Solace Ames

I write mixed-orientation multicultural erotic romance. The shows I'm really into now are Elementary, Spartacus, Torchwood, The Walking Dead, Lost Girl, Orphan Black, Luther. I'm a Japanese-American woman living in the South. I'm pretty easy-going about most things—please follow at will. I've seen Pacific Rim six times so far.

Why were the tail-class passengers tortured so wastefully and horribly? Here’s why…

Because seeing how badly they were treated kept the rest of the train in line.

It’s the self-perpetuating system, and the analogy is to any underclass maintained via institutionalized racism and/or ethnic and/or religious hatred. The underclass is a manufactured threat to keep the rest of society in line—a miserable underclass is an absolute requirement for system maintenance.

People ask, ‘So, how are the roles now? You must be getting so many.’ And it’s like, I don’t know if you know, but I’m Asian still,” Yeun told TheWrap earlier in July, laughing. “It’s not a complaint, that’s just how it is now, and I have to forge my own path through it and see that through. I think that if I had not been Asian, I probably would have a whole plethora of roles, at least to audition for, but it’s just not what has been written.

As a goth, that scene with the ravers was extra frightening.

Please let me not have nightmares tonight about defending a bridge against a horde of murderous hallucinating ravers with my only weapon a crowbar

I’m going to check out Extant tonight. But I might need to rewatch some Musketeers for something feel good after the bleakness that was Snowpiercer.

Snowpiercer First Impressions

I need to see this movie again in the theater. I didn’t breathe for two hours. 

  • So grim. So grim. Thank goodness I had a feeling how grim it was going to be, going in. 
  • I had no idea Luke Pasqualino was in this movie, and that he was gloriously shirtless for almost all of his screen time. 
  • The acting in this was amazing, all around amazing. And this is coming from someone who doesn’t give a shit about Chris Evans and hasn’t even seen the latest Captain America. Wow. 
  • Octavia Spencer aaaaaaaaagggghhhhh
  • Tilda Swinton’s dentures and Ayn Rand impression aaaaaaaggghhhh
  • The set pieces were fucking unbelievable
  • "The train is humanity." Humanity under capitalism…

[…] If Snowpiercer had merely told the tale of an oppressed working class rising up to seize power from an evil overlord, it would already have been an improvement over most of the political messages in mainstream cinema. There are all sorts of nice touches in its portrayal of a declining capitalism that can maintain its ideological legitimacy even when it literally has no more bullets in its guns.

But the story Bong tells goes beyond that. It’s about the limitations of a revolution which merely takes over the existing social machinery rather than attempting to transcend it. And it’s all the more effective because the heart of that critique comes as a late surprise, from a character we might not expect.

[…] All too often, explicitly political art fails as both art and politics. Socialists shouldn’t put up with half-assed imitations of popular genres, nor with political messages denuded of anything but the lowest common denominator.

What makes Snowpiercer satisfying is that it commits neither error. It’s an engrossing and stylish movie, and its underlying themes go beyond merely pointing out class exploitation to challenge the logic of capital. It’s a movie that should be seen as widely as possible, if only so that Bong Joon-ho gets more chances to make movies for English-speaking audiences that badly need them.

I think I’m going to take a long break from BDSM erotic romance. I love writing it, but I’m exhausted.

I just found out my first solo novel The Submission Gift is getting turned into an audiobook. I’m happy about that, even though I don’t listen to audiobooks, and I’ve never listened to any of mine. I like podcasts and radio dramas but not audiobooks, for some reason.

Snowpiercer tonight, finally!

If you google ‘Eric Garner’ I guarantee you that almost every article by major media outlets will list some or all of the following: Garner’s height, weight, his (alleged) past criminal history, and that the police supposedly thought he was “illegally” selling cigarettes. And all this information will be in the first few paragraphs.

Here’s what most corporate news outlets won’t make so readily available (you may have to dig for it): precisely how many officers ganged up on Garner, their complete police histories, any crimes they may have committed in their personal lives, and not even the names of all the involved officer’s are listed. And you may or may not have read that Garner clearly said he couldn’t breathe at least six times, and that multiple witnesses said Garner had just arrived on scene and broken up an altercation.

The media is hardly objective and they begin covering for the police and victimizing the victim very early on. These lopsided “facts” and seemingly minor omissions is only the beginning. Wait until it goes to court. Then you won’t believe how much news outlets, the police and defense attorneys will demonize Mr. Garner.

Unless you’re Black. Then this is an all too familiar pattern.

From Emmett Till to Rodney King to The Central Park Five to Oscar Grant to Amadou Diallo to Sean Bell to Trayvon Martin to Renisha McBride to Jonathan Ferrell to Jordan Davis to Eric Garner and so very many others…even though we’re always unarmed, there is never a shortage of disproportionately White juries eager to conclude that the act of merely existing while Black is always sufficient justification for inflicting brutality, imprisonment or murder onto any unfamiliar Black bodies

Seems like it’s always the same old song and dance whenever Black people seek justice from the system made to imprison us: Criminalizing BlacknessWhite people may commit crimes, but Black people are always viewed as criminals.

Revealed: the Palestinian children killed by Israeli forces | The Telegraph 

More children than Palestinian fighters are being killed in Israel’s offensive on Gaza, according to the UN. Shown here are the name, age, and sex of 132 of those children, recorded by the Al Mezan Centre for Human Rights

at the moment 29 Israeli lives have been lost (mostly soldiers) and 650 (mostly civilians-many of whom are children) Palestinians have been killed. CNN alone has done 46 interviews with Israeli Officials this year, while speaking with only 11 Palestinian leaders. besides a few outlets (i.e. democracy now, black agenda report, truth dig, etc.) u.s. “journalism” in no way works to shape public opinion for the public good.

Meanwhile at the Wall Street Journal
