A special mid-week riffin session here, just one hour but an amazing one hour at that. Cedric Yarbrough tells us about his work on Reno 911, his new show "Black Dynamite", his visits to Comic Con, some Boondocks discussions, and a bit more. Fascinating stuff, kids. Get in and get some riff on ya.
Tom Young came on through for some serious hardcore riffin. This session is one for the ages, where Teddy gets paranoid (again!) about dolphins. We get deep in the game with a riff on polite angry muggers, Mitcz makes a case for Mike Patton's vocal skills, Tom tells some fun stories about his dad, and Teddy definitively wins the war on "strenth vs. strength" against Mitcz.
John Wesley rolled through Riffin' Headquarters with some old school swagger. We talk about his early years, and close relationship with James Avery ("Uncle Phil" from Fresh Prince), being the first black actor in the Oregon Shakespeare festival, and oh so much more. We get DEEP into the game, and deep inside our selves. This was a real treat, and you're gonna love it.
Our first 4-person riff, this episode goes to AMAZING depths of Hollywood culture, with Erika Alexander (of The Cosby Show and Living Single) and her husband Tony Puryear (screenwriter for Eraser, artist for Concrete Park). From discussions of so-called "black hollywood", to double standards, to the history of various cultural milestones, and all sorts of riffin' in between. It's eye-opening, entertaining, and funny as hell.
Erik MacArthur came in skeptical, and left as a fan, as we delved deep into old Nickelodeon and his role on Salute Your Shorts, his upbringing in Hawaii, young Hollywood, his recent directorial efforts, his lessons from the past, and we end with a lengthy discussion about the first human trip to Mars as a reality show. You don't wanna miss this window into awesomeness.
