    shirt banner

    It’s been a while since we’ve debuted new t-shirts here on Nerdy Show – years in fact! Well, we’re making up for lost time. How does nine new shirts sound?

    Yes, fight off the cold and pesky crumbs in style! With these snazzy t-shirts you can rep your favorite podcasts while rocking amazing artwork, a slick logo, or a cool in-joke for folks in the know. How are we able to launch so many new shirts? Our old pals at Amazon launched a new program called Merch that offers super high-quality shirts printed on demand and sent directly to you. We were skeptical, but we checked them out and the quality of these prints is astounding.

    So what’s new? We’ve got our geek amalgam Nerdy Show Network logo, shirts for every party member of Dungeons & Doritos with new art by Tony as well as his art from the episode “Run Away”, and an old school design Tony and Mike cooked up for PikaThor of the mighty Pokévengers! Plus for the first time ever we’re able to offer fem-cut shirts in addition to the unisex tees. Youth shirts too (it’s not advisable to let your kids listen to D&D). Check out all the new designs below or head to our new shirt page for the ever-growing catalog. (more…)

  • Music To Listen To: Walter Sickert and The Army of Broken Toys

    Army of Broken Toys - Liza Voll Photography

    Lauren Furze is co-station manager on our streaming music station, Nerdy.FM. She also reviews the latest records from the multi-faceted Nerd Music genre and publishes her own tunes on her website, TheFifthSister, where this article was first published.

    I love finding new music to listen to and one band that really has taken my notice lately is SteamCRUNK act Walter Sickert and the Army of Broken Toys.

    I was introduced to them when their songs were added into rotation on Nerdy.FM and I have to say these guys are truly unique. “SteamCRUNK” does a fair amount to suggest tonally what you’re in for, but think of a blend of Abney Park and early Steam Powered Giraffe with a dash of experiment thrown in. Their music is a precarious balance of beauty and restrained chaos. They seemlessly blend styles we’ve come to associate with the steampunk genre but add flare of blues, indie, cabaret, circus, gypsy and so much more. (more…)

  • VIDEO PREMIERE :: Chamber Band’s “In the Colosseum”

    The Nerdy Show Network is proud to premiere a brand new video from Chamber Band!

    Last month, the nerdy art rockers unveiled their sophomore album, Careers, and subsequently rocked our world with twelve tracks of heartrending adventure. But that wasn’t enough – the fans wanted BLOOD. Well, now you have it. In the video for their cover of Tom Waits’ “In the Colosseum” the band take on the roles of Snub Hub assassins and do the dirty work of a bullied young man with vengeance on his mind. Chamber Band does triple duty portraying not just the killers but also the hipster jocks and latte-swilling yuppies that just wanna keep a young man down. (more…)

  • Nerdy Show 241 :: Microsode: Monster Hunter

    ep241Ah, the thrill of the hunt. In this listener-requested Microsode the Nerdy Show crew explores the kill or be killed world of the game series Monster Hunter. Whip up some paintballs and pack a whetstone – there’s purple dinosaurs to be slain.

    Join Cap, Brandon, Jonathan and Andrew from Wicked Anime, and Briggs and Wall from Ghostbusters: Resurrection as they roast meat (so tasty!) and share their feels on the wild hunt. Some of them are completely new to the series and need an introduction to what’s made these games an international phenomena; decidedly different from your Digimons and your Pokémons. Others are seasoned Monster Hunter veterans with many a monster head mounted on their wall. And then there’s Brandon, who’s sassy from gin and ready to vent on why he can’t stand the games.

    Does he have a point, or does he just need to “get good”? Thanks to Nerdy Show supporter, Korrik, you’re about to find out. (more…)

  • Graphic Novel Review: The Puma Blues: The Complete Saga

    the puma blues banner

    The Breakdown: The Puma Blues – an environmental sci-fi that rocked the indie comics scene of the 80s has been collected and completed for the first time. From the minds of prolific Ninja Turtles author, Steve Murphy, and famed Sandman artist, Michael Zulli.

    Elevator Pitch: Transmetropolitan meets Do Androids Dream Of Electric Sheep, liberally dipped in the grittier side of the 1980s and paired with John Audubon-style nature art.

    The Verdict: The Puma Blues is the one of the best indie comics you’ve probably never heard of. But you know who has? Alan Moore, Neil Gaiman, Peter Laird, and Dave Sim, all of whom have been quoted singing the praises of Puma. That should be enough information to make you order a dozen copies immediately. The book is bleak, strange, a bit dated, and at times about as subtle as a kick to the groin from a Dead Kennedys fan, but undeniably earnest and disturbingly prescient. It’s not hard to see why so many prominent names in comics are big fans. Puma is must-have piece for lovers of obscure pop-culture, artsier comics, and anyone with a streak of punk rock in their soul. (more…)

  • Friday Night Fanfiction :: Propalix: Is It The Right Drug For You?

    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.

    Join the FNF crew, with special guests, Nerdy Show‘s Tony Baldini and soundtrack composer Jeff Ball! They help us on our quest to read two connected stories by fanfic author baratron set in the wonderful land of The Elder Scrolls, specifically Oblivion. Join us for some ear-nibbling, rim-jobbing good fun!

    The story? Martin Septim, illegitimate son of Emperor Uriel Septim, and O.C. Alix de Feu are bumping their donguses together. That’s basically it. There’s some attempt at plot (very good attempt in fact), and this fanfic actually used words properly and some words that we didn’t even know! THE TABLES HAVE TURNED! FANFIC IS TEACHING US THINGS! PLEASE HELP!

    The two tales, “Taking the Nine in Vain” and “Defiling the Emperor” definitely contain some main quest spoilers, so read on with caution if you are one of the three people who have yet to play through the game. (more…)

    Join Cap, Brandon, Jonathan and Andrew from Wicked Anime, and Briggs and Wall from Ghostbusters: Resurrection as we recollect on the titles of our misspent youth in 90s arcades – from classic titles to the most obscure cabinets we can remember. Hear our triumphs in those darkened, hallowed grounds as well as our greatest defeats. Then it’s on to that special subset of the arcade that made its way to the home console: fighting games. What’s the difference between fighting games, beat ’em ups, and sports titles? What are our favorite games and who are our mains? And what are some of the weirdest early 90s fighters we can remember?

  • Friday Night Fanfiction :: Futanari Ferrari Sex Drive

    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.

    Well, we knew we’d have to go back to the Futa, and back to the Final Fantasy, and this time it’s been wound together tighter than a housewife’s sex knot. “Final Futanari XIII” by Kid delivers exactly what it’s title implies.

    After that, we dip into Tim Burton’s Hot Topic-ified IP, The Nightmare Before Christmas in “Steamy Kitchen” by TheTicketCollector. It honestly could have been way worse, but it was still pretty uncomfortable. (more…)

    ep239Every other week, The Nerdy Show Network’s flagship podcast unloads on the latest geek news and happenings!

    Glamour, glitter, fashion, and debatable Internet notoriety: Nerdy Show, Nerdy Show is our name. We might not have super-advanced computers capable of projecting realistic holograms from wearable microprojectors, but dammit we’ve got opinions about people who do.

    And that’s not even remotely all! We share our hands-on feels about Metal Gear Solid V and Guitar Hero Live – both setting baffling new precedents in gaming.
