Creepy moments in the Surface World Empty

I cannot avoid the pop culture. It seeps into my life.

I found it creepy to learn that the new princess, Kate Middleton has spawned lookalikes. Each was wearing her dress and saying "I'm Kate Middleton" in the same voice.

These creepy things reveal so much about the mass culture.
People become mass produced commodities. The more a person/commodity is in demand. The more people want to BE it.

Not to mention, every dress designer in the world was waiting to see the wedding dress so they could race to put Middleton clone dresses on the market as quickly as possible.

Sad.

What are some telling moments for others?

I spent a good portion of last night wracking my brain for amusing little anecdotes and eventually resigned myself to the conclusion that "it goes to show how thorough-going the creeping normalcy of mass culture really is!". Not five minutes later, I walk in on my parents watching the BAFTAs just as the production team from the ITV are recieving an award for their coverage of last year's killing spree in Cumbria (Northern England). 30 seconds of footage, quick speech by the producer, raucous applause... Best Supporting Actress in a Period Drama. Brave New World moment if there ever was one.

And as far as the wedding was concerned... At least the media was far more explicit than usual about what it was we were supposed to feel. Although that did take some of the fun out of deconstruction, I guess.

Also, I don't know how it is in the United States, but something I find particularly disconcerting over here is the ubiquity of professional photographers in nightclubs, nowadays. I've only been old enough to start frequenting them for a couple of years now, but even in that short space of time have I noticed an appreciable increase.
