This week, Kirk, Tim and Jim are reeling from the ramifications of the reversion back to Pacific Standard Time, so there are fewer topics, but more digressions!
First, a look at Amazon’s Kindle Owners Lending Library, and what it might mean for the Publishing industry, and you, the Consumer. Yes, you!! (07:20 – 21:00)
A voicemail from Commissioner Loper leads to a plot to capture Jay Fung, who still doesn’t know that he’s been mentioned on nearly every single podcast for the past couple of months. (21:02 – 23:00)
Then, a Musical Moment to Die For: The Dream Syndicate – Then She Remembers. (23:02 – 25:02)
Finally, Jim reveals his amazingly simple 21st Century plan to fix the problem of Daylight Saving Time, something that has been publicly affecting our lives since at least 1983. (25:03 – 33:32)
Here’s what’s in Jim’s mix this week: John Doe, Deer Tick and some rare Smiths. (33:33 – 37:54)
All that, and commentary from our special guest, Siri!!
One More Thing
- Tim – Evernote (37:55 – 39:30)

Medialoper Bebop Episode 22: Time Change was recorded on Tuesday, November 8, 2011 at 9:00 PST via Audio Hijack over iChat. It was edited by Jim in Audacity. The opening and closing theme is “Big Hand on the Seven” by our close personal friends, The Miss Alans, who don’t even know that we plan on kidnapping half of their band in order to keep Commissioner Loper from replacing us with them.
No virtual assistants were harmed in the making of this podcast.
