red panda eating bamboo

on affirmations thru advertising, and annoying trivia brains

(inspired by a comment I made in janetmiles's journal)

I have a collage on my wall that's made out of advertising slogans. I made it in 1978. Although I didn't intend this when I made it, it works as a set of affirmations - some of them are even size positive.

The annoying trivia brain part: There are no brand names in the collage, but I know what ads some of the slogans are from because I associate the typeface with the brand name. It really pisses me off that my brain stores this information in preference to, e.g., the Japanese particles it refuses to remember.
