Ep23: Game of Hillbillies


King Jim Baratheon

Hail Proletariat! Ryan catches up a death in his extended family and gives a soulless summary of it, the nefarious grip of smoking and the baseness of Grief Greed.  Updates on the Nerd Aristocracy videos; Fans’ Appeal to the NFL gets an ‘EPIC GAY’ comment on YouTube! from a trisomy 21 douche bag. This leads to a conversation about what compels someone to rail ‘Queer’, ‘Faggot’, etc. at someone else whom they perceive violating the norm usually in the area of costuming, exuberance or performance and that the origin of this type of outburst is usually from an inordinately ignorant hidden vagina of the heart weeping.  How an editor can make or break a piece of film.  Dead Before Their Prime Time: T.V. shows cut down too young… too young.  Apple hardware / operating system updates and the slaughter of the white MacBook and DVD drives on the Mac Mini.  Some fun with Apple’s EULA and Richard Dreyfuss’ lack of a demanding career curriculum.  Channel ‘Teen Nick’ to air ‘The 90’s are all that!': keeping it real with ‘Double Dare’, ‘Clarissa Explains it all’, ‘Doug’ and more.  Nerding out with Magic: the Gathering, Duels of the Planeswalkers on the PS3 and Game of Thrones blue balls.

    Yeah comedy central puts out new shows like people are putting out bad super hero movies but The Chappelle Show wasn’t pulled, Dave left to go do the “black guy exploring himself” thing in Africa. But if you read into now he is doing stand up comedy again and he is brilliant so I’m sure he will have a show again. But yeah Dave pulled the show in the production for season 3, wasn’t ripped in typical comedy central fashion.

    Correct. When I referred to Chappelle’s Show, I was referencing Comedy Central’s tendency to drag shows out that have ended for one reason or another. They did it with Chappelle, and they do it routinely with South Park as well. Move stuff around, play one episode every 3 weeks, draw out 1 season for 9 months. Its crazy.

    True that. They could probably keep more of their original content shows if people could rely on being able to tune in on the time they advertise. And Ryan did some pretty awesome editing on the Nerds on the Street, wanted to shout out to that. Been in the editing bay but never for anything without a defined timeline and just the nature of editing could have made that a pile of shit, great work very funny. Your performance was good as a comedy news reporter. The whole piece reminded me a lot of Daily Show/Colbert Report faux correspondence.
