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!

    2. Louis CK was on the BS Report.  He talked about his third season of Louie and the challenges of constantly challenging yourself.  Bil and Louis  also talked bout boxing.  I love it when people talk about things they have a great deal of passion for.  It was a delightful conversation.  Louis CK is on tour.  Get tickets only on his site! I'm seeing him in January at the  Boston Symphony Hall.

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.
