F&N Podcast Episode 007 – Blayne Alexander Jul08

F&N Podcast Episode 007 – Blayne Alexander

Sir Thomas of Stillwagon and I switched vacation weeks so this episode is regretfully Tom-less. Please send hate mail c/o The US Postal Service. Fellow cinephile and lead singer of the industrial rock band Idiot Stare Blayne Alexander was gracious enough to sit down and go through our “Best Of” and “Worst Of” the year so far. Neither he nor I could muster enough self-loathing to sit through The Lone Ranger but feel free to assume its place on one of our lists – your call which. Along with dissecting 2013′s film offerings, I grill him on his time in the music business, what’s different since he...

F&N Podcast 006 – Ask A Twenty-Something

In an effort to solidify our impending irrelevance, we sat down with twenty-something whippersnappers Sara, Nick and Paul to find out what these crazy kids are into. Have they heard of Nirvana? Pearl Jam? Creed? Has Hootie & the Blowfish completely disappeared from the collective conscious? Has Radiohead been reduced to quick mentions by Katie Perry and Avril Lavigne? Does Beyonce have a fat ass? Does Snoop Lion have a fat ass? Why is Ryan Gosling so damn dreamy? What the hell is a Milli Vanilli? Sit back, relax and find out why what you loved growing up in the 80s and 90s means nothing to anyone but you. Listen Here: Your browser does...

F&N Podcast 003 – Marc Hampson Jun10

F&N Podcast 003 – Marc Hampson

Director, Writer, Artist and Musician Marc Hampson braved the heat of our North Hollywood studios to delve into the complicated and fascinating world of independent filmmaking. We end up disappointed with Whedon’s Much Ado About Nothing and defending Zach Braff’s recent Kickstarter brouhaha. Who expected that? Album reviews and discussions include Tricky’s newest False Idols and everyone’s favorite band to listen to in the background, The National’s Trouble Will Find Me.

F&N Podcast Episode 002 – Eric Sims

You want the Sims? You drive the Sims! We transported the Mayor of Culver City to the exceptionally warm confines of North Hollywood to find out just what makes your favorite lovable malcontent tick. [Hint - Jameson Irish Whiskey] Eric was kind enough to wax curmudgeonly over his favorite California Seething moments, his experience as a speaker at the Rotary Club, why Murder She Wrote is better than you think and how he was bamboozled by someone claiming to be Gore Vidal.   As if that wasn’t enough, we delve into the enigmatic debacle of After Earth, the hubris of M. Night Shyamalan, Vampire Weekend’s newest album Modern...

F&N Podcast Episode 001 – Ernessa Carter May28

F&N Podcast Episode 001 – Ernessa Carter

Unfortunately we chose unwisely and picked The Hangover 3 to discuss on our maiden voyage of the Fierce & Nerdy podcast. Our apologies. Seriously, what a steaming pile of disinterested check-cashing that movie turned out to be. I didn’t get a chance to see 32 Fast 62 Furious (unlike apparently everyone) but I imagine it didn’t hate its audience. Or at the very least, its audience’s pets. On the plus side, we invited author/blogger extraordinaire Ernessa Carter to be our first guest. She was kind enough to sit down and go over everything from the aforementioned depression of The Hangover 3, to the wonderful indie...
