    Cowboy Bebop

    β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…

    During the summers of my childhood when my parents would work I'd go to an older woman's house where I'd make friends with all the other kids dropped off there. It was great: we'd mess around and watch tv in the morning still half-asleep from the car-ride over before doing math problems right before lunch, then play outside in her garden and back yard before heading inside to play her college son's SNES.

    "You've been had. You've been took."

    Bamboozled, a spiteful, hateful, and rightful satire from Spike Lee, except what he satirizes almost seems mild compared to the landscape we're in twenty years later.…
