  • Friday Night Fanfiction :: I Don’t Want Cake in My Ass, Steve

    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.

    Deep breath. We stand on the precipice of… FINALLY FINISHING THE LAST PART OF “SONIC IN THE SEARCH FOR LOVE” FOR EVER AND EVER UNTIL THE END OF TIME PLEASE DO NOT SEND US ANYMORE. Please read along with the end of our terrible journey in “Dreams are eternal, search for the true story” by OathkeeperRoxasxNamine09.

    After that, we read “She Wants The B” by softplops – a morbid and terrible Bee Movie fanfic. It… It’s not the Jerry Seinfeld that we know and love. Finally, we attempt to read a Wrestlemania fic starring John Cena and JFK for some reason. Behold: “WrestleMania 1962 Voldemort, John Cena, John F Kennedy, and More” by CottoneyeJoe. (more…)

  • Switching Weapons – A Life of Expectancy

    Switching Weapons

    With the process of my separation ramping up, I’m finding it challenging to find opportunities to sit down and write. But fear not, I’m still managing to find them! Apologies for the delay of the article, but life should now have calmed down enough to provide a more sustainable schedule. Fortunately, as with last time, this leads directly into my topic.

    When I was bright-eyed and bushy-tailed, hopping on the bus from Akron, OH on the way to Ft Benning, GA for Basic Combat Training, I only had stereotypes and hearsay to go off of in terms of what to expect. I had seen movies, I’d heard stories, I’d read articles and I’d played enough video games at that point to have, what I thought, was a general idea of what Basic would be like. Some of it was true, some of it wasn’t. Did my expectations color my experience? Of course they did. Did they ruin it? In some aspects, I suppose they did, but for the most part, no.

    I’ve seen a lot of things happen in my beloved gaming world recently; games being delayed, games releasing with bugs and performance issues, games not delivering on promises made, and the reaction has always been the same. Hatred. Vitriol. Volatility. The gaming community sees an imperfect game the way a swarm of sharks sees a scoop of chum. They sense the blood in the water and they frenzy. Two years ago it was Watch_Dogs disappointing a horde of gamers that wanted it to be “Person of Interest—The Game.”  (Kudos if you get that reference)  Last year it was Batman: Arkham Knight and its abysmal performance on PC. A few months ago, Destiny (still my current obsession) fans complained that the April update was too-little too-late. Most recent, it was the No Man’s Sky fiasco. (more…)

  • EPIC PIEcast :: Episode 46 :: Batman v Coolzey

    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.

    As lifelong Bat-fans, Nelson Lugo and Schaffer the Darklord have been salivating for the seemingly endless smorgasbord of Dark Knight goodies that DC Comics and Warner Bros have been cooking up all year. However, after greedily gobbling up Suicide Squad, Killing Joke and Rebirth for this month’s episode of EPIC PIEcast, our co-hosts find themselves with stomachaches. Later, LA-based rapper Coolzey makes a tour pit stop at Studio #6C for a one-on-one chit-chat with Schaffer about life on the road and the thrill of challenging audience expectations. How many LL Cool J lyrics can Lugo recite? Where did Schaffer bomb the hardest? Did Coolzey know about the gun in the van? These questions will appear in the show notes of this month’s episode.

  • Nerdy Show 270 :: Mayonnaise Hole Fundamentals

    ep270The Nerdy Show Network’s flagship podcast unloads on the latest geek news and happenings!

    You can find a lot of life lessons in mayonnaise hole. Sometimes you lean in so close you’d swear you’d snap in two, and the dang mayonnaise just won’t sheath the hole. But you keep leanin’! You lean until you sink that mayo – because you know nothing worth fighting for in this world is easy. And then there’s trust. A good fisher ain’t worth a damn without an anchor to back them up. Ah hell, I’m gettin’ ahead of myself…

    Join Cap, boR, Nicky and Brandon for an odyssey into our peculiar nerd lives and the plethora of pop culture we’ve consumed. We share our thoughts on the pilot for a new live action adaptation of the comic book classic: The Tick. We weigh the experience vs. the controversy of the galaxy-wandering game, No Man’s Sky. We give our two cents on Laika’s latest stop motion feature, Kubo and the Two Strings. We pitch ad slogans for undergarments made out of spider webs, hunt for bat nipples, give Carrot Top a movie idea, and yes, Cap finally talks about Camp Fangamer 2016 – the strange adventures therein, and the birth of the 21st century’s #1 sport: mayonnaise hole.

    bad storytellersBad Storytellers is a podcast about writing and things that are written. Join four friends on the road to becoming professional writers as they unleash new stories on-air, criticize each others’ work, discuss pop culture influences, and conceive on-the-spot trailers for imaginary films.

    In this episode, we discuss the new Ghostbusters film and have a spoiler-free discussion about Stranger Things (with a spoiler-laden discussion tucked safely away at the very end). Liam brings in his revised and much improved first chapter of his story, and Josh turns in his most difficult chapter yet! But that’s not all – we’ve been gifted with two fan submissions for critique!

    Join us as the gang says farewell until next season. We hope to see you all again soon.

  • Friday Night Fanfiction :: Please Don’t Use the Stalactite…

    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.

    In this episode, we conclude our Star Wars journey from last week: tribalTAT’s “Star Wars – Episode VII: a NUDE hope“. It just kept getting worse and worse until we hit a cliffhanger. And now we’re plummeting off that cliff into a painful abyss.

    After that, we revisit one of Friday Night Fanfiction‘s white whale fics… For a third time. Yup, it’s “Sonic in the Search for Love”! Previously another fan (thanks, DG20016!) wrote an alternate ending to that horrible story, and now OathkeeperRoxasxNamine09 does the same with “Dreams are eternal, search for the true story

    You know, we thought we were done. And then we thought we were done again. Join us for emotional whiplash and another crude adventure! (more…)

  • Wicked Anime Podcast :: Episode 094 :: Call Me Onii-san

  • State of the Empire :: Episode 25 :: The Rogue One Trailer is Unleashed

    SotE25State of the Empire is Nerdy Show’s Star Wars speculation podcast where we “look for news in Alderaan places”.

    The time has come: the Rogue One trailer is finally here! Not a teaser, not a sizzle reel, not a behind-the-scenes promo – and honest-to-God, fully-loaded trailer, Sith Lord and all. There’s a lot to take in, so let the crew of State of the Empire navigate you through the proverbial asteroid belt of what’s going on and what nuances we can glean from this sexy and revealing advertisement.

    Cynics, don’t fret; Cap, Doug, and Matt aren’t all rose colored lenses over this well-dressed Star Wars trailer. We’ve still got our heads level and our minds open. Not only do we talk Rogue One, but we also chew over the latest rumors surrounding Lord and Miller’s young Han Solo film (trilogy?) and we report our findings on Episode IX director Colin Tervorrow. With only the dubious Jurassic World and indie darling Safety Not Guaranteed under his belt, does he have the chops to put a bow on the new trilogy? New tales from Willow, new editions of The Force Awakens, and more await! (more…)

  • Friday Night Fanfiction :: Space [noun]

    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

    ITS STAR WARS DAY! Wait, no… that’s in May. It’s Rogue One trailer day! Celebrate our first substantial look at the first Star Wars spin-off movie with two naughty, dirty, gross, sexy stories in the Star Wars universe. (Let’s say it’s an “expanded” universe). First, we get a wookie gangbang in “Padme’s Galactic Tour: Kashyyyyk” by The Stingray. Next, we get an alternative to The Force Awakens with “Star Wars Episode VII – a NUDE hope” by tribalTAT. Spoiler alert: Han still dies. This time way worse. Also it involves poop.

    ENJOY. (more…)
