Unfunny Nerd Tangent 48: Deadpool 2

We’re strapping on our parachutes, ignoring the wind advisory and diving mustache-first into our most anticipated No. 2 of the year: Deadpool 2. And we brought drinks to share!

Did you know Ryan Reynolds owns Aviation Gin? Our special guest Micah Zahler, a Ryan Reynolds superfan and host of the upcoming Always Parched podcast, crafted us a gin-based version of Deadpool’s signature cocktail. We’re not embarrassed to say it — it’s a SEA BREEZE.

Deadpool Sea Breeze
1 oz Aviation Gin
1.25 oz Tattersall Grapefruit Crema
.5 oz Pure Cranberry Juice
Dash of Strongwater Fire Tamer Bitters
Top with fresh Grapefruit Juice

You might want to make it a double because we’re obliterating the fourth wall with tangents on everything from obscure X-Force heroes to which Golden Girl we’d beg our hypothetical shapeshifting mutant girlfriend to mimic. Yeah, we’re pretty much writing Deadpool 3. You’re welcome, Ryan Reynolds.

Hosted by: ‘Captain Bangarang’ Greig Tansley (@GreigT13).

Featuring: ‘I love gluten’ Jared Robinovitz (@superjew75) & ‘Timmin’ in refrigerators’ Tim Agne (@timagne).

Unfunny Nerd Tangent 47: The Big Lebowski

The Big Lebowski is 20 years old, man. So of course we had to give it the Unfunny Nerd Tangent treatment.

Much like a urine stained rug, since 1998, The Dude, Walter and Donny have left their indelible mark on movie goers, and we are no different. We gave up honouring Shabbos to record this show, so check it out, or we’re off the bowling team.

But, seriously, whether you’re a nihilist, a failed European pop star, a nude artist or even a mysterious, moustachioed Stranger, you’re sure to love this latest episode of UNT.

And if you don’t… well. That’s just, like… your opinion, man…

Hosted by: Greig ‘The Dude’ Tansley (@GreigT13).

Featuring: Jared ‘Walter’ Robinovitz (SuperJew75) & Tim ‘Donny’ Agne (@timagne).

Music by: The First Edition & The Gypsy Kings.

Unfunny Nerd Tangent 46: Avengers – Infinity War

The Infinity GaUNTlet.

Avengers: Infinity War is finally here, and of course, we had to gather our stones for our very own gaUNTlet and dissect this monumental film ten years in the making.

Favourites, Yoshi and Mateo cross space and time to join us once more, Jared continues his assault on (what’s left of) the DCEU and has Tim finally come around to jump on the Marvel bandwagon?

Either way, we should have aimed for the head.

In short, if you haven’t seen it yet, run, don’t walk to your nearest movie theatre and ingest this Peter Dinklage-sized movie, avoid ALL spoilers, and soak in what might just be our Unfunniest episode yet.

And bring your tissues…

Hosted by: ‘Time Stone’ Greig Tansley (@GreigT13).

Featuring: ‘Mind Stone’ Jared Robinovitz (@superjew75) & ‘Power Stone’ Tim Agne (@timagne).

Special Guests: ‘Reality Stone’ Yoshi (@yousephtahna / YoshiCast.com), ‘Space Stone’ Mateo Morales (@matt_morales) & ‘Soul Stone’ “Sprung” (@jasprung).

Music by: Alan Silvestri & The Spinners.

Unfunny Nerd Tangent 45: Batman – Gotham by Gaslight / Justice League – The Flashpoint Paradox

What do Tim and Greig do when Jared and the rest of the Steel Cage crew head to NOLA for Wrestlemania? Well, when their force projection powers wear off, they head back into the Dad Cave and start talking (at length) about Batman cartoons.

This time, it’s Batman: Gotham by Gaslight and Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox.

Our intrepid BatDads delve into a variety of topics, including Bruce Timm’s affinity for animated ladies, why Tim should watch Supernatural on the CW, and the correct way to enter a Lazarus Pit.

Just like diamonds, BatDads are forever, so while we wait for Thanos and the Infinity War to destroy everything we hold dear, step into an alternate, unfunny reality and check out UNT: 45.

Hosted by: ‘Cyrus Gold’  Tim Agne (@timagne).

And featuring: ‘Captain Boomerang’ Greig Tansley (@GreigT13)

Music by: Judas Priest & Randy Randolph.

Unfunny Nerd Tangent 44: Ready Player One

Steven Spielberg’s new movie, Ready Player One, based on the Ernest Cline novel of the same name, has hit the box office, and as such, our intrepid clan of gUNTers has recruited the greatest Easter Egg hunting team of all time.

We welcome back Yoshi from YoshiCast and the Transmission Podcast, as well as newcomer and (somehow) “fan” of the show, Emily McIntosh from KGSR Austin.

We certainly earned our name on this one, where as well as the merits of the film and comparisons to the book, we dived down the tangential rabbit hole to find ourselves in a world of lactation cookies. Ask Tim.

Jared finds his hill to die on, we make the Shining / Transformers connection, Yoshi admonishes Greig’s lack of D&D knowledge, and we pondered the pros-and-cons of F-bombs in PG-13 films.

UNT 44 was a fun show to record, so slip on your immersive visor, squeeze into your HAPTIC suit and dive into Ready Player One.

Maybe just leave the cod piece at home…

Hosted by: ‘Gregarious Games’ Greig Tansley (@GreigT13)

Featuring: ‘IlliterateTim Agne (@timagne), ‘Iron Giant’ Jared Robinovitz (@Superjew75) & ‘Tomb of Horrors’ Yoshi (@yousephtanha).

Special Guest: ‘2112’ Emily McIntosh (@emilymci) from KGSR Austin.

Music by Van Halen & Rush.
