My Summer Lair Chapter #98: Does It Hold Up?
In a conversation that revolves around nostalgia, does it hold up? It’s a scary question to ask. Because it could lead to hurt…or disappointment…I mean what if doesn’t hold up? Unless you’re optimistic like Sean Jordan, better known by his stage name Wordburglar than asking does it hold up? It’s all about getting back into the things you adore and make your heart sing.
Over the course of this conversation we cover comic books, movies, his two podcasts, Do You Still Like This? and Weekend At Burgie’s, comic book shop experiences, and his latest – and to me – best album: Rhyme Your Business.
If you haven’t heard Wordburglar’s Rhyme Your Business, as a comic book-slash-movie-slash-hip hop nerd, you’ll dig it (see how many references you can identify). I open this conversation with Mic Heckla, then break it up with Rental Patient, and finally end on a high note with Damage Control. Yes!
(We don’t really explain it in the talk, but “Damage Control is a fictional construction company appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. The company specializes in repairing the property damage caused by conflicts between superheroes and supervillains.” Fresh, right?)
