Bill Nye the Science Guy

bill_nye_the_science_guy

Long before the Doctor made bow-ties cool, there’s was another man of science trying to make learning everything about the universe cool while wearing a bow-tie, and his name was Bill Nye. In the 90s, he was The Science Guy, and like science-tainment hosts of the past like Mr. Wizard, he tried to get a generation of kids high on science, and for five years between 1993 and 1998, he did just that. But in these extraordinary times of anti-science sentiment, we need more than a “Science Guy”, we need someone to Save the World. Starting next year, Nye will do just that in a series called, appropriately enough, Bill Nye Saves the World(more…)

This time on The BastardCast, Jason and Jeremy pull a 180 after watching the new RoboCop trailer, warn you about the first ever GTA related virus that didn’t come from banging a pixelated hooker in a car park, and go back to school to learn about zombie stuff and things.

Also on the show: This Week in OMG/Total BS Star Wars News, another DC writer leaves the nest (and shits in it too), Will Smith gets ready to have a meeting in an airport Ramada about returning to his signature role (WILD WILD WILD WESTER here we come!), and Transformers 4 gets a title that we don’t care about (look forward to our 180 on The Dinobot Holocaust in a future episode.)

More? We can not deny you the news about an internet addiction treatment center (step one is admitting that you have a problem, step two is joining Google +), our sparkling repartee about the next iteration of the Bat suit, or our questions about whether Elizabeth Berkely (Showgirls & Saved by the Bell… we’re just helping you so you don’t have to use IMDB) can successfully undulate on dry land without the aid of Kyle MacLachlan’s magical unicorn penis on Dancing with the Stars?

By the way, If you have to ask, yes, this next story is readymade to make you scratch your head to the point where it leaves scar tissue: a mail room worker tried to take her career to higher ground by claiming to know the lead singer of the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Chris Nolan, assuming that Hollywood would give it away… now.

Oh, and here is the that BatFleck Batsuit they talked about… see? They posted the link. GO TEAM!

What the Fox Say? He say re-subscribe to the show on iTunes, there may be a glitch in the system that is conspiring to keep you away from us! He also says that the half life of a meme is less than the amount of time that it takes to.. what were we talking about?

All that and Jeremy Argh Hudson on the lightness of beering during the autumnal treat that is, The BastardCast!drunk-cat

Above: Had the crew of the Enterprise in TNG worn latex uniforms, there’d have been no need for the Picard manuever. Though, I cringe at the thought of Worf in skintight latex, as I’m sure so does he. These Star Trek latex costumes from Poison Candy Latex will be premiere at Montreal Comic Con as part of their new line of pop culture latex outfits. Pricing info coming soon. (Fashionably Geek)
