Radio Free Hipster Ep. 108: Freebootery and Folderol

In my many decades of producing this fine show, it has always amazed me how the creation of some episodes can be more difficult than pulling teeth, whilst others seem to come together almost of their own accord.

This week’s joint is a prime example of the latter, as I, frankly embarrassed by the general seaminess of episode 107, have decided to work clean for once. Having come to that decision, everything lined up for me with a shiny, well-lighted quickness, resulting in the hermetically sealed hour you are about to hear. I know it’s a departure from what you are used to from yours truly, but please give it a chance and I assure you an almost savage level of bliss.

Show Notes:

Intro: Baddd Spellah – "Radio Free Hipster Theme (feat. Beefy)"
Far messier than the rest of the show, but who am I to fu…break with tradition. 

Track 1: Klopfenpop – "The Pirates Who Don’t Do Anything"
Klopf’s epic remix medley of the entire soundtrack of this Veggie Tales classic really sets the tone for the whole show.

Z's 1st interlude: "Austerity."
Wherein I reveal my new direction to the masses.

Track 2: Citizen Wang "Wide Noise"
I'm looking askance at the band name here, but letting it slide if only because I’d never have thought dueling white noise machines could be so compelling.

Track 3: Shael Riley and the Double Ice Backfire – "Open Up Your Heart (And Let the Sunshine In)"
Apparently I'm not the only one working clean these days.

Z's 2nd interlude: "Chastity."
Because sex is immoral. Also unsanitary.

Track 4: DJ Roast Beast – "What a Fool Believes/LoveFool Mash-Up"
Michael McDonald AND The Cardigans? Yes, Please!

Z's 3rd interlude: "Sobriety."
Boozers are losers. You heard it here first. 

Track 5: Billy the Fridge – "Alphabet Song"
Billy is famed for his love of gentleman's clubs and fried food, but he also drops rhymes for the children. 

Track 6: mc chris – "Lullabye"
From his new kids' album Marshmellow Playground. Which is totally a thing.

Z's 4th interlude: "Continence."
Have I mentioned my new interest in propriety and self-restraint?

Track 7: YTCracker – "White Lines (Don't Do It)"
I think it's admirable how YT takes a stand against drug use.

Track 7.5 Utter Bullwhip - "BattBonery"
A brand new chiptunes collective combines the Pixies "Bone Machine" and Metallica's "Battery" into unbelievable new whole.

Track 8: Rebecca Black – "Friday"
Apparently, everybody’s lookin’ forward to the weekend, weekend.

Z's final interlude: "Asceticism."
I love it when a plan comes together. Or I would if I wasn’t so very stoic.

Track 9: CheekyBoy – "Revolution of the Heart"
The intro and outtro from Pink Floyd’s Pulse seamlessly remixed with this muzak Beatles classic is perfect psychic cooldown, truly a sigh in music. Actually, I may close every show with this from now on.

And that, my friends, will be more than sufficient for this 1st week of April. Peace, Out, Sentients!

YTC covering Grandmaster Flash? How did I miss that? I'm gonna hit this up now instead of waiting for home!

There is trickery afoot on the internets! My heart is only stilled because it sits next to the Battlestar Galactica dog tag on my chest.

DV said...

Great podswap. Bonebat is fun.

DV said...

Also LOL at the show description. Your attention to detail never disappoints.

Maneius said...

I feel so betrayed. I am never going to trust again.

Z. said...

You know I hate pranking you, funk. Almost as much as I LOVE pranking you. ;)

Lemme tell ya, Data, nothing deflates the ol' ego like having Steve lampoon your writing style.

You're damaged goods now, Maneius, and it's all my fault.

Shannon said...

I was at first scared, then alarmed. And gullible. Mostly gullible.

Nice work!

Z. said...

LOL Yeah, Shannon - new listeners get it the worst. ;)

Thanks again Z, for your most gracious hostings!

Z. said...

Happy to do it, Steve!

TV's Jacob said...

See, I'm kind of hacked off at being robbed of my VeggieTales remix. Oh April 1, you are a cruel bitch.

Z. said...

That one was all Bonehand, Jacob. Even I couldn't have come up with an idea that fucked up. :)

Dave of the Purple Hat said...

Was I the only one who had serious trouble listening to this file because every time I paused, FFd or RWd it went all kerplooey? I don't know how mp3 encoding works but this one was completely FUBAR.

After several tries, I managed to get through it, but honestly I could very well have missed big chunks of it because every time I touched a button it seemed to take me to a random point in the cast.

And before you say "then why did you touch any buttons?", I listen at work and have no choice but to pause occasionally.

So, I *think* it was a good show...

Z. said...

Haven't heard of anyone else having problems, Dave, but I'll check the source file for funkiness. Thanks for the heads-up!
