You know I think I had some sort of theory forming with this latest Dustinland strip but I’m not sure what it is. You are what you drink? Maybe.
I guess I’m kind of using drinks to examine the idea of what is real and what is phony or pretentious. And it’s interesting that it goes both ways. Clearly there is something obnoxious about everything pricy and organic – sort of like that South Park episode where everyone was driving around the new Pious car and creating clouds of “smug.” On the other hand, there’s something equally as annoying, if not more so with people who buy cheap stuff because it’s hip or ironic. It’s one thing when you can only afford Natty Ice. It’s another when you’re pulling in six figures and you still being crap beer to party because you think it’s cool.
Well, like in my comic that ends with a pig eating it’s own ass, I don’t have the answers. Only the questions. That and a hunger for the truth. Or should I say… A thirst.
