Radio Free Hipster Ep. 23: Analogue

Despite my newly-taxed schedule, I still found time to slap together another edition of Radio Free Hipster. Who loves ya, baby?
This one came together pretty easily, and that always worries me. When a show comes together with minimal effort on my part, when the songs just sort of fit together on their own without me having to hammer out the ends and spot weld the bastards together, I worry that it sucks.
Hell, maybe it does.
If so, I'm sure ya'll'll let me know.
That's an integral part of our little arrangement.

Show Notes:
Intro: Baddd Spellah (feat. Beefy) – “Radio Free Hipster Theme”
There is no alternate/equivalent of this song. Much like the cheese, it stands alone.
Track 1: Shael Riley – “Float On”
Shael got the opening spot two eps. in a row. I'm not sure if that's an honor or not.
Z's 1st interlude: “Two very divergent impressions of the same source material .”
This type of song arrangement appeals to my OCD. I hope y'all dig it too.

Track 2: Rx – “Sunday Bloody Sunday
I've had this song waiting in the wings since episode 2. Now seemed like a good time to spring it on you.

Track 3: Optimus Rhyme – “Ping Pong Song”
Is there a nerdier sport than ping pong? This is not a rhetorical question.
Track 4: Q-Unit – “Crazy Little Pimp Called Love
I fancy myself as beyond idle misogyny, so I am ceaselessly surprised when I find myself shouted “SHIT, TRICK!” whenever I hear this track.

Track 5: NESkimos – “Mega Man X: Sigma Level 1
The map system in Mega Man ZX really pisses me off. That's not particularly relevant, but I wanted to get it off my chest.

Track 6: Optimiss – “Wiid (optimisssurfix)
I love this remix so much more than the original track it makes me a bit embarrassed.

Track 7: J. Thomas Jeans – “Simple Piano
There are a ton of amazing re-imaginings of Delia's classic over at Who Mix!

Z's 2nd interlude: “Being the opportunistic bastard that I am…”
You heard it hear first, folks.

Track 8: R34pz – “Modern Vintage
This may not be my favorite Who Mix, but it sure as hell has may favorite title.

Track 9: nYgel – “Stay Wiid
I like nYgel and mc chris, but I must deduct points from both for capitalization.

Track 10: housethegrate – “Light in the Fortress
OverClocked ReMix. Need I say more?

Track 11: 50 Pence – “P.I.N.T.
Keep her off my pint ‘cause I think her wart's catching.”

Track 12: Baddd Spellah – “Ping Pong Song Remix”
I demand an ORPPRB branded sweatband.

Track 13: Party Ben – “Callin' On Sunday
Lyrics Born may not be nerdcore, but he is nerdy as fuck regardless.

Z's final interlude: “Underwhelming product endorsements.”
My apologies to the folks at Evan Williams, but your white label product has led me to believe that bourbon does, indeed, have an arsehole.

Track 14: DJ Mashup – “NWA Floats On
I know the quality of this cut is a bit lacking, but I hope you can groove to it regardless.

By my estimation, since becoming a father I stay sick approximately 50% of the time. Now, I've never had what you'd call a robust immune system, but that shit is impressive no matter how you cut it!

Still, I reckon y'all don't generally notice my congestion; the accent tends to camouflage that shit pretty well.

I hope this podcast finds you all well and enjoying temperate weather. Holler at yer boy and lemme know what you thought.

Nicely done, Z. I like the reversed playlist idea. I'm also going to add that Simple Piano version to my collection of Who remixes.

Nerdier sport than Ping-Pong? Muggle Quidditch.

Oh, don't worry about the congestion. You still sound funny ;-)

Z. said...

In all fairness, though, sounding funny is pretty much effortless for me. ;)

Yet one more thing to get me through the work day. Thanks, Z.

Z. said...

Glad you got some miles out of the 'cast, Pink! Now we just gotta get you in on one as a special guest!

Mr. Trewe said...

I'd personaly love to see an interview of pinky for his perspective of aussie nerdcore. Heck, I'd love to see more interviews, period. They are always awesome.

Z. said...

Thanks, man. Me and Pink been kicking around the guest-host idea for a while. We're just scared our combined accents might kill the listeners. ;)
