Le Binge

moi

Whatever our televisual drug of choice—Battle­star Galactica, The Wire, Homeland—we’ve all put off errands and bedtime to watch just one more, a thrilling, draining, dream-­influencing immersion experience that has become the standard way to consume certain TV programs. We’ve all had the hit of pleasure after an installment ends on some particularly insane cliff-hanger and we remember that we can watch the next episode right now. It’s a relatively recent addition to the pantheon of slightly illicit yet mostly harmless adult pleasures, residing next to eating ice cream for dinner, drinking a beer with lunch, and having sex with someone you probably shouldn’t.

We Like ‘Em Big

On Mini Things and Our Consumer Behavior

why am I so fascinated by little, mini fun-sized things? My initial thought to this was simply “because they’re friggin cute“. But then I realized a startling truth…

I am so attracted to little things because mostly everything else around me is so BIG.

I know I am not alone in this mini fever. Mini’s are irresistible, adorable, and quite inconceivable to our minds because in America (if I dare say), we like thangs BIG. Because Bigger =  Better. And the bigger the whatever, the better the job you did at consuming, you consumer you.  Big cars, big tv’s, big dinners! Sigh.

Well, here’s a few post rant mini goodies:
