Radio Free Hipster Ep. 141: Uncle Zack's 24-Hour Drive-Through Apocalypse

On a purely artistic level, this is personal favorite podcast of mine. The song selections are superb, and I think there's a cool flow to the sets themselves.

For me personally? It's been a huge pain in the ass. Mic trouble led me to record my bits via iPhone, and with my nice headphones on the fritz mixing it was a bear. And now for some reason the bitrate/file size is coming out all funky. Ugh!

Still, I just hope you enjoy it despite its technical weirdness.

Show Notes:

Intro: Baddd Spellah – "Radio Free Hipster Theme (feat. Beefy)"
It's still the best damn theme I got!

Track 1: xaeroseven – Gravity Falls dialog / "Call Me Gangnam"
Yeah, totally unrelated Grunkle Stan clip there. Just because.

Z's 1st interlude: "Lo for I am the prophet."
Don’t exactly know what this is about either. Perhaps I am simply ackin' cray-cray.

Track 2: Polaris – "Waiting for October"
Just to be clear, I meant that my current mindset involves waiting for October. Not, y'know, that I'm presently obsessed with doomsday prophecies or anything.

Track 3: MC Frontalot – "Don't Wear Those Shoes"
Man, I lose and rediscover that Weird Al tribute with stunning regularity.

Track 4: Mike Phirman – "Indie"
Finally getting into Phirm's solo work. And with good reason.

Track 5: Wax Tailor – "Magic Numbers (feat. A.S.M. & Mattic)"
This one's for my brother, Larry. There's a Newhart joke in there somewhere, I just know it!

Track 6: Death*Star – "Your Mom"
Guys, I am so sorry for this. I mean, this track is foul, but I love it so fuckin' hard.

Track 7: Gravity Falls dialog / A plus D – "Close to Konichiwa Bitches"
This really seemed like the only song that could possibly follow that Death*Star track up.

Z's 2nd interlude: "Three quarters of Connecticut alterna-rockers Miracle Legion."
For the record: Pete and Pete was the best goddamn show ever.

Track 8: Soul Coughing – "Circles"
Another nice slice of 90s nerdery.

Track 9: Skyway Flyer – "In Circles"
Because circles!

Track 10: The OneUps – "Two Dragons, One Cup… of Funk"
Got a review of this whole release incoming. Short version: I heartily recommend it.

Track 11: Jesse Dangerously – "Aww Shucks"
Saw Jesse do this live in Charlotte. It reminded me how much I dig the number.

Z's final interlude: "The illusive Reba McEntire sex tape."
Yeah, I just included this to see how much country perv traffic it generates.

Track 12: MisCast – "Drive"
Pick up this one and "Name Is (Live)" right now over at Bandcamp. And thanks to Jay for the sweet hook-up!

So I'm going on vacation in late October. This means that I'll be recording both my annual Halloween Crap-tacular episodes back-to-back, and releasing them closer together than usual.

Assuming my podcasting rig holds up, of course. Curse you, fickle technology!

I suppose I'm proud of the fact that we wrote one of the year's most upsetting nerdcore songs. Well, really, we wrote two; "I Put My Penis in Your Cousin" is pretty upsetting, too. I should note, btw, that while it shares roots with "Your Mom" in that they're both songs by us, the latter track wasn't a riff on "Your Mom"; it started out as a joke song I'd sing to Bill Beats while C0splay was recording in the studio, and he made us record it and put it on the album as a hidden track.

I hate how much I love it, 3-P!

Man, this is a great show. It's been a while since a podcast had me opening my wallet this wide.

Yes! Another satisfied customer. Glad you dug it, Dave.
