What good is humorous poetry? Now that western culture is clearly in decline ... Our parents' generation had it better and easier than we do. Much of western culture today is derivative and boring. There's almost nothing that's still original. Everything
has already been done. Yes in the last few years there's been a few technological advances, computers get faster and more efficient. There's medical advances, advances that most now can't afford anyway.
Face it. The overwhelming tide has turned, and it's going down, down down. One hundred years ago the inventions being made - the telephone, electricity, the car, the airplane - were revolutionizing and changing the way people live. Today's inventions - faster computers and software changes - hybrid cars & cel phones - do nothing to revolutionize or make people's lives better. They mostly make the quality of most people's lives worse. Nope, more advanced nuclear bombs and smarter predator drones aren't really making our lives better, are they? But that's where many of today's 'best and brightest' focus their energies - on things that are detrimental to the planet's health and well being. Today's normal state of affairs is widespread decadence. Today there are far, far less revolutionary ideas than a hundred years ago, and most inventions that we see today aren't helping making our lives better either.
Why? Because recent generations have diminished abilities, lesser educations, and are losing the ability to think, feel, and visualize. Where are the visionaries of today? Buried and lost in corporate sauce. The arts and spirituality, ever since the Raygun daze, have been steadily going to hell. The 70s were the beginning but 1980 was the real turning point, from which there has been no return. 99.99% of today's "artists" aren't interested in humanity - they are sell out enterpreneurs. Being a "rockstar" and being a "sellout" are actually considered "cool" by the legions of todays clueless hipsters.
Not convinced? Clock what passes for culture today. A hundred years ago movies were being shown for the first time. What do we have today? More and more corporate domination of everything cultural, practically no new or inventive voices in the arts, no innovation, derivative crap permeates everywhere. If you know anything about the arts, you know that what's being shown, distributed and hyped today doesn't hold a candle to what's already been done. Fifty years from now, no one will remember anything cultural from this era, because there's no culture in this era worth remembering.
Western civilzation is in a downward spiral. Everything is declining, along with global warming ... which thanks to the Bush administration, may already be irreversable.
But that's okay. As things continue to decline and get worse on many fronts, economic, cultural, natural... we're here to shed light on today's prevailing winds of decadence ... so that you don't have to. Our fauxbrow humorous poetry is your one-stop shop for discovering what's really going on and finding out all the whys and wherefores of why so many things now suck.
Yes, fauxbrow (pronounced fo-brow) is on the loose and nobody can stop it.
Some say Fauxbrow is a term amalgamated from the newbrow art movement of today and the fauve
painting movement of one hundred years ago. Blah blah blah, no one really knows for sure ... KC Wilder is being eaten alive by fauxbrow ... word has it there is very little left of KC Wilder ... Fauxbrow has digested and spit out both KC Wilder and kcwilder.com. Rumors say that funeral services will soon be held. Probably, you will not be invited.
Be forewarned ...if you choose to continue, the choice to continue is YOURS.
