“No Surprises” is a song by the English alternative rock band Radiohead. It was released as the third and final single from the group’s 1997 album OK Computer. Accompanied by a music video that featured a single shot of singer Thom Yorke’s head in a plastic bubble that filled with water, the single peaked at number four in the United Kingdom.”
“You look so tired and unhappy
Bring down the government
They don’t, they don’t speak for us
I’ll take a quiet life
A handshake, some carbon monoxide”
I don’t know about you but I see some similarities between the two pictures.
As literary political fiction, 1984 is a classic novel of the social science fiction sub-genre, thus, since its publication in 1949, the terms and concepts of Big Brother, doublethink, thoughtcrime, Newspeak, Memory hole, et cetera, became contemporary vernacular, including the adjective Orwellian, denoting George Orwell’s writings and totalitarianism as exposited in Nineteen Eighty-Four and Animal Farm.

So I was reading some of my facebooks page updates an came across this update from Mr. Joel Thomas Zimmerman (aka Deadmau5).Generally the artists of the world are very critical of their surroundings. Mr. Zimmerman does not prove to be different. He basically took names of Los Angeles County cities and changed them:

This is the first day of my summer job. Hopefully I’ll have a good time and meet some cool people.
I was on the metro headed for a dinner thing. I get onto the bus. Sport-jacket and jeans carrying my mac laptop case. Only standing room. People sit on the outside seat, clearly selfishly declaring both seats their own. I guess I understand, one seat is hardly big enough for one person.
We started talking about music and this was the name of a song he said that he wrote.
“Happiness from Solace”
Solace is sweet reprieve. Solace is aloneness and sadness. Solace is finding the essence of your soul. Solace is not having another person present. To find happiness from such desolation must be difficult. It is possible. But, it has its price.
So we got to talking and this is part of a future song lyric of his:
“You can fall asleep on your hand but its still not someone elses”. –
I dont know his name- nor do I ever think Ill ever run into such a person again
That is all-
Yaesterday, I took upon myself to visit ‘Urban Outfitters’ and came upon a realization. Independent culture was now being mass produced. Lets say one were to disillusion themselves into thinking that looking a certain way or doing certain things would make them “different”, then they clearly do not wish to be different; rather another by-product of propagandized consumerism.
Hypothetically, lets say a trend starts from what I create, I would be honored that people would buy the bullshit I put out there, but I would realize that anyone following my mantra, someone accepting my manifesto as their own would become those involved in yet another cycle of heterodoxy to orthodoxy or vice versa
It takes a leader to start something new. If a leader’s responsibility is to embody such an ideology and in turn the follower, then so be it.
