It’s too warm in here to type up proper shownotes. The highlights:
- Podcass these days
I went to an Independence Day barbecue. It was fun. Also, maybe I should start drinking more?
Make a pledge to our Trip to Canadia Fund and get a postcard from Canadia!
We finished out the show by interviewing Will Loomis of the band Loomis & The Lust. Will recently filed a lawsuit against British pop star Jessie J. Will believes Jessie’s hit song “Domino” is a ripoff of his song “Bright Red Chords.” We discussed the lawsuit as well as the band’s new album and its new lineup. Then we played the title track from that album, “Sports Suck:”
Another unlive presentation. The live ones will be back soon. Maybe. We responded to some feedback (thanks, David and yarnspinner!). We talked about how I filled in for a sick Colin on the most recent Halfway Around The World episode. We announced our first contest! We read an article about how the band Smashing Pumpkins’ new bassist is (allegedly) one of the girls on the band’s album from 1993. We discussed a story sent in by Nathan about a teacher who was fired because of her blog. We played some audio from the news reporter who had an on-air “malfunction” and gave our own thoughts. Then it was time for obligatory Bieber news. That was followed up with a song by JacksonsWarehouse. Then we read another story submitted by Nathan about a real Gemini dragon! We finished things up with an announcement of the 10-haiku-per-day project beginning next month.
