I am beginning to believe, in other words, that if you "can not" write—or do not want to, or can't find a way to, or feel blocked—then you should probably do something else. This notion that a writer *must* *always* *be writing* is very Western, I think, and excessively masculine. Who cares if something gets left unexpressed? The Buddhists might argue that it was probably not worth expressing anyway.(less)

This will allow me to dig in and expand the thing into a full book, and do more in-depth comics journalism with collaborators like Leela Corman, Delia Jean, Melissa Mendes, Julia Gfrörer, and Ellen Lindner. It looks at hidden connections between the sex and garment trades worldwide, and will cause you to look at the hot-button issue of human trafficking in a totally new light. At the Helsinki Comics Festival last week, someone compared it to Joe Sacco's Palestine! Which pretty much made me cry.(less)

“the fact is, our relationships to these corporations are not unambiguous. some memebers of negativland genuinely liked pepsi products. mca grew up loving star wars and didn't mind having his work sent all over the united states to all the "cool, underground magazines" they were marketing to--why would he? sam gould had a spiritual moment in the shower listening to a cd created, according to sophie wong, so that he would talk about tylenol with his independent artist friends--and he did. many of my friends' daughters will be getting american girl dolls and books as gifts well into the foreseeable future. some skateboarders in washington, dc, were asked to create an ad campaign for the east coast summer tour, and they all love minor threat--why not use its famous album cover? how about shilling for converse? i would have been happy to ten years ago. so what's really changed?
the answer is that two important things have changed: who is ultimately accountable for veiled corporate campaigns that occasionally strive to obsfucate their sponsorship and who is requesting our participation in such campaigns. behind converse and nike sb is nike, a company that uses shit-poor labor policies and predatory marketing that effectively glosses over their shit-poor labor policies, even to an audience that used to know better. behind team ouch! was an underground-savvy brainreservist on the payroll of big pharma; behind the recent wave of street art in hip urban areas near you was omd worldwide on behalf of sony; behind your cool hand-stenciled vader shirt was lucasfilm; and behind a recent cool crafting event was toyota. no matter how you participated in these events, whether as a contributor, cultural producer, viewer, or even critic, these are the companies that profited from your attention.”

“Unfortunately, what anti-human trafficking NGOs [non-governmental organizations] really do is instead quite damaging: they normalize existent labor opportunities for women, no matter how low the pay, dangerous the conditions, or abusive an environment they foster. And they shame women who reject such jobs.”
Anne Elizabeth Moore, Threadbare: Clothes, Sex, and Trafficking

“I'm on a weird quest to be sort of famous, like an indie movie star that only the hip people like to chat about.....I want to be underground famous," she wrote on Grrl.com, before working on her Sith promotions - she's genuinely on "our side.”

“Scientists are aware that all the lab-rat tests in the world, once compiled, can tell us only how lab rats act when tested, and that is how we must begin to view school: all that you can learn in a school classroom is what goes on inside a school classroom.”
