We were supposed to review Spike Lee's GIRL 6 this week but it's not available online anywhere. Hard copies are pretty scarce too. Seems reasonably reasonable to Len but Vince is quite put off by the dilemma and would like to share his put-off'ness' with you.

Warner Brothers wanted a sequel to Purple Rain. Prince wanted to make a movie. Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis wanted a check. Graffiti Bridge happened. If that sounds like a recipe for disaster, you're only half right.

Its not often that a skirmish involving all of the Dothraki and ALL of Daenerys' little fiery babies is the undercard of an episode but the Battle of the Bastards proves to be the tension filled blood gushing and curdling vicious epic mess of a throwdown that Game of Thrones has been promising for some time now. Few battles rival the violence, intensity, thrills and kills of this one.

For an episode that pretty much takes place over one day, a whole lot of people use the 24 hours having a reckoning of one kind or another. Westeros. Braavos. Mereen. River Run. One bad day on Game of Thrones.

The passing of Muhammad Ali causes the Tribbles to stop and reflect on his monumental career and reflect on other great ICONS OF POP CULTURE, from which an entertaining donnybrook of an argument is brewed.

Hip. Irreverent. Controversial. Anthony Piper's sarcastic spoof at the Justice League and the foibles of man super and not has been called them all.

Don't call it a documentary though it certainly feels like one. The loose narrative and stilted acting doesn't detract (that much) from this time capsule find from 1983, the birth of hip-hop as told in the subway sprayed hues of NYC in Charlie Ahern and the immortal Fab Five Freddy's WILD STYLE. Special guest, certified hip-hop head DAN DINKINS - The Mayor of the Starting Five podcast - lends the show an air of authenticity on the subject.
