Welcome to “White Elephant Sale” on the What’s The Matter With Me? Podcast
In this episode, I went to the annual White Elephant Sale in my wheelchair and thought about my identity, identity politics and representation.
Fishy Yellow Mess
- Turmeric supplement broken bottle
- Nami said getting an apology from a chatbot is unsatisfying. She said it’s because you don’t feel magnanimous accepting the apology of a robot.
- white elephant sale was accessible in my wheelchair. Some parts were very tight, but I made it work. That place is full of great junk
- I thought I was gonna have my teeth, and I don’t have my teeth (yet)
- I have changed my identity and become a disabled person and in that way I understand something about intersectional identity
- There are People that change their identity on purpose. I feel some kinship with them because my identity has changed, even though I didn’t do it on my own.
- Viewing others with unmarked male gaze is no longer possible
- I used to think that identity art was silly, because I questioned its relevance to art.
- My thinking about the importance of identity, identity art, and identity politics has grown and changed just as my identity has grown and changed through maturation and enduring chronic disability
- I’m dreaming up a Mayhem special for KFJC about disabled musicians. Something featuring disabled artists like Cedell Davis, Beethoven, Rahsaan Roland Kirk, Stevie Wonder, Blind Uncle Gaspard, Israel Vibration, Ian Drury, Dax Pierson, and more.
