This was my 10th year in That URI Ram Marching Band.  We moved our practice field.  That definitely caused challenges to the usual schedule of things. 

Sadly it was Leland Brown's last performance as the voice of the Ram Marching Band.  It is going to be sad not hearing his voice during our halftime performances.

Episode 191: Story Time

Show Notes:

  1. We are all members of the same species
  2. Some more nonsense
  3. Story time with Mary Sue (aka me), it's a brand new story idea based on one tiny scene that popped into my head, you get it raw. Yes I start stories with me and Chris Hardwick but later replace the two of us because why would I have stories about Chris Hardwick!!!!

 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!

  • I'm without a computer so the episodes will be a bit bare.  I will have the talented Bentley Michaels get the Travis Richey episode sounding great!
  • This episode is dedicated to three people the world lost too soon:
    • Uncle Mike Lesieur age 67
    • Harris Wittels age 30
    • Draven Rodrigues age 17 (Laser Cat Yearbook meme)
  • This episode is a bit dark.  But I hope you find it thoughful and slightly philosophical.

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!

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

Episode 93: RIP Billy Hardwick

The PGA website posted the sad news that Hall of Fame bowler Billy Hardwick died November 16, 2013 of an apparent heart attack. I was able to meet him very briefly this year when I was in Tennessee to see his son Chris Hardwick perform. I feel like I have gotten to know him though the the stories Chis has told on the Nerdist Podcast. He clearly loved his family. He had some amazing achievements in the world of bowling. The world is poorer for loosing such a talented and passionate human being.

Let us take the time to celebrate the life of Billy Hardwick. Here is his appearance on the Nerdist podcast. He was delightful. It is a real gift to the world that Chris Hardwick recorded this intimately personal podcast with his Dad. http://www.nerdist.com/2012/06/nerdist-podcast-billy-hardwick/

This is a recent Nerdist podcast where Chris Hardwick talks about how his Mom and Dad started to talk to each other for the first time since the 1980's. It's really bitter sweet given the current news. It is comforting to know that before his death he was able to mend his relationship with Chris' Mom. http://www.nerdist.com/2013/10/nerdist-podcast-lucky-pen/

Billy Hardwick's Miller High Life Beer comercial. "My favorite tidbit about this is by far that fact that he was supposed to have lines and then take a swig, but quickly got too hammered after several takes. http://youtu.be/h_pDPhEk440

There is not much I can say that will make things easier for Chris. Just send him lots of hugs.

See the following article for Chris Hardwick's emotional and heartfelt tribute to his dad: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/11/19/chris-hardwick-billy-hardwick-goodbye_n_4302865.html?ncid=edlinkusaolp00000003&utm_content=buffer21425&utm_source=buffer&utm_medium=twitter&utm_campaign=Buffer

Lyrics to Hold On, I'm Coming:

Hold On, I'm Coming

Don't you ever, be sad
Lean on me, hen times get bad
When the day come, and you know your down
In a river of trouble, your bout to drown

Hold on, cause I'm coming

Never have to worry, because I am here
You dont need to suffer, cause I am near

Hold on cause I'm coming
Hold on, cause I'm coming
Hold on, I'm coming

Lemme hear ya'll

For satisfaction, oh, hold on
Call my name, oh, call my name yeah for quick reaction
Yeah yeah yeah yeah

Oh don't you ever,

I want you to lean on me, when times get bad,
When the day comes, and I know you been around,
In a river o trouble, you you you you about to drown

Hold on I'm coming
Hold on cause I'm coming
Hold on cause I'm coming
Hold on I'm coming

Hold on, I'm coming (here i come)
Hold on, I'm coming (take my hand)

She took the midnight train goin' anywhere

Just a city boy
Born and raised in south Detroit
He took the midnight train goin' anywhere

A singer in a smoky room
A smell of wine and cheap perfume
For a smile they can share the night
It goes on and on and on and on

Strangers waiting
Up and down the boulevard
Their shadows searching in the night
Streetlight people
Living just to find emotion
Hiding somewhere in the night

Working hard to get my fill
Everybody wants a thrill
Payin' anything to roll the dice just one more time

Some will win, some will lose
Some were born to sing the blues
Oh, the movie never ends
It goes on and on and on and on

Strangers waiting
Up and down the boulevard
Their shadows searching in the night
Streetlight people
Living just to find emotion
Hiding somewhere in the night

Don't stop believin'
Hold on to that feelin'
Streetlight people

Don't stop believin'
Hold on
Streetlight people

Don't stop believin'
Hold on to that feelin'
Streetlight people

Show Notes:

  • This week I talk about the Nerdist Industries distributed film Zero Charisma
  • Nerdist Podcast episode 418 Zero Charisma: http://www.nerdist.com/2013/10/nerdist-podcast-zero-charisma/
  • It's a flawed movie but it is a human story. It is much like the hurt lock in the sense that the main character is trying to escape the reality of his dead end existence.

Music in this podcast is performed by the University of Rhode Island Ram Marching Band under the direction of Dr. Brian Cardany. This week: Everybody Needs Somebody to Love (Opener), Louie Louie (Closer)

Singing with from 10/11/2013 (I forgot to post it).

  • This song will always remind me of my many travels to see various Nerdist and Chris Hardwick events.  It's also a really fun song to sing.  Sara Watkins was on both the Nerdist and You Made It Weird.
  • Nerdist #263: http://www.nerdist.com/2012/09/nerdist-podcast-sara-watkins/
  • You Made It Weird #162: http://www.nerdist.com/2013/06/you-made-it-weird-162-sara-watkins/

This week's song is Sara Watkin's You and MeLyrics:

I remember the night
I remember the sound I remember the light When the moon came 'round
The night flowers bloomed The air so sweet
I remember you I remember me
Central Valley sunshine
Run out of town Make your head all funny
So you stick around
Dusty roads Make dirty feet
I remember you I remember me
I remember the night I remember the sound
I remember the light
When the moon came 'round
The night flowers bloomed
The air so sweet I remember you
I remember me
Wish I knew you now
Like I knew you then
For hours I just sit at your feet And listen
When I want To feel free
I remember you I remember me
I remember the night I remember the sound
I remember the light
When the moon came 'round
The night flowers bloomed
The air so sweet I remember you I remember me
Found myself at your place
When I was out walking I could hear your piano
And I swear I could hear you sing
And the joy we shared as we tarry there
I remember you I remember me
I remember the night I remember the sound
I remember the light
When the moon came 'round
The night flowers bloomed
The air so sweet
I remember you I remember me
I remember you I remember me
I remember you

Lyrics:

I've been sitting here thinking about gravity,Around the universe reaching out and grabbing me,
It's like everything's pulling me back to you.
I've been wondering if it's unreality,
or if somebody up there is glad at me,
it's like everything's pulling me back to you.
I don't need to see it, oh no,
I just got to believe it, you know,
And I know you can believe it too,
Cause it's true.
I've been staring at the night sky wondering,
What's really keepin' me under it,
It's like everything's pulling me back to you
(uhmmm hummm)
(bah bah, bah bah bah, bah bah, bah bah bah bah bah, bah bah bah bah)
I don't need to see it, oh no,
I just got to believe it, you know,
And I know you can believe it too,

Cause it's true.

I could just my eyes and deny you,
and not see skies of blue,
but you are everywhere.
But thinking about gravity,
reaching out and grabbing me,
and pulling me back to you.

Show Notes:

  • From last week: The essence of last week's pod is the following: Give yourself a break, you are on a path of self-improvement. This path is full of hills and valleys. There are many bumps in the road so just keep going.
  • Characterize: Write three ridiculous "if-then" scenarios to strengthen decisions you've made.
  • Engineering Luck
  • Blind luck vs. Circumstantial Luck
  • Blind Luck is answering your front door to find a talking emu who brings you fortune and fame winning the lotto, having an event you didn't want to go to canceled due to bad weather
  • Circumstantial luck
  • YOU MAKE YOUR OWN LUCK
  • Characterize Write something that happened to you recently. Write one way it could be considered bad luck and one way it could be considered good luck, just to demonstrate how perception affects value. Write five "lucky" things that happened o you, then determine if they were blind luck or circumstantial luck.

Summary:

  • The New Fords Fusions are designed like a Jaguar. I love my new little recording studio.
  • Quemment of the week: How much would you spend to eat dinner with a person of your choice? Who would it be? (My answer may SHOCK)
  • Philosophical issue of the week: Love what you love--unappologically! Be respectful of things you hate. When you hate things make sure you do so in a respectful way. Just saying you hate X isn't good enough. Remember, what you hate maybe something someone loves.

  • Christmas and what it has come to mean to me. For me the holiday season is a time to decompress from the busy fall and get ready for the spring. This year it is very hard for me to be excited about Christmas. I cannot believe another year is gone. I'll save the introspection for next week's podcast.
  • Comments from Twitter: @DanBeyerle :listening to "Ho Ho Hoey" while setting up decorations and opening presents. Favorite Movie is "A Christmas Story"

So we begin with the mind. I have a bunch of revolutions to pass on to you. They might blow your mind!

  • Amazon http://www.amazon.com/Nerdist-Way-Reach-Next-Level/dp/042525318X/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1353680186&sr=1-1&keywords=nerdist+way
  • You are the warden rather than the prisoner of your emotions. - Chris Hardwick
  • The third is the Carlos Castaneda quote "We either make ourselves miserable, or we make ourselves strong. The amount of work is the same.” It only makes sense to put your energy into being happy. Making that decision only brings positive energy into your life. People like being around happy people.
  • Choose a positive attitude.
  • If you are looking for evidence to support your particular attitude, you will find it in the world. If you think the world is full of trolls, you will find them. In fact they are all you will see.
  • RPG Your Life
  • Character Tome
  • Quemment Time!
  • Today's Lesson: You deserve to be happy. More on that next week.

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

  • 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!

Episode 51b: You gotta BE!

Originally I was going to name this episode: I'm telling you guys, it's not a cult! But I listened to the Nerdist Episode "Microwave Beef." They were talking about Chris' birthday party. Jonah's go to kareoke song is "You gotta be." I have not heard this song in ages but I have no been able to keep it out of my head. So I recorded it. Yes I included it on this episode. YOU are welcome. This is my craziest episode to date. I apologize for rambling but hopefully you have fun listening!

Episode 33: Taking my talents to Germany

Taking my talents to Germany: The decision.

What's up with me? or What's Wrong with me?

  1. I'm heading to Germany from July 4-22nd.  I will be releasing podcasts when I'm there. I'll get to use my snowball mic that I've had forever.
  2. I beat Diablo 3 on normal!  W00t! Yes it took me a while but we did it! I carried the group....for once!! 

Joke of the week


Around the Pods

  1. Adam Carolla had LeVar Burton.  There wasn't much of a conversation with LaVar except for about Roots and Reading Rainbow.  They talked a bit about how he got into acting and how he got his first role in roots at the age of 19.  I hope LaVar is on Nerdist.  I would expect a more in depth conversation.  It is a mystery as to why Lavar called up Adam and told him to cut it out. Not a necessary episode if you are looking for some Lavar entertainment   
  2. Nerdist has Billy West and John Dimaggio
    1. Billy west was recently on Adam Carolla: http://www.adamcarolla.com/billy-west/ This was so funny.  The interaction between Billy and Adam is priceless.  Worth the download.
    2. Billy West was on Rob Paulsen's Talkin' Toons #19 http://robpaulsenlive.com/episode-18-of-robs-weekly-podcast-is-out/ 
    3. Billy West was on an early Nerdist #49 http://www.nerdist.com/2010/12/nerdist-podcast-49-billy-west-not-ready-for-publication-yet/
    4. John Dimaggio was on the latest Rob Paulsen's Talkin' Toons #47 http://robpaulsenlive.com/episode-47-guest-john-dimaggio/




I'll be ending with a word from Larry Miller himself.  It was good to hear from him.  The sad part is that it sounds as if he'll be out for a while.  In the mean time please please please go and subscribe the This Week with Larry Miller.  His stories are great! He is funny and delightful.  Larry, I'm glad to hear that you are doing well.  I miss you and I love you!

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.

    RIP Greg Ham of Men at Work

    The toughest part of this whole process has been the lack of feed back.  I have been trying to tweak the podcast by what I feel I like.  The problem is that I don't like listening to me.  So it is basically all shit to me.  I finally received some feed back.  The consensus is that I start off well then babble.  So this week I took a deep breath and really became the producer of my own podcast.  I hope you enjoy the results.

    Recommendations:It's a double animation recommendation week!! The hard work of both groups of people create the awesome art that is animation.  You really cannot have one without the other.  If you are an animation (cartoon and anime) junkie like me, both are well worth your time. 
      1. Rob Paulsen's Talkin' Toons http://robpaulsenlive.com/category/podcasts/

      2. Clay Kaytis' The Animation Podcast http://animationpodcast.com/
          * The guys that draw the characters. I forgot about this podcast until I started listening to Rob Paulsen's podcast. Welcome back old friend!

    Get Well Larry Miller!

    In this episode I will talk about:

    • Larry J. Miller! He was on an episode of "You Made it Weird" He also has his weekly podcast called "This Week with Larry Miller." He had a bad accident the other week. He is expected to fully recover. But they did re-post an episode this week. It is a good episode so go take a listen. But get well soon!!!!
    • My podcast is the red headed step child if Nerdist got it on with This week with Larry Miller and enjoyed a burrito afterwards. Now that's an image. Ok, this is only in my dreams but maybe one day? I'll be funny and inspirational but hopefully not bald. mmm...I'm going with silly with a touch of whimsy. Clearly I miss but...gotta keep trying.
    • It has been a tough week for everyone so I want to look at the positive stuff that happened.
    • I totally am not upset about being stood up by Nerdist for the 4th time. They did eventually reschedule but I'm really irritated. I do understand
    • Kickstarter is awesome. Both the projects I backed got funded! I donated to the Inspector Spacetime project. Also the Zack meets the Zombie book got funded!! It was tense there for a while.
    • I friended Ron Paulsen on FB. Honestly I rather he follow my twitter. I do more funny stuff there. NARF!
    • Recommendations of the week: Check out Scott Sigler on Nerdist! I've been following him on and off since 2005. If you like him then might I recommend Mark Yoshimoto Nemcoff . His stories are really cool. I would also recommend Mike Bennett "One Among the Sleepless" is soooo good!!

    I end the podcast by attempting Larry Miller's brilliant pod closer

    Thank you for listening.  Seize YOUR burrito!

    Opening and closing songs are from the 2008 URI Ram Band. Opening song is "Get it on" and closing theme is "Voodoo"

    In this episode I talk about the comedy central taping.  I got hang out with Gillian.  We saw the show twice.  Chris said hi to us.  I got a Chris Hardwick hug (tm pending).

    I also met Chloe Dystra.  I was luke warm in my description of her.  The gentlemen around us asked "Who is that hot babe."  I told them it is the game reviewer and cosplay specialist Chloe Dystra.  She is very tall.  She was wearing heels.  I was not.

    Ok, I'm hobbit sized so EVERYONE is taller than I am!!!  I get this. Nevertheless..she is very tall, young and beautiful. 

    The portable recorder I am going to order is the Zoom H4N: http://www.amazon.com/Zoom-Handy-Portable-Digital-Recorder/dp/B001QWBM62/ref=lh_ni_t

    I finally start reading from this awesome script.  It is epic.

    I'm still waiting on tickets for CH's show.  Hope's spring eternal. 

    My iTunes feed is still not fixed.  I think I will just delete and make a new on if this issue isn't resolved by next week.

    Nerdist SF Sketchfest

    New hosting site means new opening and closing music.  It's still the URI Ram Marching Band 2008.  The opener is Get It On and the closer is Voodoo.

    This week I do the following:

    1) complain about Mevio

    2) talk about Nerdist Live

    3) complain about Chris' old jokes and be thankful that he's doing a special

    I may have to red-do my podcast on iTunes.  I'll let you know if/when that happens.

    • Seating audition (I'm not last chair but I'm still playing second.  I need to practice more,)
    • 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.

    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.
