Nationalism of one kind or another was the cause of most of the genocide of the twentieth century. Flags are bits of colored cloth that governments use first to shrink-wrap people’s minds and then as ceremonial shrouds to bury the dead.

You work on broadway??

Yes — hopefully not for the long-term. I recently got a position with a certain hospital run by…. an institution that deals in the affairs…. of veterans…… and begin training in the next week or two, which promises to be eye-opening, since I’ll be representing the patients themselves and will be privileged enough to talk with them about their concerns with the establishment and their care on a person-to-person level.  Couldn’t ask for more.

What do you feel strongly for?

For?  About?  Lest I get caught up in semantics —

I feel strongly for passionate people. People who answer their own prayers.  I feel strongly for people with resolve, who make and attend to their own resolutions.  I feel strongly for people who shout the things that need to be said. I feel strongly for the people who shine light into the darkest corners, and aren’t afraid to sit there and exist in that darkness when the light flickers off.

I feel strongly about the proliferation of scientific racism. I’ll effin die on that hill, trying from my end to tear it down. I feel strongly about the military industrial complex; I think about it constantly throughout the day, because I feel I’m reminded so many places I look, spaces I inhabit.  I feel strongly about religion — the way the ‘universality’ and ‘utopia’ spoken of in many (most) established religions promotes and rationalizes genocide.  I think about mortality — mostly my own.

A couple nights ago, I and someone important to me walked the length of the Brooklyn Bridge and back at 4 in the morning — and I talked about all these things I just listed, and that I spoke of them to him and that while we leaned over the railing, staring into the blackened East River I was thinking of these things without making a sound, tells me they’re probably the most important things to me to explore at this moment. Maybe indefinitely.

IS THAT BORING

Does this mean I can flatter/fancy myself as ECCC’s X-tremely Unofficial Liaison with Brian K. Vaughan/the East Coast —
I’m going to namedrop ECCC with such gusto. (And then maybe actually get there myself.)

These shockingly beautiful women are sitting beside me on my break, dressed exactly the same, with the same hair and make up. Memoirs of a Geisha! Wow. I wonder where they work. #Geisha #Beautiful #London #Twins #Cool 💜

Please don’t take pictures of asian women and post them on the internet, and call them “geisha”. Please don’t do that. Unless they were full-fledged geisha who have studied and graduated, and you have their explicit permission to take their picture and post it on the internet, don’t.

+ these two people are flight attendants for Singapore Airlines God my brain could just leak out my ears

Maybe, just maybe Brian K Vaughan? I know his con appearances are rare.

We can definitely try, but like you said he doesn’t do very many con appearances.

norahwinters I’m counting on you @ NYCC to help make this dream a reality

I am going to represent your ECCC interests (and also reiterate my Bradbury question) so hard at BKV. IT’S GONNA BE GREAT
