The nerds have scheduled their Nite on a Tuesday this month so as not to interfere with any of the Big 12 tournament (Chip: "I'm pleased to see that the nerds know their place in the greater scheme of things around here.").
As usual, the line-up looks intriguing. Here it is, with brief thoughts in bold.
"Lies, Damned Lies, and Primary Sources: The Lost History of Prester John" by Matt Kirkland
That's a Mark Twain reference, right? We enjoy references.
"In the Heart of Indian Country: Lawrence and Its De/colonization (Part One)"
by Julia Good Fox (Pawnee)
Julia is a friend of ours, but what's up with this "Part One?" Cliffhangers make us nervous! Please don't make us wait TOO long for Part Two.
"Domineering Boulders: What Geology and the Natural World Have to Say About Our Civilization and Our Culture" by Josh Feldman
We can't think of anything very amusing to say about this one, but it sounds quite enlightening.
Visit the FB event page here to discover that 84 nerds are supposedly attending.
As always, the flyer is terrific:
The Leotards haven't graced local stages with their (surprisingly danceable) porn-punk stylings in quite some time. To be honest, we assumed they were in prison for their depraved hijinks, or holed up somewhere hopelessly addicted to heroin. Perhaps they have been. At any rate, they will resurface on Thursday as the opener for King Dong's Variety Hour at the Replay. Is that a band, or an actual variety hour, or both? With a name like that, it hardly matters. Just go and find out. We predict that, at some point in the evening, King Dong and King Tosser of the Leotards will engage in a battle of masturbation jokes (or, as they call it, a "joke-off").
