Call in to speak with the host
First there was the Super Bowl and now The Grammys are upon us! So this time we'll make an attempt at competing (but not really) against the legendary music show with our ever popular Grindhouse edition of Afronerd Radio. Pull up a seat and listen to The Comic Shoppe this Sunday starting at 6pm. Join Daryll B., Dburt and Captain Kirk as they pontificate on the following "nerdic" fare: the Latino Review reports that the Hulk may end up with a Planet Hulk/Avengers tie-in story or the silver screen at some point in the future; a recent Robot 6 article puts focus on the dearth of Black writers at DC and Marvel; is the JLA movie in distress?-a writer is let go and Paul Dini (Batman Animated Series, Justice League Animated) states that he wouldn't be interested in writing a live action version and lastly, a discussion of race and and animation-the Shadow & Act site highlights Ralph Bakshi's Coonskin as well as Warner Bros' controversial cartoon past. Call the hosts live at 646-915-9620!
Next up, Afronerd Radio bats second at 7pm eastern. Captain Kirk and Dburt wax on the following topics: rogue LA cop, Christopher Dorner rampages vowing revenge against a police force he deems corrupt; quite a bit of nastiness on the part of Facebook for their refusal to remove a racist page; more on Roots Vs Django with the cast of Roots; the HufPost's Black Voices has an interesting op-ed by Clarence Haynes regarding his fondness for comics-specifically, the character Storm from The X-Men and lastly, The Root denotes the historical origins of the "Blerd" (Afronerd sounds better, doesn't it?). Whew....so check us out post haste!
It's good to talk.
