|Logan Awards Kickstarter launched! Bad Rapport #102, Kyle & Luke #14! - Luke Ski Update 4/15/14
Happy Tax Day! I hope you're all with your loved ones eating corned beef and cabbage, or whatever it is you're supposed to do on this holiday. Anyway, no one responded to my last email update with my new shortened format. So, no news is good news, I guess? Gonna add some images to this message, because pictures are purty. Also, yesterday I just began working on my 11th full length comedy music album. I'll be creating 8 to 14 new songs plus interstitial material over the next 15 weeks. The album drops in August, so get excited, people. Until then, here's the latest news and stuff. :)~ Luke Ski 4/15/2014~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~HEADLINES:- FuMP LAUNCHES KICKSTARTER FOR LOGAN AWARDS STATUETTES!Prizes include "LUKESKICON 2013" LIVE ALBUM and much more!Donation page: http://tinyurl.com/loganawardsYouTube video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HObT7NsxTG8Article at my website: http://www.thegreatlukeski.com/2014/04/14/logan-awards-kickstarter/- PODCASTS:LUKE & CARRIE'S BAD RAPPORTEpisode #102 – Overreacting Is Your Jamhttp://badrapport.com/2014/04/09/episode-102-overreacting-is-your-jam/KYLE & LUKE TALK ABOUT TOONSEpisode #14 - Muppets From SPACESHIP!!!http://www.kyleandluke.com - http://www.facebook.com/kyleandlukeTHE FUNNY MUSIC PODCASTEpisodes #199-#200http://www.thefump.com/podcast.phpDetails: http://www.thegreatlukeski.com/2014/04/15/podcasts-41514/- LUKE'S APRIL FOOLS DAY ARTICLE:http://www.thegreatlukeski.com/2014/04/01/luke-ski-announces-scud-tribute-concept-album/REMINDERS:- "FAKE ADULT" HITS #5 ON DR.

|The FuMP has launched a new Kickstarter to help pay for the Logan Awards statuettes
The 2014 Logan Awards
are just over 2 months away. Soon the Jurors will have all submitted their picks for the funniest songs of 2013, and once our chair "Blasted Bill" Putt has tabulated the winners, it will be time for him to order the engraved 'Robot Cat" statuettes, and those things cost boku-bucks. That's why we've launched this Kickstarter
, to pay for this year's Logan Awards statues, and if we hit that goal, even more to save up a 'battle chest' of funds to pay for future year's statues.
Some of the prizes for donating include: an album of live music recorded at Luke Ski's private Kickstarter party event "LukeSkiCon 2013", a video presentation of highlights of live comedy music performances performed at the first 3 "Logan Awards" ceremonies, a Logan Awards t-shirt, an appearance on the FuMPcast, custom made comedy songs and house concerts by Luke Ski, Devo Spice, Insane Ian, TV's Kyle, Worm Quartet, Power Salad, Carrie Dahlby, Phil Johnson, Tony Goldmark
(song only), Eric Coleman
and Steve Goodie
(house concert only).
ends on May 14th, so please donate today, and please share this with all your friends online who love comedy music!

|FuMPFeST $35 reg. ends tonight; Logan Awards deadline Thursday; Request "Fake Adult" Luke Ski Update
I'm trying something new with my email updates and my website. Rather than posting longer messages every month or two at my
website, I'm going to post short messages about specific news items. That way, in my fortnightly-ish email updates, I can just put the headlines, the direct link to whatever that headline is about, and then a link to its corresponding story at my website for the full details for anybody who wants to read more about it. Hopefully, this will lead to my website having the most up to date news about me and what I'm up to with very little repeated content, as well as reducing the size of my email updates to just the most getting-directly-to-the-point information, with links to the rest of the details for those who want to read more. Please let me know what you think of this new version of the Luke Ski Updates, and thanks for reading. :) ~ Luke Ski 3/31/2014

|"Because Of Bob" song & album! Bad Rapport #100! "Fake Adult" is #7! - Luke Ski Update 3/13/14
MarsCon 2014 was not the only big project thing of mine that came to a conclusion over the past week. I also either handed or mailed off the final printed CD album of my Kickstarter donor songs to those donors, officially bringing my 2012 Kickstarter for "Luke Ski's AV Concert Rig" to an end. I'm going to do a video / blog post about it via the KS site soon, but the main point is that other than these songs getting delivered about 6 months late, the Kickstarter campaign was a total success. Thanks again to everyone who donated. Your contributions have gotten me the gear that has improved my performances and creative output immensely. I am likely going to do another Kickstarter in the fall for the purpose of acquiring one specific expensive piece of equipment. But until then, I have a new Luke Ski comedy music album to write, record, and release at GenCon Indy 2014. :) And now, the post-MarsCon-2014 news.~ Luke Ski, 3/13/2014~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ HEADLINES:- "BECAUSE OF BOB", the new song by the great Luke Ski!Download the a free MP3 now at the FuMP! http://www.thefump.comWatch the music video at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pHwy6RxdnU8- "BECAUSE OF BOB: LUKE SKI'S KICKSTARTER FAWM ALBUM

|New Luke Ski FAWM song! MarsCon cartoon t-shirt! New Bad Rapport - Luke Ski Update 2/12/2014
So, according to MailChimp, I have about 800 subscribers to this e-mailing list. Of those, only 150 actually open and read the email. Of those, between 0 and 5 people actually click on any of the links. So as I type these words, I wonder if anyone is actually reading them, and if my fortnightly/monthly efforts to keep everyone up to date with all-things-me-related is worth the exorbitant amount of time and effort I am putting into it. I'm too deep into MarsCon season to change my ways now, but as the year progresses, I may reconsider my promotional efforts. If any of you have any thoughts on it, please let me know.

|MarsCon D.T. logo t-shirt deadline reminder!
Hey everyone. This is just a reminder that TODAY IS THE LAST DAY you can put in your order for the new screenprinted "MarsCon Dementia Track" logo t-shirt:Link: http://marscondementia.com/products-page/t-shirts/marscon-dementia-track-t-shirtIt's $30.00 for any size.Yes, I realize that's a lot to ask for a t-shirt, but remember this is a Fund Raiser, and t-shirts cost a lot more to make than CDs or MP3s. Speaking of which, you can still get this year's 3-CD set with instant MP3 download for $30, or the MP3 download only version for $20 for the 2014 set, and for all of our previous year's sets at the Fundraiser Shop at http://marscondementia.com . I'll be back tomorrow for a full Luke Ski Update. Thanks,Luke

|Request "Fake Adult"; MarsCon Fund Raiser at 70%; New "Bad Rapport" - Luke Ski Update 1/30/14
Thanks so much to everyone who sent me well-wishes and comments on my new FuMP song "Fake Adult" on my 40th birthday. You are all awesome and appreciated. :)Speaking of birthdays, yesterday was the 20th birthday / anniversary of the comic book "Scud: The Disposable Assassin". Creator and 'Mountain Dew guy' Rob Schrab asked his fans to post fan art birthday cards for Scud. Rather than creating a new piece of fan art, I created a cover version of the orignal "Scud Rap" from the Sega Saturn 1997 video game. I then took a whole lot of Scud fan art I did in the 90's and made a image gallery music video and put it on YouTube. Then, I posted all that old fan art to my Scud fan art galley on my Deviant Art page."Scud Rap" cover by Luke Ski video:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xW2AbFLtjJcLuke Ski's "Scud" fan art gallery at Deviant Art:http://artbylukeski.deviantart.com/gallery/43357561So much love and thanks to Rob Schrab for creating my favorite piece of media ever. And if you haven't read "Scud: The Disposable Assassin - The Whole Shebang!" Omnibus yet, then OH MY GOD WHY NOT GO GET IT NOW!!!And now, the usual news news and pluggery of important recent things.~ Luke Ski, 1/30/2014~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
