Ice King Baby request - 400

Two weeks ago, Dr. Demento was nice enough to play my latest parody tribute song "Ice King Baby" on his show! How 'cool' of him! Get it? 'Cool'? Of course you do. Anyway, if you'd like to see that track make "The Dr. Demento Show's" Top 10 for August 2015, then please go and REQUEST for him to play it again at http://drdemento.com/request , and when you do be sure to include your email address, so it counts towards the tally for the monthly Top 10!

And as always, I'd also like to encourage you to listen to "The Dr. Demento Show" every week! It's still the best show ever, full of the classic mad music and crazy comedy you love, as well as the deep cut rarities and new stuff from guys like me and my co-horts at the FuMP. There's a new 2-hour show posted every week, and hundreds more from the past 44 years in his archives! You can hear it all at http://drdemento.com/online.html


Episode #120 - Joe Nobody And The Beast Machine

LCBR120It's our second annual recap of the events of FuMPFeST! Luke & Carrie break down their weekend at the Funny Music Project Festival for 2015 from each of their points of view; Carrie's done while managing a toddler, and Luke's done while managing the fact that this was the first time he has visited home since heading off to Cartoon-land.

Following that, Carrie and Luke take turns getting caught up with other cool events of their respective past June, including Carrie's lap-dance-tastic time at a "Weird Al" concert, and Luke's first ever time recording voices for animation at a "Mighty MagiSwords" session.

Inspired by the Scope podcast's Episode #207 YouTube thumbnail image of Luke & Kyle coupled with their episode title "Joe Nobody And The Beast Machine" across their chests (which I assume is the maniacal workings of Jared Ringold), Luke and Kyle decided that "Joe Nobody And The Beast Machine" are their A.M. Radio Disc Jockey Personas, which we shift into frequently during the "What's Luke Plugging Now?" segment.

This episode's comedy & music tracks are by some combination of TV's Kyle featuring Lindsay Smith, Joe Caruso, Scooter Picnic, Carrie Dahlby, the great Luke Ski, Slick Rick & Doug E. Fresh, Devo Spice, Rhett & Link, Insane Ian featuring Bonecage, Whitney Avalon & Yvonne Strahovski, Michael Aitch Price And His Musical Miscreants, Ookla The Mok, Eddie Lawrence, Whimsical Will, "Blasted Bill" Putt  featuring Cirque du So What?, Stephen Colbert, & Eclectic Method.

Indicators seem to indicate that this podcast has become monthly, and each episode will be nearly 4 hours long. We'll all just have to wait and see if that remains or not. So step on up and get'cher content, internet consumers! Episode Length: 3:45:37

Episode #121 - Luke & Stephanie's Good Rapport 2

LCBR121The first part of this episode features the return of one of Luke’s best friends, Stephanie, who came out to California so she could celebrate her 40th birthday at Disneyland with Luke. They recap her visit while driving through East L.A., eating at Wienerschnitzel, and driving through Burbank just before she left to take the train home.

The second part is our Gen Con Indy 2015 recap, which starts off at Gen Con itself with Luke, Carrie, Ken, Sara, Erin, & Alex. We finish it up on Skype with just Luke & Carrie after Luke returned to Burbank.

The third part has Carrie recapping her July & August, followed by Luke doing the same. Then we read your comments, and cut to Luke & Kyle letting you know ‘What’s Luke Plugging Now?’

The comedy and music tracks in the episode are by Cheech & Chong, The Muppets, Epic Rap Battles Of History, Disney, The Aristocats, Steven Universe, Adventure Time, the great Luke Ski, Mighty MagiSwords, Monty Python’s Spamalot, Art Paul Schlosser,Power Salad, Throwing Toasters, Rowdy Roddy Piper, & Game Grumps Animated.

It’ll be quite a while until we put out another episode. If I had to guess, I’d say late October at the earliest, but we make no promises. So Carrie and I sincerely hope you enjoy this episode until whenever the next episode happens. In the mean time, you can still hear Luke every other Sunday on “Kyle & Luke Talk About Toons” (http://www.kyleandluke.com), and rejoice for the return of Luke & Carrie’s favorite podcast, “Flat 29’s Big Book Of Everything”, which can be heard at http://www.flat29.com ! If you were to ask Emperor Palpatine if you should listen to those podcasts, he would tell you to “DO IT!”  Episode length: 3:11:33

I've been wanting to do a comedy song tribute to the Cartoon Network series "Adventure Time" for about 4 years now. Almost immediately upon deciding to do this, a parody idea popped into my head, but I put it aside because I wanted to see if I could come up with a better and also original song idea to do instead. In all that time, I couldn't come up with one that I thought was worthy, which was at least partially because the songs that occasionally pop up in actual episodes of "Adventure Time" are all so well done, and so perfectly encapsulate all the emotions of these complex characters in this very layered story whose deep mythos grows faster than fanfiction.

Cut to a few months ago, I knew I wanted to have a new comedy song to world premiere at my live concert performances at Gen Con Indy 2015, so I took a look at my long list of various song ideas, and there was this old, silly, super-obvious, dumb parody idea waving right back at me, like the Banana Man floating in space. Well I didn't need the Cosmic Owl to tell me that it was time for me to put my reservations aside, sit down and rewatch all 199 episodes of "Adventure Time" again and take extensive notes (oh yes I lumpin' did), and then sit down to 'Penn' this little tune. So without further boom-boom, here is my tribute to the most tragic fictional character in modern literature: the awesome, ridiculously hilarious, and totally insane wizard known as the Ice King, set to the most popular song ever released by one Mr. Robert Matthew Van Winkle. I hope all you hardcore "Adventure Time" fans think the track is mathematical, and that it doesn't really smell like dog buns.

Voice cast: 
Luke Ski as the Ice KingJake The Dog, and most everyone else
Jace McClain as Finn the Human
Tia Ballard as (it's a surprise, you'll figure it out)

Music, mixing, & mastering by Jace McClain of the band Nuclear Bubble Wrap (who did their own awesome song about "Adventure Time" available here at the Funny Music Project, a.k.a. TheFuMP.com)

I, "Luke Ski", am currently working at Cartoon Network as a storyboard revisionist on their new digital series "Mighty MagiSwords", and have been making nerdy comedy songs on geeky and other pop-culture topics for over 20 years, very many of which have been about cartoons, both on TV as well as animated features. To find all of them, you can search through my artist page here at the FuMP, or go explore LukeSki.Bandcamp.com . #babygotbrak

Back in 2013, Doug Walker, a.k.a. The Nostalgia Critic, a.k.a. "That Guy With The Glasses" of Channel Awesome internet fame, came to me asking if he could hire me to come up with a short song for his forthcoming online video review of "Jurassic Park", the classic 1993 blockbuster which at the time had been re-released in theaters in 3-D.  What he needed was an awesome obscenity-laden power hook to serve as the theme song for the film's best character, the Tyrannosaurus Rex. I Garagebanded up a quick piece of basic music and screamed words that my Mom doesn't like into a microphone, and voila, I had something that worked for Doug's review. Doug also had an idea to expand upon the hook, and do a 'song' in which the T-Rex in the modern world talks about its day to day life, the problems it encounters, and how it deals with said problems (spoiler alert: violently). He recorded some spoken work pieces as the T-Rex, edited it together, and put the track up on his Bandcamp page.

As much as I enjoyed his review and his song, I always thought the song could have been something more, especially in the 'Luke Ski actually writes and raps lyrics heard in the song' department. So for my 2014 album "4th Grade Talent Show", Doug was gracious enough to allow me to expand the song into something more complex lyrically and musically, re-recording all his spoken parts which I mixed into my new music and vocals. With added musical frog-DNA from TV's Kyle, the song finally became the ground-shaking, plastic-water-cup-virating epic that the greatest predator to ever walk the earth deserves.

So since "Jurassic World" hits the movie theaters this week, I figured it made sense to finally post this song to the Funny Music Project (a.k.a. The FuMP .com) to get you all psyched for the awesomest Chris Pratt movie to come out since the last 2 awesome Chris Pratt movies. It'll be a free download at the FuMP dot com through July 2nd.

If you're a newbie here, you can hear more nerdy comedy music by the great Luke Ski at my artist page here at the FuMP, and my Bandcamp page.

Finally, be sure to check out the Nostalgia Critic's video review of "Jurassic World", featuring an epic climax set to excerpts of "The T-Rex Song (Director's Cut)"!

It's been over a year in the making, but at my main stage concert at FuMPFeST 2015, I finally world premiered the new fan video made by "Dr. Don" Coleman for my "Family Guy" tribute song "Gettin' Giggity Wit It"! Don painstakingly scoured through dozens of Family Guy episodes to put this together over the past year and a half, and I am thrilled that we are finally sharing it with the world!

What makes this fanvid extra special is that I created 9 seconds of cartoon animation for the "Let's Get The Tardis" part of the song! This was my biggest animation effort to date, and I'm pretty happy with how it came out! You can see it at the 1:29 mark of the video. I've also made a couple of looping animated GIFs of those 9 seconds, in FULL SIZE and at 600 PIXELS WIDE.

So please watch Don's video and tell him what a great job he did, and share it (and the GIFs) with the world! 😀
