181 - Gossip Girl Fanfic Novella w/ Charlie Markbreiter
Hey Upper East Siders. The gossip gxrlies are here, and they’re queer stoners now. Our main characters are #1 Charlie Markbreiter, author, PhD candidate, editor at The New Inquiry, and mod of the Death Panel Discord #2 O.K. Fox, Sonic the Hedgehog fetishist and degenerate podcast host. Together they synthesize why white trans guys are annoying, but unfairly maligned as symbols of bourgeois decadence. Given a chance, this T-gel dripping pod will expand you mind about the self organization of fan artists on Deviantart, Furaffinity, A03, and at comics festivals like TCAF forming a front against NFT gentrification. Plus a passage from Charlie’s book about Charli XCX and Gavin McInnes being in or getting off to the Hunger Games.
Look, we’re going on a year of covid, and even though we knew this “new normal” would be pushed on us, it’s still extremely difficult. We talk about how everyone is coping with the barrage of brutality inflicted by the capitalist system’s failure to manage the pandemic and the climate crisis. Big tech is finding ways to capture the conversations we would normally be having at bars both with the new celeb app “clubhouse” and the increased share of streaming and podcasting with major financial backing. Perhaps it’s more comforting to reality shift into a fandom or religion, but of course we find capitalist tendrils lurking there as well. Plus! Some fresh Adam Curtis and Vice 2 takes.

Hello! We aren’t going to build a winning leftist coalition by defending white supremacy. The Paglia poisoned ladies of Vice 2 are at it again, this time in an asinine interview in a magazine that explicitly exists to undermine leftist politics. We’ve previously covered nihilism and insidious individualism on the left (Paglia ep, Vice 2 ep), this time we tie ideology to the dehumanization of undocumented people in the US. Please stay tuned til the end to hear about the Caban election in Queens featuring a PSA about provisional ballots with Joey!!
