Episode 105: The Scope Catch ‘Em Up, Karaoke Phobias, and Peter, Bjorn, & Jjorn

After a lengthy hiatus, your Scope crew triumphantly returns with a ton to discuss.

What to know how the Oscar picks from ep. 104 panned out. Consider it covered!
Has Jared ever gotten toasty on a science fiction/fantasy convention bus? You’ll find out this episode!
Has Adam ever been pelted by toilet paper via a modded leaf blower? He’ll spill the beans!
And finally, has Shane mastered the art of diet soda syrup-swapping? You’ll have to listen to find out!

Your Scope crew also reviews the debut album from Beady Eye, the remnants of the band, Oasis. Al, we apologize for not including you. Feel free to voice your displeasure via the voicemail.

And finally, in a “it’s probably way too late to mention but we’re still going to anyway” moment, Crap From The Past’s Ron Gerber loved our “Hit The Post” game and decided to play it with some of his professional DJ friends last summer. Please be awesome and take a listen. It’s quite spectacular.

PS – Here’s Adam looking his finest. Please to enjoy.

The Scope episode 105 doesn’t really want to know how your garden grows.

    If you wanna see “Con Shirley” again, I believe Sybil still works at the Lagoon Theater.

    Hey guys,

    Enjoyed your MarsCon review. I wanted to explain to Shane, on Friday night when I was addressing the crowd, I was on edge because I felt I owed everyone in the room an explanation as to why we hadn’t started yet. So I wasn’t scolding the crowd, I was scolding myself, so to speak. I do my best to keep the trains running on time during my comedy music concert blocks so the MarsCon staff will stay happy with me/us. Fortunately, some excellent MarsCon patrons got us the batteries we needed for the back-up recording device and we started only a few minutes later than scheduled.

    Aside from a hiccup on Saturday afternoon when Devo Spice discovered that Southwest Airlines damaged his performance video rig, the Dementia Track went the smoothest it has ever gone. I’m psyched for 2012 already, and we may have next year’s music GoH announced by the time Episode 106 records. It was great talking fashion with you in the Green Lantern room (re: my new shirts), and yes, Possible Oscar rocked the place as they always do.

    Keep Scopin’ on ’til the break of dawn,

    Luke Ski

    huh. speaking to Jared – i’ve always thought it was a LOT easier to do comedy songs. especially parody songs – the framework is there, you just need to throw in a nerdy reference, open a rhyming dictionary and bam, good to go. with original pop stuff, you don’t have a starting point or any sort of framework to start from, so theres a lot more front-end work getting the thing going.

    and speaking to Shane – we cull tracks. if the new thosquanta album ever gets released, i already have enough material for 2 albums, and i’ll just cut the stuff i don’t think fits. i end up writing a lot more songs than i release (which may be sad considering what i’ve actually released). i write at least 2 albums worth of material per year, but don’t release anywhere near it.

    anyways, i am enjoying fringe.
    thanks!

    I finally listened to episode 102. and the comments are turned off. why do you hate me?
    And I agree with Adam. LCD Soundsystems album was very good. Made it on my top albums list of the year.
