My podcast explores entertainment culture (nerd, pop, ect),self improvement and philosophy with a touch of whimsy and humor.

I awkwardly express my horror, terror and anger at yet another senseless mass shooting. What the actual F*#k??? When are we going to stop people from killing people in our homes (churches, theaters, and night clubs are homes to the group of people that gather there).

 

Oh and: Yeah Hamilton!!! 💜❤️

 

I love you guys. Have an excellent!

 Show Notes:

  1. So long to the Daily Show.  The last week was bitter sweet.
  2. My brother is slowly becoming a nerdist
  3. Speaking of Nerdist, polyamory! "Hound Tall" with Moshe Keche http://nerdist.com/hound-tall-2-polyamory-with-christopher-ryan-nick-kroll-and-nikki-glaser/
  4. It's OK to love Chris Hardwick but if I persued it, then I would be a homeless cat lady.
  5. The Gist with Mike Pesca is awesome.  Go listen to his episode: http://www.slate.com/articles/podcasts/gist/2015/08/the_gist_storytelling_with_matthew_dicks_and_male_vocal_fry.html  I started to write down a small one line about my day that could be a 5 min story.  You should too!

A BIG thanks the Chris Hardwick for having the Nerdist School and Meltdown showroom.  I appologize to Jonah Ray and Kumail Nanjiani.  I was just lowering the bar for my fellow open mic-ers!

I talk about what Robin William's ment to me.  I also talk about his less popular movies "Popeye", "Hook", "What Dreams May Come", "World's Greatest Dad".  I also talk about how life is sometimes like Nietzsche's eternal return.  I'm not sure I actually said that but it was in my notes.  I was head over heels for a comedian as a child and guess what, it's happened again.  Robin Williams will forever be the standard by which I measure men. 

 

Finally, the world has never or will ever have a friend like you.  I end with his song from Aladin "Friend Like Me."  RIP Robin Williams, I'll always love you.

Did you ever write something and think about how it'll come out. In your head you sound smart and articulate. But then you record it and it's less than planned? That's this podcast. For me....#YesToAllWoman because I felt the need to edit myself. I also felt that I started to sound like I'm whining when I was trying to talk about something important to me. Show notes:

  • LASIK surgery isn't bad
  • Jim Butcher released the latest in the Dresden Files book, Skin Game
  • 2 Nerds 1 Podcast plays a zork game written by the talented Joe Harvey. Tim Church plays along and together they are incredible entertaining.
  • I talk about feminism and misogyny
  • The important points: being inclusive is better than exclusive
  • Shitting on another group doesn't elevate your group
  • Be respectful of one another
  • #YesAllWomen
  • Please support the things I love...oh and review me on itunes?

Show Notes:

  • We are all beautiful: Eva DeVirgilis is a make up artist and actress. She tells how women always apologize for being ugly. Even though she constantly tells many of the women who sit in her chair that they are beautiful, she is equally critical of herself. It's worth the 10 mins to watch! http://spillway.ca/blog/2014/05/14/we-are-all-beautiful/
  • Louie has the most amazing episode about fat girls! http://youtu.be/KFdWcNJ17YY It is so weird hearing the words in my head said out loud by someone else. I love the way the scene breaths. Louis CK really lets his episodes unfold. Nothing ever feels rushed or forced. This monologue is brilliant.
  • Pete Holmes has been killing it this week! Pete "Sherlock" holmes? Genius. Then on Thursday he has this monologue: http://youtu.be/PUeHeLIwd38
  • If you do not like you life, start telling yourself better stories.

This episode is dedicated to Helen M. Plummer aka Nonnie.  She worked at CVS. Though her relentless positivity and friendliness she became an icon at the University of Rhode Island.  Anyone who has ever shopped at the CVS near the Kingston RI campus knows the phrase "Have an excellent."  I hope wherever she is, she is having an excellent!

  • Nerdist Live & Smodcast live
  • Art House review: It is a fun movie.  If you are a fan of Chris Hardwick you'll want this movie.  If you are a fan girl/ fan boy you NEED this movie.  
  • Zombies vs. Gladiators: I want to live in a world where this movie is a thing!!!  I will start reading from this awesome script next show.
  • The ending song for the show is Shadow Rituals All-State Concert Band.  It was the song for my seating audition.

I wonder if I should call this the "I'm not Chris Hardwick's fan girl even though every podcast mentions Nerdist in some form or another."  But seriously, I have lots of fun talking about things.  I talk about the suprising number of downloads. 

 

There will be at the min of two more Nerdist Live shows.  

 

Fun Fact:  It's really Jonah that I'm after until being his fan girl became too mainstream.  ;-)

SaxyNerdist (New nickname?) heads to DC.  Yes it was my 4th live Nerdist Podcast.  I give a quick review of the show.  Lesson from the show: Chris IS half Italian and you should not piss him off.  Seriously.  Don't do it.  

 I give shout outs and do a 10 min quemment.  

If you like the quemment then pass it over to the Nerdist.

I have a week. Not much happened.....I am a top nerd on the Node.  I'm in good company! 

I'm working on my quemment for the Live Nerdist show in DC.  It has the potential to be awesome.  If I deliver it right it could be really powerful and awesome.

A great group of Nerdist!

In this episode I talk about how I humble bragged!  Albert Brooks was gracious enough to reply to my tweet and wished Chris Hardwick a happy birthday.  This is the LAST time I'm mentioning it.  I swear/promise!  

I talk about the live show.  It was awesome! I got home at 1am but it was totally worth it.

Gladstone now follows me on twitter.  I have a feeling he won't be if he ever listens to this podcast. 

New ideas for segments:

1) A verse and a chorus...i sing a verse and a chorus of my favorite songs.  I love singing and this is a way to help me find my voice....

2) Bad Acting Theater.  I read from a script posted on Amazon script.  I am looking at Gladiators vs. Zombies.  This movie needs to be made.  http://studios.amazon.com/projects/2909

Chris Hardwick had a birthday.  I did stuff.  Was it epic?  Probably not in the big picture of the universe or Mr. Hardwick's life but everyone learned an important lesson and grew as a result.

 
FYI:  http://api.ning.com/files/c1G7Az98ZPw-v1rLaFEuLZCFc9TZNeAjOHyCemfvzAYeJWFlzNb84iA5Fdj0qjswLqWqE7Cf083weM2-Hn7A-SX5G3u*F0*r/nodebirthday2.jpg

Listen to me babble on about my week and the newest social networking site node.nerdist.com 

It is currently in beta but shows a great deal of promise as well as the ability to chew up time.

Music is Tim Mnchin's Not Perfect.  Much like that title this song is less than perfection.  Who needs perfection when you got heart right?  Mmmm.....

I wrote the lyrics and sang the song.  I'm not sure it was one of my better ideas.  While I love singing I'm not sure others love hearing it.  

 

Lyrics

 

This is the Nerdist

It is a community

fulled with nice and creative people

It was started by a guy who

hosted a show called singled out

and now he #humblebrags about that hair

 

And here's the really weid part

It was really simple at the start 

but now it is a global phenomena

This is the Nerdist

and its fine

it's where we spend the vast majroity of our (free) time

it's  not perfect but it's ours

1) More about why I'm podcating

2) Like a massocist in New York I'm Nerdist Bound

3) That Ram Band

 

NOTE:  I really need to lay off the Nerdist podcast.  I'm picking up too many Hardwick-isms although to be fair they were probably Di-isms first.  I suppose I could always use the age card.  Yeah!  That excatly what I'll do.  Oh who am I kidding.  

 

Thank you for listening.
