I Love Neo Noir - 4oct21

I love Neo Noir,

when it is done well.

I think of “Brick”

set in high school,

in contemporary times;

and though nary a fedora

nor a trench coat can be found

it is Noir.

We follow the protagonist,

who is by no means charismatic

or wealthy or even tough;

he loses every fight

and frequently has his ass handed to him.

But like all good Noirs

what he lacks in brawn

he makes up for

in intelligence and intuition;

reminding us that though the world be wicked

a clever underdog

can think his way out.

Let us conclude

with a simple

call to action

In the Tibetan tradition Lamas are supported

not by monasteries but by students

as such the production of these livestreams,

blogs, and class materials is supported

by the generosity of viewers, and listeners, and readers

just like you.
