  1. Hey Weirdos (I can say it because I’m 1/16th weirdo on my Mother’s side)

    About YouTube. YouTube is a motherfucker. My girls are 9 and 12 so YouTube Kids does not interest them anymore, but they’re obsessed with YouTube. The older one watches these Gacha Life mini movies which are basically user created movies using Gacha Life characters, and the younger one watches this gamer that plays Roblox, named Its Funneh. It’s Funneh isn’t bad because she seems to respect the fact that her audience is kids and acts accordingly. The Gacha Life mini movies are a different story. They start one way and seem innocent, but the story may veer into some very disturbing areas. Some of the stories depicted can be very personal and detail some horrendous trauma that the creator went through. That may be cathartic and all for adults, but my 12 year old can’t handle that shit. The frustrating thing is that there is no way to filter for content. It’s all or nothing. Meaning if you filter for stuff tagged for kids, you can’t get the how to videos for when you need to fix the washing machine. My only solution has been to encourage more Netflix. They’re now on season 2 of Stranger Things so that’s been working to some extent. I know Stranger Things is for adults, but truly the worst part about it is the cussing and scripted stylised fantasy violence. There’s no step by step recounting of a horrific sexual assault by a cartoon character. So I prefer that to the unregulated wasteland of YouTube. Plus I know they be cussing and rapping along to Blueface at school anyway.

  2. Hey guys, love all the shows; including Nerd-Off, even though I don’t consider myself a nerd. You guys often discuss what you’re reading, so I was wondering if any of you get into sci-fi novels by Black writers like Octavia Butler, N.K. Jemisin & Nnedi Okorafor? I read 2 of Octavia’s novels years ago; really enjoyed Parable of the Sower. I just tried reading The Fifth Season by N.K. Jemisin, but just couldn’t get into it. If any of you have read any of her books, I’d love some feedback on how to navigate the collection. I heard that The Fifth Season was supposed to be the prequel for other series. Her writing is beautiful, but I just couldn’t follow the story line because it was a little too abstract & confusing.

  3. We back!! Kevin Feige really hit Sony with those Thanos bars at the negotiation table talking about their failure led them right back to him. My man announces he’s doing a Star Wars movie and Sony jumps back with the baby, baby, please! And nigga I just had to read that sentence again, Kevin Feige producing Star Wars. The game cheating!! Already have Chris Evans and Brie Larson say they wanna be in this shit too. What a time.

    But I am absolutely disgusted by all these streaming companies and I’m glad someone is here to talk about the scourge of their pricing! Wait a minute, you’re saying I don’t have to sign up for all of them just because they exist and I can pick and choose which ones I want? And it’s still cheaper than cable? Well shit then what are people complaining about then? Shit, since we’re behind the paywall I halfway hope they slide that Confederate show on HBO Max and don’t tell anybody just so the curious can find out.

    And I know it was on NBC, but at the rate the CW is bringing folks back into this crossover, I just want to see my nigga The Cape get the call! Let me believe in miracles dammit!

    P.S. We know this Hickman X-Men shit is ridiculous, but without spoilers when I tell you the petty in me enjoyed them shading Beast like that. It made my heart happy. That nigga Hank is the worst!

    Alright y’all appreciate the dope shows as always.

  4. Hi yall, felix here. And no not “that” felix. God I wish pewdiepie was actually capable of not being trash for 1 damn second and stop giving us respectable felix’s a bad name.

    On cannon busters, rod you are so right. I ain’t seen not one peep outta folks about it other than folks I know who worked on it and the writers and actors. I swear if it gets cancelled I’m gonna be so pressed. I really enjoyed it and wanna see how it wraps up. Netflix ain’t shit for waiting until the literal day it came out to start tweeting about it. Also atronnblack lead gets a side eye from me too cuz they only retweeted tweets where one of the writers directly @’d them promoting it. Hoping for the best in any case.

    Onto more positive stuff. Yo I just read about spidey being saved. Congrats to all of yall that like these new movies. I’m still on my agenda so I cant publicly admit to liking these movies (because it’s not miles as spidey), so I am for sure not looking forward to another fun spidey flick. No sir. I would never.

    Next, I am really looking forward to Tynion’s batman run. I havent really enjoyed kings run, not because it’s bad but I think I just realised I enjoy the bat family way more than I do the bat himself which is why I absolutely loved Tynion’s detective comics run. I know this’ll probably be Bruce heavy from what Tynion has said but I at least enjoy his writing more than kings so I’m excited to see of he can turn me around on Bruce. I dont know what’s going on with the black batman rumours but if it’s TRUE I dont understand why you wouldnt just reboot the batwing comic. And not with Luke fox, I’m on my African agenda so I want the original batwing, my dude, David Zavimbe back. I still can’t believe DC replaced him with an American version so quickly. Like we have so few African characters of note at DC and he was gone after a year. Hurts man.

    Ok lastly, my comic book store guys let me know ironheart was cancelled and I was so sad man. At least eve let us know she’s working on something with riri coming up so I told them to preorder that for me whatever it may be. The book has been so fun. Also, and before I finish, apologises to kriss but just to spread the latest gospel of the legion of superheroes. Yall, our boi bendis came through and we’re getting real legion rings with the first issue. I preordered 2 for me and my little sister. We are gonna be completely insufferable around our parents Haha. Real excited and I hope yall at least check out the first issue. Felix out.

    My dude. I watched everything you talked about on this show. That Katie Sackoff joint started mad slow but I really enjoyed how the season ended. It was really interesting. Dr Stone is very well done. I love the science lessons in every episode. 2 shows if I can suggest for a future walk, Dark on Netflix and Demon Slayer Kimetsu no Yaiba on Crunchyroll. Dark is about time travel. It starts off slow but it’s really good. And Demon Slayer is really good. It’s about a kid who’s family is killed by a demon except his sister who was turned into one. Now he’s trying to figure out a way to turn her back.

    Anyway that’s all of that. Love the shows.

    So, I’m going to brag on myself. I AM speaking at NYCC on professional day so maybe Kriss will change his mind and come. Seriously, it’s a Librarian’s panel. My government name is Rakisha. Lol.
