Episodes

Tarantino's Cartoon History

2/24/2021
Matt and I discuss the films of Quentin Tarantino as well as a clip from Douglas Laine at Zero Books discussing Adam Curtis' new series. I attempt to relate all this to the subconscious desires of the mass murderer/terrorist. Matt does a good job of defending the stale and all-encompassing Marxist interpretation of all things. See: https://nonsite.org/django-unchained-or-the-help-how-cultural-politics-is-worse-than-no-politics-at-all-and-why/...

Intersectionalism is a Stalinism

1/28/2021

All Cops Are Dialectically Inevitable

6/8/2020
Corey's making me write the descriptions now I guess. I use the fact that Corey is sort of not-totally-white as a shield to defend myself from charges of "class reductionism" as I half-assedly summarize my cool vicarious grandpa Adolph Reed and some other people in a probably futile effort to take the lens off race and refocus it on class in the context of ongoing protests against police brutality citations: https://catalyst-journal.com/vol3/no3/the-economic-origins-of-mass-incarceration...

Of Primus and Word Choices
