Quote of the week

Karen Solie describes what an "Anansi Girl" is or has:
  "a certain undefinable quality. In fact, it is impossible to determine simultaneously both the position and velocity of one or another of us with any degree of accuracy or certainty. An Anansi Girl might be the basis for the initial realization of fundamental uncertainties in the ability to measure more than one quantum variable at a time."

So troubling. Why must they be Anansi Girls, rather than Anansi Women? (recognizing that the question is obvious and banal.) Why must they be tarted up at the dinner table in the promo pic, with their works standing in as consumables? Where are the Anansi Boys?

Well, THAT aside, I think Karen's response sufficiently turns things around.

Oh, agreed. I still want to see the Anansi Transgenders tho...

That campaign can be called "the usual suspects, round two"
