Hey everyone!

Luke and Judy at Khans

Well, another MarsCon has come and gone, and man was that amazing. The legendary Judy Tenuta graced the Main Stage (and Khan's Mongolian Barbecue), the Library Bards rocked the house in their first appearance, and I performed a world premiere song and some cool covers with nary a rehearsal to be seen. Or done. Like, at all. Anyway, before I spend all weekend storyboarding, I figured I'd knock out a quick Update to let you all know what new stuff has cropped up over the past month. Enjoy! :)

This year's music Guests Of Honor are the awesome Paul & Storm! Also performing concerts this year are: 2D6, Carrie Dahlby featuring Court and Country, Devo Spice, Dino-Mike, Megathruster, Rob Paravonian, Seamonkey, the Gothsicles, The Library Bards, Tim Cavanaugh, Tom Smith, Worm Quartet, and Zack Shornick and the Pathetic Men. I do not have a scheduled main stage concert this year, but I will have one ready in case we have a cancellation so I can fill the void. I'll also be performing here and there throughout the weekend, and my merch will be for sale at Table 27. So get your badges and your hotel rooms reserved now!

Head over to MarsConDementia.com to get links to the podcast coverage of MarsCon 2016, including the shows Kyle & Luke Talk About Toons (recorded live at MarsCon 2016), the FuMPcast, the Insider, and Luke & Carrie's Bad Rapport!

Once again Commissioner J.P. Tuesday (a.k.a. Jered Perez) put together another virtual battle royal pitting all of the guests of the MarsCon Dementia Track against each other, even a couple of the fictional ones! In front of a live audience and with commentary by J.P. and Duke 'Flyboy' DuJour, (a.k.a. Luke Ski), let's get right to the action!

On Star Wars day this year (May the 4th be with you), I finally uploaded the composite music video for "Grease Wars" I made for Dragon*Con 2006, which combined both elements of the live performance done at MarsCon 2005 (including the live concert audio), and the nearly-completed music video I made at Ed Debevic's in Lombard, IL. I know the video quality isn't the best, but let's face it, I'm never going to have the time to put together a slick HD version of this. So please do me a favor, and the next time you want to share "Grease Wars" with someone online, give them the link to this video, and not some other rando person's boosted trisected unauthorized YouTube link. Thanks so much, and enjoy the video. :)

I was interviewed by my good friend Grant Baciocco of the comedy band "Throwing Toasters", the historical hysterical podcast "The Radio Adventures Of Dr. Floyd", and many other creative endeavors. His podcast "The GrantCast" features 15-minute interviews (which in my case became 33 minutes) with people he knows in the creative community. Check it out here:

I recently lent my voice and improvisational skills to Tony Goldmark's theme park review web series "Some Jerk With A Camera". More specifically, my Gilbert Gottfried impression, which was utilized during part two of his 3-part review of the "Haunted Mansion" movie. It shows up at the 11 minute and 17 minute markers of the video, but the whole thing is hilarious, as are all the videos in Tony's series. So check it out, foolish mortals!

  • LUKE & CARRIE'S BAD RAPPORT

LCBR123One does not simply recap MarsCon in a podcast that lasts less than 4 hours long… Well, maybe they do on other podcasts, but not us. I simply don’t have the time to edit things down, because I’m far too busy secretly writing song parodies and coordinating the creation of elaborate costumes, wigs, and props, so as to surprise said MarsCon audiences with such things, as Carrie and I are so pictured here. The primary target of this “Mighty Magiswords” related surprise of course was show-creator and Prohyas-voicer “TV’s Kyle” Carrozza and his epic wife Lindsay Smith, who join us on this podcast to talk all about the big she-bang that went down. The rest of the episode is mostly just Carrie and I recapping MarsCon 2016, inexplicably recorded on holidays again, including Easter, April Fool’s Day, and we’re posting it today which is Dr. Demento’s birthday, which isn’t a national holiday, but should be.

The comedy & music tracks in this episode are by the great Luke Ski featuring Carrie Dahlby, TV’s Kyle, Power Salad, The Frantics, The Gothsicles, Jamie Kennedy & Stu Stone featuring Bob Saget, Tenacious D, Dave Cox, The Consortium Of Genius, Tom Smith, MC Lars, Da Yoopers, Katie Goodman & Soren Kisiel, Melissa Rauch, The Arrogant Worms, and Cobra Starship.

Oh, and one more thing, PLEASE LEAVE US COMMENTS!!! Our past 2 episodes had zero comments, so please leave us some kind of comment so we know that anybody out there is actually listening to this, which I realize in and of itself is a long shot. In any case, hope you enjoy listening to the show as you simply walk into Mordor. Episode Length: 4:18:30
