Mod note: 

Feel free to erase this bit here if you reblog, but I just wanted to explain why I made this. Very recently I got into an argument online with a white woman about a film that executed a white savior trope. I explained all the things I found problematic in the film and why I thought it was racist, and she told me that I was both nit-picking and white-shaming. I was also called a hypocrite and a racist (against white people).

I could see that this white woman was set in her willful ignorance, and that any further arguing would only make me more frustrated and her more self-righteous. So instead, I made this (lovely, if I can so myself) powerpoint rather than metaphorically bashing my head against a brick wall in continuing a conversation with her. 

May this help you in all your efforts, even if it couldn’t help me in mine.

P.S. So I don’t know if someone has made a powerpoint for racism before (I’m sure someone has), but I haven’t seen one. Please link it to us if you have!

Today’s Book Reccomendation is: Peter Clines’ 14

What if you found an apartment in LA for under $600 dollars? I mean a decent apartment… in Hollywood… like with all utilities paid for. What would you do? 


Well, Nate did what any of us would do, he jumped on it! I mean, you can’t pass a deal like that up can you? Especially, if you have barely any money in the bank. This is obviously too good to be true!

The neighbors are nice (with the exception of a Jesus freak) and everything seems great, until he notices little things off in the building. Light fixtures are… off. Neighbors apartments are off. Green fluorescent roaches? Wtf is going on?!?!?

14 my favorite book of last year (it came out in 2012, but i just read it last year). It was a bestseller for 7 weeks, and with good reason. The book is genius! I was immediately caught up in the mystery of the building. So much so, that I found myself after the story, trying to see if the building was real. Low and behold… it was. 

Peter Clines does a brilliant job of bringing the characters to life; especially the building. You are transported into this world. I’m done writing about it,

READ THIS FUCKING BOOK NOW! If you are lazy, it is on audible.

MOVIE RECOMMENDATION: FUNNY GAMES

Today’s movie recommendation is a excellent movie by Austrian film maker, Michael Haneke. This movie is actually a remake of his classic foreign film of the same name entitled, Funny Games.

Funny Games has gone down in history as one of the most brutal movies, yet, looks can be very deceiving (if you are smart enough, you’ll understand when you watch it). It is very psychological and disturbing. So heres the story: A rich, white, suburban family go to their vacation home for a wonderful family vacation! Little did they know that their world would be fucked over big time by a group of preppy home invaders. The home invaders incapacitate the father, gather the family in the living room, and proceed to place a bet with the family. They bet the family, that by the morning, they will be dead. Tween son and all.

From there, psychological torture ensues! The movie is brilliantly written and shot.  The acting is very good as well; with convincing performances by Naomi Watts, Tim Roth, and Brady Corbet. But, the person who steals the show is Michael Pitt (Boardwalk Empire, Hannibal). He is charming, funny, and extremely disturbing. I highly recommend this film!

Movie Recommendation: I SAW THE DEVIL

Today’s movie recommendation is a movie of EPIC proportions! In my opinion, this movie is one of the best cat & mouse thrillers ever. It is brutal, extremely disturbing, and an emotional powerhouse! No, I am not exaggerating. When you see this film, you will be on the edge of your seat.

"I Saw the Devil" is the story of a young woman named Joo-yun. She is engaged to be married to the man of her dreams, a man named, Soo-hyun (played by international star Lee Byung-hun). The two are madly in love, and all is right with the world. One night, on a dark road, she gets a flat tire. A man in a yellow bus eventually pulls up named, Kyung-chul (played by Oldboy himself, Choi Min-sik) and offers to help her with the flat. Days pass and there is no sign of Joo-Yun.

As the family searches frantically for their loved one, a young boy discovers her missing ear in a field, and eventually the rest of her mutilated body. This turns Soo-hyun’s life completely upside down! Little did the killer know, that Soo-hyun is the top agent at the “National Intelligence Service” (South Korea’s CIA) and he vows vengeance on the man that killed his future wife. Unspeakable fucking vengeance! From there, we have the most sadistic film I’ve ever seen. It’s not that it’s gory (which it is), it’s the lengths that these men will go to that disturbs me.

I Saw The Devil is a brilliant masterpiece for those who love horror thrillers. I highly recommend it.

And guess what!?!?!? IT’S ON NETFLIX!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ads Against Apartheid (AAA) launched these brilliant ads on the Boston subway system this week.

“The ads simply state the facts and are backed up with citations from credible human rights and international organizations, including the United Nations,” said Chadi Salamoun, the president of Ads Against Apartheid, who added that “if the ads are shocking, that’s because the reality on the ground is shocking.”

Richard Colbath-Hess, a Jewish-American faculty member at the University of Massachusetts, and the co-founder of Ads Against Apartheid, noted that “American tax dollars help the Israeli government maintain an incredibly brutal military occupation, which has denied the Palestinian people their basic rights for decades. These ads show what Israel’s occupation and apartheid really look like, and it is important for Americans to see that.”
