I drank pure cane sugar and lived. See the horror!

blueboardNIf sugar makes everything better… what about just skipping to the sugar? Of course we knew better, yet me and my brother wanted to brave it just for the experiment.  We first tackle some energy drinks, all but one foreign, and then top it off with cane sugar juice in a can. If you enjoy it we would appreciate a jump over to our channel and a like and subscribe.


Hey, this Swedish Banana Candy is actually Dutch? (We try it anyways)

blueboardNAt Joe Con 2015, I had brought Tom, The Silent Assassin, some ale 8 one that I had purchased from Jungle Jims, and some Banana Candy, that i thought was Swedish, for myself as a snack. It didn’t take long for me offer “Swedish Banana Candy” to someone and for it to sound worse than I meant it, jokes ensued. Here is me (Sam) and Brad giving it, and some pineapple single packed gummies a try.


Two Americans try British candy.

blueboardNBrad and myself (Sam) try some candy from the UK in our latest youtube video. See it below, and we would appreciate a like and subscribe if you enjoy it. You really should make it a priority to try those Milky Ways, they are far superior to the ones in the U.S.

Btw, we have a better mic for this setup now!


Sam and Brad eat weird Japanese candy

blueboardNMy brother Brad joins me (Sam) to eat weird Japanese candy we purchased from Jungle Jims, a nearby magical place with food from all over the world, and plenty of exotic things to try that fall more in the Bizarre category than any ethnic one.  First of several, so stay tuned for me. If you enjoy be sure to click over to youtube and give us a subscribe.

Our friend Dakana in the UK gives food reviewing a try, specifically an item intended to be “American” in nature form Mcdonalds

blueboardNOne of my old podcasting buddies (and hopefully he will be on with us on Nerdrahtio as well soon) gave a McDonalds American themed burger a try in the UK. This particular flavor was really more of an American attempt at Mexican, but it’s true we do that kinda thing in the U.S. (true story Taco Bell tried to break into Mexico by claiming to be American food!)

Nerdrahtio (and Tom Brooks) Interviews Josh Blaylock about Operation Nemesis and some Joe talk and even more!

operationnemesisThe Legendary Tom Brooks from Reasonably Intelligent Ramblings joined us as we interviewed Devils Due founder Josh Blaylock. We first discuss his new book, Operation Nemesis, the most serious thing we have ever talked about Nerdrahtio. You could read me review HERE, but as a reminder, it’s about a real genocide, real revenge, real war, and real court room drama, with Nazi’s, religious conflict and more.

We then turn to Josh Blaylock’s time with G.I.Joe (after a short trip talking about weird for 15 minutes or so) and other upcoming and ongoing comics published by Devils Due.

Finally Tom Brooks, Tom Mathias and myself (Sam) chat comic tv news, followed by FSS and other G.I.Joe talk with our news desk.

You can listen via the embedded player below or use the drop down menu above to locate us on Stitcher, Itunes or directly at our audio host: Podcast Garden.

Several images follow in relation to our Joe Talk but I first want to plug Tom Brook’s blog, click his happy mug to head over and check it out. There you will find tons of images of the FSS figures we end up talking about.  I’d also love for you to help add some images!  If yo ucould provide us with an image of heartwrencher from the DDP comic, or white guy varient Alpine we could host here (or maybe something else you here us talk about), we would appreciate it.

Boo Berry Cereal, a non nostaligic review

In honor of Halloween, I thought I’d do review of a popular cereal that has made it’s way back onto the shelves, and one that I never had as a kid. I was always a fruity pebbles guy and these days I tend to end the boring healthy cereal if i do partake in a milk soaked breakfast.  (Review Below)


You can’t tell from looking at this pic, but cereal box sizes have shrunk. It’s smaller than the Cheerios and Honey Bunches of Oats that it joined above my fridge.  Also look at his mouth… On the right it looks like he has some sort of inward facing boil at the corner of his lip? The contents within are what’s important though.

The cereal itself is a purplish color and is only sparsely sprinkled with marshmallows, which may disappoint the kids who might want an amount on par with Lucky Charms, but it didn’t bother me. The cereal shapes stay crunchy for a good while so you don’t get the instant soggy that some cereals give you. It was good to the last bite. The taste of course is what matters most, and it was solid. It has a blue berry like taste, but it’s sweeter than a real blue berry (of course.) It wasn’t overpowering, so sugar fiends might be underwhelmed but it had loads more flavor than the last cereal I reviewed (the criminally awful Scooby Doo cereal. )

As a fan of blue berry and other fruity cereals I can easily see why there is a nostalgic love for it, I’d prefer it over Count Chocula any day, but it isn’t quite as good as my classic kid’s fav (Fruity Pebbles all the way!)   I’d give it a 8/10
