More Nerd News in Brief

I'm not gonna lie; this has been a long-ass week. But it's almost behind us, so I reckon the best course of action is to plow ahead toward the weekend. Of course, before I do that I need to drop another Nerd News in Brief.

  • And the world will never be the same: All you cats in Portland be sure to head out to catch the Mediocre Tour (along with Panda Fist and Hott Pink) tonight at Adventureland. And those of you in Seattle would be fools to miss tomorrow's Goondocks CD release party at Tommy's Nightclub featuring the triumphant return of the Mediocre Tour to Sea-town as well as hometown heroes Optimus Rhyme. You're not fools, are you?
  • The stars at night are big and bright: Speaking of Friday gigs, all you Texans should head Austin-way to check out mc chris's SXSW showcase at Karma (119 W 8th St) Fifteen bucks gets you in, and no wrist band is needed. Bring your friends. Sing along. Get mc some major label love. He will seriously be your best friend if you attend. Seriously.
  • Parliament Dorkadelic: Church shot me an email last week that's just too damn nerdy not to share. Apparently a member of the Finnish Parliament has his Web site viewable in three languages: Swedish, English, and Klingon. Fuck, at least it's more practical than Esperanto!
  • For the Glory of Qo'Nos : Speaking of Klingons, Star Trek metalheads Stovokor are currently soliciting for questions via their MySpace. If you wanna play, simply shoot the guys a message titled “Question” through their profile link. I asked if they had any plans to perform on the east coast and how many Cardassians it took to change a lightbulb. Their answers? Yes and four.
  • Morose: And lastly, our pals Gabriel and Syn have posted another rousing edition of Nerdcore News. Be sure to watch all the way to the end. Gabriel drops some knowledge.

Glad to see I'm not the only one who's had a bitch of a week. Why is it that when I'm stuck in an office the temps outside are in the mid 70s and the sun is shinning, but now that the weekend is upon us, its cold and raining and it may snow later? Grrr.

That’s a question I’ve been asking myself all day, Matt. Hopefully both of us will find some manner of succor this weekend, pleasant weather or otherwise.

OK, googling off your post, I was reminded that you can google in Klingon and learned that you can read Deutsche Welle (German News) in Klingon. Q'apla!

Also, Gabe needs to smile once in a while. (I'm just sayin'.)

Also, also, I hate everyone in the Northwest tonight. Seriously, everyone in driving distance is on my shit list.

Also(cubed), where is Global Warming when you really need it? We really need to get this climatology stuff down so we can whip it out when we need it. Like weekends.

I reckon I need to buckle down and learn Klingon. Apparently it’s the future language of business and commerce.

I dunno, Church. Gabriel bein’ all smiles and stuff wouldn’t exactly jive with his Eeyore-esque voice. ;)

My pal Brux promised he’d take adequate notes concerning the Seattle show. Hopefully I can trick myself into believing I was actually there.

Damn skippy! Why was it in the high 70s this week and then suddenly cold again for the weekend? Not fair!

I can't find a reference, but I read at some point that there are now more speakers of Klingon than Esperanto. I'm sure there's some kind of profundity there.

And I see over at NCHH that there were lots of people video/taping the gig. I just might forgive everybody if that stuff gets posted. Soon.

Gabe made me laugh with his outro. Good stuff.

Gabe is a funny man. Morose? Oh, he’ll give you fuggin’ morose!
