Best Fake Birthday Party

There was a small gathering last night at 2 Gold to celebrate Michael's Birthday. We had an ice cream cake.

Which was tricky to cut.

And Erin wore her party hood.

Photos were being taken like crazy!

It was a pretty great party!

But who is this Michael with the birthday? Scranton Regional Manager Michael Scott, of course.

Yes, I went to a birthday party for a TV character last night. What?

In societies dominated by modern conditions of production, life is presented as an immense accumulation of spectacles. Everything that was directly lived has receded into a representation.

Something has been seriously wrong with my blog today.

This happens every few Fridays.

I can't wait to be done with law school so that I can read the book where Chip gets his words from.

its from "society of the spectacle" by guy debord, the man is a genius.

thanks for the spectacular blog brigham.

now back to the quotes:

The fetishism of the commodity — the domination of society by “intangible as well as tangible things” — attains its ultimate fulfillment in the spectacle, where the real world is replaced by a selection of images which are projected above it, yet which at the same time succeed in making themselves regarded as the epitome of reality.

Thanks for the enlightened words Chip! I love Steady Mobbin' because I have access to a) Brigham's thoughts and jokes, b) Brigham's smart friends' thoughts and jokes and c) old friends I haven't heard from in a long time... ALL IN ONE PLACE! Thanks for the good times, Steady Mobbin'!

By the way, I am SOOOOO excited to see this month's figures for visitors to the site. I've been waiting a whole month to see new charts and graphs!!

Debord appeals to a deep down inside part of me that has been neglected for 2 1/2 years now. Just as soon as I get this JD out of the way I'm going to indulge.
