Radio Free Hipster Ep. 139: Kneesles

Full disclosure: The title of this episode comes from a very old, very bad joke. I just wanted to get that out of the way up front.

This show is a weird blend of brand new material and older cuts I felt like revisiting. The most obvious example of the latter is the YTCracker track, which I sort of have to include because of the relevant Sheriff Blubs sample.

Show Notes:

Intro: Baddd Spellah – "Radio Free Hipster Theme (feat. Beefy)"
It's a song about me. And you can't take that away.

Track 1: Supercommuter – "I Like It! (ft. MC Frontalot, Beefy) [DMG remix]"
"I like it cybernetic, I like it engineered / I like it at the party when everybody's weird."

Z's first interlude: "This little slice of plagiarism."
I dunno, I mean I did cite Beefy.

Track 2: Kirby Krackle – "Booty Do Math (feat. Adam WarRock) [Live]"
Such an amazing performance of this joint!

Track 3: Sean NH – "Betiking Poputok (Rarity vs. Ke$ha)"
Feels like I've been neglecting the brony listeners lately, so here's a mash-up.

Track 4: MC Lars – "Annabel Lee R.I.P"
Extra points for Tegan and Sara.

Track 5: Flip-Flop – "Sanctuary"
This Micro Techno collection is pretty damn tight. You should check it out.

Track 6: Shinobi Ninja – "Ill Ish"
That sample is from Don't Be a Menace, right?

Z's 2nd interlude: "A delightful combination of space travel, illicit drug use and Gravity Falls dialog."
That about covers it.

Track 7: Lenich – "Opening Theme (8 bit)" / Gravity Falls dialog
This cover made the rounds a week or two ago, but on the off chance you missed it here it is.

Track 8: YTCracker – "Take a Knee" / Gravity Falls dialog
As heard on episode 102.

Track 9: Spamtec and Hairetsu – "Isaac Kneeton"
Isaac Kneeton is my new go-to username.

Track 10: Kool Keith – "Livin' Astro"
I thought I'd played this one on the show before too. Turns out not so much.

Track 11: Andrew Allen – "Star Trek: The Next Generation"
Much respect to the SalesGeek for pointing me toward this album! Somehow I missed the original project pitch.

Z's final interlude: "That periodical of our collective childhood."
Okay, that's kind of a lie. I didn't actually subscribe to NP until I was in my 30s.

Track 12: Mega Ran – "Nintendo Power"
A nice new freebie from Random. I'm sad to see the mag go, but such is the way of the world.

I reckon as this episode posts most of y'all are either en route to or maybe even already at PAX or Dragon Con. Whichever you're attending, please wander around the show floor listening to this podcast – even if it's just for a minute.

That way it'll sort of be like I'm there too!

Any excuse to play Kool Keith is a good one.

Good podcast! And congrats on the Parsec! Here's your victory poem (I call it 'too long for a tweet, too short for an email, just right for a comment'):

There is a great man whom we call 'Zed';
A wealth of nerd-knowledge in his head.
Won multiple awards
Plays the best nerd records
"You command the respect", as Front said.

Too right, Marc. Never a bad time for KK.

And thanks, Jimi. Now I feel properly honored. ;)
