We're back in full effect, folks! Let's really keep it tight, truthful and terse. Welcome to our Grindhouse Saturdays broadcast with The Comic Shoppe at 6pm and Afronerd Radio batting second at 7pm EST. For The Comic Shoppe segment, listen to Capt. Kirk, Dburt and Daryl B. defrag the following hard drives: Bruce Timm's Batman 75th anniversary animated short, Strange Days hits the syberwebs; latest reports affirm that Marvel has their cinematic universe planned up to 2028-and some are concerned; Dburt receives Dark Horse's Sky Man, Max Brooks' Harlem Hellfighters and Gail Simone's Leaving Megalopolis books in the mail; Amazon acquires digital seller, Comixology; is it strange for Battlestar Galactica to be re-imagined for a third time?; and a Kickstarter campaign is underway to raise $50 million to bring back Stargate: Universe for a third season..whoa. Call the hosts live at 646-915-9620.
And then after The Shoppe, there's always Afronerd Radio airing promptly at 7pm. Check out Dburt and Captain Kirk as they discuss the following current event connected topics: looking at the other side of "Chiraq", Chicago's Urban Prep Academy achieves 100 college matriculation for the 5th consecutive year; and as Dburt had predicted, because of high profile African success stories, some American Blacks wish to be African (hint: too late); Stephen Colbert replaces David Letterman in 2015 for The Late Show but some are unhappy with such a "safe" choice and lastly, Shadow and Act highlights the Ad industry's first Black "Mad Man," Roy Eaton. Another stellar broadcast!
Again folks, this upcoming episode will be one for the annals of history! Afronerd Radio welcomes legendary MC, Brand Nubian member, music producer, actor and self-described Hip Hop conservative, Lord Jamar to our Mid Week in Review broadcast. We will, of course, discuss his past, present and future endeavors as it relates to his place in the pantheon of Hip Hop culture. Always an engaging and insightful figure, Lord Jamar has been quite outspoken pertaining to the current state and influence of commercial Hip Hop music. THIS IS NOT THE EPISODE TO SLEEP ON. And there's still more show (i.e. Is French president, Hollande actually getting lessons in American Gangsta Hip Hop posturing?......Does the Russian presidential advisor, Vladislav Surkov, actually have a portrait of Tupac next to Putin in his Kremlin office?) as we readdress some of the topics left on the table from this past Saturday's Grindhouse airing. Call the hosts live at 646-915-9620. Excelsior!

Well the event has finally arrived and it was incredible! Of course, we're talking about the Friday release of Captain America: The Winter Soldier. It's also the top of the month and that means it's time for a Grindhouse Mashup broadcast, folks! Join Daryll B., Capt. Kirk and Dburt as they merge genres and topics (a la The Comic Shoppe + Afronerd Radio) in their own inimitable fashion this Saturday starting at 6pm EST. The issues to be micro-analyzed and decrypted are: the crew's opinion of Captain America 2; Dburt lauds over another Image book, Ghosted (think Ocean's 11 meets The Haunting or The Ring); Comics Alliance asks if Netflix's upcoming Iron Fist TV series should be given to an Asian actor (vs a White actor which is Marvel canon); a recent study affirms that White gamers go through changes once they play as a Black avatar; a panel at Seattle's Emerald City Comic Con debate the concept of realism in comics; our thoughts on DeSean Jackson's alleged gang affiliations and new gig with the Redskins; a homeless mother gets a break after leaving her children in a car during a job interview; we finally discuss the Ebony vs Black Conservatives kerfuffle and lastly, after Kwasi Enin's octadic Ivy League triumph, there's another young man of color who was accepted to 5 Ivies and both are starting to get internet scrutiny.....is it time to re-invigorate The Black Ivy League? (yes....colloquially, it exists). Call the hosts live at 646-915-9620! Imperius Rex, brothers!
As you count down to the day of the release of the Captain America: Winter Soldier film, Wednesday's Mid Week in Review of Afronerd Radio will be an excellent "lead-in" to the movie. Join Dburt and Captain Kirk at 7:30pm eastern as they shed light on the following issues: more on the (unfair) ostracizing (and potential boycott) of L.A. Laker, Kobe Bryant (his friend, sports analyst, Stephen A. Smith appears to be the voice of reason); a young man of Ghanaian descent bears the distinction of being accepted at all eight Ivy League schools simultaneously; an industrious Facebook youth is being sued by Ferrari for actually helping the famed auto manufacturer; an Ebony magazine editor gets into a twitter beef with Black Conservatives; a new study alleges that White video gamers act more aggresively after having used a Black avatar during gameplay and lastly The Root attempts to give assistance to a White reader that is reticent about wearing a Black culture ("Chocolate City") themed t-shirt that represents her cycling group (a slow news day?). Call in live at 646-915-9620.
This is great show right here...
