***SPOILER ALERT*** Game of Thrones plot-line revealed in the video. You have been warned.
What’s ironic about this post, is that I just started watching “Game of Thrones.” As I usually do when dealing with heartbreak, instead of escaping into substance abuse, I escape into the world of TV for a day or two and binge on two or three seasons of a tv show. Yep, probably not the healthiest, but it helps me cope. Yet, I’m glad I’m not the TV addict I was in my teens. So much time wasted watching stupid shit, fills me with regret.
Last year I took a break from activism, to work on my website, quit smoking, and get in some sort of shape. In the evening I would curl up with my laptop and watch hours of TV shows to relax. Then I caught myself “holy fuckin shit, it is happening again”
All this to say, that the promise of the personal computer / mobile phone + the internet, as tools of two way, global communications, free information, blah-fuckin-blah, have become the new passive one way mass hypnotizer that TV once was, sedating billions with non-reality, while the fuckers up top laugh all the way to the bank. “Feel of poppies” reminds us of this.
