Friday Blogthing: American Reality

You remember the album cover to the Grateful Dead's American Beauty? The art is such that you can read the word "Beauty" as "Reality" (I've also heard that you can read the word "American" as "Alternate" but I've never been able to see it.)

Anyway, that has nothing to do with today's blogthing.

You've Been a Little Ruined
by American Culture

Whether you live in the US or not, deep down you're a little American.
And there's nothing wrong with loving American culture, but it may have negative effects on your life.
Slow down and enjoy what you have. Reconnect with life's simple pleasures.
You don't need to be in a consumerist rat race. Life's too short to overwork yourself!

  1. Listening to Grayfolded or 68/69 Dead, now that's alternate reality!

    garciya later!

  2. You're nothing like the typical American. In fact, you may not be American at all.

    You have a broad view of the world, and you're very well informed.

    And while you certainly have been influenced by American culture (who hasn't?), it's not your primary influence.

    You take a more global philosophy with your politics, taste, and life. And you're always expanding and revising what you believe.

    Living in Hawaii has ruined me. I'm not American anymore. :(


Your turn to riff...
