Lost with the lights on

This blog is a slush of miscellaneous bullshit. The best thing about tumblr is that I can post content at my own discretion, without a particular theme. And that's exactly what you'll find here: art, webcomics, music, cute folks, etc. I used to post political things here, but now they're reserved for my political blog, leftistshuffle.tumblr.com. I also co-mod fuckyeahamericanart.

Ernest Hemingway once wrote, “tumblr is a fine place and worth fighting for.” I agree with the second part.




Terrance Houle: Urban Indian Series (2004), 

Born December 9, 1975, in Calgary. Lives and works in Calgary. In a practice that ranges from performance to photography to film and video works, Blackfoot artist Terrance Houle remakes the troubled history of colonialism and First Nations identity with a roguish wit and punk-rock edge. His strategy matches self-deprecating humour with an uneasy undertone; the results cut away at both Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal notions of an urban Indian status quo. In his Urban Indian Series (2004), Houle is pictured grocery shopping, working in an office cubicle and riding public transit—all in elaborate powwow regalia.

In the performance video Friend or Foe (2010–11), he plays off cultural and historical gaps in communication while dressed in a loincloth and communicating by sign language.

Coachella is capitalizing on offensive Native American appropriation
