      Just saw a Mini drive down the street in front of the office with a big union jack on the roof. It's a global economy. Or is homogonized a better term?

      it´s a long story of bad heroes, wrong leaders, and a mix of our own born and raised believers, heroes wannabe, misled by the never satisfied innerworking of the US. (not america, people, but United States of America!)

      Oana, please write a new Elements of Semiology someday. Any pictures of Romanian Chinatowns?

      reminds me of 1984...

      This is our land. A land of peace and of plenty. A land of harmony and hope. This is our land. Oceania. These are our people. The workers, the strivers, the builders. These are our people. The builders of our world, struggling, fighting, bleeding, dying. On the streets of our cities and on the far-flung battlefields. Fighting against the mutilation of our hopes and dreams. Who are they?

      I think I should collect some photos like those to match instead choosing a random country instead.

      Funny nothing much exists like that here - maybe it is one of the last bastions of (hope, virginity, absolution, desolution....you choose)

      not quite true

      although those images are all "american" they are still just products or media ephemera from america. you still have the good fortune of living in an european city and not an american one. architecture still makes for all the difference in the world, whether you notice it or not.

      the really sad result of this kind of media fixation is the lack of energy available after working hard to sell hamburgers and flesh all day.

      Case in point. Diane Sawyer went to Africa to interview Brad Pitt, but couldn't be bothered to visit the genocide survivors from Darfur. it's not a conspiracy exactly but it might as well be... that condi rice and her staff were roughed up a bit in darfur recently barely caused a blip, but harry potter? man-o-man. the priorities of our day are something to behold.

      the message in the photos is clear:where monies spent may or may not have consequences. Choose different channels. Fast food is a taste sensation, not nutrition. Like candy.

      In Americana, the Hustler nipples would be covered with a black plastic bag. Grab some buddies and an ideology.

      i think the wonderbra actually came from europe. what we have here is the mutant offspring of the coupling of telecommunication's deregulation and capatilism.
