And we’re back! Fresh off of their appearance at BayCon 2013: Triskadekaphobicon, Eric, Bryan and guest Kevin Sutorius delve into the history of science fiction, and key figures/works that pushed the genre forward.
What’s happening, Nerds!? That’s right; I am back! I miss you all dearly, but I am having a great time working on my short film. I’ll have a blog for you about our progress soon! Thanks for the support!
I’m coming to you, out of my hiatus, to spread the despicable word of Walter White. Oh you’ve not heard of this man? Well please, invite me in for some lemonade and I will tell all I know.
While Eric is on Break, Nerdonomy regular Dave McGuire shares the history of screenwriting with Bryan, as well as talking about the process of storytelling.

Infinite Diversity in Infinite Combinations
I was skeptical as I walked into the theater to watch Star Trek Into Darkness. After seeing early trailers for the film, I felt let down. What I saw was something that looked more like the Avengers than any Star Trek movie or TV show that I’ve seen. As J.J. Abrams has showed us before, this is not Gene Roddenberry’s Star Trek. But that’s okay. As I watched the opening sequence and got to experience Kirk and crew violating the Prime Directive, I wondered if that was a metaphor for what Abrams was doing with the series.
What started with a conversation about Empire Records ends up as a discussion on Gen X films. Hear how the discussion evolves as Sarah and Bryan wax nostalgic about a cult classic, and why Kevin feels like the odd man out. Enjoy!
