  Thu. 3/17/11 6:07am Chuck:

I went to high school with meatheads like that, Dave!
  Thu. 3/17/11 6:08am Meghan:

We all did Chuck!
  Thu. 3/17/11 6:08am Dave B:

I think everyone had a few meatheads

Where were these nerds grwoing up?

http://hangzhi.files.wordpress.com/2009/09/hot_nerd.jpg
  Thu. 3/17/11 6:09am Trixie:

Freak out with your geek out, yo.
  Thu. 3/17/11 6:09am Dave B:

grwoing = grrowing. Me need coffee!
  Thu. 3/17/11 6:10am Chuck:

Not anywhere near me, DB! I would have remembered!
  Thu. 3/17/11 6:11am Meghan:

*giggles* Dave your correction is STILL wrong! ha!
  Thu. 3/17/11 6:11am Chuck:

Devo was the ultimate nerd group...
  Thu. 3/17/11 6:12am Dave B:

feck!

  Thu. 3/17/11 6:12am Trixie:

I gave this album to an autistic kid and he loved it.
  Thu. 3/17/11 6:14am Chuck:

Don't suppose there's any Irish nerd songs, are there Meg?
  Thu. 3/17/11 6:14am Meghan:

Not that I know of.....
  Thu. 3/17/11 6:15am matti - tel aviv:

Love your show
  Thu. 3/17/11 6:15am Meghan:

Awww, thanks Matti!
  Thu. 3/17/11 6:16am Dave B:

Wow - the Waitresses...

Set the W.A.B.A.C. machine Sherman!
  Thu. 3/17/11 6:16am Rob from Maryland:

Nerd #51 checking in. Good morning everyone.
  Thu. 3/17/11 6:18am Meghan:

Trixie.... I could see Devo going over well with autistic kids!
Morning Nerd #51! hehe
  Thu. 3/17/11 6:18am Chuck:

Did you get the songs I sent, Meghan? Sorry for the late entry...
  Thu. 3/17/11 6:19am Dave B:

This Aquabats song is cracking me up


And just to clarify:
http://x52.xanga.com/8bcf26f308530253585451/z201517451.jpg
  Thu. 3/17/11 6:19am Chuck:

And where's Elwyn? This was his theme wasn't it?
  Thu. 3/17/11 6:20am Meghan:

I got it, but I was already at the concert already!
  Thu. 3/17/11 6:21am Chuck:

See I am a Geek, Dave!
How was the show, Meg?
  Thu. 3/17/11 6:22am Nick the Bard:

If I was REALLY awake this morning, I would've brought a gallon of Battery Acid, but I didn't have a gallon jug available :/
  Thu. 3/17/11 6:23am Meghan:

It is Elwyn's theme.... where is he?! The concerts were great! Two in a row!
  Thu. 3/17/11 6:23am Nick the Bard:

Then again, Rusty Armor would've been better, but, gah, that stuff's kind of expensive to make.
  Thu. 3/17/11 6:24am Dave B:

I'm off to the Pogues tonight!

And Elwyn better be out getting fruitcups, dammit!
  Thu. 3/17/11 6:26am Meghan:

The Pogues are amazing. You'll have a blast! If you bring a crutch, you can get special seating!
  Thu. 3/17/11 6:27am Trixie:

A fine show to wake up to.
  Thu. 3/17/11 6:28am Chuck:

Never mind the special seating. Do they have BEER!
  Thu. 3/17/11 6:29am Meghan:

Chuck.... that is just silly talk. They have a guy walking around selling Guinness
  Thu. 3/17/11 6:29am Dave B:

I wonder if a shillelagh would do?

and considering the week you had, I gotta give ya props for pulling this theme off.

You have my blessing to give Elwyn a good ribbing.
  Thu. 3/17/11 6:29am Rob from Maryland:

I saw the Pogues in the mid 80s. It was at a new wave club and it wasn't sold out. I stood near the back with the two brave middle-aged folkies who attended. Sort of keeping them company.
  Thu. 3/17/11 6:31am Dave B:

Hey Nick the Bard!
  Thu. 3/17/11 6:34am Trixie:

A fine choice of co-host.
  Thu. 3/17/11 6:34am Chuck:

Jeez, I remember playing D&D back in 1976...
  Thu. 3/17/11 6:35am Dave B:

Lemme check, today was payday.....


nope. sorry
  Thu. 3/17/11 6:38am Chuck:

This song is too funny! Whistling in a song is geeky....
  Thu. 3/17/11 6:40am Meghan:

Dave I had less than a week! I had literally 2.5 days!
  Thu. 3/17/11 6:40am Dave B:

I'm bummed that "Shoot the Freak" got shutdown.
  Thu. 3/17/11 6:42am Meghan:

It did? Man. I hate that Coney Island is getting a face lift.
  Thu. 3/17/11 6:44am pierre:

Bonjour Meghan !
Great idea for a theme.
Did Bosco wear glasses today to fit the theme?
  Thu. 3/17/11 6:45am Anthony:

Man, I make a call for fifteen minutes and miss Weezer, Weird Al and Danger Doom.
  Thu. 3/17/11 6:46am Meghan:

He left his glasses strap at home..... he forgot!

Ha! Sorry Anthony! this is why you can't make phone calls during show!
  Thu. 3/17/11 6:48am Dave B:

@Anthony - there's always the archives....

and for your listeners in Japan, here's the near equivalent:

  Thu. 3/17/11 6:51am Dave B:

HAHAHAHAHA!

Thanks for this one Megan (Crumbsuckers)
  Thu. 3/17/11 6:52am Meghan:

It worked well with the Descendents.....
  Thu. 3/17/11 6:53am Dave B:

I need to remaster that cassette before it disintegrates... was recorded in 1983...
  Thu. 3/17/11 6:58am Chuck:

Oh, Pinchy! Num-num!
  Thu. 3/17/11 6:59am Dave B:

YAY!
  Thu. 3/17/11 7:00am Dan B From Upstate:

Starting to listen just as Doctorin' The Tardis starts? Today will be a good day.
  Thu. 3/17/11 7:00am Chuck:

Rush is always listenable! They're the band for music geeks....
  Thu. 3/17/11 7:01am Trixie:

Just hook it to my veins!!!
  Thu. 3/17/11 7:01am hank:

wow..
  Thu. 3/17/11 7:03am Chuck:

And the new season of "Doctor Who" starts the middle of next month...
  Thu. 3/17/11 7:03am Nick the Bard:

Dr. Who, one of the things I still havn't started on and have no idea when it'll happen
  Thu. 3/17/11 7:04am Dave B:

I wasn't upset at losing the bidding war. In fact it was more of a shill to get people to pledge...

Still...

\m/_RU(BBI)SH!_\m/
  Thu. 3/17/11 7:05am Dave B:

and where the HELLWYN is Elwyn?!?!?!?!
  Thu. 3/17/11 7:06am Meghan:

Seriously! Where is he?! It's HIS bloody theme!
  Thu. 3/17/11 7:07am Dave B:

  Thu. 3/17/11 7:07am Chuck:

Good question!
  Thu. 3/17/11 7:08am Anthony:

Oh man Doctorin' The Tardis ruled.
  Thu. 3/17/11 7:10am Dave B:

That image above is for the RotN Talent Show...
  Thu. 3/17/11 7:13am Chuck:

Stan Lee!
  Thu. 3/17/11 7:14am Dan B From Upstate:

I'm sure this Stan Lee narrated bit is a million times better than the Spider Man broadway show.
  Thu. 3/17/11 7:15am eric:

Morning! Getting to the nerd party late today!
  Thu. 3/17/11 7:15am Anthony:

Like you weren't killing it already with this show, you throw in some Stan Lee/Peter Parker narration to, what, prove a point? You win, don't worry.
  Thu. 3/17/11 7:16am Meghan:

The images on the back of the CD are amazing.....

Morning Eric!
  Thu. 3/17/11 7:16am Anthony:

  Thu. 3/17/11 7:16am Dave B:

@Dan B - it was. A friend had a spare ticket and I will admit that I went. What a pile of poop...
  Thu. 3/17/11 7:17am eric:

Sometimes I'm a geek, a lot of the time I'm a nerd, but I'm never a dork.
  Thu. 3/17/11 7:17am Dan B From Upstate:

Dave - At least it was a spare ticket. I couldn't imagine paying for it.
  Thu. 3/17/11 7:20am Dave B:

@ Meghan - one for the chamber

  Thu. 3/17/11 7:21am Meghan:

The most expensive flop ever made....
  Thu. 3/17/11 7:21am Trixie:

When I first saw these guys in concert at Ozzfest I thought they were called Powerbar 5000.
  Thu. 3/17/11 7:21am Dave B:

@Trixie - i just LOL'd
  Thu. 3/17/11 7:23am Trixie:

@Dave B: You're welcome.
  Thu. 3/17/11 7:24am Elwyn:

Hey everyone!

I'm waiting at a bus stop to go home... and a mentally-ill guy is trying to have a conversation with me.

Gee I want to go home!
  Thu. 3/17/11 7:26am Dave B:

ELWYN!

and for the park attendees, here's that back cover of Spidey:

  Thu. 3/17/11 7:37am Dan B From Upstate:

That at-at caddy is a thing of beauty.
  Thu. 3/17/11 7:39am Chuck:

Easily the funniest set you've ever put together, Meg!
  Thu. 3/17/11 7:41am Binky:

Not as great as I wanted but http://www.collegehumor.com/video:1949406
  Thu. 3/17/11 7:41am Elwyn:

Dang! Bus is still late and iPhone is almost out of battery! I'm looking forward to looking up all the crazy links from Brady.

@Brady: I challenge you to find a picture of the most obese stormtrooper.
  Thu. 3/17/11 7:41am Trixie:

I sang this while carolling at school last year. tee-hee
  Thu. 3/17/11 7:43am Meghan:

ha! did you get the solo of saying- R2, I love you!
  Thu. 3/17/11 7:43am Dave B:

@Elwyn - consider it done!

  Thu. 3/17/11 7:44am Chuck:

Well, you asked for it Elwyn! LOL!
  Thu. 3/17/11 7:45am Trixie:

@Meghan: Yup. Did the whole thing solo. I prefer the Brian Dewan version.
  Thu. 3/17/11 7:48am Dave B:

wow.... this set is insane...
  Thu. 3/17/11 7:52am Chuck:

Scary. I've been to a Star Trek Convention. In 1975!
  Thu. 3/17/11 7:53am Dan B From Upstate:

I know it's not the point of the sketch, but hearing this makes me miss Phil Hartman.
  Thu. 3/17/11 7:54am Meghan:

Dan I said the SAME thing when I first listened to this.....
  Thu. 3/17/11 7:57am Dave B:

The Shat is where it's at...
  Thu. 3/17/11 7:57am Trixie:

ACK! Wookie porn!
  Thu. 3/17/11 7:58am DF:

I have never seen Star Wars either
  Thu. 3/17/11 8:01am Dan B From Upstate:

Nerdy week, actually. Monday was pi day (3/14). I celebrated by... eating some pie.
  Thu. 3/17/11 8:02am Elwyn:

OK. I'm finally home.

I like the idea of Wookie porn!
  Thu. 3/17/11 8:03am TH:

Elwyn: Then seek out the Star Wars Holiday Special. I think google video has it
  Thu. 3/17/11 8:04am Dave B:

@TH - you should add the copyright symbol to the end of your screen name...
:-)
  Thu. 3/17/11 8:05am Elwyn:

@TH: It's funny you mention the SWHS.
I had a friend who tape recorded the original/only time it was played on Australian TV. With his brother, we digitized a copy. :-)
Now that guy, Curtis Saxton, is in/famous within fandom for his notorious Star Wars Technical Commentaries website (and proposing the Endor Holocaust theory and overturning the original believe that super star destroyers are only 5 times larger than normal ones) and he wrote some of the Star Wars Incredible Cross Section books.
  Thu. 3/17/11 8:06am Dan B From Upstate:

Science!

  Thu. 3/17/11 8:06am Meghan:

oh very true Dan! Monday was Pi day!
  Thu. 3/17/11 8:07am Dave B:

@Elwyn - put a copy up on the dropbox...
  Thu. 3/17/11 8:08am Trixie:

Play MiSTie for me -- and you did! Thank you.
  Thu. 3/17/11 8:08am Parq:

Still remember the original release of "Blinded Me" near the end of 1982. Damn, that was a good time for music! Hi, Miss Meg; hi, Bard.
  Thu. 3/17/11 8:08am Dave B:

and I recently downloaded the entire MST3K collection...
  Thu. 3/17/11 8:10am Elwyn:

@Dave: There's copies on BitTorrent! What we really need is for Lucas to authorize the Special Edition of the Holiday Special.
  Thu. 3/17/11 8:10am annie:

tom!!!!
  Thu. 3/17/11 8:10am catpatz:

fantastic show meghan
  Thu. 3/17/11 8:10am Dan B From Upstate:

There were some great songs on MST3K that could fit a science/nerd theme. One that jumps out at me is the Sodium song.
  Thu. 3/17/11 8:11am Meghan:

Thanks Catpatz!
  Thu. 3/17/11 8:12am Dave B:

@Dan B Yeah, I just realized that collection has all those songs too! Hooray for my library. Boo for not getting them to Meghan in time...
  Thu. 3/17/11 8:12am Trixie:

@Dave B: Where did you download the MST episodes?
  Thu. 3/17/11 8:13am Meghan:

Boo Dave.... boo!
  Thu. 3/17/11 8:14am Dan B From Upstate:

Trixie is asking the question I was afraid to!
  Thu. 3/17/11 8:15am annie:

winamp has been buffering like crazy these last few days.. bummer... and thanks for tom lehrer!
  Thu. 3/17/11 8:15am Dave B:

@ Trixie - from the torrents.

http://btjunkie.org/torrent/mst3k-Mystery-Science-Theatre-3000-complete-collection/395208d5e5d9e0510713c635ba4a404eb0795890063f

The quality of some of the early ones aren't the greatest. If anyone is in the NYC area, and wants copies lemme know.

Sorry Meghan.
  Thu. 3/17/11 8:17am Cheri Pi:

Meghan you are KILLING IT this morning.
  Thu. 3/17/11 8:17am Parq:

Everything I know about the elements I learned from reading "Element Man" comic books in sixth grade.
  Thu. 3/17/11 8:18am Trixie:

That link and this show just made my goddamn day.
  Thu. 3/17/11 8:18am Elwyn:

I'm going to ask the question that needs to be asked:
Floods and cyclones in Queensland, Earthquakes in Christchurch and near Japan, Meghan doing a Rush theme - is the Apocalypse coming?
  Thu. 3/17/11 8:19am Dan B From Upstate:

Thanks, Dave B!
  Thu. 3/17/11 8:21am Dave B:

@Parq - a good portion of what I learned about cultivating weed was learned from Dr. Atomic in the 9th grade.

http://www.undergroundcollectibles.com/index.cfm/fa/items.main/parentcat/10295/subcatid/0/id/91586
  Thu. 3/17/11 8:21am Meghan:

Thanks Cheri! Ahhh, that is kinda perfect Parq. And very nerdy....
  Thu. 3/17/11 8:21am Chuck:

If you mean the end of the world, yes, Elwyn. In about 5 billion years....
  Thu. 3/17/11 8:25am Dave B:

and @Dan B & Trixie - That torrent is pretty healthy too. I can't recall how many days it took to download, but it was well worth it...
  Thu. 3/17/11 8:26am Anthony:

I'm just going to go out there and mention the Mike Allred periodic table of the elements pages from his and Neil Gaiman's Metamorpho strip in Wednesday Comics. This is a show for geeks, surely someone else here appreciates this.
  Thu. 3/17/11 8:27am Chuck:

Wish I had the time, Dave! UTP is my major allotment of computer time for the week. The rest of the week I've only got time to check emails...
  Thu. 3/17/11 8:29am Elwyn:

My hard drive is too full of stuff taken from the share drive at work!

That's how I've gotten so much Top Gear for Meghan!
  Thu. 3/17/11 8:30am Meghan:

Woohoo Top Gear!

I used to think i was only kind of a geek. But after seeing the kirk/leia making out pic and saying to myself, "Hot!" I know I'm a bigger friggin' geek than I could possibly imagine.
  Thu. 3/17/11 8:32am Dave B:

If you like Top Gear, British humor and Media in general, seek out Charlie Brooker's Screenwipe. He skewers television in a way that I find hilarious. My co-workers don't get it though....
  Thu. 3/17/11 8:33am Dave B:

HOLY CRAP this Pac Man song is AWESOME!
  Thu. 3/17/11 8:34am jeff p:

It reminds me of Happy Flowers
  Thu. 3/17/11 8:34am Chuck:

Damn! And I was just watching "War Games" last night. Oh, those old video games....
  Thu. 3/17/11 8:36am Dave B:

My best friend used to rule Asteroids and Pac Man. He'd skip classes after lunch because he'd be on a roll, and play for hours on a single quarter
  Thu. 3/17/11 8:36am Elwyn:

MC Hawking was such an angry nerd!

The sad thing is that I remember all that Quake stuff like quad damage...
  Thu. 3/17/11 8:37am Dan B From Upstate:

The neverending theme from Burgertime just entered my head. Thanks a lot, Meghan. :P
  Thu. 3/17/11 8:38am Marmalade Kitty:

Great set Meghan.. And the comedy sketch was hilarious!! :)
  Thu. 3/17/11 8:38am Chuck:

I always liked Tempest best. But I was never that good at it....

BUY IT NOW!

After I heard about Nerdcore, I decided to come up with some spoof subgenres. What I came up with was Pizzacore and Jewcore. A year or so later, I googled them both on a whim. As you've probably already guessed, both subgenres actually exist.
  Thu. 3/17/11 8:41am dirty old man:

Hi Meghan. Enjoyed the show. See you soon.
  Thu. 3/17/11 8:41am Elwyn:

Did New Jersey have daylight savings recently?
  Thu. 3/17/11 8:42am Dave B:

@Elwyn - the entire US (except Arizona) set clocks forward last Sat/Sun
  Thu. 3/17/11 8:42am Meghan:

Damn you Arizona!!!!

Yes, we did Elwyn, it happened on Sunday
  Thu. 3/17/11 8:43am Dave B:

Meghan - he'll ship it. Or better still ROAD TRIP!
  Thu. 3/17/11 8:43am Chuck:

Ha! I think the last time I actually played D&D was 1980....
  Thu. 3/17/11 8:44am Chad sucks:

D&D rocks
  Thu. 3/17/11 8:44am Anthony:

Elwyn are you in AU?
  Thu. 3/17/11 8:45am Trixie:

You know, RPGers might actually get laid if they allowed girls to play.
  Thu. 3/17/11 8:47am Meghan:

Dave I need someone to bring it up the stairs! ha! And Anthony, yes, Elwyn is in Sydney
  Thu. 3/17/11 8:48am Dave B:

I'd gladly help...
  Thu. 3/17/11 8:49am Dave B:

@ Chad - check the archives later today for the whole show... Some good stuff!
  Thu. 3/17/11 8:50am Anthony:

Oh no way, I'm in Adelaide.
  Thu. 3/17/11 8:51am Chad sucks:

Dave B, Chocolate Rain is pretty nerdy, need to add.
  Thu. 3/17/11 8:53am Chuck:

Makes me wonder what those arcade games went for when they were new. Certainly less than they're asking now...
  Thu. 3/17/11 8:54am Dave B:

  Thu. 3/17/11 8:54am Meghan:

Chuck I bet they went for WAY more! that was new technology!
  Thu. 3/17/11 8:54am Parq:

Miss Meg, this is a freaking awesome show. I'm definitely going back to the archives for this one.
  Thu. 3/17/11 8:55am Elwyn:

Thank goodness there are girls in my Star Wars club. We even have a femtrooper.
