thoughts on early films

Hey everyone! My name is Lat, and I’m studying computer science. I like film a lot, especially weird art films that my friends fall asleep during. My favorite film of all time is “A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night”. It’s an Iranian film styled after my favorite director, Jim Jarmusch, except with less weird […]

Marisol McDonald Doesn’t Match

I love all the little details about how Marisol McDonald doesn’t “match” in any sense; she wears stripes and polka dots in the same outfit, she has red hair and brown skin, and she signs her name half in cursive and half in print.

repeat rewind | march 10th

What even is my blog at this point. Here’s my Repeat Rewind from March 10th. Feels like a solid mix of songs I’ve listened to on repeat since I was 17 and songs I’ve never heard before in my life. There are YouTube links attached, except where there are Bandcamp links. Childhood Dreams – ARYNo […]

Thrown voices

A thrown voice is a voice that a person is “throwing” into something, traditionally a marionette or a ventriloquist’s doll that sits on their lap. This is a voice that is not their voice, a voice that they are taking on. Zadie Smith talks about this in her lecture, Speaking in Tongues; she describes it […]
