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.
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.
The Aristocrats start off with a belated welcome and muse on their nerd youth a bit then talk about doing ‘ludes with Casper the friendly ghost. This gives way to Jonathan’s story of jacking himself up on caffeine pills when in high school for Quiz Bowl championships in the state capital and Ryan counters with a college tale of popping Mini-Thins and terrorizing children playing Q-Zar. In-depth Charlie Sheen tiger blood interview analysis. Jonathan gets something wrong: what anemia is and Ryan falsely accuses Jonathan of mispronouncing ‘Centurion’ and thus gets something aggressively wrong himself. Porn star karaoke, Oscar wrap-up, Fox News caught balancing the scales, the Supreme Court rules like a Supreme Chode. iPad 2 is out and Ryan talks a mite about it while Jonathan struggles to stay awake. Jonathan’s B-Day plans, some New Orleans news, listener feedback, listener photo-back: a miner’s pick in a hardware store. Ryan shares a story from the set of ‘Loss of a Teardrop Diamond’, Saving Private Ryan on broadway, Thunder Cats reboot and why all the remakes?

Child’s play with elementary theatre, Middle East unrest (still… wow, go figure), the catch-22 of Republican doctrine, Apple minute with the new MacBook Pro’s being announced and the new Thunderbolt tech to surpass USB 3.0. Ryan spirals into more Nerdosity as he questions Jonathan’s actual nerd-ness and relates how the hacker collective Anonymous is spanking intolerant church cults while lone hacker GeoHot is being spanked by Sony for cracking the PlayStation 3 source code but is getting mass public support for his legal defense fund. Jonathan follows Ryan’s movie recommendations after someone whose opinion he actually values suggests it: The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. Ryan offers a show for consideration Jonathan poo-poos on because he’s just too young to appreciate it: Men of a Certain Age. Ryan offers some bachelor diet advice. Everyone’s sick, dead baby dolphins (thanks BP), listener comments. Jonathan ranks his lady’s merits.
