SORT BY Relevancy
in Pop Culture
It's Monday, and Graphic Policy Radio is back at its normal time. This week we're going a little bit serious, and mixing it with some entertainment.
On this episode:
The nasty side of online geek culture again reared its ugly head as threats were made towards a respected female member of the community. You can read the original article posted here, as well as two follow up articles here and here.
We're discussing our favorite costumes in comic books! That's right, we go over what we feel are the best designs, both in look and actual use.
We discuss the latest hit BOOM! Studios/BOOM! Box series Lumberjanes!
Tomb Raider is up to issue three. We both thought the first issue was good, but how have the latest two issues been? Find out here!
So join us this Monday we want to hear from you! Call in with your thoughts or Tweet them to us, @graphicpolicy.
This week we review "The Last Witch Hunter" starring Vin Diesel, Michael Caine and Elijah Wood.. Shakespere this is not, but it's got Vin Diesel, with a sword...a flaming sword. Did we mention the flaming sword? Tune in this Sunday at 1:30 PM to hear our review of Mr. Diesel's latest fantasy project.
From IMDB: The last witch hunter is all that stands between humanity and the combined forces of the most horrifying witches in history.
It has been the rise of the geeks! But who are they? Are they all just Science Fiction and Fantasy Geeks? Or do other genres like horror, mystery/thrillers, and romance have their geekdom as well and can we all just get along? Join The Write Pack as the explore geekdom, Comic Con, Bouchercon, gaming, role playing games, comic books, and the past and modern age of geekdom—including crowdsourcing films like Veronica Mars, Star Trek Axanar, and Star Trek Renegades.
Also, here is an article from the BBC about D&D as it was looked at 30 years ago, when there was a mania against parts of Geek culture: The great 1980s Dungeons & Dragons panic: http://www.bbc.com/news/magazine-26328105
Greetings to all our supporters (and detractors..what the hey)! Pull up a seat and listen to a new installment of our Mid Week in Review podcast airing this Wednesday at 7:30pm EST-courtesy of the Afronerd Radio machine. Join Capt. Kirk and Dburt as they attempt to shed light on the following topics: it appears that Dburt has additional thoughts about the recent racial controversies centering around the student body of the University of Missouri (the acronym SJW comes to mind); as expected, Black twitter appears to have a problem with not only director, Spike Lee's upcoming Chiraq film but his views on intraracial violence (sigh); Hollywood whitewashing continues with new The Gods of Egypt film (hint: no actual Egyptians were cast) and again, the cyberwebs react; and in a gross case of over-reaction, a 67 year old White woman gets arrested for pulling a gun on a Black man who was asking for a light and we will try to do some house cleaning by addressing issues we failed to tackle from previous broadcasts. Call the hosts live at 646-915-9620.
