'Blue World Order'.
I haven't seen the movie and the trailer doesn't really draw me in to watching the movie either, but I do like the poster for the movie, as it sums up in a metaphorical sense something I read in Sarah Wilson's book 'First, We Make the Beast Beautiful' this week.
"Technology frees us up ... to imprison us further.
It's created the imperative to go faster, to take on more ideas, and juggle more.
There are no excuses for not coming up with an answer, and immediately.
Not when there is Google.
There are no excuses for letting something slip."
Sarah goes on to write,
"Then (big sigh), when we do find it all too much, Modern Life slaps us with a 'disorder' or disease diagnosis.
When really, it is quite fair enough - reasonable and sane, even - to find ourselves anxious when faced with Modern Life.
I mean, we're too bloody over-excited.
And as many pragmatic mothers tend to say, "Now what are you going to do about it?""
