- “WHEN YOU WISH UPON A DEATH STAR” WINS ‘OUTSTANDING PARODY SONG’ OF 2012 AT THE 2013 LOGAN AWARDS!
I was very honored and moved this past weekend to have won the Logan Award for ‘Outstanding Parody Song’ of 2012 for my Disney-buys-Lucasfilm medley “When You Wish Upon A Death Star”. I want to thank Bob Emmet, Chris Mezzolesta, and Carrie Dahlby for helping me turn my vision for this piece into an awesome audio reality, I couldn’t have done it without you. I want to thank this year’s jurors and permanent juror Dr. Demento for their support, Sara Trice for stepping in to tabulate the winners & order the statues, Rob Balder for founding the awards, and of course the fans who suggested my song for nomination. If you think I take this honor lightly, well, go watch the Logan Awards ceremony and see how I reacted when it was announced that I had won. (You’ll also see the opening of the show featuring a really cool new musical number with myself, TV’s Kyle, Insane Ian, & Carrie Dahlby.) This year’s Logan Awards ceremony can be seen here:

- “WHEN YOU WISH UPON A DEATH STAR” WAS #2 ON DR. DEMENTO’S TOP TEN FOR FEBRUARY 2013!
For the third Top Ten in a row, “When You Wish Upon A Death Star” was near the top of Dr. Demento’s monthly countdown, this time at #2! Thank you all so much to everyone who has been requesting it! Right now, “Death Star” is the most requested song of 2013 on “The Dr. Demento Show”! It’s pretty early in the year, so who knows what will happen in the months to come! So, if you’d like to see “When You Wish Upon A Death Star” continue to top 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!

- “THE FuMPET SHOW”, A MUPPET SHOW PARODY BY LUKE SKI & THE FuMP!
Rather than doing a comedy sketch live on stage for Opening Ceremonies like we usually do at MarsCon, I talked my O.C. partner Earl into letting me take the reigns to do something I had wanted to do for a couple of years, a 20-minute video parody of “The Muppet Show” done starring the puppets, voices, & songs of the FuMP acts, done in tribute to MarsCon itself. This being the 10th year of the MarsCon Dementia Track, it was the perfect time to make it happen. I worked on this non-stop for 4 weeks straight (with the help of many friends, family, & FuMP colleagues), finishing it 5 days before I was to leave for MarsCon. So please go check it out, and if you like it, share it with your friends online via Facebook, Twitter, or whatever social media you frequently use. I hope it makes you so happy that you do a Kermit arm flail and say “YAAAAAY!!!” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CLGsgi_L0os
