OK and Sarah are joined by two of our absolute favorite cartoonists Alex Degen and Alec Robbins to discuss One Piece both as a comic😤 and as content😩. Alec’s fantastic thread on the “corporate experiment” that is Netflix’s One Piece prompted this excellent convo on art education, WGA/SAG actions, and flattening of culture that happens online. Alex and OK also endorse interesting live action adaptions that happened via ice and in kabuki. We want ART not YOUTUBE BYPRODUCT. We want DIGNITY not SLOP!! They are trying to feed us BUGS when we need REAL FOOD that will nurture our souls and lift our spirits. Isn’t that what One Piece is truly all about??

The long-awaited part 2 of A&L’s side pod, Fielderwatch, taking on the series finale of The Rehearsal with twitter’s most famous husband, Alec Robbins, and friend of the pod and union-certified painter of tunnels onto walls Hannah Guerrero! For a show that adores how tv gets made, it equally adores the psychological trauma of doing so, with the gut-wrenching sixth episode that speaks to not just the ethics of child actors as a concept, but expands on ideas first developed in Nathan For You, on what “help” can even mean. Hannah and Alec share their valuable insight as past and present film crew workers, explaining the actual level of labor that goes into the creation of the little moving square in your living room, and how those workplaces could produce great works democratically. Also, we didn’t take the week off, we did this interview!!

The id must flow! On today’s episode OK and Sarah talk to cartoonist of Mr. Boop fame Alec Robbins about the on-going mass personae of twitter and irl experiments with identity via Halloween/anime conventions (we should probably read Capitalism and Schizophrenia, idk) Cosplay is just Halloween in the expanded field. Alec, the good one, updates us on the IATSE deal and shares his experiences on incompetent/dangerous/underfunded productions. Leave a gun emoji in the comments if you made it to the Alec Baldwin truther section, but not the watergun bs, the real gun. Who needs sincerity now in the time of monsters?
