the ‘shopping is overrated’ comment reminded me of this line from the man who has already written everything there is to write about shopping.
let’s hear it from Rem:
“The only activity is shopping. But why not consider shopping as temporary, provisional? It awaits better times. It is our own fault – we didn’t think of anything better to do. The same spaces inundated with other programs – libraries, baths, universities – would be terrific; we would be awed by their grandeur.”
