Co-Main Event Podcast Episode 68 (9/10/13)

New logo 42Just because there is no major MMA show this week doesn’t mean the Co-Main Event Podcast won’t have more than enough fight-related BS to BS about during episode 68. For starters, Ben and Chad chop it up over Georges St. Pierre and Johny Hendricks bickering about who exactly is (or is not) going to conduct the independent drug testing for their UFC 167 fight and who is (or is not) going to pay for it. In addition, there’s this new season of The Ultimate Fighter. which debuted to slumping ratings amid a short spate of slumping UFC ratings on Fox Sports 1. Also, Bellator opened its Fall season with an entertaining scrap for the middleweight title. Not that you would notice in the middle of that company’s ongoing PR nightmare.

All that, plus MasterTweet Theatre, AYFKM and Just Sayin’ Stuff.

Sounds: This week’s music comes to us courtesy of podcast listener Til Breidenbach and his straightedge hardcore band Luca Brasi. If you like the cut of their particular jib, you can find more here.

Direct downloaders can get set adrift on memory bliss right here.

Introducing the Co-Main Event Podcast Music Contest

3106Change does not roll in on the wheels of inevitability, you guys, and so we must straighten our backs and work for our freedom. That’s what Martin Luther King Jr. told us during his famous “Promised Land” speech in Memphis, Tennessee (April, 1968) and while we’re reading between the lines a little bit, we’re pretty sure what he meant was this: If you want the Co-Main Event Podcast to have a dope theme song, you have to take the initiative. That shit ain’t gonna write itself.

And so it is up to you, CME Universe, to write, record and enter the contest we hope will produce a brand new main title theme for the show. Since our intense demographic research reveals that pretty much all of you play in cool bands, are DJs, singer/songwriters and/or amazingly talented solo musicians, we figure this won’t be a problem.

You have about three weeks to get this done. Once all entries are received, your humble co-hosts will review them and select a winner. Or maybe we’ll pick some finalists and let the Universe vote on a winner. That part is up in the air at the moment. For now, all you need to concern yourself with is the creative process, and composing a dynamite song to lead the CME into the warm glow of the future. You want to make an epic seven minute video of yourself rapping on a pirate ship to go with it, that’s your business. All we need are the tunes.

ALL ENTRIES MUST BE RECEIVED BY NOON (in the one true time zone, obviously) ON JULY 16, 2013.
