Why I need #CancelColbert

cheuya:

One of my most trusted friends, an Asian man, told me I was flat-out wrong to support #CancelColbert. Just documenting my response here.

I know that as a writer you’re already aware, satire is a tool intended to enact social criticism through ridicule. It’s supposed to subvert power. Unless used…

…Riza Hawkeye!

Someone suggests in kotaku comments that the anime fan portraits are “kinda degrading.” Yes/no? Shrug! I do wonder why there aren’t more anime-styled political cartoons, personally.

Tokyo’s Incredible Street Fashion

Japan’s street fashion scene has long inspired and fascinated adventurous style-watchers across the world. Since the early 1990s, fashion tribes—from ganguro to Lolita—have united people interested in developing hyperstylized looks. Initially intrigued by an article describing makeup trends among Japan’s nightlife crowd, New York–based photographer Thomas C. Card spent several months in Tokyo in spring 2012 creating portraits of the city’s most striking citizens for his book Tokyo Adorned. Although many of the people he photographed showed characteristics of various fashion tribes, Card noted the fierce individualism his subjects expressed in describing their style. “The thing I found absolutely amazing once I was on the ground in Tokyo was that the fashions were very much centered around the individual and less around the tribe,” Card said. “In the early part of our production process, we were thinking of this as different tribes and groups that were very close and defined. I was thrilled when I got there to find that nearly all the girls really view this as an expression of themselves.”

During Card’s first trip to Tokyo, he spent hours each day on the street looking for subjects. “It seemed clear to me that the best way to gain trust was to have people with me on set who could spread the word in the streets. Eventually, we found two women who came in for a session, which was a huge success. That opened the door for us to reach people,” Card said.
