While the official reveal of Sony’s next home console could still be months away, if not longer, Kotaku has today learned some important details concerning the PlayStation 3’s successor. For one, the console’s name—or at least its codename/working title—is apparently Orbis.
Anti-Used games. Thats fucked up. No backwards compatability. Thats fucked up. They are turning their backs against the gamer!
Thank goodness Salon came up with this article, because honestly, if they didn’t I was about to go nuts and blog about these recent articles coming out about Trayvon being the “aggressor”. Seriously, folks, if Zimmerman was so innocent, wouldn’t he already come out with a statement.
Lastly, whether or not Trayvon allegedly attacks first. How does this news even nullify the injustice fact that Zimmerman wasn’t even arrested?! I smell a whole crapload of injustice, and it reeks!
This is certainly what it should be about, and it’s what im about regarding the Madonna issue.
Whether i like it or not, and like every other walk of life, whether you’re becoming an adult, or climbing up the corporate ladder, or blazing a path in your chosen profession, im in a position now…
I laughed at when Madonna dropped that shameless plug, but I do get what the Mau5 is saying. Especially since the genre is picking up more noobs and the older folks, not just myself (but the older guys/gals) are gonna have to deal with the kids
Intersectionality is not optional. It is not something you can take off and put back on again at will, when you feel like it. An intersectional lens should inform any critical evaluation of a subject, because these connections are key to understanding the web of oppression that weighs down on us all. These interconnections, too, are very weblike in their nature, because when you tweak one string, all the rest vibrate with it. There is no way to separate these things out from each other.
People complain that people keep dragging ‘side issues’ into ‘their movement’ and they don’t understand that these issues are the movement. Because a movement that commits oppression in the name of liberation is not a good movement, to put it bluntly. We are more vocal about these issues because we have learned the cost of shutting up, because we constantly have to remind people, because the minute we stop, everything returns to the way it was, the status quo is reestablished, and the real structural and institutional problems that create inequality go, once again, uninterrogated.
This is all connected. To misquote Patrick Henry for a moment, give me intersectionality, or give me death. This is not hyperbole: The current system, as it stands, is killing me. It is killing my people. It is killing the people I work in solidarity with. It is killing you. If you do not give me intersectionality, if you will not commit to being intersectional in your deeds, your thinking, your doing, all the time, no matter how you identify your politics, you are killing me.
