LIFE PORN: RETARDED RETAIL

“RETAIL WE HAIL BUT IT DERAILS AND RE-SNAILS YOUR DESIRE TO FIGHT FOR WHAT YOU MIGHT BEGIN TO SEE DESERVED RIGHTLY” – from SWEET by Ted Rogers

It is easy for one to be sucked into the sickly sweet carbicide of Britains consumerist retail dreams.

I too am weak to the dark, perpetuating whirlpool of fixing on shopping and whazzing myself up on sugar snacks.

However, when I am faced with a poster like this whilst dropping the kids off at the pool, my brain instantly sees past the cheap lure of capitalist control and re-words the entire thing into a more truthful, (as I’d like to believe), version.

I thought I might share it with you:

KILL YOURSELF AT WESTWOOD CROSS,

HOW ABOUT SUPPORTING SLAVE LABOUR AT PRIMARK, HAVING YOUR PERSPECTIVE BLURRED AND YOUR EYES TORN OUT BY HARSH FLUORESCENT LIGHTING AT TK.MAXX, OR BUY YOURSELF AN ASPIRATIONAL BORING PIECE OF MEDIOCRITY AT M&S.

TREAT YOURSELF TO A BURBERRY RIP-OFF OR FIND THE PERFECT ARGOS WATCH FOR SOMEONE YOU GOT STUCK IN A CO-DEPENDENT MONOGAMOUS RELATIONSHIP WITH.

PLAN YOUR CHOLESTORAL BASED DATE NIGHT, CHILL WITH A HEART ATTACK OR KICK YOURSELF AND YOUR FAMILY IN THE FINANCIAL NUTS BY SPENDING FAR TOO MUCH ON A BELOW AVERAGE MEAL IN A CHAIN RESTAURANT! CHEEKY ;P

Have a nice day.

Love Ted Rogers “Artpornblog”
