laura parnes’s “county down”. saw this at film society and was transfixed by this hyperconsumerist world so very like american society today. the way these teenaged girls spoke slow like molasses and their guy friends acted like immature pesky bugs invading the girls’ drug project. it’s a very pathetic lifestyle to live, counting on synthetic things that make you feel better than people can, because people are less reliable. it sadly makes sense.

27 video files in one after effects timeline that i’m compiling, and i still have to fit a few more in : )
i make wacky little scenarios that even i don’t understand, please don’t put my work down because you don’t get it. why don’t people ever question their own lack of ability in understanding something? why is it always the artist’s fault?
and then Taylor Swift bought a house on Watch Hill and Rhode Island let out a collective shudder and THIS DEAD FUCKING SHARK WASHED THE FUCK UP ON SHORE.
let this be a lesson to you, Taylor: you may be lulled into a false sense of security by the obscene wealth surrounding your seaside getaway, but the rest of li’l Rhody is watching, and we are not pleased.
If Taylor was smart, she would have bought the Superman Building.
us rhode islanders sure are territorial!
A quick editorial cartoon about the intersection of self-pity, entitlement, rape, territoriality, misogyny and fear of women. You see it all over the place online in the form of Men’s Rights Activists (of whom there are a few reasonable non-misogynists), Men Going Their Own Way, Pick Up Artists, and dudes touting the “Red Pill”, because The Matrix is a good movie. Look any of these up if you have the stomach for it. These are extreme examples, but watered-down forms of these ideas are everywhere.
In lurking their blogs and youtube channels for a while, I’ve noticed that beyond the standard patriarchal chauvinism there is this deep fear of women - what they will do to me, how they will reject me, how they will use me, how they are changing society in a way that does not favor me, how they are making men into something I don’t like, how they are making themselves into something I don’t like, that they won’t give me what I want, and that they won’t give me what I think is rightfully mine. This goes beyond fear of feminism- this is fear of women at its purest. And that, to quote a puppet, leads to anger and hate. It’s sad.
I am a feminist. I think there’s enough ice cream to go around, but it does mean those of us with 3 scoops might have to give one or two up. Also, The Matrix is a fun movie but probably not anything you should be basing a philosophy on.
some work-in-prog stills of my video final:
i am purty excited about this baby, it’s inspired by red light districts - i’m going for a viewing-women-through-windows effect. still need to shoot some lollipop + makeup scenes plus a 2channel scene of me spitting from one screen and catching it in my mouth in the other.
