Uses of the Erotic:The Erotic as Power, Audre Lorde Reading

listen to audre talk to you in her own words it’s so much more powerful to me this way.

"the erotic offers a well of replenishing and provocative force to any woman who does not fear its revelation, nor succumb to the belief that sensation is enough"

So I saw Edge of Tomorrow: A 5-Point Review

1. Tom Cruise wasn’t insufferable. Emily Blunt was almost a real character. But I think heterosexual tension had a bigger part than either of them.

2. Interesting how in the perhaps-not-so-distant future, even science fiction hasn’t dealt with drone warfare as a reality and the only weapons advances are human prostheses.

3. Why are tentacles the sign of evil aliens?

4.The dying-reset button trope is a not-at-all subtle metaphor for video games. Taken together with point 2, I seriously think this movie might be about the lag in between how we imagine war might currently be, and how it really will be/is. This film is a hiccup.

5. Is it just me, or has there been an influx in movies with a Watchmen-style plot where the only way to ensure the world getting along with/not killing each other is the fear of a non-human threat?

Conclusion: Bad-ass yoga, tentacly aliens, and time-travel, oh my! Politics too, I guess.

I always forget how to talk to people who think that heterosexuality is the status quo and how that’s both self-evident and politically neutral.

Today, before a French-Israeli client told me that the insane slaughter in Gaza is just Israel defending itself, our security guard asked me, “is it true that during September 11th, 50,000 Jews didn’t come to work that day because they knew about it?” After I said “No, there were definitely Jews who died in the World Trade Center,” he replied “Yeah, I told my wife that. I told her I would check with the American guy I work with. I knew she was wrong. You know, she calls Jews ‘the landlords of the world,’ like y’know, how they control everything.”
