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 14 – The DC Carnival of Sadness

On this fortnight’s episode we mourn the passing of Justin Carmical, cheer ourselves up with talking about Marvel’s cinematic universe, get a little sadder with DC’s cinematic future, feel okay with Star Wars episode VII getting a new script… and finally feel pretty happy about the new looks for both the Ninja Turtles and the Doctor.

Man, a TMNT/Doctor Who crossover would be great…

Episode 13 – Off the Rails

On this convoluted (yet excellent) episode we talk about the Star Wars canon getting rewritten, Sailor Moon’s new anime, Gotham isn’t the show we hoped it would be, Hank Pym gets cast in Ant Man, Man of Steel 2 is a mess, and CHI FI is cancelled.

Yeah, that last one is a bit of a mess.

Episode 12 – Barely Legal Pizza

On this post-Holidays episode of Nerd & Tie we talk about how god-awful cold it is out there, the Doctor Who Christmas Special, Sherlock’s return, Space Dandy (which we almost forgot about), Star Wars returning to Marvel comics, Community’s return to the airwaves, and your messages to us in the mailbag.

We really do love reading your messages.

Episode 11 – The Best of 2013!

In this fortnight’s episode we talk about Disney’s new television show with horrible implications, Ant Man finally getting a lead actor, Scott Lobdell being a douchecanoe – and our best and worst picks for 2013.

Because it’s just about over.

Because it’s December.

You really should have known that already.

Episode 10 – Routh’s Still Relevant

On this amazing installment, we review Daisho Con, finally talk about the 50th Doctor Who special for realsies, Man of Steel 2’s Wonder Woman gets cast, Singer hints at Mr. Torso Extension himself “Apocalypse” showing up in the X-men films, Aki Con is the worst convention ever to unfunny and depressing degrees, and we answer your emails.

Also, Brandon Routh is totally still relevant and we love him.

And his tiny red shorts.

Episode 9 – Live at Daisho Con!

Our ninth installment was recorded live at Daisho Con 2013 in the Wisconsin Dells! We talk about Thor 2, the (sadly) continued existence of Heroes of Cosplay, the Night of the Doctor and, since we recorded this hours before the real 50th Anniversary Doctor Who episode aired, we make up what happened in the special.

It’s fun.

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.
