  • Willow Watch Special :: Interview with Willow Screenwriter Bob Dolman

    willowwatch1 600We interrupt State of the Empire‘s regularly scheduled Star Wars news and updates for a Nerdy Show event that’s been years in the making: our first full-length installment of Willow Watch and an interview Willow screenwriter Bob Dolman!

    Yes, the bones have spoken. Our ongoing investigation into the 1988 Lucasfilm fantasy epic, Willow, has led us on an incredible journey. What began as a flight of fancy that we might someday see a Willow 2 from Disney has become a mad quest to track down the full story of this fantastic film and signs of what might come next. We’ve uncovered strange expanded universe secrets from novelizations and source books, dissected a long-forgotten animated series that never came to fruition, and speculated on the existence of much behind-the-scenes worldbuilding. Warwick Davis has been talking about the possibility of Willow 2 for ages, director Ron Howard recently said “never say never”, and here we are – potentially on the precipice of a new dawn for the nearly 30 year old fan favorite.

    What better time for Cap, Doug, and Matt to team up with the man who wrote the world of Willow into life? For the first time ever, hear the full story of how the film came to be – from Lucas’ early outline, to a fortuitous dinner with myth master Joseph Campbell, and remarkable on-set moments. Bob’s got unprecedented insights into the creative process of working with George Lucas, tales of Nelwyn hookups, the of the infamous deleted boat sequence, and so much more. Let’s face it, without this episode you’ll dwell in darkness. Step into an incredible world of behind-the-scenes adventure: (more…)

  • Friday Night Fanfiction :: We’re Up All Night To Get Bucky

    FNF 1400The drunken fanfiction podcast you’ve been waiting for! Friday Night Fanfiction combines dramatic readings of the worst-of-the-worst NSFW fanfic with drinking games.

    Here in FNF Central we’ve got more fluff than a pillow factory as we venture farther into the teenage sitcom-drama of our season finale longfic, “Is It Pretending If I Already Want You” by OhCaptainMyCaptain. We yell at the characters to do something, because it’s obvious they’re going to be courting and mating by the end of the story, but we have to go through so much inner high school pain that we all actually returned to high school today by accident.

    piecast reduxIt’s EPIC PIEcast! Party with Nelson Lugo and Schaffer the Darklord as they dust off every corner of pop culture for discussion, debate, and deconstruction with all the snark and witty banter that they can muster.

    It is a period of civil war when vile gangster LUGO CALNELSSION and the evil VADER THE DARTHLORD dock their starship in the wretched and villainous STUDIO 6C for an all Star Wars-themed episode of the EPIC PIECAST. Nerdcore hero MC FRONTALOT (The People Vs. George Lucas, 2011) joins this band of rebels to examine THE FORCE AWAKENS before challenging our hosts to an electrifying trivia contest.

  • Nerdy Show 247 :: David Bowie Lives

    ep247Nerds are by definition outsiders. If you think differently, loose yourself in fiction or history, or do something strange that the “normies” can’t categorize, you’re certain to find yourself walking a more solitary path. Lucky us the way ahead has been lit by the luminary nerds before us. Luckier still that we lived in a world with David Bowie, a nerd who transformed our reality into a weirder, wilder, geekier place.

    Join Cap and Marc With A C, two Bowie-obsessed peoploids, as they share their love of this Lad Insane and personal stories of how the Thin White Duke changed their lives. It’s a crash course for the ravers and the novices too with tales from deep in small town record bins and long-forgotten shopping malls, a first-hand account of the longest show Bowie ever played, and strange or little-known facts about the wild-eyed boy from Brixton.

  • Nerdy Show 246 :: The Gene Pool: Human-Animal Hybrids and the Deadpool Movie

    ep246Every other week, The Nerdy Show Network’s flagship podcast unloads on the latest geek news and happenings!

    No doubt about it – reality is getting stranger by the day. When scientists are citing sci-fi fears of human-animal hybridization as a danger too real to risk, we’re officially off the deep end. Whether we go the route of Animal Farm, Island of Dr. Moreau, or even an anthropomorphic utopia; Nerdy Show will be there for off-color commentary on this crazy nerd world of ours.

    Meanwhile, in other laboratory fiction: our favorite Merc With A Mouth, Deadpool is finally hitting the big screen in a true to form adaptation of his murderous misadventures. Or at least we hope it’s true to form… Join Cap, boR, Jess, and Doug as we take on the fan-requested topic of the upcoming film as well as get you hip to the latest craze: Pocket Mortys! We swap stories of collecting an entourage of young boys and making them battle – similar to, but legally-distinct from Pokémon.

  • On My Obsession with Hamilton

    HamiltonJess first published this article on her personal blog, but she thought you fine people might enjoy reading about it here, too!

    Fun fact: I’m a huge nerd. [Surprise!]

    Part of the territory of being a huge nerd means that I never simply “like” things: I’m either completely obsessed or couldn’t be bothered. Lin-Manuel Miranda’s hip-hop musical Hamilton just so happens to fall into the “totally obsessed” category. I listened to literally nothing but the Hamilton Original Cast Recording from October to December. And I’m talking actual literal here – I needed this musical in my earholes so badly that even though it was only released in October, it’s my most-listened-to album of 2015.

  • Friday Night Fanfiction :: Magical Healing Wang

    FNF 1400The drunken fanfiction podcast you’ve been waiting for! Friday Night Fanfiction combines dramatic readings of the worst-of-the-worst NSFW fanfic with drinking games.

    At long last – we finally get to the meat and potatoes and/or stuffing of Season 3: the longfic! That’s a piece of fan fiction that’s a true journey; lasting multiple episodes. This time, we have a riveting, action-packed adventure featuring Marvel’s greatest her- wait, no. It’s an alternate universe fic featuring Steve Rodgers and James Barnes (aka Captain America and his pal Bucky!) getting in a faux romance to ward off Buckey’s overbearing family during a vacation. Presenting: “Is It Pretending If I Already Want You” by OhCaptainMyCaptain.

    This thing is fluffy. Very fluffy. This is a friggin’ fluff FACTORY. We’re going to make it though. We know there’s sex. We know it’s worth it. This isn’t like the Season 2 debacle – we know that some way, some how there’s going to be a big phallic volcano that we can toss our golden penis-ring onto as magical eagles made of boobs come rescue us or something.

    Let us begin to get there and back again something something hobbits. (more…)

  • All-New Rogue One: A Star Wars Story Teaser Trailer Coming with Captain America: Civil War [Exclusive]

    Still recoiling from the shock of having seen a brand-new Star Wars movie? Well, settle in, ’cause there’s a whole new film less than a year away and we’ll get our first real glimpse on May 6th.

    Rogue One: A Star Wars Story releases on December 16th, 2016 and is the first Star Wars spin-off film, taking place outside the series’ numbered episodes. Directed by Godzilla‘s Gareth Edwards, the film tells the story of the Rebels who stole the Death Star plans just prior to Episode IV: A New Hope.

    State of the Empire, our Star Wars podcasting team, has heard from a reliable industry source that the trailer for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story will hit theaters attached to Captain America: Civil War. Easy guess says fans will see it online two days prior for May the Fourth. The even bigger deal? This teaser is not the teaser shown to fans at 2015’s Star Wars Celebration. (more…)
