When I first moved to CA, I drove this little 3 cylinder Geo Metro. It hit 100k miles driving over the Donner Summit one day, and I remember holding my breath. I thought that it was going to be like a scene from a cartoon, where all four wheels simultaneously fell off, and the engine failed with a dramatic poof of black smoke in the air. This morning, I woke up on my 40th birthday and I thought the same thing was going to happen to me 😂 That my engine would fail and things would fall off. Instead, I woke up and realized that I wish I would have felt as amazingly confident, determined, and at peace with who I was when I was 20 or 30 or any of the years in between as I do right now in this moment. I don’t think I’d go back in time to tell my younger self how much better things get, because every experience fits together like puzzle pieces in the bigger picture of it all. Makes me wonder what kinds of things my 50 or 60 year old self will have to say… .

Hello, 40. You are officially my bitch.

Shenanigans in the desert brought to you by trufflemores and friends

Copy-pasted from a notepad on my phone:

“No internet connection, so we’re gonna notepad this!

Guy’s license plate was literally just SPORTS.

Geo dude 5, who has special needs, asked if someone could help tie his shoes. Y'all may recall from my beach adventures that I hurt my left foot really good and have it in a calf-high boot right now. My geo buddies were being slow on the uptake so I got down on my knees and helped him out. Happy to lend a hand!

Sixty percent of the geo team is now shirtless.

“Fucking chick is singing this. This is the shit.” *shotgun geo dude 2 bobbing head*

Geo dude 2: “I’m gonna be a cowboy and come live out here”
Geo dude 1: “naw dude I’d rob trains”

Geo dudes 1-3: collectively freaking out over motorcycles
Geo dude 1: “WHOO. Look at that Spyder!!” (Car)

Geo dude 2: “dude those people are sick. Look at them climbing the boulder. Fuck yeah”

Geo dudes 1-3: “RATTLESNAKE”

Geo dude 2: “is that a wild horse?? …no that’s a rock”

Geo dude 2: “we’re gonna climb that tomorrow”
Geo dude 3: “we can totally climb that”
It’s 5,500 vertical feet

Geo dude 7: “well if someone gets a sample I won’t stop them” *sample is at top of cliff*
Geo dudes 1-2: *already climbing* “on it chief!”“

1 HC: After Moving into the small apartment, small mannerisms that Geo do makes Bing realize that while He and Google look like twins (Geo being smaller and more frail), He can’t stand to be in a messy environment. He likes to go to bed by eight because of his wacky volunteer schedule, he prefers blue berry to strawberry etc. Bing watches over him fondly, as if they’ve been friends for years.

2 HC: Nightmares. Geo has very, very bad nightmares. He wakes up screaming and panting but for the first time someone comforts him. While Bing may be groggy he quickly comforts the other.

3 HC: Geo can’t cook. At all. He burnt water. Bing still laughs over it.

13th

it is 1am and I’m gonna forget all this if I don’t write it now so bear with me. At the time I’m writing this, 13th, is not on Netflix’s recently added section or trending section. It is listed near the very end of their documentary section. I found it by searching it. This to me is strange considering the film was the first doc to open NYFF, it was directed by Ava DuVernay a well respected director who gives them content through ARRAY. The peripherals of this film seem like something Netflix would actively promote.

I watched it with someone who just knew the term Prison Industrial Complex by name only. He was initially hazy on why it was called 13th at all. As for myself, I was a part of an anti-prison school group that worked against the GEO Group. That was 3-4 years ago and I have done nothing since. So I do have knowledge, but not working knowledge of the prison system in the US. With that said, I would say this film is a good primer of the issues of mass incarceration. 

The best thing the film does is chart the history of mass incarceration from reconstruction through Jim Crow, the Government reaction to the Civil Rights and Black Power Movements & their aftermath, into the Post-Regan era of Mass Incarceration. At the same time detailing how integral, yet often intentionally invisibly so, the prison system is to US society. I was legitimately shocked it went into ALEC. 

But the film is lacking. I am writing this freshly seeing it so please bear with me if this section is kinda muddled.

First, the section on the prosecution of Zimmerman was lacking. And this could be because I’m a Floridian but Angela Corey needed to be mentioned and the disparity of her handling of the Zimmerman case and her handling of Marissa Alexander’s case is very telling. At the same time, Angela was notorious for sending minors to adult prisons. In actuality the Zimmerman section should have been her section to segue into the School-to-Prison Pipeline. That is the single biggest missing part of the doc. How our schools, particularly those in impoverished neighborhoods, are designed to prep and send it’s students to prison. To my mind a documentary on prison is unthinkable without a section on the School-to-Prison Pipeline. 

Next, no mention of how American brand prison (either American companies like GEO or, more menacingly, the idea of mass incarceration) is exported globally like G4S (British based; operating infamously in Palestine). Bush Jr’s War on Terror, specifically Abu Ghraib & Guantanamo Bay, should have been mentioned.

And speaking of presidents whose involvement in Mass Incarceration is noticeably skipped over, no mention of Obama’s policies especially toward undocumented immigrants. 

There is no straightforward mention of LGBT anti-prison work. CeCe McDonald or  Reina Gossett would have been excellent choices to interview. [EDIT] Importantly CeCe, a black transwoman held in a men’s prison, said of her experience that being held in a women’s prison would not have made her safer because “No prison is safe”.

I will default to women on this point but I think the film lacked proper analysis of women in prison. No mention that black women since about the dawn of the new millennium have been the fastest growing demographic in prison populations. No mention of forced sterilization and Mass Incarceration as population control. And the statistic, last I checked, on black women in prison is overwhelmingly women in their reproductive years. Meaning, the prison system scoops up women in their reproductive prime and holds them past it. To recall the point of Obama, the film does not state that the FBI in 2013 listed Assata Shakur on its most wanted terrorist list, the first woman in its history. Where the fuck was Saidiya Hartman? You got fucking Van Jones & Corey Booker??? But not Saidiya Hartman…ok.

Very little is said about recidivism. And the section on probation and parole would have been a good spot to talk about that. [EDIT] It was mentioned but not impacted how nonviolent felony offenders can’t get public housing, food stamps, etc. In addition, many state’s make people pay for their incarceration in some manner. The impact is: You can’t get a job, food, a house…so you resort back to crime. Putting you in prison again. 

An important conversation about the nomenclature of this phenomenon was not had.Prison Industrial Complex or Mass Incarceration? Is it primarily a capitalistic endeavor or it is mostly population control? 

Solutions. Every time I hear Angela Davis talk about Mass Incarceration, she always mentions reparative justice and gives examples (see Are Prisons Obsolete, her speech at FIU, etc) of how it works in operation. I know many prison abolitionists, in solidarity with the Palestinian movement, adopt a BDS-like plan to stop Mass Incarceration. Alternatives including community outreach, raising the minimum wage, healthcare exists in cities across the country that ameliorate Mass Incarceration. Was it Detroit that recently used meditation as opposed to detention for kids? [EDIT] It was the Robert W. Coleman Elementary School in Baltimore, MD. 

Finally, there’s a section that offers pitiful debate over whether or not the video & images of dead black people should be seen. 1 person spoke out against it. And the film is clearly in favor showing such images throughout. Firehoses, dogs, lynching, phone footage, CCTV footage are shown throughout the film. And again, as I’ve been saying for years now it is not necessary. At these parts I just looked away. Whenever such images are shown I leave the room. So for me this was the first time hearing these unarmed black men’s murder. Most of my followers know that Saidiya Hartman quote that I seem to have to post every week so I won’t link to it here. But, I cannot stress that these images are really damaging & their intended purpose has proven ineffectual. 

The realities of expecting a 100 minute film to cover everything (thoroughly) is ludicrous.  And I’ve mentioned this before, good film criticism can take what a film lacks and supply that to the without disparaging the film or the limits of the medium. I usually like to link to research and info on posts like this but its 2am now and I’m going to bed. Google and Youtube can point you to where you need to go if you need statistics and such.

Geobuddies personalities in a nutshell: desert edition!

Geo dude 1: first to scale vertical cliffs, experienced off roader, lives breathes and sleeps geology.
Geo dude 2: says “fuck” every six seconds, wore his button-up with exactly one button in the middle done, most likely to survive in the wilderness with nothing but his wits and a good stick.
Geo dude 3: Canadian, only brought flip flops (for a fourteen day hiking trip), likes to stand precariously close to ledges and twang when he sings.
Geo dude 4: carries six liters of water, laughs readily and wonderfully, will probably ski down a slope a lil without meaning to at some point.
Geo dude 5: collects cool looking rocks, sleeps in the van during Just Guys Being Dudes: Dirt Edition live podcast.
Geo dude 6: fossil jock, great puns, holds lengthy but not overbearing conversations.
Geo dude 7: Chief, aka our prof.
Geo dude 8: almost-forgot to tag, inoffensive, drank four cups of coffee at complementary breakfast, could probably wrestle a bear.

Geo gal 1: bae, snarky sense of humor, mom friend.
Geo gal 2: actual mom, super chill, most likely to survive the whole trip sane.
Geo gal 3: roomie, struggling, fellow English major turned geologist.
Geo gal 4 - me!: Ultra Nerd, outpaced almost everybody on the hike, saw SO MUCH cool stuff, had a kickass time on the rocks.

Geo will not be allowed to talk to my hand ever again. @legendwaker
