Radio Free Hipster Ep. 133: The Jurassic Spark Mixtape

Apparently you guys really dig dinosaurs. I mean, when I floated the idea of this mixtape 'cast on Twitter the response was immediate.

But that's cool. 'Cause I like 'em too.

In fact I've recently noticed that a lot of my favorite tracks are about the great thunder lizards. Which likely explains why a number of these cuts are repeats.

Show Notes:

Intro: Baddd Spellah – "Radio Free Hipster Theme (feat. Beefy)"
Beware the Beefasaurus.

Track 1: Scared Of Dinosaurs - "We Are Scared Of Dinosaurs (Intro)"
From the old Superpowerless side project of the same name.

Track 2: DrumUltimA - "JESUS CHRIST IT'S A DINOSAUR GET IN THE EPOCH" / Jurassic Park dialog
This percussion-heavy Chrono Trigger OC ReMix is exquisite!

Track 3: Tribe One - "Devil Rhymeosaur"
This is a great track to listening to at any time, excepting on your way to a job interview.

Track 4: Go Home Productions - "2000 Light Years from Bolan"
How could I not have a T.Rex mash-up in this one?

Track 5: Former Fat Boys - "SPACEDINOSAUR" / DR. SMOOV - "SOS Wheeljack"
Yes, I've used that "SOS Wheeljack" bit before. No, I'm not ashamed of it.

Track 6: Jurassic Park: Legacy - "Derezzed Daft Punk MUSIC Mash Up"
I just randomly ran across this on YouTube, and was struck by how well it fit the show.

Track 7: Math the Band - "Dinosaurs Were Made Up By the CIA to Discourage Time Travel"
Probably one of the greatest Math titles ever.

Track 8: Illbotz - "Dinosaur, Dinosaur"
This here is one of my go-to jams.

Track 9: Monster Magnet - "Dinosaur Vacume" / More Jurassic Park dialog
There're a lotta Jurassic Park clips in this thing!

Track 10: BC - "Raptor Song"
This song was likely the impetus of this particular mix.

Track 11: HORSE the Band - "Sex Raptor" / Still more Jurassic Park dialog
Okay, that title is just fucking terrifying.

Track 12: The Doubleclicks - "Hollywood Raptor"
A pretty recent repeat, but y'all know I have a real affinity for The Doubleclicks.

Track 13: The Late Cretaceous - "Carnivores & Herbivores Can Get Along" / The Land Before Time dialog
From their Demosaurus EP. The recording quality is kinda bad, but I dig this song so much.

Between the Parsec Awards nomination special and a dinosaur mixtape, it almost seems like I cheated you fine folks. It feels like I didn't actually do a proper podcast all month, and I am wracked with guilt.

Forgive me, internet, and I promise to make June's podcasts even more awesome. Okay?

I mean, we're still cool, right?
