I do know those JQuery Blue Angels on Slog's Leader are freaking me out.

Jul 15 AirBuddy commented on Performing Race and a Dangerously White Production of The Mikado.
Gentlemen of the Japanese town of Titipu are gathered ("If you want to know who we are"). A wandering musician, Nanki-Poo, enters and introduces himself ("A wand'ring minstrel I"). He inquires about his beloved, the maiden Yum-Yum, a ward of Ko-Ko (formerly a cheap tailor)

This sounds so fucking wack regardless.
Jul 11 AirBuddy commented on Gaylord Fired from Teaching Position in Tacoma for Being a Gaylord.
As a gaylord whose name has "gay" in it, I can attest that homophobia in my teen years was... pretty disconcerting. Everyone's got your number! That said, I was extremely luck to have had a teacher like this.
Jun 20 AirBuddy commented on Guy Pearce and Chris Evans Struggle with Machinery and Hygiene in The Rover and Snowpiercer.
Did Weinstein end up chopping off ~30 minutes of Snowpiercer for the American release?
Jun 6 AirBuddy commented on Edge of Tomorrow Is the Funnest Tom Cruise Movie in Years.
It probably helps the story was adapted from a successful Japanese sci fi novel rather than some SFX guy's coked out rumination session.
Jun 4 AirBuddy commented on The Woman on the Waterfront.
I agree that the title and creepy-old-man context seem ill considered (Why not just call it "Nuria" !?!), but, at the same time, when I first saw it I felt a sort of guiltily tribal pride in seeing a recognizably Asian face blown up to monumental proportions in the Americas.

Still, I guess it does carry a lot of signifier baggage, and really sort of resembles an Easter Island Moai. Hopefully not a sign we'll all slowly starve to death?
May 16 AirBuddy commented on Scott Lawrimore and the Legacy of Jacob Lawrence (Art at UW Could Be Changing in a Big Way).
Is the UW's collection distinct from the Henry Art Gallery's?
