about

For years, I have been fascinated consumer culture, marketing, and the relationship between citizens and brands. Through mass media, social relationships, and even in school, we are socialized into developing brand loyalties from a very young age. Often, certain brands carry social status, and visions of success include purchasing power. Meanwhile, the newest technologies are designed with obsolescence in mind.

"Living Simple" raises questions about these relationships, in hopes that the listener might take a little time to find their own answers.

lyrics

Lately I’ve been pressed to find my individuality
Friendly brands extend their hands I wonder what they’ll offer me.

You tell me your satisfied
So how come you buy all the thing they provide
Obsolete within three years
Isn’t it clear, isn’t it obvious
that maybe they are robbing us
Now tell me what’ ms stopping us
From living simple

I think I’d be better off without their new technology
They pretend to care but I know, they play our insecurities.

Click Click, the Channels Change
I run from commercials. They’re running in circles
Around my sense of self-confidence
Something inside keeps telling me to buy
A piece of plastic paradise
I think it would be mighty nice
Living simple
