All posts by Trae Dorn

Trae is the tallest of the hosts, and he is certain it’s because he is the oldest. This is (at the very least) why he is the baldest. Trae co-founded Wisconsin’s longest running Anime convention No Brand Con and refuses to apologize for it. Which he probably should. Trae also writes the webcomics UnCONventional and The Chronicles of Crosarth, which leads many to ask when the hell he has time to actually do anything anymore. He says he has time because he “does it all quite poorly.”

Episode 8 – Urine Trouble

On this fortnightly installment of great justice, we talk about Marvel’s Defenders deal with Netflix, Star Wars Episode VII getting a release date, the Olympic Torch in Spaaaaaaace, Daisho Con 2013, a Urine Powered Robot, Nightwing appearing in Man of Steel 2… and we got a letter.

Oooh, we’re all fancy now.

Episode 7 – Gotsta Have Fusion!

On this fortnight’s Nerd & Tie we talk about Red Dwarf series 11 rumors, Captain America 2: The Winter Soldier, Pher’s trip to Anime Fusion, Star Wars Episode VII getting a new writer, the Doctor Who 50th Anniversary special and the announcement of new iPads.

Also we find ways to talk about Bryan Fuller and Transformers somehow. We’re not sure how we got there either.

Episode 6 – A 90s Revelation

The band is back together for our sixth episode where we talk about FOX picking up Gotham (a pre-Batman police procedural), Linda Carter’s Man of Steel 2/Wonder Woman comments, Stephanie Brown’s unbenching by DC, Star Trek Renegades, Star Wars Rebels, (My) Immortal’s season 2 kickstarter, and the newly recovered episodes of Doctor Who.

Also, revelations about Trae in the 90s.

It’s not as exciting as it sounds.

But it’s kind of funny.

Also: Link to the My Immortal Kickstarter.

Episode 5 – Fall TV Spectacular

On this episode of Nerd & Tie we talk about the new genre shows hitting the airwaves this fall. Sleepy Hollow, Agents of SHIELD, Almost Human, Dracula (yes, they’re actually making a Dracula series), Once Upon a Time in Wonderland, and The Tomorrow People all get put under the microscope!

But not The Originals.

Because we have standards.

Bryan “Arcemise” Novak is sitting in for Pher this episode, so don’t adjust your ears. If you have adjustable ears that is.

Man, how weird would THAT be…

Episode 4 – The Second Worst

On this episode of Nerd & Tie we discuss DC Comics recent PR disasters, the new Robocop trailer, Robert Orci losing his mind online, a new Potterverse movie, and Voyager leaving the solar system!

We also talk about Transformers for some reason, and Trae seems to have a thing about !mpact comics.

Episode 3 – More Raccoon

On this installment of Nerd & Tie we talk about casting for both Guardians of the Galaxy and Man of Steel 2, Heroes of Cosplay’s legal problems, Geek.kon 2013, season 5 of Community and the recent announcements made by Nintendo.

Episode 2 – Declassified

On the second episode of Nerd & Tie, Pher, Nick and Trae discuss the leaked Guardians of the Galaxy footage, the midwest regional Con scene, the Patlabor live action film, the declassification of Area 51… and the new Syfy reality series Heroes of Cosplay.

Also, Nick says the Patlabor OVA is on Hulu, but he’s lying. The TV series is though.

Trae also keeps calling the F-117 the “F-115” because he is dumb.

Episode 1 – Inaguration-tastic!

In our first episode we talk about the newly announced 12th Doctor, the future of both Marvel and DC on the big screen, podcast sensation “Welcome to Night Vale,” the webseries version of “My Immortal,” and finally just why Pacific Rim is better than everything else.

Because it is.

Trust us on that.
