AGENT CARTER doing so well, but the first black man with a speaking part dies within minutes; what is wrong with you Marvel?
conflicted on ENDINGS; beautiful staging & meditation on death, but felt too often it horrifically trivialised others’ experiences #sydfest
status report: SYDNEY BUDDHA still mostly intact, serene, and perfectly framed in the @carriageworks space (@ Carriageworks)
saddest awkward not-date at the next table; he thinks she’s into him, but she thinks he’s gay, but he’s just latin american
important! attack doesn’t justify their ‘speech’, nor warrant racism as satire. #jesuischarlie is the wrong response hoodedutilitarian.com/2015/01/in-the…
