Life is Distressing
This morning I popped out of the subway at Columbus Circle and was instantly annoyed. At the entrance to the Park was an enormous inflatable smurf and other such nonsense promoting the opening of the new smurf movie.
I don’t know why I find this sort of stuff so grating, but I do. It’s not that I find Smurfs particularly objectionable, although there are charges that the smurfs are anti-semitic fascists, or even the excessive commercialism– renting out our streets and sidewalks, and so on… I think it is the banal stupidity, lowest common denominator quality of this sort of shit.
Or maybe all the heat is making this old man cranky
