E as pessoas ainda me perguntam o porque deu odiar a Vacallotti. Cara, é simples. Antes do Thur começar a "namorar" com ela, ele tinha a ficha super limpa, nunca saia notas sobre ele desse tipo. Quando ele tava com a Luinha os jornais e afins só elogiavam o casal, nunca saia nota de briga, e quando havia algum boato eles nem se manifestavam porque sabiam que era mentira. Agora esse namoro/marketing/palhaçada/idiotice dele com a Giovacca só recebem criticas ruins, sempre saem notas horriveis sobre eles. E o pior de tudo Arthur nem é reconhecido pelo seu trabalho/talento ele é reconhecido por namorar uma atriz da globo que já fez cenas peladas numa minissérie. Ah façam-me o favor né!
“We almost always used “things” as a way to identify ourselves and to identify others. Let’s start with the human body. In traditional cultures, the art of tattooing was about social coding. A certain number of tattoos meant you’ve been married. Another number of tattoos meant that you’ve had children. This many tattoos meant that you’ve killed a lion. Nowadays, we have a tremendous emphasis on dress and makeup and in our rituals of buying. I use the word “rituals” very specifically. But our rituals of consumption are no longer as satisfactory to us … because they are empty of human relationships. There was recently a wonderful study done on garage sales. When people go to a garage sale to buy something, they actually feel very satisfied about the interaction. Most of the time, it’s because the object they buy comes with a story—a very real, personal story about where the object fit into someone’s life. Whether it’s real or not, you connect with that person through the object. So when you take the object, your purchase of it is more satisfactory. Whereas right now, when you go now to a store, there seems to be a lot of emphasis on branding that tells authentic stories in order to … sell more stuff.”—Dori Tunstall
I was working the window at a fast-food joint that had surveys you could take; once you filled it out online, you’d get a number code that could be traded for a free drink. After I handed him his order, one man asked about it. “Isn’t there a phone number you could call instead?” he asked.
I said, “No, sorry, it’s just online.”
He gave me a weird look and then said, “Why don’t you go find your manager, honey, ask him if there’s a phone number I can call.”
My manager, Danielle, assured me it was only online. I told the customer as such, and he became angry.
“Well, that’s just stupid,” he said. “I don’t have internet. I’m not going to go out and buy a computer just because that’s what’s in fashion right now. I want to call a phone number.”
I was astounded, and I didn’t know what else to say other than to repeat dumbly, “I’m sorry. It’s just online.”
“Well, good luck getting people to fill it out, then!” he laughed. “Internet surveys are scams, everyone knows that! The only way to do a real business survey is over the phone like everyone else!”
