This is how short the 12 year olds are wearing their skirts. Also, it is taking me a lot longer to finish the second scarf. I'm about a foot away from completion. Happy HNT! (And sorry about the dirty mirror, lol)

If you try not to offend anyone, then by definition you stay as middle-of-the-road as possible.
This blog, while a little bit "out there", is rather milktoast (or is it milquetoast?)
(Sure there have been exceptions.)
And I've realized too, that to sell products to the largest population segment, your advertising must tend to the middle.
And since news has become a business, we see what the "the widest audience" would be interested in.
It's like everything in our culture and society thrives on banality and mediocrity. (Doesn't every respectable town have a Walmart, Mickey D's, Subway, Home Depot and Drug store?)
I maintain that this is why art is so important, because art tends to offend our sensibilities and challenge our prejudices.
I don't know, our culture just feels stagnant to me sometimes or even worse, degenerating. Sigh.
