I like to think that we’re decent writers here on the site. Usually, we’ll just post a podcasts, a few trailers and sometimes an editorial or review. But we’re trying to hone our craft. So that’s why I challenged Natalia to a writing contest of sorts. We took an image from the internet and crafted a story that would be around 1000 words. Hopefully do a lot more.
All credit for the art goes to Lauren Nichols; which is found here.
Either way, we would love to hear some feed back. Or if you have a drawing or art that you would love to hear a story about drop us a line. Thanks!
Hello Nerdy Friends!
I just wanted to drop some knowledge and share a video that I enjoyed. If you listen to our podcast you hear the guys talking about Kickstarter quite a bit. I keep reading about these discussions all over the net, is Kickstarter being exploited by celebrities? Is Kickstarter moving away from their original platform? Are people taking advantage of it?
Kickstarter is one of the sites that is using crowd funding for community projects. Crowd funding is basically a way for people to pool their funds and support efforts by other people. This can be funding for artists, small businesses, disaster relief, inventions, research, and civic projects.
Like many other people, the Call Yourself A Nerd staff are big fans of Joseph Gordon Levitt and will support his stuff.
Not to long ago, Natalia introduced me to JGL’s production company Hit Record. It is a fascinating concept and I hope the best things for the company. But just this week they released a video announcing some big news.
Hit the jump to watch the announcement.
The creators of the machinima Red vs. Blue, Rooster Teeth, have started releasing trailers for their first original/non-machinima based web series called RWBY. Rooster Teeth has been known for their hilarious videos, but have ratcheted up the intensity of Red vs. Blue when they brought in animator Monty Oum. Monty Oum gained his internet fame when he released his video of Master Chief from Halo versus Samus Aran from Metroid.
Now RWBY shows some of the action Monty has brought to Rooster Teeth along with his passion for anime. Hopefully when the series premeires in July at RTX in Austin, Texas; we will some of the great humor that Rooster Teeth is known for.
Hit the jump to watch the recently released White Trailer along with the first trailer featuring Red.
Good morning everyone. We have a special treat for you here today. We at Call Yourself A Nerd think you can call yourself a nerd about anything; a nerd about comics, music, books and even Coke. Yes, we got nerdy about coke. Instead of the Pepsi/Coke challenge we decided to test the highly popular Mexican Cokes against a regular American formula Coke.
Hope you enjoy this one.
