The Feens use their mad audio skills to do a really upbeat and fun episode, making fun of, and rejecting, tyranny in all its forms. Topics include Syria, the three questions you should ask any politician, “Long Black Veil” done by Baby Opaque and Ian MacKaye, how Neema Vedadi is looking like Kim Thayil from Soundgarden if Soundgarden were an AnCap radio show instead of a rock band, Big Science, Libertarian Paternalism IS an oxymoron, and of course, Obama’s new 27 year old “nudge czar” Maya Shankar.

    I love how you guys break down and analyze tv shows sometimes. Could Neema do a segment on “The Newsroom” sometime? It would be great to hear his perspective on the show’s “smug” attitude toward the media’s role of keeping the people in a democracy “informed”.

      Thanks!

      I don’t think Neema’s had time to watch “The Newsroom” yet. I’m loving it, by the way. ‘

        Hmm well I guess you can fill him in and he can comment or something. I just love hearing you guys deconstruct “shows that are dramatic about the wrong thing”, like how the Newsroom has this idea of reporters guarding democracy by fighting the corporations or something.

    Yep, Idaho has building codes now, back when I lived there my landlord was constantly bellyaching about various building codes. Didn’t help that he was a bit of a mad scientist and a poor carpenter. Too bad, if his ideas had been better executed perhaps fewer people would have complained.

    Also glad to hear that you have acknowledged your abrasive personality. A friend of mine considers some of things you have boasted about to be downright immature. Especially your announcement that you will stop being a filmmaker due to some minor technical annoyances.

    Then again this guy is ex military, he is pretty well used to absurd technical requirements. Someday I simply have to tell you the story about how he wound up fixing radios in Vietnam. If his story wasn’t so full of detail and so utterly nonsensical I would have said he was full of it.

      I don’t consider that to be an example of my “abrasive personality”, and it does not make me immature. It’s a personal choice. Tell your friend that would be like telling someone they have an abrasive personality and are immature because they’d rather fix radios than computers.

      My decision to do spoken audio rather than video is not “minor technical annoyances.” It’s large differences in the amount of man-hours it takes to produce an hour of quality media. With audio, it’s about a 2 to 1 ratio. With video, when done what I consider correctly, it’s at least 200 to 1.

      Me not being interested in film anymore has nothing to do with being abrasive or immature. Abrasive and immature is when I (or others) foist their angry personal opinions about individuals on those individuals. I’m foisting an opinion about filmmaking, not about individual filmmakers (other than myself). There’s a rather large difference.
