Greetings to our stalwart fanbase! Well, one of the bricks from the foundation of the house that nerd built has been removed-actor, Leonard Nimoy passes at 83. For obvious and appropriate reasons we will discuss Mr. Nimoy's career and his placement in the pantheon of American (if not, international) popular culture. Join Dburt, Capt. Kirk and Daryll B. for a new episode of The Grindhouse Mashup, courtesy of Afronerd Radio airing this Saturday at 6pm. Additional topics to be disassembled and then reassembled in our metaphysical transporter room are: speculations on what big announcement Robert Downey Jr and Marvel are slated to make in the next few days; our thoughts about the internet NSFW version of the Power Rangers short; after Gotham's grisly episode involving Jada Pinkett Smith's Fish Mooney character, can the character continue in the series and is there a possible transition to the print world?; hat tip to Shadow and Act for highlighting an upcoming African themed animated movie entitled, Bilal starring Lost's Mr. Echo (or the more fearsome Adebisi of Oz) himself, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje; as great and as crucial the movie, Selma may be, Dburt ponders other historical events that are ready for a cinematic "closeup"; more hair politics after the Zendaya-Rancic televised fallout; Monique vs Lee Daniels vs Hollywood and lastly, more on entertainment entrepreneur, Byron Allen's lawsuit against Time Warner cable (incl. Rev Al "black pawn" allegations). Call the hosts live at 646-915-9620. And in the immortal words of Spock-"once you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth."
