Blah blah blah technoscientific imaginaries anthropology at war ethics of conformed insent blah blah blah. How about some pressing news about some real anthropology for a change. Like say
“The Vanity Fair exclusive on Indiana Jones And The Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull“:http://www.vanityfair.com/culture/features/2008/02/indianajones200802
Anthropologists have a love/hate relationship with Indiana Jones, just as cineastes have a love/hate relationship with Spielburg-Lucas. Its just fascinating to imagine an increasingly-venerable piece of pop culture maturing into “a franchise with a new lease on life”:http://www.vanityfair.com/culture/features/2008/02/indy_update200802. At the moment, however, all of my obsessive fandom energy is going into staring at this pic of Cate Blanchett as the Big Bad of Indy IV, “Agent Spalko”:http://www.vanityfair.com/images/culture/2008/02/cuar03w_indianajones0802.jpg.
Bangs… so… sharp…
