We're 2 Timing On Our Listeners! (In A Good Way)-Check this Sun 4 The Comic Shoppe @6pm & Afronerd @7pm: Nerds vs Geeks; Personal Intros 2 Comix; HBO's "Girls"; NYC's KISS-FM No More; NFL Draft (New Slavery?) & More!
After a brief hiatus (and medical procedure for Dburt), The Comic Shoppe and Afronerd Radio return to their regularly scheduled times this Sunday at 6pm and 7pm, respectively. For the first act in our pulp laced saga, listen to The Shoppe's Daryll B, Captain Kirk and Dburt as they shed some much need light on this week's following topics: for our infamous Versus segment, let's just keep it simple-Nerds vs Geeks-what's the difference? And on the notable front-who would be identifiable as nerd or a geek? Are both terms still considered pejoratives?; the team revisits their first introductions into comic books and why the genre still resonates with them into adulthood; although hip hop artist, Q-tip once rapped, "Industry rule number 4,080, record company people are shady," industry rule 4081, undoubtedly could apply to some within the comic publishing business. David Brother of The 4thletter blog tackles such a notion in a recent entry for the Comics Alliance site; on the animated side of things, Dburt discovers (in late fashion as usual) Ugly Americans and The Legend of Korra shows and lastly if time permits, a discussion on the proposed film reboots/sequels for The Fantastic Four, Daredevil, New Mutants and X-Men: First Class......see you all at 6pm.
And now for the pièce de résistance, Afronerd featuring Captain Kirk airs right after The Shoppe at 7pm sharp! Call both shows live at: 646-915-9620 or feel free to leave comments in the chat room at afronerdradio.com. The issues up for grabs on our Week in Review broadcast this time are: Captain Kirk waxes on how he noticed that the NFL draft visuals promote the feel and look of a 21st century slave auction; our thoughts on a recent Jezebel blog piece that centers on the lack diversity apparent in the new HBO hit series, Girls; a married Detroit judge gets caught sexting a colleague with no apologies; a White managing editor at the Black female themed Essence magazine gets shifted to a different division at the mag because of alleged racist and right wing Facebook comments.....but were the comments more politically charged than racist? And if there's still time on the proverbial clock, scientists appear to be developing a space boat intended to sail the oceans of Saturn's moon, Titan. AGAIN...check us out this Sunday!
And oh hell....damn time constraints, we must mention for our Blue Area segment at the top of the show....these special UK "wondertwins"-
Hey Hey Hey...We're Just a Bunch of Two Timers! Check Out The Comic Shoppe @6pm & Afronerd Radio @7pm!
