The Nerdy Music Awards

Hey all, most of you might remember – my attempt (with the help of my friends n1njr, Kid Insanity & Khaotic Rage) at the first 24/7 online nerdcore only radio station. Something we did at 1337ology, which I’ve done a couple of times with is end-of-the-year awards. There have been a lot of great releases this year, and I want to do it again. Only this time, I am thinking I will do it as a video cast instead of a blog post.

I hope all of you will participate. If this works out the way I envision it, I plan to make it a regular feature on And honestly, if you meet the eligibility requirements and believe in your music, why not submit your album for consideration this year?

The Cli3nt

   I am 43-years-old, a hemophiliac, the co-founder of, a blogger at, part-time YouTuber (Geek Out! videocast) and Twitch streamer.
   I'm an old-school gamer, having started playing video games back in 1977 on the Atari 2600 (even managed to place 6th in Jafco's Atari Pac-Man tournament in 1982). I first began abusing games shortly after my best friend introduced me to Quake. By the time Quake II was released, I was addicted.
   After being found, in May 2008, passed out in front of my computer with a mouse cord wrapped around my arm and over 100 flash drives scattered around my body, I sobered up. To help maintain my sobriety, I switched to single player console gaming.
   In my life outside of the Wasteland, yes, I do have one --- wait, that's a lie. I have my Xbox One, Plex media server, high-speed internet, and Dax the Magnificent (my furry four-legged child).
