I’ll be broadcasting live this Friday from Youtube, because I am a colossal idiot

You may know that I co-host a modest little nerd&nostalgia show on Youtube. It’s fun. And sometimes stupid. And fun. But mostly stupid. I’d not have it any other way. The really stupid thing, though, is that I let my co-host, Tig of Nerd Out With Me, convince me to do a live Christmas special this Friday night. So that’s what we’re going to do. We’re going to broadcast live for hours, doing god knows what. Maybe singing Christmas songs while drinking beer and swinging replica Lord of the Rings axes at one another and accidentally breaking family heirlooms. We’ll have some special guests, including Bad Luck Bootsy from Cinemassacre / Angry Video Game Nerd. It’s going to be awful in the most wonderful of ways and…

It’s time to watch every Star Wars trailer in a row, to prepare for Rogue One awesomeness

I’m surprised I haven’t posted about Star Wars more often, considering it’s been part of my like for about as long as I’ve been been walking and talking. Saw the original in the theater when I was a wee lad, had the comics, had the toys, listened to the audio version on vinyl records with my little kid’s turntable. The whole damn Star Wars experience. Later, I read the books, played the games, and had the bitter Internet debates. Maybe that last part is why. Is there anything left to be said about Star Wars other than “it’s awesome” or “George Lucas ruined my childhood and destroyed everything I hold dear, so I will hold a grudge against him until my final days, praying for…

Watching a bunch of Harry Potter trailers back-to-back, because why not?

A new movie set in the Harry Potterverse is about to debut, Big Giant Monsters and How to Get Them, so my esteemed Youtube Partner, Tig of Nerd out with Me fame, and I decided to do what any sane middle aged men drinking beer in an attic would do: we watched all the Harry Potter trailers back-to-back, jabbering as we did. Eight trailers is a lot. This is a long episode of Hours in the Attic, just short of our longest to date. But we also think it’s a fun way to quickly revisit all those Potter flicks, so check it out:

Lots of cool geeky movie posters & swag! (new Hours in the Attic episodes!)

It’s a happy day when Hours in the Attic returns from its summer hiatus — had to take some time off, it gets HOT up in that attic! — and an even happier day when Tig brings a whole mess of movie theater swag to show off. Tons of superhero flicks, Lord of the Rings, Star Wars, and more. Part 1 has pins and oddball items, and part 2 is his “holy wow” movie poster collection. This thing is crazy impressive – and we only show about half of them! Dig it:   Okay, that part was cool, but this is the REALLY cool one. This is insane. Who has the wall space for all this? Check it out:     Pretty rad. Hit “Subscribe”…

Trans-frickin’-formers, more than meets the frickin’ eye. I said, TRANSFORMERS!

Most kids in the ’80s had a toy line that was their go-to, the one their parents kept buying for them because parents of the ’80s knew that real parenting involved buying toys. It may have been M.A.S.K. or Thundercats or Masters of the Universe, or if you were a girl Strawberry Shortcake or WWF Wrestling figures. In my case, it was Transformers (even though I liked GI Joe more). So when a friend brought a portion of his huge vintage Transformers collection over for a new episode of Hours in the Attic, I was in nostalgia heaven even as I wondered how he managed to land a wife and if he’d sell me that Soundwave and if my wife would leave me if I…
