nutty on the outside but dense with substance on the inside, a short collage concerning the hierarchy to be found within our culture and what we may surmise of it all. Fun or NOT according to your perspective.

with time passing we briefly tune through our cultural media and settle into a piece about listening to thoughts and then listen to some thoughts concerning our country and its history. How some currently view it all and what the prophetic George Orwell eluded to back in the middle of the last century is the heart of this endeavor. With supportive music, some satire and even an intermission thrown in.
