Meanwhile back at the forced injection of unreality, mainlined via "Reality" TV:
The apprentice anti-hero of a celebrity real estate magnet, born from and into a silver spoon designed to feed fish shit named Caviar, hereditarily stuck perennially unwashed into his mouth, builds upon society's misfortune of that inherited fortune by using that spoonful of fish shit to grease city council members in THE fictional Metropolis cement city, into giving him the exclusive redevelopment rights for thee most opportunistically affordable areas. Those same opportunistic areas just happened to be where the heroes of our story, professional real world long time survivors, once were able to eek out a living and thus live. Unfortunately since all those areas have been systemically turned into high rise condos and office buildings that only those with said silver spoons hereditarily inserted can afford, that's also where the realtime 24*7 harsh cold reality and survival drama origins unfolded to begin.
Meanwhile Back in the Real World Reality of real Survivors:
Fast forward now and those long term reality, not drama TV one episode survivors, some now displaced going on 20 to 30 years, have adapted by hiding or sleeping during the daytime, and scrounging for inedible nutrients in the trashtime called nighttime where the reality TV junkies still comatosed into automatically watching as this self described, made-knot man, "celebrity" (quite mildly used) apprentice, continues his charade deemed to be reality and Ca,Ching! continually cashes in. His now double spooned silver offspring at his side, manicured and harmoneously crowing the praise of their daddy in his very own scripted words and language, just so that self description can continue to constantly spew forth about THE ALL in his mind, that he is! The eyes of the massses stay glued and the saga of cycles of also-es repeat and continue........ Can you believe we continue to just be comato-selly expected in reality to REALLY, just believe ALL THIS??????
* Moral of Today's Story
From first hand experience and highly recommended, it really is quite easy and enjoyable to help out. Take a stroll to any downtown where the ash did, but rubble didn't go, and drop by any of the many, Sisters of the Road. Enjoy one of their fabulous and packed lunches or breakfast, mingle and get to know any of theirs and mine, many friends. Maybe you'll meet one of the priceless and proud Artists who's work they would love to display, like I just happened, ta dun did. The pic of the painting above, signed and titled by R. Philip Duke, was sold to me at deal of a lifetime price of $10 so at the time of descending cold dusk in Seattle, he could afford to get a bite to eat. As I walked away he also told me that underneath was a second painting he even more cherished, as my gift. I have yet to disassemble to view the surprise beneath as I'm still humbled by my first of his priceless originals, adorned prominently in the taken for granted dining room of any Homed, that for me now once again, newly exists.
I wunder how long the massively voted upon American Idol Apprentice Biggest Loser from Fantasy Island Survivor could actually survive against a 30 year veteran real world survivalist on the streets left by society to them to figure out how they'll exist? Anyone know a blowhard ass(shh)ened Hollywood producer type sporting a really bad haircut, who'd have the balls to step forward and actually produce a reality show based in real world reality set in the actual environment where real caring human beings are just left for 30 years to survive like this?
