The Nerdiness of Dark Comedy: Part 1

Dark Comedy

Mike Eagle is bad at sarcasm so he works in absurdity. He’s also kind of a nerd.

In honor of The Mike Eagle Show happening in Seattle tonight, I wanted to write some sorta big article about Mike and his latest album, Dark Comedy. After having listened to it about a dozen times since it was released, I realized that one my favorite things about it is all of the nerdy references he slips into his lyrics. So here are all of the nerdy references I noticed in the first six songs on the album. I prolly missed a bunch; let me know if you heard any that I didn’t. If you’ve already read Part 1, you can head straight to part 2 here:

“Now wait just a gorram minute,” you’re probably thinking. “Didn’t you just say how you don’t like it when musics you love happen on a school night?”

Well, yes, that’s true. But this Thursday AIN’T NO SCHOOL NIGHT, BITCHES! Friday is the 4th of July! And Carrie & I both have it off, so Thursday night we’re gonna leave the wee beb with the grandparents and we’re both gonna head up to Seattle to see some sweet, sweet, Mike-Eagle-and-Three-Ninjas variety meat.
