Yes we tin

I know brands are basically bad*, and that American ones, being the biggest, are the baddest of all.

But I've just got back from New York, and having stood in awe before this, I can't help but feel really sad about this.


* Naomi Klein often gets right on my nerves, but I think this is a great article.

Oh I read that Naomi Klein article as well and thought it was tremendously well-argued.. made me want to go off and read 'No Logos' (ten years after everyone else).

And I had never troubled to read the detail on Warhols soup tins until you invited us to... never mind 'vegetarian vegetable', what about 'Cheddar Cheese Soup'? That sounds more like a 60s concept album than something to have for lunch... no wonder it never caught on.
