Episode #125 – Prohyas & Vambre’s Best Rapport

LCBR125As soon as I finished editing and posting this episode, I came to the website to post it and discovered a whole bunch of comments from people that never got displayed at the website because they were not ‘Approved’, because the site stopped emailing me the notifications that alerted me to their existence and need for approval. So to all the people whose comments didn’t get read, I apologize, and I will read your comments on the next episode, and get your numbers assigned to you. Thanks so much for listening and commenting! :)

In this episode, Carrie delves headlong into the world of PokeMon Go, we talk about our “Day Out With Thomas” the Tank Engine, and Luke tells us what he did this summer. We also have a segment recorded live at FuMPFeST 2016 we did in character and in costume as Prohyas and Vambre Warrior from “Mighty MagiSwords”. Our comedy and music tracks this time around are by Steve GoodieFlobotsSean CullenTV’s Kyle“Weird Al” YankovicLemon Demonthe great Luke Ski featuring Carrie DahlbyMighty MagiSwordsInsane Ian featuring Devo SpiceNuclear Bubble WrapBuckner & GarciaMC Lars & SposeBig DaddyStraight No ChaserAlex RaseyPower SaladThe GomersThe Gothsicles featuring Worm QuartetHot WafflesArt Paul SchlosserPaul & StormThe Library BardsFlight Of The Conchords, & Marc Gunn.

Episode #124 – Mammogramophone

lcbr124bYou give us 2 months, we’ll give you an episode. This time around we read the massive glut of COMMENTS from all 16 OF OUR LISTENERS! Yes, the numbering of our listeners has begun! If you’d like to get assigned a number and be counted among the over-a-dozen listeners we’ve amassed in the 6+ years we’ve been doing this podcast, then leave a comment here, or call 916-LUKE-SKI and leave a comment on our voice mail line!

We also review Season One of “DC’s Legends Of Tomorrow”, the only TV show Carrie has been able to keep current on amid her busy parenting lifestyle. How much of that has to do with actor Wentworth Miller, we can only speculate. We also get caught up on what we’ve been up to lately, and Carrie invents a new form of hands-free lingerie-mounted Skype device.

Episode #123 – Enthusiastic, Sober, And Paying Attention

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 #122 – Ottoman Subterfuge

LCBR1226 months to the day since our last episode, Luke & Carrie’s Bad Rapport returns from it’s long hiatus with an episode recorded mostly on or near major holidays. Those being Halloween (at Disneyland), Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year’s Day, and today, which is Carrie’s Birthday!

While we don’t recap everything that’s happened in the past 6 months, we do touch upon many of the highlights, including Carrie & Alex’s trip to California to visit Luke, and Luke’s continued experiences at his awesome new job as a storyboarder, writer, and voice-over person for “Mighty MagiSwords” at Cartoon Network.

Luke is currently preparing for MarsCon 2016, and the annual Fund Raiser album full of live tracks from MarsCon 2015 is available at the shop page at MarsConDementia.com. It’s just $20 for the 4-hour-long downloadable album. And if you’d like to hear a 30 minute long FREE PREVIEW of the collection, go to ManicMondays.net and listen to episode #450 (we usually post that here, but this time Devo Spice was kind enough to let us post it there).

The comedy & music tracks for this episode are by the cast of Frozen Fever, The Nerdist featuring Whitney Avalon, TV’s Kyle featuring Lindzilla, Shel Silverstein, Steve Goodie, Jimmy Fallon & Justin Timberlake, Da Yoopers, Tom Lehrer, The FuMP, Schaffer The Darklord, The Rifftones, Doc & Mharti, Rick & Morty via Eclectic Method, Epic Rap Battles Of History, Game Grumps, and “Weird Al” Yankovic.

So rejoice, y’all. “Bad Rapport” is back. I don’t know how often we’ll be posting new episodes, but it’ll surely be much more frequently than one every 6 months. Hope to see you all at MarsCon 2016.

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 #120 – Joe Nobody And The Beast Machine

It’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 #119 – It’s Gwar Meets Cars And Trucks And Things That Go

LCBR119 copyIt’s been a month, so here’s a 4-hour long episode. I ain’t even gonna pretend like I care that it’s that long. Besides, it’ll be something people can listen to traveling on their way to FuMPFeST 2015 which starts in less than a week. So let me see if I can remember all of what’s in this episode…

Our first segment is a “Rapport Of Destiny” segment where Carrie is joined by the one and only Moonbeam of the podcast “Blasted Bill & Moonbeam’s Pod Of Destiny”. Capping that segment is a recording from one of Carrie’s YouTube videos in which Alex has a highly inquisitive conversation with his father Josh.

Next Carrie and I chat and she tells me all about what she’s been doing this month, including seeing “Mad Max: Fury Road”, her summation of which is the title of this episode. Then we read a whole bunch of your comments from the past few episodes which WordPress had been hiding from me for months.

Next, Carrie is joined by Ken Sherlock of “Let’s call Ken” fame, as they talk about seeing the movie “UHF” live at the Music Box Theatre in Chicago, which was followed by a Q&A with “Weird Al” Yankovic and director Jay Levey.

Then Luke is joined by Insane Ian via Skype to tell us what he’s been up to the past month, including the exciting long-awaited release of “Mighty Magiswords” content to the world via Cartoon Network’s website and the “Cartoon Network Anything” App (Get the details at Luke’s website). Then we wrap up by Luke finishing off his list of unused song ideas, with Ian throwing in a couple of his own.

This week’s comedy & music tracks are by Ron Low, Monty Python, Family Guy, “Weird Al” Yankovic, Kyle Kallgren & Tony Goldmark, Epic Rap Battles Of History, mc chris, Mikey Mason, The Boobles, Heathcliff & The Catillac Cats, TV’s Kyle & the great Luke Ski, Duck Dodgers, T-Spoon, “Chicago”, Raymond & Scum, and Garden Fresh.

Until next time, Bad Rapport just won’t be outdone. You should realize, we can win it with YOU! #obscure80scartoonthemesonglyrics

Episode #118 – Subject Everyone To The Slurping

LCBR118In this episode, Carrie tells us what Alex did to get his ball pit taken away for a month, and about the mysterious appearance of some potentially prophetic balloons in her backyard. Luke tells us about fulfilling another life-long dream at the Magic Kingdom and helping the “Some Jerk With A Camera” crew film some segments for their respective web review shows at Disneyland.

Then we have a new segment where Luke catches up with old friends who live in the L.A. area. This time around it’s his old Kansas City ComedySportz compadre Mike Guthrie, who has been performing in some comedy and burlesque shows. Luke tells Mike of a Hollywood cliche milestone that happened to him earlier that day while doing his laundry.

Finally, we have the first half of a discussion of ‘comedy song ideas we never got around to doing, and likely never will’. Luke kicks this off, since he happened to have made a printed list of old unused song ideas handy from when he made his last album a year ago. He’ll continue his list, along with Carrie telling us some of her unused song ideas, in our next episode.

This episode’s comedy & music tracks are by Gogol Bordello, Ookla The Mok, Worm Quartet, Richard Cheese, Danger Doom, Tony Goldmark, The Nick Atoms, Family Guy, Pudding Capacity, The Arrogant Worms, Kansas City ComedySportz, Carrie Dahlby featuring Erin Sherlock, TV’s Kyle, Insane Ian, and The Crest featuring Eyebeams.

This episode also has what may be the most entertaining edition of “What’s Luke Plugging Now?” ever, featuring 2 special guests, only one of whom is human.

Episode Length: 2:49:03

Episode #117 – Would You Like To Buy A Monkey?

LCBR117In our first California-produced episode, we start off with a segment recorded at Carrie’s house with Alex just minutes before Luke leaves for the last time before driving to Burbank with Sara. The second segment was recorded at Not-A-Burger stand with Kyle & Lindsay, where Sara and Luke recount their journey on the road. The third segment was recorded at Canter’s with Tony Goldmark and the cast of “Some Jerk With A Camera. The fourth segment was recorded via Skype with Carrie on Easter Sunday, so they can get caught up with each other, and so Luke can report on his first week at work at Cartoon Network.

Then, after what seems like the end of the episode, we have an additional segment (with songs) recorded with the “Some Jerk” crew at Cantors, in which Charlie and Morgan tell a 33-minute story of their most bizarre Disney World trip ever.

This episode features comedy tracks, some of which are Easter-themed, by Yo Gabba Gabba, “Crazy People”, Brak (Cartoon Planet) featuring Freddie Prinze Jr., TV’s Kyle, Gilbert Gottfried & Owen Suskind, Carrie Dahlby, Paul & Storm, Patton Oswalt, Schaffer The Darklord, Tony Goldmark, Insane Ian, Tenacious D, & The Nick Atoms. So devour a bucket of peeps, and ride through your sugar rush with Luke and Carrie and all our guests on Bad Rapport!

Episode #116 – Moonlight Over Winfield And Burbank

LCBR116When you go 6 weeks without posting an episode because it’s the busiest time of your year, that’s how you end up with a 4-HOUR-LONG EPISODE. So just think of this as 3 episodes smushed together, and let’s get down to business, shall we?

A great amount of this episode is coverage of the MarsCon 2015 Dementia Track, featuring the great Luke Ski, Sara Trice, Tony Goldmark, Devo Spice, ShoEboX of Worm Quartet, Chris Mezzolesta of Power Salad, TV’s Kyle, Lindsay Carrozza, Kevin Eldridge & Kornflake of the Flopcast, and in a later-at-home recap, Carrie Dahlby.

The middle segment of this episode was taken from Episode #38 of my other podcast “Kyle & Luke Talk About Toons”, in which Kyle Carrozza explains the series of events that resulted in it coming to pass that I, Luke Ski, am heading out to live on he & Lindsay’s couch in Burbank, California for at least 4 to 6 months while I work on the creative team producing Kyle’s new cartoon show “Mighty MagiSwords” for Cartoon Network. Yes, for real. I am going to go work for, and at, Cartoon Network. Take a moment to yourself to freak out about this, as I do virtually every second of my life since I found out the news. (If you already heard this segment on “Toons”, then skip ahead 21 minutes.) We also get Carrie’s reaction to the news that I am leaving town, not sure if this cross-country move is going to be temporary or permanent, and its potential effect on everyone’s favorite lunar-obsessed newly 3-year-old kiddo, Alex.

This episode’s comedy tracks are by Raymond & Scum, Moxy Fruvous, Schaffer The Darklord, Sponge Awareness Foundation, TV’s Kyle featuring Lindsay Carrozza, Rob Paravonian, the great Luke Ski, Mikey Mason, Ookla The Mok, Family Guy, Patton Oswalt, Henry Phillips, Trevor Moore, Whitney Avalon featuring Sarah Michelle Gellar, Tom ‘T-Bone’ Stankus, The Nick Atoms, Danger Doom, Monty Python’s Spamalot, and Tegan & Sara featuring the Lonely Island live at the 2015 Oscars.

We don’t know how frequently new episodes of “Bad Rapport” will come out after this one, but we do know we want the show to continue, even if it becomes an only-once-in-a-while podcast. In any case, thanks for listening, and thanks for caring. Please leave us some comments, and we’ll talk to you all in not-too-many-moons from now.

Episode length: 4:00:00
