“The Lazy/Dangerous Show”

- The Daily Show explains Dick Cheney
- arson at the radical bookstore
- get well soon, Steve Gilliard
- imprisoned Egyptian blogger
- the enemy of my enemy is my friend. And my enemy
- Costa Ricans protest CAFTA
- anonymity, Cheney style
- terrorism is cause of terrorism
- boycotting the RIAA
- corpse updates
- hypocrites, but not liars
- confusing North Korea story

Due to a busy, harrowing week, I decided put an idea into action that I’ve had for months: robo-DJing. Instead of sampling dozens of new tunes for potential rotation and playing live selecter from my vast music armada, I’d just set the mp3 player to “random” and let the CPU do the choosing. On the one hand, this would probably lead to a wider variety of songs that you’d usually hear on the show. On the other, there was a much higher chance of getting songs that were radio unfriendly, or just plain crappy. There was also the final danger: what if the random show was better than my usual shows? That would have been a crushing ego blow.

I think this show turned out decent, but I don’t think this is an experiment I’ll try again.

  1. Great show, don’t beat yourself up so much. I really liked the music, even some that got a bit weird and long.
