Appetite for Distraction – Another Day.

He wakes up. He follows an old man who leans on a cane. The old man is wearing a tshirt. Written On the back of the Tshirt is ‘Still porkin’ after all these years.’ The inclusion of the apostrophe gives a jaunty feel to an old man publicly declaring that he still fucks regularly. The man has white hair and a beard like summertime Father Christmas. The supreme court respects the religious rights…

Exclusive: Signs of declining economic security


Four out of 5 U.S. adults struggle with joblessness, near poverty or reliance on welfare for at least parts of their lives, a sign of deteriorating economic security and an elusive American dream.

FOUR OUT OF FIVE!

Although the undercurrent of the piece seems to be that it’s a problem now because white people are suffering which, it seems, is an awful indictment on manner in which the reporting of poverty happens.

Normal if it’s African-Americans and Hispanics who are suffering – that’s just their normal state of being but if it’s whites suffering – OH MY GOD – now let’s do something about it.

Unsurprising that this is the manner in which the problem is approached but no less hideous for all that.

Culture of Illusion – No one is coming to save us.


Now clearly this whole sequence, near the end of the Disney version of Pinocchio, is a delightful and subversive critique of the dark side of the American Dream.

However, the question I have to ask myself is this – when will Jiminy Cricket be arriving to save us from the Coachman?

Jiminy? Jiminy? Are you there? We’re waiting.

If you don’t come soon then we’re just going to have to go ahead and save ourselves and that is going to require effort.

Culture of Illusion – Citizen Twain


Twain-Poster-Masonic-Lodge-March-23-April-1-Q
A curious tag line for a one man play about Mark Twain.

In the words of this delightful poster – Nothing is Spared! This is something that happened in the past and is still continuing to happen. Support Mr. Kilmer’s attempts to turn this one man play into a film. The world needs this more than other things that it needs. Brainmelt.

Culture of Illusion – What is America?


We are all insane:

– The Psychological Architecture of Leni Reifensthal.

– Everyone is a star in the motion picture of their lie.

– A public holiday is a celebration of shopping and commercialism first, a celebration of the person or event in question third.

– All Weathers. All Climates. All Landscapes.

– Freedom is a shibboleth.

– Bigotry and Enlightenment walk hand in manacled hand.

– Laziness is at once embraced, venerated, criticised, aspired to.

– Purposelessness is derided and underrated.

– Drive thru banks, drive thru restaurants, drive thru drive thrus, drive thru funeral parlours, drive thru shooting galleries

– The American Dream is a mist that covers everything in a patina of greasy possibility.

– Utility is an ugly obsession.

– Teetering at the edge of an abyss.

NOTHING IS SPARED!

Not prepared emotionally to deal with seeing this today / bought tickets anyway.

Even more exciting is that Mr. Kilmer is trying to make a film so I’ve made the poster a click through link to his website. SO CLICK THROUGH. Brainmelt.

Mall of America—after taking in the Princess Diana exhibit and celebrating her tragic grace and humanitarian legacy, why not walk across the hall to Hooters?

This pretty much says everything that ever needs to be said about American pop culture.

There is perfection and there is Perfection and then there is this photograph.
