HNP Episode 41 - Happy Happy Joy Joy: The Ren & Stimpy Story

August 30, 2017



On this super exciting episode of the Holy Nerdy Podcast, this is it folks. This is what you, we, everybody has been waiting for. Joining us in our digital studio have two special guests who are crafting something near and dear to mine and Caleb's hearts. Ron Cicero and Kimo Easterwood are two filmakers who are neck deep in the editing process on their upcoming documentary, "Happy! Happy! Joy! Joy! The Ren & Stimpy Story. They were kind enough to come on our show and talk about their journey in making this film, which covers the inception, life, death, and legacy of this highly beloved and influential 90's kids cartoon. In case the fact hasn't been made very clear up until now, Caleb and I have been lifelong fans of Ren and Stimpy since it aired on Nickelodeon 26 years ago way back in 1991. Needless to say, the opportunity to speak with these two guys about this show (which we love so much) has been a literal dream come true. This film will be heading to IndieGoGo in about two weeks (9/12/2017). So if you are a die hard fan of the show as we are, or even a casual fan, or even if you are interested in learning about the life of one of the most influential cartoons in the history of animation, we urge you to check out their campaign and back it if you are able.

After the break we come back and I cover my time at AnimeFest 2017. This is in my opinion one of the best anime conventions I have ever attended and I got to see tons of official and cool fan made works, watch some very interesting panels about the creators in the industry, as well as meet some of the greatest animators, scriptwriters, musicians, and voice actors in the business. I had a very fun time and can't wait until it comes around again next year.

Caleb and I are currently preppring for our first "Bonus" episode detailing the history as well as audio commentary of the short lived and hugely divisive series featuring our favorite psychotic chihuahua and dimwitted cat, The Ren & Stimpy: Adult Party Cartoon. We will be releasing the first episode for free soon. The next episode containing more history as well as commentary on the next episode in the series will be released as soon as we hit 10 Reviews on ITunes. Additional episodes after that will be released at 10 review intervals until we complete the animated series. We are really looking forward to these bonus episodes. We have done our homework and have compiled a treasure trove of backstory and history on creator John Kricfalusi including introductions for each episode from John K. himself.

HNP Episode 40 - BEEP! BEEP! Caleb!!!

HNP Episode 40 - BEEP! BEEP! Caleb!!!

August 26, 2017



So...Where to begin? First and foremost, if you don't like this episode that is fine BUT please come back for episode 41 because we're going to have some bad ass guest in the digital studio. We're going to have Happy Happy Joy Joy The Ren & Stimpy Story in our digital studio and we're going to talk about their Ren and Stimpy Documentary and ask this some questions about the most funny hilarious cartoon show from the 90's. So be sure to check that out EPISODE 41!!!! Ok now its time for this episode, so I'm going at it alone this week (Caleb). Chris was at Dallas Animefest the WHOLE weekend so on a spur of the moment decision I decided to take on a daunting task... This episode is pretty interesting, I did a lot of research on the topic at hand but what happens in this episode is I tangent crazy and derail on some wild stories of me growing up, being afraid of the dark, and letting my imagination get the best of me. All in all I had a really fun time but damn did I miss Chris. Call it what you want but mad RESPECT to the individuals that sit down and give infomation over and over and over. It takes a lot out of you mentially for sure. I mean some guys do a daily show that last for hours. So I'm thankfull that Chris sits with me and helps pull this show together. He is the WIZARD after all. 

Bob Grey or Pennywise the Dancing Clown or as most people know him/her? IT

So I'm really excited for the new movie coming out, it looks sooooooo gooooood. So in preperation for it, I dove head first into a rabbit hole of weird shit and horror. I did so much reasearch on Stephen Kings IT that I almost drove myself crazy (litterally) I kept seeing balloons bouncing around me while I'd work or be driving. I'd see red clown noses on people as I would have conversations with them. Still trying to get over this shit.

I definitely had a really fun time durring this discussion with myself. Its not perfect and it has its moments but all in all I had a lot of fun. Grab a drink and maybe listen to this in the dark (I recorded this in the dark, while drinking...f u n...t i m e s....) listen as I get scared, tell some spooky stories of the past and give out some dumb Pennywise inspersonations. We've got stickers now so make sure you like our social media pages and then send us your address and we'll get you a sticker in the mail. Still working out some details but right now thats the best way you can get one.

HNP Episode 39 - Do the Nigri Derp!!

August 16, 2017



On this episode of the Holy Nerdy Podcast, we discuss a pretty big win on our part. By sheer accident we were able to nab an exclusive interview with a pair of guys who are currently producing a "tell all" documentary about the Ren and Stimpy show called "Happy Happy Joy Joy: The Ren And Stimpy Story. This documentary shares interviews with the artists, creators, and people of the fandom and wraps it all up in a delicious burrito-like package. We will have them on the show on 8/26/17, so get ready. It's going to be really fun.

Interestingly enough, we also have a Ren and Stimpy announcement to make. Caleb and I will be producing a series of "bonus episodes" for the show. This bonus content will include audio commentary for some of your favorite 90's cartoons. The first in this series will be commentary on the little known Ren and Stimpy Adult Party Cartoon. This series of episodes were heavily criticized for being overtly disgusting and adult themed. It was canceled by Spike TV early before all the episodes were aired and we are going to cover them all. In addition to the commentary for each episode, we will be giving an in depth break down of each episode as well as words from the show's creator John K. before each episode describing why these are the way they are. 

The first bonus episode in this series will be released for free, the second episode will be released after we get 10 reviews on ITunes. The third after we hit 20, the fourth after we get 30 and so on and so on. We really encourage fans of the show to go to ITunes and write a review for our show (good or bad) as we feel these bonus episodes will be a really special look back at these crazy Ren and Stimpy episodes. These bonus episodes are definitely made by fans for fans.

After the break things get a little crazy as Caleb asks me why I don't like Instagram model Jessica Nigri anymore. It has nothing to do with her personality or her looks (believe me it has absolutley nothing to do with her looks!) It all boils down to two simple words.........DERP FACE. That's right, I cannot stand her constant need to ruin her sexy photos and videos by making a Derp face at the end. It totally takes me out of the "moment". LOL. I then can't believe my ears when Caleb retorts with the fact that he loves the derp face and wants more!!. Come listen as we debate (and laugh) the Derp face and why or why not it has a place in this setting?

This brings us to our final topic of the episode, internet fame and the lengths people will go to to achieve it. We go over a few recent stories of people who have set out to become "internet famous" only to achieve it, but for the wrong reasons.

Next week I will be at an anime convention and will not be present on next weeks show. Caleb on the other hand will be going at it solo and will be giving an indepth overview of the Stephen King horror classic "IT". From the book, to the original movie, to the soon to be released remake. Come join this Horror Super Fan as he breaks down each one and discusses what it did for the genre and what it meant to him. He's doing some real homework for this one folks. So it will be a good one.

HNP Episode 38 - DomiYES, DomiNO, DomiHELLNO!!!

August 9, 2017


On this episode of The Holy Nerdy Podcast can you believe we are still talking about Comic Con? Yeah, the same Comic Con that ended amost three weeks ago. There is just so much to discuss for just one or two episodes. So here is our third and final Comic Con discussion episode. But Not Before we get into the dotless, not so white elephant in the room. Yes we are talking about the recently released first look at the character of Domino from the upcoming Deadpool 2 movie. We were surprised and disappointed(to say the least) when we saw these images. The first Deadpool movie did such a great job at giving us "comic accurate" versions of Deadpool and especially Collosus. We were expecting them to knock it out of the park with Domino. To say we were underwelmed would be a enormous understatment. Come listen to our long rant as we discuss why we feel the filmakers are making a huge mistake with the beloved female character.

After the break we get back into more Comic Con news as Caleb reads me a list of things "you may not have heard from Comic Con." We dont get far though because into the first off the list, we get derailled and go off on a tangent. (A similar topic tangent, but a tangent none the less.) Finally we finish up the list and the episode.

HNP Episode 37 - Twitter Kombat Round 2 or the Comic Con Cognizance

August 6, 2017


[EDIT] As some of you may have noticed, this episode was originally released on 8/02/17, but was taken by us because of a complaint about the topic we were discussing. We have since re edited the episode and "bleeped" out all names, places, websites, and twitter handles of those discussed as best we could to try and keep the integrity of the show intact for all of our listeners. It may make the story a bit hard to follow, but what can you do, right?   -Chris

On this episode of the Holy Nerdy Podcast, it's Round 2 of our Twitter Komat session. This time it's my turn to step in the virtual ring as a disgruntled husband of (REDACTED) who we had on as a guest a couple of months ago came out of the woodwork unexpectedly and tried to start some shit with us and another podcast she was a guest on as well. Him and I fought back and fourth for many hours. Blood was shed, our eyes had to be cut open, and our faces were swollen. Though when all was said and done (and believe me, a lot was said) it was your's truly who stood before his fallen adversary, arms raised high, teary eyed, as I let fouth a thunderous "ADRIAN!!" Seriously though, some guy wanted to start something and I had to put him back in his place and show others what a fat old douche he was. Come listen, you wont be disappointed. After the break, Caleb and I dicuss all the comic con reveals, trailers, news, and other happenings that we didn't get to cover in the last episode. What did we think of the Justice League, and Thor Ragnarok trailers? What other news has us squealing like little nerdy school girls? Listen to our discussion to find out.
