The Great Luke Ski is a multi-talented man.  He is energetic, entertaining, genuine and hilarious. He does stand up, music, cartoons, collects everything, is a member of The FuMP and gave us his time for an interview.   

Luke Ski is Dr. Demento’s most requested artist of the 21st century. Replacing the earlier top-requested, Weird Al. He has also won Logan Awards for Snoopy the Dogg and When You Wish Upon a Death Star. He does a podcast, Bad Rapport with fellow FuMP member, Carrie Dahlby. He is a regular convention performer and this year would be his 20th performing the Gen Con in Indianapolis.

You can read more about Luke at his About Page. You can also listen in as Luke and Lumpy discuss:

The Great Luke is a regular to many cons, according to his website:

San Diego Comic-Con, Star Wars Celebration, Dragon*Con, WorldCon, NASFIC, Creation’s 40th Anniversary Star Trek Convention, GenCon Indy, Origins, Nerdapalooza and many more. He also is the chair of the comedy music track at MarsCon in the Twin Cities (marscondementia.com).

If at all possible, I suggest you catch up with Luke Ski when he is on the road.  He also often works with others such as members of the FuMP.  This year at Gen Con he did a Friday Night Live show which included many other comedy musicians and had Whitney Avalon perform a few at another show he did at Gen Con this year.  Of note,  Whitney Avalon and Jonathan Hurley won a Logan award, Outstanding Comedy Music Video, for That Doesn’t Make Sense.

Cats, Hobbits and Sci-Fi, An Excellent Fit for Gen Con

Before we even begin, I wish to caution the listener that some of this material may be NSFW (Not Safe For Work).  Listener discretion is advised.

Marc’s music is characterized not only by its Celtic style but wit, humor and is often themed by sci-fi, Tolkien or cats.  He is creative and entertaining.  He is also another talent performing at Gen Con this year.  Lumpy can’t wait to meet Marc at his booth this year.

Podcaster, Musician, Cartoonist and an Awesome Dude – The Great Luke Ski

The Great Luke SkiBefore we even get started, I am not biased… I just have good taste and recognize amazing talent.  I have been a fan of this man an his work for as long as I have been a DJ who spins indie music.  I don’t think I am exaggerating, below are a few reasons why:

I know many of you love The FuMP (,short for Funny Music Project).  For those of you who are unaware, The FuMP is a hilarious troop of assorted comedy musicians.  If you are a regular listener to Indie Nation, I am certain you have heard at least some of their music.

I am sorry that I got word of this event after the early registration deadline.  However, I think it is still a steal at the regular price…. especially if you take into the account that Dr. Demento will the guest of honor. This year’s fest will be in Wheeling, IL on June 20-22 and registration is 45 dollars.

Concerts, panels and games! Seriously, how can you beat that?  For more information and to register go to FuMPFest.com.  I am sure that once you check out the schedule, you shall be as enticed by the event as I.

2012.06.22 – Stupid As Charged

Bardus est ut Bardus Does

This week’s “Stupid As Charged” consists of three stories which all share the theme of stupid, dumb, strange, weird or in some other manner are worthy of a dunce cap rating. In particular this episode; Robbed you thrice, same place, and almost got away with it, drug money, a dirty cop, strippers, and you got a DUI?!? That’s okay, I left the baby on the roof.
