Hey folks. Welcome to a new year of Blerd Radio podcasts!
The first episode of 2014 shakes things up a little. For the first time in a while, MJ teams up with GG (occasional contributor to Popblerd, founder of Fight Game Blog) and for the first time ever, teams up with KJ (also an occasional contributor to Popblerd and founder of his own Wordpress site.) Over the course of a fun hour, the trio discusses:
-Why if it wasn't for bad luck (or good Luck, as it were,) Andy Reid would have no luck at all. Wait, does that make sense?
-Hey! Arsenio Hall is back, and he's brought MJ back to (viewing) late night TV!
-Arsenio was not on New Year's Eve, but MJ was still parked in front of the television, and he barely knew who anyone was, with the exception of a noticeably meatier (corset-less) Mariah Carey. Is pop culture passing us all by?
-There might be something to this Arianna Grande chick.
-With the high level of MJ fandom in the room (thanks to MJ and GG,) it's inevitable that there be a short discussion about Michael Jackson. A question from GG's youngest son leads us to ponder the role Debbie Rowe has in her childrens' lives, and also to ponder whether Michael and Debbie (and Michael & Lisa Marie) actually did the nasty.
-Did you know that KJ and his two brothers (The Brothers Johnson?) have a couple of not embarrassing at all lip-sync videos?
-What was that sound? Hey, it was the surprise album Beyonce released last month that KJ somehow knew nothing about.
(Queen Bey also inspired the title of this particular show)
-Speaking of Beyonce, when did she become such a freak?
-Can you really have a believable feminist persona when your music is largely written and produced by men?
-What does "roheblius" (GG's Twitter handle) actually mean?
You can (and should) also follow Kevin on Twitter.
