Re: Films

watched "the wild goose lake" which was directed by diao yinan. i enjoyed it. apparently some people like diao's "black coal, thin ice" more. this might be a mundane observation, but i've gotten more relaxed about my movie watching. i used to have these two types that i'd sort al...

Re: Here is ramdomthought!

voting is genocide management or, if you prefer, the reform of genocide. (edit: and sometimes that work is important or all that can be done) (2nd edit: referring here to the US context of presidential voting) if someone votes, fine. if someone doesn't, fine. what is important to recognize is that t...

Re: Random Rhetorical Hypebeast Fashion Thoughts

titkitten thanks for the thorough engagement! sorry that it's taken a while to respond. i agree with the points you've made, which also go along with pham's argument, i.e., i don't think there's a way to think about something like "justice" via the flawed framework of ethical consumerism....

Re: Random Rhetorical Hypebeast Fashion Thoughts

not sure if this is the right place, but Minh-ha T. Pham is someone that i follow to learn more about the racial, gender, and class dimensions in fashion. i wanted to plug some of the things that she works on because it's GOOD. she writes *against* the popular move to locate the deep problems of fas...

Re: Films

"sweet bean" by naomi kawase was incredible for me
"shoplifters" and "our little sister" by koreeda hirokazu are both very good too

Re: Take S. U. T. O. three times daily with food

(sorry that it has taken a while for me to respond) i think you raise a good question: can we be specific about where the issue resides, in this specific case of a white wearing a white-designed pair of cargo pants with the image of an asian woman? at least in the context of the white west (whose sy...

Re: Take S. U. T. O. three times daily with food

this is so hilarious to me. the second any non-white person stands up for themselves, you white folks stop being congenial and ask us to "explain ourselves"

google is available beloveds, just go to search bar & type in the thing that is weighing your conscience down
