Our next Tournament of Pop Culture has the best Summer Movies (movies based in or around summer) as we came live for Always Forward Media to the Urban Arts Expo at the BottomLine in Soulard, MO. Some true heavyweights of Film on this competition and will you agree with the winner? Did you pick it to go all the way. Well we break it down on this Tournament of Pop Culture.
Mark made a decision not to long ago to come back to the sport of Professional Wrestling and this episode just goes through some things he's thought about on his way back into the business. Mark invited Marcus Boston to join him on this forray into discussion and some of the things he's working on.
But not all is lost....Jen Psaki is the press secretary for Joe Biden. And his team is not taking any guff from anyone when it comes to painting things with a veiled brush. Psaki took it to Steve Doocy from Fox News about his way of spinning a question to make it look evil, when in all honesty it is a common thing. Check out the discussion on between Mark and Marcus on that accord. Plus, Trump taking pot shots and they are failing constantly.
Next up is the fact Mark noticed recently that kids don't have favorite commercials like we had growing up prior to 2010. All they know are the commercials that interrupt their Youtube and some late night infomercials. Marcus and Mark take a dive and discuss these things.
But this finally leads to Mark showing how indelible life really is and Mark challenges Marcus to listen to some classic TV shows themes and figure out if he knew them or not. Do you know them...probably...but it's always fun finding out again!
We have a fun thing we have been doing for years on the Q called the Tournament of Pop Culture.
When we were approached by Always Forward Media for some live shows, we decided to break out the format and try it in front of a live crowd. It worked great and people have been asking for more ever since.
On this first live forray, Mark Bland and Gary Weed host the Best Will Smith Movie as their first attempt. So many great movies to choose from and what Mark originally thought was a easy slam dunk...turned into quite the TOPC.
So listen and enjoy....and what do you think is the movie that the people voted on? Also do you agree? What movie surprised you?
All this and much more in this first ever LIVE Tournament of Pop Culture.
Since becoming partnered with the Always Forward Media Group, Mark Bland and The Q have some cool things planned.
On this episode of the Q, we debut the show called Another Fxcking Monday. Monday's are different for everyone and everyone has differing mondays in their lives. Some people's Mondays start on Thursday, for others it just the typical Monday is Monday....regardless there is a whole week worth of work that has to be done on your Monday!
First up Marcus Boston and Mark Bland discuss Pride months and their value to society in 2021. Who can have one, who can't and why it all matters anyway. This is is a deep discussion on race and religion and all of it, but it's a discussion deep with conversation and worthy of your ears to make you think.
This leads to a discussion on reparations and how they should be handled in the USA, if they happen at all. Who should get paid? What makes this person worthy and that family not? Mark and Marcus tackle these hard hitting questions!
Finally, Mark and Marcus discuss how people and 2021 should be viewed in the annuls of history. Were we better people? Were we worse people? Was all the in-fighting and insurrection stuff worthwhile or a expensive waste of time?
All this and more will be answered on this special episode of The Q!
Parental Guidance is SUGGESTED HEAVILY!
NOBODY HAD HURT FEELINGS IN THE MAKING OF THIS! NOBODY!
On this episode of the Q, Marcus and Cecil of The Soulardians podcast joined Mark to discuss their show and everything else in their world.
First up Mark and the guys discuss their political positions. Cecil focuses much more heavily on the local STL scene when dealing with Politics, where Marcus doesn't put it out there all that much.
From there, the guys discuss Candace Owens and her new push to be Anti-Vax and tell people something special about HPV. Find out what our friend Candace said....
Next, Mark and Cecil start talking about conspiracy theory and podcasting. Of course Rogan comes up and it's so easy to say his name and " You're listening to Rogan!" So Mark gets a unique idea to try and see how it works. Probably will fail, but oh well.
This finally leads to a discussion about the new Marijuana Laws and how Joe Biden and Bloomberg and all the different people are kinda spinning their support for and against the drug as it becomes a larger national focus. Finally, Mark puts The Soulardians on the HOTSEAT! They answer the questions and we all enjoy an interesting cultural discussion that pops up.
