Medialoper Bebop Episode 34: Welcomed to the Jungle

Jim is finally back from Maui, and so we’re finally back with a podcast!

This week, we wonder if Axl Rose is right to refuse entry into a Hall of Fame that would induct someone like Axl Rose. (07:51 – 19:13)

Then, in 2012, should anybody be watching shows like Mad Men or Breaking Bad in anything but HD? Of course not, so we discuss the fact that DirecTV customers still have to suffer with AMC in Standard Definition. This also leads into a discussion on David Simon’s comments about people not watching The Wire properly. (19:14 – 29:55)

Then, we follow up on the DOJ’s eBooks anti-trust lawsuit. (29:56 – 37:46)

Finally, what’s in Jim’s mix: the latest records from Wussy, The Men, Nada Surf and Imperial Teen. (37:47 – 43:16)
