Lucky 10,000 A podcast for anyone who ever geeks out about anything.

00:0000:00

It may be a tad late in the game for a disclaimer, so this episode is more like a confession.  Evan and Carissa go through the top five things which lose each of them 'nerd cred'.  From the not-so-bad to the hate-inducing, we run the gamut of why some well-meaning but wrong-headed folk might dare say we aren't geeks/nerds.

For anyone who's ever been excluded, mocked, or flamed for the stuff they DIDN'T see, hear, like, do, or understand, this one's for you.

All hate (or agreement) can be directed to us through LuckyTenThousand [at] gmail [dot] com, or on Twitter: @Lucky_10k.

Holy crap, you guys, we made it to Episode 10!  We're throwing ourselves a party and of course you are invited!

For the Big One-Oh, we get into some serious nerd love for the Marvel Cinematic Universe.  Yes, we know, "everyone" loves the MCU, and we are no exception.  There are, however - as surprising as it seems - ten thousand people who don't know and love it already.  Maybe you happen to be one of them.  We won't judge, we just want to share how awesome we think the MCU is - not just the movies, but the full scope of the vast multimedia empire Marvel has been able to successfully build.

Please join us for our loving ode to one of the greatest filmographic undertakings of all time.

Evan spews his bile about "the worst thing to happen in the history of mankind": the 30th anniversary 'remake' of the Romero classic, Night of the Living Dead.  We help keep horror fans from being tricked into watching this travesty - if you haven't already been subjected to it, that is.  Just like last time, spoilers.  And again, you're welcome.

Personal note from Carissa: Congratulations to Evil Geniuses on their International 5 victory! NADota best Dota.  #BleedBlue

This is the first of our intermittent series, NERD RAGE!, and to open it, Carissa rants to Evan in great detail about why Equilibrium is the worst movie ever made.  Spoilers.  You're welcome.

But first, a very special message about an event of which every nerd should be aware.  Starting Sunday July 26 and going through Saturday August 8, the largest ever e-sports tournament is being held.  The International DotA2 Championships, series 5, kicks off this weekend with the 16 best teams in the world battling for their shot at a cut of the record-breaking $17 million prize pool.  Carissa is so excited she can barely contain herself, so some of the info given is slightly inaccurate. (Sorry!)

Visit the DotA2 International main page or the DotA2 subreddit for more information, and be sure to tune in online to watch the best of the best compete in the biggest e-sports championship in the world.

It is a dark and stormy night in the L10K studios as Evan shares his passion for all things horror.  He goes through his horror history from Twilight Zone and Hitchcock through American slasher films and the rise of the great Asian horror genre.  Carissa nerds out on why people seek fear through scary movies and surprises herself with how many horror flicks she has seen despite absolutely hating being afraid.

Lots of great suggestions for horror movies if you're just starting out watching, or if you're an old school adrenaline-junky who may have missed one or two classics.

Hope you got lucky tonight!
