In news of the completely trivial, I replaced my broken TV yesterday. Fabulously uninteresting, I know; but get this… courtesy of the kind Samaritans at the St. Vincent de Paul Thrift Shop, it cost me the grand sum of $6. Six dollars, ladies and gentlemen! How completely insane is our frantically rapacious consumer society wherein I can purchase a perfectly good little, albeit “previously owned” TV (with stereo sound and a really fabulous picture, I might add), for a measly six dollars? Sheesh, I’ve spent more than that on a box of Bran Flakes! Surely this must be indicative of something being profoundly fucked up in the economic order of things. Not that I’m complaining, of course.
