More Nerdist Contributors!

The family is growing! I feel like a plump termite queen. Oh, the Thanksgiving we shall enjoy!

Please welcome three new Nerdist contributors:

Jay Fralick – FILM
Jay enjoys films and records a podcast to and from work/school.

Sandra Daugherty – SEX
Yes, I think a nerdy sexpert is a super-keen idea. Sandra sold me a fake penis for a sketch I did at UCB (really, it was only for comedy–I MEAN IT!) and was so funny I asked her to blog for me.

Chris Glass – DESIGN
Chris, aka, the designer of this site, is a bigshot over at Wire & Twine and is a brilliant man with a brilliant eye.

Hugs for all!

    Excited about the new contributors! It would be nice if you included them in your ‘About’ section, since I’m having a hard time keeping track of them all. Just a list of names, titles, and maybe a sentence or two about them. Plus, you should probably acknowledge them as actual members of the site.

    “plump termite queen”

    Ew. I don’t even know why, but that phrase made me clinch my ass. Literally. I have no idea why. I’m pretty sure I should be concerned.

    That said, new contributors are exciting and I am looking forward to their posts. I’m a huge fan of interesting people talking about interesting things.

  3. Sandra Daugherty says:

    Kevin, I’m touched (intellectually). Let me know how it goes!

  4. Chris Hardwick says:

    Sandra’s post is going up today! It posted by mistake yesterday. You and your frenulum will soon be flush with information.

  5. Kevin says:

    What happened to Sandra’s “frenulum” post which appeared briefly on the site before this announcement? I had high hopes that it was going to totally save my night last night, but by the time the wife got home, the post was gone…

  6. Jay Fralick says:

    Thanks so much to Mr. Hardwick and the whole Nerdist community. This is an opportunity of a lifetime. I hope to serve you well, fellow nerds.

  7. Patti says:

    I must agree with Hardwick here, setpixels…are you really that OCD about the spacing between letters? I think it looks fine. This whole website is a work of art. So glad Chris Glass is now a contributor.

  8. Chris Hardwick says:

    hmmm…not seeing that setpixels! So I guess my answer is, I don’t know!

  9. SetPixels says:

    What’s with the kerning on your Nerdist header logo?

  10. I can’t WAIT for the Nerdist Christmas party. Who’s going to drink too much and start asking people to sit on his lap? (I won’t fall for it again this year, Hardwick!)

  11. Patti says:

    Aww, I want a hug!! Welcome to the new contributors!! You NEED a food nerd…I made you a Nerdist cookie, remember? LOL! j/k I do know a lot about food and cooking and recipes and junk, though.

  12. RickL says:

    Oh man. This is becoming such well rounded website and a daily destination for me.

    Thanks Chris and welcome new contributors.


  13. CJ says:

    How does one get consideration for such an honor?

  14. jessica says:
