    Latest Blog Droppings by Daryll B Including an Open Letter to The Oscars!



    Once Again, Daryll is Sour AfroBlog....


    Dear Academy Awards,
                                         


    You complain about not getting as many viewers as years' past but a) you diss "popular" movies and their fanbases openly... the very movies that are CARRYING your industry at the moment & b) you continuously go out of your way to ostracize certain races and movies in your nominations. Then wonder why you lost viewers in the ratings. I love James Gunn for striking back at you smug idiots for all the potshots taken at Superhero Movies. Yet, you gave your big award to Birdman, which wouldn't exist without them. And half of your presenters on stage either are already in or going to be in superhero fare.
     
    Speaking of which, the actors and actresses could give all the political and social stances in their victory speeches that they want. Did any of them actually touch on this point? Nope. All were content that an award to Common and John Legend would be enough. Not. Even. Close.
     
    There are still valid reasons why the MTV Movie Awards and the Spike Movie Awards mean more to me than you do. I just said that MTV and Spike TV meant more to me than you do. You don't think that is a problem? Look and learn you self-centered hypocrites. But you take too long and the world passes you by. Remember that as you continue your platitudes.
     


    Sincerely,

    -Nice to see Supergirl forging their own identity and not riding on her fabled cousin's coattails

    *Sigh* I guess I should have seen that CBS wouldn't want to greenlight this and bank on a new core cast around Kara/Linda. There had to be some Superman cast/gallery crossover but... this is an opportunity lost to make Supergirl her own hero in another medium.
     
    -JJ's mind games continue...

    ..and the mad rush to collect and examine all the Star Wars rumors begins for all Jedi & Sith out there...
     
    -My motto and mission statement continues from the past 2 years...

    Unfortunately, the Power Rangers controllers didn't find the dark humor associated with their fan film and had it pulled. However, James VanDerBeek and Katee Sachoff do a great job as older versions of the cheesy heroes and it was made by the same gentleman who was behind Punisher: Dirty Laundry.
     
    The Dragonball Z pilot is still available and is made by the same folks who were behind the recent Street Fighter live action web series. It is based on the History of Trunks movie and looks cool as heck. It available at the link above and on YouTube....
     
    You have the resources , vision and ability, just do it! This is the Age of Creation Folks....
     
    -Begin the countdown. Get your button pushing fingers ready....

    The trilogy's end? Might be the true test of the game's legacy....
     
    -Sometimes we at The Comic Shoppe and AfroNerd Radio are ahead of a story....

    I got to give credit to Mr. Illidge for bringing up Icon. We totally didn't mention the Milestone Superman in our coverage and in case you didn't hear it....

    The interview is fun and around the 1:30 mark is where we get into the idea of Waid's Strange Fruit with show stalwart Bison4Life.
     
    A brief one this week as computer problems and personal issues keep me grounded. Thanks for reading and Until Next Time, Keep Fantasizing!
