THREE FOR ONE: Shownotes for Expect The Unexpected episodes 081-083

Due to a computer issue, I've been without a laptop for the past two weeks, but I'm back and ready to go.  As a result, the planned single request show spanned into two and change, and the third episode is mainly a result of not knowing what the hell to do at all and just throwing something together in ten minutes.  (I didn't even put "Let's Kick Ass" into the playlist until over halfway through the broadcast when I did some math and figured out I had four or five minutes left.)  I managed to stumble into a decent playlist, however, so balls to Picasso.

Here are the three latest episodes of Expect The Unexpected.  Next week is...something special.  Enjoy!

EXPECT THE UNEXPECTED - Episode 079: Of COURSE Future Sucks, We Live In A Dystopia!

This was a weird episode in every way, shape and form.  There's a 10 minute block of pure 80's at the beginning (most of which is a tribute to the recently departed Bill Paxton), then I did a bunch of music reviews, then I played some of the songs and they were music I never saw myself playing on the show, then I had a bunch of extra time left over due to poor planning and threw a random song on.

For the bulk of the show, I tried something new: taking my most recent music review blog and trying to recreate it as a podcast.  I think the segments turned out well (feedback is welcome), and playing select songs from albums I reviewed was a nice twist.  I NEVER dreamed I'd be playing multiple country songs in a single episode, not even a request show.  And it was NEW country too.  And I never suspected I'd like it.  I even played new John Mayer.  I'm tellin' ya, this a was weird one.

This was also the second episode in a row I had to completely re-record after I got…
