The underlying thing that defines the time we live in is That everything has been “SOLD” not just industry, jobs, futures and the ground we stand on,. More fundamental: The cultural commercial obsession with Profiteering also filters down to the very fabric of Society and our expectations at all levels.,. essentially right down to our very Heart Body and Soul..

Have you Ever reflected on the “Romantic Dream” everything from Disney to Bollywood, Mills and Boon and the eternal digest of pulp romance…? Do you ever feel like you have been cheated on the dream ? SOLD is the marker for our Time ,. Everything has been sold , including you. Follow our parody of characters, the Overseas Chinese, The East End Thugs, club and Pub hiphuggers, The sweet ebony opportunists, the reflective, solitary standing, the romantics and the Domestically Mistreated and through those threads ask yourself if Everything about YOU and Your personal relationships has been SOLD ?
