  1. Nigga I’m reading this The Great Divide comic excellent pick Rod. So bloody so intense so Dynamite comics.

  2. What up y’all!

    Okay. so I did it too. Dragged myself through all 13 episodes of Iron Fist. I figured low expectations would save me. They didn’t… But it was hilarious to mock. If you like talking shit to your TV, Iron Fist is the show for you!

    There’s a lot of ways Iron Fist could’ve been better. Yeah, Finn Jones sucked, yeah, the writing was bad, and of course, the appropriation was egregious. For my money, Lewis Tan, the drunk fighter in Episode 8, would have made the show wayy more watchable. Not only does he have the on-screen charisma that Finn Jones lacks, he can actually fight. Plus Danny Rand as an Asian-American character would have added real depth and complexity to the relationships on the show.

    I think that says a lot about why the show is so bad. The lack of diversity in Iron Fist is definitely racism. It’s also bad writing. Better writers would have seen the value in casting an Asian-American actor, but these writer’s worldview and imaginations are too limited. I think the same is true of Doctor Strange, the Great Wall, and Ghost in the Shell.

    That said, I did have a few fun moments from watching the show: First, every time Danny gets the Iron Fist, he does that thing crazy white boys do right before a fight: the shake and growl. Smart people know to leave that motherfucker alone. Second, I appreciate that before Danny gave Colleen that Iron Dick he asked for consent.

    Appreciate y’all. Keep up the good work, and thanks to Karen who stays reading Nintendo. I love it!

  3. Badlands we byke!! Everybody is going to feel how they want about Iron Fist, but can’t say shit about Sunny the gawd! Got the Widow cutting through niggas, and they came through with the master. This is all you can really ask for in a show, and representation all the way through. Cleanse the stink of Taboo from your soul Rod.

    And y’all talking about that Shadow of Mordor sequel just reminds me how much I wish Disney got a hold of those rights. You talk about the best part of the movies being in the scrollers, every time I read Lord of the Rings and they’d talk about all the dope shit that happened back in the glory days and I had another 20 pages to read of these hairy ass hobbits walking? Man, listen. Then we get THIS game? And we can siege a castle with a dragon with that nemesis system? Sheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeit these are the stories I wanted!

    Alright great show as always, and appreciate Rod pulling double duty with these. Hope Kriss got all his salt from that musical episode out on Wednesday. That was delicious grinching.

    What’s up Rod, Kriss, Aaron and maybe Karen,

    I recently had an interesting conversation with an Japanese American nerd friend about Iron fist? He thought that it was was racist that it was a campaign for Iron Fist to be Asian american, not because he doesn’t want Asian characters Cuz he absolutely thinks there is not enough, but because he hates that ppl only “get on board” when it’s a stereotypical Asian story.

    He then said in fact he thinks Iron Fist being white in 2017 makes more sense then the 70’s because with MMA ppl goto/learn fighting disciplines from all over the world and the best Brazilian jujitsu may be Black American and best Mui Tai maybe white guy. He said he wish they made a character that just had an “Normal American” origin Asian, like daredevil or Hawkeye were the example he gave. It’s not my place to judge but I did find it interesting.

    Last quick things what do you guys think about this possible Rated R Venom movie by Sony and the fact that it maybe be a part of the MCU and the ppl behind that Life movie tease that being a prequel.

    Thanks love the show

    Now if google allows people to actually pick which channels they want instead of a pre packaged list of channels, I would totally be down to try it
