I’m reading “How to Disappear in America.” It’s dated but it has a lot of strategies that I’m finding useful to think about. The first main thing is that you have to destroy your enemy’s resources and ability to come after you. Drain their bank account, put rice in the radiator of their car (it even explains how to find the radiator), or blow it up if you have to. Frame them for a crime. Do anything you can to keep them from being able to mobilize any kind of hunt for you.

This seems to me to be more fruitful than “Why dont we get more ASME nods?”

“According to Foucault, the monster can be both half an animal and a hybrid gender (later in this text Foucault will go on to position the onanist as the third of the abnormals). But crucially the monster is also to be differentiated from the individual to be corrected on the basis of whether power operates on it or through it. In other words, the absolute power that produces and quarantines the monster finds its dispersal in techniques of normalization and discipline. What Foucault does, we believe, is enable an analysis of monstrosity within a broader history of sexuality. This genealogy is crucial to understanding the historical and political relays, reinvestments, and resistances between the monstrous terrorist and the discourse of heteronormativity. And that is because monsters and abnormals have always also been sexual deviants. Foucault tied monstrosity to sexuality through specific analyses of the deployment of gendered bodies, the regulation of proper desires, the manipulation of domestic spaces, and the taxonomy of sexual acts such as sodomy. As such, the sexualized monster was that figure that called forth a form of juridical power but one that was tied to multiform apparatuses of discipline as well.”

PoC ZINE PROJECT

1. If you haven’t already look into the POC Zine Project, and look into Mimi Thi Nguyen and Osa Atoe’s work. It is so brilliant and so worth reading.

2. Still not over the fact that I got to participate in a reading with these two ladies. Highest of honors.

I am going to have to take 3 xanax and cry, then let you know.

I am beginning to question if just getting through things is a win.
