the angst of modern cultural addictions permeates my existence. The dictates of mediated culture, the dictates of self are so commingled they are indistinguishable, inseparable. where i begin and end is lost.

i allow myself to be DIVERTED via my consumptive behaviors which in turn neutralizes me as a factor in self or social change. i have become IMPOTENT. with an increasing sense of my own powerlessness, my attitude of ENTITLEMENT becomes all the more overwhelming. consequently leading me back to the desire for the acquisition of additional consumer GOODS where i can exert my CONTRL in the power to CHOOSE red or blue!
