This episode harkens back to the older days of MPAD when it was just me talking about stuff I've been checking out while playing some music that I want to expose others too. The music I'm playing is from 6 local Detroit area bands that all have their music available for free on bandcamp. I'm also talking at length about San Diego Comic Con news and coverage by G4 and other sources. Keep your pen handy or be ready to take some notes because I cover a bunch different movies, TV shows and more that you may want to look into later.

Last week without much notice Das Racist played at the Crofoot. They were originally set up to play Eagle Theater, but ended up at the smaller Pike Room. I have both Das Racist mixtapes and I think they are pretty good at what they do - funny yet still hip indie rappers. On stage they are not the relaxed rappers you hear on the tapes, they are rowdy and loud and maybe their ploy at not being "talented" actually has some truth to it. I digress though because Das Rascist wasn't really who I came to see. Warming up the show were local favorites Mobil and Danny Brown, who both know how to work the crowd and throw together some heady raps.Charles Trees provided the beats for the night and he is definitely a DJ worth looking into.
The video is some conversation I took with Mobil before the show. You can hear his work at his soundcloud site.

Mashup culture and podcasting sprang from the internet around the same time, and mashups as far as Most People Are DJs is concerned are part of the ingredients for a good music podcast. I've feature mashups on my show on and off for the past 6 years and I have to say many of the mashups I've played I actually enjoy more than the originating tracks. To celebrate mashup this episode I have two interviews from mashup's most respected arists, Stv Slv of the Hood Internet and DJ BC. While the Hood Internet focus on fusing indie pop with the lastest hip hop, DJ BC takes more of a timeless approach. The other mashup track is from the new Wugazi project from Doomtree. Please note all this music is available for free.

This week’s video was also filmed during the Lenka show on June 16 at the Pike Room. Katie and I decided to see if the warm up act Elizabeth and the Catapult would spend a few minutes with us discussing their recent release "The Other Side of Zero." Included are live clips of their performance that evening which was positively entertaining. The set included not only Elizabeth singing but her guitarist sang several parts. They even joined together in an acapella song that was a definite crowd pleaser. As with the Lenka show Katie J Rod took some great photos of and the band.

So many different topics for this episode that just spending a few words on them is going to make this a long blog. I start the show talking with fellow podcaster, Scott Carelli of Geekshow Entertainment, who has a number of great podcasts going on there on all the geeky subjects I am into. Then, I talk to Ryan Brown of the hilarious and excellent "God Hates Astronauts" webcomic, which is is so damn funny I really do laugh out loud while reading it. After that it's another superhero movie review segment with my buddy Ted as we discuss Green Lantern and let you know how it stands the summer superhero movies we've seen so far. And, for a little surprise movie review, Christopher George from Spoiler Free Movie Sleuth give the lowdown on Transformers III - Dark Side of the Moon.
