Culture is not your friend!
Issue fourteen. March 1st 2012
A storm is a brewing! The (in)famous cry is ringing in my head as insane winds are blowing outside and terrifying the general population. A picture that got viral over the particles/waves of the internet in mere seconds shows a full grown tree, huge in size, that was taken out of the ground by the wind and shattered its colossal body on the asphalt road beneath it. One of the remarks on this picture, which was indeed full of awe, mentioned the upcoming of the 2012 promised apocalypse. Funny as it should be, this shows a worrying amount of the assimilation of exterior motives and ideas into our puddle of culture and unfortunate zeitgeist. More often than not, we tend to look for the symbols of things in order to prove ourselves that these things exist. In the meanwhile, from my not so comfortable chair, I long for an apocalypse, pity the poor tree and enjoy the harsh weather.
