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!

Sith Lord Darth Cage didn't fare as well as us...

Sith Lord Darth Cage didn't fare as well as us...

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.

Ep25: Dark Side of the Nerd

You don't know the POWER of the Dark Side

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. Tango down: Anonymous hacker Topiary nabbed in Scotland and other hacker bytes… Ryan explains DDoS attacks (Distributed Denial of Service) and the LOIC (Low Orbiting Ion Cannon). NFL (National Football League) / NFLPA (National Football League’s Players Association) lockout resolution; the Saints go marching in to practice! You can go marching into space starting November 30th; tickets to the international space station gives the average multimillionaire the chance to believe they can fly… and float. Is that aTrojan Asteroid in my Lagrangian point, or are you just happy to see me? New volcano type identified on the moon. Dark Side of OZ, how much drug intake makes this enjoyable and when idiots won’t shut up for a movie.

King Jim Baratheon

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.

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.
