Is what you buy on literally trash?

Buy local or buy less…” should be everyone’s motto. You’d have to be a complete dimwit if you are asking why your town is slowly becoming a generic dying cliche. Drunken internet shopping, and I’m not just talking about boozing up and spending money you don’t have on stuff you desire. I am talking about consuming. Each one of us, an entity worse than the “fictional Dracula“.

It’s your worst nightmare come true. Everyday billions of consumers are trying to satisfy a desire of obtaining, collecting items waiting to become trash or worse – trash you are willing to pay top dollar for! Buying things that you just store away hoping that one day someone in the future will think “this is the greatest item ever made” (eg: those mini stuffed creatures that everyone thought would make them millionsI think McDonalds are still giving them away for free).

I’m not even sure why I’m on this rant. Maybe I was set off by a local FB post of the needs of an orphan whose good samaritan spokespersons top priority was asking for an Xbox! Technological consumerism, over perhaps – a secure home and a loving family to fill that tragic emptiness?…

The Jetsons vs. The Simpson- a theme song showdown

Woke up this morning with the theme song of The Jetsons in my head. After humming a few notes my husband started humming the theme song of The Simpsons. It turned into a pretty great duet, but then somewhere in the middle it all just became one jumbled mess. Then neither of us could hum either song without messing up.

Then just researching it I found this…

But then we got stuck on some Oingo Boingo playlist and this song came up… totally creeped outTyrion Lannister cameo?!? – not sure- what do you think?

Fahrenheit 451

“But you can’t make people listen. They have to come round in their own time, wondering what happened and why the world blew up around them. It can’t last.”

— Ray Bradbury, Fahrenheit 451: A Novel

There are some books that should be read every year. Fahrenheit 451 should be one of them.


“Fish are cannibals…”

— Linda Vigil

This thought randomly popped into my head over coffee, but wow my mind was on fire! How many other animals are cannibals? I love fishing but hardly eat fish… 😵 🐟

Updated 7pm: I think fish is the theme of the day. Collective cosmic unconsciousness. Went to the post office & the local brewery and both places people were talking about fish. Just like in Repo Man “plate-o-shrimp”.
