Radio Free Hipster Ep. 20: Notorious Dick

It's not you; it's me.

I noticed during playback that I sound a bit bored in this ep. It's not that I was phoning it in or nuthin' – I was actually really excited about putting this ep. together – but life's been hectic and I've begun to drag ass.

Anyone else feelin' that way? Do the rest of y'all have entirely too much to do and very little motivation to see the bulk of it through? It can't be just me, right?

Must be seasonal.

But that's neither here nor there.

This time around I am kickin' it old school. There's no theme or preferred genre. There's just a bunch of songs that are a bit nerdy, and I hope you find at least a couple to your liking.
It was nice to drop another OCR track into the mix, as I haven't done that in a few eps, and, of course, I'll always go out of my way to make a Facts of Life reference.

But I reckon y'all already knew that.

Show Notes:
Intro: Baddd Spellah (feat. Beefy) – “Radio Free Hipster Theme”
My theme song could beat up your theme song.

Track 1: MC Lars - “If I Had a Time Machine the World Would be Fresh.”
Catch Lars on tour. Coming to a venue near you. Unless you live in the boonies like I do.

Z's 1 st interlude: “A glaring lack of theme.”
I haven't done a theme-free ep. in a while. It feels good.

Track 2: Five Iron Frenzy - “Wizard Needs Food Badly”
I've said before that I think rock ‘n' roll and Halloween should be left to the devil, but a good song is a good song, “Christian ska” or otherwise.

Track 3: Binster - “Blue Wizard is About to Die
I haven't done a plug for
OCR for a while, so let me say again that it's the kind of place that never disappoints when it comes to free, cool, video game-inspired music.

Track 4: Beefy - “The Legend of Jones McFly
As I mentioned: Jones is my home-skillet.

Track 5: Switchblade Kittens - “Best Friend”
The Kittens are, in essence, an all bass band. Strange but true.

Track 6: The Blanks - “The Facts of Life”
I love Scrubs , but I can't believe they killed Laverne! :(

Track 7: No Kill I - “Tranya
Clint Howard scares me. I'm just sayin'.

Track 8: IRN MNKY - “She Sells Grapevines
I love The Cult. I also love Marvin Gaye. Don't you fuckin' judge me!

Track 9: Former Fat Boys - “I Ain't Gonna Pay My Taxes
We should know on the 15th whether or not this one won the YouTube Turbo Tax contest.

Z's 2 nd interlude: “Oh, Kim Fields, you saucy little vixen!”
Kin Fields is currently with child. It is not mine. I'm just sayin'.

Track 10: Rx - “Should I Stay or Should I Go
If only The Party Party were, in fact, a legitimate political entity.

Track 11: Totally Radd! - “Video Store”
Check out the pictures from the recent Totally Radd! photo shoot. Trust me. It's worth it.

Track 12: Metamystiks Inc. feat. Armageddon Man - “Superior Beings
One of the best tracks on the last Rhyme Torrents compilation, and one of Metamystiks finest.

Track 13: Rotersand - “Exterminate Annihilate Destroy”
This one is for Dennis and Denika and anyone else who realizes that Goths are just nerds in black nail polish!

Track 14: YTCracker - “Shineback
This tracks features Metamystiks own DJ Snyder.

Z's final interlude: “… and delicious salt-water taffy.”
You just can't fuck with salt water taffy.

Track 15: Headphone Souls - “Where's Mr. Brightside's Head At
I haven't heard anything new from Headphone Souls in a while. That's kind of a letdown.

And that, as they say, is that. Thanks so much for listening.

I seem to've run a little longer than usual with this one, but it's mostly because I just kept adding songs to the playlist. I shoot for keeping each edition of RFH at approximately 45 minutes, but I make it a point to only go past the (dreaded) one hour mark on rare occasions. My number one turn-off where podcasts are concerned is length, but
I reckon 50 minutes is still fair game.

Keep those comments and song/theme suggestions coming. And feel free to holler if you just wanna shoot the breeze. I'm pretty dedicated to procrastination. :D

Great 'cast as per usual. She Sells Grapevines was brilliant. The Metamystiks/Rotersand combo worked so well that I didn't notice the song changed at first.

Denika said...

I don't know how you keep doing it. I check the site at 7:30am Pacific and there's nothing. Then I check around 8:30am and there is a new post from last night. Freakin me out.

Love that Headphone Souls smash-up. Never heard it before. I'm also psyched that you used the Rotersand track. I wonder if DP from the Takeover listens to this. He might appreciate it as well.

Now for your Japanese themed cast so I can subvert all your music choices.

Mwah ha ha ha!

Thanks, Church. Glad you dug it, bro. That Dalek double-feature just fit together naturally. And I really love both of the featured mash-ups. I’ve just been waiting for the right moment to share them.

The explanation for that one is pretty easy, Denika. I wrote a stub (mostly just a track list) for the RFH post last night. I saved the draft and then completed it this AM. The default Blogger post time is related to the origin of a post and not when it actually hits. Failing that, two words: time travel. ;) That Rotersand track fit too well not to use! And for the record, I am not opposed to a J-podcast.

Actually I’m not oppsed to the idea of just letting each listener pick a song for a future theme ep. Assuming, of course, that I have enough listeners to populate a full podcast’s worth of music!

ChurchHatesTucker said...

I like that idea a lot. That would be a very interesting cast.

Five Iron does make some good music. If you're interested, Roper and some others started a space rock project called Brave Saint Saturn. They have some good songs, most notably "I'm the DJ, He's the Rapper" and "Space Robot Five". But even as a registered holy roller (card carrying, I might add), I must agree with you that as a rule, rock and roll should be left to the devil.

Z. said...

Yeah, Soc, I’ve heard that several of the Five Iron guys have been doing some good stuff since the break-up. I appreciate the suggestions. I’m gonna have to check ‘em out. And thanks for weighing in on my “keep rock ‘n’ roll evil” remark. It’s good to know I’m not alone in my philosophy. :)
