Ep17: Heartbreak Hotel

Play
Ouch...

Ouch...

Jonathan’s pain goes to the core from his ripped out tooth a few weeks ago to flu, and now his heart is eviscerated by what was once referred to as ‘the girlfriend’. We spend some time as Jonathan blows off the boil from being burned and Ryan manages to be polite and not crack wise; he is now seeking medical attention for his teeth-severed tongue. If you just want the light stuff skip on to 57:35 after the break where we pick up with some of the best breakup songs as recommended by our audience, the missed Rapture, how rape is like a flat tire and more.

Ep16: Spinning with dj andyredrum

DJ andyredrum in the house tonight!  We start with an update on Ms. Jesse Meriwether getting the Nerd Proletariat bump from doing our show and through no virtue of effort on her part: she lands a commercial gig with SitterCity.com, soon to be terrifying audiences into using their service.  Speaking of terrifying: set the date, hurry up and repent, the Rapture’s just around the corner!  Oakland, California ministry Family Radio Worldwide has the 411 on God’s plans.  This brings us to spread the fundamentalist distain all around as we all know nothing takes the ‘fun’ out of fundamentalism like a fundamentalist.  Arnold Schwarzenegger dusting off the help: yowza!  The fellas give some advice on being super rich, famous and how to cheat properly.  It’s a Small DMZ After All… Disney seeks to trademark ‘Seal Team 6©™”, Ryan calls the validity of this story into question… (if you know the truth, set us straight in show comments).  We serve up an update on the PlayStation Network, Japan forbids it to come back up on their turf, another frickin’ security hole and Ryan discovers Mad-Maxianesque shoot-em-up: Borderlands.  We sent a heart felt message to our fellow countrymen in the flood-impacted regions of the South.  <a href=”sincere moment”></a>

After the break we bring in dj andyredrum on the virtual horn as he catches us up on forth-coming Wired 2011: Athens Dance Music Festival during AthFest (as in Athens, Georgia: say it with me… ‘ATH’-fest, not to be confused with the Berlin booty buffet for lispers).  Andy schools us on the world of electronic music from the geopolitics of remixing other’s music to the boom, bloom and bust of 90’s electronic music as compared to the stand up comedy boom of the same time: from underground to stratosphere.  How electronic music is everywhere now as it has seeped into many facets of our culture from Lady Gaga to Crest commercials.  The Complete Proletariat’s Guide to Electronic Music: the Unimpeachable Definitive Objective End-All-Be-All Edict as espoused by self-proclaimed music authority: dj andyredrum.  Andy’s tender roots in NYC, early exposure to club music, sharpening his skills in New Orleans and views on drug usage in the music scene.  Andy tells us about currently playing Club 8E’s and Club 9E’s in downtown Athens and playing fart-joke music to please the crowd as his soul cries blood a little.  We ask Andy to give us ‘copy n paste’ musical taste if we’re trying to pretend we know something about electronic music: your cheat sheet to plying impressionable young girls to your will.  And by will, I mean penis.  We wrap up on some Nerding Out on external hard drives, botched tooth extractions and home crafts, pretty much summing up who we are: gay geeks in pain.

Ep14:PSN Hacked and 3D Porn is Whack

Play

and I thought Avatar was a porn...

Happy post Christ egg day as we recap our Easter holiday, Jonathan confesses church anxiety and wonders why E.T. would slip him a ruffie and cop his ball shorts… probably because his funding to phone home was revoked by government budget cuts.  Speaking of aliens, Barak Obama blatantly continues to rule without materializing his placentae and hackers have made off with your confidential skimpies as the Playstation Network is compromised and is down for over a week, burning some 77 million nerds.  Our reign is called into question as Nerd Aristocrats because we are not omniscient in acknowledging the passing of some famed Dr. Who actress.  Rubic’s cubes take a new spin on the Sistine Chapel’s fresco of the Creation of Adam.  Electronic cigarettes FDA ruling: it is not a drug, just a form of tobacco… (hunh?)  3D porn coming at you from Hong Kong (what, not Bangkok?)

We find Jonathan’s missing bottoms and Ryan recounts video taping himself sleeping (nothing to see here).  Website updates about as exciting as news that Friendster states “I’m not dead… yet.”  The Royal Wedding to come: hoping for benign disaster.  Antoine Dodson “Hide your kids, hide your wife, ’cause we’re smokin’ weed all up in here”.  List of lists.  Ryan recalls a disaster of an audition then reviews movies ‘African Cats’ and ‘Hanna’.  We wrap up with Nerding Out: Ryan on American Gods audio book narrated by the awesome George Guidall and Jonathan’s video editing epic continues.

Ep13: It’s 420 … man

I meant to post this earlier...

A brief history of 420 before a bummer reflection on the BP oil spill and the Japanese nuclear issue… could that give them a superhero: ‘Spidersan’?  Decisive males can play it by ear also.  Nic Cage in the Big Easy having a Little Hard time remembering exactly where he lives.  Speaking of New Orleans… the 5-O, where y’at?  Drive-bys and cat killings galore as cops are slow to react.  Ryan spins the news: personal freedom.  Jonathan discovers the freedom of electronic cigarettes and the tech pitfalls thereof.  Jonathan’s head held high in Vegas.  Easter on the way brings thoughts of holiday candies to our minds and Jonathan asks Ryan what holiday mascots he lies to his child about.  Speaking of candy: top (prescription) drugs in the United States, what do they tell us about our society?  Speaking of strung out:  Trump for president – what happens when unregulated ego jumps on the Tea Party wagon?  Some news: cops can make your cell phone their bitch – now with CellBrite(™) / Restrepo director killed in Libya doing something meaningful while we bring you a List of Lists: top things in film / music / etc…  Ryan reviews Scream 4, the original Tron and Tron legacy, Jonathan recalls his favorite lion film Savage Harvest (narrowly beating out the Lion King).  Some nerding out: Tiger Woods game by EA / Saints update / Ricky Gervais’ new show on HBO and a wrap up with IMDB star meter ego indulgence.

Ep12: Leaving Las Vegas

Thanks for all the inebriated amnesia!

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.

Ep11: Computer Insecurity 101

Syrian hacker Mr. Venus' tramp stamp

Venus rhymes with...

Oh the irony!  The Nerd Aristocracy’s .com is hacked by Syrian Mr. Venus and some others from the ole’ Soviet Bloc.  This brings Ryan into an in-depth and flawed detail what a ‘White Hat’, ‘Black Hat’, and ‘Red Hat’ are in terms of computer security.  Some brief parenting tips flawed in a different way that will undoubtedly raise a red flag for DHS and Ryan assuredly mis-corrects Jonathan about the sex of Dr. Spock.  Ryan gives his impressions of the Nintendo 3DS in which he is anticipating impending class-action suits from the parents of cross-eyed children and families of morons who are bound to walk in front of buses.  This brings a general stink eye towards the latest 3D hype in general.  Jonathan holds on to his late adoption of new tech and the virtues (and shame) of it.  Jonathan goes to HubFest in Hattiesburg, Mississippi drawing an enthusiastic ‘Meh’ from him as the festival pleasure center of his brain is oatmeal after living in New Orleans for years.  Jonathan Bell to play the Improv at Harrah’s on the strip in Las Vegas from April 5th – April 10th!  Free tix to all who email mail@nerdaristocracy.com.  Jonathan and Ryan assess their fact-checking department’s record on par with Fox News and realize that just because facts are wrong doesn’t mean the discussion isn’t entertaining!  Jonathan recommends an excellent docu-memorial about Greg Giraldo featuring some of the most talented comedians around and some of his personal experience in the world that is Comic.

Back from the break with cut-n’-paste religion: Thomas Jefferson’s Cliff Notes, an 85-page Bible reduction served with a side of philosophy of spirituality vs. religious doctrine paired with a tangy Council of Nicaea that Ryan mis-dates by about a millennia: but who’s counting?  “She’s a witch!”  And she’s prevented from securing the friendly skies: TSA agent fired for casting spells on car heaters.  Natalie Portman’s stand-in dancer (dance-in?) from Black Swan raises a bitch fest wanting people to realize the movie is not actually real while sabotaging any chance she’ll ever work in film again.  This brings Ryan and Jonathan to share some experiences standing in on The Curious Case of Benjamin Buttons, Final Destination 4: 3D, and Freshmen Orientation.  Ryan assesses that Brad Pitt can be like the Ark of the Covenant: powerful, silent and ‘Don’t look at it, Marion’, while Jason Flemyng is a jolly chap and David Fincher is accommodating and generally awesome.  Science news: computer can map your dreams and Jonathan’s concern about runaway technology that’ll enable Transformer-armed paraplegics to burst through you wall and steal Diet Coke from your fridge.  We end with an overview of the (IMDB) Internet Movie DataBase’s Star Meter – Ryan down and Jonathan up.
