Distraction

One great big festering neon distraction.  I’ve a suggestion to keep you all occupied.  Learn to swim. AEnema by Tool

I drive a lot for work throughout the state of Florida.  During that driving, I have a lot of time to think.

Maybe it’s different in your state, but in Florida about 90% of the billboard adverts on the roads are as follows:

* Lawyer Adverts- “have you been in a car accident,” etc.  Call a lawyer before calling 911, even if you are bleeding to death.  Make sure you get that settlement.

* Religious Anti-Abortion Adverts– “after 18 days, my heart is beating”  Holy shit Christians, way to make people feel good about their predicaments.

So many people are simply distracted from what is important in life.  It’s hard for me to be angry at what I see because those adverts wouldn’t be there if it weren’t for the demand.

It’s all supply and demand.  Most of American society has been reduced to the lowest common denominator.  Just look at what entertains us, just look at what we are distracted by, just look at what we want to be.

Listen to AEnema by Tool, it’s amazingly perfect.  The end isn’t near, it’s already here.

  1. What’s that metaphor about the frog staying in the pot as it’s brought to the boil? I think you’re right, the end of this civilisation is on the way out, mate.

  2. aenima is probably the best tool song ever…about Maynard’s hate for LA, but you’re right. can really be extended to much of modern western society these days. fret for latte.
