When news broadcasters proclaim nuclear apocalypse, global warming, the end of privacy, impending economic collapse and the rise of hate crime and social injustice every other week… anxiety becomes compulsory, and California crass becomes mandatory.
We’re all aching for that Hollywood Hills obliviousness where opulence and mindless self-indulgence is life, and consequences are best kept for the afterlife. Say what you will about binging, the one thing that we can all agree on is that it hurts so good. That fatalistic urge to over-indulge is uncannily liberating and nowadays, there’s nothing more soothing than the perfect delusion of freedom.
For generations we were taught that pleasure is a sin, that everything that tastes, feels and looks good is a threat, yet every second of the day we are reminded of our impending doom. Everything and anything has become a threat, including our own opinion. If the world has nothing better to offer than guilty pleasures, then it’s time for a guilt-trip to the City of Angels.
