More Nerd News in Brief

It looks like another edition of Nerd News in Brief is in order. Which is a good thing, I suppose. After all, you can’t eat just one.
  • The two most divisive words in nerdcore: mc chris has a “secret” show planned for February 13th at NYC’s Mercury Lounge. mc’s missive concerning the gig reads as follows: “I CANNOT BEG YOU GUYS ENOUGH TO COME TO THIS SHOW ANYWAY YOU CAN. BE SAFE FIRST AND FOREMOST, BUT GET ME SIGNED SECOND!!! THERE WILL BE ZOMBIE MERCH FOR UR PERUSAL!!! I NEVER USE CAPS THIS IS FOR REAL!!!” While I’ve no idea what this particular gig will have to do with whether or not mc gets signed (label reps in attendance, perhaps?), I do know that tickets are currently available for interested parties. mc chris also goes on to point out that he is, in fact, “IN. IN TO WIN.” This leads me to believe that mc may just be the first female president of these United States. I’m just sayin’.
  • Lovey-dovey: Ultraklystron will be performing at Seattle’s Columbia City Theatre on Valentine’s Day to celebrate the release of his long awaited album Romance Language. This will be an all-ages show, so bring the kids. Rumored opening acts include the one-two nerd-girl punch of Nursehella and Rai, though nothing is set in stone as of yet.
  • More Karl: In other Ultraklystron news, Karl was recently interviewed for Evolution 107.9, the campus radio station of the British Columbia Institute of Technology. Mr. Olson was nice enough to host a scaled-down (and slightly edited) version of said interview at his site for your listening enjoyment.
  • Can you hear me now?: Nerdy comedy hip hoppers Sudden Death have a new track available at The Funny Music Project called “Cellular Degeneration.” Having just purchased a new cell phone, I have to say that this song probably means more to me than most.
  • They come in peace: One of the projects proposed at last September’s O'Reilly Foo CampSebastopol, California. As reported by Kotaku, a group of interested individuals took advantage of said flyover by posting some Space Invaders-style art in the proposed area. The old school arcade goodness should be visible upon zoom-in via Google Maps and Google Earth by mid-February.

Just a note, Ultraklystron's CD release is not at the Columbia City Cinema, but the nearby Columbia City Theatre (which has no web site).

Thanks, 'Nuk. That was an oversight on my part, but the post is all fixed now.

Kotaku missed the other space art project at Foo Camp, a Cylon Raider.

And it's a nice one too!
