As the title infers, we're a few weeks away from our usual Grindhouse Mashup broadcast, but since we preempted our last show, let's give our audience as much fun, facts and fire as inhumanly (a term Black Bolt can only whisper) possible. So join Dburt, Daryll B. and Capt. Kirk this Saturday at 6pm to unfurl the following pop/pulp/political topics: the highly anticipated Aaron McGruder Black Jesus project raises the ire of Christian Groups; three cast members from Marvel's Ant-man have left the (ant)"farm" ; the team finally weighs in on the NYPD choke hold death of Eric Garner; waxing on an Esquire blog piece entitled Are Blacksuperheroes Good for Black People?; Dburt laments the emergence of rapper, Bobby Shmurda and ponders why isn't "innocence" marketed to people of color; New York Knickerbocker, Carmelo Anthony starts a venture capital firm for tech startups; ESPN sports analyst, Stephen A, Smith dared to give a "deconstructed" viewpoint about domestic violence in the wake of the Ray Rice controversy and gets pummeled on twitter; Expendables 3 makes its way online in HD quality, how will this affect the box office returns (100K+ downloads in 24 hours can't be good); San Diego Comic Con revelations and lastly, was the casting call for the upcoming NWA biopic, Straight Outta Compton really shocking? Call the hosts live at 646-915-9620. And remember, make yours Afronerd, The Comic Shoppe and The Grindhouse!
