Popping Prescription Pills is, Like, So Fashionable. Like Wow.

Wednesday, January 9, 2013
Posted in category Big Pharma

Prescription pills are so fashionable among the Hollywood famous-but-depressed set that the Olsen twins (I still have no idea who these so-called “celebrities” are) have released special edition backpacks at the cost of $55,000. The bags are decorated with … colorful prescription pills that celebrate and glorify the Hollywood way. Note that Mary-Kate Olsen’s boyfriend, Heath Ledger, died of a prescription drug overdose.

    I read somewhere that celebrities are a constant reminder that fame and fortune are not the magical keys to happiness.

    It seems like today we have lots of pseudo celebrities..celebs created by reality shows as fodder for all the stupid talk shows on TV.

    I once flipped through this book in a library.

    Pills-A-Go-Go A Fiendish Investigation into Pill Marketing, Art, History & Consumption – Jim Hogshire

    Pills-A-Go-Go savors the American love affair with little gems—from Quaaludes and Prozac and Desoxyn to Viagra. Inspired by Jim Hogshire’s zine of the same name, the book version goes much further, filled to the brim with weird pharmaceutical ads and history, exposes of FDA lies, pill reviews, contents of celebrity medicine chests, acquisitional tips, and hundreds of remarkable photos and illustrations guaranteed to stop the breath of the unrepentant pill fiend.

    Here it is: a cultural study of pills. Not medicine per se nor health nor pharmacology—just pills, all pills, any pills—pills that get you stopped at the border, pills that associate you with the rich and famous, and pills that link you to skid row.

    Jim Hogshire wrote the Feral House title Grossed Out Surgeon Vomits Inside Patient: An Insider’s Look at Supermarket Tabloids. He is also the author of the following titles: Sell Your Body To Science, You Are Going To Prison, and Opium For The Masses.

    Hell,half the country is on something today, meaning many of whom you come in contact with, be they young or old, are juiced up on something. And what makes it all the more horrendous, is that via the healthcare plan, we are all supposed to pay and play our part in this massive drugging of the US. Often the drugs are responsible for creating more havoc as well.

    The masses being asses, will not clamor for cutting anything in that notorious healthcare bill. For myself I think all of them were in a room smoking a dozen bowls each when they constructed the obamacare BS.

    Starting with the pathetic puss of Pelosi. Now that I think about it, she was sort of the forerunner for Facebook and other social media. Recall that idiotic “Just pass the damn thing so then you can see what is in it”. Wow, if that wasn’t the top prize winning statement for narcissism, what is? Not to mention, a sign of a screwball in space city thinking the rest of us are on drugs and won’t see her lucy in the sky wetdream of wonderous witchery.

    Loved this article here showing just how narcissistic our country has become. There isn’t a segment of society now that isn’t infected with this dreadful, and probably, evil condition known as narcissism. As if having a zillion friends, makes one famous, or loved, or brilliant or talented or anything at all! But, we see all too often, people measure themselves by their ‘friend’ list.

    I would call that the drug de jour…take that drug baby, and you feel like you are the cat’s meow mellowed and mesmerized in the moonbeams of your midget mind. It is all so phony and so predictable and just another phase of the fashionable drugging of america. Popping names on a friend list isn’t much different than popping pills in one’s puss..in both cases, it does nothing to assure your life, either physical, psychological, emotional or spiritual. Worse, of all, these freakoids have power over us. Ck this out.

    More information than you probably need but my girls were little in the 90s so I know of this.  Twins Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen initially played a toddler named “Michelle” on the comedy “Full House” until they and the character were about 7.  That is how they came to be well known.  Meanwhile, their parents had a smart agent who created a business wherein the twins made and starred in dozens and dozens of harmless pre-teen videos which sold zillions and zillions of copies. They haven’t done much since except pop pills but they are worth a reported $100 million from their illustrious careers.

    I guess I’m out of it. The Olsen twins have been busy and are famous fashionistas.  Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen were awarded the top spot on US Vogue’s best dressed list.  Who knew?
