Am I hallucinating or are the holidays quickly encroaching upon us? Well, there's always The Grindhouse to listen to as the Yuletide festivities approach your world in the next few weeks. As custom. The Grindhouse "double sonic feature" airs promptly at 6pm with The Comic Shoppe (hosted by Daryll B., Capt. Kirk and Dburt) and Afronerd Radio batting cleanup at 7pm eastern standard. For The Shoppe, we will be discussing the following pop/pulp topics: now that Netflix and Marvel are simpatico, what are the chief components that will be necessary for the proposed street level hero shows to work? ; watch the internet explode as a "Black Robin" makes a brief appearance as a future (meaning non canonical) character set to appear in an upcoming issue (#27...the irony) of Detective Comics; a Wonder Twins movie starring Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher? Pray this is a joke; something we left off the table last week.....DIVERSITY....dovetailing off of the Black Robin story....what about the Muslim Ms. Marvel? and lastly, just as Sleepy Hollow addressed race in last week's show will Almost Human follow suit as one of the protagonists is a Black robot? Or has racism dissipated in 2043? Call live at 646-915-9620.
And then there's Afronerd Radio broadcasting at 7pm! Check in with Capt. Kirk and Dburt as they continue the Mid Week show's topics..(i.e.-the NJ lottery winner that's getting sued by his ex, the French Justice Minister getting called a "monkey," etc) and lastly our thoughts about the Renisha McBride case-what the hell happened? Check us out starting at 6pm! Nuff said!
