Death, Cable TV, Emotions and Hamsters

I am a week and a day old at my new workplace and so far it’s been a good ride. Even as I learn a whole new way of approaching accounts, and get used to new faces. For starters, the coffee machine is decent, and I have a big desk. I also have an Owl soft toy right below my monitor. (At some point I’ll follow up with a pic.) If it’s any help, my desk is already messy!

Among other things, I am getting into some really interesting stuff. Like this.

Le Grand Content is described thus

Le Grand Content examines the omnipresent Powerpoint-culture in search for its philosophical potential. Intersections and diagrams are assembled to form a grand ‘association-chain-massacre’. which challenges itself to answer all questions of the universe and some more. Of course, it totally fails this assignment, but in its failure it still manages to produce some magical nuance and shades between the great topics death, cable tv, emotions and hamsters.

If you’re interested this is part of what the voiceover says –

A heart full of regret on the other hand may cause a serious amount of pain
while leaving only little visible mark
just compare it with a hickey, gun shot or rejection.


Life, liberty, pursuit of happiness, for this we have our 471 cable tv channels
These and saccharine, and pop ballads provide us an unlimited source of artificial sweetness.

There are three types of virgins
a. Virgins by choice, b. virgins by poor social skills and c. people who should be in group B but claim otherwise for reasons of social prestige.

Just beautiful!
