to all you padawans and mad hatters who have been continuing to request it! It's still the 4th most requested song of the year according to the unofficial fan tallies, but your requests could push it up to #3 or #2! Let's keep this elephant flying across the skies of Coruscant, please share the music video on YouTube with your friends (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sb0HmsPEt68), and put 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. :)
