Nihilism

Failed Society

A bleak hipster clothing store on Cherokee Street. I bet there is some kid in the back on a hard chair reading Kafka's Metamorphosis. The whole look made me think of the old Fugs song Nothing. (I actually owned this album. Despite what it says on the YouTube link, it was originally issued in 1966 when I was in high school. The verses get funnier as it goes on.)

A store for the real skeptics.

They still need that failed society to keep their head above water.

This one made me laugh. I'm not sure where I was in 1966 but, I don't think I ever heard that song before but, I sure enjoyed listening to it today!
