Broke: Big tech use our data to give us more personalised experiences.
Woke: Big tech use our data to sell us shit.
Bespoke: Big tech don't have any idea what they're doing with our data and are largely just making up some shit about algorithms. They hope at some point they can use our data in an effective way, but at this point they have no clue what that is. Instead, they sit on our private data like dragons upon a golden hoard.

lesbophobic but very funny 1893 newspaper reporting
Not to be outdone by medical men, the Mascot retailed a "story of love between two women — licentious, horrible love." "One of the most beautiful girls in the city" of New Orleans turned out to be "viler than the most lost harlot." Her "vile passions" were exhibited when she approached a "grass widow," a woman recently separated from her husband, and said "Oh what a beautiful form you have. I wish I could see you without your clothes." Even more horribly, the newspaper reported, "the widow consented."
The Widow Consented ! 😂😂😂
It's unsurprising that Joker's obvious interest in class has been obfuscated by shallow discussions of gender issues which the film doesn't touch on. It's interesting that the movie *encourages* such obfuscation. Fleck tells us he isn't political, the director tells us the film isn't political, and even though class is obviously the main theme, it is certainly not treated coherently.
I think Joker is haunted by the spectre of class conflict at every level.
Absolutely fascinated by the mainstream discourse surrounding Joker (2019) and its relation to the film itself. This definitely isn't the first time that mainstream critics completely miss what a film is about but it's interesting that this happens in a case where the director clearly misses what his film is about as well.
