WE can’t have sh*t!! Black Panther edition

so there’s an artist that drew Black Panther (T’Challa) as a white dude, comically dubbed “T’Chad”. The artist, who won’t be named, asked, they changed Nick Fury and Heimdall from white men, to Black characters with no problem, what’s the big deal with this? and there are plenty of white people that live in Africa, so what??!!

The problem is, it was a big deal when Marvel changed those white characters. Marvel (and DC) fanboys lost their collective minds when it happened. Nevermind you were getting Samuel L. “Mother-Fxcking” Jackson as Nick Fury (I’m still waiting for the gag real or outtake of him in character dropping a MF), and Idris Elba as Heimdall (white fanboys Moms are still having hot flashes about him in character too…I see you Barbara!!), but you were also getting very accomplished actors in these roles.

also, and MOST IMPORTANTLY, the problem with the imagining of T’Challa as “T’Chad”, is that Wakanda existed, and survived colonialism ie white people in Africa, because they hid in plain site. that artist admitted he hadn’t seen the movie, he obviously never picked up a BP comic book, or even did a google/wikipedia search on the origin of the character to know this. but the whole country of Wakanda exists as a “what if” for colonization.

I mean, yeah, have your “artists interpretation”, but also, remember your interpretation (in this case) will be met with the very anger and confusion you’re currently staving off

Vintage Dodge Charger found in Barn

landscape-1449850188-screen-shot-2015-12-11-at-110618-am-copy For car collectors, it’s equivalent to finding a Picasso in the attic or a letter from Abraham Lincoln in their grandfather’s papers. A rare vintage car has been sitting in a barn for decades.

Next month in Kissimmee, Florida,a 1969 Dodge Charger Daytona is set to go up for auction. The car has been sitting in a barn in Alabama for more than 40 years.Rare-69-Dodge-Charger-Daytona-found-in-barn-expected-to-fetch-150K-at-auction

There were only about 500 of the cars ever built. The Charger going up for auction still includes most of its original features, including a white wing spoiler and the original 440 Magnum engine. The car has only 20,553 miles on it and was running until about four years ago, according to a story about the car in Hot Rod magazine.

The car was originally purchased in 1969 by a local judge for his wife, according to Mecum’s auction site, which is handling the sale.

Hot Rod reports it was then purchased in 1974 by an 18-year old future anesthesiologist for $1,800. It was that owner who painted flames on the front of the car to trick it out before a trip to spring break in Florida.

That owner recently sold it for an undisclosed price it to Charlie Lyons, who runs a car restoration shop in Irvington, Alabama. It is Lyons who is the one selling the car at auction.

The car is being sold pretty much in the condition it was found in the barn, with peeling red paint, rust, and torn up bucket seats inside.

It is estimated to go for between $150,000 to $180,000, according to Mecum’s. A restored version of the same car was sold at a Mecum auction in January for $900,000, according to the auction house.

Aston Martin DB5 crash photographed by Jon Baxter / MEN Media

Oh the humanity!

There are some cars in the world that we just cannot stand to see get hurt as if they are living, breathing beings of automotive beauty. The Aston Martin DB5 is one such vehicle. Its classic Aston Martin design and notoriety as a James Bond car have made it a very sought-after and highly-valued automobile.

That’s why this crash that occurred near the Manchester airport in the U.K. was so horrifyingly awful to see.

A father and his four-year-old son were out driving the Aston Martin DB5 when an accident occurred with a Vauxhall Astra. The Aston Martin was heavily damaged and resulted in both passengers being treated for injuries at the hospital.

The iconic Aston Martin DB5 was valued at approximately £1 million, making this quite a costly accident that insurance companies will just love handling.

Thankfully there were no serious injuries that resulted from the crash, however the loss of an Aston Martin DB5 stings quite badly for us automotive enthusiasts.
