Not sure if this format will work but let’s see…
I saw Black Panther on Thursday night.
Two thumbs up! Wakanda all the way! Is T’Challa the greatest monarch to join the Avengers? Yup! (Sorry, Thor!) I loved the movie as a solid representative of the superhero movie genre.
And from a diversity and inclusion perspective, I loved it. Why should a white guy be so excited for this rich African hero?
In my continuing mission to expand my creative horizons, I am now part of a podcast.
Yup. Talking. Lots and lots of talking. The Queen loves it. 🙂
Please join my partner in audio crime (Casey) and me on The SuperPodHeroCast as we dissect every superhero movie from Batman: The Movie (1966) to current. We are guys with beers talking about movies with capes.
I think we’re funny. Please take a listen and let me know what you think!
You can find The SuperPodHeroCast at Podbean, Google Music, Pocketcast, iTunes, or just about anywhere you find your pocasts! Visit us on Facebook or at our mini-blog to experience all of the assorted geekery!
This is not going to be comfortable.
Let’s get the unpleasantness and formality out of the way up front. I would prefer to be transparent whenever possible. I’ve set this as my own true north on this blog. It is important to me that I write from a place of authenticity.
We don’t grow or improve from a place of comfort. So some odd feelings are not necessarily bad. I will assume that we are both adults. We eat our vegetables, allow needles to pierce our skin for bloodwork or shots, and generally set our jaws at the sort of things that we have to do as grown-ups.
You don’t have to like it – you just have to do it.
So I – a cisgender male, straight, white, Christian-raised, United States Air Force veteran and red-blooded American would like to talk about the (white) elephant in the room.
Diversity, inclusion, and how that will bring about the fall of Western civilization.
(Except it won’t.)
Getting ready to join David & Danny on the D&D podcast tomorrow as we revisit our lost episode and watch… again… the god-awful Mazes and Monsters! (Why couldn’t the recorder have died in the first five minutes?)
For now take a listen to my guest appearance last year as we watch Knightriders starring a young Ed Harris (with hair!)
