The Review: American Gods Episode 7 "A Prayer For Mad Sweeney"


American Gods “A Prayer For Mad Sweeney”

Wow. After six incredible episodes American Gods finally put out an episode that was not just uninteresting, but bad. “A Prayer For Mad Sweeney” was one of the most uninteresting hours of television I've seen in a while which sucks because it seemed to begin as if it were going to be pretty awesome by showing the work of Ibis an Jacquel. But no. It starts off with them working in the morgue and then switches to this long boring ass story about some woman in Ireland named Essie McGowan in the past that is played by Emily Browning.

I play Blockbuster Night Part 1, Lie Cheat Steal, All Due Respect, Talk To Me, Legend Has It, Nobody Speak, Get It, and Call Ticketron. Click here for previous Ross Radio Shows.

The Review: American Gods Episode 6 "A Murder Of Gods"


American Gods “A Murder of Gods”

Another week another kick ass episode of American Gods. This one, “A Murder Of Gods”, starts off not with some weird animated story or something from thousands of years ago but a group of people trying to get across the border from Mexico to the US. I kept wondering “Where is this going?” The group, men, women, and children, survive a river and just when they get to land one of them almost drowns in the water. A hand reaches down and pulls him out. The guy then starts walking on water because its Jesus! Like, for reals Jesus. It was nuts! Then a group of guys in trucks with guns with ironically (or not) bible verses on them shoot and kill them all including Jesus who dies in the most Jesus Christ pose ever.

Theater Whore: Wonder Woman


Wonder Woman 5/10

I decided to watch Wonder Woman despite saying I wouldn't. If you've read my movie reviews this is not something new. I tend to shit on movies and end up watching them. This movie has such a simple premise that it makes no sense to say there will be spoilers. It also has a lot of actors that I won't bother naming because there are a lot of “that guy from that film” character actors in this. The story is pretty much Wonder Woman, aka Princess Diana, played by Gal Gadot leaves Themyscira after a plane carrying Trevor Rogers played by Chris Pine lands there. She saves his ass and then leaves with him to see the world and kill ze Germans.

My Song Of The Week: Steel Punch 3 Ladies Night Theme


The other day I was messing around making a song and ended up trashing it and starting again and ended up making this. By the time I finished I thought "This is for another soundtrack!" This is the start of Steel Punch 3: Ladies Night. One day I will draw the characters for this video game that does not exist. Click here for previous My Song Of The Week.

The Review: American Gods Episode 5 “Lemon Scented You”


American Gods Episode 5 “Lemon Scented You”

American Gods continues to be awesome. Episode five, “Lemon Scented You”, was Shadow finally coming to the realization that the crazy shit happening around him is actually real. But first the episode starts off with this beautifully animated, I am assuming stop motion, short showing a tribe crossing from Siberia to America thousands of years ago led by a woman name Atsula. They worship a mammoth god named Nunyunnini. Over time the people end up in other tribes to the point where the god and the people are forgotten. This leads perfectly to the story of this episode concerning Mr. Wednesday and his fear of the old gods being forgotten.

The Review: Blazing Saddles


Blazing Saddles 8/10

Blazing Saddles is one of those movies where I have heard a lot of gags and seen some of them in other films or referenced but never sat down and watch the actual film itself. I finally did and am glad I did because this movie had me laughing my ass off. It stars Cleavon Little as a prisoner named Bart that is made the sheriff of a small town. Why? Because they figured that as soon as he arrived that he would be killed and then they could then plow right through the town with their train tracks. I laughed my ass off when he arrived and as the town all whipped guns out on him he took himself hostage and went into the sheriff's station. He finds the Waco Kid played by Gene Wilder in his cell hanging by his ankles form the top bunk drunk.

The Review: I Am Not Your Negro


I Am Not Your Negro 9/10

This is not the land of the free, only very unwillingly and sporadically the land of the brave. I decided to watch this tonight not knowing what it was about or anything. I am glad that I did. I did not feel that same sense of hopeless dread I did after watching 13th. I couldn't even rate that movie. This movie, to me, is about American history as much as it is about the history of Black people in America. James Baldwin even points out that his ancestors did not ask or want to come to this country. This is narrated by Samuel L. Jackson. Don't let that turn you off if you are someone that doesn't enjoy him. He doesn't distract from this whatsoever.
