Just because it's fiction, that doesn't mean it's not true. Saying it doesn't matter because it's only science fiction sounds like self-loathing, to me.

Speaking of public ownership of art, have you seen Sita Sings the Blues? It's a really cool animated retelling of the story of Sita, from Indian myth. It's really good, and the author has made it available for full, DRM-free download.

Weird. I went moved in the same circles at school as the person who made this film (Nina Paley) and was literally just thinking about her yesterday. Thanks for posting this for a couple of reasons. :)

Oh, cool. I'm going to post this to my LJ too. Thank you! (I know you weren't telling me about it, but I'm here and I saw it, so...)
