One of two real life caucasians on display in teddy bear filled glass cases at a shopping center in #beijing, as a crowd gathered to photograph them. Somewhere, in Beijing I imagine, a group of marketing executives came up with this concept. #china #consumerculture #中国

🎶 "Cruella De Vil / Cruella De Vil / If she doesn't scare you / Then no evil will" 🎶 New rant on the blog: "21 Consumer Products You Can (Likely) Live Without." I say "likely" because our society frowns upon women with grey hair (unless she is a 20-something sporting a chemically derived version) and many women are loathe to go au naturel. The consumer products industry has done a fabulous job (on its part) creating need and selling us products that we don't actually need. This list could easily grow and fill a book but for the post I've picked 21 common products that sell by the gazillions.

That moment when you realise you've got a TV on your head.

#FeeWaybill of #TheTubes performing 'TV Is King' from their 'Remote Control' album, supporting Alice Cooper last week in Birmingham.

In their earlier years. The Tubes were banned in several towns and received front page press due to their dark, satirical stage show that spoofed America's consumer culture.

Outside of the band, frontman Fee Waybill co-wrote Vixen's 'Edge Of A Broken Heart' with Richard Marx.

Meditation on Aisle Four

Duran Duran kicked in as I perused
the bread aisle, familiar music
on a muffled array of speakers tucked
into discolored ceiling tiles, teenage memories
amongst loaves of wheat and white.

I'd meant to bake bread for tomorrow
but the hour got late and bread
is not a thing to be rushed and I was ready
to go to bed early for once

so I found myself at the store

pondering fiber and sliced or unsliced.
I went with cracked wheat because
it had less unnatural ingredients
and by now I was tapping my foot

feeling rather jaunty listening
to Simon LeBon sing about The Reflex.
Thank God it wasn't Christmas music

which is a mindfuck, a brainwash because
we need to be prompted to buy more

see how I'm already feeling content
here in the bread aisle, soothed
by consumer goods, all these comestibles

too comfortable by far so I paid quickly
and headed back out into the bracing
reality of November night and cold.



>> A Tuesday night free write. Too jumbly by half, but it might come to something in time.
