With Pope Benedict XVI’s historical resignation only a few days away, Eric, Bryan, and Nerds on Film co-host Sarah Ashley discuss all things Catholic, and especially Papal. Enjoy!
Movies and beer go amazingly well together. In some cases, drinking enough beer can make a movie which would otherwise be a steaming pile of cow dung, absolute poetry. In other cases, though, finding the perfect beer that compliments a film can help shed new light on it by allowing not only your senses of sight and sound to experience it, but your sense of taste as well. Having had this epiphany, I thought it only prudent to share my vast knowledge of brews and movies through a beer and movie pairing.
Last week, I shared with you Steps 1 and 2 for how to complete a college degree in preparation for your imminent career as a superhero. One that may even make Phoenix Jones go “Damn!”
Shall we continue? A-thank you!
STEP 3: Plot Out Your Courses
All the following courses are based out of (read: blatantly and shamelessly borrowed from) a 2010 Course Catalog within the California State University system (San José State University, to be exact). They have been balanced to cover all General Education requirements, and exceed the standard 120 unit requirement that most 4-year colleges have for conferring Bachelor’s degrees.
Eric, Bryan and guest host Sarah Ashley discuss the history of film. Enjoy!

I can remember a day when no one knew what the hell The Matrix was, but GODDAMN did we all really want to! There were cryptic ads on the radio in 1999 that ended with Morpheus’ line, “Unfortunately, no one can be told what The Matrix is. You have to see it for yourself.” The television ads didn’t give too much away either, besides some short but sweet kung fu clips. So, there I was, a sixteen year old movie nerd, dying to know what kung fu, leather jackets, and Ted “Theodore” Logan all had to offer.
