Drinking from the Fire Hose

As is my custom, I leafed through the junk mail to make sure no actual letters or bills were interspersed between the pages. One of the items that caught my eye was an ad for Ulta Beauty products and their Urban Decay Event. Why would anyone name a line of beauty products Urban Decay? Does this stuff make you look rusty, dusty, and as if you were covered with scaling paint? How could Urban Decay ever be a good thing?

LMAO. Oh, yeah, that's what I want to wear.

Oh, no, wait--I understand now! It's targeted to zombies.

My D-I-L was over just yesterday showing me the two new U.D. eyeshadow kits she'd gotten for her birthday. It's a fairly high-dollar brand, actually - they do have some lovely shades and colors. I was a bit envious.

I have an acquaintance whose son works at Ulta and makes close to $100K/annually doing hair & makeup. The only thing I can say to that is OMFG. How utterly ridiculous. And yes, "urban decay" is hot. I dare you to take a look at Vogue or Vanity Fair. My sense is that it's because younger people know that they're screwed. While some people are perpetually optimistic, the realists look around and say "this is wrong, that is wrong, etc etc" -- and I can't help but think that popular culture and media reflect that. Otherwise how the hell would we explain the popularity of books where young people kill each other in an all-out survival effort?
