"LUKE SKI" NEWS:

– "LET'S HELP LUKE!" INDIEGOGO FOR NEW SONGS IS ALREADY FUNDED!
When I visited Carrie Dahlby just before New Year's Eve, I told her of a couple of song parody ideas I had come up with. Carrie felt very strongly that I had to make these song parodies happen for MarsCon 2020. I told her I couldn't because I couldn't afford to have the music mixed and mastered. Carrie offered to run an IndieGogo campaign in conjunction with my music maker for these tracks, Jace McClain, with a goal of $705 for production of the 2 songs, and a deadline date of January 28th. Well, in a surprising turn of events, the thing got funded before I had the chance to send out this email update. But, since this Update is coming out with a week to spare before the deadline, I figured I'd plug it anyway, because I am offering some rewards you guys might want to get. The funds raised above our goal amount will go towards future Luke Ski song tracks & mixing.

"Spider Verses" by Devo Spice featuring Creative Mind Frame (aka 1-UP), Insane Ian, Bonnie Gordon of the Library Bards, TV's Kyle, LEX the Lexicon Artist, & the great Luke Ski was the #1 most requested song of 2019 on "The Dr. Demento Show's" Funny 25 Countdown!!!

My inclusion in this song as the writer and performer of the 7th verse as "Spider-Noir" continues my 18-year-streak of having written and performed on at least one song on every Dr. Demento Show Funny 25 Countdown since 2002! So thank you so much Devo for allowing me to be involved! This track came out amazing and spectacular!

Congrats also to
the Library Bards for their song "Comic Fan" hitting #5, and to Il Neige with "Everyone's Here" hitting #7 on the countdown!

Holy crap, I think I may have finally reached the end of this update. Only thing left to do now is to copy-and-paste on the "reminders" section at the end. To any of you who actually read through these whole things, thank you. My life is weird right now, and there are many other things that generally need to take priority over making fully comprehensive updates like this. Nonetheless, I will do my best to try to put these out once every one-to-two months at the latest, so my backlog of things I want to plug doesn't end up being old news by the time it gets to you. Thanks again, and I hope you all are having a great winter.
