Shake Dat 4 Me! (Call Out Culture, Shane Gillis, SNL, Chelsea Hendler, Ancient Queer History Facts, Knives Out Trailer, Shadow Force)

| 0 comments

James is coming in singing, once again, to another... nasty song! Before the Wonder Twins could even jump into this story, it had already been processed, we're talking about SNL's latest hired (now fired) cast member: Shane Gillis. Can racist jokes be funny? Did SNL make the right move? Why did they hire him? Chelsea Handler's new documentary "Hello, It's Me Privilege," is out on Netflix, and according to James it is mandatory viewing for white folks. Nnekay is still on the fence about Hendler, but is she showing how we can people can evolve, and how we must give space for that? Did the new 'Knives Out Trailer' give out too much of it's plot? Who creates these trailers anyways? James has the scoop on old Hollywood. Hold onto your butts because Kerry Washington and Sterling K. Brown are joining forces in a Mr. & Mrs. Smith esque movie: SHADOW FORCE, and the Wonder Twins can't wait! In the main event Nnekay has found a new website that is singing to her heart and walks us through an article by Maisha Z. Johnson, about call out culture: 6 Signs that Your Callout is About Ego and not Accountability- a great check for all of us navigating our activism spaces, and trying our best to make the world a better place. James is still riding high off his last weeks corner about the Moor's and is keeping his Quizlet Korner in the past with some Queer History facts! Did archeologist find a pair of gay lovers buried next to each other from the 6th century? Did Shakespeare coin the term 'Drag'? When was the first porn created? Is Batman older than you think? All this and more on this week's Minority Korner!

Switchblade Sisters Episode 98: 'Picnic at Hanging Rock' with 'The Office' and 'Maniac' Writer Caroline Williams

Picnic at Hanging Rock

Caroline Williams is a screenwriter originally from Atlanta, Georgia. In 2008 she created the ABC series Miss Guided starring Judy Greer and Chris Parnell, about a high school guidance counselor who must relive her unpopular high school days when another old classmate joins the faculty and staff. From there, Caroline went on to write for The Office, Modern Family, Up All Night, BoJack Horseman and others including, most recently, Arrested Development and Maniac for Netflix. In addition to television, Ms. Williams has written on studio features and directed short films, and she’s currently setting up her feature directorial debut. She is also married to fellow filmmaker Drew Goddard, Oscar nominated writer of The Martian and director of Cabin in the Woods and Bad Times at the El Royale.

The movie that Caroline chose to discuss can be found in the video store under "dreamy" - that would be Peter Weir's Picnic at Hanging Rock. She and April explore the makings of a good mystery and how sometimes things are better left unexplained. Caroline elaborates on the importance of writing structure - by both knowing when to follow it and when to stray. And she also talks about the joy of being able to direct something she has written.

You can see Caroline's work all over the place.

And if you haven't seen Picnic at Hanging Rock, you simply must!

With April Wolfe and Caroline Williams.
