I'm a graduate student in a media studies program. I study video games and look at them through the lens of critical theory. Basically my semester involves me playing games and writing papers.
- Philosophical Discussions
- Playing video games (I'm a big ole' nerd)
movies: the holy mountain, drive, the first 15 mins of any mystery science theater 3000 episode
shows: breaking bad, the knick, mad men, GoT, louie, broad city
music: animal collective, brand new, neutral milk hotel, kanye west, ofwgkta, lil b, tv on the radio, phoenix, interpol, yeah yeah yeahs, the smiths, kool ad, kendrick lamar, com truise
-my choice of religion. if one does not laugh at/in one's religion, if no joy is to be found resting in the absurdity of christ, then i am to be pitied and mocked beyond all others. let the laughter commence because it's very funny either way.
-sarcasm/sincerity. namely our cultural obsession with wit and sarcasm are less indicative of the virtues of intellect and refinement than an inability to express and embrace the commitments of the sublime. we're so quick to mock and lampoon rather than engage flaws in earnest. if everyone swears they have such sharp wit, why then do they go about brandishing it like a blunt object?
Even if you're not interested, I'd like some constructive criticism on this profile...
