Nerd News: Cosplay Piano, Doctor Puppet, The Mortal Instruments and more

Vol. 4, Issue 12

Hi friends! I can't believe I've forgotten to ask until now, but for those of you who are Whovians—what did you think of "The Bells of St. John?" I thought it was actually a bit underwhelming, but I'm looking forward to learning more about Clara.

What else happened this week?

  1. I've never been big on Chris Hardwick, but the Nerdist now has Sifl & Olly AND a Doctor Who puppet show? Subscribed!


    Gagarin looks a little like Coulson. Coulson=Time Lord? Maybe that's how Joss is bringing him back. He got stabbed through the heart, but it's cool, he has a spare.

  2. Piano cosplay?! Whaaaa?! How come I can't be so creative and awesome with my (useless) music degree?! So amazing.

    I thought the premise of "This is the End" sounded SO bad/stupid - but I must admit, after watching that trailer, it looks hilarious and now I really want to see it :P

    Lastly, I will have WHUR MY BOATS AT WHUR MY DRAGONS AT stuck in my head all day. That video was ridiculous! Haha.

  4. I bet you could be just as creative—you're already awesome—with your talents. I'm sure it all comes down to money.

    I feel the same way about This Is the End, haha.

  5. It's a struggle for me to enjoy a lot of the Nerdist stuff, too, but it's headed in the right direction?

    And Coulson being a Time Lord should totally be canon.
