Warriors documentary in the works
Comic book love and art
The nature of artistic taste
The Tinkerbell effect

The ethics of directing actors
Can we appreciate the art while also condemning the artist?, i.e., can we separate the art and the artist?
James - Mandarin
金盆洗手 Jīn pén xǐ shǒu: lit. wash one’s hands in a golden basin, to turn over a new leaf, move from gangster life to a legitimate life.
