Moon Of Retribvtion

isbl_fullxfull.25829279_k2s2ly6m

About a year ago, I changed the name of my store, where I sell my art and writing, from Lunar Baedeker to Moon Of Retribvtion.

Since then, it’s changed so much it’s completely unrecognizable.

I’ve tabled at three Punk Rock Flea Markets in town; my art and writing is available at a few local shops and I’m starting wholesale with shops across the world; and my tiny side project has grown into a bona fide business.

I appreciate all the support I get (especially from my bff Naomi!!!) and I’m very grateful that this weird little diversion has blossomed into a weird little business.

What ‘Master of None’ Got Wrong (And Right) About ‘The Bell Jar’ and Manic Pixie Dream Girls

My latest on the NetFlakes blog.

NetFlakes

In the final episode of the first season of Netflix’s Master Of None, Dev, played by Aziz Ansari, turns to The Bell Jar to help him make a big decision. Dev is uncertain about the future of his relationship with Rachel, and his father tells him he’s being indecisive. The oft-quoted “fig tree” passage comes recommended by Dev’s father: “You are like woman sitting in front of fig tree, staring at all the branches ‘til the tree dies.” Dev blinks and his father continues, somewhat admonishingly: “Sylvia Plath. The Bell Jar. You never read. You’re always on the YouTube.” Dev has seemingly never heard of the 1963 novel that, like Master Of None, takes place mostly in New York City. Dev’s father explains further:

“Look, you are a young man, you can do a lot of things with your life: career, girlfriend, travel, you can even start a family. But…

Pee-wee’s Big Holiday: Because “Pee-wee’s Big, Gay, Campy Trip to Nostalgia-Town” Was Just Too Long

Check out my podcast where I talk about camp aesthetics, fatphobia, and queer undertones in the movie.

NetFlakes

What didn’t we talk about when Rob MacDougall from Hold My Order, Terrible Dresser joined Dylan and Caroline to talk about Netflix’ relatively new original movie Pee-wee’s Big Holiday.

By tuning in, you can enjoy:

  • a few words on the Marvel Cinematic Universe
  • an epiphany about how to pronounce “Manganiello”
  • insight into Paul Reubens’ pop culture exile
  • a deeply nostalgic look at other Pee-wee Herman media
  • a queer reading of the movie
  • a suggestion that modern children’s entertainment is ready for Pee-wee
  • some debate about whether the film is campily positive toward people of size or just plain mean

Punch-Drunk Love: Breaking Down the Barryers

My latest podcast where I talk about similarities between this Paul Thomas Anderson movie and Catcher in the Rye.

NetFlakes

After another exciting Twitter vote, you, the citizens of NetFlakesland decided that we needed to talk about Punch-Drunk Love. For both myself and Caroline, we weren’t quite sure what to do with the movie at first but it let an impression, so please listen as we try to come to an understanding of why so many of you chose this film.

Among other topics, we get into

  • Barry’s mental health
  • the perfect casting of Adam Sandler
  • the long shadow of Philip Seymour Hoffman
  • how badly Caroline wants to throw salt at one character
  • whether or not the villains are made even by their markers of Mormonism
  • a side-by-side comparison of Punch-Drunk Love and Catcher in the Rye

New Etsy Shop

IMG_1455

Thanks to my generous Patreon patrons, I’ve been able to devote some time to a new project: my first Twine story. Hopefully I’ll be all finished and ready to launch it soon, but in the meantime I’ve made prints of the illustrations I drew to accompany the story. They’re three torture devices: the pear of anguish, the branks, and the forks. I’ve opened a new Etsy shop, Moon of Retribvtion, and you can buy the illustrations as prints (two sizes available) or stickers.

The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo: Mara-the-Roo and Triggers Too

I talk trigger warnings, and the problems with victims-turned-heroines and the “cool girl” trope.

NetFlakes

You asked for it, NetFlakes listeners, and now you’ve got it. After a neck-and-neck-and-neck poll, you chose 2011’s The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo as the movie that you most wanted to hear Dylan and Caroline take on.

Things get personal when Caroline opens up about her experience being triggered by the explicit sexual violence of the film.

We also talk about the problems with both protagonists – one for replacing one stereotype with another, the other one for just being a dork.

Holy Motors: Wait, What?

Listen to me talk about misogyny and pretentious filmmaking!

NetFlakes

Trying to explain what we talk about in this podcast review of Holy Motors would take its own podcast review. With the help of academic Adam Bowes, Dylan and Caroline did their best to make sense of a movie that includes

  • burqas
  • chimpanzees
  • simulated sex between snake-people
  • doppelgängers
  • prosthetic erections
  • a sewer-dwelling Parisian troglodyte
  • and an accordion-based halftime show
