The guys get to it on Episode 41 with talk of fortune cookies, and ridding oneself of canines. Child rearing and financial splurges are discussed. Ryan needs Viagra for his trash cans. Stealing for the environment, and Jonathan gives some life rules and advice. Jonathan reviews the J. Edgar film from his “Son of a G-man” perspective, which leads into a socio-economic breakdown of the Twilight fanbase. Ryan reviews a hip-harp concert, and speaks about religious production value and holy concert lighting. Jonathan seeks help from the Proletariat on religious nomenclature. Anne Rice’s two cents are put in, and the FBI infiltrates the NOPD… in a good way. The guys discuss showers, and not the golden kind. Some interesting drug-related medical studies are mulled over, which leads to college stories, and an analysis of Sherlock Holmes’ substance abuse. Does weight loss equal penis growth? We wrap it up with talk of artificial sweeteners and a preview of Episode 42 with guest Amy J! This Week in Nerd History and that’s that for Episode 41. Give it a whirl!

Ryan pays for it and recounts former girlfriends, disparagingly young in this case. this leads into a chat about relationship age ranges. Jonathan does not want to have sex with Ryan’s wife with his compliments of her comeliness, we talk dolling up for going out. Speaking of snazzing out: Blue Light Special, fedoras on fire sale at a closing K-Mart near you! Hats beget the need for what? Hat racks, of course. Jonathan schools Ryan on this thing called football and New Orleans Saints player Steve Gleason inspires us beyond ourselves. The wisdom of the ages, put on your oxygen tank, because this session is about to get deep.
The new Modern Library addition about historical awesomeness of the Civil War, virtual monkeys are actually scripting Shakespeare in between flinging virtual poo. R.E.M. is breaking up (or would it be waking up, if your R.E.M. ceases?). Hipster whose only creation is criticism, doubt, and neckbeards preemptively blame Lana Del Rey for selling out. Neil Patrick Harris enjoys being a ‘sell out’, ‘whore’, and probably a couple of cool cars and a nice career he can be proud of. Lessons of compromising your voice to tune into the ears of an audience. Cajun Mikes featuring the most awesome sandwich board in New Orleans. Happy B-Day, Jim Henson.
Join Team Gleason! Help the cause!

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.
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.

'saddle up pardner.
Ryan leaves his corporeal being for some freaky out-of-body experience (OOBE) unrelated to drug abuse as Jonathan enjoys abusing a drug in the form of his new-found coffee appreciation. This gives way to Jonathan’s blitzkrieg on writing off the Egyptian people altogether, detesting other people’s taste in music -particularly Kid Rock and the whiskey bottler / platinum-selling country music superstars Jonathan and Ryan had never heard of: Montgomery Gentry. Then things mellow out as Ryan reviews Black Swan, theater audiences, the Social Network and unnecessary CGI as Jonathan gets furious about Angry Driver: 3D’s formulaic blah-ness and shames the universe for their lack of concern about the snuffing of federal funding for the arts or something. Daddy needs a new pair of shoes: the Shoe Carnival not just a shoe store: it’s an event! Tyler Durden lives on in the worst way possible. Ryan spins the news and Jonathan gets romantic on the phone without paying $5.99/min.
