If He Was a Celebrity Chef in the Post-Apocalypse His Apron-Embossed Catchphrase Would Be: A moment on the apocalypse, a lifetime on the apocahypse.

Three Reasons He’s Early Anticipating the Apocalypse:
(1)    The sudden thrill of discovering a forgotten vending machine in the sub-basement of an abandoned parking structure, and the ecstasy in shattering open the glass and snatching every last, shiny, blue-wrapped pop-tart out of that magnificently mundane and utterly beguiling treasure chest.
(2)    Less junk mail.
(3)    Casual Thursdays.

Summation of Aesthetic Philosophy:

We are all participants in this ongoing obscene story of misperceptions.
We are all participants in this ongoing obscene story of misperceptions.
