Too much junk?


Most of us have mountains of crap accumulating in closets and junk drawers. I’ve managed to avoid this quandry by moving three times in the last two years, and almost going overseas before finding a gig here in Vancouver. As a result, I have very little beyond some books and a computer, but back in the day my house was crammed to the gills with useless junk. Here’s a column lamenting America’s (and ours, let’s be honest) habit of consuming to the point of suffocation.

On a related tangent, go check out Adbusters. A friend of mine just joined the staff, so the more eyeballs she gets, the better.
