I was thinking about how everything gets commodified in our world. Everything including religion — and especially around religious holidays. Then I came upon a message from a salesperson at a local department store. The salesperson said, among other things, “The more you spend, the more you save.” But to my ears, it sounded like, “The more you spend, the more you’re saved.”
Here’s a new track by my musical alter-ego, M. Zapatero.* It’s largely instrumental, but the lyrics are roughly as follows: Tune your tooth to the tune of truth. Again.
On a related note, I’ve been reading Moby’s biography, Porcelain, and highly recommend it.
