Nerd Lunch Podcast

This week we are joined by show regulars Jay from Sexy Armpit and Tim from the Neighborhood Archive to discuss one of my favorite subjects, fictional bands.

spinal-tap

In the first round we talk about some of our favorite pop culture bands that don’t exist. Expect discussions about bands like The Pinheads, Steel Dragon, The Hong Kong Cavaliers and The New Monkees. Then in round 2 we try to wow each other with how obscure we could get with our references. It’s a lot of fun and I’ve dropped a lot of musical cues in the show so you can get a taste of what some of these bands sound like.

And be sure to check out the amazing new intro Jay recorded for this week’s show.

We are all assigned movies and restaurants by someone else and we have to come up with a themed menu to go with that movie using the existing menu of our restaurant.

Lots of fun movie menu choices including movies like The Goonies and Karate Kid Part II as well as restaurants like McDonalds and Outback Steakhouse.  So download this episode, sit back and let us take you on a trip for both your ear holes AND your mouth holes.  Trust me, you’re mouth will be watering by the end.
