Ep22: Crunk It Up

Horrifying new cigarette labels

Horrifying new cigarette labels

We cordially welcome the Proletariat back from a break and talk about how the show is best consumed like a single malt whiskey and -by extension of that analogy- how Australians are apparent rampant drunkards.  We update on our first video post “Fans’ Appeal to the NFL” and give props to offensive tackle Jermon Bushrod and New Orleans blog Canal Street Chronicles for giving our video some shout-out love.


Jonathan’s art house porn experience, Harry Potter about to climax, Geekdom versus Nerdosity and how our creative endeavors stop people in their tracks (and sometimes careers).  Ryan helps his old man, talented Gulf Coast impressionist of fine art, Vernon Reinike; Jonathan helps himself to San Fermin in New Orleans and takes us with him on a picturesque recount of a day worth living complete with gator traffic, Friday night shootings, Krystal burgers and more.


Today’s intermission brought to you by Jelly Roll Morton and ‘Dead Man Blues, Take 1′ from the 1926-27 sessions of the Red Hot Peppers, as used in “Fan’s Appeal to the NFL”


Back for seconds as Ryan contributes his experience of last year’s San Fermin and how his wife ended up in Penthouse, thanks to the talented long lens of Andreas Koch (pronounced ‘kotch’, not ‘cock’, despite what marketing may lead you to believe.  The guys romance analog porn, gruesome cigarette images, how the liberal school system is socializing children into not flushing their poo, the supreme court ruling fatalities are artistic expressions and Jonathan’s haunted childhood with Hansel and Gretel.  Speaking of getting medieval: Ryan recommends Black Death, featuring Sean ‘Boromir’ Bean’ now on NetFlix instant streaming, as Jonathan experiences deprivation of Mr. Bean in the form of Game of Thrones.  How nerds are becoming relevant and a powerful class of people after years of oppression and persecution.  Trailer vs. Teaser.  J.K. Rowling initiates online perpetual jackpot for herself and descendants until the end of creation: ‘Pottermore’.  Finally Ryan nerds on Quantum Leap and how Scott Bakula helped raise him.

    I am on the tail end of your generation’s work in bringing dignity to nerds. I am a sociable nerd and saw the clear gradation between what strife was involved in having such a burden between early grade school onto my recent finish of high school. High school is not so bad any more unless you truly go out of your way to make people want to kick your ass. Thank you.

    I enjoyed how you used the same tune from the YouTube video for filler between segments. Nice reinforcement there. About the nerds paving the way, I must tip my hat to them. I grew up in that interim period where society was transitioning. I vaguely remember being made fun of in Jr. High for being a nerd of epic proportions, but by the time I made it to high school it felt as if I had set a trend or something. If there’s such a thing as a popular nerd I was one of them. Nerd Queen perhaps? It says something that the most popular organization in my high school when I was there, was the fine arts club (which no longer exists). And I was in that as an officer. Opened a lot of doors later when we all decided to form the DCPC (Del City Presidents Club) which was simply all the presidents of all the organizations in the school together who did, of all things, school art projects including painted murals, benches hand crafted by industrious band members, and the first rival school band vs. band powder-puff style football game. Actually got more money out of that then the real powder-puff game.

    Hey guys. Where are those Potter links? I am one of those nerds that would like to read that butter beer article and see that video of the cast on the last days of filming.

    Sorry about that!

    And “Saying Goodbye…” Beware, you WILL cry. I did, and I’m not afraid to admit it.
