“Hey Bob, have you seen our new media room?”
In the words of the infamous Mark Douglass, “we all make choices.” And let me disclaim, I am not perfect: I wrestle with my own greed and consumption-driven self just as anyone else. But a batcave media room? Come on. You could feed an entire village for the price of this room.
This morning Kristen and I went to the gym, and while overcoming some relentless “hill” on the elliptical, I watched “My Sweet 16” on MTV. That’s right. I was the near 30 year old watching these former-Brittney-Spears wannabes and wealthy American teeny-bopper-offspring celebrate their 16th birthday with easily 10-15 times the budget of my wedding. Today, the girl got a brand new Range Rover. I’m speechless.
