  • Nerdy Show 219 :: Lightning Dogs: Beware the Glampire

    ep219 600THE LIGHTNING DOGS RETURN!

    Once again Nerdy Show returns to The Wasteland – a desolate future portrait of Earth where humanity is gone and the mutants that remain are lorded over by the villainous Glampire. The only righteous force left to tame the human world gone awry is the evolution of man’s best friend – The Lightning Dogs! These canine commandos’ shred through the desolate terrain on makeshift hotrods looking for answers in a world gone mad.

    We conceived Lightning Dogs by accident during an episode of Nerdy Show and ever since then we’ve been developing the concept of this animated series that never was LIVE! Our goal is to spitball this crazy idea until it’s a real thing. Tune in to hear us pitch crazy concepts and debate crazier back stories. You’ve heard us flash out our heroes, but what about the villains? In this first part of a two-part puppy pile-up we delve into the nefarious alien, Glampire and his grotesque minion Halloween Jack!

  • Friday Night Fanfiction :: Remember That Time Aku Dressed Like a Girl & Ordered Pizza?

    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.

    It’s a Nerdy Show Network crossover! We’re joined by the Derps from Derpy Show – boR and Neofaust come on to clear the air with decidedly lighter fare than our recent… ordeals.  Tonight we read a Samurai Jack fic by TurtleNinja called “Fevered Lust“, where our perverse banter inspired by the story endds up dirtier than the fic itself.  TurtleNinja gives us a sensual, honorable love story involving Tomoe and a virginal Samurai Jack.  He’s fighting an Infection (always capitalized since its probably a proprietary CW or something), and poor Tomoe assists the only waya woman shoehorned into a plot by a mediocre writer can.

  • Star Wars Celebration 2015: Full Report

    star wars celebration anaheim

    Nerdy Show‘s coverage of Star Wars Celebration Anaheim is brought to you by Consequence of Sound – if there’s a bright center to the Internet, it’s the music and film site it’s closest to. This article has been dual published on our respective sites.

    Star Wars Celebration Anaheim…

    You will never find a more devoted flock of fans and family.

    “Family” is a loaded word, but one that proved omnipresent throughout the four-day Star Wars event. At the Anaheim Convention Center, over 150,000 fans united in their love for a galaxy far, far away. Stars and creatives presided over a weekend of shocking media reveals, insightful panels, and fan events.

    This wasn’t my first trench run with Celebration. I’d attended the 2010 Orlando event, but it was nothing like this. The schism between prequel apologists and original trilogy truthers was mended, attendance had quintupled, and genuine excitement crackled in the air for creators and fans alike. It can’t be overstated: Lucasfilm’s sale to Disney changed everything. (more…)

    This year’s Star Wars Celebration was seeded with a great many secrets.

  • Friday Night Fanfiction :: Outback’s Blooming Wang Tire

    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.

    Our painful journey with Lord-Kellendros’ Kim Possible fic “Futa Hard” continues. We wrap up this soft, flimsy story that took us three hours to read what seemed to be about six minutes of actual smut, while also removing any erotic existential exemplary appeal due to consistently cascading colloquialisms categorized by awesomely abundant aural alliteration and more run-on sentences than you could shake a stick at were you to have a career in stick-shakery.

    Chances are good you’ll never get a semi again. (more…)

  • Star Wars News: Say Goodbye to Ponda Baba UPDATE!

    Ponda Baba ConundrumUPDATE: We spoke with Leland Chee, keeper of the Holocron and he has put to bed our deep fears – Ponda Baba’s name is intact. In fact, as he told us, all names of previously established characters have been kept! Ponda Baba, Saelt-Marae, Momaw Nadon, and every other background character’s names are intact, though their respective origins are still in flux. A definitive look at everything in the new canon can be seen in The Ultimate Star Wars coming in May.

    Following last years’ news the Star Wars Expanded Universe had been effectively dissolved, the question on many fans’ minds was, “if so much of what I know no longer exists, what still does?”  In an episode of our Star Wars speculation podcast, State of the Empire, host Matt Spill gave this strange phenomena a name: The Ponda Baba Conundrum.

    letter-44-main

    Imagine if House of Cards made beautiful love-babies with Independence Day. That’s right: Cold-hearted political schemes intermingling with the threat of alien invasion. Welcome to the troubled and awesome world of Charles Soule’s Letter 44.

    The graphic novel opens with newly inaugurated president, Stephen Henry Blades, receiving a letter from outgoing president Francis T. Carroll. In this letter, President Carroll defends going to war in the Middle East, stating it was a means to increase military size and strength in preparation for a greater threat.
