So yeah… I said I wasn’t going to blog during the Christmas season… and I was fine with that… I stuck to it. Then I realized I would have to share all the Christmas stuff I’ve been saving up for my December posts… when exactly?

Next year? No thank you. I decided I’d drop this in early January for some unknowable reason.

1391712268I made a post about Howard Stern going off about podcasters. It seems that an comedian Ari Shaffir when off on Howard Stern on Joe Rogan’s podcast. In response to Ari going off on him about podcasting, Howard made this:

The whole thing odd. It also most comes off as Howard is back peddling, yet still trying to hate on everyone. Stating: “That’s what a podcast is. You can sit in your room and pretend you’re on the radio. Pretend you’re broadcasting” or Stern states that in order to gain a following, “You gotta go on terrestrial radio and wait until the ratings book to come out to find out if you’re any good.”

The whole thing is mind blowing dumb… In fact, why in the world does Howard even care what we do on podcasts? But like I said in my post called Love letter to Podcast and Hate mail for Howard Stern:” It seems that most of his shows are nothing but hate on this. Hate on that. Hate on them…. He has become, what people of the interwebs like to call a TROLL. Oh sure there are times where we are on a podcast and we discus things we are not fans of. But we don’t sit there and bash it for no reason. We at least give reasons to why we are not fans/followers of certain fandoms. We’re not making fun of a group of people and life style! With Mister Stern the hatred comes off as something that is cool to do. Let see how many people can we set off by doing this. All in the name ratings and money…… When making jokes or some form of comedy on Stern’s show is mostly at someone else expense. Mocking, bellittle, tearing down and form of one’s character all in hopes of getting a laugh.. Really!?

With the podcasts that I’m apart of, we are a family unit. We come from different backgrounds, we have different tastes & different ideas. But we all find a common core and the laughter, humor, heartache all comes from a real place with passion. We don’t do this for money, ratings. We do this because it makes us happy in sharing what we have in knowledge or hobbies. If we happen to pick up a new listener or help someone come out of their shell so to speak, then GREAT!! That is why we do the podcasts we do. No more, no less.”
He is a TROLL and nothing more sadly. I really feel his is missing the point about podcasting and what we are about. There are So many different styles of podcasts out there from all over the world. It’s really not that hard to get a following now a days. I mean look at YouTube… You can use the tools of social networks and or forums to boots your followers. Twitter is a great example on how to share word of mouth. Anyways, I’m done with this topic and Howard. No point in giving into or feeding the hate/drama he is trying to create. lex_adv_300

batman-590x325Adam West and Burt Ward will return for animated ’60s Batman movie!!!! Yes that is right! They are coming back to the Dark Knight world and personally I’m rather ecstatic about it… If you couldn’t tell haha. To honor five decades of KAPOWs, Burt Ward told the Mad Monster Party that there will be a “new, animated Batman full-length 90-minute feature” in 2016, and “Adam and I are going to be doing the voices.” great news for the fans of the TV show. After a slew of rights disputes between 20th Century Fox (owners of the old Batman show), DC Comics (owners of Batman), and Warner Bros. (owners of DC Comics), the series finally got a home video release in late 2014, as well as a spat of DC Comics called Batman ’66 in 2013 and 2014.

Knowledge Power Hour!

knowing-is-half-the-battleGeek: “The word geek is a slang term originally used to describe eccentric or non-mainstream people; in current use, the word typically connotes an expert or enthusiast or a person obsessed with a hobby or intellectual pursuit, with a general pejorative meaning of a “peculiar or otherwise dislikable person, especially one who is perceived to be overly intellectual”.

Although often considered as a pejorative, the term is also used self-referentially without malice or as a source of pride. Its meaning has evolved to connote “someone who is interested in a subject (usually intellectual or complex) for its own sake”.

This word comes from English dialect geek or geck (meaning a “fool” or “freak”; from Middle Low German Geck). “Geck” is a standard term in modern German and means “fool” or “fop.” The root also survives in the Dutch and Afrikaans adjective gek (“crazy”), as well as some German dialects, and in the Alsatian word Gickeleshut (“jester’s hat”; used during carnival). In 18th century Austria-Hungary, Gecken were freaks on display in some circuses. In 19th century North America, the term geek referred to a performer in a geek show in a circus, traveling carnival or traveling funfair sideshows. The 1976 edition of the American Heritage Dictionary included only the definition regarding geek shows.”

Nerd:Nerd or nerdy is a descriptive term, often used pejoratively, indicating that a person is overly intellectual, obsessive, or socially impaired. They may spend inordinate amounts of time on unpopular, obscure, or non-mainstream activities, which are generally either highly technical or relating to topics of fiction or fantasy, to the exclusion of more mainstream activities. Additionally, many nerds are described as being shy, quirky, and unattractive, and may have difficulty participating in, or even following, sports. Though originally derogatory, “Nerd” is a stereotypical term, but as with other pejoratives, it has been reclaimed and redefined by some as a term of pride and group identity.

The first documented appearance of the word “nerd” is as the name of a creature in Dr. Seuss’s book If I Ran the Zoo (1950), in which the narrator Gerald McGrew claims that he would collect “a Nerkle, a Nerd, and a Seersucker too” for his imaginary zoo. The slang meaning of the term dates back to 1951, when Newsweek magazine reported on its popular use as a synonym for “drip” or “square” in Detroit, Michigan. By the early 1960s, usage of the term had spread throughout the United States, and even as far as Scotland. At some point, the word took on connotations of bookishness and social ineptitude.”
