A viking ship appears on the horizon, a likeness of Alice Coltrane carved into its bow. Rare birds flock together to sing Francoise Hardy as soul hits. A sunset of blips and bleeps fills the air.

Brilliant discourse on the pressures of complying with public or peer pressure, as driven by an Uber consumerist/capitalist society here in the Greatest Country In The World(tm).

Been reading Don DeLillo, who writes about the emptiness and capture of culture by the, media and advertising. David Foster Wallace, who I’m a fan of, often credited him as a major influence and corresponded with him. The edition of White Noise I just finished has a nice chunky afterward of essays, reviews and cortical takes on his work that has inspired further reading. This morning it led me to the French philosopher Baudillard (sp?).

On a similar note heard Roger Waters interviewed on a good radical YouTube show, about the latest media hysteria propaganda about Cuba (which I refuse to follow). In it however he effusively praised the latest Raoul Peck film on HBO called Exterminate All The Brutes. It takes its title doc the Joseph Conrad book Heart of Darkness, which I also started re-reading.

Just one more, for folks who find themselves as I do lamenting the world that Trouble eloquently described as alienating those who don’t want to participate in the trappings of the forced “fun” of summer and its attendant pressure to consume, look beautiful all the time, etc Christopher Hitchens book “Letters To A Young Contrarian” is so full of glittering nuggets for the outcast dissident. Will link some as soon as I can…

Carl Sagan (in 1995): “I have a foreboding of an America in my children's or grandchildren's time -- when the United States is a service and information economy; when nearly all the manufacturing industries have slipped away to other countries; when awesome technological powers are in the hands of a very few, and no one representing the public interest can even grasp the issues; when the people have lost the ability to set their own agendas or knowledgeably question those in authority; when, clutching our crystals and nervously consulting our horoscopes, our critical faculties in decline, unable to distinguish between what feels good and what's true, we slide, almost without noticing, back into superstition and darkness...

The dumbing down of American is most evident in the slow decay of substantive content in the enormously influential media, the 30 second sound bites (now down to 10 seconds or less), lowest common denominator programming, credulous presentations on pseudoscience and superstition, but especially a kind of celebration of ignorance.”

David Foster Wallace:
“In this country we’re unprecedentedly safe, comfortable, and well fed, with more and better venues for stimulation. And yet if you were asked, ‘Is this a happy or unhappy country?’ you’d check the ‘unhappy’ box. We’re living in an era of emotional poverty, which is something that serious drug addicts feel most keenly.”

“Fiction is one of the few experiences where loneliness can be both confronted and relieved. Drugs, movies where stuff blows up, loud parties -- all these chase away loneliness by making me forget my name's Dave and I live in a one-by-one box of bone no other party can penetrate or know. Fiction, poetry, music, really deep serious sex, and, in various ways, religion -- these are the places (for me) where loneliness is countenanced, stared down, transfigured, treated."

Adammets - they're kind of all around, if one is willing to put in a bit of effort (and literally make lists of addresses and such). For example, even in Manhattan there are still several high-quality independent hardware stores (Warshaw, Garber's, Midtown Lumber) you can use to cut your Home Depot trips down by 90 percent. Similarly, it's not too hard to find a non-chain pharmacies - if not on the next corner, then on your normal route to somewhere

Thanks, Trouble. I notice my link at 9:54 shows the Sun Ra event Saturday is being live-streamed for those not at the park that evening.
