Get Out!!

By now, if you haven't seen the movie Get Out, you must have surely heard about it. The racially tinged social experiment written, produced and directed by the hilarious Jordan Peele, has taken movie goers on a wild ride.  Some call it racist. Some call it bizarre.  I call it a solid movie with interesting societal mores on race and the races in America.  This week as we finally break from our Podcast hiatus.  I talk about my feelings on the movie.  I also share a very cool article I found on the verysmartbrothas.com website that pokes fun at white and black friendships.  I round out this week's discussion with some nerd chat with a mini Logan review and Wonder Woman trailer reaction.

Blue Vs Black Friday

The official kick off of the holiday shopping season is here.  Millions of Americans are more interested in buying that cheap television than voting for a decent President. I for one did both.  But, I was a little saddened by the Nerd Black Friday that we enjoyed last year.  Gamestop introduced us to the Funko Mystery box and Golden Pops, Hot Topic made us guest for the rare black and white Pops and each store had something we all wanted.  But, i digress, this Year each store failed to connect with collectors.  Walmart even threw their name in the hat with a mystery box that was full of foolishness or maybe it was just boring.  Nevertheless, we went shopping each day and night and made the most of a bad shopping situation.  




Run Away?

Tonight we are talking about a few things.  Death and how when it's in the form of someone close how the depression comes in waves.  Making life changing decisions.  And a funny story about a straight guy who "accidentally" goes in to a gay sex club in Berlin and lives to tell the hilarious story. 

Stop Clowning




On this episode we talk about the recent increased random appearances of Clowns in cities across the country. Many are thinking it's just a gimmick to play on people's fear of the painted of creatures  But, others think there are far more nefarious intentions at play. Joined with my favorite cousin and past host, Darling Nikki, shares her thoughts on this not so funny clown invasion.  We, also, talked about the new Luke Cage on Netflix.  And upcoming Halloween shenanigans...

Bricks and Barrowman


On this episode of The 5by5 Podcast you will hear about our recent trip to Cincy Comic Expo. We met (again) John Barrowman and each time we meet him the more he violates our innocence.  We also met Teddy Sears from the last season on The Flash as Jay Garrick and Zoom.  He was really nice and really tall  We also chat about how I hate Crickets and they have invaded my basement.. ugh!!!

Interviewing The UndieGuy

I came across an interesting guy doing underwear reviews online.   And not just any underwear but sexy underwear and some regular ones too. But, underwear all the same.  He is the self titled UndieGuy and he is sweet as he is handsome. We had the pleasure to chat with him and it was a fun time. Check out the podcast below.  And also check him out on Vimeo and YouTube.

Birthdays Cons and Steven


It's amazing how something you glanced over can take over your life in an instance.  Well, maybe not that serious, but it can commandeer a lot of your time.  I think that is the definition of being a Nerd.  How much you end of loving the weird stuff. A few years ago I used to watch a little quirky show about a boy with a gem in his button.  I never paid much attention to it until my niece developed an addiction for the show, Steven Universe.  Apparently, loved by many this show has take me by surprised and I now have a new Nerd to immerse myself in.  Below is the iHeartRadio edit of my latest 5by5 podcast.
