Ep20: Buzz Kill



Start the cheer with our 5th month show, first-hand accounts of car wrecks, and Jonathan goes to N.O. to sniff out business opportunities. Jonathan fires the shot of the Nerd Aristocracy channel to be soon on YouTube then trips on nerd: Aurora Borealis remix with ‘I Ran (So Far Away)’. Ryan gives a spoiler-free-zone review of J.J. Abram’s ‘Super 8′.
Jonathan yearns to see the Aurora Borealis before he dies and Ryan wants to trip with eskimos. Ryan Reynolds defends New Orleans, causing our Ryan to detest Ryan Reynolds even more, because this forces him (our Ryan) to like Ryan Reynolds even more. The boys romance about New Orleans. Shout out to artist works outlet: the Creativity Studio, 1508 Government Street Ocean Springs, Mississippi featuring Jonathan Bell’s wood burning and other artist’s creations. Jonathan nerds out to New Orleans on WYES art auction, ‘Art for Art’s Sake’ and his true wishes come out as he dreams of collecting serial killer’s artwork.

Ryan updates LULZSEC activities and criticizes their tactless, tasteless behavior but does fairly posit: are they actually benefitting the future of online security by exposing poor systems currently in place or should they just be raped with broom handles? U.S. Government is funding ‘internets in a suitcase’ to ensure a resilient de-centralized network that can operate despite the attempts of oppressive regimes to quash communications out of the country and to control citizenry. Tech and They Might Be Giants, arguable one of the most nerd loved bands around and their history with computers. Jonathan brings up the sticky social moment of when friends recommend horrible music and how this affects one’s opinion of another. Jonathan inherits some primo records of country legends when country was country and how to find a record player nowadays? Humans evolving slower than first thought… really? Trackbacks doing our work for us; DJ Andy Redrum and us build a bridge with ATHFEST’s website. Nerding out on Men of a Certain Age now continuing season 2, playing Resident Evil 5, and Dr. John is made of eggs.

    RE5 Is awesome. Do not play it alone the partner to Chris Redfield, Sheva, has the worst programming for a co-op npc ever. She gets herself killed, wastes ammo, picks up shit she shouldn’t pick up and other terrible things for someone you trust to save your life. The game stays pretty awesome until the series long time antagonist, Wesker, becomes Neo from the Matrix and kills the boner the rest of the game brings. You should spend the $10 bucks on a previously owned copy of RE4 it is probably the best in the series and is the first to introduce the over the shoulder shooter system to the series so it’s a little monumental. Other credentials would include being named Game of the Year for 2004. Pretty awesome series.

    Wow, so RE4 came out in ’04 and ’05 wasn’t released until 2011? Crazy.

    I think he means 5 came out in ’11, but it seems RE4 came out in ’05 and RE5 came out in ’09… Nice, Jeff – Something I’ll never forgive the Matrix series for is all the horrid copycats from movies to video games… (the creators thinking) “Hmmm, we need a bad-ass bad guy here… I know, we’ll have him dodge bullets in rotoscoped slow motion and do flips to avoid bullets, wasting tremendous energy rather than just dodging to the side or dropping to the ground”… Me and the missus are cutting thru RE5 -currently, we’re on the boat and just deep-sixed Wesker’s Russian ho that sounds a lot like the variety of big boobed creatively vapid bad guys that carry a stock ‘Natasha’ accent after she turned into the giant vomit-octopus. (You know the one) I really like how the game forces you to give a damn about the other player and help ‘em out, how they starve you of ammo like a junkie being on a forced smack diet and how I giggle at the level of disgusting they deliver.

    I can’t recall if the feature is unlocked before or after campaign is completed, but the Mercenary mode is the most notable game option in 5. It was also introduced in 4 but it gives you what you really play Resident Evil for; hordes of undead in wave-style-combat. Still recommend RE4 for completely better than RE5 in story and gameplay, but alas it lacks the splendor of co-op killing.
