177 - One Piece Film Red w/ Sam Branman & August Lipp
/

OK enlisted two of his favorite One Piece freaks—fashion designer and DJ/Producer of Str8 to DVD Sam Branman, and cartoonist August Lipp—to talk critically about the most popular series on the planet who many (present company included) have enjoyed for 15+ years. Although the movie is a big commercial for a vtuber, it has a lot to offer about the false consciousness and cults of personality technology produces both in and outside of the state. We also discuss the theory crafting industrial complex, the series’ shortfalls when it comes to queer characters, and speculate if the distribution companies have censoring power. Spoilers for both the movie and the current arc of the manga!!

Tis the season to have a wide ranging discussion on spirituality. We start with Gnosticism and end with Falun Gong lol. Religion and tradition are being thrown around by all sorts of political actors, can the left compete without the big untraceable and untaxable bux?? We’re stuck in the Merry Christmas Let Them Eat Cake zone, it’s maddening. See you next year! Maybe!
