Hidden Gem: More or Les feat Wordburglar “Hate Rap”

Recently featured More or Les as an In Session With Girth… guest; super stoked to get into his fantastic album Blow the Fuck Up But Stay Humble. And we do…eventually; after hobo ramblings about comics and the Doctor. I ah, sorta got all sidetracked; I got distracted by a bright blue police box. My bad.

Writing: My Geek Hard Review of The Princess Diarist

So my Back Issue Bloodbath co-host Andrew and I were sitting in the Pacific Junction Hotel bar following a podcast recording when Carrie Fisher’s last book came up: The Princess Diarist.

I get the standard celebrity reduction means her death will be strictly Princess Leia; still Carrie Fisher was a fantastic writer. I mentioned so in my post Goodbye Carrie Fisher on her passing.

Thanks Andrew for the opportunity. Be fun to write more nerdness for Geek Hard.

Racism LOL

It’s hard to convey but the racism the media typically reports on isn’t the universal racism visual minorities experience.

A number of my visual minority friends have experienced funny racist encounters. I have a couple. It’s typically somebody so determined to be racist but doesn’t have enough “knowledge” to be properly racist. Talk about ignorance. I understand racism is rooted in ignorance but man be racist properly.

Like put some time and effort into your hate! Have some pride…watch a doc, read a book, brush up on your stereotypes…just don’t go through the motions.

Trailer Alert: Beware the Slenderman

Fake news is not an issue.

National Enquirer has been around since 1926 serving its loyal readership stories on Elvis sightings, earth’s women serving as Eves by having alien babies, dating impending apocalypses and as times and tastes evolved standard celebrity scandals. All useful for prompting X-Files plot points; not overly impactful in real life.
