Jul 15, 2014 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.

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.

Did Weinstein end up chopping off ~30 minutes of Snowpiercer for the American release?
Jun 6, 2014 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, 2014 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?

Is the UW's collection distinct from the Henry Art Gallery's?

Hoooooo you'd still probably be audited in perpetuity like Warhol was for his "Vote McGovern" posters.
