Reviewing Assassination: The Plan to Kill Donald Trump

30.01.17   I read an article the other day about “The Brit Who Tried to Kill Trump”. I was particularly interested in the plan that the guy had come up with.

The Stupid White Male Critic: A Response to Mike McCahill’s Review of “Kaabil”

The review can be found here:   https://sunsm.wordpress.com/2017/01/26/kaabil-film-review/   I gave “Kaabil” a positive review because the film was a response to the injustice of rapist immunity and to the male-dominated legal and political system of power.

In terms of Oscars, this is obvious. Very … Continue reading

A Vision

This is an experimental poem I did in about seven minutes. I haven’t been writing poetry very much lately, so this is kind of a return. It’s been a largely uncreative week in terms of my personal work. No drawing and no writing. I’ve been working on designing a course about my research for secondary … Continue reading
