any recommendations for nice/sturdy tote bags for ~£50? Looking for a replacement for my gf's battenwear tote - super nice, just doesn't deal well with abrasion :/ particularly looking for anything with the option to wear cross-body (i've seen that the current battenwear ones have this, but preferab...

Re: Ask a question, get an answer

Bearing in mind baggy trousers among younger demographics came 'back' firstly with Dickies, I think it's fair to say skate culture was a pretty significant factor there - not saying there weren't others, but saying outright 'no' is wrong imo.

Re: THEORY

jylt : I've actually not read a huge amount of her work so its difficult to compare but I found them really, really compelling in how they drew attention to their temporality (extremely long takes, very slow 'pacing' - if you could call it that) as a means of (in Da Silva's words) making a film 'wi...

Re: THEORY

On the topic of Da Silva, does anyone have a link to her collaboration films with Arjuna Neuman, 'four waters' and 'serpent rain'? Been struggling to find a way to watch them (even legally!!) since they were screened at my uni last year (followed by a discussion by Da Silva and Neuman!!), and would ...

It's trying to explain the differential experience of power (along gendered, racialised etc. lines) through Zygmunt Bauman's idea of 'liquid modernity' and this specific quote from Deleuze and Guattari about 'hydraulic power'

Re: tote bags

Has the tote bag been largely supplanted by the sling? I would posit: yes shocked and outraged to hear this kind of slander in what should surely be considered a safe-space for the most ephemeral form of bag. (as a user of both though, I feel like there's a level of intent implied by wearing a slin...

I've been wondering for a while about Adorno's 'no art after Auschwitz' thing (?), and Arendt and Agamben's insistence that no man-made situation will ever compare to the conditions of the death camps in the Holocaust - does this come from an ignorance of the transatlantic slave trade or?

Re: THEORY

The work of the theorist and the insights we can gain from it are always separate from that theorist as an individual. I think we can all agree that it's lame and corny, and stupid, when people attempt to interpret, say, a text, through the individuality of the author, so why would we do the same t...
