Can a creative person
have no trauma in his past?
Does head trauma count?
Or a toxic river?
I learned to swim in sludge.

What doesn't kill you
makes you stranger
will try again later.

Birdman review: a surreal and spectacular look at a superhero coming undone 

There’s a moment in Birdman where Michael Keaton’s washed-up movie actor Riggan Thomson stands swaying near the edge of a New York City rooftop. “Hey,” yells a woman off-screen, “is this for real or are you shooting a film?” A film, he shouts back. “You people,” she calls to him, “are full of shit.”
It’s the closest thing the movie — which switches genres at the literal snap of a finger and uses a madcap set of camera angles to tell a story that can only be described as gleefully meta — comes to having a thesis.

IT’S SO META

I was sitting out here this evening when I heard the din of several small bird conversations at once. A flock of starlings had decided to roost on the rooftops across from me. As I snapped this, they all took flight and proceeded to wheel around my building twice before departing altogether. They were just out of reach on all sides, a cloud close up, their black shapes shining, moving together though not in unison. You can see the start of it here if you look closely.

I might have a problem. These may or may not be my eighth pair of Onitsuka Tigers. And my sixth pair of Ultimate 81s.

liartownusa:

LiartownUSA has always celebrated ONLINE SOCIAL JUSTICE WARRIORS. Now, spurred by popular demand and a deep desire to properly honor the internet’s bravest, most productive heroes, I am very pleased to announce the very first LiarTown item to consensually enter the physical world.

First appearing in a December 2013 post and honored by rave reviews from Jezebel.com (“The absolute best cat calendar!”) this now-100% real publication is officially available for sale. 

This full-color, 12” x 12” grid-style wall calendar is presented and shipped in plenty of time for the holidays. Each month features a charming kitten professionally photographed in a heroic pose appropriate to a small cat defiantly speaking out on the hottest social justice issues of the day. A sassy, uncompromising declaration erases any doubts about each precious cat’s passionate convictions, sense of humor, and tough-as-nails attitude! 

Each of these twelve adorable kittens was subject to a week-long, grueling interview process to ensure there was absolutely nothing problematic in its beliefs. Unlike bland, privileged garbage kittens chosen for nothing more than shallow good looks, Social Justice Kittens radiate fierce strength in the face of untold adversity, and all are gifted with a dazzling array of genders and orientations to go with their tiny, oh-so-kissable faces! The patriarchy WILL NEVER accept these kittens! 

After thousands of years of CIS-HET BULLSHIT, here at last is a calendar that DARES YOU to speak truth to power. A calendar which boldly announces to the world that you aren’t going to sit back and let others speak for you. A calendar that holds you up high so others can see you’re able to stand proudly on your own!

It comes down to this: Do you want to financially support the ideals embodied by this unique, functional gift, or refuse to purchase a copy and become a hateful fake ally who actively embraces injustice and the murder of innocents? The choice is yours.

One more time, to be clear: This is a genuine 2015 calendar, printed on big machines and then mailed out by mid-November.

To visit the online store, click here. 

Last but not least, a huge THANK YOU to everyone who supported this project during its formation!

Hello, I w—

Yes I’ll hold.

Yes, I would like to place an order for all the calendars. Yes, all of them. Your entire stock. That’s right. Oh just bill me. Don’t care.
