"Junkies," photo, Ron Pollard


From a slideshow of mostly architecture -- bleak shots of prisons next to golf courses, fracking fields next to suburban homes, threatening and/or condescending billboards advertising shows of cultural figures such as Clyfford Still and Mark Mothersbaugh, and other all-American horrors. Via James Howard Kunstler.
Picked this one as an example because that's what mobile phone users look like -- junkies. Mainlining that Zucker-opioid: "hey, someone liked my status!" "Ooh, look at her baby, isn't it ugly." "Fifteen people responded that they are coming to my show!" Am truly ready for this sociological moment to be over, but no end is in sight.
