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 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.

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.
