    Scottscope Talk Radio 3/21/2015: The Coronation of King Kendrick!

    in Entertainment

    On this week’s edition of Scottscope Talk Radio, the roundtable reviews Kendrick Lamar’s third album, ‘To Pimp a Butterfly.’  Is it the album of the year?  Has Kendrick set an impossibly high bar that his peers can never hope to reach?  Is it a genre bending masterpiece, or is it woefully overrated?  Are people judging the album based solely on its own merits?  Does the largely positive response to this album signal a new direction for mainstream rap music?  Why do people insist on drawing comparisons between K-Dot and Drake?

    We’ll also be having yet another of our penchant freestyle sessions!  Any and every topic will be up for debate and discussion.  Is Damon Dash a misunderstood visionary, or a snake oil selling windbag?  Have we truly seen the last of Suge Knight?  Will the live-action Attack on Titan films be as good as either the manga or the anime?  Are superhero comics hopelessly sexist and misogynistic?  How many of the aforementioned topics will we be able to discuss in the space of 120 minutes?  Tune in to find out!

    Author Park Cooper visits Reverie Radio

    in Books

    Park Cooper was born in Texas, where he currently resides, after a period of time living in Kent, Ohio, where he got his Ph.D. in literature. He writes with his wife Barbara Lien-Cooper at their creative studio Wicker Man Studios, and together they have written comic books and graphic novels, including HALF DEAD, a creator-owned vampire graphic novel that was published jointly by Marvel Comics and Dabel Brothers Productions. He also helped write one very short tale for his wife's digital comic, GUN STREET GIRL, drawn by Ryan Howe. While co-writing a manga project for Tokyopop shortly before that company's exit from the field, he and Barbara switched to also editing and adapting manga, such as V.B. ROSE for Tokyopop, NORA for Viz Media, and many, many more. Most recently, Park and Barbara started writing prose novels, such as PICARESQUE, a comedic fantasy novel about a court jester forced to live by his wits in a dangerous world. Park teaches English classes at a college in Austin, Texas, and is the editor-in-chief of the independent comic book company Septagon Studios. A comic book project he wrote, SWIPE, illustrated by Bryan Randall, came out last year from Angry Viking Press.

    Embracing numerous musical genres and a fresh blend of traditional Turkish and Western rock music, hard rock quartet maNga are ready to storm the U.S. Feat singer Ferman Akgül, guitarist Yagmur Sarigül (aka “Yamyam”), drummer Özgür Can Öney and bassist Cem Bahtiyar, the Turkish group have drawn Int'l acclaim for the infectious sounds on their three albums, which one could compare in spirit to Linkin Park or System Of A Down. They made a big noise representing their from home country in the 2010 Eurovision Song Contest, have over 3M Facebook followers and have drawn the attention of Billboard, the Huffington Post and MTV Europe. The band name maNga possesses a dual meaning. In Turkish, it refers to a unit of ten men in the army, and in Japanese, which was their chief inspiration for using the word, it means graphic novel. "The name was Yagmur's idea, and from that moment 12 years ago we were dreaming about having connections to other countries," declares Özgür. The foursome finally got to play before a NA audience at the SXSW festival in TX in March, and they play CMJ on Oct 18th. 3 months after they formed in 2001, the group competed on the TV show Sing Your Song, which is the Turkish version of Star Search.  Their 2nd place showing ignited a creative spark that lead to numerous gigs in Turkey while writing the original tunes that comprised their self-titled debut album, which was released via Sony Epic in Turkey in December 2004. The album and its videos spotlighted an amalgam of heavy rock, hip-hop, pop and Turkish music.The album sold more than 180,000 copies in Turkey, making maNga the 1st band there to get gold certification on their debut album. The song “Bir Kadin Çizeceksin” appeared in the EA Sports FIFA 2006 computer game soundtrack, which exposed them to European audiences who loved their music even if they did not understand the words.
