Maybe I just missed some tapes, but what does Kaz do to paz in GZ besides call her a bitch and blame her when he gets angry? I was under the impression it was mostly skullface.

That’s exactly what he does.

It’s incredibly hypocritical of Kaz to call Paz a bitch and blame her for the destruction of Mother Base when he himself had been working for Zero during the construction of Mother Base. Kaz had no right whatsoever of calling her a traitor.

I understand Kaz was not himself at the time, he was VISIBLY upset because of what had just happened, but that doesn’t excuse his actions at all. The name calling isn’t even the worst part. He touches her shoulders and shakes her while calling her names, despite the fact that she’s unconscious and has just had a bomb removed from her stomach without anesthetics.

She’s completely messed up and Kaz is not helping at all.

By the time GZ starts, we can assume Kaz is no longer working with Zero. He only started working with him in order to help expand MSF and the Mother Base and it’s no secret that he cares deeply for this organization he helped create from the ground up with Big Boss. However, I hardly believe that’s an excuse to act as he did towards Paz just because she couldn’t get away from Zero the way he did.

Paz gives many hints that she would like to leave Zero behind. In PW, if you listen to Paz’s diary tapes (also included in GZ), during the last tapes, she visibly regrets doing what she did, and shows strong belief that she wanted to stay with Big Boss and the others because she started caring for them, However, it was all irrelevant because she CAN’T refuse Zero’s order (which led to Zeke’s sabotage in an attempt to both halt Zero’s plans AND still make it sound as though it wasn’t her fault). But Kaz, whom she didn’t know was also working for Zero, foiled her plans because he told Zero himself Zeke was completed (Kaz regretted it later when he realized Zero wanted to use Zeke to launch a nuke, but by then it was too late). Also in GZ, in one of the tapes, after she’s broken and hopeless and almost giving up on ever escaping Skullface’s tortures, she asks him “Will you do that for me?” referring to him wiping out Zero, in a clear demonstration that she wasn’t working for Zero because she wanted to, but because she had to.

Kaz got Paz involved in all of it. He was the one who brought her to Mother Base, he was spying on her for Zero, all so he could achieve his selfish dreams of building Mother Base, which is admirable, yes, but he was responsible, partly, for everything she had been through.

And in the end, when Skullface bombs Mother Base and nearly destroys MSF entirely, he still blames her for it. There’s even a scene showing the doctor who removed the bomb from inside her trying to restrain him.

Don’t get me wrong, I like Kaz to an extent, but I also believe he has to be called out on his stupid actions and how hypocritical it was of him.

100% agree, I love Kaz dearly, but he’s a big ass hypocrite, much like his boss — I thought I was the only one who noticed this, and that Kaz really isn’t much better (if not worse). But this is probably only the beginning, I’m pretty sure TPP will have Kaz and BB literally blame everyone else for all the shit that happens, I doubt they’ll admit at any point that they are, at least, also partly at fault. It’s a vicious cycle at this point, a downwards spiral, in that more and more people get dragged into this by others — the only reason Kaz got involved was because of Big Boss, who would not let him go when they first met.

In that context, I believe this is actually something GZ does consciously. By including all the tapes, including the Paz Diary, you are supposed to really feel for Paz, and that she’s a victim in this whole mess — yet in the end she’s the one getting blamed and called a traitor out of sheer anger, fear, and selfishness.

(Also interesting that the Japanese version includes the FIRST ENCOUNTER tracks, giving even more context to BB and Kaz and their motivations and how fixated they are on the idea of MSF, and quite willing to go to extreme lengths to achieve and protect their own dreams)

I'm studying art and apparently fashion isn't art, why so?

holographing:

whole buncha reasons, i think the main one is that fashion cant be separated from its economic counterpart (ie fashion is business) and although the art industry is rapidly changing so it too is very economic, art is perceived as more of a cultural production than industry. i guess its something like where art can “transcend” its commodity status, fashion is almost always viewed as commodity
