Nerd News in Brief

Last week there seemed to be an exorbitant amount of nerd news. This week? Not so much.

Still, if you like new tracks and live shows, then I've got some news for you!

Nerd News. In Brief.

  • The Southern Cross: This week mc chris will cut a swath of musical destruction across the south. Dates and locations are as follows: 04/10/2007 07:00 PM - Emo's, Austin, Texas ($8 ADV / $10 DOS); 04/11/2007 08:00 PM - Club Dada, Dallas, Texas ($12); 04/13/2007 07:00 PM - Orpheum, Tampa, Florida ($10); 04/14/2007 07:00 PM - Rays Downtown, West Palm Beach, Florida ($10 ADV / $12 DOS). mc asks that you please remember that he is opening for Piebald, and not t'other way around. Show up early and support your boy!
  • Put it in the Word .doc with a password lock: MC Frontalot's brand new album Secrets From the Future has now been released in earnest. His tour with MC Lars is also currently underway. And to sweeten the deal even further, Front's dropped a new single , this album's title track, for free download. Who loves you? MC Frontalot loves you!
  • Exterminate, Annihilate, Resequence:Aussie beatmeister Diabolik has just posted a remix of Metamystiks's “Superior Beings” on his site over at the Nerdcore Ning. Check it out and see how they do in the land of kangaroos and… um… now that I think about it I think they just have kangaroos. ;)
  • Mr. Fantastic returns: LogicOne also has a new track available for your listening pleasure via his MySpace . It's called “Phantom Killer,” and it is guaranteed to satisfy.
  • The worst kind of pandering: I've just added a Digg link to the “Other Stuff” section of my ever-growing sidebar. I can't imagine anyone actually using it, but, y'know, it was late and I was bored.
  • Wiid is by my side: And lastly, here's a little treat. It's my pals Gabriel and Syn from Nerdcore News interviewing a very, very hyped- up mc chris in Seattle earlier this month. Enjoy it in good health.

Well, I Digged it. I've never dug anything before so I may have totally screwed it up but I'm the first to screw it up. XD

You Digg me. You really, really Digg me. ;)

Matt S said...

koalas man, they're also known for koalas. Oh, and a big huge rock.

Yeah, that's about it.

Koalas, rocks, and boomerangs. I reckon that's about it, though, right? :D

Paul Hogan?

Finally got around to watching the MC Chris video. Props to G&S. Impressions:

Is Gabe looking slightly less morose lately? I'm not sayin', I'm just sayin'...

Free WotC schwag? At a nerdcore show? I'm on the wrong coast.

"Monster Manual" is a great title. An insanely great title. I get all tingly just thinking about it.

His comics are tax-deductable? I'm in the wrong line of work.

Is somebody doing a collection to get Syn a camera with a zoom lens? Or is the concert footage camera-phone work? How does that usually work? Is there a collection to get Syn a camera-phone with a zoom lens? Is there a camera-phone with a zoom lens?

Somebody write a script for Joe Pesci in which he has a son. Who's a rapper. We'll launch Chris onto the silver screen.

Whatever happened to Paul Hogan anyway, Matt?

And yeah, Church, I think Gabriel’s intentionally trying to stay upbeat. Truthfully, I’m not sure if I like it. ;)
