1. Nerdy Show Interview: Fatal Farm Returns to Lasagna Cat

Nerdy Show Interview: Fatal Farm Returns to Lasagna Cat

Chances are good that at some point you've seen a video created by Fatal Farm. They're a duo of FX wizards who specialize in subversion and surrealism, and whose work is as hilarious as it is head-scratching. They've done sketches for Key & Peele, had a hand in two Adult Swim specials, are the brains behind the notorious penis-exploding scene in Our RoboCop Remake, and nearly 10 years ago, unleashed three incredible web series on an unsuspecting world, including their crown jewel: Lasagna Cat. Lasagna Cat is a "tribute" to the works of Jim Davis - live action reenactments of Garfield strips put into a psychic blender. We've been revisiting these videos for years... and all of a sudden there's more of them... and a 1-800 number sex survey. Sound confusing? Never fear - all will be explained. Cap is joined by Fatal Farm (Zach Johnson and Jeffery Max) as they peel off the cat suit and expose the series' unmentionables. Learn why (and how) they collected 1000 people's sexual information, hear about the years of trials and tribulations that led to this glorious Garfield moment - and that's just for starters. They also share an alternate TV intro that never came to be, how their prank series Infinite Solutions prompted an emergency Microsoft meeting, muse on transposing pop culture and pop art, share pro tips for faking birth in a bathroom stall, and give us a taste of the creature features to come.

Join Cap, boR, Nicky and Brandon as they nerd out about the followups to series they love, and speculate on what's to come in all-new titles.

4. The Real Congregation :: The Greatest Band You've Never Heard - Menthol :: 07/15/14

The Real Congregation :: The Greatest Band You've Never Heard - Menthol :: 07/15/14

In the 1990s, there wasn't exactly a shortage of interesting rock bands being signed to major labels. After the surprise success of Nirvana, every A&R rep in the industry was trying to finagle contracts that would make his or her label the proud owners and distributors of music that they didn't necessarily understand. One of these bands was Menthol. Formed in the early 1990s under the name Mother, the band would be snapped up by Capitol Records on the strength of a demo that landed on the right desk at the right time. A debut album was widely released yet heard by few. Capitol clearly had no idea what to do with the hyper-intelligent lyrics married to a dissonant wall of sound that seemed to be comprised of equal doses Sunny Day Real Estate and classic rock radio. Despite pristine production by Brad Wood, radio-ready choruses (after a healthy dose of editing for content), and tours opening for some of the major players in the "alternative rock" game, their debut album sadly sank without a trace. In 1998, Capitol announced the sophomore follow up to Menthol's debut, provisionally titled Danger: Rock Science. Release dates came and went, and eventually the album was left in developmental hell. In the eyes of the record label, Menthol had no business making a forty-minute love letter to '80s music. In no uncertain terms, Capitol eventually refused to release the album, stating that "there will never be a new wave revival." The band was dropped and left to decide how to proceed, despite having some of the best unheard albums of the '90s under the belts with little options on what to do with the material. Marc With a C has been chasing the proverbial grail that is the Menthol story since the fateful announcement that Capitol had completely dropped the band and left their material in the vaults. After nearly five years of attempts to make this episode a reality, he's joined by Menthol's lead guitarist and vocalist Balthazar De Ley who granted us a "rare as hen's teeth" interview. Balthazar tells the unbelievable story of Menthol with intimate candor in full for possibly the first time while also hinting that some of that infamous unreleased material may be available sooner than we'd ever expected. The highs, the lows, the solo projects, rare tunes and the not-so-secret Menthol reunion gigs are all represented here. The Real Congregation is proud to present the greatest rock band you've never heard - Menthol.

6. Nerdy Show Interview: Careless Juja and the World Tour That Wasn't

Nerdy Show Interview: Careless Juja and the World Tour That Wasn't

VGM is a strange genre. For starters, it's a genre consisting almost exclusively of covering other people's music - but the difference between a random band covering a random song and Video Game Music is substantial. VGM focuses on rearrangement of music, sometimes drastically so; often uplifting the source material to previously unrealized heights. So quality VGM is a very special thing - for lovers of video games and instrumental compositions alike. Even more special is the rare occasion of there being a VGM supergroup, rarer still when in this Internet-based culture such an act actually gathers perform to a live audience. That's Careless Juja for you - a high level, shiny Pokémon appearing when you least expect it. Carelss Juja are Careless (Random Encounter, co-creator of Liberty), YouTube VGM sensation, The Great Juja, and a cadre of talented musicians bringing songs you love to life as you've never heard before. Nerdy Show's Cap and boR caught up with the band on the eve of the final performance of their world tour... Or not. Hear a very sleep-deprived Careless Juja elaborate on the preposterous goal of faking a world tour live album in less than 24 hours, and turning what was supposed to be a vacation into a complicated concert event. We also share tracks and tales from this (alleged) World Tour Live Album, and the final Random Encounter release.

8. Nerdy Show Prime: Voice Acting! Part 1

Nerdy Show Prime: Voice Acting! Part 1

When it comes to animation – voice actors define a character. Sure, there’s the writing and the animation, but it’s the voice that really sells the character. What would the Looney Tunes be without their iconic voices bringing each of those characters to life? What’s the difference between a good anime dub and a bad one? It’s the voices. As nerds we’ve created something of a fandom surrounding voice actors. Giving these men and women of a thousand faces the celebrity following that they deserve. And they so deserve it – they get all the cool roles. Spastic rodents, ninja turtles, warlords from space, magical ponies. Not even Johnny Depp has been a magical pony. True fact. In this two-part Nerdy Show Prime episode, we celebrate voice actors, their legacy in animation and other mediums. We discuss the history of voice acting, famous voice actors, defining roles and interview some greats of the field. In this first episode we speak to the legendary Rob Paulsen, whos voice has dominated American animation for the last three decades, as well as Yuri Lowenthal, rising star in all fields of voice work best known for being the Prince of Persia and the voice of Ben 10. This episode is our first fan-commissioned episode! Our hats are off to Byron McIssac and Ross Butler who donated in our April donation drive to their chosen topic of “Voice Acting” and made this episode a reality. Big thanks to them and all donors since for supporting the show and helping us bring you amazing episodes like this one. We couldn’t do this without you.

Episode 188 :: Mandatory Fun: Nerdy Show Interviews

Like a prophet from the stars, or the burning of a zesty burrito, "Weird Al" Yankovic has returned to us. Every few years its his solemn duty to warp pop culture to his comedic will, and over the decades he's amassed a legion of nerdy followers. Chances are likely that you're one of them.

This is the beginning of a new age of Al - he discusses leaving the conventional album format behind, what goes into composing his style parodies, the genesis of his new epic ballad "Jackson Park Express", making crappy songs lovable, and hints to big plans for UHF.

Nerdy Show Microsode: Cracking Open The Dresden Files

When The Nerdy Show Network’s flagship podcast isn’t unloading on the latest geek news and happenings, we’re diving deep into super-specific discussions and interviews.

The novels, the comics, the roleplaying game, even the much-maligned TV show are home to a plethora of paranormal pantheons and all sorts of exciting spins on popular myths. This episode is both a spoiler-free starter-kit for the uninitiated and a walk down memory lane for those eagerly awaiting book 16. Join Dresden-philes Trench, Luke, and Arkais along with total uninitiated novice, Cap, as we explore what sets Butcher's world apart from its contemporaries, our favorite characters and villains, and all the tie-in media.

12. Nerdy Show Interview: The History of Barry Levinson's Toys

Nerdy Show Interview: The History of Barry Levinson's Toys

Join Cap for an in-depth exploration of one of the most tragically-overlooked films of the 1990s: Barry Levinson's Toys. This highly unusual holiday film starring Robin Williams turns 25 this year and we're celebrating by putting it in its rightful place as a marvel of filmmaking and a chilling satire of drone warfare - made years before that was even a thing. Haven't seen the film? No problemo! With help from acclaimed director Barry Levinson (Good Morning, Vietnam, Rain Man) Cap pops open every facet of Toys to see what makes it tick: the gorgeously surreal visuals, the incredible Hans Zimmer/ Trevor Horn soundtrack, and the chilling tale of tiny tanks and tiny planes ushering in an era of endless war. We get the film's full history - from its origins in the late 70s, to the marketing fumble that doomed it, as well as the personal stories of how this movie rocked Cap's world when they saw it in 1992. Yeah, it's one of Cap's favorite films and researching Toys has been a personal quest for years. (Need proof? We've got clips from our 2011 interview with Thomas Dolby in here!) So gather with us in your yuletide finery for a much-needed reexamination of an amazing movie and a poignant parable for our present day.
