  • My Barbarian has started their performance at #ctsummit … and it’s lame. Why did the people at the door take away my coffee? ARGH! #
  • My Barbarian performing at #CTsummit http://t.co/GOth813u #
  • I bet you My Barbarian does birthday parties and corporate conferences. #CTsummit #
  • The anti-drug message on stage is disturbing. Is this a self-help clinic? Am I in rehab? #CTsummit #thoughtsofacaffeinestarvedBrooklynite #
  • I have to say that @GRITlaura is a good keynote speaker. This thing is getting better. #CTSummit #
  • Think @GRITlaura‘s idea of corporate vs public media is simplistic. Public media also about indoctrinating public w gov’t ideals #CTsummit #

  • They’re adhering to a strick time schedule at #CTsummit some peeps just got hooked. #

  • Ok, Decolonizing Architecture is a fascinating presentation.. You should watch. http://t.co/tAftruQi #CTsummit #
  • I think the non-American presentations have been MUCH more interesting than the US ones. Sad reality. #CTsummit #
  • “All efforts to create politics as aesthetics have ended in one thing, war.” I’m paraphrasing (NSK) Neue Slowenische Kunst. #CTsummit #
  • Ok, now VOINA is here. #CTsummit #
  • VOINA said a few words and now they are showing a video presentation…I wanted them to speak! #CTSummit #
  • Of course, VOINA’s “homosexuals” are pretty much dressed in drag. Sorry I didn’t wear my drag today, people. #CTsummit #
  • It’s strange to hear people laugh at VOINA’s work (laughing with them?) considering I know serious consequences they’ve faced. #CTSummit #
  • VOINA didn’t talk about any of the criminal prosecution they’ve faced. That’s strange. #CTsummit #
