Australia, if you have never been here before you’d be foregiven for thinking that this place was as friendly a place as any. The truth beknown it’s turning into just as vile a place as any. Children left at home, coming to adulthood as drunks or worse still homeless and destitude. Their only choice for survival is to joing gangs to survive. Kids get attracted to colours. Let’s face it, they are inviting. They are a memory of a time when we were kids and the lollies were wrappe in bright colours. Packaging hasn’t changed all tht much. They have packaged “alcopops”. Fed the kids with their instinct and kept their hands clean by saying it’s their ow free will that bought it over the counter. These once well mannered kids have gone stupid on the shit. They are clogging the hospital emergency rooms with their inability to hold a night’s drink. In the old day’s if you coldn’t hold your own then you were told not to. Now it’s drinking to excess. There is no future. I think Bill Henson’s new works should have his adolescants with bright coloured filled bottles in their hands, with Henson’s trademarkblue television screehn in the backround. But that would only make it easy for the Anti Henson League to say he is “glamourizing teen beligerence”.
The truth is alcohol is great to remove ink stains from your dry wall. Try it some time. It cuts through it in seconds. It doesn’t mess around and the ink compunds don’t stand a chance. So why would you want to fool around with the booze? It’s great with a meal. It’s fantastic in moderation but when you do it on an empty stomach and you keep doing it without coming up for air you know it’s going to mess with your insides quicker than if you were to going dancing in the middle of the street. Knowing that you are drunk you don’t notice that you are in the middle of the street dancing because you are in the E.R wondering how the hell you got there, and you can’t feel your legs.
The truth is that the kids don’t really care very much. Nothing much has changed really. that is just the niavete of youth, the carefree outlook. Alcohol has always been there you say. True, then the kids keep doing the wrong thing everytime they mistreat it. That has always happened. So what’s wrong with it stopping? The kids are our future. This has been harped on many times in cheesy songs but who’ll take over when we are all too senile to remember where we left our minds let alone our underpants? The kids. They deserve better. Imagination, inspiration and idolation is all lost when you are drunk. Idolation when you are drunk is only for the wrong reasins and by the wrong people. the joke is on you.
Alcohol takes your control skills and leaves it to shit. So you like to be out of control do you? What can be so bad that you need to drown it out with booze? Is your life so bad sober that you need to enhance it drunk? The tragedy with this message is that it’s great that it’s on Red Bubble but Red Bubble is chock full of the artistic types who are open and free thinkers. Not the normal. We can eliminate the future by having less Jackson Pollock’s and Vincent Van Gogh’s.
