Stuff

It’s almost comical to see how people just seem to want to get more “stuff”.  Everyone seems like they are in the constant pursuit of things.  Worthless things.  Things that they think may give them pleasure, status, mostly a bunch of stuff they don’t need.

It just makes me think of the movie Fight Club where Tyler Durden says these two things:

-“We’re consumers. We are bi-products of a lifestyle obsession. Murder, crime, poverty, these things don’t concern me. What concerns me are celebrity magazines, television with 500 channels, some guy’s name on my underwear.”-

-“Advertising has us chasing cars and clothes, working jobs we hate so we can buy shit we don’t need.”-

You can’t really say it much better than that.  We all need to wake up and quit with the bullshit that we just keep doing everyday.  Now I know there are some genuine people out there that don’t have extra to spend on stuff, so I’m not referring to them.  I do find it funny that sometimes I see someone living in a 1950’s home with 1300 square feet and they have a 50″ TV in the living room and a $40,000 vehicle in the drive way.  What the hell?

Hey whatever……I guess.  Rock on with your bad self. [:confused smile:]

    Completely agree with you. You can’t have it all ~ where would you put it? I see people who spend their entire paycheck at one or more of those big box stores buying crap they do not need; new kitchen towels, new bedspread, rugs, clothes, wall pictures, a clock, curtains, shoes, more beauty products, hair and body products, and more and more and more stuff they really already have but want ‘new’ stuff. On the same hand, they wonder why others go on nice get-a-ways to places of interest, have a savings account, take care of their ‘old’ stuff, and enjoy the simpler things. If people would just stop and think about what it is they really need, their lives would be so much easier, less stressful, and freed up to enjoy the simple things. Just sayin’. .
