Fang: The Movie

Fang: The Movie

October 28, 2020

My guest didn't let Asperger's get in the way of writing and directing his own horror movie.

Duration: 23 minutes.

Richard Burgin is the writer and director of the upcoming horror movie, Fang.  

I ask him about what it was like to overcome the social awkwardness normally associated with Asperger's.  We chat about how he landed a cult icon in horror movies as one of the actors for the film.  He also gives a sneak peek at a future film that it's in the works.

It's a great discussion with a man who had a plan and executed it.  Enjoy my Q-on-1 discussion with Richard and please feel free to share this as to inspire others.

COVID-19 has put a huge clamp on some of the holiday traditions in this country. Halloween is the day where it's cool to be a little fearful of things. You watch a scary movie, visit a haunted house or something of that nature. 

But what about the things that are scary in real life (IRL)? 

  • What will happen after the presidential election? 
  • Will there be a race war and/or rioting? 
  • How afraid of you of being laid off in this volatile economy? 
  • What is it like for a black person when someone calls the cops on them? 

Real life horrors will be the topic of discussion on this week's live call-in Talk 2 Q Radio Show! "No experts. Just opinions."

What Is Breadcrumbing?

What Is Breadcrumbing?

October 6, 2020

There are baiting and dating tactics that some people call "breadcrumbing".  

It's done primarily on social media and breadcrumbing is a tactic that people use to string you along until they can decide if and when they will ever actually ask you out.  It's basically leading someone on by sending them sporadic messages and/or commenting on social media posts in a way to keep you interested in them.  However, it's always vague and non-committal.  

Tonight, we'll discuss how to recognize breadcrumbing examples and not fall into that trap.

Also on the show, Trump is back in the White House after a few days in the hospital.  However, so many people connected to him have tested positive for COVID including his press secretary.  There are a ton of theories on this and I know that my Show Legends will not have a shotage of opinons of their own as we discuss Trump in the news once again.

Missouri police officer, Lemar Gordon, shares his views on the issues that have been ongoing in the United States regarding police brutality. 

This Q-on-1 is unlike many of the others that I've done.  Instead of just asking questions, I had a conversation with Lemar and shared my opinions with him.  

Although we didn't agree on everything, we did learn from each other throughout the course of the discussion.

We discussed things from the militarization of the police force to Black Lives Matters vs. Blue Lives Matter.  

I look to continue having discussions with him in the future to help bridge the gap between the police and citizens.

Grassrootz is the only black-owned book store in Phoenix.  I talk to the manager about the importance of the business to the community.

Brother Ali manages the Grassrootz Books and Juice Bar in Phoenix, Arizona.  It's a place created out of necessity when you listen to his story.  Not only does Grassrootz offer a physical location in which to edify your knowledge, build networks, as well as enjoy an atmosphere of peace and like-mindedness, but it's also an online haven for books.  

During this pandemic, people are unable to get out as much without risking their health, so the option to peruse their collection of books relevant to communities of color is still available at this time.

He and I discuss why black history and culture is more relevant than ever in 2020.  We talk about Blackout Days and the pros and cons of it.  He also talks about a book or two trending in the black community.

Get Woke! Go Broke!

September 24, 2020

This is the mantra for a lot of people who are tired of the unity movements going on across the country.  Is it fair or foul for them to feel this way?  Can you get "BLM fatigue" from the constant talk and signage that is almost everywhere you look in some cities?

And speaking of "fatigue", yet another high profile case yields unsatisfactory results as the three cops who shot up Breonna Taylor's apartment and killed her escape serious charges.  I'll ask my Show Legends tonight about their opinions on another person of color who dies at the hands of police negligence.  The fight against racism in America suffers another set back.

September 20, 2020

Crystal Hickerson rejoins the show to talk about what everyone else has been discussing on social media: "Cuties".  A Netflix movie that tells the story of an 11 year old girl who joins a dance group with her friends.   Sounds great on the surface, but the dance group is more of a "twerk team".  The movie poster alone brought ire across the country as people starting to complain that Netflix was sexualizing pre-teens.  But, did they actually watch the movie?  Probably not.  Luckily for us, Crystal did and she breaks down what the movie is actually about and if people should give it a chance or not.   Enjoy this latest episode of the Talk 2 Q Radio Show!  "No experts.  Just opinions."

September 13, 2020

Mr. Scott Hopkins started teaching in the California school system in the early 1970's.  The way schools are run now have evolved quite a bit since then.  And because of that, teaching strategies have evolved as well.   Did students change more or did the teachers do so?  We talk about the stress that teachers face daily from uncooperative parents and non-supportive administrators.  I also inquire about how he thinks the COVID-19 situation is being handled. It's a great conversation with someone, who is retired, that can give his unfiltered opinions without any worries of backlash from the school system.  You'll truly understand why teaching is important and why teaching is rewarding.

Skip Bayless vs. Dak Prescott’s Depression

Skip Bayless vs. Dak Prescott’s Depression

September 11, 2020

Normally, it's a Skip Bayless tweet that upsets folks, but this time it was live and on the air on FOX Sports.  Dak Prescott, quarterback of the Dallas Cowboys, recently revealed that he was depressed over his brother's suicide back in April.  A lot of people don't know what depression looks like.  Was Skip out of line when he questioned Dak Prescott's mental toughness because he chose to express himself publicly? Brandy J. Flynn is a mental health specialist as well as a mental health analyst in sports.  She was the first person who came to my mind when I wanted to discuss this topic.  So, I'm bringing to you professional's point of view on whether it was fair or foul for Skip to belittle Dak as the leader of his team because Dak showed vulerability.
