Podcast of the Day: SIDEBAR interviews Artist Extraordinaire Thomas Blackshear

I’ve praised SIDEBAR before. along with shows such as COMIC GEEK SPEAK, B-MOVIE CAST and 11 O’CLOCK COMICS, it’s a show that I’m always thrilled to get new episodes of.

And this Blackshear episode is a MUST listen. Just brilliant, informative and fun

(it does segue-way a bit into the artist’s faith and I, being a well-known heathen, that part of the conversation does nothing for me.

This idea that God’s going to listen to your request for royalties, or what painting to paint, in a world where he doesn’t give a damn if people get massacred in Rwanda, or children starve in Philadelphia, has always struck me as an uncomfortable combination of misplaced ego, conceit and bullshit.

But hey, I get the same reaction when football players or boxers or any athlete thanks God, for their win, as if God has nothing better to do in a world drowning in blood, than give a damn who wins a sporting event.

So yeah that bit of the conversation while I don’t embrace it, neither do I mind it, people believe what they believe, I let them, and take from the conversation what does work for me. And there is much to take away from this conversation.)
