Wow! SocialStudiesDC posted this today. Too hilarious! DC is filled with mindless talk like this. (And there ARE men in this city who speak with this James Spader Less Than Zero/Pretty In Pink faux-riche attitude, what I refer to as “Nasal Snobbery”).

I would have thrown more acronyms in the mix and mentioned Dupont Circle and its “Amazing!” architecture (puke), but overall, it’s on point.

Humor, James Spader, Less Than Zero, Pretty In Pink, Social Studies, Washington D.C.

  1. I too feel frustrated with the exaggeratedly materialistic mindset pervading people, especially in mainstream media and commercial venues. I am emotionally & spiritually sickened by this, it overwhelms me so. Burning newspapers (ads in the livingroom?!) to start kindling in the stove, I avert my gaze as to spare myself anymore saddness and rage in the place I call home. How not to be defined by something that forgets SPIRIT? How can I re-create myself independently from what your comments allude to? The Chinese have a saying; “The cultural halo is hollow. I know very well what I should be doing.” Hup…time to go milk the goats!


    • Instead of valuing people, ourselves, and what we can give to ourselves and each other, so many value objects and ideas of objects: watches, clothes, cars, bikes, computers, houses, etc. I need to work in order to be fed and have a roof over my head. But the rest is extra. I crave connection, understanding and love. I am learning more and more every day how to give those things more generously and more frequently. I am also realizing (sadly) that some people will try to crush me and these things that I have to offer. Our world has become so selfish.
