    Marvel CEO donation under fire. Iowa Caucuses. #GOPDebate. MJ get whitewashed.

    in Entertainment

    Tonight we need to talk Politics. With the Iowa Caucuses hours away, there is a lot at stake for the political future of this US. With the gravity of this situation being higher than Goku's training environment, The Black Geek break tradition and go full Politico. 


    One issue with a geeky politico twist this week was the donation of $1M dollars by Marvel CEO, Isaac Perlmutter to a GOP candidate's vetern fundraisers. This raised a lot of eyebrows in the online community. We explore this from a few angles.


    Soooo... someone decided to cast Pop legend Michael Jackson as a white man. Without missing a beat, the online community was quick to express their dissatisfaction with said casting. Is it okay to cast the GOAT as a different race in the name of art, or pigment, as some would have you believe? Let's talk about Race Bending.


    Of course we'll have our Sith News segment as well, with the lastest news from Geekdom.

    Episode Forty-four... Come out, come out...Whatever you are.

    in Hobbies

    Geeks...


    There are soooo many of us.  With so many different passions that Geekdom has literally begun to splinter into small subcultures of fandoms.  But is that where we want this whole thing to go.  Are we, the original outcasted, ready to push away our brothers and sisters just because their geekdom doesn't match our own.  I say NO.  And so does Wil Wheaton and Felicity Day.  Their latest Internation Table Top Day was a huge success and even if you're not a board gamer all were welcome to come out and be a part of this celebration of Geekiness. We will have reviews on several stores and how the day went.  Talk about some new games played and some new friends that we made.


    We will also be sharing with you our thoughts as to the new Star wars HD, Game of Thrones, Gotham.  Plus, every Geek has a fantasy day or days they would love to do...well tonight we will tell you ours and then you can tell us yours.  So, light a fire, preferrably in a fire place or chiminea, grab your favorite snuggle partner and let's DOOOOOOOOOOO THIS!!!!!!

    in Pop Culture

    It's Monday night, and that means a brand new episode of Graphic Policy Radio, the show thay mixes politics and comics. It's been a bit since we discussed recent releases and general news in the comic industry, so it's potluck Monday!


    On this episode:



    We talk what we've been reading and discuss hot comics and graphic novels you should check out, and what you should skip, and what we're looking forward to!
    Emerald City Comicon was this past weekend with lots of announcements and hints as to what's coming up. We round up the news and talk about what you need to know.
    Geekdom and politics clashed this past week and the largest game convention in North American Gen Con spoke out about Indiana's SB 101, and threatened to leave the state if passed. We lay it out there as to what you need to know.
    The past few weeks also saw controversy. We discuss the recent round of harassment as well as the controversy over DC Comics variant cover to Batgirl #41.


    We discuss all of that and more this Monday! We want to hear from you. Call in with your thoughts or Tweet them to us @graphicpolicy.

    New Grindhouse Mashup, Courtesy of Afronerd Radio Airs Saturday @6pm EST!

    in Politics Conservative

    It's amazing that there's only 47 days, 20 hours and 40 minutes as we're draft this episode description until Avengers 2 hits the theaters, but who's counting?  Welcome to the latest episode of Afronerd Radio's Grindhouse Mashup where the worlds of geekdom/blerdom, politics and current events collide and more importantly, the "uncanny" Daryll B. sits in for the show's entirety. The topics scheduled to be atomized are: Playstation's Powers TV series hit the net and the ubiquitous game consoles last week and we give our impressions; our thoughts about DMG Entertainment purchasing the film rights to Valiant Comics' intellectual properties; just what is all the hoopla over the Apple watch and can anyone below the late Steve Jobs' pay grade afford it?;  a few geek incidentals to chop up (TV's Supergirl costume, Preacher casting, SHIELD, Arrow and Flash predictions, Fish Mooney exits Gotham, the Daredevil Kingpin centric trailer) ; Dburt plays devil's advocate (shocker!) regarding credit scores being used for screening job applicants; Chappie and Focus reviews; Univision host compares FLOTUS to a character in the Planet of the Apes (wow); in more #BlackLivesMatterOnlyWhenWhitesAreInvolved news-a young Oakland mother is gunned down while trying to shield her kids from gunfire and lastly, #BLACKBUFFOONERYTRUMPSWHITECRIMINALITY-Dburt notices that the NY Daily News provided a front page spread for a brutal Black girlfight in a Brooklyn McDonalds but the Mafisoso 55 kilo drug bust story was relegated to a small mention on page 10! (continue watching Empire at your own peril, folks).  Call the hosts live at 646-915-9620.
