    Episode 123: Rubble Kings

    Episode 123: Rubble Kings

    Can you dig it? I SAID CAN YOU DIG IT!? That shit from that “Warriors” movie? Real! At least stylistically. Stuart steps in with Bob to discuss more 1970s New York at a time when white flight, and some city construction, segregated the Bronx from the rest of the city. From the rubble (literally there’s a lot of rubble) rose gangs, some more outrageous than others. All looking cool as fuck except for that swastika shit. We’re talking about the Shan Nicholson documentary “Rubble Kings” and yeah…we can dig it. The struggles of poverty that produced extremes of violence and a path to cornerstone genres of music. Maybe South Bronx gang style jackets are a good merch idea for the show? Maybe some official Documenteers guns, yeah? We should do gun ads.

    Shorties 54: Zion

    Shorties 54: Zion

    It ain’t just a mountain, folks. It’s also a badass wrestler that can fuck you up despite the fact that he has no bottom half. That’s Zion. His origin is sad, but this ain’t a tragic short documentary. Eldridge and Bob ask way too many questions regarding the Netflix short documentary “Zion” by director Floyd Russ. Please don’t fight us Zion. We won’t win. Also….Lauryn Hill. Don’t find us. Circus peanuts? Don’t find us. Hemorrhoids? Don’t find us. Wrestling? Find us. Zion…it’s a movie.

    Episode 122: The Black Power Mixtape 1967-1975

    Episode 122: The Black Power Mixtape 1967-1975

    Feel the power! The Black Power! Who can we get to help us out with this? How about the blackest country in Europe….SWEDEN! This week Eldridge and Bob dive into the history of Black Identity and the Black Panthers and all things great and sad beyond that all told through the eyes of the Swedish mews media during the time. We’re talking about the documentary “The Black Power Mixtape 1967-1975” by Göran Olsson and it’s quite the flick. Best/Worst of all? Everything feels as relevant today as it did then. Rent this flick and then maybe join us. Keep on Doccin’

    Shorties 53: Black Sheep

    Shorties 53: Black Sheep

    Week two of February shorties and Eldridge and Bob thought maybe it’s time to get really really f*****g sad. Unfortunately, Chris Farley is nowhere to be found in this one. A 10 year old Nigerian boy is stabbed in London and a scared Nigerian family move to Essex to escape the hub-bub of big city drama. Of course we’re talking England outside of London so what is this Nigerian teenager seeing? Whiteys. Whiteys and their janky faces. Cornelius can only take two much of the racism until he decides to join up with those who hate him for the color of his skin. Eldridge and Bob discuss the Ed Perkins documentary short he made for the Guardian called “Black Sheep”. (Hence the Chris Farley reference.) Layers and layers of sad. Even the Pillsbury Dough Boy is crying. Cry laughing actually. That thing is f*****g scary now that I think about it. But not scarier than racism.

    Episode 121: Strong Island

    Episode 121: Strong Island

    Long Island or the Deep South? They might have more in common than you think. Angela picks up the true crime baton to join Bob on a sad tale where the attempt at justice barely exists. Yance Ford refuses to led the narrative of his late sibling, William Ford, be controlled by anybody else. When William was shot, unarmed, in a Long Island garage it seemed very clear very quickly that the shooter in this scenario was gonna get slapped on the wrist with a pillow. Long Island courts paint a narrative of William that Yance refuses to accept. A new look at a decades old tragedy. Sad as fuck. We maybe cried in this one. Our mascara really ran. You can find this on Netflix if you want to be sad with us. Keep on Doccin’

    Shorties 52: Period. End of Sentence

    Shorties 52: Period. End of Sentence

    Just what the world needs. Two dudes discussing periods. Punctuation and Menstruation. We’re not sure where the usual women co-hosts are. My guess, as a man, is that they’re on their period? (Waits for laughter. Receives none.) Eldridge and Bob unite like a lame Voltron to discuss all Shorties for the month of February and to start us off we go to a small village in India where mentioning of that time of the month results in giggling and pretending you’re talking about something else other than girly bodily fluids. We tackle the Netflix short documentary “Period. End of Sentence” by Rayka Zehtabchi. You can’t just walk into small-town shops in India and find pads and tampon, so who do you call? The Pad Patrol and their Uncles think they’re making diapers or something. Men…they say the darnedest things. Ruby and Jackie be trippin’
