The Nerd Degree: Time Travel

First off, I was super happy with the team name Jeff Clark came up with for us in this episode, “Wibbly wobbly, teamy-weamy thing”. Effing genius.

Art Wars

Years ago, (2012 if we’re being exact) before I had a child, I had a bunch of free time on my hands and spent some of it scrolling through the online collection of Christchurch Art Gallery.

The Nerd Degree: Heart of Dorkness

Just in time for Valentines Day, it’s the love-themed episode of everyone’s favourite “pop culture quiz show that’s recorded at Orange Studios”, The Nerd Degree. This episode is notable for me reading a poem I wrote about my first celebrity crush, Kirk Cameron.

The Nerd Degree: Star Wars Special II

Yet again I pretended to know more about a topic than I do and got to mix it with the nerds on another panel-quiz-podcast sesh of the Nerd Degree. Full disclosure – I may have bribed my way onto the show with the promise of cookies. Yes, actual cookies. See?

The Nerd Degree: Bite Night

Ha ha! I pretended to know more about vampires than I really do and they let me be on an episode of The Nerd Degree. Suckers! This episode includes unfortunate technical difficulties but not before I get in a dildo joke. Enjoy!

Preacher recap: Episode 10, Season 1

Well this is it, pardners, the season 1 finale. Whether we see God is debatable but it seems highly likely that chaos and havoc will ensue. I honestly have no idea how this will play out but am assuming it will be as entertaining as all get-out. It’s a slightly longer than usual episode of […]

Preacher recap: Season 1, Episode 9

Well, last week was pretty action-packed, what with the Alamo-esque stand-offs, the insight into the twisted head of Odin Quincannon, pet murder, and an overriding mission statement that’s starting to look a lot like “God. What the fuck use is he?” Mysteries of subterranean machinery remain, and Jesse’s relationship with the town, God, and everyone looks […]

Preacher recap: Season 1, Episode 8

This episode is called El Valero, which as best as I can tell is a reference to The Alamo. Given the set up at the end of the last episode, that seems like a pretty good excuse for a standoff of epic proportions. Remaining questions include – “what the fuck happened to Cassidy?” and “could […]

Preacher recap: Season 1, Episode 7

When last we saw Annville’s resident Preacher Jesse Custer, he might just have made himself the worst man of religion ever by sending one of his parishioners to Hell. This episode, entitled “He Gone”, will hopefully fill us in on whether’s that’s what actually happened or at least let us bear witness to the resulting […]
