Shockingly, this episode contains no convention recaps at all, and no toddler interruptions until at least half-way through the episode. In this episode, we talk about KFC food innovations, uneventful summer camp memories, outfit-based illnesses, and we start a new segment, “Luke’s Neurosis Of The Week”. We also discuss the recent disappearance of one of Luke’s favorite foods of all time, Mrs. Grass Chicken Noodle Soup. So if you have any in your area, please obtain it and send it to Luke immediately. Another thing you should obtain and send to Luke immediately is the 1982 K-Tel “Just For Laughs” LP. Our comedy tracks in this episode contain a heavy amount of T.D. Mischke, who recently retired from talk radio after 22 years on the air. We also have tracks by Michael Crouser, Pudding Capacity, Liam Lynch, Stephen Lynch, Avenue Q, Mike Phirman, DuJour, and The Gomers. Hope you all enjoy it, and until next time, bye-bye microphone.
Yes, this is a picture of Darkwing Duck, not Popeye. Whatever.
This episode was recorded all on the same day, and edited quickly so that I could upload it while I went out for the night. In this episode, Luke recaps OsFest and GenCon Indy 2012; Carrie gives us an updated day-in-the-life breakdown, and we do a non-spoilery review of “Kick-Ass 2″. Also, in this episode, Luke shares a couple of thoughts he had recently that made Sara declare him some kind of megalomaniacal douchebag. Will you agree with Sara? Tune in and find out.
This episode was edited using a process commonly referred to as ‘throwing it together in a big God damn hurry’, so that I could post it before I left for Omaha. I was successful, in that I was able to start uploading the MP3 to the server from home before I left, and am now posting it to the feed from a hotel room in Coralville, Iowa.
Feel free to leave us more comments here on Luke & Carrie’s Bad Rapport Video Episode #3, because I haven’t received enough praise on it yet, dammit! Comments! The emotional currency that give artists the feeling of worth! Hooray!!!
Also in this episode, Carrie tells us about her 5 mile hike during the Chicago Gay Pride Parade, and we read your comments from the past 2 episodes. Speaking of comments, please leave us comments telling us your favorite things about LukeSkiCon 2013, and/or what your favorite tracks are from “Worst Tribute Ever”! Let’s keep the positivity and excitement rolling as we gear up for FuMP Fest 2014!
Part one of this episode was recorded on May 30th (four weeks ago) at Carrie’s house with Alex. In this part we were under the impression that we’d be finishing another full episode before LukeSkiCon 2013. We were wrong.
Part two of this episode was recorded live on stage at LukeSkiCon 2013. In it, Carrie tells us what shade of pink she’s wearing, and Luke busts out some True Tales Of Ignorance From The Caricature Stand.
Part three was recorded the following day at Sweet Tomatoes in Lombard with special guest Jared Ringold of the Scope. In it, we briefly discuss the surprise of the century, which Carrie Dahlby revealed to Luke at LukeSkiCon 2013. That being, that she produced a 2-CD 100 minute tribute album titled “Worst Tribute Ever”, featuring over 2 dozen tracks of covers of Luke Ski songs by his comedy music colleagues of the FuMP!
You can get both “Worst Tribute Ever” and the new “Luke & Carrie’s Bad Rapport: Best Of 2012″ CD at the store page at thegreatLukeSki.com under compilations. And, if you’re one of the first 17 people who orders both of those CDs, Luke will throw in a copy of the Bad Rapport “Best Of 2011″ for FREE!
In this episode which was recorded mostly on Mother’s Day, Luke presents Carrie with her Mother’s Day gift from himself and Sara, which gets immediately critiqued by 14-month-old art critic Alex. Later that day, Josh was given large amounts of middle-eastern bread, but that has nothing to do with this podcast.
Carrie launches a new segment “Dahlby’s Dreamsicles”, where she tells us about her strange dreams, with Luke adding one of his own that is most definitely Insane-Ian-related.
Fact: I learned more about how to animate from Kyle Carrozza in one afternoon than I learned in my 4 years at an expensive fine arts college in Kansas City.
This epic 4 HOUR, 18 MINUTE LONG episode of Bad Rapport chronicles my recent trip to the Los Angeles area to mow the lawn of my Kickstarter super-donor Bob “Number 11″ Mathews at his birthday party, where I also did a house concert with the aforementioned TV’s Kyle and his bubbly long-time girlfriend Lindsay Smith, who also put me up at their place in Burbank for the majority of the trip. The three of us also collaborated on this episode’s artwork.
So prepare to take a vacation to sunny L.A. in the theatre of your mind, and if you haven’t already, please donate to the “Under The Smogberry Trees” Kickstarter before it ends on May 4th, so that there can finally be a feature length documentary about Dr. Demento!
That look of surprise on Captain Kirk’s face will be the same one you have when you learn that this episode is under 90 minutes long! See? I told you. The first 30 minutes of this episode has Alex in it, so if you’re not interested in his ever rapidly developing vocabulary, then you might want to skip it. Carrie tells us about their trip to Arizona, Josh has an ignorance story involving a cable company customer service rep, and Luke tells us how he broke his record for sneaking snacks into the cinema.
In this episode, Luke & Carrie go to Golf Mill Mall in Niles, Illinois, just because Carrie wanted to be somewhere that wasn’t the inside of a house. We get caught up on 3 episodes worth of comments, Carrie fills us in on the new proto-words in Alex’s vocabulary, and in a last bit of MarsCon 2013 wrap-up, Luke shows Carrie some of the ‘Boob Tree’ game cards from this year (go to the comments to get links to the images, and tips on green screening). We also reminisce about old commercial jingles & campaigns of the early to mid 80′s, and do the first (albeit sloppy, unprepared, distracted, and somewhat out of breath) installment of a new segment called “Silver Lining Reviews”, where Luke talks about “The Incredible Burt Wonderstone“, and Carrie talks about her new favorite video game app. We also have funny songs by Macklemore & Ryan Lewis featuring Wanz, Ricky Gervais & Dom Johnson, The Nick Atoms, Katherine McPhee & Christian Borle, Animaniacs, & Jimmy Fallon & Justin Timberlake. In the end the big question is, ‘is Luke Ski famous enough in the eyes of Mad Magazine?’ The answer, ‘probably not’.
