This week the nerds welcome back Doug Frye (Rest in Podcast, Schlock Treatment) to the Fourth Chair. They also welcome back the You've Got The Rights topic as it climbs towards franchise topic status. On the docket for fresh project pitches are an 80s loose cannon cop, a superhero martial arts icon, a member of 24's CTU, and a Saturday morning cartoon favorite. Along the way, the conversation veers into lots of nuts, Nancy Drew, and Hillbilly Jim. Image by gaelx.

This week the Star Wars panel reconvenes to discuss Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. We also talk a lot about Darth Vader's castle. Be one with the podcast. The Podcast is with you.

Nerd Lunch presents Down the Rabbit Hole. Carlin Trammel, Jeff Somogyi and Paxton Holley welcome Michelle Houghton, Disney fan extraordinaire, to dive into We learn about movies that are a mix of live action and cartoons, giggle buttons, pin trading and why you never want to watch a movie with Jeff. Listen now!

In yesterday's episode of the podcast, the crew each predicted three songs that would appear on the Guardians of the Galaxy vol. 2 soundtrack.

Trailer and convention footage has contained the following three songs:

  • "Fox on the Run" by The Sweet
  • "Come a Little Bit Closer" by Jay and the Americans
  • "The Chain" by Fleetwood Mac

According to James Gunn (seen by me at this article), the latter two songs on that list may or may not be in the movie. The convention footage does not prove their inclusion. And, by extension, the trailer doesn't necessarily prove "Fox on the Run" will be in the movie either. Until it's in the actual movie, it's not in the actual movie. However, the exercise given to the podcasters presumptively closed that these three songs would be included. And then asked us to predict three more songs that would appear.

I had a blast working on this and the hardest part was paring down what I wanted to include. And even more so, paring down the three that I would mention on the episode. Here's what I chose:

  • "Magic" by Pilot
  • "You Sexy Thing" by Hot Chocolate
  • "Easy" by The Commodores

But, not to stop there, I wanted to predict the rest of the soundtrack. If any of these are correct, I will not call for them to be counted in next year's Nerdstradamus results. The first soundtrack contained 12 songs. I stuck with that model and filled in six more songs.

  • "Ride Captain Ride" by Blues Image
  • "I'd Really Love to See You Tonight" by John Ford Coley
  • "Tom Sawyer" by Rush
  • "A Glass of Champagne" by Sailor
  • "Feel Like Making Love" by Bad Company
  • "Surrender" by Cheap Trick

Pax, Jeeg and Tim all had great suggestions, too. In fact, Pax is doing a similar post with his full soundtrack over at Cavalcade of Awesome. And there are so many songs we haven't even mentioned that it's possible none of us will be correct. What do you think?

And check out my Spotify playlist with the 12 songs listed above.

This week the Nerds return to their annual topic where they make up stuff about the coming year that won't come true. That's right, it's Nerdstradamus 2017. After a recap of the pathetic showing for 2016, the show welcomes Tim Lybarger to make predictions with them about TV, fast/junk food, and a wild card category. Then, they delve into an exercise of guessing which songs will show up on the second Guardians of the Galaxy soundtrack. Plus: Nerd To-Dos return!
