Storytime with Paul Dore
Welcome to the first episode of Storytime with Paul Dore. If you’re an Open Kwong Dore Podcast subscriber, you might be confused, but please don’t be. Here at Open Kwong Dore Media, we’ve had this evolution in the works for a while. Podcasting is still a new medium and we wanted to switch things up a bit. So, every two weeks, I (Paul) will be sharing a short story with you as well as a segment called ‘Paul’s Picks’ where I tell you about something I am reading, listening to or watching.
There is a fine art to grocery shopping. Never go on Saturday afternoons. Avoid buying produce during the last hour a store is open. The perfect time to go grocery shopping is on Sunday morning, it’s actually a pleasant experience. But this story isn’t about pleasant experiences. It’s about the challenges of the urban dweller once they cross the threshold of the grocery store. Strap in, warm up your carts – you’ll never view grocery shopping in the same way again.
The movie Get Out is about a young man that travels out to the suburbs to meet his girlfriend’s parents. It uses many familiar horror movie tropes, but presents these tropes in a completely new way through the lens of the African-American experience. I don’t think I have quite seen a movie like this before.
