The Nerd Degree: Lies

If ever there was an episode during which you had carte blanche to make stuff up, this would be it. In the introduction we had to state a lie that we had told and even though I shouldn’t be, I am somewhat proud of the outrageous lie that I told my 3 year old. BAD […]

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 […]
