    Copying Is Not Theft

    "Copying is not theft.
    Stealing a thing leaves one less left
    Copying it makes one thing more; that’s what copying’s for.
    Copying is not theft.
    If I copy yours, you have it too
    One for me and one for you
    That’s what copies can do
    If I steal your bicycle, you have to take the bus
    But if I just copy it there’s one for each of us!
    Making more of a thing, that is what we call “copying”

  • Parasite

    Parasite

    Everything that can be said about Parasite has already been said in exhaustive detail ten times over, and the few people just now trickling towards it will find a dearth of human opinions, analysis, and overwhelming praise to sift through, making it impossible to have anything new to add to discussion that their fellow man hasn't already expressed in a myriad of ways. I myself normally wouldn't have much I could feasibly add, given how I've already delivered two reviews…

    I Accuse

    I feel like I'm in a bit of a lose/lose scenario when trying to dissect and look deeper into I Accuse, because not only does it surround itself around the investigation and perseverance of a woman being drugged and raped by a respected doctor, but it's based on a true story and nearly all the forensic and investigated material lines up with how the events happened in real-life, which leads to the complicated moral weight of how far can my…

  • I, the Executioner

    I, the Executioner

    With its stylish and unceasingly grimy atmosphere, as well as heavy subversions of serial killer conventions that upturn the film's sympathies around its entire head, I, the Executioner is the type of film that almost works sublimely, it knowingly packs plenty of punch as it links together moment of hopelessness after hopelessness and utilizes its "whydunit" structure to an interesting effect, but not necessarily to a convincing effect as its character study starts to become muddled, poorly explored in regard…

    Serial Experiments Lain

    (NOTE: THIS IS A REVIEW OF THE ENTIRE SERIES EPISODE-BY-EPISODE. AS SUCH, SPOILERS ARE PRESENT ALL-AROUND. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED).

    Few series have had their legacy defined by mystique and complete obliqueness like Serial Experiment Lain, delving into complex themes like the nature of reality, identity, and communication just as the internet’s interconnected stream of information began taking the form it takes today. Forming a trifecta of late 90’s anime mindfucks alongside Neon Genesis Evangelion and Revolutionary Girl Utena, a…

    I miss the old Asuka
    Straight from the Go Asuka
    Chop up the soul Asuka
    Set on her goals Asuka
    I hate the new Asuka
    The bad mood Asuka
    The always rude Asuka
    Spaz in the news Asuka
    I miss the sweet Asuka
    Chop up the beats Asuka
    I gotta say, at that time
    I'd like to meet Asuka
    See, I invented Asuka
    It wasn't any Asukas
    And now I look and look around
    And there's so…
