If you use Netflix, you’ve probably wondered about the specific genres that it suggests to you. Some of them just seem so specific that it’s absurd. Emotional Fight-the-System Documentaries? Period Pieces About Royalty Based on Real Life? Foreign Satanic Stories from the 1980s?
If Netflix can show such tiny slices of cinema to any given user, and they have 40 million users, how vast did their set of “personalized genres” need to be to describe the entire Hollywood universe?
This idle wonder turned to rabid fascination when I realized that I could capture each and every microgenre that Netflix’s algorithm has ever created.
Through a combination of elbow grease and spam-level repetition, we discovered that Netflix possesses not several hundred genres, or even several thousand, but 76,897 unique ways to describe types of movies…
…What emerged from the work is this conclusion: Netflix has meticulously analyzed and tagged every movie and TV show imaginable. They possess a stockpile of data about Hollywood entertainment that is absolutely unprecedented. The genres that I scraped and that we caricature above are just the surface manifestation of this deeper database.
- expectation: capitalism breeds competition which encourages companies to work hard to provide the best possible product / service to the american people!
- reality: capitalism breeds greed which encourages companies to make the biggest possible profit at the lowest possible costs, which results in planned obsolescence, exportation of manufacturing jobs, use of exploitative and abusive labor, flouting laws and regulations, complete disregard for human safety / needs / emotions, and an overall shitty and toxic society that forces people to either play the game or die

So many people walk around with a meaningless life. They seem half-asleep, even when they’re busy doing things they think are important. This is because they’re chasing the wrong things. The way you get meaning into your life is to devote yourself to loving others, devote yourself to your community around you, and devote yourself to creating something that gives you purpose and meaning.
Here’s every outfit I documented for Fatshion February. As you can see, I’ve run the gamut from child baby to adult baby. I’m very versatile.
What I’ve learned about myself is that I’m still afraid, and that I aspire to be more like so many of you who are so goddamn brave and powerful.
There’s no option to hide or blend in the background, and I seem to be allergic to moderation.
PS: I might actually be Adele. Scientists are looking into it, and also into the possibility that I could be Adele and the lady from Criminal Minds at the same time. If I am Adele, where is my money? Why is no one putting me on stage?
