Ziggy Marley’s Marijuana Man Comic Book?

With all the talk the past few months about legalizing Marijuana I thought it’d be interesting to mention Ziggy Marley’s comic book Marijuana Man! It’s weird because I never even knew this comic existed until I accidentally ran into a few Youtube videos about it. So this will clearly be old news to some. However I’m not sure it’s on the top seller list just yet! I could be dead wrong as it was put out by Image, maybe now is the time to get Marijuana Man on the silver screen?!

It looks like Marley had a fun time collaborating on this book (lots of  Spliffs were required to get the creative juices flowing) but I highly doubt he’s destined to become the next Superman, however with everyone talking about pot legalization you never know Marijuana Man just might see his day yet! the weird thing is Marijuana Man doesn’t even smoke the herb! Check this out for the full scoop, it’s surely an amusing little production…

Zero Charisma: Another Tired Stereotypical Nerd Comedy?

I just watched the trailer for the upcoming “Zero Charisma”, a comedy again about D&D. I’ll admit this movie looks like a damn good time, but after thinking about it for a little bit it kinda started to bug me. First check it out:

Looks good huh? Yeah, but really how many more comedies are we going to get about people who either A. LARP or B. Play RPG’s being socially awkward, yet lovable man-children? I think this stereo type had a bit of truth to it like 20 years ago! I know a lot of RPG-ers and none of them still live with their mom. Hell most of them are married or have hot girlfriends / boyfriends! Yeah I get it, it’s a nerdy game, because you’re using you imagination? I find it a lot more stimulating than sitting in front of a tv for hours on end playing X-Box. I think it’s funny too that the “new guy” to the game in the trailer brings a six pack like it’s a big deal! Geez everyone, get over it, these “nerds” have been drinking beer and smoking weed at D&D for decades now! D&D for me often feels like a party and I’ll have you know there’s not a Mountain Dew near anywhere near our battle grid.

So what I’m getting tired of is this continual stereotype in movies ect. about the modern day nerd. Most people that play RPG’s don’t even fit into this bracket. I get that it’s a fun and easy topic to poke at but come on it’s time to recognize that times have changed and you don’t need to be a socially awkward moron to enjoy this type of activity. I think today you find people of all races, social classes and genders enjoy a good game in the world of adult make believe, don’t you?
