Medialoper Bebop Episode 2: Buried in a Sea of Coverage

Michael ScottWelcome, once again, to the Medialoper Bebop podcast. This, right here, is Episode 2: Buried in a Sea of Coverage.

As always, your hosts are Jim Connelly, Tim Gaskill & Kirk Biglione, holding forth on a wide variety of topics.

There are 8 million podcasts on the naked internet, and we can guarantee you that no other podcast this week will focus on both Osama Bin Laden and Coco Crisp. Which is weird, because when we originally conceived the podcast over the weekend, we weren’t going to focus on either one.

But then, head-related things happened to each man, and we were compelled to discuss them.

For those of you keeping score at home, here is today’s starting lineup:


Five Awesome Things – August 2, 2010

OK, gonna try something here: a quick weekly list of five awesome things going on in the media, technology, pop culture, politics, sports, whatever happens to strike my fancy.

No real rules on this, except that whatever I put here has to be current, and it has to be something that I’m really liking right this second.



Why ABC Should Broadcast the LOST Finale “Live” on the West Coast

Dear ABC,

At this point, I don’t need to tell you that we’re barreling down towards the final hours of LOST. Are you sad, ABC? Because I sure am. I’ve watched all of the episodes since the beginning, both from the original broadcasts and on DVD. I’ve spent countless hours thinking, discussing, and arguing about your show.

(Gods know that I’ve written loads and loads of blog posts about it: so many that some guy recently unsubscribed from our mailing list, giving the reason of “too much LOST.” Ha! As if!)

And it’s all going to be over in less than two weeks.

What are you going to do, ABC, when LOST is over and all you have is Flash Forward and V.

I can tell you what I’m going to do: not watch those shows. Sorry, ABC, that’s just the way it is. On the other hand, I might reconsider if you do a small favor for me and the rest of the West Coast LOST fans: broadcast the finale “live” on the West Coast. 6:00pm PDT on Sunday, May 23, 2010. Can you do that for us, ABC? Can you? Because it would be the best thing ever!


The Key To Season 6 of LOST, Part 4

Previously, on The Key to Season 6 of LOST

I had a theory, which was mine, and it was all about the relationship of what the show was calling the “sideways” timeline to the “real” timeline. I hadn’t posted in quite a few weeks, because I wanted to see how my theory played out before I declared victory or defeat.

I am now ready to do so, but first, let’s restate my original theory:

WARNING: LOST SEASON 6 SPOILERS TO FOLLOW! Click away unless you’re caught up.


The Key To Season 6 of LOST, Part 3

After a couple of mythology-heavy episodes, I thought I would check back in and take a look if there was any movement on my LOST theory.

As you’ve no doubt noticed, things are moving pretty slowly in that regard. You might have noticed people (many of whom waited patiently for the reveal of BSG’s Final Cylon) are whinging about it, even though we have hours and hours to go. Chill out, already, cos you’re missing all of the other cool shit that’s happening!

Because things are moving, and so far nothing contradicts my original theory, and in fact, I’ll even go so far as to say that this week’s Jack-centric ep actually supports it.
