Ep12: Leaving Las Vegas6
We come back a week after the fellas have their own respective stints in entertainment. Ryan plays the other man in short film the Long Lost Last Weekend and Jonathan is the opener / emcee at the Improv at Harrah’s on-the-stip in lovely, historic Las Vegas. Jonathan comes face-to-bicep with male dance group ‘Thunder from Down Under’ and gets phat bank for cameo in Jonah Hex residuals (no, not really). The guys do a self obsessed IMDB star meter ranking update in light of entertainment gigs that causes flaccid egos, but hey – the Nerd Aristocracy does break over 2000 unique listens with about 200 proud Nerd Proletariet listeners!
DJ Andyredrum lends some more tunes for our break as we learn that yes, finally Pirates of the Caribbean 4 is announced. This causes a general debate over films who should’ve never have seen a sequel. New Wonder Woman costume upsets nerds and breaks the bank accounts of Cosplay fans. The Corporation for Public Broadcasting keeps its funding!! (for now) Tax the fat cat debate, Jesse ‘The Body’ / ‘The Governor’ Ventura likes E.T. and still has no time to bleed. Rebel nerd hijacks part of Gaddafi’s clamped down communications network and claims it for the resistance. Love hurts for true: heart break is physical pain. Nerding out: Ryan on Neil Gaiman’s Fragile Things -the title of which he cannot recall-, Jonathan continues to edit his six-part mini series for the Ken Burns and Oliver Stone epic ‘Love Leaks’. Ryan gives his hands-on impression of the Motorola Xoom and we have some Nerd Aristocracy swag to share around.
