“Look at it: A world built on fantasy. Synthetic emotions in the form of pills. Psychological warfare in the form of advertising. Mind altering chemicals in the form of food. Brain washing seminars in the form of media. Controlled, isolated bubbles in the form of social networks. Real? You want to talk about reality? We haven’t lived in anything remotely close to it since the turn of the century.”

In March of 2013, I resigned from my job as editor/producer/writer of a “geek culture” website for one of the biggest entertainment conglomerates in the world.
