Lettuce Vibrations, 1 and 2

Put your special listening glasses on, because we have an extraordinary double episode of FreeDarko Presents the Disciples of Clyde podcast! In the first half, Dan is joined by ThinkProgress blogger and Friend of FD Matthew Yglesias. The fellas talk economics, politics, and basketball. Donald Sterling, Rush Limbaugh, and state tax rates all get mentioned. Shoals is also in on the conversation, until his Skype connection dies.

In the second half, Shoals makes a triumphant return to talk about his new obsession Brandon Jennings and the proper time it takes to evaluate players and teams, as well as some preferences about NBA broadcasting.

It all adds up to a solid hour and 25 minutes, and if you want to skip ahead to the Brandon Jennings part, Part 2 starts around the 44 minute mark.

Songs from the episode:

"Rainy Dayz" - Re-up Gang
"New Frontier" - Antipop Consortium
"Taxman Dub" - Israel Vibration
"Getting Smart" - Schema
"The Youth" - MGMT
"If Everything Fell Quiet" - The Reindeer Section
"Ring Ring (Ha Ha Hey)" - De La Soul

The Raptors are paid in American dollars. This was covered a bit in the Toronto press when they started signing all these Europeans and the USD was so weak relative to the Euro.

Currency fluctuations are a huge deal for NHL teams, and a big part of why Winnipeg and Quebec City moved to the States.

Wanted to drop off two great quotes from the LAL-MEM game.

1. “We don’t really know the identity of the team right now,” Artest said. “We’re driving without a license—no identity. We’re like ‘The Bourne Ultimatum.”’

2. “You think back on all the years I’ve been here, all the mentors I’ve had,” Bryant said. “I’ve learned everything from other guys that have been here. There’s nothing original in my game.”

Politics and basketball, together at last, despite whatever MJ's megalomania thinks about it. Real conservatives are not only few and far between these days, they're especially rare around these parts. Bigs ups for euro-ism, Yglesias' transit-harping, and letting all Republicans everywhere know that until Glenn Beck is gone, gone, gone, he's theirs and they have to answer for him.
