Nearly Coherent: Banana Herpes

There’s a new episode of Nearly Coherent!

eD! and Dave discuss lunchtime mishaps, the Popeye’s chicken sandwich, and a follow-up to one of the first Dave’s News Corners he ever made us suffer through.

I genuinely enjoyed this episode, and I hope you do, too, but if not, that’s really on you, y’know?

Nearly Coherent: The Magic Man

As happens every week, there’s a new episode of Nearly Coherent:

eD!, Jeff, Dave, and Val talk about some horrendous dates Val’s been on.

“Horrendous” doesn’t even begin to scratch the surface here, folks. You need to hear this crap, it nearly broke my damn brain.

Nearly Coherent: A Profound Disappointment in Humanity

There’s a new episode of Nearly Coherent but, between the devastation of Puerto Rico, the ongoing feud between Trump and the NFL, and the shooting in Las Vegas on Sunday, there was a bit of frustration for Jeff and I about just cracking jokes about stupid news shit, so a majority of this episode is us getting our yell on for people’s stupid hot takes.

But when we needed a break from that, we did find some stuff that was slightly amusing, because we can’t be all “everything is shit” all the time, y’know?


Cow Farts are Killing the Environment

Farts are the stock and trade of Nearly Coherent, so when I saw this headline from Gizmodo, I knew we had to discuss it:

We’ve Grossly Underestimated How Much Cow Farts Are Contributing to Global Warming

Sadly, I didn’t really read the article before we spoke about it, and my internet connection was being a turd so I couldn’t do a “read faster than Jeff can ask questions” maneuver, so all we really spoke about was the headline, but, still, what a great headline, right?!

A Buncha Shit Re: DC Comics Movies

I’ve been pretty vocal regarding how I feel about DC Comics’ current run of movies — specifically, they’re garbage and the company has no idea what the hell they’re doing at all — and apparently Warner Bros. has started to feel the same way, as they announced that they’re going to focus more on standalone films from now on.

Personally, I think this is a great idea — DC has always worked best in my estimation when they embrace the idea of their Multiverse, and this will be a strong differentiator for their properties from Marvel Studios. Sure, this adds a variety of ways that they can totally screw up, but this makes it easier to walk those screw-ups back in a much faster way.


That was more or less that for this week… Fingers crossed we can make it to next week without some other Earth-shattering catastrophe to distract from stupid crap! (I’m not holding my breath on that one, though, to be honest.)

Go listen to the episode yourself at Nearly Coherent or wherever else you go to get your podcasts. Whatever makes you happy.

Nearly Coherent 036: Useless Trivia & Poops

About 92% of Nearly Coherent is Jeff and I talking about random crap we’ve seen on the internet. We used to say we’d tweet out links for these articles so that anyone can follow up on whatever we’ve discussed, but we’d usually forget.

Well, we won’t forget anymore!1 Here’s all the stuff we talked about in episode 36 for your further-reading pleasure!


iOS 11

Apple released iOS 11 on Tuesday, bringing with it a bevy of new enhancements. Instead of talking about that, though, I focus on the aspect that excited me most that day — an update to the Procreate app that allows for wet-on-wet painting like you’re Bob Ross. It’s pretty delightful, and you should absolutely buy Procreate on the App Store.

Bob Ross

Speaking of Bob Ross, Jeff and I share a weird fascination with the guy, and I’ve blown entire days in crazed Google Holes about the guy and his painting method. If you’d like to also be weirdly intrigued by the guy I refer to as my life coach, you should read the Wikipedia entry on him.

If you want to get to the saucy part — the dismissal of the New York art world of his work and his rivalry with his mentor William Alexander — you’re going to want to skip right to this New York Times article on Ross from 1991.

Mesh Networking

Jeff had a few questions on mesh networks, and, lucky for him, I had several answers. If you’re looking to get a mesh networking system of your own, I recommend the Netgear Orbi, which you can purchase from Amazon.

And just in case you think I’m totally full of crap, that’s also the one that The Wirecutter recommends, so there.

Who Framed Roger Rabbit?

I’m a font of useless information, and when we got into the topic of Bob Hoskins, our discussion naturally turned to one of my favorite movies, Who Framed Roger Rabbit?. After Jeff asked me if I had ever seen Cool World, and I went into a whole bit about why the work in Roger Rabbit holds up better than just about any other live action/animation mix movie made. The source of that rant is this post from an article on Sploid, which has a video that goes into detail about the work done to make the world of Roger Rabbit feel more real than Cool World or Mary Poppins ever could.

The Mad Pooper

If there’s a story about poop, you can bet we’re going to find it and talk about it in great detail. While Jeff only skimmed the headline, I read all about Colorado’s Mad Pooper on Deadspin, and now you can, too!


That should just about cover it! Go listen to the episode yourself at Nearly Coherent or wherever you go to get your podcasts, we’re easy.


  1. Probably. Whatever, I’m dumb occasionally.
