Nerd Lunch Episode #8: Nerdy Decor
The newest episode of the Nerd Lunch podcast is live. We are joined in the rotating fourth chair this week by friend of Nerd Lunch, Fitz. This week we are talking about Nerd Decor.
We are each given a fictitious $250 and we are to decorate our inner sanctum with nerdy goodness. Check out the nerdy extravagances we all get up to with this fictitious money.
A lot of the stuff we talk about this week is very visual in nature. I wanted to give some notes to the podcast with images so you can see what I’m talking about in the episode.
Here are some of the things I talked about wanting to put in my Nerd Inner Sanctum.
Star Wars Trilogy Special Edition “Ingot” Teaser Poster (1996) – I actually have this poster currently hanging up in my house.
Star Wars Trilogy Promotional Poster (1990 VHS release) – I love the combination of the three Star Wars poster art for this. In the middle is the famous Star Wars Style A art by Jung. On the left is the Empire Strikes Back Style A art. On the right is the Return of the Jedi Style B art. It was used on a VHS trilogy set in 1990.
Star Wars Trilogy British Quad (1983) – Expensive, but worth it.
Flux Capacitor replica – There are instructions for building one of these yourself or you can buy it whole. I’d just buy it whole.
MAME-station arcade machine – Like the Flux Capacitor replica, you can buy these whole, or find plans to build them. Honestly, I’d like to build it, but if money is no object, I’d buy the cabinet whole then piece together the constituent parts myself.
Return of the Jedi Emperor’s throne – There is no way this is a comfortable chair, but it’s going behind my desk. I may even need a life size Imperial Guard to stand behind me. And if this is going in front of the window, I may need to redo the window to look like the giant Death Star viewport.
