Assuming that you’re a fan of our podcasts, then you might be aware of a fun game that we play on Nerd’s on Film from time to time (by that I mean twice) where we connect two actors by way of their movie appearances. This game is essentially known as Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon, though we don’t use Kevin Bacon. But we can’t deny where we got the game, and that it is ridiculously fun for us movie nerds to play in our off time and on road trips.
If you are a regular listener to the podcasts (www.nerdonomy.com) then you may have heard us drop a few references to the nerdonomy home game. Well this game hasn’t really existed…
UNTIL NOW! (Did you guys just get excited? Because I know I did…)
So here’s the game:
The Setup: First subscribe to the podcasts, and tell your friends about it. Pick a friend or two to play with when a new episode comes out, and pick a Nerd to represent you! You earn points based on what your Nerd does during the podcast. For instance, if I’m listening to an episode of Nerds on History, I can pick Eric and someone else can pick Bryan. If one of the other Nerds is guest hosting on the show, like Kevin, then a third person may join, or those points can go to both players.
1. truly what something is said to be; authentic.
Very rarely do we find an actor that possesses all the correct elements to be called genuine. In today’s Hollywood, there seems to be this thin veneer of charm actors wear when proceeding to give interviews and greet fans at premieres, yet when seen behind closed doors, the entire room becomes dour as the true nature of the actor is revealed; shallow, uncaring, and narcissistic are the trio of adjectives that we hear the most.
As the title suggests, this week Eric and Bryan discuss the history, etymology and culture evolution behind one of the most famous Halloween-related creatures ever: the vampire. Enjoy!
