Happy Post Turkey Day, folks! Welcome to a new episode of Afronerd Radio'sGrindhouse Saturdays with airings of The Comic Shoppe and Afronerd Radio at 6pm and 7pm, respectively. For The Comic Shoppe featuring Capt. Kirk, Daryll B. and Dburt, check out the latest musings of your "Podcast Avengers" as they discuss the following: our thoughts on the growing quality of online fan filmmakers a la the latest fantasy/non-canon matchup between Darth Vader and Batman, courtesy of Bat in the Sun Productions (wow, was it good!); JJ Abrams' Star Wars: The Force Awakens reboot teaser trailer hits the cyberwebs; and least we forget, the Jurassic World trailer also made its way online; what about that Concrete Park comic...why is it infectious? And lastly, (a holdover from last week), our picks of comics that should be movies/TV series and vice versa.
Next up, Afronerd Radio airing promptly at 7pm. Pull up a chair and listen to Dburt and Capt. Kirk wax politic on the following issues: the fallout from the Ferguson grand jury decision; with socio-political opinions coming from the likes of Don Lemon and Pharrell Williams (and a faltering Cosby legacy), can Black dysfunctionalism ever be critiqued sans political correctness; NY Knick, JR Smith has a unique twist on the origins of Black Friday and finally, in the wake of the shooting death of a 12 year old with a toy gun-are Black deaths (in the media) on the rise or is it business as usual? Call live at 646-915-9620. Imperius Rex, brethren!
