guns and butter



Mmmm, I haven't made these collages in a while. So I made two to compensate. I thought the economy analogy blog title was mildly appropriate for the times. Stats says there's an increase in violence and aggression in times of recession. I wonder if its subconsciously reflected in the trends nowadays? There is a loose theme throughout the collages; more apparent in the bottom one than in the top. Military-inspired, spikes, guns, armored-warrior rings, studs, shredded/destroyed things, fur, mean-looking things, dark and somber...

Hope everyone had some good turkey. And got some wonderful things on Black Friday...? I got up at the decent hour of 11 on Friday and went out to do some random shopping (none of that 6 AM insanity and never ever after seeing this). I don't know why I even bother, I have gone two years in a row now and its just madness, really really silly madness. I guess I just prefer shopping online or when its uncrowded, nice and quiet. Are the deals really that good?

    also love the bit of teen vogue in the first one.

  2. my mom went out and bought a kitchenaid mixer for $70 off the original price. i guess that's a good enough deal?

    maybe you just have to have your eye on something?
