Keeping the title of Biggest Nerd that Jason and Deb Know is not that difficult of a task. Most of their friends are either just normal folks or total degenerates, so there's very little room for nerds. Even so, I take my task seriously, and I keep up my nerd cred by attending...
Warning, right at the beginning: this is NSFW . Unless you have a really cool boss, or he can't understand the growl of Nathan Explosion's vocals. Then again, there is a Bat-bulge at several points. Enough teasing. Here's the deal: someone animated Batman (and various related...
I'm trying out a new thing. It's pretty radical, for me at least - I'm talking to people. Not my strong suit, being the nerdy, indoorsy type that I am. Luckily I convinced some cool dudes to come indoors and talk to me. They happen to be a band. The band happens to be called...
If you follow me on Twitter , it'll come as no surprise to you that I'm a huge fan of the song "Turn Down For What" by DJ Snake, featuring Lil Jon. If you haven't seen the video, it's amazing. And I couldn't help thinking of it when I saw this Vietnamese restaurant: Saw this...

We've recently taken to playing a clip on the show where some guy yells: "Interruption Number Three! Nick, you get worse every day!" Well, here's the video that started it all. The premise is simple: a kid does an impression of his history teacher (who's obviously one of those...
I've been hearing it for a while now, and I finally saw it for myself: there's some doppelganger of me out there making Time Warner Cable commercials. While my name is Alex and I actually do use TWC in my home, I am not this guy, I do not have his devices, and I am not getting...
