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.

RE: Mary Kills People – Episode 1

Rob Gaudette

Girth Radio Presents…

I consider myself a TV, Movie, Video Game, Comic Book and just overall pop-culture junkie. I am of the generation that grew up watching TV programs evolve and change into the great spectacles that they are now.

The last 15 years has seen a shift away from conventional television broadcast companies (NBC, Fox, ABC, CBS) and towards the creative freedom afforded to shows by Netflix, HBO, Showtime and FX. This has resulted in some seriously great television. Mary Kills People is hoping to join that crowd of amazing TV shows that we all tweet about during and after each episode.

Trailer Alert: Becoming Warren Buffett

This is weird but not really. Big Sean’s well penned verse in Detroit Vs. Everybody reminds me of Warren Buffett. Oh you know saying that out…I guess that is weird. So Be It.

My New Mr. Miyagi

Walking through College Park food court when I happily witness a senior citizen walk out of the grocery store with a full bbq chicken…you know those hot ones you bring home for dinner to feed your family?

The old man shuffles his way to the nearest table, youthfully unveils the plastic dome top and withdraws a fork and knife.

And proceeds to mash into the entire bbq-ed chicken. Oh…Good Gravy!!

The audacious dynamic wisdom of our elders…please sir: teach me; I want to learn and know how to live like you!!

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.

Hidden Gem: Tom Chaplin “Hardened Heart”

Damn…the honesty of a junkie!

Tom Chaplin (Keane’s frontman) has returned (in more ways than one) with a solo album The Wave.

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.

In the US all my brown friends and family experienced 9-11 fueled racism…don’t matter if they’re Indian, Persian etc. Come on…that’s so lazy it’s offensive.

Doesn’t the KKK have helpful flashcards to separate races? For a racist organization that’s been around for at least a hundred years aren’t they more organized? Or they just hatin for the sake of hatin?

I’m engineers and pharmacists; not convenience stores and taxi drivers! Take a few minutes and brush up on your stereotypes… find out which brown people drive cabs, which open convenient stores, which are computer superstars…we’re not all the same. Different cultures, different ethnic foods etc.

In many sad ways globalization left a lot of racists flat footed. Progress…
