Hello fellow Geeks and Geekettes,
This is my first attempt writing down the stories that I love to report on the radio waves. Welcome to the Nerdy30. We will be chatting about all things geek, gamer and tech.
First off, Pirate talk.
Matey's it has been reported that the popular torrent site "The Pirate Bay" is back! After a massive police shutdown over the Christmas holidays aka a VERY GRINCH MOVE, Pirates were glad to be back to their ways of illegally downloading. But sad to say that unlike the Isle of De Muerta this rumor is only that. The Pirate Bay had set sail only to be sunk again by local law enforcement. No worries. When the Bay finds a new Capt and sets sail, I will be the first to let you know.
Marvel fanatics get excited because the Netflix series Jessica Jones has cast two MAJOR roles. First off is one that my fellow Whovians know all too well, David Tennant. The former Doctor is set to play the shows main villain, Killgrave aka the Purple Man. Hey as long as they put him in a suit, I don't care what color he is. Next up is Rachael Taylor, formally of 666 Park Avenue. She is slated to play Jessica Jone's BFF Patricia “Trish” Walker, a syndicated radio host, former model and onetime child TV star (known to her adoring fans as “Patsy”). *UPDATE* Now word around the Marvel street is Carrie-Anne Moss of The Matrix has joined the cast in an unnamed role. The Hollywood Reporter describes her as "a no-nonsense woman who could prove a powerful ally to Jessica -- if Jessica doesn't completely alienate her first."
Captain Marvel's boots need to be filled. Now we can all agree that this role needs to go to Katee Sackhoff, but if she's just too busy being awesome I'm totally digging the rumored actresses vying for the role. 1) Emily Blunt - Did you see Edge of Tomorrow? She would kick major ass! 2) Natalie Dormer - I love this chick in everything she does BUT I would rather see her in a villain role. She has major side eye! 3) Yvonne Strahovski - She's hot. She's blond. She's already kicked ass in Chuck so we know she's got this in the bag.
Ghostbusters 3 also found their ladies who will don the proton packs! Paul Feig movie alums Kristen Wiig and Melissa McCarthy will lead the cast of ladies that's rounded up by SNL members Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones! Get ready for the side splitting scenes!
Finally the Superbowl brought us a bevy of new movie spots! Jurassic World. Oh how I can't wait to see you and Chris Pratt in all his glory but a few questions. 1) How do you wrangle a Raptor? 2) Why create a new dino? God complex much? 3) What's up with Jessica Chastain and the Lilu look? Regardless I think this movie will be way better than the whole "King Kong/T-REX" plotline.
That's it for the Nerdy30 this week. Til next time. Stay Nerdy!
