Be Acknowledged with Pathway to Paris: Earth Day 50
Paranoia about obsolescence is something we have all felt. It’s a fear no longer reserved for those prioritising their bone density.
The exponential nature with which technology is progressing and the repeated epiphanies our loved ones seem to keep having about our terrible personalities and sick proclivities mean that as of 2020, we’re more vulnerable than ever to an existence without a purpose to serve and people to validate us.
While in a certain sense it’s comforting to accept your inherent uselessness to wider society, the fact remains that being an occasional tool for others is the only way to get your own crankshaft hardened.
When there are few viable ways to continue to be relevant in a society constantly progressing away from you, there’s only one thing to do: gather every last shred of clout you have left and paste your image all over whatever moral cause the world is currently fetishising. Enter: Pathway to Paris Earth Day 50.
Settle in and experience a virtual festival for our planet, celebrating the 50th anniversary of Earth Day, the world’s largest environmental movement! The brilliant lineup will feature Jesse Paris Smith & Rebecca Foon, Michael Stipe, Patti Smith, Flea, Tony Hawk, Ben Harper, Cat Power and more!
Take a lesson from the masters of cheating obsolescence. And don’t forget to continually use the word ‘hashtag’ aloud in conversation.
It might feel like what you’re saying is inherently meaningless.
Hold on to that feeling. It means you’re doing it right.
