The Answer-Man's mailbox runneth over this week. But only one question caught my eye.

Another variation on
• Can Superman actually fight?
• Isn't he just a brawler?

Let's deconstruct this:

@MarkBrooksArt #DepoweredSuperman
Q: Shouldn't Superman innately be good at combat?
A: Who says he isn’t?

Is it the fan who wants to say Batman is a better fighter because he’s been training since he was a teenager with his vaunted 127 martial arts?

Cool story, bro.
Or another fan who says that Wonder Woman is better because she’s been training to kill gods on Themyscira since she was a child?

Superman is a better fighter than both of them.

There. I said it.

Why? Because his mind is better than a Human one. He has total recall.

#FarmersProtests Goes Vogue] exploring sudden #celebrity uptake - as gov't struggled to contain #resistance.

Here we can study #GlobalCitizen & structure/mechanisms of such NGOs, financed to serve corporate/imperial interests. ImageImageImageImage
#GlobalCitizen model: nurturing of #celebrity worship as a "pop & policy" model to harvest/exploit targeted youth demographic. Via partnerships w/ #Rihanna, celebrities, influencers, athletes, - it intends to become world's "leading international voice, educator, & influencer". ImageImageImageImage
#GlobalCitizen is the Global Poverty Project, Inc.

Interesting @ForeignPolicy read: "Perhaps no other sectors have been hit as hard by the coronavirus pandemic as those that enrich and entertain us, from culture and the arts to sports and entertainment." #popculture #TheArts…
#FACTS! "While I can’t predict the future, I do know that when audiences return, the pandemic's legacy will likely be that it accelerated #TheArts' ability to connect with audiences through technology." — Mark C. Hanson, CEO of @SFSymphony… Image
@EdgeofSports Have you seen this @ForeignPolicy piece? It's mostly specifically about the arts, but there's quite a bit of reflection re: sports thrown in. Curious to hear your thoughts.…

Btw, speaking sending stuff and sharing things ...
I don't think I've yet shared the news (on Twitter) that I'm speaking at @TheHPAlliance #CampGLA on Saturday @ 1:30pm!!! Soooo looking forward to this. Image
If you're not familiar with @TheHPAlliance, they're a great groups of folks who use the power of #storytelling & #popculture to make activism accessible & sustainable. #CampGLA

I’d like to use some #popculture to highlight a truly awful, but yet-unmeasured impact of the current #COVID19 pandemic in the U.S.: restrictions on visitors to hospitals.

I’m currently reading Becoming by @MichelleObama. It’s fantastic.

Finished chapter 10 and...
...I couldn’t help but think of the countless people who've been robbed of this type of moment in their own lives because of COVID-19’s effect on hospital visitor policies. Perhaps it is just another unquantifiable tragedy in the midst of many in this pandemic...
...but I think it’s worth highlighting that the human costs of COVID-19 have and will go far beyond the mortality statistics, lost QALYs, etc. COVID-19 will also leave scars on many who never directly encountered the virus.

Just imagine if chapters 9 & 10 of #BecomingMichelle...

Wow. Yeah, not sure their investors are going to like this. Excerpt: "A boycott of advertisers on social media is gaining momentum, and Facebook is the primary target."…
If you're following the Facebook boycott, you may already know @NAACP, @ADL & others joined together to launch the #StopHateforProfit campaign. So far, @patagonia, @REI, @thenorthface and others have joined the boycott.
My firm helps a lot of nonprofits and small business owners build digital fundraising campaigns on Facebook, Google, and other platforms.

On the phone with a friend from back home. She didn't know that @JLo is the reason Google Image Search was created, so I'm telling her the story. #TheArts #STEAM #STEM
Backstory is available in a @GQMagazine article: "People wanted more than just text. This first became apparent after the 2000 #GRAMMYs, where Jennifer Lopez wore a green dress that, well, caught the world's attention." #popculture #thearts
"At the time, it was the most popular search query we had ever seen. But we had no surefire way of getting users exactly what they wanted: @JLo wearing that dress. @Google Image Search was born." #TheArts

Yep. More than a year ago, I said TikTok was the one to watch.…
Excerpt from the article: "Continuing in their wildly coordinated political organizing, K-pop fans, along with TikTok users, apparently sabotaged President Trump’s rally tonight at the BOK Center in Tulsa, Oklahoma."

So far, my @LinkedIn post about @HBO Max pulling #GoneWithTheWind has received 8,600+ views & 145+ comments.… #popculture #SIE #SocialChange
As I wrote in one of my articles for @HuffPost more than a decade ago: Often, the most candid societal insights arrive under the guise of #PopCulture fluff.…
Here's the thing about teaching, speaking, writing & performing one-woman theater shows about #SexualHealth and #HealthyRelationships for the past 15 years — I know abuse when I see it. I know passive-aggressiveness when I see it. And so on.

Eagerly and enthusiastically awaiting the conversation with President @BarackObama. ♥️
For those who don't eat, sleep, and breathe #SexualHealth and #SexEd, this is what we're aiming for. We don't want "they didn't say no". We're want "they gave eager and enthusiastic consent." That's where the bar should be.
YES!!!! 👏 👏 👏 👏 👏 Starting with spoken word!!! Artists will save us. #ArtIsPolitical

I was cited in this @npr article today about Donald Trump’s use of Twitter and the various legal issues under the Presidential Records Act of 1978 and the Presidential and Federal Records Records Act Amendments of 2014. Lots to unpack here. LOTS.
If you’ve ever wondered about the laws that govern Donald Trump’s tweets & typos, you’ll enjoy it. #unpresidented #covfefe #honered #popculture #popcultureclass
Roughly two years ago, I wrote about this a lot. Who knew what we'd be in for...…

"@theresa_may est un peu comme le chevalier noir de #SacréGraal des @montypython ; elle continue de se battre malgré les défaites" @PascalBoniface à #EuropeEnghien19

"Vers 1990, le PIB de la #France était 3 fois celui de la #Chine. Aujourd'hui, le PIB de la Chine est 4 fois celui de la France. Allons-nous rester un nain politique ? Rester somnambule dans cette transformation du monde ?" @PascalBoniface, à #EuropeEnghien19
