Consumerism

So after six weeks of absence I’m back. got a lot of lists for posts started up but just haven’t gotten around to posting with like words and stuff.  Coffee has changed my perspective slightly. You know sometimes you try to strike up a conversation with strangers in public and shit just doesn’t go as well as you’d hoped.  I’m not sure if no one understands me because I’m fucked up or because they’re fucked up or if the whole society as a whole is the culprit.  Thought I’d throw some titles about it out here right quick.

ReGeneration (2010)

I am too awash in ennui to write anything.

Pink Ribbons, Inc. (2011)

http://thinkbeforeyoupink.org/  We know almost nothing about cancer in general.  Cancer is a lot more complicated than people would like to think.  even detecting breast cancer and treating it may very well be shortening the lives of women as a whole, but is certainly shortening the lives of individuals in the population, which isn’t to say you shouldn’t get a mamogram, but is to say that life can’t be boiled down into a 30 second sound bite.  No one knows where ‘the cure’ will come from.  But, We do know that buying pink crap, and walking en mas will not help.

One Way to Valhalla (2009)

why do we live the lives that we do?  eating the same boring food.  taking the same drugs.  buing the same crap, that we just throw away.  days turn into decades.  still, the same meaningless goals take priority over our lives.  Then one day, BAM! head injury.

99 francs (2007)

Ahhhhh… cynical surrealism, how you comfort me so.

Manufacturing Consent: Noam Chomsky and the Media (1992)

The far right and the far left have so much more in common than most people would admit.

Yo  holler back!  Have you been watching anything?  Or, just drawing and writing?  Somebody write a comment about this!  Recommend further watching and books and articles and shit.
