    (because I locked them in my basement to conceal my own shame)

    Wow. It’s been a real long time since cat ate paint. I always wonder what paint taste like. I also wonder if he actually put hot sauce in the paint. hmmm.

    I would call this one “Your Personal Brand.”

    Well I’ve drunk paint water more than a few times by accident- there’re worse tastes to be honest.

    As for not self promoting there’s a lot to be made from not self promoting; if you don’t then you are exclusive, a secret of sorts and that makes you more desirable to the ‘hip’ -who needs obsolescence if you can be scarce used through secrecy!

    But even then, they have to promote themselves just enough to get word-of-mouth, but not enough to be considered “selling out”. It is a difficult balance.

    I want to know more about Cat’s family.

    If you sell stuff on eBay, do you have a bidness?

    Does anyone else notice the can’s picture? :P ftw.

    Pheobsky: That’s a marketing technique, not an abstention. I refer to exclusivity rather than drinking paint.

    Erika: Perhaps not on a philosophical level, but if you try to think philosophically the man from the IRS will come to your house and take your CDs away.

    Rory: Yeah, this is the consumerism that needs to happen. Cat and Girl-brand paint in twenty shades of grey.

    I imagine the paint is simply a pigment of his imagination.

    I love how Cat puts the bucket under his arm like a briefcase or brochures for something he’s promoting (and that Dorothy thought to add the detail of paint pouring out of it)

    I once ran into a stoner friend I hadn’t seen in ages. She told me she was getting into Hermitism: an life-style choice based on… well. You get the idea.

    She described it as a subversive anti-consumerist kind of thing. It sounded very zeitgeisty. I wondered why I’d never heard of it before, then realised that by its very nature they aren’t going to advertise so much.

    Every time Cat eats paint it makes me want to eat some more and more.

    Y’know, just to try it…
