How can you spot a Bitch? She Instagrams her pumpkin spice latte with caffeine. She bought a neon croptop from NastyGal to wear to Coachella. She takes quizzes to find out which guy from Sex and the City would be her perfect match. I agree with Alex Jones that this is a prison planet, but it doesn’t have to be that way.

Item Type:Book SectionItem Status:Live ArchiveAbstractThis article explores transmedia swarmings via the Lovecraft mythos which has mutated across various media. The chapter uses the insights of theorists such as Henry Jenkins and others working on transmedia in combination with Jussi Parikka’s notion of “insect media”, a posthuman approach to media ecologies that emphasises the swarming and contagious nature of cultural exchange. As Glennis Byron and Dale Townshend have suggested, swarming is a recurrent chronotype in Gothic fiction, as zombies, vampires, clones and viruses operate as mobile, deterritorialized and ferocious agents across threatening, non human networks.
Players Weekend was a good starting point for Major League Baseball and the Players Association, but players should be given more freedom to express themselves the entire season rather than a small batch of ball games.

It may not be a perfect system, but with helpful (not entirely cynical dismissive) feedback, their system can be improved.At the same time, to blindlyfollow a celebrity studded campaign telling you, “Kids need shoes, so go barefoot to empathize!” is also an unhelpful oversimplification resulting in nothing more than blisters and maybe a skin infection. The act of ‘buy one to give one’ is indeed a fantastic way of getting people superficially ‘involved’ in service work without them even realizing it, but this kind of aloof giving model (1) dangerously perpetuates components of the ‘white savior industrial complex’, turning the characters into heroes/victims rather than fellow people; and (2) dumbs down complex problems thereby dismissing the true need to think critically about solutions to global health, education, and economic dilemmas.Days without shoes and days without dignity both sound terrible to me. But the days equally worst, in my opinion, are the days full of action, having not properly discussed the implications, and days full of discussion, but without any ‘doing.'(Hope to see ideas in the comments section giving deeper insight on either side to this debate, including other social enterprise models that may be of interest to readers!
