What a beautiful face I have found in this place that is circling all round the sun. What a beautiful dream that could flash on the screen in a blink of an eye and be gone from me. Let me hold it close and keep it here with me. And one day we will die and our ashes will fly from the aeroplane over the sea. But for now we are young, let us lay in the sun and LIST every beautiful thing we can see.

  • Aside from sociopaths, every personality is needed: artists, nerds, scientists, hippies, jocks, etc. All needed.
  • What I wanted the last lines of Del Toro's Pinocchio to actually be: "Pinocchio ventured into the world. Our world of joy, pain, family, war, loss, and friendship. He walked forward, ready to embrace all of it. Even knowing one day, he too would have to say goodbye."
  • Our collective consciousness feels diseased.
  • Everyone is great. Everyone is terrible. And there are no exceptions to that.
  • “We are fragile creatures surrounded by a world of hostile facts.”

A personal REMINDER list regarding "like-based scrolling-feed" social media. The introduction of “scrolling,” and “likes,” on social media (by big tech) changed human psychology (why we didn't implement those features here). They will NEVER stop making this shit as addictive as possible.

THOUGHTS ON SOCIAL MEDIA:

  • Not selling family. I don't want to package my family as a sellable commodity for their profit. We try to avoid peddling family & our relationship for public consumption for corporate profit (the behavior they reward). Family is not a brand. Not capitalism.
  • Capitalism's profiting on hate, gossip, and division will snatch your soul. You have to steal it back.
  • SM can make genuine life experiences performative.
  • Companies are actively hacking and pillaging for our attention, creating the growth of ADHD. We are losing our ability to focus, to listen, to process, to critically think. They are re-wiring our minds with a bad combination of short attention span and anxiety.
  • There's a spectrum of mental illness on display and followed by millions. Negative...

  • What does it feel like to be relevant only when Asian women die? You’re celebrated until another killing happens ––to be valuable, only deserving of empathy and love, when you’re brutalized. That’s the Asian American plight. We’re not visible at all. Only visible as a corpse.
  • Your mother advised you that the way you protect yourself from racism is to disappear. Warning you ahead of time to stay small to be a smaller target. (As a mother who raised an Asian child) I assumed somehow subconsciously that my whiteness was his whiteness and that it would protect him. He dealt with racism in every school and town but he dealt with it alone because he didn’t have a guide.
  • The body holds and knows so much more than we do.
  • Privilege is not just about economics. It’...

Pet peeve (sexist) comments over the years?

  • He's why I have tattoos.
    • I had ten tattoos before meeting him (including tattoos on my breasts). I have more tattoos because I have a tattoo artist living with me.
  • He's why I like punk.
    • I still don't listen to american hardcore but I've always listened to 1970s punk from the U.S. and London, and turned him on to an era of punk and post punk he had never listened to before. Strangely, I think he'd say I had a bigger influence on his music tastes than the other way around.
  • I'm influenced by his work.
    • He had never read graphic novels. I intro...
