My thoughts exactly on the Redskins Daily Show segment as well as just Native Mascotry issues in general.
saying stuff like ”film is dead, they don’t make them like they used to, movies from today suck, etc”…. rather than describe the actual situation of cinema, only show how clueless you are of your own times and how you decided to limit yourself and ignore an immense group of amazing filmmakers working nowadays in order to pat yourself on the back for watching old movies from an already established canon ‘cause that’s easier than explore what it’s happening now.

"In wise love each defines the secret self of the other, and refusing to believe in the mere daily self, creates a mirror where the lover or the beloved sees an image to copy in daily life; for love also creates the Mask."

"We make each other alive; it doesn’t make a difference if it hurts."
