video (and song) of the week: adult consumerism

Although I think there is anything more ‘adult’ than rocking out rhythmically and emotionally to the muppets, I thought I should add a few more ‘mature’ videos to the mix, whatever that means…
As someone who is about to have to pack up half a house, I am encountering the gross mass of material possessions, so it makes consumerism, always a haunting concern, a pressing and immediate reality!
I have wanted to post the story of stuff for a while now. And so here it is!:

And coz a anti-consumerist post just ain’t the same without Reverend Billy and the gang, here is some Church of Stop Shopping for you. Gospel pinko grooves. I couldn’t find a video of this song that captures the energy as well as beauty of this song, so I’ll just link to the Rev Billy website where you can hear it for free: http://www.revbilly.com/work/music/songs/back-away
It starts off slow, but it REALLY builds!!
Enjoy!
