Stitch Talks Ish

This is an absolutely informal, 100% for fun and venting podcast-y attempt where I bring my usual too-rude approach to commenting on fandom and media to a (relatively) regularly scheduled podcast-y setting. Expect lots of snark, intense opinions, and plenty of poking at our problematic faves.

[Stitch Talks Ish] Episode 1: Stitch Talks About The Tablo Podcast’s Episode on Racism

The conversation was like, “This gaping flaw in Black Panther with its representation of Korean people makes it imperfect. I hope that Shang-Chi does better.” I find it really annoying to listen to the folks on this on this episode, number one, lay this weight of representation for East Asian people on Black Panther and black creatives in particular.

They went from rightfully hoping that Shang-Chi would do right by/for East Asian people in the context of representation to going, “Black Panther is proof that the MCU is failing us.”

Episode 2: Stitch Talks About The Rey/Kylo Fandom and Weaponized White Womanhood

One of the things I noticed is how womanhood, especially white womanhood, is weaponized against John Boyega, and against any black man, or man at all, that speaks up. Because one of the first users that showed up was a Twitter account with a black woman, a beautiful profile picture of a black woman, who quote retweeted John’s… something John did. And was like “Oh, as a black woman, I’m disappointed in you. I’m upset I ever defended you.” And turns out that was a catfish using an Instagram models’ selfie, to try and use their blackness to shame him.

 Episode 3 – Stitch Talks Map of the Soul: 7

Regular readers and listeners know that complaining is my love language. The first two episodes of Stitch Talks Ish probably proved that considering that that’s like what… over an hour of me complaining across the episodes?

But we’re breaking from the trend with the third episode of my series where in I give into the urge to get downright obnoxious on main about all things BTS following the release of their seventh studio album (fourth if you’re only counting the Korean ones). Map of the Soul: 7.

Episode 4 – Where Stitch Processes

At this point unless an artist can say with their chest, “I did this either now or in my past and it was wrong” explicitly and plainly, there is no way for any of us to actually know what these idols think about blackness, and Black people, and cultural appropriation and whatever because even the ones born in America fuck up like…

Episode 5 – Returning to the Anitaverse

I’m assuming that, like, at some point, Laurel will get into Kpop and then we’ll all suffer. I don’t know. We’ll see.

Episode 6: When Black Lives Matter, But Black Opinions Don’t

I saw someone say that I was using Black Lives Matter and I wonder if they realize I’m fucking Black –

Like I’m not using shit in my writing: I’m talking about my experiences as a Black person in fandom – many of which are pretty fucking terrible because fandom as a whole, incredibly anti Black.

Episode 7: Stitch Gets Nostalgic

So I’ve been rewatching Cowboy Bebop, which… it’s one of those anime series, like, so talking about other people, like the part of the appeal that maybe I didn’t register when I was like, an 11 year old watching it when it was on Adult Swim, that I do now, is that part of the appeal to Western audiences is is the nostalgia. Because Cowboy Bebop is very much, like, this homage to, to like three different genres of a film. Like, you have western… The western influences really obvious. Oh gosh, so obvious!

Episode 8A: Map of the Soul ON:E – Day One Reaction

But after I watched both nights of the Map of the Soul ON:E concert I recorded reactions pretty instantly so the episodes for the next two parts – so this is 8A and then there will be 8B- are actually kind of on the spot responses to those concerts. So they were made at the ass crack of dawn. So I hope you guys enjoy listening to part one, which was done the Saturday morning after the first night, which was very late. (I don’t know why I did that to myself, but-) Alright, happy listening. Hope you like it.

Episode 8B: Map of the Soul ON:E – Day Two Reaction

This is one of the hardest things we have had to go through as people, so far, in modern history. Because it is- COVID is something on top of everything else. And few places are handling it well. Even in Korea, which is handling it well, they were unable to hold the in person concert version of this because it just takes one person to make everyone sick— because that’s what it does. And um… the re- the reaffirmation that this isn’t our fault, we didn’t do this, and all we can do is just stay safe— it’s just it’s really, really helpful.

[Stitch Talks ish] Episode 9: Stitch Wraps Up One Hell of A Year

For this end of the year wrap up, we’ll be going over questions that I received from friends, and followers on social media. Some of them are from anonymous contributors; others are from people who I know because I- they attach their name. And across this, you’ll get a better understanding of what I’ve been up to in 2020, and what my vibes are at the end of the year. So stick around— lots of good questions coming up.
