Typowy Jędrzej – student filmoznawstwa
He has been fooling around on the internet for the past eight years and proving that you don’t have to use words like ‘transcendence’, ‘narrative strategy’ and ‘demiurge’ in every other sentence to write about criticism. You can write simple words like “szyneczka” (ham) and “papucie” (slippers) and engage the community with that. He uses CAPS continuously and avoids showing his face because someone once told him that you can be anything you want on the internet.
