We take to New Orleans for this installment of Nerd on the Street to the infamous spaceport locally known as 1135 Decatur. You will never find a more wretched hive of nerd and villainy. We must be cautious.
Hot time, summer in the city: Ryan is a pale nazi alien in his black wife beater (an equal opportunity garment). The fellas recount the New Orleans 1135 Decatur Star Wars Dance Party from fearing being gunned down getting Burger King to questioning if they should ever again believe it is a good idea to be using a video camera while under the influence of alcohol; Nerding around with some Proletariat in N.O., meeting new nerds, avoiding fisticuffs with a disgruntled homeless filmmaker and after sobering up from bringing in the dawn, Jonathan realizes we’re not as young and resilient as we once may have been.
Listener feed back! Proletariat cries for Nerd History, female-centric Nerd News, and podcast chapter markers… Well, one outta three ain’t bad: Jonathan presents This Week in Nerd History. Coming back: 120 Minutes on MTV with loved host, Matt Pinfield. New forum for your creations: ProletariART! New developments on famed master thief: D.B. Cooper. Nerding Out: Ryan on Gordon Ramsay’s Kitchen Nightmares (U.K.); Jonathan on filing papers with Zen-like OCD focus. Ryan suggests tax tips for Jonathan.
In the Nerd boat, we sail… Ryan noms on some Dan Brown, JBell noms and refines on his comedy material. Watch out, contemporary furniture, you’re on Ryan’s shit list with your unnecessarily bloated ways. Jonathan has an invention to revolutionize residential surge protection. Amy Winehouse passes on from this mortal coil. ‘Kids, don’t do drugs like an idiot’ is the message we take away. Ryan flirts with dog bollocks.

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.

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.
