      • Office
        • When deep space exploration ramps up, it'll be the corporations that name everything, the IBM Stellar Sphere, the Microsoft Galaxy, Planet Starbucks.
        • The coming out of the bin shot.
          • Brands are seen a lot in the office space

                • Worker bees can leave. Even drones can fly away. The Queen is their slave.

        • Home
          • That condo was my life, okay? I loved every stick of furniture in that place. That was not just a bunch of stuff that got destroyed, it was ME!
          • Home was a condo on the fifteenth floor of a filing cabinet for widows and young professionals. The walls were solid concrete.
          • I had it all. Even the glass dishes with tiny bubbles and imperfections, proof they were crafted by the honest, simple, hard-working indigenous peoples of... wherever.
            • How he thinks that this completes him and its improant to his life
          • Like so many others, I had become a slave to the Ikea nesting instinct.
            • It becomes addictive
        • Traveling
          • How jack  lablels everything as a signal serving friends, food and others.
          • Life insurance pays off triple if you die on a business trip.
            • Even when hes talking about dying he is thinking about money

        • Condom is the glass slipper of our generation. You slip one on when you meet a stranger. You dance all night... then you throw it away. The condom, I mean, not the stranger.
          • Our throw away culture
            • It's a bridesmaid's dress. Someone loved it intensely for one day, and then tossed it. Like a Christmas tree. So special. Then, bam, it's on the side of the road.

        • Theories
          • Fuck off with your sofa units and strine green stripe patterns, I say never be complete, I say stop being perfect, I say let... lets evolve,
          • We've all been raised on television to believe that one day we'd all be millionaires, and movie gods, and rock stars. But we won't. And we're slowly learning that fact. And we're very, very pissed off.
          • It's only after we've lost everything that we're free to do anything.
          • You're not your job. You're not how much money you have in the bank. You're not the car you drive. You're not the contents of your wallet. You're not your fucking khakis. You're the all-singing, all-dancing crap of the world.
          • Listen up, maggots. You are not special. You are not a beautiful or unique snowflake. You're the same decaying organic matter as everything else.
          • It's a blanket. Just a blanket. Now why do guys like you and me know what a duvet is? Is this essential to our survival, in the hunter-gatherer sense of the word? No
          • We're consumers. We are by-products of a lifestyle obsession. Murder, crime, poverty, these things don't concern me. What concerns me are celebrity magazines, television with 500 channels, some guy's name on my underwear. Rogaine, Viagra, Olestra.
        • Jobs
          • Tyler sold his soap to department stores at $20 a bar. Lord knows what they charged. It was beautiful. We were selling rich women their own fat asses back to them.
