I intended to write a new post ages ago. Since the last one, though, I have become increasingly depressed and despondent over the state of the Earth. It seems to me we humans can only choose between things that are bad for the environment and things that are "better" for the environment, but that in fact very little we do is actually good for it. With that in mind, here's something I've been grappling with, in the form of a poorly-recorded, technologically frustrated little ditty.
recycling's a sham
they can't recycle all your jam jars or your CDs
or the newspaper you don't read
or even all the stuff that they tell you that they can recycle
cause in fact it all sits around
recycling's a joke
well i guess it's better than nothing
but really what it is that really we all need to do
stuff can't make you happy
stuff can't love you back
but your neighbours
don't need that funky gizmo
don't need that new TV
but your mom is lonely
and loves it when you call.
see you next time, when maybe Pro Tools will decide to play nice with Vista (not likely).
