lol!
yeah, sorry. didn't mean to freak you out or anything...gets you thinking though eh?
my fave is 'affluenza' - drop it in there, I dare you! Perfect for the whole consumerist ideology side of the magazine industry. And let's be honest, magazines DO tend to encourage us to buy stuff we often don't NEED but certainly WANT. The question is WHY do we want stuff - how much of it is media and marketing driven?
