About Stream of Consciousness

We are RobertDenby and ASwampWolf aka "Stream of Conciousness": a pair of grad students specializing in film / video preservation and archiving, and Literary Criticism respectively. We like to talk about the production history and meaning behind pop culture relics, anime, and cinema of every stripe.

We host live-streamed retrospectives and simultaneous discussion on whatever has struck our fancy at least once a week, and with occasional special guests. This space gives us the chance to democratize academic analysis, letting us treat production history, semiotics, and contextual work, as something spontaneous and expressive.

We invite others to watch side by side with us during the streams and participate in our live chat to make an interactive, communal experience. Our space is casual, light hearted, but encourages nuance and the kind of rigor only passion provides! We're excited to see what insights you bring with you, and are happy to see what you have to say!

We've brought our particular analytic, improvised style to bear on media such as: 
  • Revolutionary Girl Utena & Adolescence of Utena
  • Baccano!
  • King of Jazz (1930)
  • The Simpsons
  • Wandering Son
  • Neon Genesis Evangelion
  • The Big O
  • Bonnie and Clyde (1967)
  • FLCL
  • Wallace & Gromit
  • Scarface (1932)
  • Re: Cutie Honey
  • Superman, the 1940s theatrical animated shorts by Fleischer/Famous Studios
  • Oruorane The Cat Player

Do you really REALLY not like capitalism?
Do you like people on film Twitter who make jokes about anime from 15+ years ago?
Do you want at least 7 more weird flicks to add to your "movies I have to watch" list?
Do you casually read Deleuze's Cinema and think it could use more @dril jokes?
Do you like Queer-led, Queer-Affirming Spaces???

Maybe this is your kinda conversation space then?????

Well pragmatically, streaming anywhere that isn't on Twitch is mighty pricey, so your support keeps the lights on in our little venue! It also helps us, like, eat, and live which is pretty choice. We also want to use the funds to upgrade our audio equipment, and if this becomes something we can spend a fair amount of time doing, work on putting in more panache and production value overall into these events. Heck if this becomes a viable source of income we could even think about expanding the media and degree of our engagement, and the kinds of critical, comedic, and educational routes we can engage in which is ~*PRETTY WILD*~

Thanks a million for the support ! It means the world to both of us !!!
100% complete

With this amount of support we can put in the extra bit of time and preparation for two streams a week, either as part of a theme or in a different subject matter all together.
