Join us on Sunday August 10, 2014 at 1:00-3:00 p.m. (EST) for another enjoyable episode of WORDS MAKE PEOPLE with your host Michael "Mikal" Saahir along with Co-Host Sisters Sabrina Kaba and Tysha Ahmad and Brother Mustafaa Abdullah.
WORDS MAKE PEOPLE addresses current events from an Islamic perspective.
Our two main topics on August 3rd will be:
1. How did Prophet Muhammed relate to Christians?
2. The new television series: "Black Jesus". Is it blasphemous or good old satire?
3. Addressing the poison in young urban contemporary music.
Additionally we'll discuss the situation in Gaza and the possibility of a lasting peace.
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!
In August, cartoonist Aaron McGruder, creator of the infamous Boondocks comic strip and cartoon series will premier a new show titled "Black Jesus" on the Cartoon Network's Adult Swim time slot. The comedy parody show features a live action series of Jesus as a black man in Compton, CA. This show has brought about good and negative publicity for AS and McGruder, but how should black pastors engage the show and the viewers? Is the show any more offensive than Jesus Christ Superstar, Tyler Perry's Madea series, or even George Burns' O God movie series?
In this episode of The Black Geeks Radio Show we talk about:
Some news and trailers out of San Diego Comic Con
Adult Swim and Aaron McGruder are launching a new series called Black Jesus. We'll talk about the trailer and the controversy.
Lastly, we talk about how personal video is impacting crime and justice.
On this week’s edition of Scottscope Talk Radio, the roundtable will be discussing Aaron Mcgruder’s departure from The Boondocks. Should the show continue on without him? Will it even be worth watching? Might it actually be better off without him? Given that the show bears relatively little resemblance to comic strip it was based on, would it be fair to question his actual level of involvement up until this point? Was his abandonment of the property inevitable? What of his new show, Black Jesus? Given the controversial nature of his humor, is McGruder truly a master satirist, or just a petty, self-hating provocateur? Is the animated iteration of The Boondocks truly meant to provoke thought, or is just a mean-spirited minstrel show that denigrates Black America?
We’ll also be celebrating the 20th anniversary of the Above The Rim soundtrack! Is it truly one of the great movie soundtracks of all time? Is it really any better, or more memorable, than its cinematic namesake? Can its massive success be attributed solely to “Regulate? Can even its most ardent fans name any of songs that weren’t released as singles? Considering the film’s subject matter (Harlem Streetball, the famed Rucker Tournament), is G-Funk overrepresented on the soundtrack?
We’ll also be having yet another discussion on the progression of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Will Captain America: The Winter Soldier truly be, as the advance buzz seems to indicate, it’s best film yet? Does the second Avengers film have a chance in Hell of matching the original? Is Marvel studios spreading itself to thin with its proposed plan of releasing more than two movies of year? Could audiences become weary of the brand?
Welcome to our Grindhouse Saturdays broadcast (at 6pm EST), as presented by Afronerd Radio and Afronerd.com. We have yet another stellar program for our ever vigilent listenership when noted author, graphic novelist, screenwriter and educator, Brandon Easton (Watson and Holmes, Thundercats, Shadowlaw) stops by for a tete a tete. Your "Podcast Avengers" (Daryll B., Capt. Kirk and Dburt) will also address the following issues: cartoonist, Aaron McGruder gets kicked off of The Boondocks; the Powers TV series finds a home on Playstation; Fox studios has dates for FF2, Wolverine 2 and a mystery Marvel film and if time permits, two VR glasses for video game systems may be hiting the market soon. Call the hosts live at 646-915-9620.
For our second act, listen to Afronerd Radio featuring Captain Kirk and Dburt at 7pm. The topics slated for decryption are: Dburt's alma mater, Hampton U has a conference on the media and the Black family; more on the upcoming biopics of James Brown and Jimi Hendrix (Get on Up and All is By My Side, respectively); the team opines on two documentaries-the upcoming Afraid of Dark and the previously released Bill Duke vehicle, Dark Girls and lastly, is Long Island NY's use of Strat-Com technology bringing us closer to a Minority Report world? The fun starts at 6pm.....Imperius Rex!
