Thus Spoke Miyazaki

Seems I'm in good company with my hating of consumer tech whores like my rant about the ipad a ways back...

Uber MASTER animator/director/storyteller/artist Hayao Miyazaki was recently quoted saying this about the ipad...


I’m sure there are many people who want to become omnipotent by getting their hands on this iWhatever. I’ll tell you sir, there were once a bunch of people who wore radio cassette players (those bulky things) wherever they went in the sixties. They wore it like a priceless emblem.
They’re mostly probably living off of pension funds now, but you and them are the same. You jump at the newest gadgets, and all you do is relish the pride in owning one as some consumer.
You must not becomes a consumer. You must become someone that creates.

 I think Picasso said some Thang about the importance of creation too...but yeh a consumer whore is gonna be a consumer whore... but if yer on the bubble think twice... spend yer life clicking on a screen creating nothing? Or????

  1. Sex my face?! WUT?!

    True dat. Everything BUT the sexing your own face part. There's nothing wrong with buying something rad from time to time. But come the fuck on! What the hell is up with some of this garbage? I was talking to someone who owns an iPhone. They pay almost 150 dollars a month for that thing. I want to throw up for paying forty a month... I couldn't imagine shelling out an additional 100 bucks for a thing that makes phone calls.
