The Wife of Wrath
As long as I breathe I hope. As long as I breathe I shall fight for the future, that radiant future, in which wo/man, strong and beautiful, will become master of the drifting stream of history and will direct it towards the boundless horizons of beauty, joy and happiness!
Leon Trotsky

Let’s all take a moment to imagine how much better the world would be if Rob Ford had seen this ad as a child.

This is what Haiti is both victim and symbol of—this new, rapacious stage of capitalism. A cannibal stage where, in order to power the explosion of the super-rich and the ultra-rich, middle classes are being forced to fail, working classes are being re-proletarianized, and the poorest are being pushed beyond the grim limits of subsistence, into a kind of sepulchral half-life, perfect targets for any “natural disaster” that just happens to wander by. It is, I suspect, not simply an accident of history that the island that gave us the plantation big bang that put our world on the road to this moment in the capitalist project would also be the first to warn us of this zombie stage of capitalism, where entire nations are being rendered through economic alchemy into not-quite alive. In the old days, a zombie was a figure whose life and work had been captured by magical means. Old zombies were expected to work around the clock with no relief. The new zombie cannot expect work of any kind—the new zombie just waits around to die.

Is anyone else getting really tired of the notion that we need to get rid of our derby names to be taken “seriously”? I mean, change yours if you want but don’t try to push some stupid false fun/serious sport dichotomy on the rest of us because I’ve played those “serious” sports and this is such a load of crap and I refuse that shit.

Jungle - Platoon

The dopest kid out there.

Toward the end of the USA Today article about alcohol’s function as a date rape drug, one of the experts who agreed to be quoted in the story noted, “People don’t get raped because they have been drinking, because they are passed out or because they are drunk. People get raped because there is a perpetrator there — someone who wants to take advantage of them.”
Actually the Link Between Sexual Assault and Alcohol Isn’t as Clear as You Think

Wind Coda Lament, a short film for Lou Reed

I made this video project for my digital media class. I was inspired by the filmpoem project, and by Laurie Anderson’s beautiful and heartbreaking words.

(I know the camera is shaky.)

“When I think about all that has happened in my country between the government and the opposition groups, the people who have lost the most are the civilians,” said Adam, an economic student who fled Syria this week to look for work in Turkey.

“We have lost almost everything. Our memories have been destroyed. We are afraid to return to our own cities. The Syria we knew is gone.”

Angela Davis at the University of Chicago - May 2013

"Angela has always found time, and prioritized, work and struggle in organizations for liberation."

Instead, she comes across both in her book and when performing on stages as a lovable younger sister who just wants to play on the big brother’s team. It would be more in keeping with this image to call her brand of women’s liberation faux feminism. A billionaire, one of the richest women in the world, Sandberg deflects attention from this reality. To personify it might raise critical questions. It might even have created the conditions for other women to feel threatened by her success. She solves that little problem by never speaking of money in Lean In; she uses the word once.

The journal I work for is doing a new weekly review segment and I wrote the first one. It’s about a walking tour I went on a couple of weeks ago with my History class. If you’re interested in public or local (Victoria) history you should check it out.
