  1. The Big Tech Monopolies and the State /w Grace Blakeley

    As the effects of the coronavirus pandemic swept through the global economy, the average observer could have been forgiven for missing a critical piece of news: by May 2020, the combined market capitalization of the four largest US tech companies reached one fifth of the entire S&P 500. Four companies – Microsoft, Apple, Amazon and Facebook – now account for 20 per cent of the combined value of the 500 largest US corporations – an unparalleled level of market concentration. Forty years ago, these corporate entities were either just beyond being plucky start-ups, or did not even exist. Monopolistic tendencies are not limited to the tech sector. In 1975, the largest 100 US companies accounted for nearly half of the earnings of all publicly listed companies; by 2015, their share reached 84 per cent.

    Capitalist corporations appear monopolistic when they are able to access the investment needed to gain total market dominance – and as the 21st Century has progressed, this has proven easier than ever, especially in big tech. The tech companies emerged in a world of falling profits and associated rising volatility in financial markets – both of which facilitated their access to investment. Many of these companies were initially either unprofitable or loss making, as they had not yet developed to a sufficien…

  2. Chinese Gay Movie Review #32: Your Name Engraved Herein (2020)

    Life keeps getting in the way of us doing videos, but we’re back with our final episode of 2020: a Taiwanese gay film about two boys in a Catholic high school, recently released on Netflix! mcyrk

    Thanks for subscribing and viewing, and look out for more episodes in the new year :)

    FILM English Name: Your Name Engraved Herein (2020) Chinese Name: 刻在你心底的名字 (Kē zài nǐ xīndǐ de míngzì, "The Name Engraved in Your Heart." A line from the film’s theme song.) Origin: Taiwan. Where to Watch: Netflix.

    RATINGS Writing/Storytelling: 5.5/10 Acting: 8/10 Cinematography: 9/10 Hot Guys: 10/10 Chinese Cultural Value: Set in 1987 against the backdrop of major political events in Taiwan (the end of decades of martial law, a president dying in office and the fledgling struggle for LGBT acceptance), but the film doesn’t do a whole lot with these themes once introduced. Most of the screen-time is focused on good old classic Teenage Gay Angst™. Recommended: It’s not bad, but it doesn’t bring a whole lot of new material to the genre. Check out some of the similar earlier films first, such as Eternal Summer (Taiwanese) and Spring Fever (Chinese).

  3. Happy Together (Hong Kong, 1997) Film Discussion

    Wong Kar-Wai’s romantic elegy about two men (played by Tony Leung Chiu Wai and Leslie Cheung) whose relationship falls apart during an extended stay in Buenos Aires. Filled with Wong’s typically inventive visual style and an eclectic, seductive array of music, this is one of the most directly emotional of Wong’s films.
