Nerd doesn't describe the half of it.

What is the term nerds call people who they view as nerds?

JoeSC said...

Uber-nerd???

Chris JC said...

Hi guys.

Have the soundtrack to the Stallone flick Over the Top.

It has Giorgio Moroder, Kenny Loggins and, er, Frank Stallone.

Chris JC said...

I don't know if my eyes are just far inferior to all other humans, but I find this version of the Blast Door Map easier to follow.

Jordan said...

PETA is really stupid.

memphish said...

Bon Voyage!

Holli

Chris JC said...

Good journey!

Stephanie said...

Who's leaving? Where are they going?

Stephanie said...

Holli's going to Vegas. I'm so jealous. I wish I were going somewhere. Anywhere. I am going to Blountsville tomorrow. I guess I should be satisfied with that.

andrew. said...

- Blountsville? where The Heart Of Dixie & Main Street meet?

- i listened to a bunch of movie podcasts over my last couple of commutes. Apparently, i'm alone in being amused by Land Of The Lost. oh well.

Stephanie said...

Yeah. Blountsville. I hear the waterpark there is nice. And reasonably priced.

Listen to Alirio and myself talk about the most awesome SYTYCD.

Jordan said...

Yeah Andrew. I was surprised when you said you enjoyed LOTL. Seeing as how it got like a 28% on Rotten Tomatoes. I hadn't anything positive about it anywhere. Maybe they're all wrong? lol.

For anyone who is mildly interested/amused - The aftermath/injuries of Bret Michaels post-Tonys

PalmerEldritch said...

saw UP last night. fantastic movie! good music, good visuals, good story, good action, good visuals, bad dogs.

they'd freak little kids out.

what a horribly advertised movie. they don't let you know about anything other than an old dude and a kid take off in a house tied to balloons. the movie is much, much cooler than that.

prolly my favorite Pixar flick. but then again, i'm not a huge Pixar fan.

oh. and nerds call nerdier nerds "fanboys." :)


KABLAMO!

PalmerEldritch said...

LOST + Top Chef = jokes about not wearing pants in the kitchen

KABLAMO!

Jordan said...

Right Palmer. That's it.

Herlihy said...

i get called a fanboy all the time :(

So what if i got a little bit too excited for the new legend of zelda that was instigated by one single piece of concept art... :/

Also, A Bug's Life is totally my favourite Pixar film. Everyone forgets about that one. Close second has to be Monsters, Inc. But that could be totally ruined.

Herlihy said...

Carrie Prejean is a total douché

Jordan said...

Speaking of douches, Conan O'Brien has been killing me with his Spencer Pratt jokes of late.

When doing the "in the year 2000" future fortelling bit:

"Spencer Pratt will win the show I'm a celebrity, get me outta here", when it is renamed, "I'm a douche bag, leave me here."

Jordan said...

The best part is when he sets up the joke and simply says, "Spencer Pratt", the crowd boo's before he even gets to the joke.

Seriously, that guy is the dictionary definition of douche bag. I have never watched a minute of The Hills besides clips from The Soup, and I hate the guy more than anybody on Earth, I think.

Jordan said...

So I was curious how many million results who show up for a google search of "Spencer Pratt Douche". Oh, what a horrific mistake on my part. Because I found this. King of all douches rapping about being white and rich, very badly.

Sorry for posting it. But misery loves company. And I don't wanna be alone on this one.

Jordan said...

I thought he couldn't get any douchier. But "rapping" about sun bathing and twittering takes the cake.

Jordan said...

Phil Spector has been wearing a wig all this time? Whaaaa? WNow who would have ever guessed that?

Herlihy said...

My thoughts on Spencer Pratt in one easy, bite-sized chunk:

"PEOPLE WHO ARE BLONDE SHOULDN'T GROW BEARDS"

Holder said...

I like Spencer Pratt. Yeah, I said it. He is good entertainment. Since I watch tv 24/7, I've been dvr-ing "I'm a Celebrity", and Speidi is the only entertaining thing about that show. Well, I also was interested in hearing Blagoyavich's? wife talk about her situation. Anyways, Spencer will hit a muhfucka and I respect that about him. We have that and bad facial hair in common.

Stephanie said...

I refuse to even talk about those people.

Jordan said...

Good for you Steph. I freaking hate that they exist. And the fact that even when I try to ignore them, I come across them enough to loathe them as much as I do.

Holder, I don't know what to say man. I think I just may have lost all respect for ya bro. lol.

Jordan said...

Hey. What the hell ever happened to the Chins book?

Holder said...

I mean...I don't think he has any actual talent or anything...I just think the guy fun to watch. Screw you guys, I'm going home.

Jordan said...

Bueller...

mb said...

de blogspot - she is broke

andrew. said...

- poor blogspot, not enough crazy island juice to keep you going.

- slow movie weekend too.
* Pelham 1,2 3 - please see the original. It is awesome. I have no desire to see this
* Moon - looking forward to this but it probably won't get to Pittsburgh for a while
* Imagine That - not a good sign that i have absolutely never heard about this movie starring Eddie Murphy and Thomas Haden Church until just this second. Didn't a movie exactly like this about a dad suffering through his kid's imagination come out a month ago?

or Whovians (Doctor Who)

Jordan said...

So has anybody seen the season premieres of Weeds or Nurse Jackie? I'm not hearing good things about this season of Weeds. Not good seeing as how I've been a bit "meh" on the past couple seasons.

As for Nurse Jackie. The premise doesn't really pull me in. But Edie Falco is great. And what I've read so far seems to be mostly positive. Still not sure if I'm down, however.

I'm currently watching Mad Men. Bout halfway through season 1. Good show. Very compelling. Most here have already watched it all, so I will keep my commentary short and to the point. Christina Hendricks and January Jones, grrrrrrrrow! ;)

Jordan said...

So what's nerdier? A Trekkie or a Whovian?

Herlihy said...

...Trekkies obviously.

Jordan said...

...I'm not so sure.

Herlihy said...

It's so obvious though.

What's cooler? a guy who changes into other men when he dies and has his own time machine and picks up young girls (...and bonnie tyler) or some dude with weird eyebrows, a bowl haircut and freaky ears...

Herlihy said...

Although, i must concede, the term "whovian" is horrific. I much prefer the more succinct "person-who-likes-Doctor-Who"

Jordan said...

I dunno. I think you're blinded by bias. To non-whovians, the whole things comes off very geeky. And also part of the equation (as is with Trek) is the level of fandom most of it's fans exhibit. Doesn't help any. lol. And just for the record, I'm not knocking it. I've never watched a single minute (and barely any Trek), so I can't judge. Just giving my bystander's perspective.

Herlihy said...

Meh, i'm not bothered by it at all. I've got friends who mock me because i like Lost.

Any facet of sci-fi is going to give off the impression of nerdery.

Stephanie said...

It seems like if you like sci-fi, you feel extremely passionate about sci-fi. Therefor, folks think you are a nerd.

The King of Comedy is bizarre.

Chris JC said...

Isn't Eddie Murphy film the one by Chris Matheson and Ed Solomon of Bill & Ted fame? Why am I even asking? I'll look it up.

I don't recall The Doctor ever picking up Bonnie Tyler. Do you mean the horrific Bonnie Langford?

Stephanie said...

Ryan still has the literal Total Eclipse video on the brain.

scrdmnkydst said...

tyler, langford. same thing.

PalmerEldritch said...

they ended up not being on my plane, but i was just in Dulles International Airport waiting around at the same gate as two professional wrestlers and a priest while guarding a helmet sized clay pot for some teeny bopper.

but now i'm back and can spend all day blogspotting. what's up, internetica?

scrdmnkydst said...

i'm getting drunk!

i also changed my name and made a blog post.

today has been productive.

welsh people are silly.

Jordan said...

Palmer, What was that all about? Crazy stuff. How was the business trip? Where'd you go again?

Congrats to Andrew and his spoiled sports city of Pittsburgh, for the Penguins big game 7 win on the road. Even though Andrew doesn't like hockey. I just wanted to mention how jealous I am that like Boston a couple years ago, Pitt has won multiple titles. Where as Seattle hasn't won shit since before I was born.

Jordan said...

Wait! What am I talking about! The University of Washington women just won the softball world series! Suck it bitches! lol.

Anybody want to guess what Ryan's new screen name, scrdmnkydst, means?

I'm going with Sacred Monkey Dust.

Chris JC said...

That's how I've always read it.

From now on, Blogspot, I shall only be using the name Ryan.

Holder said...

Jordan...is that Jessica Biel? Have you seen that clip where she does the stripper thing in her new movie? Her ass is amazing.

On a totally different note, it is definitely sacred monkey dust.

Stephanie said...

That's Evie catching a chip in her mouth, I think.

Palmer, tell us all about your trip. I'll tell you about mine. Blountsville is a cute, little town with a Frosty Freeze and a kick-ass water park in the middle of a cow pasture. Isn't that all you need?

Jordan said...

WRONG STEPH. Holder was right. It's Jessica Biel doing the hottest potato chip trick I've ever seen.

andrew. said...

- i still don't like hockey, but i'm happy for Pittsburgh. i was a little bit of a scrooge about it yesterday and now i'm feeling guilty.

- i just watched Tyson, the documentary. i know my opinion on movies is a little suspect at the moment but i liked it. It was long, but the extended run time helped push through the sort of preconceived fluff piece you'd expect and started to really show the complex, flawed, conflicted human being. I kept thinking about his scenes in The Hangover, which are some of that movie's best, while watching this.

- Frosty Freeze sounds really good right now.

PalmerEldritch said...

holder, you had me at stripper.

i was in Herndon, Virginia for a week doing some training for work. i picked a hotel right next to the building i was training in which seemed like a good idea except that i ended up having to cross six lanes of traffic twice a day without the aid of crosswalks.

crosswalks are apparently taboo in Herndon because it took me five days to find one (on the other side of town).

"Red Hot & Blue" was my favorite place to eat cuz you can get a pulled pork sandwich and a side of ribs for about $10. good stuff!

the ladyfriend flew down on thursday and then on friday we scoped out the White House, the Capitol Building, the Washington Monument, and whatnot in DC. basically, i was just looking for places featured in Fallout 3...

Jordan said...

Nice P. Sounds fun. The stuff besides crossing the 6 lanes of traffic, that is. I'd like to visit DC at some point.

Andrew, You don't need to worry about recommending Tyson. It's being generally praised by critics for the most part. I just looked, and it has an 86% on Rotten Tomatoes. I'd like it to see it. Tyson is a very interesting person and has a very unique perspective on life, thanks to his experiences. I've listened to a couple interviews in the past. And even though he isn't the most scholarly individual, he has learned some life lessons from his fast rise and fall that are interesting to hear reflected on.

I've been marathon style watching Mad Men the past couple days. It sure makes me want to travel back in time and live in that period. Just seems so cool. And the lack of political correctness is really refreshing.

Stephanie said...

Tyson doesn't interest me in the least. He has kids all over the place that he doesn't have anything to do with. Not to mention his abusive past. Wow. How judgmental am I?

scrdmnkydst said...

Oh, yeah, it stands for Sacred Monkey Dust. It's the same as my twitter name y'see. I changed it from Herlihy because the guy who i stole it from has a new band an they're really not very good, so i changed it.

Call me whatever you want tho. I don't really mind, even if it is profanity.

Holder said...

I hate to be "that guy" but didn't I see that Kim and Aimee got together for a podcast a week or two ago? Are we gonna get to hear it? No rush, just curious.

mb said...

Well, until Andrew said that about Tyson I was 100% not interested. Now I'm curious. It's going to have to be a damn compelling narrative to even come close to breaking my opinion of him as a talented freak. But I imagine that's precisely one of its goals.
I will say, I do now have sympathy for him (as a father) for losing his daughter.

andrew. said...

- don't want to oversell Tyson. It's shot on video, and other than some archived news/fight footage, it's just talking head shots, so it's more of a rental/small screen experience. It's no "When We Were Kings." But i did enjoy it. Mike Tyson is just an interesting specimen of humanity, a big ball of contradictions who won't let you sum him up, villify him or make him into a completely sympathetic character. I could not tell you who has been the heavy weight champion in the last 5 years or so, but Tyson really is sort of my generation's Ali.

- I tried to do the potato product trick, but it's just not as sexy with a cool ranch dorrito chip (or if you're not Jessica Biel)

- New True Blood tonight! Has anyone read the books? Since the show has deviated from the source material, i'm interested in checking them out, but i don't want to spoil this season at all.

- Listened to the SYTYCD episode of Confessions Of An Internet Addict on my way to work this morning. Good job Alirio & Stephanie. Strangely, the show was mostly about Buffy though! ;)

Mir said...

Glad to see the blogspot blowin up during the hiatus.

Is scrdmnkydst Herlihy? I think I'm gonna continue to refer to you as Herlihy bro. I can't even read the other name (guessing that was intended).

scrdmnkydst said...

...or you could go down that rebellious and roguish route by calling me by my real name?

JoeSC said...

On the subject of Tyson, for those who haven't seen it, here's the greatest Tyson interview EVER!!!

He was pretty nimble for a guy with a broken back!

BTW, just got back from watching "The Hangover." I liked it a lot, but I think there was too much hype the last 2 weeks because it wasn't as funny as I was expecting.

Ed Helms from "The Office" was fucking hilarious, though. Best part of the movie by far!

PalmerEldritch said...

ernie and bert: On a Boat

NSFW lyrics.

Jordan said...

"Strangely, the show was mostly about Buffy though! ;)"

How shocking. lol.

Dirty kablammo!

The funny thing is I edited out most of the Buffy talk. There were tons more.

PalmerEldritch said...

what's up, blogspotica? anything interesting going on?

nothing much going on here either.

anyone been prepping for Kim's rewatch of Season 1?

Chris JC said...

Hey, to pass the time why not try THIS Funny or Die UK video starring two comedy couples, Will Arnett and Amy Poehler & Peter Serafinowicz (Look Around You, Shaun of the Dead etc) and his missus Sarah Alexander (Coupling).

It's not genius but might raise a smirk.

PalmerEldritch said...

that was hilarious.

also, didnt know that Mr Serafinowicz was dating/married to Sarah Alexander.

well done, sir!

mb said...

lmao! good stuff chris.

and while we're in a linking mood,
poking around funny or die UK - I find Darth Vader humor

Jordan said...

The greatest alarm clock ever!
