A definite contender for the "probably awkward"! You should probably talk about Foucault here. This facility apparently prides itself on its technique of distracting inmates from forming prison gangs via "physical fitness." (I looked it up.) It's especially eerie since extrajudicial killings and political prisoners are on the rise in the Philippines. You can't tell from this video, though.


I don't feel awkward or conflicted at all about the performance. I just thought it was great. Foucault Schmoucault.


i rather enjoyed that philippino prisoners were having the Best. Week. Ever. on the strength of this video. though, like the nobel prize, i like to think that this award was given them on the strength of their entire oeuvre.

  • If Ayn Rand and Walter Benjamin got in a cage fight and then made up over foie gras, single malt scotch and indie pop, you'd have the delightful adventures of "That Was Probably Awkward." Plus or minus the single malt and foie gras, depending on the week's finances. But always the indie pop. Sad, stirring indie pop. And a decent happy hour.
