POTATOES!!!

While on my way to class this morning, I came across someone's visual arts project randomly placed in one of the dirt areas of campus. I'm not sure what the meaning is, but I think it's hilarious.One eyed, purple potatoes killing bags of potato chips...something about consumerism? Race maybe?

The purple makes me think of that "One eyed, one horned flying purple people eater song"

Creative enough to have them crawling up out of the ground. Hilarious! I laughed out loud; people looked at me like I was weird and kept walking; too busy trapped in their cocoons of comfort (I-Pod, cell phone, name brand clothes, dollar-worship) to realize creativity and a warped sense of humor when they see it. People are stupid...

Maybe that's the point, college doesn't educate people, it just turns them into consuming robots: Graduate, go to grad school, make lots of money so you can buy a big house, a fancy car and pay for your kids to go to private school and perpetuate the soul-robbing cycle. Meanwhile, you work yourself into the grave by 60. NO THANKS!!

For crying out loud, go do something unexpected; run away to Vegas and elope, move somewhere tropical or do something as simple as play hookie from work and lay around in your underwear all day eating junk food and watching day-time TV (or even porn!). Whatever it is, go do something that MAKES YOU HAPPY and quit worrying about what Mom, Dad or your neighbors might think. Your opinion is the only one that truly matters in the end. GET TO IT!!
