yeah...why i don't do graphics

I was convinced I was on this righteous path. Now I realize that there is no righteous path. It’s just people trying to do their best in a world where it’s far too easy to do your worst.

Graphic designer student here: Do you rich people know it's all marketing? Those loafers don't cost $1200 or whatever, that champagne has a production cost of like 5 dls and they're selling it to you for like 50x the price. You know why? Because you silly people are brainwashed by marketing professionals to think because it costs more it's better. Trust me, i have done it (on school works, would never do it IRL, i think Marketing is evil)

Yeah yo it’s literally the spectacle (by the way I’m gonna take this opportunity to plug Society of the Spectacle because it does a lot to explain consumerism and is a great step if you’re already into art history or social theory and you’re interested in a radical implementation of that theory)
