Atlanta, Boston, etc.

 Nerdcore Peeps,


Just got back from our screening at the Atlanta Film Festival! The city where all streets start with “Peachtree.” Like Peachtree Road which is not to be confused with Peachtree St.., Peachtree Creek or the more historically violent Peachtree Battle, and, of course, Peachtree Peachtree.


I had a terrific time in Atlanta meeting the nerdcore fans and begging them to buy t-shirts. Thank you for not punching me in the face for my repeated t-shirt pimpage. You are a tolerant and Fruit-of-the-Loom loving people. 


But guess who was in the audience? This is cool: The editor and associate editor of the show… AQUA TEEN HUNGER FORCE!! Isn’t that cool? I told you it was cool! One of them (Lear Bunda) had an animated short in the festival called “Hitler’s Brain.” Lear was way rad and is as animated/ridiculous as his job and name suggest. Fun fact about Lear: he’s been a vegetarian his whole life. Hmm… interesting.


His boss at Aqua Teen, a dude named Jay Wade Edwards, made a feature film called “Stomp! Shout! Scream!” – which he affectionately refers to as a “beach town horror flick.” Does that pique your interest? It piqued mine! The good news is that you can buy a DVD of the movie here. Fun fact about Jay: He thinks breezy beach towns are good filming locations for horrible scary creatures!


Because Lear had to run a really mundane and totally boring errand involving a fax machine, a dot-matrix printer, and an abacus, I got to see the Adult Swim offices. Evidence of my alibi is duly provided with the photograph below. The dot-matrix printer is not available for questioning.


Guess what’s next? THE INDEPENDENT FILM FESTIVAL BOSTON! Tickets are on sale and show times are below. BUT, there’s an interesting twist: MC Frontalot and Prince Paul are recreating the magic in a post-show party Sunday night. How were you able to make this happen, Negin? I hear you ask. We got a sponsor! ITA is making it happen. By day, ITA designs software, by night, they support films like Nerdcore Rising. And bless them for it!


The Front & Prince show sorta coincides with the festival’s closing night party (Sunday April 27) so there are some hurdles to getting in. HOWEVER, I have access to 50, count ‘em FIFTY tickets that will get you in to the party FOR FREE. Those free tickets entitle you to: 1) hang out with me… all right, not enticing, I understand, but what about 2) watch MC Frontalot rap his face off… getting warmer right? and what about 3) dance to Prince Paul has he does his remarkable thing in the DJ booth… of course that will hook you in but it doesn’t stop there because 4) you can eat and drink stuff. Awesome right?


How do you get such a free ticket?
1) Email me by April 22 with your name
2) I’ll put your name on a slip of paper PLUS ONE, throw the paper in a hat-like object, the first fifty to be drawn from the hat-like object, will get in to the party.
3) I’ll email you back letting you know that you’re getting a ticket to the party.
4) BUT you can only pick up your ticket at one of the screenings. Which means, well, you might as well see the film while you’re at it.


It seems like a convoluted four-part process but I promise it will work. Hopefully.


I’m leaving massive details below along with pictures and a link to a review we got in Nerdlanta.

AFI Dallas Wrap Report & Atlanta Projections

Dear Shareholders,

Second quarter Nerdcore Rising screenings at AFI Dallas brought tremendous good fortune for Nerdcore Rising Industries, both in terms of brand equity and fun equity.


Sold out houses at the screenings led to an unprecedented upswing in committed Dallas-based fans, insuring future gains in area screenings.


The post-screening MC Frontalot show drew fans into the upper-indices of joy and rapping-alongedness. This is largely due to the total quality management of film sponsor and post-production house REEL FX. Wendy Teague (Supervising Manager of Cool), Kathryn Harper (Managing Director of Awesome Services), Brandon Oldenberg (Vice President of Unbelievably Chill) and Chuck Peil (Executive Vice President of Ridiculously Helpful) provided support services that cannot be quantified at this time because they were: OFF THE CHARTS!


Other items of note: Nerdcore Rising Industries would like to thank Moxygecko & company (from Austin) and the Stephenville 5 (from Stephenville). They imported a set of friendly eyes and enthusiastic/well-functioning ears to the screenings. It is our hope to continue outsourcing “love & support” operations to those two companies.


Retail consumption of t-shirts enjoyed a 1000% gain in Dallas up from zero (… ah… because we had never sold them before). Our retail efforts were so well-received that the web division of Nerdcore Rising Industries will also make them available for sale in the coming day. Literally, like tomorrow.


Future investments include the Atlanta Film Festival where screenings on April 12 & 15 are expected to parallel or even out-perform AFI Dallas. For shareholders interested in going to those screenings, please visit for ticket information.


The Auditor’s Report of Details is below.


Sincerely Yours,


Negin Farsad
President & CEO of Nerdcore Rising Industries
