Dirty, Mean and Mighty Unclean

Is all the world a game? All the “good” and “bad” simply a neatly-filtered and filed control panel at your Smartphonefingertips with slick bubbled programming? Our tech-savvy Corporatist leaders seem to think so. Broken up into Science, Medicine, Politics, War, Music, History, and the Strange*… This week, as the country proper seems to be stewing with sentiment, boiling over like a burned chili, with phrases like: “Show me the money” and “What’s all this brouhaha?” and “Get ON with it!”… we continue to ask questions that provoke a certain underlying implication, and answer not with indictment or outrage, but with a beat and you can dance to it.

Can you dig it?
