Episode 52: The Good and the Bad

In this episode I nerd out about my trip to Nashville and Memphis TN.

  • Sightseeing in Nashville
  • Shopping in Nashville including buying the pink boots because cowboy boots are cool! (Sez the Doctor!)
  • Chris Hardwick comedy set
  • JC Cope was the MC
  • Chris Killian was the "Middle" I forgot to mention that I referred to him as the "other" Chris. I also feel really bad about not buying his CD. One of these days I will remember to bring cash to the Nerdist events!
  • Super Special Awesome Welcome to the people I met in Nashville: Chris & Shannon, Glen, the family and the guys at the gas station on the way to Memphis!

Opening theme: "Get It On" performed by the 2008 University of Rhode Island Marching Band under the direction of Brian Cardany Ending Theme: "Do It Anyway" by Ben Folds Five off their album "The Sound of the Life of the Mind" available where you purchase your multimedia! Thank you for listening and reading! Remember, do not give up what you want most for what you want right now!

Welcome to the third and final installment to the Post Nerdist LA show.

  1. The Duke Spirit: http://thedukespirit.com They played two songs. The first song was The Step and The Walk off their album Neptune.  The second was the new single off their album Glorious.  The band is straight up rock.  There are lots of heavy bass and drum beat.  The lead singer reminds me a bit of Janis Joplin and Grace Slick (Jefferson Airplane/ Jefferson Starship).  The Duke Spirit is an oasis In the world of over produced pop fluff and auto tuning.

Summary:


       * Dave Hill was on Alison Rosen (the news girl for Adam Carolla) podcast, http://alisonrosen.com/2012/06/ariynbf-118-with-dave-hill/
       * Dave Hill at the Boston Improv
          * The Under Shirt
          * All in all it was a great night!  I got lost on the way home.  It was special that after 30 mins I ended up back where I started, passing the Boston Improv.  It was really special when I passed the Wilbur.  Oh memories...and not the best ones either.  I fail to understand why I get myself lost getting out of Boston. You'd think I'd have this by now.  But I have the sense direction of Ryoga Hibiki from Ranma 1/2. 
       * The Boston Improv would make a really awesome venue for Nerdist.


    Joke of the Week:  I have no idea right now.....
