33 – Bob’s a Single Kind of Man (Clustercast)

If he’s not, well, he’ll probably be after his girlfriend Tara realizes that we just spent most of this episode making fun of her painful lack of nerd knowledge.  After we get off to a confusing and infuriating start, Tara expresses her desire to see all nerds deported to their parents’ basement.  We discuss (read: interrogate and belittle) her love of butt rock and Shinedown, and then proceed to somehow compare that to the music of Wizards and Warriors II: Ironsword.  Join us as we go deep, deep, deep down the rabbithole of utter bullshit and make up a bunch of Star Wars facts on the fly to test her frightfully small understanding of all things dork!

 


30 – Where Have We Been? Season 2 Kickoff

Okay, you got us; it’s been way, way too long.  But after a few months of complete silence that’s sure to have demolished our seven-person listenership, the Brothers Denton are back with an episode all about what exactly has kept them away these past few months.  Rance talks about what he’s been spending time doing since August and Bob broaches more subjects that royally piss him off.  They reflect on the recent success of Evil Dead: The Musical, and then they get into the meat of it: Fantastic Beasts & Where To Find Them, its merits, its flaws, and exactly what the Brothers Denton felt about it.  They sidetrack themselves with some passionate discussion about Hamilton: An American Musical, Mike Pence, bodily gas, coughing fits, and other wonderfully unexciting topics on this, the unofficial kickoff of The Brothers Denton: Season 2!  Also, there’s a song entirely made out of farts.

 


20 – Sleep sweetly, David Bowie; Eat it, Boba Fett

David Bowie’s dead, and it’s such a damn shame.  Sure, we could have talked about the normal crap, but we decided to take a week-long detour and instead spend this episode reflecting upon the accomplishments of one of the greatest artists ever to draw breath.  After an unfortunate bout of bodyphlegm and “Yakety Sax,” the Brothers Denton explore their formative years as lil’ tyke Bowiebois, discuss some of their favorite offerings in the Starman’s discography, and then divert from the usual topical path to make infantile references to parts of their bodies — or parts of other people’s bodies.  Among our Insufferable Nerd Things of the week: people who whine about The Revenant’s historical inaccuracy (stop it, picky babies), Neil Gaiman books, and Bob’s anger over the sort-of fake first episode of the last season of Mythbusters.  Be sure to stick around to the end, when Bob tells the world what he would actually want from a Boba Fett movie.

7 – Happy Birthday Rupert Grint! (Clustercast)

…or Emma Watson.  Or maybe it’s Daniel Radcliffe’s birthday.  We’re not sure, so we decide to have a second Clustercast featuring some dicknerd named Tyler.  To celebrate the lovely birthdays of some of our favorite actors, we decide to talk all about D-Rad.  We discuss some of the differences between the U.S. and U.K. versions of the Victor Frankenstein trailer, and then mumble about Mary Shelley, Equus, and My Boy Jack.  Afterward, we dreamcast Daniel Radcliffe into some of our favorite movie franchises and roles.  Bob performs some deep equations regarding things that nerds love; Rance confuses Run DMC with Bobby Brown; Tyler discovers his true voice as a celebrity.  But really, all in all, Happy Birthday, Thunderpants.  This podcast’s for you.
