I am Edie Sedgwick and this is my little corner of the web.
A room of my own where I gather my thoughts and explore my aesthetic.

I watched “South Park” on Comedy Central last night. In this episode, “Smug Alert,” residents of South Park buy hybrid vehicles. This leads to more pollution, as “smug”—a.k.a. the alleged “I’m better than you” attitude of hybrid vehicle drivers—threatens the town. Humor ensues.

A friend of mine hates “South Park” because he feels the show’s creators erect a veneer of edginess and risk-taking around their creative product but, ultimately, they are “pretty much okay with the way things are”—global warming, George W. Bush, the war in Iraq, et cetera.

I find this assessment accurate.
