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.
We take it to the people with our first installment of Nerd on the Street as we stake out the premiere of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2 from parts unknown to the interwebs. Please leave comments on the YouTube video page. Nerd up!
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.
We’re 21: now legal to be boozed up and be date raped! Ryan complains (I hope you’re seated) and proposes a Nerd Aristocracy a day. How hackers are to nerds as the mafia is to Italians: Lulzsec; a brief history from HBGary Federal, Anonymous, hacking the Serious Organised Crime Agency (SOCA), the arrest of Ryan Cleary and the latest hijinks (as of our recording, ‘natch). Facebook stalking vs. e-mail hacking. Jonathan brings up FaceBook stalking isn’t what its cracked up to be as everyone is just trying to show off for each other. Friend of the show Jesse Meriwether catches a break: new gig! The fellows review Jon Stewart’s interview with former New Orleans Mayor, Ray C. Nagin. D.J. Andyredrum plays by the time this podcast hits the web, and man was it awesome! R.I.P. Clarence Clemons, long time horn man and Obi-Wan for The Boss. Legendary blues guitarist visits the ms gulf coast, and all he got was this lousy amputation. Amy Winehouse gives her career an amputation in Belgrade-arus-grandé? Jonathan reviews the Green Lantern, spoiler free and biliously honest. This bleeds into discussion about when modern CG can kill basic, classic story telling. The guys preview the new Conan the Barbarian movie based off of the trailer; Ryan attacks the laziness of filmmaking theseadays with shots and filmmaking techniques that are becoming cliche and the adoption of a too polished look (in an obviously phony way) that detracts from the whole of the story. Jonathan defends the popcorn movie for popcorn movie’s sake. Spoiler: Spider Man is to die! OMG! WTF? Jonathan breaks some disturbing news. Read the link below for the full scoop: their is a save as it appears it is some alternative universe series: ‘Ultimate Comics Spider-Man’ vs. the ‘Amazing Spider Man’ where he will continue slinging on.
Random computer things with Ryan: custom domain names, ICANN approves new ‘dots’ like .com, .net; now with more confusion! Their will now be .ritzcrackers, .nerdaristocracy (hopefully), etc. Ryan takes us through what awaits ahead. Somehow the guys spin off on the innate laziness of people who don’t care about issues unless it effects the price of their Budweiser or ‘Deal or No Deal’ schedule. ‘My Big Fat Greek Deficit’, Jonathan updates us on trouble in Greece’s economy.
Marc Cuban, owner of the Dallas Mavericks is no scab, tips big for a $110000 bar tab after teams wins big. Jonathan streaming on IMDB (link below)!

Revolution to digital photography: new tech allows you to focus your pictures after you take a picture: Lytro has the answer in light-field technology. Jonathan is stalked by marketing and the haunting, haunting thing that is Kreayshawn.
First off, let me just congratulate myself on the wittiness of the title of this blog. See, I’m talking about hipster music in this post, and I change the spelling from “hostile” to “hostel”… because hipsters like hostels. Amazing.
I digress. In the upcoming episode (Episode 21), I talk about the online ad-blitz I’ve been bombarded with, featuring the worst rapper in the history of all things that could remotely be defined as hip-hop, Kreayshawn. In any case, I am posting four screenshots of said examples below. I would rather see commercials for NASCAR tickets, or Axe Body Spray, or something else I will never consider buying.
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.
