And the song selection? Phenomenal! At least from where I'm sitting.
I think you're in for a treat, listening audience. A genuine treat.

Intro: Baddd Spellah – "Radio Free Hipster Theme (feat. Beefy)"
Contrary to popular belief, I receive props far less often than nonstop.
Track 1: Supercommuter - "10th Generation (Klopfenpop Mix)"
I love me some Klopfenpop. I also love me some Supercommuter.
Z's 1st interlude: "But I am back… in the proverbial house."
Which is likely where my proverbial ass belongs.
Track 2: Kirby Krackle - "Tony Stark (Live)"
Buy this EP and help a koala. No, I haven't' recently suffered a stroke or anything; this really is a fundraiser for a koala sanctuary.
Track 3: seal of quality - "Thor"
Okay, maybe not exactly about the Avenger of the same name, but a great track nonetheless.
Track 4: Adam WarRock - "Spider-Woman"
Adam makes mad mixtapes. This one, for example, was dedicated to the West Coast Avengers.
Track 5: Americans UK - "[Inappropriate] Word[s] To Your Mother"
I really dig Jef UK's vocals on this one. I dig 'em hard.
Track 6: Danny Dementor - "Fight to the End (Pre-Adolescent Mix)"
I would go so far as to say Danny Dementor made some of the greatest Wizard Rock of the scene's latter era.
Track 7: The Factory Kids - "The City (killsaly remix)"
Much like Klopfenpop, killsaly is one of those cats I truly believe can remix anything.
Track 8: Mega Ran - "Metal Dance (feat. The Megas) (Acoustic Mix)"
Upon much reflection, I actually think I prefer this to the original "electric" version.
Z's 2nd interlude: "Props to Church for turning me on to that one."
And since I know you're gonna ask, here's a link to that King of Thrones theme song cover.
Track 9: Marc with a C - "Motherfuckers Be Bullshittin'"
Though Marc sings the titular phrase with a bit less conviction than I would've hoped, the building repetitive vocal coda at the track's conclusion is true pop genius.
Track 10: Aperture Science Psychoacoustics Laboratory - "Turret Wife Serenade"
I can't imagine anyone missed this, but if so: linky.
Track 11: Insane Ian - "Super-Powers"
Again, not my favorite work from Ian on the verses, but the chorus more than makes up for it.
Track 12: The Amazing BrandO - "ZELDA 3 [Episode2]: Hyrule Castle"
BrandO really channels Link's borderline psychopathy in this one.
Track 13: Parks and Recreation dialog / Dethonator - "Rock of the Dress"
I really didn't understand how big My Little Pony fandom had gotten until folks started requesting remixes from the show's soundtrack.
Z's final interlude: "From the cartoon series My Little Pony: Friendship is Magical."
Okay, the actual subtitle is Friendship is Magic. I'm pretty sure that one mistake alienated all my bronie listeners.
Track 14: Robin Skouteris - "One Hell or Another [Avril Lavigne vs. Katy Perry vs. Blondie vs. A-ha vs. Toni Basil vs. The Knack vs. Offspring vs. Ting Tings]"
This track is a bit long, but I felt it made a perfect closer for this episode.
In addition to my regularly scheduled episodes, next month I will also be preparing my Parsec Awards nomination sampler. I will, in keeping with tradition, share it with y'all. The only question is when.
A lot of that depends on how I choose to do things during July, as that is Nerdapalooza month. If I can still swing two shows then that mini-sode will simply be an added bonus. If that proves too problematic it may instead have to replace a regular episode.
Still, I have to submit the thing to the judging panel by June 15th, so if anyone has some sort of compulsive need to hear it early, just give me a yell and I'll link you straight to it.
