The Extortion of Consumerism by SteelEmissary The Extortion of Consumerism by SteelEmissary
This was done over the summer, for Denki Sai's cover of "Babylon". I want to use Denki/Galvan more soon, since I think I spam people too much w/ Caeles.

Life's about film stars and less about mothers
It's all about fast cars and passing each other
But it doesn't matter 'cause I'm packing plastic
And that's what makes my life so fucking fantastic

And I am a weapon of massive consumption
And it's not my fault, it's how I'm programmed to function.
Lily Allen - The Fear

First thing that popped into my mind when I saw the title

"I see all this potential and I see it squandered. God damn it an entire generation pumping gas, waiting tables, slaves of white collars. Advertising has us chasing cars and cloths, working jobs we hate so we can buy shit we don't need." ~ Tyler Durden, Fight Club

Like The-sphynx-82, it truely reminds me of FLCL animation OAVs :-)
BTW, I really suggest everyone to take a look at this Japanese Anime series which is very very very good!!
The TV headed guy is CANTI (originally spelled カンチ pronounced "kantchi")

Congrats for this DD :D

No, this image is kinda based on the VOCALOID song 'Babylon'. I recall Steel having a video of it on his YT channel by the same name.

Wow, that monitor is so 20th century. If he's such a big consumer, he should definitely spend some money on a newer one, because that thing is just silly.
