Obsessive Consumption: What Did You Buy Today? by Kate Bingaman-Burtomphaloskepsis times two!!
seriously, i have reached the limit of my tolerance for cutie-pie hipsters who think they are the center of the ever-lovin universe.
i am through.
little drawings of little things you bought every day?? not even good drawings?? and for this you get a book deal because you have a cutie pie little blog and probably have a lot of musician friends in williamsburg? oh, right, it is all dressed up in words: a commentary on consumerism and the community of objects. oh my god - shoot me, cant you? who cares that much about you and why is this book selling?? it enrages me!
and ohhh the confession, and you can almost hear the squeakiness oh, sometimes i forced the project and bought things just cuz i wanted to draw them! hee giggle squeak.
uggggg one more useless person creating useless art about useless things while some people cant afford food. awesome.
come to my blog!
