Tonight! We welcome long-awaited guest, Sexual Health Expert Erin Barnes. Erin joins the fun, and enlightens us on many topics. Erin provides care and education related to sexuality, pregnancy, STD’s, abortion, abuse, and relationships. She is also a Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner with a Sexual Assault/Domestic Violence Care Center, responding to sexual assaults, and providing crisis counseling, medical care, and collecting forensic evidence. On top of that, she is a Clinician with a client-centered Women’s Clinic, working in the operating room, and doing ultrasound, recovery, and pregnancy assessment. Erin joins the talk and schools us on all sorts of great things including forensic sex toys (not what you think), and how C.S.I. is not like real life. Learn how a Canadian endured Hurricane Katrina! We talk setting career goals, and we get into some serious talk regarding sexual assault. We talk HPV, facts, treatment, and solutions. Panels are now recommending it for boys, whats the deal? Erin educates us on women’s health initiatives, and what the Proletariat can do. We congratulate Mississippi voters on rejecting Prop 26, the “Personhood” amendment. This leads to talk on religion, Geek Sex, and abortion. Though the three aren’t mutually exclusive. The mood lightens as Erin dishes on what she’s nerding on… Hint: Winter Is Coming. We talk cold weather and hot acting skills. We get back on the sex talk and discuss sexual kinks, forays, and origins. Where’s the line on sexual fetishes? Polygamy: Not just for Mormons anymore. Moving on: the new Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, and Jonathan’s “Falling Down” style day. C-Spire customer service blows. Managerial decisions and delegations. Inflation hits office supplies… the joys of capitalism! Office Depot’s impending death. Then we put a bow on it!

Weiner in the news, how Republicans seem to deal with scandals more efficiently, and when is adultery compromising to a political figure. Ryan plays devil’s advocate showing by extension of a politician’s disregard of a marriage contract, what other expectations might they toss aside. Jonathan points out all people are fallible and we shouldn’t hold politicians to unrealistically higher standards by assuming that none of them will ever be unfaithful in a marriage. Jonathan spins out into how choosing a representative is somewhat like trying to luck out on a dating service. They boys talk briefly about the next elections, Jonathan sides with hope in the intelligence of the majority Americans not to pick a Repub nominee like Palin just to get Obama out, while Ryan is more pessimistic and totally thinks America by large will blame Obama for the current economic and unemployment situations and get just about anybody different in the White House for the sake of jumping a perceivably sinking ship. Coullier Co, Florida: Couple forecloses on a Bank of America brach that owed them court-ruled compensation with help of the local Sheriff Kevin J. Rambosk’s deputies who foreclosed on the bank as compensation. Within an hour, the bank pays the couple out. You should write Sheriff Rambosk at firstname.lastname@example.org and say ‘Nerd Up, Sheriff!’ Ryan draws the obvious analogy that corporations are like Jawa sandcrawlers.
We take a musical break with the remix to Martin Solveig and Drgonette’s ‘I just came to say hello’ and jump back with observations about the video embedded below. We review the scene depicted in the remix comparing hole-in-the-wall bars in Los Angeles vs. New Orleans; the main differences seeming to be price of libations, cleanliness, attractiveness of people and the hipster-douche-bag ratio. Internet runs out of addresses, fires up a new book to write in: IPv4 to IPv6. Fly the greedy skies: Delta shows their appreciation for our service people by charging them out the butt-hole when returning from duty abroad. Silver lining as Delta gets their just deserts in a deluge of people reacting negatively as soldiers reach out to social media to vent their frustrations. Jonathan shares a tale of being burned by Delta which lead him to trust a stranger and hit the road giving the bird to the big metal birds. Ryan draws in a story of another fellow using social media to leverage power in his favor in securing his stolen MacBook Pro. Jonathan brings up concerns on the evil misuses of security programs installed on computers to spy on innocents and Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak’s view that we’ll be the playthings of machines in the future. The machines are already controlling us: a child withers away while mother levels up on World of Warcraft. New WiiU portable game system announce at E3 used PS3 and Xbox footage superimposed on WiiU to demonstrate what their system will be capable of. Lulzsec still douches, Sony still being hacked, Apple’s WWDC top points. Jonathan discovers some things about the Mac platform that Ryan is more than happy to expound upon; Ryan recommends free media player VideoLAN Converter (VLC) for Mac Windows, Linux, and many other platforms available at link below post. Steve Jobs wants to build a futuristic spaceship disc apple headquarters in Cupertino: awesome. Speaking of close encounters: Steven Spielberg flicks! A new Indiana Jones hinted at, upcoming Super 8, George Lucas is a horrible man. Wrap up with list of lists: top films, music, june movies to come and Nerding Out with Ryan finishing off Borderlands, Jonathan on Ken Burns documentary series about the civil war and its memorable theme, ‘Ashokan Farewell’.
We roll out off-the-cuff with some missed callings, top three things we think we would’ve been appropriate at from fighting in the American Revolution, to investing in stocks, to being a Nazi, a porn star and more ill-chosen fun. Speaking of stocks: Nerd tip of the month: Groupon’s IPO, grab it when it hits the shelves – Google thought they were worth 6-something BILLION, so that’s a good indicator they’re on to something good, no? Mac crash, trojan horse, Chinese kidney for iPad and Jonathan calls Ryan’s goose-stepping support for Apple out. Datacaps from Internet Service Providers loom in the shadows ahead as Netflix is cutting into their pie (your delicious wallet) sending Ryan into his crazy inner voice of psycho doom. Speaking of crazy inner voices of psycho doom: Floridian shoots the hell out of a store for being out of crawfish. Yes: crawfish. NEWS FLASH: Sara Palin says something flipping retarded and Ryan breaks down the misunderstood natural eloquence that Miss Maverick embodies in spite of being assailed by the lame-stream media and lame-stream history books and lame-stream science books.
How about some tasty Watermelon? Perfect for a summer break!
40 things that’ll make you feel old, including the 10 minutes we devote to reading this list! Floppy disks, child stars, old T.V. shows, pubescent crushes on television characters and more. Sony welcomes back users with their Welcome Back Package! Sony also welcomes back another hack, this time to SonyPictures.com as nimrod-douche-bag-hackercratic group of keyboard sophomores, LULZSEC blindly attack hapless users who just happen to have a registration with Sony by publishing their information on torrent sites. Another LULZSEC proud moment: hacking PBS for covering Wikileaks on Frontline while not gobbing uncritical praise on Julian Assange. D-bags. (Remember our podcast and site well folks…) Death claims Dr. Death: we give propers to Dr. Jack Kevorkian and his three missions in life. David Fincher’s leaked ‘Girl with the Dragon Tattoo’ trailer hits the net and is pulled BUT WE HAVE IT as pure cultural commentary, which should be protected under some law, right? … until it’s probably pulled – link for the full uncut ‘naughty’ red band trailer is after the summary. Old Spice Guy, Isaiah Mustafa: The Man Your Man Could Smell Like” does a self-funded trailer featuring himself as comic book hero Luke Cage – trailer hits the net and is vaporized (really tried to find it too, sorry ). This brings up other times actors have petitioned for their casting of a certain character: Elijah Wood as Frodo Baggins in the Lord of the Rings series and Jim Carrey as Andy Kaufman in Man on the Moon. Ryan nerds out on Borderlands on his PS3 as Jonathan nerds out on some classic X-Files.
Happy post Christ egg day as we recap our Easter holiday, Jonathan confesses church anxiety and wonders why E.T. would slip him a ruffie and cop his ball shorts… probably because his funding to phone home was revoked by government budget cuts. Speaking of aliens, Barak Obama blatantly continues to rule without materializing his placentae and hackers have made off with your confidential skimpies as the Playstation Network is compromised and is down for over a week, burning some 77 million nerds. Our reign is called into question as Nerd Aristocrats because we are not omniscient in acknowledging the passing of some famed Dr. Who actress. Rubic’s cubes take a new spin on the Sistine Chapel’s fresco of the Creation of Adam. Electronic cigarettes FDA ruling: it is not a drug, just a form of tobacco… (hunh?) 3D porn coming at you from Hong Kong (what, not Bangkok?)
We find Jonathan’s missing bottoms and Ryan recounts video taping himself sleeping (nothing to see here). Website updates about as exciting as news that Friendster states “I’m not dead… yet.” The Royal Wedding to come: hoping for benign disaster. Antoine Dodson “Hide your kids, hide your wife, ’cause we’re smokin’ weed all up in here”. List of lists. Ryan recalls a disaster of an audition then reviews movies ‘African Cats’ and ‘Hanna’. We wrap up with Nerding Out: Ryan on American Gods audio book narrated by the awesome George Guidall and Jonathan’s video editing epic continues.
No business like show business, Jonathan and Ryan recount a recent audition while real actors Brad PItt and Angelina Jolie are harangued by paparazzi in New Orleans. Both Jonathan and Ryan get something wrong and talk about it for a bit: Brad and Angelina do, in fact, have biological kids (future benevolent dictators of the planet Earth). Elizabeth Taylor has gone on to the Spirit in the Sky as Trey Parker and Matt Stone salute that Spirit with their Broadway musical, ‘The Book of Mormon’. Speaking of Mormons, Glenn Beck is a flipping lunatic alluding that Japanese disaster is probably the will of God. We move into the fun world of religion as Ryan waxes on cannibal Catholicism and dogma. Feeling good with some wrestling stories, still someone loses a one-legged ass kicking contest. Blue Angel bring out Ryan’s patriotic side and Jonathan remembers MS Flight Sim and Top Gun from Nintendo days. Ryan gets a Playstation 3 (wee!) and give his impressions on Batman: Arkham Asylum and Heavy Rain with a GeoHot callback. Falling down running for the border: Taco Bell is playing with our emotions. Satire so good its plausible enough to be believed hook, line and sinker: Jonathan brings in a story about republicans rounding down pi. Japanese disaster and Japanese Hentai. “Face off, now with less Nicholas Cage!” U.S. stretches its muscles in exercise “Odyssey Dawn”. Ryan spins the news and blues legend Pinetop Perkins playing in the sweet here after.
