Warning for live human shit, sexual trauma, suicide, anger, and misery. We had a night on the town to see the new off Broadway production “while you were partying” by Peter Mills Weiss and Julia Mounsey with Brian Fiddyment at Soho Rep! Its a fantastic new play for the irony poisoned, N64 modding, suicidal incel poster psyche of many an “ordinary American” cursed by the internet age. As usual, the NYtimes has no idea what’s going on, but fret not dear reader, we’re just the floating voices that do, and that’s the art and labor promise! Poem, prayer, meme: you decide.
144 - Mormonism 3 w/ Matt Stephenson of Machine Girl
Welcome to Art and Labor your #1 source of queer nu metal speculation and investigation. Nostalgia is the reason for the season so we’ve brought on fellow scholar of early 2000s media, Matt of Machine Girl. Turns out genres are just genders! We host an open dialog on our common areas of expertise, Spiderman Elsa videos, body pillows, horror as queer cinema, and fortnite punk houses. We need Mormonism 3 to determine who is a good sicko in IMVU and who is a bad sicko SVA professor. We demand full erasure of Kevin Spacey from Moon (Duncan Jones, you have 24 hours to respond.) 50% of the people on this podcast are on edibles, can you guess who?
In a crumbling democracy dictated by the bourgeois, regime change is mostly aesthetics. Biden Harris is serving us a kinder, gentler imperialism, while also giving the wink big to Thatcherism. Complete with corporate sponsored jingoism and drones. More the vibes of a Superbowl commercial than a celebratory tailgate. We also discuss local strategies, the Trump barricades, and fall down the gender discourse pit.

OK and Lucia discuss burnout, survival gigs, the realities of gender presentation, and universal emotions. How does art influence the ruling class? And how do we examine our proximity to wealth, even if we aren’t collecting a living wage from that proximity.
