More Stew Leonard’s kitsch

OK, I’m an adult. Not even a young adult! But I love puppets. However, I find these puppets/animatrons at Stew Leonard’s borderline depressing, even causing suicide ideation. Why do they make me feel so hopeless? Well, for one thing..what does it say about our society that we find ourselves shopping in a store with talking pink lemonade animatrons while much of the world is going hungry? There is a strange disconnect going on. I realize this is ostensibly for the children but I think it is REALLY for the bored adults. The bored Americans with all of the food.


About kinneret

Hello, and welcome. I'm writing this blog under an alias. Why an alias? I started to write what may be described as an "American Gothic" novel (sort of Henry James/ Franz Kafka with violence) with some autobiographical details. ..when I started this blog I just decided to use the alias. This blog is about art and art history, but my interests also include literature, film analysis, psychology, forensic psychology, faerie tale analysis, cognitive therapy, cognitive linguistics, classical theater, World War II, and Russian and British history. My favorite writers include Kafka, the Brontes, and Philip K Dick. Thank you for reading this blog and I will happily reply to any comments.
