    This is where we need @Ramza for a Hegelian interpretation. Where is that guy?

    I will. I’ve never seen them live. This is a good fest for comedy, so I’m going to catch some of that (namely, Bridget Christie). And I think poet John Cooper-Clarke is over in the lit bit.

    Other than that, I’ll most likely be noodling about in some dingy dance tent, up to no good.

    Obviously given the thread context an accidental misspelling invites us to suspend our reading of the post as written and thus reminds us of the suspension of the ability of the self in itself to become a self for itself via confrontation with a corresponding self in itself as a result of the zone of nonbeing in the master-slave dialectic enforced by the colonial apparatus (cf. F. Fanon Black Skin, White Masks). Obviously.

    Hey besties. So regarding that saitan hotdog I ate - don’t.

    Festival update, it’s 12:30am and we’ve found a tent that just has Prince cover bands.

    Hi besties I watched an anime premiere thing at an AMC with a nerd friend. It was called Beat up the Titans or something. It was very odd.

    Did they get to the part where the author uses his fantasy setting as a thin veneer to justify the Holocaust?

    So I’ve just seen an ad for this. Not only does Magnum not have a mustache, but Higgins has been recast with a British actor.

    I could vomit.

    Hi bezzies, in non-Magnum news, I am enjoying reading about chaos at Build-A-Bear stores yesterday, when people lined up for ten hours to save $20 on a teddy bear they didn't plan on buying until they found out they could save $20 on it.

    Can you fault them for wanting to pay less for the privilege of owning a personal totem made of the flesh of their dead labor? They will presumably place it upon the family altar and offer up animal sacrifices while intoning sacred passages from The Wealth of Nations, as is the style.

    She is not. And she also does not have a moustache.

    The advert was deflating. Some things should just be left alone. One of those things is Magnum's lip hair.

    They think that having the Ferrari covers a plethora of sins.

    It does not.

    When they change the theme music they will have begun the next World War.

    The theme might be safe if Hawaii Five-0 is a precedent.

    Incidentally I'm weirdly thrilled by the fact that we live in such a total hellworld that the Hawaii Five-0 reboot is a sign of any sort of hope.

    The Hawaii Five-O reboot is a guilty pleasure of mine - I know it's mostly terrible but it's also very entertaining.

    Besties, today was some kind of miracle free sandwich day for Jimmy Johns... And they brought our office literally about 200 small sandwiches. I ate four of them, for a total of a very long sandwich.

    Mmmm sandwich.

    Do you know what kind of meat was on them, bezzie? The JJ founder has exotic tastes.
