No Logo

Someone sitting behind me during the class when the movie came up said hey this about no logos and there is this ladies logo right there. I find it interesting no matter how indifferent you are to the logos and brands that are around us we seem to remain connected to them no matter how hard we try to distance ourselves from these so called dominating lifestyle changing brands.

I think its of a matter of choosing whether or not you want to participate in that part of the American experience. Brands have become more than just a lifestyle change, they are infused in our culture now. With Mac and Nike and other brands that almost have become a need instead of a want. It's kind of like the idea that if you are American you need a car, that is the only way to get around and extra. While this idea itself is far from the truth.

I hope that we can just decide for ourselves what way we want to live our lives and not impose our beliefs and our ideas on anyone else.
