Lies Well Disguised, #5.

Yesterday, I filled up a Starbucks' venti cup with piss on Gawker. Beforehand, I ate LOTS of asparagus. A bit of a tired rant, yes, but on Sunday, the New York Times put the words "Starbucks" and "Aesthetic" together in a headline. I had to do something. (link)

I hate starbucks. Truly hate it. I always wondered why they sold CDs there. Like you need a fucking soundtrack for your trip to get coffee.

But...what would the Dunk'n Donuts aesthetic be?

Great piece.

Only time I've had a cup of 'bucks was in an airport where they were the ONLY option. I was confused by the lined up lemmings, ordering their complicated mixtures in eloquent and fluent Buckspeak.

Gotta hand it to 'em; they suckered a bunch of people.

Look at you on gawker; congratulations. I do miss Jessica though. :( She was funny.

And I still love SBUX. I'll add whatever swill they crank out to my ipod.
