In the middle of the discussion, Tim dies, so we tweet that. But it turns out this his death was just a bad Skype connection.
After that, Jim’s Musical Moment to Die For is “Ceremony” by New Order, which naturally leads into a discussion over the concept of Fair Use, and how that concept is useless if you don’t have the money to defend yourself in court. Which sucked for entrepreneur Andy Baio, who was sued for a pixel art version of the cover of Miles Davis’ Kind of Blue album.
In a brand-new segment — entitled “You’re An Idiot!” — Jim and Tim take Kirk to school for his ongoing hatred of one of their favorite bands, The Smiths. As always, is comes down to one word: Morrissey.
And finally, Jim shares what’s in his mix: the latest from Fucked Up, TV on the Radio and Fleet Foxes. Also, Tim dies yet again!
One More Thing
— Tim is not impressed by Santa Ynez wineries.
— Kirk is not impressed by Coco Crisp shaving his head.
— Jim is impressed by New York’s legalization of Gay Marriage.
Medialoper Bebop Episode 9: Kirk’s New Aloha Spirt was recorded at 3:00PM PDT on June 27, 2011 via Call Graph over Skype. It was edited in Audacity.
The opening and closing music of Medialoper Bebop is “Big Hand on the Seven” by our close personal friends, The Miss Alans, whom Kirk managed in the days when they were very influenced by The Smiths.
