“It was always the apocalypse,” Laura said. “You guys just didn’t notice until now.”
Elvia Wilk, Oval

“You mean that racist shit we just saw?”
Sara raised her eyebrows, signaling that this was out-of-bounds. Only sanctioned critiques, please. “Racist? How so?”
“Snow Yellow?”
“I’m pretty sure it’s a comment on racism, it’s not doing racism.”
“What’s the difference?”

Elvia Wilk, Oval

“People who spent all their time out there—people like Prinz—could no longer even draw a distinction between productive and unproductive time. The act of partying had become an act of production: they were producing relations—relations as objects. And objects as opportunities. Content was subordinate.”
Elvia Wilk, Oval
