After taking a day to recover from a robot overdose , I am back in the saddle again. Much like the late Gene Autry . Here's some nerd news you can use, and, truthfully, some you could probably do without. Which is which? Why, that's for you to decide!
- Help a brother out : Tickets for the pivotal “secret” mc chris gig are half sold-out. This could be a career-defining show, so pre-order and be there as history is made! See mc strut his stuff in front of a room filled with important people in suits. Also, there may be pie.
- Dead Circuits : Say goodbye to MCDJ and DJMC and hello to Philo Farnsworth and Mr. Fingers . After strutting their stuff at last month's nerdcore assault on Las Vegas , our favorite LA natives decided to retool their name to match their style, henceforth: Dead Circuits . Personally, I think they picked a winner.
- Clash of the Titans : Though it's a –ways off, I think this still bears repeating : El Corazon in Seattle will play host to MC Lars , MC Frontalot , and Optimus Rhyme on April 18 th as part of the Beta Nerdcore Tour. Three words: holy fucking shit!
- Pizza and comics : Emergency Pizza Party will be playing a free show on February 24 th at A Comic Shop in Winter Park , Florida . I love a venue that both sells comics and uses an indefinite article in the name.
- Thankee, Sai : In other comic-related news, I would like to fervently recommend the first edition of Marvel's comic adaptation of Stephen King's The Dark Tower to fans of Mr. King , comics, sci-fi, fantasy, cowboys, epics, apocalyptic literature, allegory, words, and pictures. It's good. You should totally pick it up.
- Oh, what a feeling : As one of those over exuberant lovers of the lunchbox , I'd like to say that the new 2008 Scion xB looks silly. And I don't mean silly in the delightfully angular manner of its first-generation predecessor. I mean silly like if Robocop fucked a Sherman Tank .
- [dumbasses] :And lastly, my pal Church made his own version of the Adult Swim apology to the people of Boston . Truthfully, I think his is a bit more accurate.
