Aesthetic Violence

Category: Not Wholesome!!! — Biella @ 10:33 pm

Well well well. If it was not enough that Walmart has ruined the lives of countless women all over the country, now the are going to go South, and along with all their usual shady labor practices, they are going to conduct serious aesthetic violence by opening a big fatty outfit in the city of Teotihuacan otherwise known for its stunning ruins. Teotihuacan, also known as -The Place Where Men Become Gods- should be renamed to something like Walmart: Where QUETZACOTL *– shops.

Worse is that “the national anthropology institute that oversees the ruins says the building poses no threat.” Blargh

But really, as my friend dmh sardonically reminded me on irc today there is a sliver lining to this dark cloud. “On the plus side,” he said “you will be able to conveniently develop your photos of the sacred ruins.”

The God of Convenience has indeed become one of the scariest, ghoulish gods of our times…

* Aztec God of Sun and the Air

ps– Thanks to Anne for bringing this to our attention.
