Afronerd Radio Takes A Break This Sun. But Returns Fresh This Wed at 7pm. Don't 4get The Comic Shoppe Tues But Let's Talk About What's Coming Up!
Don't worry, folks....just because we're resting doesn't quite mean that we're resting on our laurels! Its true that we're taking a break today but we are sincerely working on some issues behind the scenes to insure that we give our supporters (and detractors) the best and informative online programming we can muster. Case in point-our upcoming interview with former Maryland Lt. Governor and ex-Chairman of the RNC, Michael Steele. We are working on an amenable date but within the next week or so, Mr. Steele will be gracing our program to discuss some exciting forthcoming projects he is involved with-i.e. a prospective commentating gig with MSNBC and a contributing editorial position for the Washington Post's The Root.
For Tuesday's Comic Shoppe (7pm eastern, for the uninformed and uninitiated), the crew will deliberate on the expected pulp/pop cultural fare: more news pertaining to Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight Rises with an ominous poster of Tom Hardy as Bane as well as more actors coming aboard for this final franchise film effort; although NBC's Chuck gets a modified 5th season despite moderate ratings, vocal fan support ultimately kept the geek themed series afloat-are there other series that should have been saved as well?; in the world of video gaming, the heavily touted LA Noire is released and in the vein of Super Street Fighter is a Super version of Marvel vs Capcom under consideration?; more on who will fill the shoes of the late graphic novel writer/animator, Dwayne McDuffie as it relates to minority representation in comics; thoughts on NY's Big Apple Comic Con and lastly our favorite graphic novel picks from the previous weeks.
And then there's Wednesday's Afronerd Radio show! Depending on Chairman Steele interview scheduling, the regularly scheduled broadcast will highlight the following issues: science talk on the prospect of a real Steve Austin-a young man is preparing for an amputation of his hand for a bionic replacement; Apple's Cloud music service is delayed although industry analysts predict that the company will still maintain being the preeminent digital music distribution source; Dr. Cornel West causes quite a stir with what some deem to be personal attacks on President Obama's lack attention toward African-American concerns and by extension Obama's alleged lack of Blackness (the stuff refuses to stop); it's hot on the block in Syria with upwards of 900 protesters having lost their lives since anti-establishment unrest in the started and lastly, after President Obama, what are the prospects for another man of color to rise to the highest office? Could Herman Cain be that man? Don't forget to listen to Afronerd Radio (aka Afronerd Featuring Captain Kirk) at afronerdradio.com!

And just for feces and laughter...check out the juxtaposition between underrepresented progressive hip hop and minstrelsy:
