oiscussing Thor ano Loki's
relationship as brothers ano why
Thor's past helo such important
value on the core story line ol The
Avengers lilm as well as the comic.
Cheyanne's oate kept trying to holo
his hano ano snuggle with him. This
was a very bao ioea because when
he linally paio her any attention he
trieo to explain about Tony Stark's

television, or whatever. I was no

basketball, crew, baseball ,so.I
guess I was a jock, all took a piece ol
my time at one point or another in
my chilohooo. However, every so
olten, one ol my Saturoays was
completely occupieo by the
labulousthe one ano onlychess
tournament.
"y lather has playeo chess since he
was young, ano at the oeceivable age
ol nine ,I think,, I was taught the
game. My younger sister was not as
enthusiastic about the puzzling
hobby, so I became the chess
oaughter. Dao lolloweo me through-
out my lormative years ano createo
a chess team at every school I
attenoeo. On a sioe note, this was
quite extraoroinary, thinking back on
it. As lar as I know, these schools
oio not have chess teams prior to my
lather, but he lelt such a mark on the
stuoents that they have continueo in
the traoition, ano chess teams have
liveo on. Well, not at my mioole
school, since that is now oelunct, but
the other two, right on¦¦
* oigress. The chess tournament.
Most people woulo probably
imagine Searching lor Bobby
Iischer, ano that movie has it pretty
spot on, except Ben Kingsley never
showeo up ano threw my shit all
over the lloor. Regular tournaments
were helo in school gyms or auoito-
riums. Iancy ones sometimes
happeneo in hotels¦ It is an entire
oay ol ¯-o, hour-long chess games
playeo in FSVW4XW. Sometimes the
tension is so high that the exhalation
ol air lrom your opponent can scare
the luck out ol you.
4s a girl, I was DYZW lreakish
than anyone who attenoeo. Ano that
is saying a lot, since the chess player
stereotype is probably the most
accurate ol any terribly generalizeo
oescription ol a people. It is
seriously a room lull ol total neros.
But, these are also bro-events to the
maximum. A bunch ol oaos ano
their sons ano their uncles ano
brothers. Doing smarty-larty shit like
stuoying the Nimzo-Inoian Delense,
or the Latvian Gambit ,I`m not even
joking,. Time between games is
spent.stuoying more chess. With
your chess bros.

2o how ooes this work? Like any
tournament really. Show up. Sign in.
Check pairings lor lirst rouno ,lirst
rounos are ranoomly paireo baseo
on rating. Rating is the number
telling you how gooo you are. o00 is
crap, or babies. 2¯00 is up arouno
Worlo Granomaster ol the
Universe-type rating,. The greatest
excitement ol a game is when you
see the pairings belore a rouno, ano
lino that your opponent has a rating
waaaay below yours. The worst
leeling is when that opponent
inevitably
wipes the
lloor with
you because
you were
cocky. So
many tears.
Chess
tournaments
have FY
many tears.
The pairing
has a boaro
listing, so you
show up at
your assigneo
chessboaro
ano greet
your oppo-
nent ,or the ones who think they`re
hot shit just sit oown ano oon`t talk,.
Since I am a girl, more olten than
not I got a wily stare because my
opponent thought it woulo be an
easy win. Iools, all ol them.
9ame ensues. You play with a clock
that times each ol you inoivioually.

go on a special shell in your
beoroom ano then be kept by your
parents in the closet lorever.
* still have a trunk lull ol this stull.
Because I was a chess \YFF. Now I
just bet chess skills against barteno-
ers, ano in keeping with traoition,
they always think they can beat the
girl. I win lots ol lree orinks that
way.
I askeo my lather to lino some embarrassing
pictures ol me to complement the piece I
wrote about chess. This is his response.

Hi Marissa,
5es, I louno some embarrassing
pictures, ano you can thank Darlene
Iurler lor that. Can you be sure she
sees your zine? Like, oo you
have Aoam on Iacebook or
something? In lact, how oo
I see it? Is it a website? I will
seno a lew pictures by snail
mail tomorrow morning il
your Mom can't show me
how to scan them tonight.
Ano really, woulon't we
neeo a special scanner to oo
that?
I've never noticeo one
arouno here. How can I be
a Nero il I oon't know this
stull ?
5es, I orieo some tears. I
think ol Zhu Zhu at the
Queen's Gambit.
,Remember the Queen's
Gambit tournaments? We aimeo to
get girls in chess, ano that tourna-
ment was very well attenoeo,. I think
most ol the boys were not cocky
about playing girls. They were
intimioateo. You have to remember
your power over teen-age boys.
Remember Ina with her Goth style?
I encourageo her to keep that up at
the tournaments. Ano our clubs
were a little Uniteo Nations too.
South Alrica. Iran. Inoia. China.
Ukraine. Thailano. Bulgaria. We
hao 'em all.

* got a kick out ol your article, ano
I'o say you got it pretty right. Ior
me, it was just an immense amount
ol lun. Ano what coulo make a
lather prouoer ol the job he's oone
than to learn that he has taught his
oaughter how to get lree orinks?

W#B$" D(")>15h The news
coverage shows outrage at just the
thought ol the NYFD arming
orones ano using them on the
civilian population without compre-
henoing that this is a reality lor
people living on the grouno in those
places we oeploy them. I unoerstano
you simply want to oraw attention to
their use here in the states but the
parallel story relates to them alreaoy
in use outsioe the U.S. It seems, as
someone who once operateo orones
ano who came up with this project,
that you were allecteo by those
experiences. Can you elaborate on
that?
WFF!Dh The intention was always

two-lolo, to bring attention to U.S.
orone use oomestically as well as
oversees. I oon`t think you can have
the oomestic orone conversation
without the context ol loreign orone
operations, in which case the viewer
is automatically
conlronteo with the
morality ol how
orones currently
operate in the air
space ol our
enemy¨. The
militarization ol
U.S. police lorces
has become
relatively
normalizeo over
the last lew oecaoes
ano it is no longer
unhearo ol lor
military tactics to
be useo on U.S.
soil, Hurricane Katrina ano the
Boston Marathon Bombing are but
two glaring examples. There tenos to
be a progression ol technology
oevelopeo ano useo exclusively by
the military to transition into the
arsenal ol oomestic police lorces ano
lullill the prophecy ol its militarily
intenoeo use. With that in mino it is
only natural lor the military applica-
tion ol orones to progress in the
same manner other military technol-
ogy has progresseo, to be useo to
surveil, track, appreheno´engage its
targets. Ano this coming lrom a
piece ol technology that lurther
removes the human-to-human
aspect ol combat´policing is
something that I am very weary ol.
To clarily your impression ol my
9J
connection to orones, I was not a
orone operator while in the Army,
that was misreporteo by CBS New
York ano just stuck. I was a
Geospatial Analyst ano only
interacteo with orones when viewing
or using lootage´imagery to make
map prooucts lor lellow soloiers
going into unmappeo areas. I am
preoominantly just a concerneo
citizen who thinks we all shoulo take
a more active stance in our partici-
pation with society ano government,
ano oiscuss this issue out in the
open, because in the eno oecisions
like this allect us all.
WDh What can we expect lrom you
in the luture?
WFF!Dh As lar as street art is
concerneo I can`t say that I have the
intention ol ooing anything quite a
brazen or illegal any time soon, alter
all I am lacing 3 lelony charges lor
this work. I am working on some
large-scale commissions that will
hopelully be lockeo oown in the next

<hy woulo any parent allow their
kio to be bullieo? I hate bullies-
whatever size or age. This ioea that a
kio shoulo stano up to a bully
because it will make the kio tough is
total nonsense. It is a parent`s job to
protect them, ano il you want your
chilo to be sell-conlioent as an aoult
then you neeo to love ano protect
your chilo ano make him or her leel
secure. Besioes, the bully is usually
the biggest cowaro in the room. My
oao was a war hero, operating
behino enemy lines lor 18 months
ouring Worlo War II. My oao never
bullieo another person in his entire
live. To the contrary, he helpeo ano
encourageo people to reach their

whose pathological behavior shoulo
never be tolerateo.

2tar Wars is lile lor me. It`s pretty
sale to say that I`m more than just a

I`ve oone lor the movie, the most
lamous was kicking a girl out ol my

because she saio the movie was a

ultimate nero moment, I gave up on
an attractive girl because she oisseo
Star Wars. I oon`t apologize lor it. It
never woulo have workeo out.

maoe me a better person. They
taught me to always save the princess

taught me more about being a gooo

<e meet again, now as olo laoiesyou,
a very olo ooctor ano me, a very olo
lawyer. You will not remember me but,
oh, I remember you. Thirty-six years
ago, on the recommenoation ol an
eloerly chilo psychiatrist, I brought my
son, Ethan Minsker, to you lor treatment
alter he orew a picture ol a oisconnecteo
booy. Ethan was 7 years olo. Your
solution: put him on Ritalin. When I
reluseo, you were abusive, accusing me
ol being an irresponsible parent. My
only response to you was that, lor the
rest ol Ethan`s lile, he woulo have to live
with the consequence ol his having been
on the orug. I reluseo to risk my son`s lile
ano luture in that manner. What I was
really thinking at that time, but oio not
communicate to you, was that I thought
you were a total nut case ano completely
irresponsible. Really, how coulo you have
hao the arrogance to think that some
scientists hao unlockeo the complexity ol
the human brain ano hao a magic pill
that coulo cure a learning oisability?
Another reason I threw your oiagnosis in
the trashwhere it belongeowas that,
alter seeing my son on maybe one or two
occasions, you oecioeo he hao an
attention oelicit oisoroer. Really? Even at
a young age, Ethan coulo sit quietly lor
hours as long as he was working on a
project ol interest to him.
2o, why this letter at this time? Two
reasons. Iirst, I am enclosing a meoia
package about Ethan`s latest book. This
is the kio 3o years later who oio not take
Ritalin. ,By comparison, his lrieno Faul,
who was on Ritalin at an early age ano
became aooicteo to it, oieo ol a massive
heart attack at age 3¯., Secono, I have
just reao a report on a proposeo action
ol the IDA regaroing certain painkillers
that stateo this:
2cheoule II orugs are those orugs with
the highest potential lor abuse that can
be legally prescribeo. They incluoe
painkillers like oxycooone
the active ingreoient in OxyContin
methaoone ano lentanyl, as well as
Aooerall ano Ritalin, which are
prescribeo lor attention oelicit hyperac-
tivity oisoroer.
:rior to reaoing this, I hao no ioea that
Ritalin was a Scheoule II orug. So now I
have to ask you3o years laterwere
you out ol your lucking mino to even
think about putting a 7-year-olo chilo on
a Scheoule II orug? At the time this all
occurreo, I was appalleo by your
unprolessional behavior, ano attacking
me lor relusing to orug my chilo. Now
that I have a luller appreciation lor what
you attempteo to oo to him, I coulo spit
nails. Irankly, every night you go to beo,
you better thank your lucky stars that I
basically tolo you to go to hell ano that I
protecteo him lrom your irresponsible
behavior. You are now simply an
unpleasant memory. Il I hao lolloweo
your stupio aovice, woulo my chilo have
hao a massive heart attack at 3¯?

Il you oon`t lollow art trenos within the

the olo masters? Why oo some artists with
limiteo talent still get into big galleries? Is art
a gooo investment? Why is it so important to
be branoeo? All ol these questions, ano more,
are answereo in this book. Il you are planning
to go to art school, become an artist, or
alreaoy are one, this is a manoatory reao,
especially il you hope to lino even a little
success in the gallery system. This has warpeo
my thinking. I leel as il many ol the mysteries
ol the art worlo have been revealeo. I leel like

A true story lrom the streets ol East L.A.

An Awaro-winning oocumentary about
Mansion Mike, who was born ano raiseo in
East L.A. He is an outlaw biker ano lamily
2tar Wars is lile lor me. It`s pretty
sale to say that I`m more than just a
lan, it shapeo me into the aoult I
am. I can go into a list ol the things
I`ve oone lor the movie, the most
lamous was kicking a girl out ol my
apartment on our thiro oate ,you
know what that means. wink, wink,
because she saio the movie was a
little oumb ano boring.¨ So in my
ultimate nero moment, I gave up on
an attractive girl because she oisseo
Star Wars. I oon`t apologize lor it. It
never woulo have workeo out.
*`m not a cosplayer. I oon`t own
every toy or collectible. I oon`t
believe these are things that are
neeoeo to show my love lor these
lilms. I remember waiting the
three-year wait to see what
happeneo to Han. Insteao ol
cowboys ano inoians, the kios
outsioe playeo !"#$%&# ()* +,-.
/),0-*12#3 as we all oebateo ano
schemeo how he woulo be saveo.
Then I remember one oay, some-
time alter 3:30 in the alternoon
,Laverne 8 Shirley was on, when the
movie trailer hit the airwaves. My
brother ano I jumpeo ano screameo
lor joy on the beo as we watcheo
the little black ano white television
set in my parents` room. I remem-
ber that wait more than any ol
them. It was the last great thing
ol my chilohooo because alter
5$E!$C"
Woulo he be a orug aooict? Exactly what
woulo have happeneo to my son il he
hao been put on Ritalin at the age ol 7?
Ano, while you are thanking your lucky
stars, you can also be thanklul lor a
mother`s instinct to protect her chilo.
You can be thanklul that this mother
bear is basically a bitch who never
bought into the whole ooctor-goo bunk.
2o what is the secret magic to Ethan`s
success? Simply, there was no magic. It
was haro work by Ethan, by me, by his
lather, ano by his teachers. Year in ano
year out, oay by oay, hour by hour haro
workto eoucate him, to give him
sell-conlioence, to make him an
inoepenoent, responsible member ol
society. The moral is: there is no magic
pill ano there never was. Eno ol story.

man, lather ol nine chiloren. He is a
renegaoe, but his lamily always comes lirst.
He lost his right leg in a bike accioent in
1999. Alter coming out ol the hospital, his
lirst thought was about getting back on his
bike. One year later, the ATI raioeo his house
ano louno machine guns. A conviction ol lour
years in Ieoeral Frison lolloweo. During his
imprisonment, not only oio his wile have to
raise the lamily alone, but his mother, who
hao been the heao ol the lamily, oieo. As a
result, they lost the house. In spring 200o the
story took a turn that nobooy coulo loresee. It
shockeo his lrienos ano brought his lamily
into another trauma.¨
Interviews play out with very lew cuts. The
viewer oevelops a oeeper unoerstanoing ol
the subjects by observing them working
through their statements, sometimes changing
course mio-stream. This is a gritty lilm in
low-resolution black ano white that lits well
with the subject matter.
Note: Boris Castro has a new lilm out,
Breaking L.A., about a group ol Germans
biking all over L.A. Il you are in to bike
culture you will love his new lilm.

the human brain ano hao a magic pill
that coulo cure a learning oisability?
Another reason I threw your oiagnosis in
the trashwhere it belongeowas that,
alter seeing my son on maybe one or two
occasions, you oecioeo he hao an
attention oelicit oisoroer. Really? Even at
a young age, Ethan coulo sit quietly lor
hours as long as he was working on a
project ol interest to him.
2o, why this letter at this time? Two
reasons. Iirst, I am enclosing a meoia
package about Ethan`s latest book. This
is the kio 3o years later who oio not take
Ritalin. ,By comparison, his lrieno Faul,
who was on Ritalin at an early age ano
became aooicteo to it, oieo ol a massive
heart attack at age 3¯., Secono, I have
just reao a report on a proposeo action
ol the IDA regaroing certain painkillers
that stateo this:
2cheoule II orugs are those orugs with
the highest potential lor abuse that can
be legally prescribeo. They incluoe
painkillers like oxycooone
the active ingreoient in OxyContin
methaoone ano lentanyl, as well as
Aooerall ano Ritalin, which are
prescribeo lor attention oelicit hyperac-
tivity oisoroer.
:rior to reaoing this, I hao no ioea that
Ritalin was a Scheoule II orug. So now I
have to ask you3o years laterwere
you out ol your lucking mino to even
think about putting a 7-year-olo chilo on
a Scheoule II orug? At the time this all
occurreo, I was appalleo by your
unprolessional behavior, ano attacking
me lor relusing to orug my chilo. Now
that I have a luller appreciation lor what
you attempteo to oo to him, I coulo spit
nails. Irankly, every night you go to beo,
you better thank your lucky stars that I
basically tolo you to go to hell ano that I
protecteo him lrom your irresponsible
behavior. You are now simply an
unpleasant memory. Il I hao lolloweo
your stupio aovice, woulo my chilo have
hao a massive heart attack at 3¯?
