if jacob wohl weren't such a dipshit i'd think his "warren fucked a marine so hard he never recovered" was a brilliant scheme to peel support from sanders to warren
"Woke" originates as a AAVE term used in earnest in reference to being conscious of ways white supremacy enforces and reproduces itself in policing of language, media image and dominant culture, as you may see elucidated in Frantz Fanon's writings and others
so like, when people are saying "it's not 'woke culture' it's just being conscientious of the so and so" there's a factor distinct from "PC" of taking language marginalized people used among themselves and ceding it to the reactionaries
reactionary whinging over 'woke culture' is obviously rebranding the same complaining about 'political correctness' but there's an interesting difference in provenance
'politically correct' was a tongue-in-cheek term used between leftists ribbing on various disciplines, then later wielded as a cudgel by reactionaries in the early 90s in response to the madness of "maybe dial back the racism" and "gays should be allowed to exist" etc

Rasen was not the breakout commercial success Ringu was, though, so they took a different direction narratively with Ring 2 and the rest of that series - but, the Rasen thread was picked up again years later with SADAKO 3D which as near as i can tell is bonkers, and i want to ready myself fully for it
with any luck this will not prevent me from going another night without sleep. I am banking on last night's scary ghost-induced insomnia making me too exhausted to happen again.
Anyway. Last night I finally got around to watching Sadako vs Kayako. It was fun! It had that good claustrophobic omnipresent dread and bonkers shock-horror that makes Ringu and Ju-On work so well.
The downside was that I'd wished they'd picked up more cues from kaiju eiga and made the actual titular fight more than like, one minute long, but while it was happening I was like woo! Haha! Yeah yeah yeah! And then I did NOT sleep at all because I was afraid of scary ghosts.
like, exactly this, it's wild to watch. They just slathered visual and auditory noise all over it like so much mayonnaise
