Nerdy Show

Episode 26 :: Dial-A-Dork

Posted by Hex on August 4, 2010

Dial-A-DorkTriforce Mike’s Formspring is pretty amazing – you can ask him ANYTHING there and he answers – sometimes with Internet gibberish, sometimes with profound mico-essays packed with intense geekitude.  Well, the rest of us are tired of him having all the fun, so we decided to do one better!  We invited our fans to call in and ask us anything or geek out with us about whatever comes to mind.  The call was answered!  You reached out to us, Fandom, just like a glowy E.T. finger and touched us in a way that makes a boy a man and Stephen Spielberg very rich.

Along for the whole ride we have not just the fabled Nerdy Show four, but some of our comrades in arms: Nerdy Strip writer/artist, Tony Baldini, video game correspondent, Gina Lockwood, and sci-tech correspondent Jon West - for the whole show, not just a segment.  Together we conquered many a harrowing phone call!

In this episode we discuss Nerdy Show’s secret, and not-so-secret origins – how the team formed and how Brain joined up.  Fans ask hard-hitting questions, like just how much of Red Hulk is in continuity? What kind of characters are we going to play in DC Universe Online? And when the hell is Brain returning to Dungeons & Doritos?  That plus MORE including a way-cool call-in from super-duper remixer, Klopfenpop, our first impressions of Starcraft 2, Cap’s review of Alan Wake: The Signal, and a call from Dean Wallace’s… son!?

    Yeah, I didn’t mention it during the episode, but the religion is called Naroin, and here is a link to the “scripture”:

    Oh lawdy! Take notes, Mike!

    I forgot to mention that I actually thought of something that I’d actually like to see Jeph Loeb do. Since he likes to write these kind of oddball stories with really big things happening, but doesn’t seem to follow continuity, how about this: What if… Jeph Loeb wrote What If?

    Now I’m gonna have to try and draw Triforce Mike with a pope hat.

    On that death in Australia because of no vaccines the child was 7 months old and too young to be vacccinated it was everybody else specifically the AVN (Australia vaccination network = anti vax network really but they say they are pro choice) the parents because they went public have gotten death threats. Because the AVN are insane reptile overlord conspiacy people as well.

    Excellent episo-
    OH NOES the Lawnmowerman! Let us all be silent for a minute to honour Brian and his courage in facing this threat.

    On a sidenote; Anti-vaccination campaign? The hell. I knew people had infinite potential for stupidity, but just… WoW.

  • Ghouleh

    Did not mean “WoW” as in “World of Warcraft”. Just a typo, if you’ll excuse me.

    EXCUSED! ….for now…..

    Odd, I didn’t hear Gina at all when I called in (This is Jeremy from the earlier portion btw).

    On the “Brian’s first season exploits” I believe the robot one was first (which was one of the first eps I listened to) because, and unless my memory is playing tricks on me, the Mega Man ep. was in anticipation of the then upcoming Act 2 album from the Protomen.

    By crazy coincidence, this week’s episode of Penn & Teller’s Bullshit is actually going to be about Vaccinations.
